Last night was one of the first concerts for The Silver Jews. They don’t tour much, and by much I mean ever. They put on a pretty good show, even if it did get started very late. The opening bands were Ketman from LA (I think so? They play PRETTY DECENT OPENING BAND ROCK) and New Radiant Storm King from Easthampton, MA (They play TIME-WASTING SNORE-CORE). Silver Jews were pretty good as well. The show was well-attended by many scenesters who apparently got the memo of what to wear. Longish spiky hair, glasses, beard and blazer required! And the women there were all simply dragged there by their boyfriends who were Pavement geeks from back in the day, and it was obvious that some of the women had no idea why they were there. Hilarious.
