The Walkmen: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2013

It's been over a decade since The Walkmen's debut full-length, and after last year's unusually joyous album Heaven, it's fair to say the band is a different animal these days. There's still no one on Earth who can go from a croon to a wail quite like Hamilton Leithauser, but the dapper indie rock quintet has transformed in many other ways. The great thing, of course, is that The Walkmen now have six albums of original material to perform, so their sets can run an emotional assault course. From confused despair to unabashed happiness, from furious momentum to woozy lethargy, The Walkmen can do it all. It's impossible to know quite what we'll hear during this two-night stand at The Fillmore, but we're sure it'll be entertaining.
