The Kills played an electric set at Terminal 5 on Monday night (August 8). Emerging onto the stage dressed in their signature black attire, the duo launched into “No Wow,” settling everyone in for some unabashed rock n’ roll. Sinking their teeth into the new material, half of The Kills set featured songs from the magnetic Blood Pressures including “Future Starts Slow,” “Heart Is A Beating Drum,” “Baby Says” and “Satellite.”
When it came to singing “DNA” guitarist Jamie Hince plainly stated “this is dedicated to my wife” while the audience cheered in approval (his wife being Kate Moss in case you missed it). Toward the end of the show singer Alison Mosshart sang a cover of Marilyn Monroe’s “One Silver Dollar,” which she admitted is “one of my favorite songs.”
Between Hince’s intensity on the guitar and Mosshart’s vigor, the two have an unrivaled stage presence. Mosshart jerked and writhed on stage while a little fan blew wind into the singer’s hair, adding to the intensity as she sang. The crowd was moved – with everyone dancing ’til they got enough.
Opening for The Kills was A Place To Bury Strangers and The Pains of Being Pure At Heart.
