Mon and Tues were transplendent, this one was kind of blah. Badly paced, too many slow ones and obscurities pushed up front, not enough energy for a Friday night crowd. I get hot for "Billy Budd" and "Jack the Ripper" but I can't say they did much for the people near me. Better luck Sat and Sun!

Saturday was the best of the NYC stand so far, twice as good as Friday. He wore a tux and busted out "National Front Disco," a total surprise to "Last of the Famous International Playboys"! Between Mozz and Manny it's been quite a wknd for sweet & tender hooligans.

I agree, Saturday was definitely the best night so far. LOVED the inclusion of 'International Playboys,' as well as the tux. :)

Some good videos from the show below. Enjoy!

Morrisey now sings with a deeper, raspier octave and sounds super-cool instead of sounding like a eunuch. Right-o!

Dide he play Irish Blood English Heart? You should hear him belt that out in his new, deeper, raspier octave.

"This isnt pictures of tonight (saturday)..."

No shit. As stated in BV's headline, these photos are from night 3, i.e., Friday, October 26.

"Did he play Irish Blood English Heart? You should hear him belt that out in his new, deeper, raspier octave"

He did Sunday night and he sounded super-cool.

Which LP is on the drum riser in photo 3? Is that an old Dolls LP?

Posted by Dfactor | October 29, 2007 10:16 AM

Yeah it looks like the dolls self titled LP, who is the guy pictured behind the stage?

You sure it's Richard Burton? Any idea where that image is taken from?

I really wish I caught this show actually.
But either way, Friday night was on fire.
My friends dragged me to see We Tigers, who I had heard mixed reviews about but they were definitely bringing a new sound. It was a little sloppy and loud but it was the most fun I've had at a show in a while. Still, wish I caught Morrissey.
