Almost two years ago I photographed Wet for the first time at Mezzanine. It was November 2014 and the NYC trio (now a live quartet with drummer) were touring on their buzzed about self titled EP, opening for Sohn. Like our writer David, who reviewed the show at the time, I was impressed by the raw soul and truth in their set, but it was obvious that they were a work in progress and still coming into their own. If you were at Mezzanine this Friday you were lucky enough to see the blossoming of talent that came with their debut album Don’t You and touring.
Their live show has definitely evolved, compare the photos at the bottom of the post to this picture of Wet at Mezzanine 2014:
Friday was actually the third time I’ve seen a Wet show this year, as they have been on a whirlwind touring schedule promoting their first LP. This time around they also had a couple new songs, “The Middle” and “Turn Away” to share with the crowd. As we noted in our preview of the show the new songs hit that Wet’s best music is still ahead of them. Check out “The Middle:”
Wet’s tour continues through November 19th, when they play a hometown show at Webster Hall in NYC.
