Chelsea Wolfe w/Nudity Tonight at Exit/In

Posted By on Tue, Jan 28, 2014 at 7:30 AM

The title of Chelsea Wolfe’s 2013 album, Pain Is Beauty, sounds like it could have been lifted from an ode on a goth-teen urn, but the L.A.-based singer-songwriter plumbs the darkness with more nuance and sophistication than angst alone can produce. Wolfe’s rich voice lends her songs — which run from ethereal to bracingly visceral — a spooky grace, prowling between echoey guitar, skeletal percussion and spectral keyboard layers. The album’s opening track, “Feral Love,” soundtracked a Game of Thrones trailer, and it’s got the wintry, foreboding vibe you’d expect from a song given that job. If love is a red dress, you know how it got that color.

Tonight's show at Exit/In starts at 9 p.m. and costs $12 at the door. Locals Nudity will open.
