12.08: The Glass Set @ Great Scott
I don't remember exactly when I first saw The Glass Set, but I remember that it was earlier this year, in some shitty warehouse here in Allston. The show was packed with kids in face paint and trenchcoats and if I wasn't with friends who knew where they were going, I would have thought I was lost -- the last place I wanted to end up was a goth party. The band ended up going on really late that night, well after I had crossed my drinking threshold, but what I heard were songs that despite being rough, had a ton of potential, drawing on a host of post punk influences from Echo & The Bunnymen and Interpol to Siouxsie & The Banshees. The band takes over The Pill this Friday, playing selection from their new album, which is slated for release early next year.
