Pulp.  Radio City Music Hall.  April 11, 2012.  Epic!  Wow!  I haven’t had this much fun at a show in a long time.  It’s been 14 years since British rockers Pulp have played in New York and it’s been worth the wait.  Playing their second of 2 sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall, the 2 hour set was a non-stop party of great songs, lights, rock and roll, hilarious anecdotes from lead singer Jarvis Cocker, crowd sing-a-longs and fun times!

Pulp!

The show began just before 9 PM with laser projected statements not unlike those found in the liner notes of Pulp albums.  Questions like “Are you ready?”  “Are you sure?” and “Do You Remember The First Time?” flashed across Radio City Music Hall and then the band launched into “Do You Remember The First Time?”  What a great way to open the show!  Between every single song, lead singer Jarvis Cocker told funny anecdotes about songs (including a chat about astrology – he’s a fellow Virgo as well), and called our crowd “the hardcore fans” as this was initially the first Pulp show in New York, but a second night was added due to ticket demand.  That show ended up becoming the first night due to scheduling issues with the venue.

During tracks like the ode-to -taking-drugs-at-a-festival song “Sorted For E’s and Wizz,” a very trippy laser light show was being projected throughout Radio City Music Hall and I think the laser lights could have been seen from the bathrooms at Radio City!  The band utilized great lighting throughout the show from neon letters that spelled out “P-U-L-P” (see photo above), had screens behind the band that showed all kinds of cool and colorful visuals and during the song “I Spy,” Jarvis Cocker had some sort of device that he shined at the audience and it projected his camera onto the overhead screens.

I was so excited to see that Pulp, featuring Jarvis Cocker (as pictured above) will be reuniting in 2011 for a series of festival gigs in Europe.  This will mark the first time the band has played together since 2002!  As of now, the band is only scheduled for two shows, but I am sure more will pop up in the not too distant future.  Stay on top of it at Pulp’s official website.  Do you remember the first time you heard Pulp?  I do.  It was years after the fact and I was at a video party that featured the video to “This Is Hardcore.”  Needless to say, I’ve since caught up on what I missed out on and I am thankful for all the great music.

Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has announced a handful of tour dates in support of his new album “Further Complications.”  If you’ve never seen Jarvis live, here’s what you can expect:  Hilarious banter in between every song that ranges from political rants to stories about his unsuccesful attempts to get laid. Don’t expect him to relive the past with old Pulp songs, but it’s ok.  You’ll be entertained. Tour dates and more pictures after the jump.
