How long until instant pirate live streams of every sold out show in New York is the norm? Two years? A year? That's gotta be the next step, right?
And these videos are getting much better. A couple examples to examine...
"Valentine" (new song, @ Music Hall of Williamsburg)
Shaky, sure, but the video quality on this performance of "Valentine," from the forthcoming Idler Wheel, etc. is actually kind of beautiful and interesting.
"Across the Universe" (Beatles cover, @ Bowery Ballroom)
This one, from the Bowery, lacks the candlelit artiness of the previous clip and there's some handheld device shakiness, but in terms of picture and sound, how much better can you get? So much better, I'm sure. Looking back in even 5 years, these will seem crazy quaint.
Can someone live-stream a walk through McCarren for me? THANKS. I'm not getting dressed.
