The New Deal is one of my all time favorite bands. Every time I see them, it's just a non-stop dance party. This was also my first time at Bowery Ballroom, consistently ranked one of the top music venues in NYC by those who rank such things. I don't think I've actually gone to the Bowery for any reason other than a New Deal show.
I had already played their self-titled release into the ground and this was their release tour for Gone Gone Gone which was even better.
They always seem to step it up in NYC and at the Bowery especially. This night was no different. They even had a sexy vocalist from the album come out to sing a song or two.
I'm still hooked on these guys.
I don't think I made it in time for Brothers Past, marking the beginning of a long string of near misses with that particular band.
