British shoegaze band Chapterhouse initially distanced itself from its famous contemporaries like My Bloody Valentine by touring early on with much more different acts, like acid-drone wizards Spacemen 3. Chapterhouse's winning 1991 debut, Whirlpool, earned a considerable following on the strength of lead single "Pearl," which embraced danceable rhythms and criminally catchy synth breaks. The follow-up, 1993's Blood Music, went even further, fusing the shoegazing tenets of whispery vocals and fuzzy walls of reverb with acid-house beats. But eventually, Chapterhouse just sputtered out while in the shadow of its aforementioned contemporaries—only to follow in MBV's footsteps again by eventually reforming and touring. Chapterhouse performed live for the first time in 14 years in 2009, setting the stage for a handful of tour dates that includes the Lincoln Hall. Expect plenty of feedback, and make sure to bring earplugs.
