Saw Nouvelle Vague last week at Joe’s Pub (the perfect venue to see them — by candlelight, martini in hand). Armed with acoustic guitars, handclaps, and a Powerbook, NV put bossa nova twists on new wave hits like “I Melt With You” and “Just Can’t Get Enough.” (Remember Frente!’s “Bizarre Love Triangle”? It’s not too different than that.) A novelty act for sure, but hard to resist. During “Too Drunk To Fuck” the two sexpot singers ran through the audience and danced on the bar. Jess took some photos, but she’s on vacation so those’ll have to wait. In the meantime, stream the entire Nouvelle Vague album here (Windows-only).
UPDATE: Pics at One Louder!
