Super Furry Animals @ Maxwells

Super Furry Animals played their first of four NYC-area shows last night (Jan 23, 2008) @ Maxwell's in Hoboken....

It's been 9 years since the Welsh rock veterans Super Furry Animals have graced the Maxwell's stage. As Gruff Rhys recalls, he puked during the gig -- the only time he's done so. Nobody threw up tonight, unfortunately, but that doesn't mean the gig had it's share of strange moments. Maybe I'm not a hardcore or well-versed SFA fan, but I'm guessing the large helmet is part of the band's repertoire. it's like a cross between a Power Ranger and StrongBad. [Music Snobbery]
