Words cannot express how much I love the Scissor Sisters.  Their live shows are guaranteed to make you get sweaty, shake your money maker and admire the gorgeousness of Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Baby Daddy and of course, Del Marquis.  On March 17, 2010 at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, the Sisters made their 2010 live debut performing a handful of tracks from their upcoming 3rd album (which will be released in July).  The star-studded crowd featured Alan Cumming, Lou Reed (of the Velvet Underground), Amanda Lepore and Sandra Bernhard, who guested on stage during the song “Tits on the Radio.” If there’s enough interest, I’ll post videos I took of the new tracks.  I captured the first verse and chorus of each song, but the soundsystem at the venue was VERY loud, so the audio might not be so great.  If you are dying to know what the new tracks sounded like, all of them were fast and are sure to be club hits as soon as their new album is unleashed this summer.  In addition to playing hits like “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’,” “Laura,” and their infamous disco cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” the band played new tracks such as “Running Out,” “Night Life,” “Harder,” “Whole New Way,” “Any Which Way,” “Night Work,” “Something Like This,” “Numb” and “Invisible Lights.”  See a LOT more pictures of the band, Sandra Bernhard, Lou Reed, Amanda Lepore and the set list after the jump.
