The Kills

The Kills

The Kills have a disquieting intensity to their music. It reflects into their videos – the gritty, unsettling, often violent cinematography of Last Day of Magic and Black Balloon exemplify – and, appropriately enough, carried into their live show on Friday. Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince prowled the stage, pacing and circling each other like a cat and dog ready to fight. They leaned over a sea of grasping hands and sang into the crowd; Jamie aimed his guitar at Alison like a gun; they each snarled lyrics into the other’s face.

Within the three-song encore, they included a cover of I Put A Spell On You… it was entirely appropriate.
