The Mae Shi

From their gig in the Knitting Factory Old Office (10/25), I’d say that that seeing The Mae Shi live is a lot like walking into a Mae Shi practice, with the band kicking through a set of rough sounding punk ditties that eventually settle into their charming power-pop shtick. Though the beginning was entertaining on its own terms – the band careened around the room (the guitarist made good use of his wireless) falling over each other and stumbling from song to song – the closing set of more traditional tunes was definitely welcome. Halfway through, the band stretched a huge parachute tarp (think gym class) over the head of the crowd to create a rustling rainbow tent. The confined, cluttered Old Office space was perfect for the band; in fact, I’m not sure how they would have pulled it off anywhere else.
