Fischerspooner

So how was [Thursday] night's Music Hall of Williamsburg show, only the second on their tour for Entertainment, and the first of a stand that [continued Friday] at Webster Hall? Hardly rudimentary, my dear. Let's dispose first of the big news: Madonna was in attendance (hanging off of some man, Lourdes knows who).

Spooner, surely to her dismay, made Madonna's presence known -- probably mischievously, as he also asked, seemingly with mock surprise, where she'd gone to once the set was over. (Madge ducked out after a few songs.) So what new material might she have gathered for her own live show? We were too busy attempting to move in rhythmic patterns to jot down any notes, but with four dancers (in a variety of often shiny costumes), two stand-up mirrors, two flat-screens, and a large video projection, the crew created an ultraenergetic, unapologetically arty, but resolutely playful stage show. [NY Mag]

If you count the three rehearsals, Fisherspooner has now played five NYC shows in the past 2-3 weeks. More pictures (including the NSFW opener No Bra) from MHOW below...

That teh gheys have started to imitate teh hipsters has got to be one of the saddest cultural trends ever.

seriously commenters? i mean, nobody ever lost money betting against the open-mindedness of anonymous haters on internet comment pages, but really?

i wasn't even at the show, but looking at the pictures it looks like the band went to great lengths to provide an immersive visual component along with their music. are you really put off by gay people, strange stage costumes, and choreographed weirdness? are you proud of your prejudice and narrow-mindedness?

furthermore, i seriously doubt whether any of the haters on this page have ever bared their bodies and performed in front of a large group of people, knowing full well that some people wouldn't dig it, but doing it anyway.

once again, on a comment page, people say things anonymously that they would never have the balls to say in person. what's sad is that you people are probably missing out on a great deal of what life has to offer, so i invite you to open your minds a little. and if you're not into something, what possible benefit do you reap by knocking it down?

12:48 - your thin skin is showing...almost as much as No Bra's boobs were.

"it looks like the band went to great lengths to provide an immersive visual component along with their music."

yes. and thats all they do. perhaps they should, oh, i don't know, focus on the MUSIC instead of releasing aprox. 1,678,456 remixes of 'emerge'?

What the hell are you talking about, 4:42??? NSFW's last EP sounded like the Crystal Castles meets Dan Deacon. If you're gonna criticize TBA, at least be truthful about it, idiot.
