Well I meant to go to Siren this year, looks like it was a heck of a good time. The thing is, I got home from The Dark Knight at 4am on Friday night and the G train is running as a shuttle and well it’s really really hot outside.
I did manage to drag myself out of my air conditioned room into the heat of the city for an after show at the Bowery Ballroom.
It was worth it. Despite a sparse and not entirely enthusiastic crowd Murder Mystery delivered. The retro pop was danceable and catchy as hell (I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person there who’s gonna have Love Astronaut stuck in their head all week.) Coleman’s deadpan vocals and Fels’ deadly bass lines floated through the crowd cool as a cucumber. If you missed this one they’ve got another show in the city on Sept 10th at the Highline Ballroom.
