Great Gaylord & The Condo Fucks

After a raucous, sold-out first night of Norton’s 25th Anniversary celebration at the Bell House, the party continued at the Brooklyn venue on Friday (11/11) where once again the night was opened by The Nor-Tones (“Norton’s all-employee band includes members of the Little Killers, Daddy Long Legs, Stalkers, Girls At Dawn and LiveFastDie playing the hits of the Norton catalog.”)

Night two also featured a set by mysterious cover band the Condo Fucks (aka Yo La Tengo) with Great Gaylord (“the Greatest Lousy Singer of all time“?). For the Condo Fucks it was their second NYC show in a short amount of time, though their first one at Mercury Lounge was sans Gaylord. Yo La Tengo will play eight more sold out shows over Hanukkah at Maxwell’s (where Sunday’s Norton show headliner The Sonics played on Saturday).

Also on the Friday night bill, some of which fell under the “R&B/Soul revue” umbrella, was Jackie and the Cedrics, a new lineup of Greg Cartwright’s band Reigning Sound (featuring members of The Jay Vons), Mark Sultan (aka BBQ whose old partner King Khan played the night before), Lonnie Youngblood and the Bloodhounds with special guest Mick Collins (of the Gories and the Dirtbombs) on guitar, The Mighty Hannibal, Andre Williams (who also stopped by the night before), and Happy Organ man Dave “Baby” Cortez on keys.
