About two years ago you played a small club in Williamsburg called Glasslands and a year and a half later you’re on Saturday Night Live, and now two sold out shows at Terminal 5, it sounds like it’s been a crazy ride. How are you holding up?

It’s really crazy. I think mostly because when you’re living in LA, playing in New York was kind of like this crazy, unattainable thing. “Oh, I hope we go to New York one day.” But in the past two years, we’ve played New York more times than we’ve played LA. And we’re always so surprised because comparing New York to LA crowds, LA crowds are very tame and in New York we’re always thinking “It’ll probably be a lot like LA.” And every time we’re in New York we always get reminded of how crazy and rowdy New York audiences are. It’s just so much fun to play in New York. It’s fun to play in LA also because it’s my hometown, but it’s crazy to come to New York and play these crazy shows. And my 21st birthday I played a show in New York, it was Santacon where everybody dresses up as Santa for a day, and so the craziest show I ever played was that 21st birthday. It was the best 21st birthday I could ask for. – [Gothamist]

HAIM‘s ascent continues, having just played their two biggest NYC shows yet — back-to-back sold-out shows at Terminal 5 over the weekend. At Saturday’s show (5/10) the band played everything from their debut album, Days Are Gone” except “Go Slow” and they did a couple covers too — Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and Beyonce’s “XO.” They also had a version of the album’s art set up so that fans could take their picture against it like they were on the cover.

Tennis is opening a few of the dates on the current tour (including the Sunday [5/11] T5 show) but on Saturday night the opener was Portland’s Shy Girls (aka Portland musician Dan Vidmar) who also played Output’s Panther Room the next night. (UPDATE: That Panther Room show got cancelled last-minute, actually.) His set included a cover of Brandy’s “Sittin’ Up In My Room.” You can stream the studio version of that, and check out pics from his T5 set and more pics of HAIM, below…
