Reviews

From Adam

I caught the Boys last Saturday in the city. Great show, but not perfect. They played all the best known and loved stuff, like Rock N Roll Toilet, I Wanna Be An Anglepoise Lamp (formerly I Wanna Be a Seven-Winged Bat), I Wanna Destroy You, Queen Of Eyes, and (my favorite) Only The Stones Remain. They also played some of the new disc, probably three or four songs. I was kind of surprised that the show seemed to be as much a Robyn and the Egyptians concert as it was a Soft Boys show. Probably at least half of the material they did was from his solo records, or with the Egyptians, which was cool, but they weren't all that tight on some of the songs. Robyn goofed at least twice on vocals, coming in too early and throwing off the rest of the band. Kimberly Rew was awesome; manic, spastic, and definitely the most fun to watch. The crowd was enthusiastic and loud, we called them out for two encores which the band seemed to really appreciate. They saved the best for last. playing a great version of Dylan's Oh Mama to end the second encore. All in all, much fun.
