Broken Social Scene & The Belle Game @ Brooklyn Steel (pics, setlist)
After playing The Meadows fest over the summer, Broken Social Scene brought their Hug of Thunder tour back to NYC for a club show at Brooklyn Steel on October 4. The multitudinous current lineup of BSS opened the show with two oldies -- "KC Accidental" and "7/4 (Shorline)" followed by "Halfway Home" and "Protest Song" from the new album. The whole show was a great mix of new and old, wrapping up with "Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl" and "Ibi Dreams of Pavement (A Better Day)." New vocalist/guitarist Ariel Engle held down the fort, with some onstage help from The Belle Game (who opened). Meanwhile, Kevin Drew spent some time singing from the middle of the crowd.
Pictures from the night are in the gallery above and you can check out the setlist below.
