WHITE FENCE + CHERRY GLAZERR @ NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
Photos and words by Leslie Kalohi
The April edition of First Fridays at the Natural History Museum might go down in history as one of the rowdiest. Local faves White Fence and Cherry Glazerr recently turned in incendiary sets at last month’s Burgerama 4, and fans continued to show their support by packing tightly into the museum’s Mammal Hall. Extra security guards were on hand for both performances to make sure the enthusiastic (and moshing) fans didn’t crash through the gate and flood the stage.
Headliner White Fence (a.k.a. Tim Presley and live band) threw down a heavy dose of fuzzy garage rock. Presley worked his guitar with such feverish energy that it cast a hypnotic and seductive spell over everyone.
Cherry Glazerr kicked off the raucous night with their brand of charming, poppy punk to continuous, rapturous screaming. It didn’t take long for fans—who were clutching vinyl copies of Haxel Princess—to make the security gate heave and bend as everyone pushed forward to the stage. Guitarist/singer Clemetine Creevy asked for everyone to go crazy at the end of the band’s 30 minute set, and devotees delivered in abundance.
