Lots of faces filled Sullivan Hall on Friday night to catch Peter Kirk. Kirk, a songwriter, producer, and recording artist based out of NYC. For this show, Kirk was joined by Cold Atlantic: a Brooklyn band playing live for the first time. Not a bad way to debut.
Rivers of light hit the stage through smoke as the band came on. Kirk started with his latest single, “Panama Wedding”. The sound brought me back to 80’s pop rock, with hints of newer bands like Phoenix. Every new song brought the audience to the edge and kept them there.
Most of the songs were Kirk originals, but we did get a warm introduction from Cold Atlantic. Jared McCarthy held rhythm and back-up vocals all night, but ended the show by jumping to lead vocals on “Perfect Way.” It was a great compliment to Kirk’s music, with more of an indie sound.
