Eels @ Highline Ballroom (night 1), NYC – pics

Eels have been more renowned of late for their ever-cynical frontman E’s dry gags–inviting George Bush to their show in D.C., attempting to buy a one-second Super Bowl ad–than for their patented Paxil pop. But it’s still just as you remember it–brooding, intense, mildly funky. They’ve just released a greatest-hits set, a two-disc B-side comp (both with corresponding DVDs), and their fifth(!) live album (available only at their shows)–all of which don’t have many revelations beyond a few decent singles since they last fell off your radar.

Eels play their second of two shows at Highline Ballroom tonight (April 2). More pictures below….
Hey…was at the show last night. I arrived at 8:15 and there was a documentary being shown about his father. Supposedley it started around 730. I did get a seat but all the way on the side of the stage. Provided a good view for the concert but a not so good view of the screen. Concert went til 1045 ish. Was a great show. Lot of Electro Shock Blues songs played. Enjoy [Anon]
