Tricky & Veronika @ Irving Plaza, NYC – pics, setlist
a catch up post…

Though the show was billed as just Tricky, I think his female counterparts deserve a little more credit. Veronika, who wrote the song of the same name on Tricky’s new album Knowle West Boy, sang the female parts this time around. Unlike Fluxblog, the show exceeded my expectations. I have vague memories of bad times at Tricky shows in the past. No, Veronika isn’t Martina Topley-Bird and she definitely faked her way through some notes and lyrics, but I still wasn’t disappointed. The setlist was a good mix of old and new and I liked watching Tricky – I assume with the help of what he was smoking with his back to the crowd for a large majority of the show – go into a different place, especially during the extended, emotional encore. I also had a good spot right near the stage. I’m sure that helped a lot.
Check out our recent interview with Tricky if you haven’t already. More pics and the setlist from the September 4th show (sorry for the delay) below…
