Mazzy Star takes Petaluma with MBV drummer Colm Ó Cíosóig
I feel so lucky I got to see this show, Mazzy Star was epic! My inner teenager came out, bleeding nostalgia all over the historic floor of Petaluma’s living landmark, McNear’s Mystic Theater. The performance was dark, moody, and absolutely perfect. The band also hired the talents of an amazing visual artist. The projection throughout the show complimented the roots rocking tunes precisely.
Considering a 16 year gap since the last show, they didn’t miss a beat. (Really hard to, when Colum from My Bloody Valentine is your drummer!) Mazzy took control of the crowd from the first whisper to the last note of the encore. I was too wrapped up in all of the incredible tunes to get appropriate rock n roll pics, so you’ll have to wait until Coachella….
