Xiu Xiu opened their set with a classic, “Fabulous Muscles,” which embodies all the darkness and beauty of the band. Stewart bobbed up and down manically, his eyes rolling back in his head as he shrieked his punchy, wobbling vocal lines into the mic. The set was an even mix of songs culled from various albums from Xiu Xiu’s extensive discography, including “Suha,” “Sad Pony Gorilla Girl,” and closer “I Luv the Valley, OH!” The band returned to the stage after their set for a one song encore, an epic cover of “Frankie Teardrop” by Suicide. At the end of the song, Stewart was leaning into the first row of the crowd holding onto someone’s shoulder as she shouted frantically, “We are all Frankie!” repeatedly. [Pop Press International
