I was lucky enough to see Dan Black last month performing at the Mercury Lounge (review of that show can be read here).  At the time, I was largely unfamiliar with his music.  His performance won me over in a big way and in the last month, I have listened to his debut album “((Un))” a lot.  Naturally I was really excited to see him performing on March 24, 2010 in the legendary Irving Plaza aka the Fillmore East as part of New York radio station 101.9 WRXP’s 2nd anniversary concert.  He opened for The Strokes front man Julian Casablancas (but there’ll be more on that part of the show coming up).  Before the crowd rocked out with Casablancas, Dan Black funked up the room in the best way possible with his delicious beats, his supercuteness and his catchy songs.  He was even more energetic at this show – dancing all over the stage and still was able to hit the high notes in his songs.  The set list was pretty close to what I saw about a month ago, but the songs were in a different order.  He played all my favorites off the album,  including “Pump my Pumps,” “I Love Life,” “U and Me,” his hit “Symphonies,” (this time around it was free of his interpretation of Notorious BIGs “Hypnotize”), and his cover of “Pass That Dutch” (which is criminally left off his album).  I am really liking “((Un))” a lot, so if you need something to put a little groove in your step, you might want to give this record a spin. Based on his stage performance and the catchiness of his songs, I think it’s only a matter of time before he’s a superstar.  Before the gig, I had a brief encounter with the man in white and the last name Black and I’ll be posting that soon.  So stay tuned.
