the Bird and the Bee

"Last weekend I went to see The Bird and The Bee, and it was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. If you ever have the chance to catch them, don't miss it! I've played them a couple times in my podcasts, but Inara George and Greg Kurstin really put something special into their live performances.

The show I saw was at Zankel Hall, which is part of Carnegie Hall and just as beautiful as the main stage. The duo played several tunes from their latest album, Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future, which was OK by me, since that record is full of winners like the crazy-catchy Love Letter to Japan." [Whitney Matheson]

The Bird and the Bee played two NYC nights in a row on Friday and Saturday, first at Brooklyn rock club The Bell House, and then at the much fancier Manhattan establishment, Carnegie Hall. Chris La Putt was at both. The pictures below prove it...

Was Zankel full?
Pix look great; nice to see nice person get some success.

it was pretty full...that looks like it was just shot at around 8 when they finally opened the doors (there was no opener) and people were running in until 9 to get their seats after each song ended.

Nice to see a Fender Mustang bass with foam under the strings at the bridge. Sounds good!

Zankel filled up later, but there were still empty seats. I'm sure that's partly because of some Carnegie subscribers not showing up (B&B are very different musically compared to the other artists in the same series) and partly because many B&B fans are not used to paying more than $10 for a show and don't understand the costs of running a unionized place like Carnegie.

You sound like a psycho yourself.

Wikipedia says she's married, 2:30.

Maybe Zankel Hall wasn't sold out because tickets there were twice the $20 being charged the night before at the Bell House. That price is crazy for a relatively new and unknown band that draws a few hundred people in New York. Also, who wants to go to a seated show for a band that plays danceable pop music?
