Another Smash Blowoff

Blowoff was a smash, as always: great tunes, cool video effects, hot banners, and packed with friendly faces. Two highlights: Bob Mould spinning a great reworking of Bronksi Beat’s Smalltown Boy and Why, during which a hot thing named Jocelyn (pictured below) blew us away singing along so amazingly on the dance floor that my goosebumps had goosebumps. Somebody needs to record that chick, pronto. Later Rich Morel tore the roof off with Bad Cabbage’s Your Rude [sic], which seems like a bottom’s anthem, what with the lyric “I just wanna get fucked by you, but you just wanna get fucked.” Hilarious. (The linked video isn’t nearly as good as the version Rich played, but you get the idea.) Rich also played his killer Killers remix of All These Things That I’ve Done, which is unreleased. I got soul, but I’m not a solider. One of the coolest things about Blowoff is hearing shit that you can’t hear anywhere else. Blowoff comes to NYC next month, with a special event at the Meatpacking District’s fab new venue, the ultra-mod Highline Ballroom. People have been jonesing for Blowoff to come to NYC for years, so get your tickets quickly, it will surely sell out.
