Trail Of Dead, The Coathangers & Hussle Club – 11.16.12

When I was in Chicago this summer I met this awesome band called The Coathangers. They are a really good band made up entirely of hot girls who also happen to be really good. I almost never buy music anymore and a couple days after I met them I went out and ordred two of their records. When I saw they were on tour I wrote down November 16th on my calendar. Yesterday was the 16th and I googled where they were playing and I saw that they were at Irving Plaza and they happened to be playing with both …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and my good friends Hussle Club. I was psyched. I hit up the Village Voice and they got me a photo pass and it was on.

Hussle Club opened and they were rad as always. Seeing them in a place like Irving Plaza with great sound was awesome. They have a new 7″ single out and they gave me a new shirt. Score. Next up was the Coathangers. I was psyched to see them and they all remembered me and let me lurk about in their dressing room taking photos which was cool. They were awesome live even though for whatever reason they played in almost total darkness. I know Hussle Club asked Irving Plaza to keep the lights low for them but it didn’t make much senese for an up tempo rock band full of hot ladies. I got some okay shots anyway.

Finally …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead headlined and the packed crowd was psyched. I know one of the guys, Jason Reece, because he is an owner of Beauty Bar Austin when he is not being a rock star. He is a great dude and always went out of his way to make sure I had a good time in Austin so I was really excited to check out their band. I knew people loved them but I didn’t actually know what they sounded like until last night. They were great and I was glad I finally got to see them.

The whole show was a great time and all of the bands killed it so you can’t ask for much more. Unfortunately I had to deal with something so I had to leave about 30 minutes into Trail of Dead’s set. Still it was well worth the trip into the city and the Village Voice is playing me for it so everything came up Igor. Good times.
