The Aces played TWO sold-out shows at Bowery Ballroom this week, and we were able to catch the first on Wednesday night. While the superfans (including one English teacher who’d brought flowers along for the band) had clearly turned out for the main event, opener Joan (hailing from Arkansas) had no trouble capturing hearts with a healthy dose of funky synth pop.
When it finally was time for the Provo, Utah quartet to take the stage, the crowd was good and ready to make them feel right at home. In return, the band brought next-level moves ‘n the tunes, much to the delight of a very happy audience.
Now, we can’t say for sure if night two went exactly the same way, but judging by the performance and reactions we saw, we’d be willing to bet it was a pretty swell time. Either way, scope our contributing photographer Michael Gebhardt’s snaps below to relive and/or live vicariously through all the action:
