Lily Allen

Trouble Andrew, Matt & Kim, and Lily Allen played a MySpace Secret Show at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC last night, February 10th. It was the same day Lily’s new album It’s Not Me, It’s You was released.

I missed them, but I’m told Trouble Andrew played for only 15 minutes. Matt & Kim started at 9PM and played to an enthusiastic, but not full, room. It wasn’t until Lily Allen went on that the powers who be opened the flood gates and let everyone waiting outside into the venue. Then the room was packed.

It wasn’t as rowdy as NYC Matt & Kim shows usually are, but plenty of people in the audience were there just to see the smiling duo from Brooklyn. At least one crowd member told Matt exactly that, during one of Matt’s many peppy dialogues. For “Yea Yeah”, the song everyone knows from their older album, Matt had all the lights turned off and asked everyone to go even more nuts than usual (which for this show was not very nuts, though there were a few people jumping off the stage). The psychology is that if nobody can see you, you’re more likely to dance. Another crowd favorite was “Daylight” off their new album Grand. Before 10, they ended their set with “Silver Tiles”.

Lily Allen, backed by a full band, took the stage a little after 10:00. For the next hour she played a mix of old hits (“LDN”, “Smile”) and new songs. Fans were cheering and singing along to both. Lily jokingly suggested people must have been doing some illegal downloading, but she quickly followed that with a more serious “I don’t care, I don’t make any money off recordings”. The UK celebrity’s set closed with a cover of Britney Spears’s “Womanizer”.

Lily will be back soon, but at a much bigger venue next time. All tour dates HERE. Matt and Kim dates HERE. More pictures, and LA’s setlist from the show, below
