The Mars Volta played their first NYC show in over a decade at Terminal 5 (pics, video, setlist)

Having recently released their first album in a decade, The Mars Volta are on their reunion tour now, which stopped in NYC on Thursday night (9/29) for the first of two shows at Terminal 5. They've been keeping their setlist almost exactly the same so far on this run, playing just a couple of songs, "Blacklight Shine" and "Graveyard Love," from the new album, with the rest focused on their classic debut LP De-Loused in the Comatorium, along with a few songs from Frances the Mute and one each from Amputechture and Noctourniquet. They sounded great and the sold out crowd at T5 was digging every minute.

Teri Gender Bender, aka Le Butcherettes founder Teresa Suárez Cosío, opened the night, and you can check out pictures from both sets below, along with The Mars Volta's setlist and some attendee video clips from their set.

The Mars Volta play a second show at Terminal 5 tonight (9/30), and from there their tour continues through late October. See all dates below, and shop for their albums on vinyl in the BV store.
