Nick is Sex on Wheels


photo by mk


Or so someone shouted out of the crowd at the Islands show last night at Knitting Factory. I must admit that Nick is a brooding hottie with some of the greatest hair I have ever seen on a guy but I’m not sure if that translates into sex on wheels.
Actually, the whole band was rather adorable in their all white jumpsuit-y outfits. They were all wearing different things (in white) that suited their particular styles which looked awesome on stage as a whole.
Islands consisted of the drummer, French bass player, 2 Asian string/recorder/guitar/keyboard players, the singer/guitarist/keyboard player (Nick), a bass (?) saxophone player and another guitarist/back-up singer. So if you know anything about the stage at the Knitting Factory, you’ll know that it was very crowded!
The crowd at the show was pretty amusing. Mina & I pushed out way up to the middle of the stage about 2 heads back so she could snap up some photos for looserecord.com and the guy behind us was completely drunk and hysterical. He informed us that we could get high off of dust-off (y’know that stuff that cleans your keyboard) and almost lit my hair on fire. good times.
Islands were fantastic. Their quirky, hipster, ho-down songs were great fun to bop to. Maybe next time we’ll bring Nick home to 392.
