Before Wolf, the Rabbit even started playing on Saturday night, patrons were tripping all over the massive amount of gear that had filled the booths and spilled out onto half of the dance floor.
This five-member noise-heavy band filled every corner of that venue with sound. With countless synthesizers, boards, and who-knows-what crowding onto the stage, it’s a miracle they didn’t blow the power.
But it was totally worth it. Wolf, the Rabbit created a sound that was equal parts post rock, electronic, and experimental. This insane mess bellowing from the stage somehow came together as a cohesive work of beauty. These are very talented musicians. The drummer was tight, and the guitarist was fast (yet showed great restraint). Talk about control of your powers! This clamor never ran into any turbulence, and even a seven-minute song had great momentum.
It doesn’t hurt that they had such a chill and tranquil onstage presence, either. This was an incredible feat considering their hands were never idle, constantly flying back and forth between pressing down on guitar strings and grazing keyboards (or fiddling with an array of wires and buttons).
Here’s what the band (comprised of half Lawrence, half KC musicians) sounded like. They should play with Forrester.
