Linfinity and Lissie Trullie at Mercury Lounge 02-11-09

We do not have any photos to post from last nights show at Mercury Lounge...mostly because the girls in front of us made it nearly impossible, as they snapped photos of themselves, chatted with each other and shoved people throughout the performance.  

The show in itself was enjoyable.  Lissie Trullie rocked the house.  Playing all of the tracks from her EP, Self-Taught Learner (it was a record release after all), she won the crowd over quickly.  The music was over in less than an hour, and most were happy with that.  The nine song set ended with the (arguably) best track on the album, the title track.  

As good as Lissie truly (mhm) was, the night belonged to openers Linfinity, who's passionate Antony and the Johnsons meets Clap Your Hands Say Yeah meets Arcade Fire intelligent rock onslaught had us so very excited.  Even more so when singer Dylan Von Wagner mentioned that there were free CD's in the front of the house...And even more excited when I found this free EP download (be sure to click on discography) on their website when I returned home!

The band looks to have recently signed with Secretly Canadian. Keep and eye or two on them. Watch that video up there, too.
