It had been 6 long years since Hurt last visited Rhode Island 6 years ago when they opened for Alice in Chains at Lupo’s on Halloween. Now, 3 full-length albums later, Hurt returned to the Ocean State as the headliners at the Rock Junction in West Greenwich on November 14.
There’s something about the sound of this band’s music that fills a room. When took take the stage, you knew it, you heard it, and it demanded your attention. These guys are always on the mark. Even when they may be off, it’s difficult to tell because to Hurt, the quality of the performance is paramount.
The sound in this club is surprisingly good… almost as good as the food. You could hear all the instruments in the mix clearly. The tour sound guy did a decent job, but messed up a couple times, first when the bass got really loud during “Eden” and then when the violin was turned down during the solo in “Danse Russe.”
Hurt has assembled a solid 60 minute set pulling out songs from throughout their repertoire, including tunes like “Rapture,” “Fighting Tao,” and “Ten Ton Brick,” and songs from their most recent album (The
Crux), including “Sally Slips,” “When It’s Cold,” and “How We End Up Alone.” But no matter how long they stay up on stage, it sounds so go that the set never seems long enough.
