In a bleak MySpace post, Lily said “It’s the songs. I’m bored.” We’re not surprised. Tix are still on sale for her set as “the first artist to play the newly-christened Fillmore Irving Plaza“; maybe New Yorkers are burned out on the songs they’ve already seen a couple times now. Not that this stopped ‘em from turning out for, say, Art Brut — but Eddie Argos is his own animal.
So to spice up the set, Lily’s been cramming more covers into her show. Let’s Sexy Fighting was at Lily’s gig in Portland Wednesday night, where she covered Kaiser Chiefs, The Kooks, and Keane. Contemporary UK covers? Eh. But how about “Heart Of Glass”? You make the call.
