Speaking of Those Old School Game Boys: Fuck Buttons at McCarren Pool

Fuck Buttons at McCarren Pool this Sunday (picture courtesy of random flickr person ). Yes, that is a Gameboy he’s playing.

And also at McCarren, oh you Liars! What a homecoming back to Brooklyn! You have transcended your past just like I’ve grown out of those homemade tee-shirt dresses I used to wear. Or, as Wikipedia scribbles, “Although initially lumped into the New York post-punk revival scene of the early 21st century, they have come to be categorized by their dramatic stylistic shifts between albums, while retaining a consistent interest in rhythm and sound texture.”

Well then.

Meanwhile 2 questions came to mind during the Liars’ labor-intense set:

But has anybody noticed that the “kids” in Williamsburg look like Spacoli in Fast Times? Is WIlliamsburg the new LA?

Second Question–is Angus Andrews (of the Liars) the new Nick Cave? Or are all Australian noise-rock musicians just gangly and sexy/creepy?

Ok, that’s actually three questions, but I’m not a good consolidator.
