Cake Eating Crowds

In Music on October 9, 2008 at 10:44 am

Small plastic animals were being thrown into the crowd from a paper bag held by a scruffy looking man wearing a top hat.  It was during the set up of the upcoming band, so I, along with friends, assumed he was a quirky part of the crew to keep the crowd alive and entertained.  As time went on and Les Savy Fav began to play I was still convinced this man was not a member of a band, but rather slightly disturbed.  Tim Harrington just might still be slightly insane, but along with that insanity comes a brilliant stage performer who puts on one of the weirdest, intriguing shows you could ever set your eyes upon.

Mr. Harrington has the element of surprise in his favor.  One minute he is feeding cake to the crowd, the next he is climbing up the rafters of the stage in a skin tight belly shirt, and for the grande finale he sports a seemingly clear body suit, that was painted with human organs in their perspective places on Tim Harrington’s body.

Les Savy Fav is a little bit of rock and a little bit of roll, definitely one of those bands you want to listen to with the volume turned up.  Keep an eye out for their new album INCHES; it is supposedly the album they have been writing since the band’s inception in 1995.  Les Savy Fav will be playing this sunday, 10/12/08, at The Music Hall of Williamsburg.  I highly suggest going to this show, the last thing you will be is bored.
