Live Concert Photography: herMajesty and Vylets at The Bowery Electric 11/8/17

Now, if you’ve been frequenting this site over the course of its almost eight year history, you’ve likely come across a handful posts featuring the New York-based art rock/glam rock JOVM mainstays herMajesty. And although the band has gone through a number of lineup changes throughout the years, the band currently comprised of founding member and primary songwriter JP (vocals, samples, guitar), David (bass, lead guitar), Joan (bass) and Konrad (drums) has developed a reputation for crafting elegantly, lush and moody material that’s heavily indebted to Roxy Music, David Bowie, U2 and psych rock. Interestingly, since the release of My Body Your Mind EP and a series of standalone singles, which included gorgeous cover of Patti Smith’s “Dancing Barefoot,” “One by One” and others, the quartet has developed a growing regional profile with the band opening for the likes of The B52s, Tom Tom Club, Say Hi to Your Mom and The Boxer Rebellion — and have made frequent tour stops in Rochester, Providence, Philadelphia and Boston, as well as regular shows at Rockwood Music Hall and The Bowery Electric in the Lower East Side.

I caught the JOVM mainstays play on a bill with Like Herding Cats, The Heroic Enthusiasts and opening act Vylits at The Bowery Electric earlier this month. Check out the photos from that show below.

Vylits is a fairly mysterious New York-based indie rock quartet, whose sound draws from  70s-era David Bowie, glam rock and post punk.
