NY09: Akron/Family and Real American Burgers

Posted by Philip on August 10th, 2009 — 4:47am

We arrived at Other Music at 6.25pm only to be greeted by a queue of NYC hipsters that extended round the corner of the block. It was doors 7pm and space was minimal in the tiny record store. We were worried that we wouldn’t get in. After all, we came all the way from Ireland.

Happily, eveyone who queued were somehow squeezed into the tiny venue and Akron/Family proceeded with an incredible hour and a half long set, almost as good as when I saw them in Glasgow (almost becuase they didn’t play Ed Is A Portal this time round).

By the time the gig had finished, none of us had had any real food all day and we were just about ready to collapse with hunger. There was only one way to sort that out…

I literally (literally literally) had a jaw cramp when I attempted to take a bite out of my burger. There is in fact a video of this (much to the amusement of Burr) and in fact at least several awesome movies we took today but unfortunately are just too big to upload with this borrowed wireless internet. I’ll leave you with one little clip, which, I must warn you in advance, is either really amazing or really, really gross depending on what kind of person you are…

    Aw man, that’s in your arteries now! Glad to see the NYC trip is already being dominated by food. I can’t wait to see the video of Philip getting lock jaw.
