British trio Daughter released their much anticipated full-length debut album in the US on April 30, 2013, and played a pair of sold-out shows at the Bowery Ballroom to commemorate the occasion.
There was just one opening act, another female-vocal-driven-band named Wilsen, who sounded a lot more energetic with live drums than they do on studio recordings.
Daughter played almost all of their material, in a 1.5 hour long set that left many in the audience in tears. It was a very solid set.
Opening band Wilsen was a solid act with ethereal vocals from Tamsin Wilson.
Here's Wilsen's bassist with some sort of piped instrument.
Daughter took to the stage next. Here's Elena Tonra with her Epiphone 50th Anniversary Casino guitar in tobacco sunburst.
One of my favorite parts of the show was how Elena, Igor and Remi effortlessly flowed between instruments. Here's Elena playing the Danelectro sparkle bass.

In a Livestream Q&A, Elena mentioned that the Fender Cabronita was her new favorite guitar. The tone from the toaster pickups was perfect for Daughter's music.
Daughter played most of "If You Leave", as well as some EP favorites, such as "Candles", "Love", "Home", and "Landfill".
