Photos: The Whore Moans & The Ironclads @ Cafe Racer

There’s something to be said for big crazy shows where the music drives everyone on and offstage nuts. If you take two bands that incite intense audience participation and put them in a tiny place like Cafe Racer, you get what happened last night at the unannounced show thrown to celebrate the opening of Cafe Razor, the new salon inside the Cafe.

Even better than big thrashy concerts are small intimate shows where half the audience consists of friends of the band and the rest of us are die-hard fans. Last night felt more like a party than a show, with the best music imaginable. The Ironclads are a tremendous live band – I loved their set.

The Whore Moans are a scorching and talented band and their live shows are insane. Last night one encore turned into two, then three, and the night ended with the swiftest version of “Wolf Spider” imaginable.
