Brooklyn Bowl is a very strange place to me. I always feel like I’ve left NY and entered into a Twin Peaks set. The idea that people are bowling and there is a stage, audience and a band playing all in the same room is very weird.
I arrived around 7pm so I would have some time to catch up with James, Farzad, Mike and Chris, who are dear friends of mine. It’s always a treat for me to spend time with them and I don’t get to do it often enough. I also chatted with Matt who was on this tour with them and wrote about his experiences. It was always good to see Kelly, Madeline and Simon as well. I had good conversations with each of you.
They had a bunch of sound issues that plagued them through their set but the audience thoroughly enjoyed their performance.
Lonely Dear opened the night with an interesting set full of looping and various sounds — including having the audience sustain notes during certain songs. I enjoyed being surrounded by all of that sound.
