TORRES (aka Mackenzie Scott) started off the concert evening, opening for Garbage at the 9:30 Club on October 28, 2015. (And again on October 29, I only went to the first show.)
The waves of sound and riffs and beats vibrated through the 9:30 Club, tingling and priming the sold out crowd for what was to come. They had come to see the Shirley Manson fronted Garbage, but so many came an hour early, it must have been by design. They were also here to witness TORRES.
Whether she was crooning softly, belting all out with a howl or sharing lyrics of faith and loss and love, she didn’t hold back on her emotions.
Every song by TORRES was a baring of the soul.
TORRES (aka Mackenzie Scott) joins Garbage at the 9:30 Club for two shows in October, on the 28th and 29th.
In anticipation of touring with Garbage, TORRES did a cover of their song “Special”, a subdued version that focuses more on her vocals than the accompanying melody and beats.
TORRES released her sophomore album, Sprinter, last May.
“Sprinter is the sound of an artist at the moment her vision snaps into startling focus.” — NPR Music, “NPR Music’s 25 Favorite Albums Of 2015 (So Far)”
The title song flows as a drawn-out, melancholy croon about losing faith.
Both shows are sold out, but check the resale sites, as you won’t want to miss it.
You can also buy a copy of Sprinter on iTunes, Amazon or Partisan’s website.
