MEN @ a museum
Men

"The pop trio MEN, fronted by the former Le Tigre member JD Samson, made a triumphant return home recently with a performance at the Williamsburg Hall of Music. In cheekily full frontal fashion, they opened their set wearing a bright pink, three-helmet contraption that connected the trio with rods into a triangle formation. When not attached at the head with her bandmates, Samson leaped around the stage, enthusiastically leading the frenzied audience through song after song of electronic, danceable fun, and interlacing the carefree tracks with messages of radical politics and feminism." [NY Times]
That NY Times blurb refers to the April Brooklyn show. On Friday, May 13th, MEN got a bit more dressed up (as you can see above) for their headlining gig at the fancier Brooklyn Museum where they played a free-with-museum-admission show along with Savoir Adore. More pictures from that function, below...

in response to sara quin:

On his Twitter, Tyler responded to the post in predictably fucked up fashion: "If Tegan And Sara Need Some Hard Dick, Hit Me Up!"

2.04 beat me too it... yes it was at a museum. yes there is art in museums. why does the photog think its worthy of capturing a few art pics along with the subject in demand? to try to highlight his / her talent as a photographer? too bad he sucks!

@4:37 is jealous and spiteful. does anyone else feel slightly retarded to call egyptian mummies art instead of artifacts? how about you guys go to a museum more and recognize the difference between the two?
