Warpaint @ The Troubadour - 12/10/10

When I saw Warpaint open for Yeasayer at The Natual History Museum in February 2010, I didn't really know who they were. All I knew is that the Rules of Attraction actress Shannyn Sossaman used to be their drummer & that her sister Jenny Lee Lindberg was the bassist. I was impressed by Warpaint's set that night but I still didn't realize what I had been overlooking.

On the Saturday of Labor Day weekend this past September, I could hear Warpaint's set very clearly as I was walking into FYF Fest in Downtown LA but, because I couldn't actually see the show, I didn't give this extremely talented all chick rock band the full & proper attention they deserved.

Luckily, I had a 3rd chance to see Warpaint last night at The Troubadour in LA. They added a 2nd Troubadour show because the 1st one sold out right away. Last night's show sold out as well & I finally understood why. I haven't seen an all girl band rock that hard in, well, just about ever. Emily Kokal's voice is hauntingly beautiful & I can't stop thinking about their performance of the song Baby off their latest album The Fool. It was breathtaking.
