Leopold and His Fiction at The Independent

Wednesday night was a very OCMD satisfying evening of music with a double header of shows – Leopold and His Fiction + Little Joy at The Independent then Band of Skulls at Harlot.  It was so nice to finally see Leopold in a proper venue, with proper sound.  They rocked it! And I’m always mesmerized by drummer Jon Sortland’s ability to play keyboards and drum at the same time.  

I have to say Little Joy wasn’t doing it for me. It felt a little milquetoast in comparison and left early.  And I felt kind of bad for the audience too that they didn’t get their chance to get up close and personal to Fab (Fabrizio Moretti) himself. I mean, he is the marquis member of the band right?  Yet he was in New York recording what I assume is another Strokes album. Did anyone else feel duped by that?
