It’s a small crowd tonight in a small band room [max capacity 76]. Cakeshop is a good little, bleach smelling venue. I like this place not simply because they sell cakes, but because they have bands every night, with some interesting line ups. Not all nights are good, but they’re a place for bands to try out their style in NYC, and I admire venues that give this opportunity to kids. I’m in an international city: THE international city – so why see an Australian band? Well frankly I’m homesick, plus I’ve never seen them before, plus it’s an interesting line up, but unfortunately I miss the first act.
