Ida Maria @ Webster Hall (more by Chris La Putt)
Ida Maria

Ida Maria just played two NYC shows on June 12th and 14th (Bell House & Hiro Ballroom). Sasha Frere-Jones from The New Yorker was at the June 14th show at the Bell House.

Some observations on Ida (pronounced "eee-DA") Maria's set on Sunday night at The Bell House.

1) Ida Maria stuffed smokeless tobacco into her mouth twice during the set.
2) She confessed to drinking champagne before the show but waited until the last song, "Oh My God," to pour water over her head. [video below]
...
4) The drummer played something suspiciously like a drum solo before "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." It was really good.
...
6) I could probably watch Ida Maria scream for about fifteen minutes before getting bored. Actual words not necessary.

She's coming back this summer with shows scattered around the country in July and August including one taking place at Maxwell's on Thursday, August 13th with opener Franz Nicolay. Tickets are on sale now.

The above mentioned video, video blogs from Ida's June tour, and all tour dates, below...

Can we please stop hyping this mediocre junk?

Music coverage on this site sucks, get used to it.

Look at the last handful of bands hyped today, Ida Maria, Bloody Panda, KFMDM, Cave Singers and Fruit Bats. All complete and utter garbage who are blessed with aggressive PR people who give BV shit to cut and paste.

Meanwhile, Cracker played an amazing show on Thursday night and received no mention whatsoever here. Steve Wynn played the show of his life on Sunday, and BV ignored it. Instead you got lousy pictures and a sophomoric review of Blonde Redhead and some photos and no review of Dinosaur Jr.

Go elsewhere for your real music news.

she could be hotter

To each their own, but I saw Ida Maria twice (opening for Glasvegas)and they were repetitive and a little boring. I really don't see what the hype is about.

"Oh my God" is good. The rest, Ida MEHria.

Couldn't resist that one.....!

Hey 6:10 don't read the site if you don't like what they cover or how they cover it. No one said you have to read BV.com.

Thank god for BrooklynVegan- I will now be able to enjoy Ida Maria for the third time this year, and Franz Nicolay for the fifth time in my life. Kudos, BV.

Love BV - one of the best blogs out there; hate BV commenters - some of the rudest and dumbest fucks out there...

Ida Maria is amazing live.

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2009 11:08 PM

Lay off dudes. The songs are good, band is solid, and she is a great performer. If you have a criticism, at least try to make it worth reading. (Other than "she is not good.' or the BV favorite, 'meh') Yawn.

Drew Carey died?

Ida Maria is amazing but only live...

If all I had to do was be aggressive my job would be so much easier. But alas it doesn't work that way kids.

Cracker?! You're seriously rooting for fucking Cracker? Why not throw in Camper van Beethoven and Cake while you're at it and win all three medals in the Laff-a-Lympics, fuckstick?

Posted by Crosseyed Sniper | June 30, 2009 8:30 AM

I also wondered if he was going to bring up the Spin Doctors or the Wallflowers. Was hoping. I know, Cracker. Tremendous.

Bloody Panda are fucking awesome, by the way.

i've seen her live when i played a club the same night she was playing in a different room. it really is terrible & offensive that she's considered a "great performer live". everyone likes different shit, obvs, but come the fuck on, the karen o syndrome of watching some chick in a sparkly outfit flop around on stage is really tired & obnoxious. just write a good song and it wouldn't be such a problem.

whatever, though, can't hate -- some people like mediocre junk.

Posted by katewbush | June 30, 2009 11:15 AM

she's started to look worse for the wear.
