“Rock the House, Not the Neighbors” w/ BOAT

Seattle band BOAT, in New York City for three days, were kind enough to stop by  our apartment studio (not studio apartment) in lovely downtown Brooklyn to inaugurate our new “Rock the House, Not the Neighbors” apartment series. The band, perhaps sated by bagels and Diet Coke, stayed long enough to play seven songs in all. In addition to a handful of songs from last year’s excellent record Setting the Paces — including a live rarity in “Reverie” and a version of “100 Calorie Man” that features half a Guided by Voices cover and a muppet costume – they played a new tune, “Le Grande Opening,” and a cover of the Troggs “With a Girl Like You.”
