DMBQ

Japan's DMBQ played a Halloween show at Danbro Studios in Brooklyn with Fiasco, The Homosexuals, Ponytail, Aids Wolf, Child Abuse and Matt & Kim on Friday (10/31). I heard the show was great from start to finish, BUT Ryan only got there in time to shoot pictures of Matt & Kim (the headliners) and DMBQ who played right before them. More from DMBQ's set below...

DMBQ is such an amazing live band. Homosexuals were great as well. Not such a fan of Matt and Kim. Love the space and the sound is good. Little offput by the bouncers and security. Seemed like overkill for an indie show.

the bouncers were too much, but the place is pretty rad, looked great, sounded good. it was a fun party

at least the bouncers were pretty chill, mostly just stood around and didn't bother people. hopefully whoever runs the space will calm down on the bouncer front as time goes by, because they sure as hell don't need that many security dudes. there was nothing for them to do.

Ponytail were excellent, those guys are gonna blow up huge in second now. Everybody else played well too. I had fun hanging out in all the different spaces, especially the patio. when do you get to see that much sky in New York City? Neat place.

"and the bouncers were assholes"

@Anon2:18 - What makes you say that? They were basically just standing around bothering nobody with nothing much to do. Don't confuse their mere presence at the gig for them being "assholes."

agreed - they weren't being assholes. the ones I interacted with were actually nice.

this one large black man bouncer literally threw someone off the stage at the end of Matt and Kim. Todd P had to step in himself and tell the bouncer dude to chill the fuck out
