No, I didn’t have an encounter with actual wild beasts, though that might also make quite a remarkable story. I met the UK band Wild Beasts! After playing a rockin’ set at the Highline Ballroom in New York on August 11, 2010, I chatted with the band. They were all extremely nice and even apologized for not coming out sooner to come chat with me. No worries guys! Wild Beasts are nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize for their awesome album “Two Dancers,” and I know I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for a victory!
When I spoke with Ben Little, I noticed that he wasn’t wearing any shoes. He quickly explained that he’d taken off his shoes prior to the show and set them on the edge of the stage. Someone stole them! Unbelievable. Worse yet, the band had to catch a 6:30 am flight so it is unclear whether or not he’ll be able to grab a pair in time for his flight. The good news is, he’ll get through security a little quicker by not having to take off his shoes at the checkpoint. If you have any news on the whereabouts of Ben Little’s shoes, please contact us!
Thanks again guys for rockin’ and for being so cool!
