Owen Notes: Goodbye Blue Monday
Saturday night's show at Goodbye Blue Monday (1087 Broadway in Bushwick) was definitely the loudest and the most rocking one I have seen at that venue. Usually the small coffee shop/thrift store/venue features more experimental, ambient or folky music, but their sound held up with the change of gears, and the ambience went well with power pop of the Lame Drivers, a Brooklyn-based band made of recent Brown University alums on their self-made label, Less Cock, More Rock. The band and venue seemed to agree with each other, and both feature many home made products. Goodbye Blue Monday has Lame Driver's tape, "Let Them Eat Tape," plus all of its furniture, mugs and art is for sale.
