Tom Tom Club @ McCarren Pool

Tom Tom Club played after Dan Deacon and before Devo at McCarren Pool last week. They were fun. The highlight for everyone seemed to be their hit “Genius of Love“. The low point for me was a cover they did towards the end. I can’t remember which song, but it was a popular song, and it made me think “wedding band” more than “this group contains two original Talking Heads members”. Speaking of which, they also played “Take Me To The River”, the Talking Heads song that is actually an Al Green song. Tom Tom Club’s reggae frontman Mystic Bowie sang on that one. He has a great voice, and I wouldn’t call that cover bad. It was actually okay, but it wasn’t even close to as good (obviously) as it would have been had David Byrne been singing it with the same bass player and drummer. The show wasn’t free, unless you happened to know someone who lived nearby with roof access. Check out “Take Me To The River” as it looked and sounded from very high up…
