Lily Allen

"The venue was Roseland in the Times Square area of NYC. I was impressed that the place was sold out. Nev "has a guy" who works in security. We bypassed the line (standing in the rain poor guys), went to the front door, was ushered to a set of stair and we sat in the balcony watching the show from above. We were there early enough that we were able to secure high chairs and a place next to the ledge. Our seats were phenomenal and we were able to watch the entire show comfy and unobstructed. I bumped into someone I know who works the venue and she gave Nev and I two free drink coupons (I heart Malibu).

Then Lily Allen came on. What a treat she was from beginning to end. She mentioned between songs that she was not feeling well. You could not tell from her performance. She was high energy. She sang the crowd favorites: The Fear, Smile, It's Not Me It's You, and my favorite Fuck You. The thing that amazes me is that she closed her show with her rendition of of Britney Spears' Womanizer. The rendition started out with a clip of the new song "Day and Night"." [Seletyn's Weblog]

Lily Allen's previous NYC show was at the much smaller Bowery Ballroom. More pictures from last (4/20) night's show, below...

She played everything off the new album. It was a pretty good show. I wasn't close enough to see her nipples! I can't believe Ralphy didn''t win in the cheesecake contest!

What happened to Lily's pretty hair :(

Yeah cmon now. Seeing Lily Allen's bare nipples and tits these days is not very difficult(not to mention having sex with her either from what i hear). She has a bunch of topless pics all over the net. Now seeing the Vag or a full on sex tape would be great and something new.

I'm gonna go ahead and assume that any band calling themselves "Natalie Portman's Shaved Head" is straight up terrible. Shocker.

Today's new bands are totally way too self-conscious of their image, name, online style, their songs that reflect those attributes and more. The mystery has left popular rock and roll...

Lily was so amazing. She rocked from start to finish. I loved it. Natalie Portman's Shaved Head was pretty awesome too. Really, really catchy songs and very danceable. Everyone should check them out. Don't judge a band by it's name!!!

Glad she got dressed up for the occasion...

She's stealing Alice Glass' look, judging by those pictures

Leave poor Lily alone! She can't help it for Pitchfork got all up in her and promoted her to superstar status.

P.S. NPSH: PWNS UR A$$!!!

Dumbest band name ever? I really can't think of anything worse.

Posted by Rocky Napoli | April 21, 2009 5:06 PM

NPSH didn't get to open for Lily if she didn't think they are awesome. Get over yourself! Did you see the crowd enjoying them or booing? They're good! Who cares what their name is? I mean really! Lily Allen? What a dumb name! She needs a name like Britney Spears! or how about Miley Cyrus.. ? Very cool names and Such Incredible Talent!

You can't see through her shirt, in any picture!

Looks like a bunch of jr high boys have invaded the blog.. oooooh.. we saw ur nipples! Actually, she's pretty funny about them! Have you seen the youtube piece where she shows off her 3rd nipple? it's probably american guys who are all excited about them. its no big deal boys. everybody has nipples.. shhhhh! its a big secret!

last night was amazing...i been waiting over 3 yrs to see her live and finally did. she had fun and performed to perfection despite her being under the weather. NPSH on the otherhand, idk i couldnt really get into them. they had a couple decent songs but the first one was boring. Lily Allen was looking goregous as ever and i like her new hair. i proposed to her after the show and she accepted. sorry boys but shes taken now haha i wish.

PS...how can so many people get that wasted for a show? i had two girls outside practically wanting to makeout with me hah. (if they didnt stink of vodka and puke, i prob would have with a couple more drinks in me haha)

Love these pics, another reminder of a great show! And it's understandable they're not posting the nipple pics! I got my own anyway :)
