HOT CHIP Bring It To Webster Hall

After lying in bed all day deliberating over whether or not to do it, I had to pull myself out of a deep and dark hangover yesterday to make my way to the sold out HOT CHIP show at Webster Hall.

I am so glad I did.

Once the five piece synth band took the stage, I immediately started feeling better. And wow, did they have a high charged audience to work with! The entire building was teaming with excitement and energy...and when the boys finally got to the ultimate crowd-pleaser "Over and Over", I thought the floor was gonna fall through.

The highlights for me were definitely the hypnotic version of "No Fit State" and the closing outrolude cover of "Sexual Healing".

I was bummed to miss TUSSLE's set, as they are a fantastic live band that I caught in San Francisco a few years ago when they opened for ERASE ERRATA. Did anyone see them? How were they?

P.S. There is something extremely wrong about the bartenders at Webster Hall...

I can't believe they played Sexual Healing. I requested it on Thursday and Al gave me a "Yeah, right" and of course didn't play it. I need to hear that song live.

It was a very short rendition, but welcome indeed.
