Man Man @ House of Vans

I’m not a million percent thrilled about this show because every time I see them lately it gets worse. Apparently they have an even newer album than Rabbit Habits called ‘Life Fantastic’ and if it’s anything like Rabbit Habits I’m sure to be disappointed. However. I will admit I got the old familiar rush of excitement when I saw they had a show today. Free, even! So what’s the harm, really? It’s at the House of Vans in Greenpoint and it looks like the harm is really just getting deluged with product placement and sponsors. It’s also first come, first serve; doors open at 7pm but line-up starts at 5pm, so show up fashionably late at your own risk, I suppose. RSVP required for entry, no outside food/drink, etc. Glass Candy and Crystal Antlers are also playing the one tonight.
This is apparently the fourth of these gatherings; Tokyo Police Club, Againt Me!, Big Freedia/Japanther and Team Robespierre are set to play at the next one on August 18th and the last one is August 25th with Converge, All Pigs Must Die and (wait for it) SPECIAL GUEST.
