THE B-52'S Played Roseland Ballroom

The B-52's looked and sounded fantastic at the Roseland Ballroom last night. The crowd was extremely energetic and most were dressed up for Halloween. What a fun night!

The band premiered about six new songs from their forthcoming album "Funplex", including the title song, 'Pump', 'Juliet of the Spirits', 'Keep This Party Going', and 'Love in the Year 3000'.

Highlights from the set were the the opening number 'Party Out of Bounds', which was followed by a killer version of 'Mesopotamia', as well as 'Strobe Light', 'Roam', 'Give Me Back My Man' and 'Planet Claire'. And of course the place turned into an all out dance masquerade for their biggest hits 'Private Idaho', 'Love Shack', and 'Rock Lobster'.

Unfortunately we missed The Rapture, who opened the show. I heard they were great, but I've also seen them many times before.

Rapture was boring and brought a bunch of undesireables to the show, a fight broke out at the end of their set near the stage where Kate stands. Although it was amusing to see them dressed as The Ghostbusters and I liked the dance that the guy playing the cowbell and saxaphone did. The B's put on yet another great set. I liked most of the songs from their upcoming album,especially Pump & Funplex, but wish they wouldn't have played so many new songs. I was really hoping they performed "Dance This Mess Around" and "Whammy". The 2nd encore after "Rock Lobster" of "Love In The Year 3000" was fun. It totally took the crowd off guard, and for a moment I thought in honor of Halloween they were going to sing Fred's classic "Monster".
It was a great Halloween and afterwards I was at the old Limelight and Johnny Dynell was spinning there too!
