Peter Bjorn & John @ WEbster Hall

I’m embarrassed to admit that I saw Peter Bjorn and John for the sixth time (Union Hall, Mercury, Bowery, SXSW, SXSW, Webster Hall) last night (May 1, 2007). Last night was the first time I saw a full set since Bowery though. They were okay – it’s always been pretty much the same set – this time they had a new set of jokes – seriously they integrate comedy into the show a lot. I wouldn’t say they should stop playing it – I just need to stop seeing them.

The two times I saw them at SXSW were at an MPR radio taping (totally accidentally – I was walking by early in the morning on the way to my own day show and it was just about to start), and at the Pitchfork thing (didn’t watch their whole set there though).

COOLEST THING THAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT: Au Revoir Simone opened, and then Heather from Au Revoir Simone came back to sing Victoria Bergsman‘s part in Young Folks

SECOND COOLEST THING: Fujiya & Miyagi opened. Actually that may have been the coolest/best/greatest thing. I love them – and they were definitely the deciding factor that got me to Webster Hall last night. They in turn, did not disappoint.

Fujiya & Miyagi

NOTE: Au Revoir Simone, Fujiya & Miyagi, and Peter Bjorn & John are all trios. Peter pointed that out.

All three bands do it again at Webster Hall tonight (May 2). Fujiya & Miyagi are playing a free show at South Street Seaport on July 6th. Au Revoir Simone are playing the Seaport on August 10th, AND playing Webster Hall again with Voxtrot.
