Handsome Furs played Bowery, Terminal 5 w/ Spoon tonight
Handsome Furs @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC - April 6, 2008 (Jinners)
On Sunday I went to Bowery Ballroom (which I would like a lot more if it weren't usually packed with drunk hipsters that aren't into the band playing) and I saw the Handsome Furs. I love that band (it's my favorite of the Wolf Parade offshoots), but the music (which consists of Dan Boeckner on guitar and Alexei Perry on synth) is tricky to pull off live. But, as stated, I love it, I know Plague Park like the back of my hand, so it was great. If you'd never heard the music before, you might enjoy it less. [Another New York Playwright's Blog]
Handsome Furs play another NYC show tonight (April 9) at Terminal 5.
