On July 17, 2010, I got a triple dose of New York rockers We Are Scientists.  First, they performed a very intimate and acoustic 4 song set at Sound Fix in Brooklyn.  I met the band at Sound Fix and they were all extremely nice.  More on that coming soon – stay tuned.  Hours later, We Are Scientists played a sold out show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.  Going into Sound Fix was the first time I’ve been at a proper CD store in a really long time and it felt wonderful to be in a room full of music (that was not my living room).  I took videos of 3 out of the 4 song performance at Sound Fix and I’ll post those videos here in the not too distant future.  The band joked in between songs, and I’ve heard from some of their fans that their comedic interludes define their live performances.  At Sound Fix, guitarist Chris Cain announced that if they won us over during their acoustic set, they’d be playing a full blown show just hours away down the street if we were interested.  It turns out that the crowd was interested as I saw a lot of the same people at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (which is about 6 blocks away from Sound Fix).

At the main show, we were treated to opening sets by the female rockers Bad Girlfriend, the electric Lightspeed Champion and then, of course, the main attraction – We Are Scientists.  More on the opening acts coming soon!  (I am only one person with tons of adventures, so your patience is appreciated).  Once again, they rocked the crowd with songs from their latest album “Barbara,” as well as fan favorites from their past 3 albums.  Highlights for me were “Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt,” “Nice Guys,” and “Chick Lit.”  I enjoyed watching the crowd react to each song as the opening bars of each song made the audience erupt with applause. Lead singer Keith Murray sang upside down at one point and it was pretty incredible.  You can see a picture of that moment after the jump as well as the set list.
