When I’ve seen Pretty Girls Make Graves perform, they have always put on a convincing live show, one that transfers their raw post-punk energy and excellent musicianship into a tangible experience. Singer Andrea Zollo never misses a note, while bassist Derek Fudesco demands attention thanks to his massive stature and constant swaying, and drummer Nick Dewitt always drops creative beats and unexpected changes. Still, what steals the attention of my eyes most were guitarists Jay Clark and Nathan Thelen. Just watching their hands, as they frantically scamper across the fret board like escaped prisoners not sure which way to run, is well worth the ticket price alone. Their dagger-like riffing is never muddled or off, but instead intersected in feats of post-punk angularity.
