For The Archive: The Lashes

Show Date: November 28, 2009

Saturday night, The Lashes rocked the Crocodile. For a reunion show, their antic filled set felt less like a nostalgia trip and more like a gosh darn celebration of what’s good and fun in the world.

Bumbershoot 2007: The Lashes

Show Date: September 1, 2007

I am loath to begin my very first live show review with such a terrible confession, but here it goes: before today, I had never heard the Lashes. I had of course heard their name dropped by plenty of local scenesters, and have been told more than once that their sound is right up my […]
