After some trouble getting in the door, I was able to catch half of Lomelda, the opening band for Frankie Cosmos, at Barracuda on Saturday night. Lomelda is a three-piece group, with soft female vocals, living in the same musical vein as Frankie Cosmos; whose tender music and personal songs demand the listeners attention. Lomelda played with grace over a thick crowd until the end of their set.

Lomelda played a tight set. Dynamic and honest, Hannah Read’s vocals called out to me, alone and introverted. If given the chance I’d love to see Lomelda come back and perform at the Moody Theater in Austin.

Around 11:30, Frankie Cosmos took the stage and everyone cheered. The four-piece band, equipped with drums, bass, guitar, keys, and three vocals, began to play–commanding our attention with their unique sound.

They started with “Jesse,” a track from their newest album, Vessel, and the crowd was captivated. Greta Kline, aka Frankie Cosmos, sounded just like the record, soft and whimsical. The band, who looked younger than I expected, played like a fine-tuned machine.

The climax of the night came when Kline invited Hannah Read, singer and guitarist for Lomelda, up on stage to sing the final verse of a Frankie Cosmos song. Overall, a solid performance by both bands and I’m looking forward to seeing them again.
