MR BROWNSTONE rocked Bowery, CYHSY tonight, tomorrow
same band, same venue, different year...
Once again I found myself being rocked by Mr. Brownstone - this time reunited - at Bowery Ballroom in NYC until the wee hours of the morning on Saturday night (Nov 10, 2007). The four-band show started at 8pm, included a set by all metal Bee Gees cover band Tragedy, and ended around 3 in the morning. The sold out crowd sang along to pretty much every Guns N Roses song you could possibly want to hear (note: Brownstone are a Guns N Roses tribute band). There was lots of booze flowing - on stage and off....
The bass player fell off the stage, more or less on top of me, twice. The lead guitarist once. The guy wearing the kilt took a long swig of Jack Daniels and then spit it right on me. Really. A long, wet stream. I had to clean my glasses. Women were throwing bras on stage. And at least a hundred plastic glasses of beer were tossed up as well. Everyone was sopping wet.

As you know, the guy in the kilt sides as the drummer in another band, and it's that band that brings him back to Bowery Ballroom again tonight (Nov 13) (also sold out). Clap Your Hands Say Yeah play Studio B in Brooklyn tomorrow as well. Their latest tour dates, below....
