Yes, I love teen magazines, so how could I pass up the opportunity to go to the ELLE Girl “Music Issue” party at Webster Hall featuring a performance by VHS or Beta? I just couldn’t!
VHS or Beta has been on tour for the last 17 months, and this was their last performance for a while. They played to a crowd of kids with free drinks in their hands, and nothing to loose. There was one dude who even brought his own basketball to the party…for unknown reasons. I also spied Merlin Bronques in a full “Merlin Bronques” outfit–sunglasses, wig, and turtleneck–up front snapping pictures of the band and more importanly, the partygoers.
Although lead singer Craig Pfunder kept insisting that no one at the party knew who they were, nor were they dancing to the music, I spied one dude up in the front who was…how do you say…totally feelin’ the music (below). By the end of the show, the band pulled him and a bunch of other people onto the stage to shake their groove thing during the last song.
