ESG

"(Le) Poisson Rouge is wall to wall dancing before ESG takes the stage. The music geeks are hugging the walls or waiting in the next room drinking Guinness and listening to Fugazi. At about 12:30, Renee Scroggins comes on stage followed by her sisters Valerie and Marie, her daughter Nicole and her niece Chistelle. The music geeks and hipsters clear out of the bar next door and invade the dance floor. We look on stage and immediately feel better about ourselves. ESG is dressed a lot like us: baseball hats, sweatshirts and jeans. The first song is "You're No Good," the first song off ESG's masterpiece A South Bronx Story. The first thing I notice is they create a huge sound by playing very simple music. They are more punk than most punk bands." [NY Press]
It was a long night at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Saturday (1/24). The early show at the venue was the double bill of Au and Stars Like Fleas. Lori was there for all three and said ESG was killer. More pictures from the whole evening below...

"the first song off ESG's masterpiece A South Bronx Story."

That album is a compilation. I would hardly think compilations can be considered masterpieces. It's probably the only album the reviewer owns.

I wonder if the drummer is still stealing tax payer's money.

So the management of (Le) Poisson Rouge has started capitalizing the venue's name? Now we need to get them to lose the unnecessary parentheses.

If that's all you can say about ESG, you've got problems.
