After almost five years of practically nonstop touring, ska/punk/pop veterans Streetlight Manifesto are finally planning on taking a break, but not before hitting the road ONE last time. Ready to kick off The Last Tour For A While Tour, they will be planning on adding a few surprises for these dates (which the band has not revealed yet, but will not be unlike their recent back-to-back full album shows in NYC). “We’ve dedicated ourselves over the last half decade to touring relentlessly and thereby put our ‘real’ lives on hold,” explains Tomas Kalnoky (vocals, guitar). “That changes after our upcoming Northeast America/Canada tour, which runs from September 17 (this week!) until our hometown show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on October 4th.”
Opening Bands: Outernational, Dub Trio
Date: June 9th 2006
Venue: Irving Plaza, NYC
I’ve only seen Gogol Bordello once before and that was in Philly 2 months ago. I was happy to hear they were going to be playing again, this time in New York City. This was going to be some benefit concert for an organization against police brutality towards Gypsies in the Ukraine. Surprisingly, there wasn’t too much traffic going into Manhattan, so we arrived at Irving Plaza half hour before the doors open. We got into the club and I went upstairs and got my spot along the side of the balcony. I like the spot because it’s close to the stage and you can see the crowd dancing. I just don’t feel like getting all sweaty and standing in crowds anymore. Actually I never liked doing that, even when I was younger. But last time we sat there, we got into an argument with some fat soccer moms at a Saw Doctors show. We were willing to risk yelling at people to back off just to see Gogol Bordello in a prime spot.
