Show Review : The Birthday Massacre

Highline Ballroom
New York, NY
April 27, 2009

I LOVE The Birthday Massacre. I've only seen them three times now and each time, I'm just in love.

That sweet, music box melody that plays throughout their songs puts the biggest smile on my face and it's safe to say their show got me out of the horrid mood I've been in since early Saturday afternoon.

I also caught I Am Ghost's set. They're good and I definately will listen to them when I think of it. They were like a toned down, polished & intricate Aiden. Plus the bassist was hot from where I was standing.

Check them out.

TBM started with my favorite, "Red Stars" and ended with "Happy Birthday."

Honestly, they filled the insanely quick, but a good hour and 15-ish minutes set with songs from all across the board.

Chibi got her hair cut since last I saw them and she looks awesome! Such a cute cut.

They're also such a great live band because the interaction between all of the members on stage is as fun to watch as it is moving along with their music. Chibi makes the cutest/funniest faces to her band mates and the audience. She's twisted like the chick from the craft (and The Waterboy...what's her name? she's a rad actress too), but she's child-like and sweet.

Then, they're just another band who's music is better live than in the recording - yea, there's not a lot out there.

Just love them! Wish I had gone on Saturday too, but that's what makes it that much sweeter - don't overdose!
