Twin Shadow Tours Confess at Venue Nightclub in Vancouver BC

George Lewis Jr, aka Twin Shadow, and his band are touring their sophomore album Confess, and hit Vancouver BC on August 11 2012.
While his live rendition of “Five Seconds” was charged with high energy and gusto, overall I didn’t think the live show added much to his already full, lush, inviting sound.
Lewis Jr is a fantastic, engaging performer, kicking his guitar pedals like he wanted to break ’em, but his band (bassist, keyboardist, drummer) were just going through the motions. Perhaps that was the forethought plan: they shouldn’t take any attention from the main man.
But I’m a visual guy, and wanted more than an attractive lead singer with sharp lighting (thanks to Twin Shadow for bringing a pair of bright white lights, sitting low at either corner of the stage – this made for some nice photographic opportunities!).
I was on assignment for Scene In The Dark.
