Two loud bands got uncharacteristically quiet for a semi-acoustic show at the Habitat on Sunday.
First, New Mexico dialed it down for a set that included cuts from their Have You Met My Friend? EP and a singalong cover of The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood.” If you missed them this time around, you can make up for it on Saturday at Bar Pink, where they’ll will play this month’s edition of The Rumble.
Next, The Old In Out — appearing as their mellow alter ego Let’s Make Out — delivered a smoking set of psychedelic goodness that crescendoed into an intense, not-so-quiet finale.
Sunday’s show came just days after the Habitat held an opening for local artist Eric Wixon, whose paintings provided the bands with a surreal and fascinating backdrop.
