Beady Eye @ Webster Hall
Beady Eye

"...in the Fall of 2009 the Oasis brothers, Noel and Liam Gallagher, get into a heated argument, which may or may not have involved the destruction of one or more musical instruments, Noel quits the band, Liam and the other band members decide to carry on. Fast forward to the spring of 2011 when what essentially boils down to Oasis minus Noel Gallagher drop their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, under the new moniker Beady Eye." [Live4Ever]
Beady Eye, who are sort of Oasis without Noel, played their first public NYC show at Webster Hall on Thursday (6/23). I say "public" because one day earlier they also played a full set at the Ed Sullivan Theater as part of the "Live from Leterman" series which you can watch in its entirety below.

The Webster show was opened by New York locals The Dig and is pictured in this post. Beady Eye played their entire debut Different Gear, Still Speeding, including the iTunes bonus track "Man of Misery." They also covered the World of Twist song "Sons of the Stage" in the encore.

Full Webster setlist, more pictures from the show and the Letterman video, below...

Band is a joke. Just proves that Noel was the only one who could write a good song in Oasis.

Great show!

Ugggh, this is worse than Oasis.

And Liam's haircut is ridiculous.

Jealousy is the right word for you boys. Pathetic.

hair is good, tunes are OK -- it's just when Liam talks he sounds like a dumbass...kinda ruins the whole thing...

@ 9:29 "it's just when Liam talks he sounds like a dumbass...kinda ruins the whole thing..."

that's the best part!

I have to say I really enjoyed the concert. I never saw Oasis, but Liam did his best Liam impersonation. Also, Beady Eye is no worse or better than any of the Aughties Oasis output (sans Don't believe the Truth). They are either your thing or not. Great English Rock N Roll which is mostly unavailable these days. They will never be Beatles or Stones but they will entertain and give 100%

Webster Hall was great. hope they come back soon!

I think Liam is fucking hot. He could rock my shit anytime.

Liam needs Noel.

Thank you, but I'll just wait for Noel's solo album.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2011 10:54 PM

Good band, love the vocals. Songs are not in the same league as Noel's, and records last a lot longer than people. Beats the hell out of American hiphop, pop and rap- at least this is music. Songs aren't killer and lack substance, though. Liam was a better Lim when he did his shtick while seething at his brother onstage. These guys look too cool for their own good. Can't wait for the Noel album.

Definitely on par with post-20th Century Oasis output. Good lp, good show with energetic crowd. A few of the songs are just classics.

Oasis was simply a lap poodle to Blur. What's The Story is the only album worth a quid.

So anything recorded by any of the Oasis boys AFTER they disbanded could be an improvement.

But you are still a fauxhemian if you went to this show

"Definitely on par with post-20th Century Oasis output."

Maybe true, but you seem to be forgetting that everything post Morning Glory sucked. Be Here Now is one of the most bloated, miscalculated records of the 90s. And the 3 or 4 after that just sounded like one retread after another.

The Letterman and Webster Hall gigs were both awesome. Liam's vocals can sometimes sound like shit but he was in TOP form for both gigs. I walked away VERY impressed and EXCITED for album #2.

I love how so many people love to dump on Oasis/Noel/Liam/Beady Eye on this blog yet any post featuring them is one of the most commented blog posts on the site. Just goes to show they still energize the people which is more than most bands can do.

Oasis was special...

sounds like the beatles to me.

Beady eye could be better than oasis if they write more songs like the morning son and the beat goes on. their next album will show whether they are worth sticking around.

Be Here Now is the only good Oasis album.

The other day I was at this dinner party in north Williamsburg and this fine chic was chatting with me and dipping her pita triangles into the hummus platter in a very sultry manner and as we discussed the quality of the Pinot Noir I noticed her boyfriend standing in the corner looking over at me with a beady eye.
