Concertgoers had their hands full on Friday night in NYC: Delancey Street hosted one of the year’s must-see shows as Apes & Androids made their Bowery Ballroom debut with a mighty Forms/Free Blood/Reggie Watts-enabled lineup (pics later). Abbey Braden met us at Bowery later in the evening, but not before joining the throngs at the South Street Seaport for a relatively early set from the reunited post-punk legends of Wire. The show was jointly thrown by folks at River To River and the South Street Seaport festivals, the latter of which kept us very busy last summer. Getting down to Wire looked to be a good way to get it going again. Full pic spread post jump.
