The Masquerade is one of Atlanta’s iconic music venues with a rich history of bringing local and touring acts to the stage. Since The Masquerade’s move to Kenny’s Alley in Underground Atlanta I have had the pleasure of seeing a couple of my favorite local acts, Truett and Cody Matlock, on stage. Tonight that list of favorite local acts to perform at The Masquerade grew to include ZALE. ZALE made their Masquerade debut on the Purgatory stage. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that Purgatory is the place where one would “undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven,”
No matter your beliefs about heaven, hell and purgatory one has to agree that there is certainly something divine about lead singer Hannah and band members Alex (drums), Chris (guitar), Jack (bass) and Melissa (viola). I say divine because of the elation felt as you hear and watch the band and feel their energy flow off the stage. One has to imagine that this is what seeing the heavenly host perform feels like.
The night’s music include the band’s cover of Grace Potter’s “Paris”, songs from ZALE’s debut album Fortress and new songs such as “Part of the Pack” that are destined for their upcoming album. Take a listen to a couple of songs from tonight’s set on the Libro Musica Live! YouTube Channel.
