The Handsome Furs

“the show was AMAZING! i think from my posts on this board it’s apparent that i am of the krug persuasion (what can i say, i dig accordions and marimba) but dan may be my new hero, and alexei my heroine. so much energy and audience dance parties galore.

the best part though, the two of them are just so HUMBLE and seemed genuinely honored that so many folks came out to see them. alexei kept putting her hands to her heart as if she couldn’t believe where she was…it’s just so great to see bands that truly appreciate what they’ve achieved, and to see audiences having such a good time…everybody wins.

and they are just so fricking CUTE and lovely together. at one point they touched foreheads and gave each other big happy excited faces – it was such an “awwww” moment (who knew dan boeckner was capable of soliciting an “aw?”)” [stuntgirl]

That review and the pictures in this post are from the Handsome Furs show at Bowery Ballroom last night (7/8). Tonight (7/9), they do it again with the same openers (Dri and The Cinnamon Band) at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

As stuntgirl pointed out, it was a great show. I completely agree with the humble/appreciation thing. Dan is also so funny and still talking about how NYC, and especially Bowery Ballroom, makes him nervous because of the time in 2005(!) that Wolf Parade played there and the Internet talked about how drunk he was the next day (sorry Dan!). More pictures from last night’s show below…
