Leatherface at Knitting Factory in March
Leatherface

Leatherface... blew the doors off a sold out -- and then some -- performance at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory...
The crowd, far younger than I expected, was filled with fans in their twenties and thirties who were fully supportive of Stubbs & Co.... Stubbs, looking near 50, probably seemed far more fascinating to this crowd of young'uns precisely because he was not another twenty-something from Brooklyn. He was exotic.
Stubbs belted out songs like "Springtime" (arguably the group's best song), "I Want the Moon" (the one that made the venue positively erupt) and "Never Say Goodbye" (the "single" and a superb one at that from the new album) with conviction and pathos.
The group also played, among others, "Isn't Life Just Sweet?," "Broken," and "Diego Garcia" from Stormy Petrel. Leatherface's epochal Mush (1992) also gained plenty of attention with the spine-tingling "Not Superstitious," "Dead Industrial Atmosphere," "Not a Day Goes By," "How Lonely" and "Message in a Bottle," by THE POLICE, all getting a hearing. - [The Big Takeover]
Two months and seven days after playing Knitting Factory (March 5th), Leatherface is back for a second helping on May 12th as part of a larger US tour that includes an appearance at Chaos in Tejas. Tickets are on sale.

Unfortunately, they did not play Pandora's Box.

They didn't follow that setlist exactly. They played something before Springtime.
