Kremkaus Write And Shoot
More pix as well as a write-up from the March 30, 2009 Webster Hall Glasvegas Show at http://www.readjunk.com/reviews/livereviews/glasvegas-webster-hall-nyc/
I went to this show and yes, there were some sound problems, but it was fun being up front. James Allan handed my friend his beer near the top of the show, and his guitar pick at the end. (Yes, she’s extremely cute.)
Allan works hard for the money; he obviously works at his craft and the band put on a great show. Allan has some powerful pipes and dark lyrics which the Manhattan crowd sang back to him word for word. New York hearts Glasvegas and, it seems, vice-versa.
The band had support from high-energy Joplinesque opener Ida Maria. I watched a clip from her set on youtube today and laughed when I heard myself talking at the tail end. The internet is a strange place.
