Mission of Burma at Bowery Ballroom - 1/18/13
Mission of Burma

Mission of Burma were just over in Europe for a tour and upon returning home they stopped in NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on Friday (1/18) before playing a hometown show in Massachusetts on Saturday. They played a bunch of material off 2012's Unsound but also reached back to their Vs./Signals, Calls, and Marches period for tracks like "Dead Pool," "Academy Fight Song," and "Nu Disco," and they worked in a cover of The Stooges' "1970" before the encore.

The show was opened by Exclamation Pony, the new-ish project of Ryan Jarman (The Cribs) and Jen Turner (Here We Go Magic). More pictures of the show and both bands' setlists are below. You can also listen to audio recordings of MOB playing "1970" and "Good, Not Great" at Bowery Ballroom below, and download the entire show at NYC Taper.

Wished I saw this -- Absent Mind is a great song I would have loved to hear live.

No revolver?

Also, the cribs guy formed this pony band specifically to get in that girl's pants.

No Revolver and no Certain Fate. First time I've seen them that they didn't play those songs. Almost doesn't matter what they play though, as tight and utterly great as they are. Really loud too, how is Roger's tinnitus these days?

I've seen them not play Academy, Revolver OR Fate, and they're still amazing. Mosh pit during 1970 was the most fun I've had at a show in a while
