The music of Perfume Genius is dark, brooding and personal. Piano-driven songs about family, love and melancholy that draw you in. Mike Hadreas' voice is fragile but strong and the band that supports him known exactly how to compliment his songs without overwhelming the compositions. This is not Perfume Genius' first trip through Austin but it is their first time playing a venue that so perfectly suits their lovely chamber pop. The latest release from Perfume Genius, Put Your Back N 2 It has a name that implies a much more dance-oriented vibe than what you can expect from the live show. The fact that the show is taking place at Central Presbyterian Church should tell you everything you need to know. Tickets for tomorrow night's show are only $15 and the show is not sold-out yet. The venue is pretty large and spectacular so if you're thinking you have even the smallest interest in this event I highly suggest you fork over the cash.
