it was just as i expected. jim was drumming instead of bassing and thurston was bassing. jim and thurston had serious faces on the whole time and lydia was a the best bitch ever. they didnt play for too long, i was just at the 8:00 one. thurston and jim fucked up trying to start a song a few times and lydia was threatingly looking at them and shit it was mad funny. the last song was orphans and lydia was all, this is the last one and dont fucking expect an encore, and at the end of the song she was all, fuck you all, less is more. her banter was really the best part of the show, methinks.

Kudos to Thurston for pushing this stuff, but does he always have to get so fucking involved? I'm sure they could've found someone else to play bass to a few Teenage Jesus songs. I mean we're not exactly talking P-Funk Allstars here.

Thanks for the report wilffiv... I would have loved to have been there. Sounds like Lydia was on form.

it was an awesome night. really, ran smoothly, both shows were sold out, the gallery event (running till july 2nd, if you live in nyc you should really
catch it - KS Gallery) - was incredible - loads of interesting flyers, artwork
and photos.

the performances were short, but great. Informaiton hadn't played since 1981 and came off quite tight, kinda folky-prog-punk w/ a can/steel-drum
as well.

Glenn Branca, Phillip Glass, Lee & Kim Gordon, Martin Rev and inumeral other artists from that era were in the club - no sign of David Bowie though - I was banking on that!!

I was there for both shows/sets - they were similar sets - the late show was a bit more feisty though. Lydia harassed Thurston equally for both
performances and briefly poked fun at Sonic Youth's members. It was
pretty memorable. I wan running around a lot so I was in front of the stage
the whole time, but I watched both sets from the side of the backstage and
it was incredible. Especially since it probably will never happen again!!!

Yep,the most beautiful chris habib was front row center taping that shit in HD. Only saw the first set but was impressed by how tight they were. A friend likened Lydia's schtick to Don Rickles which caused me to have a bit of an ah hah moment. It was an amazing night on both sides of the street.

Chris is indeed sweet but he tends to keep his tapes for his own personal use.

I've been to all of Lydia's shows in Holland in the last few years, and have never seen her play the guitar. Cool.

yeah you sure like hair. no worries though, there's nothing wrong with caring a lot about hair.
