Morrissey at BAM, 1/11/2013
Morrissey

Morrissey made his first trip to Brooklyn on Friday night (1/11) for a show at BAM, the second of four shows the former Smiths frontman is doing in the NY area this month. Opening the show with new-ish song "Action is My Middle Name" (which he performed recently on Letterman) and a handful of different oldies ("How Soon is Now," "Please, Please, PLease," "November Spawned a Monster") swapped in, the setlist was different enough for Moz fans to justify going to see him again after he was just here in October. (Setlist is below.) Of course for some, the only justification needed is he's playing. And those are the people who try and get on stage and hug him.

Like the shows in October, Kristeen Young opened. Morrissey plays House of Blues in Alantic City tonight (1/12) and The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on January 19.

In other Smiths-related news, Morrissey former co-writer Johnny Marr is on the cover of the new issue of MOJO. The issue comes with a CD featuring many of Marr's colaborations over the last 25 years, including Sandy Shaw's somewhat rare version of"Hand in Glove" which she recorded with Marr and the rest of the instrument-playing Smiths in 1984. It's also got "The Right Thing Right," the opening track from Marr's upcoming solo album, The Messenger (out Feb. 26), and you can stream that below.

More pics and setlist from BAM and that Johnny Marr song stream are below.

There were lots of tweets last night saying Moz went out after his show. He went to Wild Ginger in carrol gardens and then 285 Kent and hung out.

I saw Moz at Mammoun's enjoying a falafel on whole wheat pita.

Boners in Brooklyn for Morrissey

Morrissey was indeed at 285 Kent for about 10 minutes. It was weird. He was alone and said he was looking for a dog. He stared at the band for moment and then walked the fuck out.

AGREED

Enough of that kid Kyle and fuck Morrissey.

Thank you for these great photos! This was a fantastic show the crowd and energy were perfect. Morrissey was very engaging with the crowd and his banter was very funny.

Posted by chpea | January 13, 2013 11:15 AM

anyone know what band he was watching at 285?

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2013 12:33 PM

^He was never at 285 Kent you moron. Way to believe trolls.

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2013 2:30 PM

But he was at 285 Kent. His town car parked in front with the engine idling. Ask Chad and the girl with the arm tatoos who work at the door. They let him in for free.

^That is a lie. Go away troll

How about a new opening act for once? I think Kristeen Young has been his opening act since 2002.

that's the same kid that jumped onstage at T5
good setlist

Posted by Anonymous | January 14, 2013 9:06 AM

I liked it when the kid jumped on stage for a hug. Also, during "November Spawned a Monster," a girl came on stage and hugged Moz at the perfect moment in the song ("oh hug me, oh hug me.")

The setlist was pretty good, but as always, there are so many songs I wish he had performed. I could live without "How Soon is Now" and "Please, Please, Please..." As great as they were, I'd prefer to hear a couple of deeper Smiths cuts. Also, from the Mozzer's back catalogue, "Sister I'm a Poet," and "The More You Ignore Me," would have been welcome additions in lieu of say, "You're the One for Me Fatty."

He should bring back Irish blood

is morrissey technically a bear?

Posted by Anonymous | January 14, 2013 11:37 AM

LOL @ 2:30/5:28
Clearly he was at neither Mozzer's BAM gig or at 285 Kent. Too bad, he missed Mozzer at both!

Posted by Anonymous | January 14, 2013 12:45 PM

LOL @ 12:45
Clearly he is an idiot lying troll.

Posted by Anonymous | January 14, 2013 5:05 PM

Brilliant 6:32. A troll makes an original lying comment on here. Then some idiot posts said lying troll post on the facebook page of the event. Finally you being the biggest of all the idiots links to the facebook page as some sort of proof.

I'm a big fan of The Smiths music, but I gotta say the best song Morrissey ever sang was Suedehead.
