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.
The Scissor Sisters know how to throw a dance party! On February 4, 2011, Jake Shears and Ana Matronic, two of our beloved Scissor Sisters, were doing a very rare DJ set at the Museum of Natural History in New York. It was a super fun night watching Jake and Ana shake their groove things on stage while the entire museum danced our asses off. Every song they played was thumping and it was definitely a great way to see my friend BB3 usher in his birthday (and have a very happy birthday BB3)! One of the songs we were treated to was a mashup of the Scissor Sisters’ “Invisible Light” mashed up with Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.” The video you are about to see is admittedly not the greatest, but where else are you going to hear this great remix? The answer of course is According2g.com. Check in daily for the very best of the music and art scene in New York!
On stage: Jake Shears, Ana Matronic and DJ Sammy Jo. Get ready to throw yourself a silent rave!

Casey Spooner, half of the electronic duo Fischerspooner, received a call from Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters a few days ago. Jake asked if Casey would like to open for the band on their North American Tour. Casey was up to the challenge even though he had no rehearsal time. He had just finished recording a batch of songs for an upcoming solo CD called “Adult Contemporary” and decided to treat these shows as a rehearsal. Well, he could have fooled the sold out crowd at New York’s Terminal 5 on August 24, 2010. His songs were great and they sounded well polished. Hitting the stage at 8 pm, he performed in front of a white sheer curtain with a spotlight on him and he wore a suit that made him look extra gorgeous. Some of the songs he sang included “Cinnamon Toast,” where he professed that everything is ok as long as he has it. He also sang a track called “RSVP,” that basically dealt with the fact that he wants to be included on every guest list – just in case – but he’d prefer to stay in, with his cats, eating Thai food and watching “True Blood.” Sometimes, you can’t argue with that logic. He also sang a song that Jake Shears will be singing on for the studio version, but we were treated to Casey’s solo version tonight. I met Casey prior to the show and he was extremely nice. More on my encounter with Casey Spooner coming soon. His solo album should be released in the fall and based on the live renditions, it’s going to be great!
"How much do I love According2g? This much!"
Before and after Casey Spooner rocked the crowd, we were treated to DJ sets by the one and only Sammy Jo.
