Gary Numan @ Webster Hall - 3/22/14

In his second SXSW performance of the evening, the U.K. singer behind the still-totally-genius hit "Cars" leaned hard against his mic stand as he delivered futuristic songs from the Seventies and Eighties plus brooding tracks from last year's Splinter (Songs From a Broken Mind), his first album of new material in seven years. At Elysium (where the pool tables were turned into a display of the latest Moog gear), he was overcome with gloom and intense emotion, feeling every throb of his synths. [Rolling Stone]
Synth pop pioneer Gary Numan is currently on a tour that he brought to Austin for his first-ever SXSW appearances (one of which the above review is from), and then to NYC for a headlining show at Webster Hall this past Saturday (3/22). Like at SXSW, we got a good deal of his new album plus those old favorites like "Cars," "Metal" and "Are 'Friends' Electric?". The show was opened by Gary's tourmates -- M83's pals Big Black Delta and Duke Spirit side project Roman Remains. Pictures of all three artists are in this post.

More pics, along with the setlist and a video of "Cars" from the show, below...

Gary is great but I kind of wish he had never heard NIN.

In everyone of those pics, Gary looks 100% cooler than any little twit that's been on this site.

Straight white dudes should give up the 'rocker' style before they turn 25. Anything after that and a serious law of depreciating returns kicks in. Not a good look. Kids, just don't do it.

Was Rockin Daddy there?

his poses appear disproportionate to his music. did he put out a metal album i'm unaware of? and listen kids, once you turn 30, just make sure your clothes fit you. other than that, all clear!

Hey kids, don't listen to the young communists here that like to tell you what to do and who like to mimic major label talent scouts who like to prep you on image and stage look. Rock out until your dead.

8:41 is 39 years old and sometimes shops at Hot Topic.

9:10 is a male that actually does effeminate things like shopping. Also known to shop for a surgeon who can surgically enhance a beard on his baby face...probably gets his eyebrows done too.
