Overheard at … Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

February 28, Wasted Space

“Shhhh!” That’s what Whigs’ bassist Tim Deaux, standing in the crowd, said to folks trying to pester him about after-show plans during the last song of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s two-hour set. Following the Whigs’ opening performance, BRMC rocked the cramped club, inviting a sing-along on “Shuffle Your Feet” and building energy to a climax before slowing things down for a muted closer that read like a lullaby. Chatter picked up as the band picked through its final bars, but Deaux waved off all conversation, pointed to the band and, with a smile, watched them take it home.

  • Conor Oberst & Co. have been storing up plenty of anger.

  • Opening act Braids was so good, the synth-pop duo is lackluster by comparison.

  • Talking the new album, how Vegas is like "New Orleans on steroids" and a job offer from the Blue Man Group.
