alert2* HardFest NYC presents Crookers w / Major Lazer @ Terminal 5

* Flashing Lights (One Year Anniversary) @ MeanRed

<Updat3:  In lieu of getting my dance fix by going to check out Major Lazer at the HARDFEST party, I deferred to this FL shindig after checking out their guest DJ’s BBC mix (Toddla T) online.  The song selection and mixes were on point (download it)….too bad I didn’t stay to hear his set.

The highlight of the evening was the fact that this party was at a Chinatown strip mall.  Seriously.  There were glass window storefronts, chrome plated banisters all over the place, Christmas lights and carpet that made the whole place look like a cheap hotel lobby.  But it was awesome!  I am looking forward to checking out this spot again.  It had mad personality and if the music was as good as I imagined…there is no doubt I would’ve been rolling outta there at 4am looking to unload a bagpack of rubber dogsh*t from Hong Kong.  -AV>

I can’t give it a full rating so….quicky: 3.2/5

* White Rabbits @ Maxwell’s (Hoboken, NJ…gulp!)

***Review under construction*** -AV

The White Rabbits’ album ‘Its Frightening’ was my summer rock album of ’09.  The second album from this Brooklyn based (via Missouri) sextet was produced by Britt Daniel (singer/guitarist for Spoon) and added more flame to my romance with rock this year.

The whole album is dope.  Melodies, song structures, harmonies, lyrics….it is a complete album.  So go get a copy.  If you honestly don’t like it…send me the bill and I’ll pay for it.

Back to the show…

Multi instrumentalists

nice voices

2 singers – 1 guitar and 1 on piano (corona)

2 percussionist

they were their own roadies…setup own gear

great songwriting

all the instruments to make great music

collborative effort

small venue/tight stage

band had to walk thru the crowd to hit stage

encore (fave track salesman)

crowd was unbelievably thin

not your NY crowd

got to see a good band from ground up

see big things

studio does do magic on harmonies and voice

energy could have been higher

not much talking b/w songs

felt like they were racing thru set

cornbred

songs run range…from upbeat to slower tunes

wish they would have been happier to be there

go intro to cmjs next week


* Happy Feet w/ Rich Medina & Bobbito @ (Le) Poisson Rouge
