the only people that play Vox guitars are those that get them for free as endorsees. no better than Heineken.

TV on the Radio can be hit and miss, but they were totally on point last night. Great sound and energy.

How long did BSS play for please? Wanna know if it's worth shelling out to see the Walkmen open for whoever they're opening for.

fantastic show last night

lol at those setlists.

Nothing near the MHOW show(s).

The Walkmen are opening for Fleet Foxes

BSS played for around an hour. Really good show

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 4:17 PM

I can't understand BSS. It's fine but...how do people get excited about it? It's so insular, not melodic, no real exciting instrumentation just kind of meanders along...

^ Agreed

Setlist is incomplete. Off the top of my head you're missing Province, No Future Shock, and I think a couple others.

Posted by Steve | September 9, 2011 4:27 PM

4:17 - what are you, Ed Sullivan?

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 4:35 PM

Province, yes.
No Future Shock, no.

Awesome show last night. So glad the weather held off.

4:21 and :25: While you are free to voice your opinion of BSS, especially in such a public forum as this, I'm wondering how five guitar players, a horn section, one of the best rock drummers of the last two decades, several great male and female singers and songwriters, mulitple keys and bass can sound "insular," "not melodic," with "no real exciting instrumentation?" I mean they aren't rocking the glockenspiel or anything, but, have you seen them live? And really, I'm not trying to be a dick, I honestly want to know. As I said, you are free to feel however you want to about BSS. I just happen to think they have great melodies and instrumentation.

"one of the best rock drummers of the last two decades"

So, how was your first week back at school, 4:54? Don't worry, it will get better once you hit 9th grade.

this show was better than mhow/radio city shows.....

tv on the radio did well last night.

bravo

Also, they're really fucking tight for a band that generally has ten people on stage and different members every tour.

you are so wrong 5:30. if you only knew.

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 5:33 PM

Crowd was terrible, people just standing around, nobody started moving until the TVOTR encore. Pitchfork was a much better concert, how you gonna let Chicago show you up like that Brooklyn?

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 5:36 PM

this show was terrible.
both bands sucked.

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2011 5:40 PM

the waterfront has to be scrapped for concerts. the crowd looks over at manhattan, wishing they could be there. a sad reminder that they are stuck living, or temporarily stuck, in Brooklyn

and the show stunk

what 5:33?

what should BV readers know? that you are extremely rich, and a guitarist in a famously talented band? but also, that you still take time out of your extremely busy schedule to monitor a blog on BV?

@5:43 and here you are, reading a blog called BrooklynVegan.

Hey 5:43 Please respond to the Iowa accusations. This blog is for we New Yorkers only. We even hate Jersey people, and other translpants.

Ed Sullivan would have called it a really big show.

5:08 - Dude fucking jams. And you're a snarky douche. Have fun living in mom and dad's basement!

BSS were awesome as always, but why is this their "last NY show for a very long time?" another four years until the next album?

and kudos to their guitar tech. that guy's got a tough job!

are the shows here free? I only ask because if you dolled out hard earned dollars to see this clown shit then fat sweaty guidos should break both of your legs right before tossing you off of the Manhattan bridge.

Glad the show was good. Glad you kids enjoyed it. I had tickets and could not go due to personal crap. Hope to see them both some day.

@ 6:31 ummm, show me where it says this blog is for 'we New Yorkers', it is on the f'ing internet you self loathing ass

I hope the second song on that setlist is a Sublime cover

Great TVOTR show. The only problems were the start time of BSS. They started at 6:30 and everyone I know missed their entire show (which ended at 7:30). The other problem is the crazy beer drinking segregation. The whole place becomes a segmented crowd of people up front closed in, beer drinkers off to the right and everyone else behind. The venue is weak.

obviously a transplant from Ames Iowa, now living in a rip off, run down, basement in bushwick

i agree, the venue is weak.. had to sneak out from the crowd to get a beer,one of two choices & then fight my way back to my spot. my friend sadly could not get back to me & but i did enjoy the set alone, i forgot to mention that you have to stand in line to get a bracelet if you are drinking, then stand in line fort a ticket, then stand in line to get a beer & drink it there in the designated area. I did thoroughly enjoy both bands but will think twice attended this venue any time soon.
