The Scissor Sisters played their second of 2 sold out shows on March 18, 2010 at New York’s Bowery Ballroom and it was equally as amazing as the first night.  While the set list stayed the same and there were no surprise guests, the crowd went wild as the Sisters performed new tracks and old favorites.  I’ll never understand why they are not selling out stadiums in their native US like they do all over the world, but seeing them at a small venue time and time again makes me wish they played every night.  The energy that Jake Shears and Ana Matronic bring to the show makes it feel like they are performing in an arena, yet the shows were very intimate.  They ran through hits like “I Don’t Feel Like Dancing,” “She’s My Man,” “Tits on the Radio,” “Laura,” “Comfortably Numb,” and of course, “Filthy/Gorgeous.”  They also played nine new songs and all of them are going to be club thumpers.  Their 3rd album is set to be released in July and based on the live renditions of the new tracks, it’s going to be really hot.
