Cherry Glazerr performed a sold-out show at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles, CA to finish out their North American tour before heading off to Europe.
Fronted by Clementine Creevy, Cherry Glazerr performed a solid amount of tracks off new album Apocalipstick. Creevy delivered each song in an energetic rampage, never stopping once. Her facial expressions and dancing accented each song well.
Cherry Glazerr's performance was exceptional and loud, taking a completely different approach to a live set up compared to albums. Punk was alive and well that night. Though many of Cherry Glazerr's recorded tracks do have that punk edge, the band performing collectively gave the audience a taste as to how extreme they can get. Their energy paralleled the crowd's, as people were moshing and stage diving all night.
While this might seem aggressive, don't let this fool you. The night was all-inclusive with undertones of political commentary. Stage decorations hinted towards the reproductive rights that all women should be allowed access to.
To highlight the night, Cherry Glazerr played crowd favorites, "Nuclear Bomb," "Teenage Girl," "Told You I'd Be With The Guys" and "Had Ten Dollar." The band’s drummer absolutely shredded, not holding back on tom fills and a heavy ride.
Cherry Glazerr lived up to expectations and was an all around great act. The band succeeded in intertwining sociopolitical elements in with their music, which made for a thought provoking and insightful evening. It's a difficult task to mix these elements while also remaining an instrumentally sound, however, Cherry Glazerr did just that.
