Ted Leo & The Pharamacists @ The Hook

It was my first time at this out of the way venue The Hook located in Red hook. Although it took forever to get there as no cabs or livery drivers know how to get there, we finally arived just in time. Openers Duke Spirit cancelled because of Visa problems but I’ll catch them when they open up for Nine Black Alps later in the month. The venue was actually quite nice. Spacious, good acoustics, and cheap beer. If only it was easier to get to.

I’ve seen this band over a dozen of times and they may be coming close to my John Vanderslice outings. Ted Leo is just great, greater live, and each new album is getting better and better. They quickly started their set with all the “big hits” and were non-stop playing every great song they have. They even treated us to a few new songs, which I must say two of them were really good. Excited ot hear the new album (whenever that comes out). The show went on forever making work the next day rough but well worth it.

Cat was there too.
