Live Photos: Ume, White Murder, and Schizophonics at the Soda Bar, April 2, 2014

Ume

Austin’s Ume put on an electric show at the Soda Bar on Wednesday.

The band, made up of wife-and-husband duo Lauren and Eric Larson and badass drummer Rachel Fuhrer, performed a setlist of material from new album Monuments, as well as old favorites from their 2011 breakout album, Phantoms.

Monuments, released March 4, has a very heavy feel, and the lightning-emblazoned album cover suggests classic Metallica. The songs live up to the implications. Live, Lauren Larson is a very entertaining lead singer, with lots of blonde headbanging, writhing, and ace guitar work.

Los Angeles’ White Murder and San Diego’s Schizophonics opened. Both bands were well-suited to support Ume, with each putting on an energetic, skilled set that kept the audience energized.
