Dark Mysterious Rock: In The Valley Below at House of Blues (April 20, 2015)

In the Valley Below open their set with the fantastic song Stand Up.  Their dark and eerie style is immediately noticed as unique. They dress in solid black and white and use a Y-shaped microphone stand to hold the mics for the two lead singers. Just as the White Stripes did before, they are ambiguous about their relationship. On stage, Angela Gail seems to long for Jeffrey Jacob while he seems disinterested.  This adds to the experience as they sing about love and heartbreak. The crowd perks up when they play Peaches , their excellent hit single. As Angela moves around Jeffrey, it’s clear there is a chemistry between them while they are performing on stage.  Whether this extends offstage is unknown, which adds to the interesting mysterious feel of this live act.
