Oh and I forgot

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is the best live band I have seen probably ever. 2 & 1/2 hours these gentleman rock within the confines of NYC's most notoriously B&T club meccas. They played here last Thursday, May 31st and it was amazing. Since their newest album, Baby 81 just came out, they were most assuredly playing a lot of songs from it. They also made sure to play all of my personal favorites and what seemed the audiences. Even after they starting taking requests, the boys were able play every song with what seemed a great intensity. They even gave out instruments...see..

And here is them playing "Red Eyes and Tears" to perfection.
If I could see this band live every night, it would be enough reason for me to move to LA. They just really are a genuinely good band. They connected with the crowd enough, but remained aloof, which heightened the cool factor. And with smoke, lights and cigarettes, i actually felt like I was at a live rock show venue. That is until 2 hours and 15 minutes into the show and you can feel the club beats underneath your feet. Shame on you Webster Hall. Its a rarity to see bands like this who remind you what live music should sound and feel like...
