A.C. Newman and friends @ Bowery Ballroom
A.C. Newman opened his set with the first tracks from both his solo albums (“Miracle
Drug” and “There are Maybe Ten or Twelve”) but the highlight for me was definitely
“Like A Hitman, Like A Dancer.” There were so many people onstage and it reminded me a bit of seeing The Magic Numbers at Barrowlands in Glasgow, Scotland a few
years ago — which reminded me of seeing Fleetwood Mac with my dad in California for my 20th birthday. Oh life, oh music.
At one point Newman commented to the redhead on his right – saying “It’s kinda distracting when girls are dancing next to you — it’s B.S. — I don’t dance in front of you — it’s give and take!”
And as much as opener Dent May kinda freaks me out his magnificent ukulele was indeed magnificent. He freaks me out because well — watch the video below and let me know how you feel.
