Iggy Pop & the Stooges played Music Hall of Williamsburg

“I am not exaggerating when I say that Iggy Pop’s udder was 6 inches from my mouth tonight. Thank god for corporate VIP shows that let me in.” –Klaus Kinski

“thank you upscale corporate New York assholes” –Iggy

Iggy Pop and the Stooges have public shows coming up that include NXNE in Toronto in June and ATP NY in the fall. Last night (5/12) they played a free, but invite-only show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (capacity around 600 lucky people) with the Virgins (who joined the Stooges on stage) and Free Energy.

Despite rumors that he was retiring, Iggy did stage dive. As you can tell from the above picture, Iggy also invited the crowd on the stage as usual, but during “Shake Appeal”. The band consisted of Mike Watt, Scott “Rock Action” Asheton, Steve McKay on sax, and guitarist James Williamson who took over for the deceased Ron Asheton. The crowd was not actually as upscale corporate as Iggy pointed out – there was a mix of everyone including old punks and models. Some young punk rockers spotted in the audience included Ed Droste from Grizzly Bear and members of Dirty Projectors. The venue was decked out with old rock n roll photos. There was a VIP area upstairs and open bar and food. Before the encore, Iggy made mention of the fact that it was cool that nobody had to pay to get in. Thanks PP for the report.
