“i really wish superchunk would tour more often. one of the best shows of the year tonight at mhow.” – jarid maged

Superchunk

“It was unclear just who was throwing the water balloons at last night’s Superchunk show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, but the band, back in town with Majesty Shredding, their ninth full-length record and first since 2001, were clearly tickled that their fans still had it in them.

“You guys are rowdy tonight,” singer-guitarist Mac McCaughan told the packed house of former teenagers halfway through the set, by way of congratulations. “Good for you.”” [Capital]

If you were feeling nostalgic last night (9/19) in Brooklyn, where would you go? You had at least two choices. Pavement was playing the Williamsburg Waterfront (one of their five area shows) and Superchunk was at the considerably smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg (their third of three NYC shows) with openers Toddy Barry and Wild Nothing. Well, if you didn’t have an advanced tickets to Superchunk, and couldn’t get one at the door, at least after your choice was made for you, you could just walk a couple more blocks where Pavement had plenty of room (Pavement also ended early enough to see the headliners of both shows).

Superchunk started their NYC run at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday, also played a free in-store at Other Music earlier on Sunday and will play Late Night with Jimmy Fallon TONIGHT (9/20), so set your DVRs if you’ll be out too late dancing to tunes chosen by Pavement’s Bob Nastanovich at the Living Room. Set Colbert to tape too because that’s the TV show Pavement will be on tonight.

Comedian and Music Hall opener Todd Barry, who took part in the Eugene Mirman Comedy Fest earlier in the weekend (and later Sunday night), sat in on drums with Superchunk for a Misfits song. Pics and video of that below.

Wild Nothing will be back in NYC in just 4 short days, as the band is scheduled to support Stars at Terminal 5 on 9/24 as part of a larger tour between the two. Tickets are still available.
