Jake Shears @ Bowery Ballroom - 5/6/2012
Scissor Sisters

Scissor Sisters' new album Magic Hour is out May 29, though you can already get the first single "Only The Horses" at iTunes, where you can get four remixes of the song too. Check a new informercial for the LP starring QOTSA's Josh Homme, below.

Don't ever accuse Scissor Sisters of not keeping it real. Though the band is clearly able to fill substantially larger rooms on multiple nights, the NYC crew, as they always do before a new album, played a small show at Bowery Ballroom on May 6th with Zebra Katz.

The Sisters played 7 new songs... including the first two singles "Only The Horses" and the rap-infused track "Shady Love." The dance party/answering machine message "Let's Have A Kiki" was also played and included a great choreographed routine with Jake and the back-up singers (see photo below). "Keep Your Shoes On" is a dance track that is destined to become a Scissor Sisters classic. "Years of Living Dangerously" is a slower song that the audience was definitely vibing to and "Baby Come Home" has a groove similar to "Laura." ...Sandwiched in between the new songs (all of which made their US live debut), were classic Scissor Sisters songs such as their cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," "Take Your Mama," "Mary," "Invisible Light," "Skin This Cat," "Kiss You Off," "Any Which Way," "Music is the Victim," and "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'." -[Zimbio]
Pictures anbd the full setlist from that show are in this post. It all continues, with the informercial video and all tour dates, below...
