Perpetually well-dressed Swedish garage-rock revivalists the Hives took over Manhattan’s Irving Plaza on Sunday night, putting on a wild, rambunctious show that saw them spilling into the audience at various points. You might think the Hives would want to keep those tuxedos unruffled by the unwashed masses, but it looks like they’re willing to sacrifice a large cleaning bill in the pursuit of a good show. So hats off to them! All photos by Alix Piorun.
