Ever since they plotted themselves into rock conscious of the 90s with At The Drive-In, Omar Rodriguez Lopez and Cedric Bixler Zavala have breathed life into frantically entertaining live shows, no matter what banner they performed under. On their first tour as their current incarnation, Antemasque, the long time friends and musical partners showed no signs of pulling away from that image as they continue to turn any size stage into a cathedral of raucous energy.

While the self-titled debut of Antemasque crams a lively grouping of songs into and out of your speakers, the live versions cut like a knife, tearing open new levels of enjoyment with every beat. There are no fancy tricks here; this is live rock music as it should be; pure enjoyment on all levels for the musicians and the fans. Running through the majority of their first album, with a few new tracks thrown in along the tour, there isn’t a second of time wasted when the boys hit the stage.

Touring with Le Butcherettes as opening support, we caught up with the band at their second NYC show on the second leg of touring at the famed Bowery Ballroom on this past Sunday night, November 9th. Enjoy the photographs we captured and do not miss this double bill if they roll into your town anytime soon, in the future, or if you built a time machine, yesterday.

Thanks as always to Omar and the guys for inviting IPaintMyMind to enjoy the show and take these shots.
