MUNA played 3 nights at Irving Plaza w/ Meet Me @ The Altar, brought out Bowen Yang (video, night 2 pics)
MUNA released their self-titled third album in June, and they've been out on tour with Meet Me @ The Altar supporting it, stopping in NYC for a run of three sold out shows at Irving Plaza on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (9/30-10/2). They stuck to the same setlist each night, delivering a high-energy set that kept the packed house moving, focusing on the new album and including a few older favorites like "I Know A Place," "Number One Fan," and "Stayaway." They also did their cover of The Killers' (who, coincidentally, had a pair of NYC shows of their own twenty blocks north at Madison Square Garden on Friday and Saturday) "Mr. Brightside," and Sunday night got a special guest appearance from SNL's Bowen Yang, who they invited out for the set-ending "Silk Chiffon." Watch video of that and a few other songs from their Irving Plaza run, below.
Meet Me @ The Altar made for a great pairing with MUNA, getting the crowd warmed up with a dose of their arena-sized pop punk. Saturday was vocalist Edith Victoria's birthday, and she got a cake and a crowd-sung happy birthday to celebrate; she also joined MUNA on "Silk Chiffon" that night.
See pictures from Saturday, and MUNA's setlist for all three nights, below.
