MEN @ a museum
"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.
