Au Revoir Simone/Class Actress @ Highline Ballroom, NYC 1/7/10
It was ladies night at the Highline Ballroom last night, the Chelsea club putting together a bill anchored by relatively longstanding, dreamy keyboard trio Au Revoir Simone, and a launching pad for singer-songwriter Alexa Wilding and the highly promising Class Actress — a project taking its cues from ’80s pop and the sound of its vintage synths, fronted by the memorable presence of Elizabeth Harper’s vocals, signed to Chris Taylor’s Terrible Records. As Kyle Dean Reinford‘s photos show, Au Revoir made it snow — quite literally — and as that lead pic captures, ARS invited Elizabeth and Alexa for an a cappella cover of Kylie’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.” We have some video of that moment, photos of the night via Kyle, and a take-away sample from Class Actress’s excellent debut EP Journal Of Advocacy.
