"New York City rules. These guys just finished two nights at Madison Square Fucking Garden opening for Depeche Fucking Mode, and followed both gigs up with late night sets in venues about the size of my living room." [les pensées insouciantes]
And one of those gigs was right next door to the Living Room... Monday night at Cake Shop to be exact. That's where the pictures in this post are from...
"...it was a place to hear rarities, like the first US live performance of "People They Know" from their 2002 self-titled debut ("We wrote this when we were younger and slightly pretentious"), or a string of songs from 2004's Falling Out ("Far Away, By My Side," "(I Just Wanna) See Through," and the title track), or a bunch of covers they hadn't played in years, like the Nerves' "When You Find Out" and the Television Personalities' 1981 jam "Silly Girl."" [Stereogum]
Tuesday night was at Rockwood. Wednesday morning PB&J tweeted that they "just woke up after playing msg AND rockwood music hall yesterday. was it fun? yes." More pictures from Cake Shop below...
