Modern Weepers

After much ado, The Modern Weepers revealed themselves on stage at Mercury Lounge in NYC on Friday night (5/27). Gary Dibble was in fact Mike Myers who was accompanied by Fred Armisen. A member of Morningwood One more band member (Wilder Zoby has emailed to say he was never in Morningwood) (someone I had no reason to doubt told me he was a member of Morningwood) rounded out the trio. Toby’s take:

The Modern Weepers is a very funny sketch paradoy on the new wave movement from the 80’s featuring amusing song titles like “Don’t Ask Me Personal Questions On the Dancefloor”. Both Mike Myers and Fred Amrisen donned accurate Mancunian and Cockney accents respectively never once breaking character. Their elaborate hits of the synth percussion were accompanied by emphatic and intense stares and lighting blasts to create the dramatic effect so typical of early 80’s new wave. . Lively crowd enjoyed the humor. They played for about 35 minutes total and abruptly left the stage.

Neckebeard Telecaster opened the show with help from a a boys choir. To quote “Anonymous,” “Spike Jonze was filming the whole concert (both onstage and in the crowd). Half the cast of SNL was in the crowd.”

More pictures of the show (what Toby could get before he was beat down by the Modern Weepers security brigade), and audio of one song, and the full setlist, below…
