The Antlers

30 September 2009 - DC9, Washington D.C.

When Sunny Day Real Estate, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are all playing the same night in DC, and you can still sell out your show at (admittedly small) DC9, you’re probably doing something right.  The Antlers played a great set, to an excited crowd.  My fears that their melodic, sometimes soft, often swooping,  and always well produced songs wouldn’t translate well to a live show were completely put to rest.  They came hard at times, but went quiet too, and Peter Silberman’s voice is just as strong as it is on the album.
