O’Death @ Spiegel, NYC | pics + Tour Dates + mp3
I finally saw next–big–thing O’Death AND went to the Spiegel Tent all in one shot last night! Jeff Heartonastick has been urging me to see O’Death since late May. That’s like four years in blog time, especially when the local band plays often enough to keep you constantly reminded of how you’re not seeing them. In fact:
O’DEATH | TOUR DATES
Sep 29 2006 – The New Party Club Brooklyn
Oct 3 2006 – Empty Vessel Project Brooklyn, NY
Oct 6 2006 – goodbye-blue-monday brooklyn
Oct 26 2006 – Cake-Shop New York, NY
Oct 27 2006 – The Lake View House Summit, NY
And I’ve been trying to go to the Spiegel Tent since it opened all the way back in August. It was great, but unfortunnately it’s closing in a few days. The free outdoor bar space that’s right on the river and open till 4am with music blaring and tons of cool seats is especially nice.
And yes, O’Death were as great as everyone says – like Man Man, but good – JUST KIDDING (about the Man Man part).
The front-man is bizarro world Alec Ounsworth, and hopefully he’ll be just as successful (Alec headlines Summerstage with his band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah tonight actually).
The drummer eats babies for breakfast.
The bassist is more metal than Mastodon, well except that he plays Bluegrass.
This banjo player thinks Sufjan is dumb (JUST KIDDING AGAIN).

O’Death opened this Gothamist Movable Hype show on Wednesday night – September 27, 2006. The Big Sleep played after them and the Occasion. The Rogers Sisters closed the show. Stereogum was also there.
