The Rapture : Live @ SPINHouse, NYC – 9.20.2011

It was October 24, 2003 at Roseland Ballroom in NYC where I first witnessed this band opening for The Mars Volta who had the most enthusiastic cowbell player ever. Fast forward to the Summer of 2007 (The Bloghaus Summer of 69) at Coney Island, the cowbell strikes back – this time opening for Daft Punk, which brings us to 2011. The cowbell is still going strong, this time armed with 3 cowbells, The Rapture are back and stronger than ever. I had the pleasure of being invited to SPIN Magazine HQ to witness an intimate set from The Rapture as part of the SPINHouse music series. It was a short but super energetic set from the trio featuring all the hits. “How Deep Is Your Love?” sounded quite epic live and definitely a highlight, but to hear that classic tune “House of Jealous Lovers” brought me back. I will let these .gifs I made of the show speak for themselves, be prepared for excessive cowbell and guitar tapping.

The Rapture : Live @ SPINHouse, NYC – 9.20.2011 Setlist:
In The Grace of Your Love
Get Myself Into It
House Of Jealous Lovers
How Deep Is Your Love?

Special thanks to SPIN, Lacoste Live, and Reyka Vodka.
