White Lies played Webster Hall NYC 9/25 (Review/Pics/Videos)

White Lies played Webster Hall on Friday night and were incredible. The best part about seeing a band like White Lies now is that since they’re so “new”, they’ll play pretty much every song they have. This is especially pleasing if you’re a White Lies fan as their debut album To Lose My Life… is nearly flawless, not one bad track. For about 45 minutes, there was no place better to be as frontman Harry McVeigh and the boys rocked Webster Hall with a twelve song set that included fan favorites “Death” and “Unfinished Business” as well as the well known “To Lose My Life”, “Taxidermy” (only previously available on the vinyl edition of To Lose My Life…) and a cover of the Portishead track “The Rip.” There were whispers in the crowd of the band’s sound being too similar of 80’s new wave pop rock but White Lies’s music is much more evolved and honest than most music from that period. The Violens opened the show but our reviewer only caught seconds of their performance. Check out the setlist, some pics and photos from the show below:

1. Farewell to the Fairground
2. Taxidermy
3. To Lose My Life
4. From The Stars
5. Fifty On Our Foreheads
6. A Place To Hide
7. E.S.T.
8. Nothing To Give
9. Unfinished Business
