Above the Auto Parts Store
Saturday, October 17
Last week, No Age played four New York shows in four entirely different settings: West Village club (le) poisson rouge, MoMA’s Spike Jonze Retrospective, the New Museum for director Jean-Jacques Annaud’s The Bear, and a Todd P show held Above the Auto Parts Store in Bushwick. The latter is where the band still feels most comfortable, as Randy Randall explained to us last week: “We’ve always played places like Death By Audio, a venue with totally fun energy in the room. But sometimes, the rooms are too small and not everyone can get in. So we have to play (le) Poisson Rouge, a place with a bar, where your feet won’t get stepped on, and money is paid to security guards and whatnot. That’s more strange to us.” Rebecca Smeyne most definitely got her feet stepped on photographing the “fun energy” at Saturday’s all-ages show. Her shots are below.
