Last night’s itiniary:
Dave Matthews Band (Storytellers) @ BAM
Music was great, but the crowd ruined it for me. (Yes, it’s Boyd’s birthday. We heard you the first six times.) No wiggle dancing in Brooklyn!
Gang Of Four @ Irving Plaza
I needed to wash the Hootie off with a blazing set from post-punk pioneers. Arrived late and couldn’t see anything from the back. But these guys sound just like Franz Ferdinand! They’re gonna be huuuuuuuuuuge. Thanks Gerald, Greg, and Glenn for helping w/ the setlist. And DJ Mandel for actually grabbing it after the show.
Anyone see them after at Tribeca Grand? I heard JC Chasez was there (also one of the Strokes was at Irving). The band plays Irving again tonight. After-party at Atomique @ Lit w/ DJ set by Andy Gil.
