The Blue Album Group

Last night, election night, I made my way to The Bell House in Park Slope/Gowaus for what was sure to be a nervously excited crowd counting down the minutes until the new president was announced. I’ve only been to The Bell House once, but I can’t imagine that the new venue has ever been more packed than it was last night. People came out in masse for the election coverage – so much so that they even turned people away at the door. I think I heard 500 people. Watching an election in a large group of like-minded individuals like that was truly overwhelming – especially when they announced Virginia and a bunch of people jumped on stage and gave everyone a beer shower.

After Obama gave his acceptance speech, things didn’t calm down. Host Eugene Mirman said a few words congratulating our first “half-white president,” and introduced The Blue Album Group, who rocked out, pretty much note for note, Weezer’s Blue Album. Though a lot of people went home, those that were left drunkenly danced and celebrated. After the last note of “Only in Dreams” rang out, I grabbed a quesadilla from the Red Hook soccer field vendors – another big draw of the evening. It was delicious.
