Late of the Pier in the zone at La Zona Rosa

19 03 2009

Shrouded in darkness, the quartet Late of the Pier stacked its synthesizers high at La Zona Rosa on Wednesday night. These Nottingham, England natives set up slowly, but its performance was well worth the wait.

Once the stage lights turned on, the synth saviors put on a beautiful mess of a show.

Garbed in a glammed out trash bag, lead singer Samuel Eastgate’s sharp, shrill vocals swarmed the audience.

Eastgate’s lyrics collided with spectacular drumming and bouncing beats, but his stage antics made him prevalent.

The show peaked when Eastgate threw down his guitar and began drumming symbols with a single drumstick. That was minutes before Eastgate wrapped his microphone around his body and flung himself into the crowd.

It’s not really surprising that it takes Late of the Pier so long to set up; it’s because they take the time to tear it all down.
