Though I admit I wasn't surprised that the average age was higher than I care to admit, it was pure, unbridled joy in the audience. And it was clear from the glee on Alison Moyet's face as she danced around belting out some of the best songs of the 80s, that she had missed the thrill of performing for an adoring audience. Get a load of the best songs of the night and feel the dance madness for yourself...

Wish I could catch 'em at DC's 9:30 Club, as that would be the ultimate joint for this kind of show. But who's complaining when we New Yorkers can catch them at Brooklyn's McCarren Park Pool, smack dab in the heart of hipster heaven, Williamsburg.
Here's the deets from their lovely PR peeps:
As with their two previous sets, [the now-legendary "Brainfreeze" (1999) and "Product Placement" (2001)], the pair eschew their own material in favor of an amalgam of music from all eras and styles, providing for amusing and provocative mash-ups; rap mixes with fiddle music, doo-wop with new wave, and every thing in between...all while avoiding the obvious, "been there, heard that" stuff you get from most DJs.
The first time "The Hard Sell" was performed in the United States was in front of 15,000 people at the world famous Hollywood Bowl (2007). As demand for the show has grown, the pair have continuously refined and reworked the song selection, so that aspects of it are different every time. In the words of Shadow himself, "If you happened to catch one of the earlier shows, never fear...you won't be disappointed!" Don't miss these final appearances by two of California's most cutting-edge DJs.The Hard Sell exists as a result of a unique combination of the duo’s shared passions –for records, for playing them to people, for collecting them as objects and understanding their tactile properties as well as loving, appreciating contextualising and recontextualising the sounds they were designed to reproduce.
This is the third part in the trilogy of Cut Chemist & DJ Shadow collaborations and is probably the most ambitious in its execution.

Cold War Kids @ Bowery Ballroom, NY 4/7/07
Per the peeps at FreeNYC:
Unleashing “cave-stomp drums, barroom piano and chiming post-punk guitars,” (Rolling Stone) Cold War Kids eschew preciousness for grit. Live, they’re all smoldering energy and raw power. Joining them are local favorites Elvis Perkins in Dearland with their dream-like folk rock “drenched in equal parts sunshine and cloudy grey skies,” (Drowned in Sound) and the tuneful but hard hitting Sam Champion, “an absolute force of nature.” (Sterogum) All Ages.

New York's new uber-club, Terminal 5, was a far cry from the barely 50-member-strong audiences in the dimly lit clubs of Austin for Explosions in the Sky, as those in the know fondly recall. And a far cry even from the Warsaw, that Williamsburg haven of indie discoveries in waiting. No, New York wasn't offering a kielbasa with a side of spacey guitar freak-outs, this time around.
I'm happy for Explosions in the Sky, with their hard-earned notoriety and well-deserved place in the pantheon of indie rock. You've come a long way, baby.
Give Explosions in the Sky's show tonight a listen and you'll understand why so many made their way to the Westernmost reaches of NY's known universe to hear what would normally be a soundtrack at an NYU smoke-fest. They created atmospheres, vibes and energies. If only I could think of any less bohemian adjectives, I'd certainly use them. But, well, listen and you'll get the idea.

P.S. My dream Central Park Summerstage lineup for summer '08: Devendra Banhart, Grizzly Bear and Explosions in the Sky. Now that would be a night. Explosions in the Sky, with their heady soundscapes and an absolute lack of any kind of vocalization, would be a perfect counterpoint to Grizzly Bear's harmonies and Banhart's freak folk fuzz. And all under a starry night sky. (*sigh*) What do you say, Kara, can you make it
