The Legends @ the Bell House – June 23, 2009
The Legends

The Legends played the first show of their East Coast tour last night at the Bell House — a loud, zippy set (a bit short for a headliner if you ask me), hitting most of the band’s singles, including “There and Back Again,” “Call it Ours,” and the feedback-heavy new single “Always the Same.” (No “He Knows the Sun,” though, to the disappointment of a few very vocal, inebriated fans who seemed to be having a great time nonetheless.) The latter is a duet with Joe & the Flying SpoonsLiane Moccia who is also helping out on keyboards for the duration of The Legends’ five-date East Coast trek, which now includes opening for the Lemonheads tomorrow night (6/25) at Bowery Ballroom. (Tickets are still available.) All Lemonheads dates below.

The Legends also play an early show tonight (6/24, 8:30) at Santos Party House with Eagle & Talon, Blacklist and We Are Country Mice; Friday (6/26) with Band of Skulls at The Studio @ Webster Hall; and Philadelphia’s Kung Fu Necktie on Saturday (6/27). Video from last night, and updated tour dates, below…
