Eagles of Death Metal- Bowery Ballroom NYC 11/17/08 (Concert Review)
Eagles Of Death Metal stormed into NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on Monday ready to party. The fans, many of whom had seen them the night before in Brooklyn were ready to party. So party they did.
The show started strong with The Duke Spirit. The British band was eating up the crowd, and they received a much warmer welcome than many openers do when the crowd is rabid for the headliners.
The Eagles played a similar set to the show they played one night earlier, but the repeat crowd didn’t mind one bit. Most of the audience up front was on a first name basis with Jesse and his face lit up when he saw a familiar crowd and he kissed the hands of a number of young ladies, several of them wearing fake mustaches.
They rocked through the set at breakneck speed, brought Liela Moss from the Duke Spirit out for a song, played a four song encore, and left the crowd wanting more. Perhaps that is why the fans keep coming back every night.
