ATP AP Day 1: Cults Brings The Rain At Asbury Lanes (9/30/11)

After leading the Asbury Lanes patrons through the hazy dreamscape that is “Abducted,” the opening track off the outfit’s 2011 self-tiled debut, and ultimately, the opening salvo to the sonic assault that was Day 1 of I’ll Be Your Mirror, presented by All Tomorrow’s Parties, Cults side-man Collin Oblivion uttered something bizarre.

“Let’s bring the lights down and forget it’s a beautiful day outside,” a strange request indeed as those who frequent Asbury’s premiere 10-pin penthouse and music locale know it’s already one of the darker venues in the area.

And yet the wattage fell, and with the disappearance of the light on the inside, like a bass plucking Nostradamus, so departed the bright blue and beautifully lit Fall sky that had graced the boardwalk throughout the morning.

“This is amazing,” admitted front-woman Madeline Follin to the congregation and man more that listened from outside the venue due to fire code, “playing ATP and a bowling alley, both firsts.”

With a thunder storm rumbling up and down the planks outside so continued the mystical Indie Synth-Pop lightning storm within the Lanes, Cults squeezing a seductive 11-song set into the allotted 30-minute timeframe, drawing a lanes quaking roar from the appreciative audience.

    Would have liked to have seen the show but the small venue prevented many people form attending. Thanks for the videos.
