On April 3, 2010, Irish rockers Ash played a really intimate show at Santos Party House in New York. Lead singer Tim Wheeler announced that this was the first show they’ve played in New York in over two years and the sold out crowd was loving every second of it. The band took us through hits such as “Shining Light” and “A Life Less Ordinary” to new tracks like “Arcadia” and “The Dead Disciples.” Ash are currently doing a really cool project called “Singles A-Z” where every two weeks, they are releasing a new song both in electronic format and as a vinyl single. As if the show wasn’t rockin’ enough, Russell Lissack from Bloc Party joined the band for his first performance with the band. He’ll also be accompanying them on their upcoming UK tour. I have to admit, I knew very little about the band prior to attending the show and like all great rock stars, they did their job by turning me into a fan long before the night was over.
