Not my normal speed, but we caught 4 nights of live music shows last week. Which adds up to awesome.
Yo La Tengo 30th Anniversary show at Town Hall. Antietam opened. Here they are joined by many of the people they've worked and played with over the years. Superfab.
Second night of Yo La Tengo's anniversary residency. Here are the Feelies in their opening set. They all joined YLT as well at various times throughout the evening. Megafab.
Oh, and these nights gave Cory a good chance to expand her collection of Yo La Tengo and Feelies setlists. They're filling up the better part of the hearth at this point...
Lucius, doing their New York homecoming at Terminal 5. Not my favorite venue, but one of my current favorite acts. They came out into the crowd for the encore, as is their wont.
Beep opened the show at Music Hall of Williamsburg - they were great, but I didn't get any photos
Cibo Matto - Amazing.
Tune-Yards - Incredible.
So - now we're kind of in recovery mode. Kind of. I had a shoot on Sunday (tucked in between Lucius and Tune-Yards, if you're keeping score) and of course we've both been working regular hours this whole while. Plans every night this week (but mainly mellower plans - that's what makes it recovery mode, I guess) and both days this weekend too.
Like the man said, you'll sleep when you're dead.
