Art Brut - Night 2 - Mercury Lounge

"I like Argos best when he's in Jonathan Richman mode, wide eyed and excited by the world: modern art, new girlfriends, summer jobs, amazing hangovers, mysterious bruises DC comics, chocolate milkshakes. And this was the Argos we got Monday, though a slightly, slightly subdued one thanks to recovering back problems. (Less bouncing, but he still goes into the crowd.) The new songs sounded great, better than on record. [Bill Pearis' Monday review]
Art Brut played their second of five shows at Mercury Lounge in NYC last night, Tuesday, June 2nd. The first show was one night earlier. The setlist included a cover of The Ramones' "The KKK took my baby away". Full setlist and more pictures below...

Art Brut has managed to take everything that is annoying about the Hold Steady and give it an even more annoying British edge.
