Only spent two nights in NYC, but they were pretty busy and lots of fun.
Saw lots of art with K in the galleries in West Chelsea. Got caught in a thunderstorm. Went shopping for shoes, successfully (thanks K). Bought a Viva Voce CD. Ate well (beef wraps, thai noodles, french breakfasts) and drank better. Took a train, took a cab, took the subway. I did it all, and still made it to the plane on time.
Saturday night I went out to Brooklyn and met Will from the magnifiscent Thunderegg, Red Squirrel, a bundle of their friends (including the impressively attired two John O'Connors) and friends of their friends. After a moderate and restrained consumption of beers, we went out to see the excellent Cyd Glore's New Masterpiece at Hank's on Atlantic Avenue (surprisingly intimate and local).
In memory of a wonderful evening:
Cyd Glore's New Masterpiece - Upon Reaching
Cyd Glore's New Masterpiece - Dig on Sunshine
Thunderegg - The American Standard Is Slipping (And It's All Your Fault)
Thunderegg - Hall Pass
Thunderegg are currently in the studio recording their next album!
