On Friday I went to the “Not So Silent Night” at Fat Baby where I happened to catch The Big Sleep. In the middle of their set (which consisted of loud, deconstructed rock–with little in the way of lyrics, but those who like long rock/metal jams will be appreciative of their sound.) I saw a fireman in full gear push by me and go through a door by the left side of the stage…which I thought was peculiar. When I turned around after watching the band, the once totally packed place was once again breathable…but no fault of the band–appears as though the NYPD raided the venue and people either got kicked out or left of their own volition. Sadly lots of folks were turned away at the door and didn’t get a chance to take part of the event.
Oh, and speaking of the “Not So Silent Night,” Levy also played. They have a fairly steamy video for “On the Dancefloor” depicting to naked folks videotaping their sexcapades at the Hotel on Rivington. Although all the naughty bits of the man and woman are blacked out, I still would advise not playing this video at work…unless your boss is ok with you watching someone getting a bj on film. I swear to god, it’s like watching 9 Songs meets One Night In Paris all over again. Link from Curbed.
