Open Bar: Hooray For Earth

July 27, 2011


When we asked Hooray For Earth's lead singer Noel Heroux where he wanted to play, given the entire circumference of Heathers Bar, he responded with, "well, I usually play on the floor." So that's what he did, despite whatever New York bar cooties had to be crawling around down there. Missing one semi-important accessory—a mic stand—Heroux improvised with a chair. He played, "True Loves" only once, using temperamental pedals. The result sounds a lot like the mastered track, but feels more like an intimate rehearsal.
