Peter Murphy and OURS at Crescent Ballroom, 7/13/13

The opening set by the New York band OURS, fronted by Jimmy Gnecco, set the tone for last night's Peter Murphy concert. Gnecco, who has been haunted by comparisons to Jeff Buckley, made it known that after 20 years, OURS is still fighting for the recognition they deserve. After the opening set, the age-mixed crowd of Peter Murphy and Bauhaus fans awaited the Godfather of Goth in a hot, sold-out room. Murphy eventually took the stage and performed the unexpected, almost strictly full Bauhaus set followed by a four-song encore. It might have been the best Murphy has ever sounded.
