APTBS Part 2
A Place to Bury Strangers @ High Watt, Nashville
Hunters, the punk-flavored openers. Sadly I didn't get any good shots of singer Isabel Almeida crawling and/or writhing around on the floor. The only thing I didn't like about Hunters were Isabel's pockets hanging out from underneath her short jean shorts. I refrained from asking the bartender if I could borrow scissors and climbing onstage to snip off the offending two inches of fabric. It bugs me more than it should but I did not fixate because the music was too good for such triviality.
And then A Place To Bury Strangers came on.

This is me staring at the empty stage hoping that they'd come back out (they didn't).
