The Misanthrope played a double set tonight at Fontana's, a new club on Eldridge between Broome and Grand. It was nice to play at a club where the people who work there were actually friendly and nice. All in all, it turned out to be a good night. I hope Fontana's turns into a great club, at least so I can say that I was in the first two bands ever to play there.
First up was the Via Skyway set with George, Chrispy, Rob Machold and MikeDot. As usual, Rob shepherded us through and kept the vibe nice and quiet. Chrispy wins the purple heart for singing the most heartbreaking song in the set, "River," without aid of a monitor.
The Microdot set felt great. It felt like Joe, Mike and I clicked live for the first time (out of three shows). I was having a great time, even if I am now even more deaf.
Next show is January 3rd at Pianos.
