Wednesday night one of my favorite groups in the last few years, The Antlers, came to Water Street Music Hall in Rochester and played a fantastic show. The Brooklyn trio, playing as a quartet, released one hell of an album in Burst Apart in early 2011 and an EP earlier this year entitled Undersea, both met with high acclaim. It was nice to see them back in Upstate NY since they last played The Ninth Ward here in Buffalo back in 2009.
They did their fans well in splitting up their new material with a lot of the old as well. They played the entire Undersea EP in stunning fashion and also chose many songs from Hospice including “Kettering,” “Silvia,” and “Shiva.” Not to mention playing an awesome rendition of The Mountain Goats’ “No Children” which was a welcomed surprise.
