"OMG! @GAYNGS are SICK! Feat. Justin Vernon @boniver & members of Megafaun, Rosebuds, Solid Gold, etc. #Epic" -barryeb

"Just got this photo of Glasser covering Sade with Gayngs from @terriblerecords.. Any of y'all go?" -truepanther

Gayngs @ Bowery on October 3rd..
Gayngs

The band has a whopping 23 members, but I believe I saw somewhere between 11 and 13 members on stage at once. "Gayngs" is pronounced like "gangs" for those who are wondering. Their music is indie rock, a bit on the mellow side, but it definitely had some funk and soul. I appreciated that most members of the group were either wearing sunglasses on stage, or had really cool hoods for the duration of the show, adding to the laid back vibe. [According2g]
Gayngs made their NYC debut on Sunday, with a show at Bowery Ballroom. They play again tonight/Monday at MHOW.

Glasser opened (and opens again tonight) and also played with Gayngs. As it says above, she covered Sade's "By Your Side" with the band (they also covered "Cry" by Godley and Creme). A video of that from the Chicago show, and the setlist from the NYC show is below...

let's establish the death penalty for anyone who uses EPIC when describing just another fine show.
new rule: you can't use EPIC if you hadn't seen at least 2000 shows in your life.

It was actually Justin Vernon who sang "By Your Side." It was the best song of the night, but it's all relative. Otherwise, yes, it was pretty much snoozetown 2010.

Gayngs are EPIC. How they turned 4+ blah bands into one massive blah band is amazing.

Blah on indie rock.
