Village Underground

Exciting find! Someone recently uploaded to YouTube a video of a full concert (41 minutes) that Ben Lee played back in February 2001 at Village Underground in NYC, right by Washington Square Park.

This show is notable because

1. It was a (rare) afternoon show…that happened almost 15 years ago

2. Ben Kweller and Evan Dando were also on the lineup, and

3. I’ve had some of the audio files from this show on my computer for years, so it’s strange to finally see the visuals in conjunction with the audio

Songs include “Nothing Much Happens,” “10 Feet Tall,” “How Can That Be,” and “Unlove Letters.”

Vic and Gab @ Pianos

Vic and Gab Pianos

Vic and Gab were the first band on a great line-up at the Wild Honey Pie show at Pianos last night.

An indie-pop band of two sisters from Milwaukee, Vic and Gab played guitar and bass with 2 other band members — a drummer and a percussionist/Korg player.

They’re a really young band, and it’s exciting to see a band with a lot of potential at the early stages of its career.

They could talk more in between songs so there’s not dead silence, but I was impressed by the electric guitar playing and the intricate drum beats.

“Anything For You” is their catchiest song — the second vocals that come in at the end (“I’ll try, for you”) are perfect:
