The Blow, Future Of What @ Mercury Lounge, NYC 5/16/2012

Last night, the Blow took the stage in Manhattan to perform some new material, a topic which we discussed with the Blow figurehead Khaela Maricich in a recent Progress Report. Though Maricich’s gleaming banter was ever present, gone was the narrative structure and Lindsay Lohan-fascination of their recent Glasslands gig, replaced by Maricich and sound designer Melissa Dyne’s focus on the new batch of songs as well as a radically reworked cover of Police’s “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.” Stereogum contributor Ryan Muir was there to document the sold-out gig attended by a flock of diehards. Future Of What opened. Hit his gallery up top.
