These photos from M.I.A.'s show at S.O.B.'s in NYC on Tuesday, June 7th, 2005.


A list of stuff about this show:
1. Diplo was not the DJ. He was also playing Rothko the same night, though I would be surprised if he cancelled one to do the other. MIA said something like, "My DJ Diplo is missing."
2. The DJ was DJ Marlboro?
3. The backup/second singer is key. She's really good.
4. The back to back combination of Bucky Done Gone and Galang was one of my best concert experiences of the year.
5. David Byrne was there.

I'm pretty sure Marlboro was the opening act and the 2nd DJ that joined her halfway through (for Bucky Done Gun and the rest). I never caught the name of the stoned-looking white guy who was her main DJ.

"Hombre" was quite strong, too.

Show (including encore) was less than 50 minutes.

andrew was the white DJ who did her set, DJ Marlboro from Rio came onstage and covered while MIA and her singer (who was great) went off to get a drink at the side bar -- at least that's what MIA said they were doing. Looks like we were near each other during the show from your pics.

Went to last night's (weds) show. No Diplo, again. I was a bit dissapointed at the length of the show--only 40 mins! And some of the crowd definitely came to pose rather than party which was a bit lame.

Yeah, I heard MIA and Diplo broke up... so no more Diplo mixes. Good, 'cuz he kinda bugs me.

no catchdubs was not her main dj it was diplo and then dj contra filled in at the avalon show in boston

DJ Contra (stoned looking dude) was M.I.A.s main show DJ and DJ Marlboro was the guy who played baile funk before and after. DJ Rekha was the warmup DJ waaaay in the beginning.

i broke them up and want to kill myself about it.

MIA and diplo were never dating; it's all a big front. Wes can only become sexually around by pictures of Manatees frolicking. It's really sad.

The DJ in the pictures in not DJ Marlboro but M.I.A.mi's own DJ Contra, and is now maya's DJ for the rest of the tour.
