"The show marked a celebratory moment for hometown heroes Warpant, whose set capped an extensive slate of touring. But as bassist-singer Jenny Lee Lindberg quipped in the band’s interview with West Coast Sound last week:
"It’s happening a lot sooner than we expected, but we’re also probably playing at 5:30."
She wasn’t too far off the mark — the band played a five-song set that began at 6:20 — but the ladies seemed to be enjoying themselves plenty, their laughter and lighthearted demeanor a nice complement to the moody psychedelia of their music.
In theory, those kind of gauzy, mood tunes are an apt choice for the Bowl’s acoustics, but the venue ultimately sounded a bit too big for the band’s britches. The mixing was muddled and the sparse crowd that attended the earlier part of the evening added to the feeling of it being background music.
That said, if you happened to be seated closer to the stage, the intensity of their performance as downright magnetic — they even dared to defy the Bowl Gods and their infamously strict set times by launching into an unplanned fifth song, and kept playing even as the stage rotated away”.
