Autre Ne Veut at 285 Kent

After three years of thriving as a DIY music venue, 285 Kent will close on January 19. On Saturday, Autre Ne Veut played the first of the venue's last shows.

With a passionate and heartier roar, Autre Ne Veut turns up his wailing, ambient, and sometimes glittering album, Anxiety to a magnetizing and more raw live act.

On Anxiety, Autre Ne Veut has created massively calculated sounds that vibrate, electrify and resonate beneath his wild vocals that range from falsettos to elongated belts.

Autre Ne Veut elaborated on his sophomore album's walls with stretched and wholly live versions for songs like "Promises" and "Ego Sex Free."

Backup singers helped tame Autre Ne Veut's unruly presence with female vocals that rang with more pop than on the record. At times, the girls sounded cute and fun, and at other times they were weak, stalling engines next to Autre Ne Veut's four wheel drive.

285 Kent will present several more shows in Williamsburg before January 19. Return to and subscribe to Kate Spalla for coverage on the 285 Kent closing.
