Kanye West & Clipse @ Webster Hall - July 30, 2009

As predicted, Kanye West came out and performed one song with The Clipse (who replaced Drake) at the Diesel party at Webster Hall last night. After Clipse came The Roots who played a bunch of songs with Lykke Li. Earlier in the evening there were sets by Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, Heartsrevolution, The Noisettes, Theopholis London, Cobra Starship and Passion Pit. More about all of them after some sleep, but in the meantime, here are a few pictures and some video...

Jarvis Cocker played Music Hall of Williamsburg on the same evening. Grace Jones was entertaining at Hammerstein Ballroom.

yeah webster hall bring in more front lighting so all the assholes who spend the entire show at your venue with a crap digital camera held above their head (and blocking my view) can get a cleaner version of their shitty video. OR dont do it and just allow a professional crew to come in when necessary(on their dime) and add some front lighting / audience lighting when someone worthwhile is there and are actually being recorded by someone other than an nyu student.

It WAS really hot in there, but that's just from the smoke machine that had been running since 3pm.

I'm surprised by the number of fotogs in the front. The shows I go to people are usually into the performance, not recording it so they can brag about it to their fag friends. I like Clipse and The Roots (not surprising that they're some of the few hip-hop acts that play out regularly) but question whether fans at their shows are there for the performance or the seen [sic]? If not, why the over-abundance of cameras?
