Much like they did the night before at Bowery Ballroom, Gayngs played a NYC show with Glasser last night (10/4) at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and covered Sade (and George Michael). The multi-member group, which started with 23 members but became 10 for this tour, includes band leader Ryan Olson, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Ivan from the Rosebuds, and members of Megafaun (and opener Glasser). Pictures from the Brooklyn show are in this post, as is the video of their appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon which happened last night too. They played "The Gaudy Side of Town" for what was probably the first and last time they ever appear on TV...
Express Night Out: How does the 10-piece compare to the full ensemble?Gayngs also recently laid down some tracks for Daytrotter, including "The Gaudy Side of Town", the Sade cover, and others. Grab those.
Ryan Olson: It's way tighter musically. We had two days to practice with 23 people and make that shit gel. It's starting to feel like a band right now which is really fun. It's ridiculously fantastic, over-the-top fun.
Express Night Out: You've been emphasizing that this isn't a real band.
Ryan Olson: It's kind of more like a surreal band. It won't ever happen again.
Meanwhile Glasser has a just-announced headlining show of her own on the way. The chanteuse will make an appearance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 11/16. Tickets go on AMEX presale at noon on Wednesday (10/6) with regular sale kicking off at noon two days later.
