One of my favorite hard rock acts, The Pretty Reckless, played a great show this past Friday the 13th at Irving Plaza, and I had the pleasure of attending with two of my best friends, Alan and Kristin.
There were a few opening acts, though, we missed at least one of them. One opening act we did see that we liked a lot was The Indecent. This punk/ grunge female fronted band had some cool tunes. Though I do think they need a little more stage presence. Regardless, I liked them a lot. That would be only opening act we saw that we liked.
The Pretty Reckless came on stage and killed it!!! They played practically every song from their debut album, Light Me Up and stuff off their new EP Hit Me Like a Man. In fact, I think the only song they didn't play off their full length album was the sad but beautiful track You. They also did a killer cover of System of a Down's classic track Aerials.
The band rocked hard and Taylor Momsen sounded amazing! She has such a beautiful voice. And, she looked hot as hell as well. Her gyrations on stage were very sexy. She is truly one of rock/ metal's hottest chicks. The set and night ended with a performance of the album's best ballad Nothing Left to Lose to which they changed the closing part and made it more metal. In all a great concert!!!
