Sunset Rubdown @ Mercury Lounge, NYC | pics (night 2)

Unfortunately Sunset Rubdown‘s second of two sold-out shows at Mercury Lounge was plagued by a case of food poisoning (Wed, May 24, 2006). Keyboardist and frontman Spencer Krug (“the guy from Wolf Parade”) wouldn’t say where he ate the bad food. The restaurant was actually close by and he didn’t want to be accused of being slanderous. What’s more, he was too sick to drink, and he said he wasn’t used to playing sober. (“Isn’t that cute, he’s an alcoholic”, he said pretending to be a crowd member).

They opened strong with a cover of Prince/Sinead’s Nothing Compares To You. That replaced the Wolf Parade (and Sunset Rubdown) song they opened with on Monday which overall was the better of the two shows. Wednesday had a few low points.

AND: if you haven’t heard already, after Ohio, Sunset Rubdown & Frog Eyes played a last minute show at Union Pool in Williamsburg Sunday night. I didn’t know until yesterday. Did anyone go?
