Faith No More @ Williamsburg Waterfront - Friday, June 2nd (via my phone)
Faith No More

**Due to MTA construction there is no L Train service between 8 Ave, Manhattan and Myrtle-Wykcoff Aves, Brooklyn**

Here are 3 alternate options to get to the Williamsburg Waterfront from Manhattan:

-Take the 7 Train to 45th/Court House Square and then transfer to the G Train at 23 Street-Ely Avenue, then take the Brooklyn Bound G Train to Nassau Ave.

-Take the J, Z, or M Train to Marcy and there are shuttle busses to Bedford Ave, or it is a short walk to the venue
-Take the E Train to 23 Street-Ely Avenue and Transfer to the G Train to Nassau Ave

In Brooklyn take the M to Marcy Ave, or take the G train to Nassau Ave. There are also shuttle busses running along the L line beginning at Myrtle-Wycoff and ending at Lorimer St. From the Lorimer stop, walk west down Metropolitan to North 6th St. (under the BQE). Continue west to Kent Ave. and go two blocks north to North 8th St.

That info via the MTA is important to note if you're heading to Williamsburg Waterfront tonight, July 5th, to see Faith No More, James Chance and comedian Neil Hamburger.

If you were at the same venue on Friday night, July 2nd, then you probably know that Faith No More played a 2-encore, 20-song set that ended with "We Care a Lot", included "Epic" but not "Falling to Pieces", "The Real Thing", "Zombie Eaters", "War Pigs" or "Edge of the World". It also included, like the rest of the tour, an opening cover of "Reunited", and unlike Coachella, their cover of "Easy".

One night later in Philly they switched things up a bit. Brooklyn got a Bee Gees cover on Friday. Philly, like Coachella, got the Jackson 5's "Ben". Both nights got Vangelis to kick off the encore, but Philly only got one encore (no "We Care a Lot" for them at all).

Not counting his little son that he brought up (aka embarrassed) on stage, Rahzel played completely solo during his opening set on Friday. Mike Patton didn't join him and he didn't later join Faith No More... like he did in Philly for "Chinese Arithmetic".

A full set of pictures from the Brooklyn show is coming soon. Meanwhile the Brooklyn and Philly setlists, and some videos, are below...

Man, I am so glad I went on Friday. No way in hell would I want to bake in the 98 degree heat today.

why were janis joplin's parents so proud of her?

because the la country coroner informed them that she died of a heroin overdose

How could ANYONE hate on FNM? Really? I want to know. If it's not your cup of tea... fine. But to literally "hate" them or say they are "terrible"? Come on...

Whether you appreciate them or not, it is a fact that they are a great, talented band with one of the most charismatic, unique, and vocally amazing front men alive.

"I can't remember the last time their was so much hype for a less-deserving band"

Animal Collective, Wilco, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and like 95% of the other bands covered on this site.

Yep. Got there at 7:30pm and got a ticket for 20 bucks from the first person I saw selling.

It was a Neil Hamburger joke

G train on a holiday schedule... VERY slow traveling. bring a book and some water.

the walk from/to the Marcy JMZ will take a while, but it probably beats waiting in a 100 degree G station.

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2010 4:11 PM

Woohoo no Chu chu train!

P.S. what time did FNM hit the stage on friday?

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2010 4:14 PM


This is the same band that had bottles of piss thrown at them while opening up for GnR.

They've been hated on by people for longer than a lot of kids on here have even been listening to music.

Fun fact:
Mike Patton was a record store clerk at The Work in Eureka, CA a long ass time ago.

I think they have a 10 o clock curfew at the venue so it will have to end by then.

they suck, all bands suck, all music sucks, only video games and movies are any good and even those suck most of the time.

just curious but were there girls at this show? im kind of guessing the m/f ratio was pretty ugly

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2010 11:53 PM


amazing show. super tight performance. there were actually a lot of women there. they played We Care A lot and it was great. was a real rock show from a legacy act. Not bad at all!

Posted by Anonymous | July 5, 2010 11:56 PM

Awesome show. They still got it.

Posted by Ron Valdes | July 6, 2010 12:23 AM

great performance, good set, lots of ugly americans, ive seen members from hopecon and vod there, shit was epic for me, fuck mta

Posted by bartosz Jasinski | July 6, 2010 12:27 AM

It was a pretty ugly crowd, but they were soooo into it. Good stuff.

Posted by db | July 6, 2010 12:34 AM

they are still my favorite band of all time. i can't believe i just saw them play. actually, i can believe it. i bought a ticket online a few months ago, put it in my calendar, and showed up at the venue at the previously announced show time. it was pretty simple.

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2010 12:35 AM

truly amazing show, amazing band, amazing night. i feel sorry for anyone who thinks these guys suck or doesn't get it. oh well. your loss!

CAN I GET A TRANSFER, MAN?

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2010 10:40 AM

Rahzel should have stepped it up a little. Pretty weak given the overall show. Def weak freestyle.

Mike Patton is a musical genius people. From Faith No More to Mondo Cane. He is music.

I'm 60 years old...braved 100 degrees after a 3 hour ride to Brooklyn. With no air conditioning en route.. because? Mike Patton is a tour de force.

Posted by ME | July 6, 2010 9:15 PM

Clearly hispters wouldn't like FNM there hasn't been a biopic yet/the singer is not androgynous.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2010 12:34 AM

I wonder where all the fucking idiots who come and write comments here come from. I think it's all confused hipster-wanna-be rich kids that continue to move to WBurg because they think it's cool. So sorry for the type of readership crowd this blog gets.

Bands like FNM and Nirvana revolutionized music in the 90s you fuckers so you could pretend you're cool while listening to your lame indie bands now. That was real, FNM are real, you're not.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2010 12:32 PM

Exactly to the comment just above. The music at the concert was excellent. Sad to see the losers in the audience who were not into it. I lived in that area over ten years ago and there were still real artists living there/ slumming it a deserted area. The current crowd I can't even characterize as hipsters. They look like jock retards with rich red state mommies and daddies paying for the cool lifestyle in BK. Go see SMASHMOUTH, that's all your worth. Mike was dissing you with that encore.

Posted by Yulp | July 7, 2010 6:01 PM

12:32 I completely agree. Fuck all you posers insulting an actually talented band like FNM. I went to one of those shows and it was amazing. Let's see one of the pathetic bands you like put on a show like that :p go fuck yourself
