Electric Six – New York – The Bowery Ballroom – September 29th, 2013


Very tired (still jetlagged?), watched almost the whole of the first band Les Sans Culottes, had a beer and then went out to a nearby diner to have some food. helped a lot.

I really liked the sound of the band live, knew only 2 songs before. Singer was being funny, referred to Breaking Bad finale being on at the same time (he had no idea what it was about)
