The Kills, The Thrills, The Chills

The Kills

The Kills

With an opening effects pedal that sounded like the rat-a-tat of a vintage machine gun, The Kills absolutely started off with a bang. Even though they were just a two-piece band, The Kills had no problem filling up the stage. Ascot-wearing Jamie “Hotel” Hince and Alison “VV” Mosshart, a scarecrow version of what Meg White wished she looked like, had no problem sending violent soundwaves through the rooms of the Apple Store. Although Hince was the backbone of the band, Mosshart really shone through. With her haunting vocals and jet black hair in her face, the feisty singer aimlessly strutted around the stage, just so you knew it was her territory. Even through her tufts of hair, her cold blue eyes were ever-present, so that when she said “there’s only so much you can hide,” you’re damn right I believed her.
