Review: Halloween Party with Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, No Kids & Pomegranates – 10/31

Last night saw an incredible Halloween lineup at the Pour Haus with Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, No Kids and Pomegranates. No Kids might have been the surprise for most people as they’ve yet to gain the sort of exposure that a band like Casiotone for the Painfully Alone has, or the regional acclaim that Pomegranates have. The Vancouver-based trio played incredibly fun synth-pop to an attentive crowd and were generally all-around awesome people. Owen (CFTPA) played a great lo-fi set of virtually everything you wanted to hear…starting with Etiquette’s “Cold White Christmas” making his way to my personal favorite “Young Shields” and was joined by Nick Krgovich for a few songs they’ve worked on together. Most of those in attendance for the night had come to see Owen as it was his first tour through Louisville and he put on a fantastic show. Concluding the night, Cincinnati’s young Pomegrantes put on the most energetic of the performances and kept up a great connection to the audience, including Isaac explaining away his open-mesh Florida football jersey that looked more costume than my Michael Phelps getup. After seeing these guys at Forecastle, I was excited to see them in a bar setting where, as I suspected, they were much more at home. In the confines of the Pour Haus, they made me wonder why they’ve kept their pop deliciousness and heart-healthy rock from this city for so long, and I can only hope we can get them back down here again soon…
