THE TING TINGS at Bowery Ballroom
The Ting Tings rocked the sold-out Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan last night, blasting through an energetic set of which highlighted nearly every track on their debut album We Started Nothing. Katie White is a fantastic live performer, infusing the show with a blend of f-you attitude, punk-rock ferocity, and an unexpected perfectionism and grace.
The crowd was alive and dancing, most notably on highlights like their current single "Shut Up and Let Me Go", as well as "Great DJ" and the encore of "We Started Nothing". But perhaps the most infectious part of the show was the singalong anthem "That's Not My Name". Throughout the show a group of girls behind me kept shrieking out names like "Stacy" and "Mary-Jo-Lisa"! Needless to say, the energy in the room exploded when they launched into the track.
