The new wave legend put on a primal show in Bellingham with support from NYC noise titans A Place To Bury Strangers
New Wave legend Gary Numan threw down a dazzling, primal show at Wild Buffalo House of Music in Bellingham, WA with support from Brooklyn noise rock titans A Place To Bury Strangers. Numan, currently in the midst of a massive North American tour that will also include a stop at Cruel World festival in Los Angeles next week, performed a set that spanned his entire career – including early hits “Cars” and “Metal” as well as material off his latest album Intruder.
Fans in the Pacific Northwest were also treated to a spectacularly loud opening set from A Place to Bury Strangers, the NYC shoegaze and post-punk band led by Oliver Ackermann. The group also performed a career-spanning set, including a few tracks off their iconic 2009 album Exploding Head. You can scroll through for some of the highlights from those amazing sets below.
