For three nights this week, the ICA hosted Reverence, a celebration of shoegazing. A significant amount of my formative music-listening years was spent listening to the pioneering British artists in this genre; I even have an early-90s Ride gig to thank for losing the top range of hearing in my left ear.
Last night saw Ringo Deathstar take the stage, supporting The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. They were enjoyable enough, borrowing heavily from the Cure and My Bloody Valentine. Hell, even their lighting referenced the iconic Loveless cover.
