So when I’m on vacation, the last thing I want to do is go do work. Apparently Luke Pritchard of the Kooks does not have the same work ethic as I do, because this past Sunday he performed an semi-impromptu acoustic show at Soundfix in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, despite the fact that he’s in town “on holiday”.
The set was slightly delayed by the fact that his cab driver dropped him off on the wrong street (presumably Bedford and South 11th instead of NORTH 11th), forcing him to hoof it to the record shop. That would have been a great sight to see–Luke Pritchard strolling down Bedford, guitar in hand, appropriately dressed for Williamsburg in a gray v-neck American Apparel shirt, skin-tight black jeans and boots, causing double-takes by passers-by.
When he did arrive, he treated the small crowd to a short set of Kooks favorites like “Ooh La”, “Naive”, and a “Seaside”/”See the World” medley as well as a great cover version of Bob Dylan’s “Tangled Up in Blue” before strolling out as casually as he came in.
