Protomartyr / Spider Bags at Lincoln Hall

Spider Bags

The 2015 edition of Schubas // Lincoln Hall's annual winter festival Tomorrow Never Knows kicked off earlier this week with shows happening at those two venues, as well as at Metro, The Athenaeum Theater, and the Hideout. First up for us was Detroit post punks Protomartyr's headlining show at Lincoln Hall (the outfit's second time there since the release of 2014's great Under Color Of Official Right) with support from Merge-signed garage slingers Spider Bags, locals Varsity, and Detroit's Turn To Crime. Protomartyr frontman Joe Casey snarled over the ace band's intense dissonance, making for just the type of cathartic performance we've come to expect from these guys. Spider Bags were a choice precursor too, and we unfortunately missed the other two sets that night. Pictures from the 1/24 Lincoln Hall show, including a shot of Protomartyr's setlist, are in this post. TNK 2015 continues through Sunday, and we've got additional coverage from the fest on the way.

More LH pics lie after the jump...
