With the weather starting to turn from dreary to almost Spring warm,The Walkmen started the day over at the IFC House. Big favorites early on in their career with the heralded Bows + Arrows the band has struggled to replicate that album’s success. However, here on a small stage the band sounds larger than life.

Hamilton Leithauser’s voice is nasal enough to be distinct without being irritating, and effortlessly leads the band to cohesion.
