Ben Kweller- Last night at Southpaw
I had to go to the Mercury Lounge to see the band The Frequency perform at their first ever New York show, opening for the 1990's. I was very impressed by their trippy, psych rock sound-even if it isn't exactly the type of music i usually listen to. Similar to the Album Leaf, Air and Stereolab it was dreamy music that could easily fit into a movie soundtrack such as 'Lost in Translation.' Those who had turned up early seemed pleasantly surprised by a band that is sure to be moving onto larger tours sometime soon. I was sad not to be able to make it out to the last night of the Ben Kweller album performances at Southpaw. Did anyone go? I am curious what he encored with as well...
