The Psychedelic Furs makes nostalgia look new again

The Psychedelic Furs makes nostalgia look new again

The Butler brothers have returned to selling out venues everywhere as the 80’s icon rockers The Psychedelic Furs verified their longevity as one of the most unlikely enduring chameleon success stories of rock. It really is stunning that a band that hasn’t released an original album since 1991 can still pack the concert spots with die-hard fans like these guys do, but they did just that as they passed through NYC last week, selling out two of the nicest mid-sized venues in town, the Highline in Manhattan and then the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, which is where I caught up with them.

Spacing out with Eastern Hollows at Cameo

Spacing out with Eastern Hollows at Cameo

This was to be a night of a trio of my favorite local bands at the strange backroom venue behind a crammed bar/restaurant in Williamsburg’s always-trendy N. 6th called Cameo Gallery. Once in the back room it is rather spacious, with it’s now-iconic artsy light-fixture chandelier glowing like a strange alien looming over these awesome bands as they jammed away.
