Concert Review: Neon Indian at the Rhythm Room
Alan Palomo's lo-fi project Neon Indian played to a well-sized Sunday night crowd at the Rhythm Room last night
Taking the stage at roughly 11:30, Palomo and company -- guitarist Ronald Geirhart, drummer Jason Faries and keyboardist/vocalist Leanne Macomber -- jumped right into things, showing the crowd just how Neon Indian would sound live. The live drummer bolstered Palomo's intimidatingly complex keyboard and other electronic equipment setup, adding a fine touch to Neon Indian's fantastically lo-fi sound. Once the band rolled into "Terminally Chill," momentum started to accumulate and the concept behind Neon Indian really came to fruition -- at least in my own head. Palomo brought along his orchestra for his tour, and the results were surprisingly complex, given that Palomo schemed the whole Psychic Chasms album on his own.
