The Aussie BBQ, Sans BBQ, Hit NYC on Sunday, 03.13.11

post image

Since we arrived to find a half-empty Bowery Ballroom with its Oz crowd chilling sit-in style during one of the acoustic acts that happened just after Grand Atlantic opened the day’s events, my trusty photographer and I decided to skip out for a quick mimosa at a French café across Bowery. We reentered upon an energizing set from the dapper Drawn from Bees already in full sway…

The Berg Sans Nipple – ‘Build With Erosion’

post image

It would be hard enough to argue the artistic originality of a band whose curious name was created as the duo, (one French, one Nebraskan), were drinking wine in a French courtyard and came upon an anagram that ties them and their sonic idiosyncracies together to a T.

Also, cameos from Lady Bree, Micki Pellarano and not one but two Aubrey Plaza’s!
