Menomena w/ Illinois @ Webster Hall, November 10th, 2007

Phew! This show was a while ago.. I guess I'm just super lazy/busy ;) Either way, Menomena put out one of my favorite albums of last year, and their live show is just as good. This particular show wasn't too packed though, because they played for free at the seaport a couple of months ago (see past post) and I think everyone needed a menomatic-breather. Their drummer has some serious skills, and there was one song where he kept up this Nirvana-esque beat for what seemed like 9 minutes. Crazy stamina!

Openers Illinois have some great catchy songs, but this might've been too big of a venue for them. And you could tell that they didn't travel with a sound-man, as their set didn't sound nearly as huge as Menomena's.
