I cannot say how good this news is, and whoever organised it, deserves a world of credit. Les Savy Fav are pretty average musically, but Tim Harrington is who you are really going to see. Their set in All Tomorrow’s Parties two years ago is the stuff of legends, where he (in no particular order) dressed as the pink panther, talked members of the crowd through their troubles in an informal counselling session, and ended the night with half the crowd following him down to the car park!
They play the button factory on NYE 2010, which may be the best news of the year. I hope I can afford it after this budget!
See his magic carpet ride below!
Here his is kissing people and in a bin, god he’s just so good to watch!
