Friends at Bowery Ballroom - 7/7/12
Friends

Brooklyn's Friends are currently touring in support of their debut album, Manifest (out now on Fat Possum), and that tour brought them to NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom last Saturday (7/7) with Splash. They didn't go topless this time, like in Austin earlier this month, and seemed a bit more subdued in general, though they did invite people on stage to dance during their cover of Usher's "My Boo." The people up front were pretty dancey and enthusiastic for most of the show too.

More pictures from the Bowery Ballroom show are below...

Bowery Ballroom really lowered the bar with this booking. For shame.

Nothing says outing yourself like going to a show like this.

What on earth is 10:32 talking about? Like Bowery has any thought or care in what they book? They book hipster bullshit buzz almost exclusively.

Would rather see the iPods -- a band with real diversity from track to track!

Easy to pick up chicks at these shows though if you live in Manhattan. They hate to go back to Brooklyn or Jersey after the show.

brooklyn vegan: "a hardcore periodical"
more double bass drum and mindless screaming please...

while in reality another hack indie blog adhering to mindless corporate values. capitalism hummus

do "actual people" listen to hardcore?
what is interesting about "indie rock"?

should I "play ball"?
what is "taste"?
does anyone make up their own mind?
is obama a real human? is america a real democracy?
