Jake Shears and Ana Matronic of Scissor Sisters
New York loves Scissor Sisters so much that the audience didn’t get enough on the first night, so the Sisters flipped it over and grilled it up again! They played the second of two shows (the final US date on their 2012 Summer tour) at Terminal 5 in Manhattan on July 7, 2012. If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing Scissor Sisters, their show, as Ana Matronic said “will fuck you – hard! But [you’ll] be respected in the morning.” Truer words have never been spoken. The Sisters give 150% at every show and whether you feel like dancin’ or not, you will be on your feet and shakin’ your moneymaker for the entire show. Die-hards including myself braved hours of 100 degree weather to be in the front row to catch Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Del Marquis and Baby Daddy let us have it – in the best possible way and they did not disappoint! If you don’t have their latest album “Magic Hour,” get it get it and before you know it, you’ll be having a kiki!
Enjoy some pictures from a 3,000 person kiki featuring Scissor Sisters, DJ Sammy Jo (who spun tunes in between sets) and the fabulous opener, Rye Rye.

Jack Hues of Wang Chung and G
Moments after 80s gods Wang Chung finished a rockin’ set at BB King’s in New York on July 7, 2010, I met the band! Jack Hues and Nick Feldman were both extremely nice as you can see from the photos above and below. They’ve got a new double EP called “Abducted by the 80s” which features new tracks as well as some rearranged versions of their classics. Check out their official website for more details. Coming soon, videos of “To Live and Die In LA (Acoustic),” “Everybody Have Fun Tonight,” and “Dance Hall Days.” Stay tuned. Thanks again to Wang Chung for being totally nice and for putting on a great show!

Pete Byrne of Naked Eyes and G
I was really excited to see Naked Eyes perform live as they’ve had songs such as “(What) In The Name of Love,” “Promises, Promises,” and “Always Something There To Remind Me,” which sound as fresh to me today as they did 25 years ago. Naked Eyes and Wang Chung played a double bill of 1980s greatness at BB King’s in New York on July 7, 2010 and it was! Right as I entered the venue, Pete Byrne was walking upstairs to get better cell phone reception. I asked for a photo and as you can see above, he was glad to oblige. He also autographed a Naked Eyes CD for me and he was very nice! Thanks so much Pete! Naked Eyes have a new CD coming out soon called “Picadilly,” and I am excited for its release. Videos of “Always Something There To Remind Me,” and “Promises, Promises,” – acoustic – are coming soon. Stay tuned!
