When: May 12, 2013
Where: The Middle East – Cambridge, MA
The grandiosity of The Features’ latest album lies deeply in their sophistication – and the melodic blending of a classic rock sound with scrappy, indie garage vocals. The members possessed a demeanor that could be best described as laid back. Whether it was working the merch table or haplessly setting up their equipment, The Features handled the challenge of lighting up Cambridge onlookers on a slow Sunday evening with grace. They kicked things off with “Golden Comb,” off of 2011’s Wilderness. Of course, newer tunes like “With Every Beat,” and latest single “This Disorder” were scattered throughout the evening. While the crowd was low in numbers, that didn’t stop them from belting out the favorites they were dying to hear – and they were the sole reason why “Blow It Out” from 2005’s Exhibit A was dug up from their archives. Packed house or not, it was clear The Features simply enjoy what they were born to do: deliver amazing music.
