Masquerade

Friday night LK and I dressed up in costume to go to Hammerstein Ballroom to see Matt & Kim and Weezer. I was a very last minute Princess Mononoke, and LK was a ringmaster (everyone thought she was Lady GaGa though).
Matt and Kim
Weezer
Weezer + Leighton Meester
Quite possibly the greatest show I have ever been to. Matt & Kim are awesome, she might have more energy and moves than Karen O. They annoy me after more than one song if I listen to their recordings, but while they were performing live I could have listened and danced all night long. When Weezer came out dressed as bugs playing Hashpipe I grabbed LK's hand and dragged her forward until we were only feet away from the stage. There's something so organic about a crowd of fans singing along, dancing with strangers, and it feels so good. Their cover of MGMT's "Kids" leading right into "Poker Face" by Lady GaGa had everyone looking to each other asking "What are they doing, and why is it so good?" I couldn't stop moving. It was the most fun I've had in ages.
When we walked out onto the street it was buzzing with Halloween revelers and more electricity than Manhattan uses in a night. We went to Katwalk on 35th for a few more drinks before heading home on the late train.
Goodnight!
