Junior Boys make synth magic at First Ave
He may not be on the cover of GQ or get a hot hipster's second glance, but when Greenspan opens his mouth, cold, electric sex ejaculates all over the speakers. Totally dreamy, I was curiously attracted to the music nerd. His other half, Matt Didemus, was a little too stoic for my taste, but his music engineering sounded completely flawless and pictureesque.
The front row of adoring fans were decorated with black x's and the drunk girls behind them danced so hard that their beer bottles slipped right out of their hands and shattered straight into my tights. Pleasant. The Junior Boys soothed away my bleeding sorrows with songs from their 2006 release So This is Goodbye, including "Equalizer," "Double Shadow," and a personal favorite, "In the Morning."
These are Didemus' shoes. I thought they were cute; tapping along to the beats as he busily walked back and forth, keeping tab on beats and those unforgettable Junior Boys' details.
