Gallery: black midi at The Sinclair

It’s hard to describe a black midi concert. It begins almost like a boxing match with an unbelievable introduction over the PA. Finally the band comes out and gets themselves pumped up on stage. From there it’s over an hour of genre bending music with influences ranging from post punk to free form jazz to new wave to prog rock. They move through each one with such ease and the crowd loves every minute of it. From the opening notes the floor becomes a complete mosh pit and you are either going with it or you are retreating to the back of the room or the extreme sides. When the show ends you are in complete disbelief of what you just witnessed and all you know is you have to see it again. This all took place on Monday to start the week with a bang in Boston. If they come anywhere within striking distance of where you live, this is a must see affair. L’Rain opened the show with a great set of looping vocal work with her band backing her with experimental jazz rock. The combination made the crowd pay full attention and give quite the ovation once the set ended.
