N.A.S.A. returned to Le Poisson Rouge in NYC for the 2nd time in just a few months. The first show was in January to celebrate the release of their album The Spirit of Apollo (out now). This show (3/12) was a stop on a larger tour that is on its way to Austin for SXSW. Both NYC shows featured deejays Squeak E. Clean and Zegon (collectively known as N.A.S.A.) dressed in their orange spacesuits and surrounded by scantily-clad, painted-green women, aliens and drunken, dancing fans (on the floor and on the stage).
N.A.S.A. rose to popularity pretty quickly due to an enormous amount of very talented and famous special guests appearing on their debut album. The list includes Karen O, Tom Waits, M.I.A., RZA, Kanye West, Chuck D, David Byrne, Seu Jorge, Santigold, Ol' Dirty Bastard and Kool Keith. You'd think then that MAYBE a NYC show by the group might include one of them. That is true, though it was one you probably never heard of. Ras Congo sings on the song "Money" on the album, and he did live at this show. Squeak E. Clean's mom was there too.
