Earlier this month, we had the absolute pleasure to watch Pinegrove show us why they’re going to be the biggest band in the world.
Fresh off of a massive tour off their outstanding record, Cardinal, Pinegrove sold out the Market Hotel in Bed-Stuy nearly two months in advance. With a beautiful view of the J and M trains passing by behind the stage. Pinegrove played with the might of an army to an equally impressive army of spectators, who sang along to every single word.
Along with Sports (the powerpop band, not one of the other three), the Market Hotel was a sweaty and beautiful mess of youth who reveled in the magical alt-country tones that are so unique to Pinegrove’s sound that they need their own genre terms to describe them.
Both bands, as well as the openers, Horse Jumper of Love and Half Waif, put together a show for the books when Pinegrove becomes the biggest band in the world a few years from now, as they just played Lollapalooza and a set on CBS 2.
You can check our pics from the show below and see Pinegrove for yourself when they play Irving Plaza with Kevin Devine and Petal on December 8.
