Voyeur Plays Witness to The Rapture

Published On October 22, 2011 | Concerts

On Friday night at club Voyeur in Philadelphia, fans packed into the infamous Making Time party to witness The Rapture.

To say the venue was crowded would be akin to saying that the sun is hot. The place was jammed. The party, which kicked off at 9pm and went until 4am, already had a substantial line by 10pm. By 11pm, it was wrapping around the corner.

Rapture fans were all to eager to take in a live show after the band released the album “In The Grace of Your Love” on DFA Records last month. The first single “How Deep is Your Love” is beyond catchy and might even be considered highly addictive in some circles.

Although they took the stage a little later than expected, opening act Metronomy, wasted no time whipping the crowd into a frenzy. It’s refreshing to catch an act that sports three vocalists with some decent range. If the signs that this was going to be a great night weren’t clear before Metronomy, they certainly were ominous afterwards. The Rapture was coming. Hold on to your hats.

The headliners took the stage sometime after midnight and rocked the house. The Rapture had come, but the end wasn’t near…the night was just getting started. There was no hell-fire, but there was plenty of heat. No tidal waves tore through the venue, however, there was no shortage of crowd surfing.

The rest of the night was nothing short of amazing. From the crowded dance-floor, to the basement where Philadelphia born band Free Energy rocked the crowd starting at 245am, there was great music, happy people, and of course, free hotdogs.

If you didn’t make time for this event, we hope the pictures will help you come to terms with your loss.
