Suicide @ Europa

Suicide played a show at Europa in Brooklyn last night (May 15, 2008). It was their first NYC show since their much larger (free) affair at the Seaport last summer with TheDeathSet (who coincedentally played Europa one night earlier - May 14 - with Bonde Do Role) (and who played with Bonde Do Role again in NYC last night too.)

How were Suicide? Or Aa (who opened for them this time)? More pics from the show below...

child abuse were the best and most visceral part of this show. hands down. the blue man group w/out corporate funding band aka Aa were kinda embarassing.

this show was not as good South Street seaport last year mainly because of not as good song selection (no Ghost Rider, no Frankie Teardrop) . but it was still good.

The instrumentation was obviously not the same, but they certainly played (or rather Vegas mumbles a few of the songs' lyrics) "Ghost Rider" and "Dream Baby Dream", but sadly I didn't notice "Frackie Teardrop"... Did Vegas shout "Frankie!" at any point? That could have all that's been for the song.... The music was monotonous, chaotic, funky groovey, rocking, psychedelic, hypnotic and simply fucking awesome.

These guys are the epitomy of cool. I can only wish I'm half that at their age. Martin Rev is a glorious fist pounding synth bad ass and although Alan Vegas had a bit of the old man shuffle going, he was still very cool, funny and definitely endearing. I noticed a lot of young women (their daugthers' age and younger) in the front whom I thought were "feeling their rock god sex appeal"....

I went to the Seaport show too, but it was a pleasure to hear them indoor.

I thought they were amazing. Alan Vega made me get all sweaty with excitement. I was one of the young wimmen in the front that couldn't control themselves... Young men take note: Grandpa shuffle is HOT!

they also did "Cheree," and that was it for the first "Frankie," not even the word "Frankie," but "Ghost Rider" and "Dream" were great. (Vega changed words to "the whole wide world is killing its youth.") "Stayin' Alive" a bit dubious but hey. The show began with a very moving dedication to Rev's late wife. Great show.

Martin Rev was outstanding. I thought the show was better than the Knitting Factory- Jan, '05.

they were sick at the seaport... but really, it's hard to get excited when you read about them causing riots in their hey days. noo mooreee reunionnss may the greats rest in peace so i can treasure them forever (that means you, zombies)
