Nicole Atkins & Wolf! House of Independents, Asbury Park, NJ, 10/28/16

It’s Halloween weekend in Asbury Park, NJ, and half the crowd is in costumes. Nicole Atkins took the stage dressed up as “Carrie” (from the Stephen King novel), wearing a white prom dress covered in blood; after welcoming the audience and introducing her backing band Wolf!, she opened the evening with “A Little Crazy” – a brand new song that she co-wrote in Nashville with the legendary Chris Isaak.

The rest of Nicole’s set was a well-put-together mix of songs spanning her full catalog, from “Brooklyn’s On Fire!” from her Bleeding Diamonds EP (2005) to “Who Killed The Moonlight?“ from Slow Phaser (2013). She interacted with the crowd the entire evening, commenting on the awesome costumes people were wearing as well as how nice it felt to be back home in NJ.

The highlight of her set was a sultry cover of The Doors song “The Crystal Ship”; between Nicole’s vocals, Scott Metzger killer guitar playing, and the full band backing them, it was something really special. Not many musicians or bands would have been able to pull that cover off as well as they did, I really hope it makes it to Nicole’s new album!
