On Saturday night A Sunny Day In Glasgow returned to New York to play a packed show at Rough Trade NYC. Support came from Wins and Ava Luna.

The opening set was Wins’ first show ever. Wins is led by Jason Bartell of Fang Island and also consists of Cassandra Jenkins of Eleanor Friedberger’s band. Hysterically the drummers cymbal fell within 20 seconds of their set, which they pointed out and took in stride while laughing about it. It was an impressive performance, especially considering it was their first. Keep a watchful eye on Wins.

Ava Luna are no strangers to the live NYC scene, seemingly playing shows non-stop. I finally got to catch them in October when they played with Mr Twin Sister at Baby’s All Right, and they were great. They were equally as awesome at Rough Trade, bringing so many different styles of rock and roll to life with ease. They really seem to enjoy performing live, and it shows. The crowd ate them up, and rightfully so.

This performance was my first time catching A Sunny Day In Glasgow live. Their new album Sea When Absent is great, an album packed with songs that are powerful emotional journeys, with multiple things happening at once. This controlled chaos of sorts was brought to life live quite well, although there was some early problems with the vocal mix. However, as they got further into the set things evened out and the band ran away with it.
