"Went to my first "show" in 85 I think. I have never seen adoration like the crowd and @TheFrontBottoms right now." - Craig Finn
The Front Bottoms poppin' champagne / TFB & friends / Tiny Moving Parts' crowd
The Front Bottoms and BrooklynVegan teamed up once again for the holidays this year, this time to present the Champagne Jam at all three rooms of Webster Hall on Sunday (12/21). TFB headlined the sold-out show in the Grand Ballroom, and their set in that room was prefaced by Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn, Kevin Devine & the Goddamn Band and magician Magic Mike. Over in the Marlin Room, The So So Glos and Big Ups repped NYC punk, while GDP brought the alt-rap, and comedian Chris Gethard was there bringing jokes to a punk rock show (like last year). In the Studio, mathy emo was provided by Tiny Moving Parts and Prawn, and still even more artists played throughout the day. Brand New singer Jesse Lacey was in attendance, though not to perform with his frequent collaborator Kevin Devine. You Blew It! weren't billed, but members were attendance to perform with their past tourmates The Front Bottoms and their other past tourmates Prawn. Tiny Moving Parts and Kevin Devine joined TFB on stage during their set too. Pictures of the show are in this post.
