Last Night: Pale At Warehouse Live

Pale, Come See My Dead Person, The Shiny Darks Warehouse Live Studio April 28, 2011

Pale is a transparent band. With a new record under its belt on a new label, a national distribution deal, and a well-known Los Angeles-based publicist, the band makes no bones about shooting for the big time.

Thursday night's CD release show was no different, with the band kicking things off with a VIP/media reception in Warehouse Live's Green Room. Despite the hype associated with any band's new album -- countless photo ops, management hassles -- it ultimately comes down to the music, and last night was no different.

After watching local bands slog it out in front of practically no one for so many years, Aftermath loves the fact that many Houston bands have found devoted audiences. Last night's crowd was about half the capacity of Warehouse Live's Studio, which is more than we've seen at some national shows.
