Shame with Cult Objects at Cousin Danny’s

Last Thursday, the British quintet Shame put on a unforgettable sweat-soaked set in secret Philly venue Cousin Danny’s. The floor bent to nearly a breaking-point and the young group led an excitable crowd through an ear-crushing set. Philly’s own Cult Objects opened with their own rock magic that got the crowd revved up.

The evening consisted mostly of his most recent album Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt. He made sure to play some crowd pleasers like Porcelain, Natural Blues, Extreme Ways, Go! & Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad which made the show so special.
