CocoRosie @ Glasslands, 5/2311
It was a dark and beautiful evening in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Perfect weather for a CocoRosie concert. As I stand outside waiting to get in I can’t help but notice how many people are in line, which spans around the corner as we all wait to get into this sold out event. Slowly but surely the line moves and I finally manage to get in. Once in, I take a look around at the venue which is quite small but cozy never the less. I manage my way up to the front of the stage and now its time to just sit back and relax and wait for the magic to unfold, as they say.
The first of two opening acts that hit the stage was this southern gentlemen from South Carolina who goes by Zacc who mostly played some unique instrumental chords on his folk guitar. Then came the second act, this petite woman with this very large and strong voice called Diane Cluck, her beautiful voice had the crowd in ups.
After almost two and a half hours already, standing patiently waiting, it’s time for the headliners to take the stage. The room completely goes dark and amongst the fog, hop-out two gorgeous ladies covered in white robes. CocoRosie has hit the stage.
They started off playing one of their many hits called “Terrible Angels” from the La maison de mon rêve album, creating the perfect vibe to start it off. Amongst the other songs they played that night were “Lemonade,” “Werewolf,” “R.I.P Burn Face,” “Undertaker,” “Tekno Love Song,” and ended with an encore performance of “Rainbow Warriors.” So to sum it all up, CocoRosie was so much fun livet with their toy instruments, indie opera, big white rappers and crazy costumes.
