Post Animal played a sold out show at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on Wednesday. The Chicago based band kicked off their North American tour in April in support of their new record, When I Think Of You In A Castle.
Post Animal’s live sound is somehow even more immersive than on the record, but maybe that is because the boys bring such great, infectious energy to the stage. Opening with “Gelatin Mode,” they launched into an incredible set, full of material off of the new record. As the gig went on, the crowd grew rowdier and rowdier, with the boys eliciting one of the most excited and fun New York crowds that I’ve been a part of. Post Animal stayed smiling and hydrated (pictured) through their killer set, and blew everyone away again, playing a few more songs, including an insane performance of “Goggles,” in a highly requested encore.
