Last Thursday night, Boston’s Royale had the honor of hosting the first concert of Car Seat Headrest’s North American tour. The announce of the tour coincided with their rerelease of their 2011 studio album Twin Fantasy. The album first brought CSH their cult-like following, and their Thursday concert proved that, eight years later, the following is still alive and well. For the whole month of February, the group will be touring across the U.S., with guest appearances along the way by Interpol and Snail Mail.
In the hours before Adrianne Lenker’s Wednesday night concert at the Sinclair, a blanket of snow covered the streets of Cambridge. A snow-muffled world was the perfect meteorological prelude for the evening, in which Lenker’s soft and mysterious sound touched the mind, body, and spirit of a mesmerised and adoring fan-packed room.
