Birdcall


Last night found us - and a pretty decent chunk of the rest of New York - at Town Hall for the Antony and the Johnsons performance.




Coco Rosie did their thing (sans the face paint) to start it off: putting beatboxing over a harp, chimes over a drum machine, and that musical toy that’s still in our parents’ garage over that other musical toy that we never got for Christmas.

Antony’s set was a retrospective ranging from songs off his first EP The Lake to "Fistful Of Love" and other cuts off of I Am A Bird Now - but the highlight was definitely the grip of covers Antony and Co. kept springing on us. We're talking Leonard Cohen's “The Guests”, some Nico and some Moondog, and the encore tear-fest that was Lou Reed’s “Candy Says.” Catharsis!
