Art Brut - Night 2 - Mercury Lounge

"I like Argos best when he's in Jonathan Richman mode, wide eyed and excited by the world: modern art, new girlfriends, summer jobs, amazing hangovers, mysterious bruises DC comics, chocolate milkshakes. And this was the Argos we got Monday, though a slightly, slightly subdued one thanks to recovering back problems. (Less bouncing, but he still goes into the crowd.) The new songs sounded great, better than on record. [Bill Pearis' Monday review]

Art Brut played their second of five shows at Mercury Lounge in NYC last night, Tuesday, June 2nd. The first show was one night earlier. The setlist included a cover of The Ramones' "The KKK took my baby away". Full setlist and more pictures below...
