11/25/05 The Meters @ Nokia Theater, New York, NY
The Meters are one of the funkiest bands in the history of music straight out of New Orleans. So when they reunited their original members, I knew I had to go check them out.
This was my first of many times at the brand new Nokia Theatre in the heart of Times Square. It is something of a shrine to the cell phones, but it is sleek and hi-tech and shiny and a wonderful place to see live music once you get past the inherently corporate nature of it all. The sound and sight lines are great, and there are stadium seats in the back for when you need to take a breather.
The show was a predictably funking good time.
