For those out there clamoring to know how the The Lucksmiths show went last week at the Knitting Factory, head on over to The Black T-Shirt to read up on it (with pictures! ok, well, a picture).
I also have to give a quick shout out to The Knitting Factory, which has definitely become one of my favorite venues in New York: Small but not cramped, reasonable drink prices, and a balcony near the stage that is open to all but that no one ever seems to use. Brandon and I were ten feet from the stage last week and we were practically by ourselves up there. I saw Jonathan Richman there about 6 months ago and my feelings about the venue were extremely positive then as well.
