And there’s footage to prove it. unARTigNYC have the weirdly pristine video and audio to new jam “Where Was My Brain,” part of a set that started after the worst of the rain, around 7:50pm, and went on for around an hour and a half. Leo’s Twitter tells the tale, as always, moving from excitement (WE’RE GONNA TRY AND DO A REALLY SHORT SET NOW!!) to anxiety (Well, that happened…), rage (Jeez – I love Brooklyn Vegan, but can a guy who’s just trying to play a goddamned show in spite of the weather get a friggin’ break?), and, finally, acceptance (…but we all made the best of it, right? Thanks again for braving it with us!). Also, apparently, a Twins reference was made. Nothing stops Ted Leo.
