Shellac

Shellac played the Bell House Tuesday night with Helen Money (aka Alison Chesley and a cello). Both fantastic artists, on tour together, also made an appearance at ATP NY over the weekend (specifically, Saturday 9/4). They also hit Buffalo along the way...

"One of the things that helped make their set most memorable from the last time I had seen them was the amount of crowd banter the band engages in. And last night at the Ninth Ward there were times you may have gotten confused as to whether you were at a rock show or watching stand-up comedy. Albini dropped his most recent favorite one liner. Bassist Bob Weston fielded questions from the crowd during a band solicited Q&A session. And all members took part in ribbing an unwitting attendee." [Buffalo Rising]
Another set of pics from Shellac at ATP (where the Q&A got cut), with some videos from the Bell House, are below...

The Bell House show was awesome. I hadn't seen them in 13 years and they are still so effing entertaining today. I also have to give props to the band's t-shirts -- Bob Weston was wearing a homemade, and misspelled, LCD Soundsytem [sic] shirt and I see Albini has a squirrel shirt in those ATP pics. Nice.

I agree with the disagreement. Great show, but best show in the world? Not close. Still, I left very happy.

And great pics? Decent at best.

Fantastic show. Really tight performance, but they can also play loose at times. I saw them at the Knitting Factory years ago and this was better. One of the best of the year for me.

Goddamn Shellac is awesome.

Last time I saw them was at Northsix, and that venue fucking sucked so badly that I found the show disappointing. Also saw them at Knitting Factory and would have to rate them equally fantastic. I remember that they did an early morning show there the day after, but I guess they don't do that anymore.
