Grimes at the HOB Boston

Photographic Evidence
by Kira Doucette

We Take You There...
the House of Blues
Boston, MA - 5/20/11



"Weird Pop" - Grimes is influenced by R&B, Industrial, goth, hip hop and Western medieval organum. She is noted for simple but strong percussion, vocal virtuosity, and addictive melodies. Despite having little acquaintance with music before the age of 18, Grimes (she is now 23) has overcome this barrier and used it to her advantage, exploding onto the music scene with a sound that is that is far different from that of her peers, and extremely broad in it’s references.





What You Are Hearing Is Her Own - Grimes cannot read music and has no understanding of theory or notation, so her attempts to imitate often fail. Rather, the result is particularly unique, strangely beautiful, sometimes scary, frequently melancholic and catchy as hell. Definitely "One to Watch."
