CMJ: Charles Hamilton and Little Boots at Fader Fort

by

Charles Hamilton+Little Boots
Fader Fort
October 25

ACTUAL TRANSCRIPTION OF LAST NIGHT’S CHARLES HAMILTON SHOW, PT. I:

“Anybody listen to Modest Mouse?”

“[Muffled, indistinct cheers]”

“Alright!”

“…”

ACTUAL TRANSCRIPTION OF LAST NIGHT’S CHARLES HAMILTON SHOW, PT. II:

“What about SoHo? Anybody actually from SoHo?”

“[Muffled, indistinct cheers]”

“That’s awesome.”

Charles Hamilton, now turning random, semi-exclusive venues into your man’s basement!

Meanwhile, tiny extremely small Little Boots makes a 16oz can of Sparks look like something Ryan Howard would hit home runs with. “This is Little Boots,” she says. “Come see me on the Internet, where I’ve been spending all my life.” Fair enough—she and Charles Hamilton probably have a lot to talk about.

This London-based aspiring disco-pop star makes a certain kind of sense playing a Fader-sponsored venue: The between-sets DJs play Will Smith’s “Ring My Bell”; Boots plays Anita Ward’s. The house plays “Cherchez La Ghost”; she plays “Cherchez La Femme.”

Coming up next: That Swedish dude Dungen. Goodnight, CMJ!
