Chairlift @ Music Hall of Williamsburg, Valentine's Day (Feb 14) 2008
Chairlift @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

Chairlift opened that MGMT/Yeasayer show at Music Hall of Williamsburg back on February 14th. All three bands call Brooklyn their home. All three bands are friends, or at least Chairlift and MGMT are because the two bands are going to play some more shows with each other when they leave on a short tour together later this week. And although MGMT is not advertising a Brooklyn show, I'm pretty sure that the band "Tenspeed" (listed on Glasslands' schedule) that is playing with Chairlift at Glasslands TONIGHT (Monday April 7, 2008) is really MGMT in disguise (possibly now with a new member).

In related news, MGMT made this really cool 3-D video that you can actually use 3-D glasses to watch on the Internet. I am a sucker for 3-D stuff, and besides the fact that the video takes forever to load, I have to admit it's pretty cool. Find a pair of 3-D glasses (or make your own) and watch it at their site.
