Heaven Was Full…Cold Cave
Photo Essay and Review

Text and Photos: Saul Torres

Cold Cave’s tour is almost over, and I’m glad they played here, because I missed them last year for some reason I don’t remember. Douglas J. McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb opened the show. At the beginning it was alright, but the second half of his set list was incredible. I think he was saving the best songs for the last part.

Wesley Eisold’s performance was deeply dark, and interesting on how the stage was just illuminated by a soft series of images and black and white videos. He reminded me Curtis, mixed with Morrisey, and a touch of the Nick Cave’s poetry. Dancing alone in the stage while the music was played by a beautiful girl, Wesley’s voice was getting deeper and deeper into the crowd, turning them on, and making them move in the darkness of the venue. I really love when they don’t turn the lights on when bands are playing at this venue. This time, the crowd was better than past shows, actually I was not expecting too much fun that night, but it was a great night. After a 50 minute set list, the show was over, and Wesley was already chilling with the people at the venue.
