The Pop Group @ Bowery Ballroom 3/17/2015
The Pop Group played Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday (3/17), the second of two NYC stops on the post-punk icons' first-ever North American tour. The setlist was exactly the same as Monday's Rough Trade show -- half new album Citizen Zombie, half classic cuts -- but Bowery got a treat as the band brought out Chiara Meattelli, who sings backup on the new LP, to sing with the band on a few songs. Pictures (including ones of openers Regal Degal and YOU), video of them playing "We Are All Prostitues" and setlist from Bowery are in this post.
As mentioned, The Pop Group are currently in Austin for SXSW and folks there have two more chances to see them: tonight (3/20) at the Pop Montreal showcase at Maggie Mae's; and then Saturday (3/21) at the free BrooklynVegan Day Party at Red 7 with Mew, Iceage, Ceremony, Screaming Females and more (RSVP).
