I found it a challenge to hold my camera still with their catchy music all up in my ear canal and whatnot. I had to resist the urge to dance; I tapped my foot as a compromise. I enjoyed their shit is what I'm trying to convey. They looked like they were enjoying it too. When I go see a performance I can't have a good time unless I can tell the performers are having fun. The crowd needs to feed off their energy so that they could feed off the crowd and together create a FEEDBACK LOOP OF AWESOME. That was either very brilliant or very dumb, what I just said.
This all went down at Crash Mansion—a very nice venue. I encourage other bands to scout the location for their own gigs. The acoustics are great and there's a lot of room to hang out and do whatever. Getting there is easy; there are multiple points of entry if you ride the subway. The staff was personable and just the right level of flirty.
Even better, on my way over I passed by New Museum. I keep forgetting about that place somehow. I might go there this coming Saturday.
