Brooklyn’s Purgatory bar was home to the musical onslaught of local bands Weeping Icon and Stuyedeyed last week for an amazing sold-out show.

 

First up was Weeping Icon who literally spilled off the stage and into the crowd with half the band playing on the floor. The dimly lit atmosphere of Purgatory perfectly fit the doom heavy experimental rock vibe they’ve built a reputation around. But this was also the first show for Heather Elle who was mixing/tweaking sounds, and Kate Mohanty who added sax to the overall sound to help close the set.

 

I’m not sure how, but Stuyedeyed managed to fit the full 5-piece band, complete with 2 drum kits, on the stage along with their own light rigs but they did. Having seen them recently at Bowery Ballroom I knew it would be a challenge to contain them and sure enough it was, spilling out to the floor. The floor itself was of course a frenzied pit for most of the set. Stuy definitely puts on one of the best live shows out there right now and people would be wise to check their tour schedule and catch a show wherever they can.
