Rival Schools closed down the main stage at the Brooklyn Vegan Day Party on Oct 25th, and if you stayed with us, and weren’t feeling rather grim, chances are you were down in the Old Office enjoying (hopefully), the late addition to our party, Lightspeed Champion tear through a set that included two new songs and a bunch of covers by bands like Nirvana, Heart, and Pixies. Dev kept it light and fun, sometimes included members of the audience, and tried his best to hold it together after a late start due to the band/drummer (Jackson!) not bringing their own cymbals. Friend and partner in crime Emmy The Great (who also played the Brooklyn Vegan showcase at Music Hall Of Williamsburg earlier in the week) joined in on the festivities.
To make this post slightly more timely, the picture up there on the top is Lightspeed on Halloween (yesterday). Pictures from last week’s show, below…
The Mae Shi played on the same stage right before LC.
