Perfume Genius performing at the Vera Project last night
The Vera Project can be sort of cavernous. Case in point, last night Kirkland singer songwriter Perfume Genius played to a number that might have packed a coffee shop. But at Vera, the audience seemed spaced for maximum intimacy, like it was just you and the performer at an under attended house show.
That all worked out, giving Perfume Genius' songs—slow and tremble-y piano confessionals (made for couples to shuffle closer together along the way)—a quiet gravity.
