Bear in Heaven at Glasslands
Last night The Secret Machines and Bear in Heaven played a packed Glasslands. Along with openers PAPA, Noveller, and Mon Khmer, Glasslands was consistently full, with each band a new cycle of audience members would migrate and sift to the front of the stage. It does not bode well when you approach Glasslands praying there is just an exorbitant number of smokers standing outside.
Playing in near darkness, Bear in Heaven received cheers after starting only the samples of their most popular psychedelic and electronic songs including, “Lovesick Teenagers.” Next month, Bear in Heaven will be on tour with noise rock’s Cymbals Eat Guitars.

After clearing the stage if only to make room for the drum kit, The Secret Machines went all My Bloody Valentine on my ears as I was stationed in front of the kick drum. With the first beat came three bright back lights for each member to further accentuate the sensory overload of the show. The Secret Machines rocked hard and stunned the their enthralled audience.
