Video Clash: Glasvegas vs. Ida Maria, electric and acoustic

Two nights ago, Ida Maria and Glasvegas, two of the more buzzed-about acts these days, packed the Paradise Rock Club. Ida Maria was probably the more impressive of the two; though she was both charismatic and energetic, her onstage antics didn't overshadow her voice, which was strong enough to carry stretches of the performance completely on its own. Glasvegas, on the other hand, sounded good, but after their first handful of songs it all started blending together in a sea of reverb and strobe lights. 

Before the show, both bands stopped by to visit with our friends at WFNX at their studio at One Financial Center to perform acoustically. After the jump, we've got video of both bands acoustic at FNX and electric at the Paradise; you can decide for yourself which you prefer.
