In April of this year some friends and I went to see The Walkmen at The Bell House. This was kind of a small venue and sort of a big deal because we’re all huge fans and we got to see the band in their old stomping grounds. In anticipation of their upcoming new album (9/14/10) they played a few small shows here and there, playing alot of the new stuff and alot of the old stuff we all know and love. The Walkmen have been everywhere lately, including Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I was lucky enough to win tix for the band bench and got to see them perform from the stage. Check us out here. Thats me, upper right with the white T-shirt and my buddy Andy next to me.
The Bell House is a pretty sweet little venue, despite being kind of out of my way. The cocktails are good and its a good looking space. Andy did me the favor of capturing this bathroom graffiti . Octogenarian humor with attention to detail. Steely Dan would certainly approve.
Do yourself a favor and check out When Did I Download This? where all The Walkmen albums are being discussed, including the upcoming album, Lisbon. Bookmark it and come back.
