Peter Bjorn and John make me happy. Especially when they play live. They're just one of
those bands that makes me smile when I hear them, and even moreso when
I see them.
Thus, I was doubly happy and smiling doubly wide on 9/6 at
NY's Roseland Ballroom,
where PBJ carted out all the fan favorites for
a rousing night of indie rock straight from

This was my second opportunity to catch PBJ this year. If only the crowd from Coachella
could have been the crowd at the Roseland.
Though every face featured a goofy grin like
mine, nobody cheered.
What's up with that? It certainly wasn't for lack of energy on the

I'd rather see them at a slightly smaller, more intimate venue like the
Ballroom, Irving Plaza, or (*gasp!*) even Webster Hall, their
performance at Roseland
was spot-on. Their winsome tunes were sweet as
could be (see Ancient Curse and
Young Folks), while the more boisterous of the lot packed all the punch that they did at
their energy-packed set at Coachella.
So even though the crowd annoyed the heck out of
me, it was
nevertheless a fantastic night for the Peter Bjorn and John fans of NY.

I have to figure out where I can get me one of those "PETER BJORN AND
JOHN T-SHIRT" concert tees. Why oh why'd I leave without one???
