AVEY TARE & KRIA BREKKAN WITH DEAKIN – was a-m-a-z-in-g !!
AVEY TARE, the singer, and guitar (also of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE) was of another world. as in mesmerizing.
DEAKIN, guitar & what looked like mini electronic/digital boards (also of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE) input amped up juice also of another world. meaning off the charts – musical & mystical, multi-dimensional sound layers.
KRIA BREKKAN, was beautiful inside and out. She played musical sound riffs on her accordian.
There were about, (over ?) 200 people in the audience. All were spellbound during the performance.

RINGS DEMONSTRATED A LOT OF POTENTIAL – THEY HADN’T QUITE HIT THEIR COLLECTIVE TOP-NOTCH MARK, YET. ok. let’s give them credit – they can be a really great girl band – they each bring a lot of strength to the group – its not a power meld, live, yet.
