The Knife @ T5, 5/1/2014
The Knife
The Knife

The show began with the entire stage backlit and drenched in fog. Suddenly music began as if coming from nowhere and voices soon followed. Everything seemed extremely calculated, movements happened precisely on cue and there was no leader present on stage. Karin and Olof were never even properly acknowledged. Beams of light shone through every crevice of the stage and reflected off of shimmering crystals placed around the stage. Various people on stage took on vocal duties (Karin was actually a major factor in this aspect) and the overall collaborative nature really honed in on the idea of a classless (end extreme wealth!), genderless, and boarder free society. Of course there were some of the hits you'd expect as well. "We Share Out Mothers' Health" really kicked off the night and made people move, while the dancing to "One Hit" was a certain highlight of the evening. - [OMG-NYC]
The Knife wrapped up their sold-out, two-night stay at NYC's Terminal 5 last night (5/1) which was also the last on their North American tour. Same setlist and aerobicized dance revue as night 1 (read our full report). Pictures from Thursday's show are in this post. Did you go last night?

After T5, the Knife headed over to Westway for a karoake afterparty with Bill Murray. More pics from night 2's show below...

Oh, these are the people that did that Heartbeats song that Jose Gonzales covered. I like that song (both versions.) Good.

I'm all for communism but now that I see it means having to wear baggy star trek unis, I'm thinking Rand Paul.

You can find everything wrong with the modern world in these photos, and this group, but special mention goes to the choad in the Strokes shirt, singing along with his weird boner..

I'm so glad I didn't go to this. Also, melodicas should be heard and not seen.
