Stream Mew's album this week at AOL Music.

Mew @ Hiro Ballroom

Except for two painfully cheesy songs, I loved Mew last night (July 26, 2006) @ Hiro Ballroom. The show was part of the Danish band's first U.S. tour. Hiro Ballroom was pretty filled up and happy (last time they were in NYC was 2003 @ Mercury Lounge - thx anon). Anna the contest winner also wrote in to say she thought the show was awesome. Try not to miss them if you're going to see Bloc Party. They're opening.

It was a painful decision to see Mew actually. It meant missing Antony @ Warsaw, but I successfully overcame my Antony addiction (the treatment is working) and went with my 'flavor of the month' instead. I'm happy I did.
