We spent two nights in a row seeing Ladyhawk last weekend (where's the graph Kuo?). They were good at Mercury Lounge and awesome at Union Hall. The hugest bummer about Ladyhawk is when you go to see them and there aren't as many people there as you'd imagined and everyone walks around saying Why aren't there more people here? And then they get on stage and totally shred, and you feel worse because so many people are missing out. But the best thing about Ladyhawk is that, when they are on, they can make brothers and sisters out of strangers. In fact, by the end of the extra-long set of Ladyhawk classics and even a couple new songs, we found ourselves in a weird group bro-down with the rest of the audience and then we bought a t-shirt and some Hawk shot glasses. Check out a video by Joe Angerone of their most recent single, "I Don't Always Know What You're Saying" from their Union Hall performance above.
