Set in the makeshift Market Hotel, the headliner was preceded by the Surprisers, McDonalds, German Measles and Bishop Allen. The Surprisers were surprisingly good, McDonalds were spastic and loud, the German Measles had a lot of problems and Bishop Allen were top notch. As having seen Bishop Allen twice before, I would have had to say that this was their performance of theirs I've seen to date.The Yummy Fur continue their short tour in San Francisco tonight (1/18). More pictures and some videos from Friday night's Brooklyn show (which moved venues on the day of the show), below...
After a long break, the band from Glasgow finally took stage to finish their sound check and readied themselves for their set. Introduced by Kevin from What's Your Rupture?, [The Yummy Fur] jumped into "Career Saver"; their music is definitely a throwback, a combination of lo-fi punk and British pop rock. It was a lot of fun. Highlights of the show include performances of their singles "Sexy World", "Policeman" and their closer "Shoot the Ridiculant"; they ended their show with the encore number "Documentary of a Kid". All in all, I thought their show was very good despite the gloomy atmosphere of Market Hotel and its average sound quality. [Music Tasters Choice]
