I’ve been going to Webster Hall for several years, and my opinion has changed over time. But as I returned to WH over the years, I’ve soured to the place. For one, groups of girls go there for a “girl’s night out” and chase away any guy who tries to approach them. I think some of these all-girl groups are actually “party starters” who are paid by the club to dance in order to get everyone else to dance, since some of their moves look too “professional” to be your average female clubgoer. Hey, you wanna have a night out with the GFs, fine. But don’t be mad when you’re being hit on left and right.

Throughout the early twentieth century the building was plagued by fires, which occurred in , , , , and The original mansard roof was likely lost in one of these fires. The first decade or so of Webster Hall’s existence saw it host countless labor union rallies, weddings, meetings, lectures, dances, military functions, concerts, fundraisers and other events, particularly focused on the working-class and immigrant population of the surrounding Lower East Side neighborhood during its early years.
Although it also hosted many high-society functions catering to the uppertens of the city, the hall earned a reputation as a gathering place for leftist, socialist , Anarchist and labor union activity very early on. In , Emma Goldman , the outspoken exponent of Anarchism, free love and birth control , led a march that brought the children of striking Lawrence, Massachusetts millworkers to the hall for a meal in order to dramatize the struggles of the working-class.
In the s and 20s, Webster Hall became known for its masquerade balls and other soirees reflecting the hedonism of the city’s Bohemians. The coming of Prohibition did not restrict the availability of alcohol at these events. Local politicians and police were said to turn a blind eye to the activities; at one time it was rumored that the venue was owned by the mobster Al Capone. Latin performers, such as Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez played at the club. So, too, did folk artists Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie.

In the first of 2 packed nights of inside the iconic Manhattan venue, the legendary bassist took fans down memory lane and reminded everyone, even his biggest fans, why both of his bands mattered so much. In the 2-and-a-half hours he and The Light were on stage, it was hard to fathom how many hits New Order and Joy Division had. Just within the first hour, there were enough songs that some artists today wish they could both write and have in their arsenal.
That is what great chemistry in a band does. As New Order have continued on without Hooky, his nostalgia tours rival the band that has most of the original members. In fact, at points, he does it better with less. As close to the weekend as it was, the audience inside wanted to let loose.

Killer drums beats in La Gallera too. Track 3 is a great mainstream trance song. Track 4 “Trance Airport” is my personal favorite. Its got sounds that really get inside you and make you move, i cant really explain it.

Silverstein at Webster Hall, Feb. The tour, which features Hands Like Houses , Major League , and My Iron Lung as support as well as Beartooth on select dates , comes in celebration of the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough album Discovering the Waterfront, and also marks fifteen years since the band got their start. In keeping with the nostalgic theme of the evening, Silverstein began their set with “Smashed Into Pieces”, which was originally released as the first promotional single from their debut album When Broken Is Easily Fixed in Released just a few days before the tour began last month, fans were just as excited to hear “Midwestern” as all of the older songs they knew and loved.
This song is thirteen years old- it goes out to you guys who have been with us since day one. Finally it was time for the evening’s main event: Silverstein played Discovering the Waterfront from front to back. Other highlights included the album’s title track and the closer, “Call It Karma”, which began acoustic and finished with the full band.

Politicians, unions, musicians, celebrities, students, ravers and pretty much anyone who wanted to be someone or been seen with someone filed in to the venerable East Village venue for decades.

Their once skinny leather-clad bodies will grow bloated, their voices will no longer be able to hit the same notes, and their spiky mops of hair will thin. Just as likely is that they will not be able to retain the original line-up that seemed like such an inherently cohesive unit not that long ago. In the case of New Order, much of the above applies. Although the Manchester legends made a truly great record last year Music Complete , live the band is a disappointment, playing listless versions of a setlist that has changed very little in the last couple decades.
It is for this reason, as well as longtime tensions with frontman Bernard Sumner, that bassist Peter Hook left the group in Though playing these compilations is probably more akin to playing a greatest hits set than playing studio albums in their entirety, there are tracks on the New Order record that the band gave up playing long ago so hearing them alongside the frequently heard big hits is nonetheless welcomed. Hook began his second of two nights at Webster Hall with the New Order portion of the show.
The band plays each song much like they were originally recorded, although not necessarily like the remixes on Substance. With Hook singing in a much lower range than Sumner, the vocals are the greatest difference.

Theatre’s a con trick. Do you know what that means? Terrorism is theater… The normal objective of state or official terrorism is to enforce obedience and cooperation Success demands the creation of an atmosphere of fear and the seeming omnipresence of the internal security apparatus. One needs to remember that the ultimate purpose of false-flag terrorism is to affect public opinion and change the way the target audience thinks about the entity that is blamed.

Humble onstage, the frontman leads his tight backing band as they begin the night with Joy Division’s ‘Dead Souls’. Beginning with a proficient rendition of six Joy Division tracks played almost back to back, the only break being the majestic ‘Closer’ by New Order.
The audience applaud manically as they watch on beneath the gloomy stage lights as the band reanimate the hypnotic classics such as ‘Atrocity Exhibition’. Continuing on from this, Peter Hook conducts his musicians in a rendition of New Order’s brilliant release ‘Low-Life’ in full and fans simply watch in awe as they see the album brought to life.
Their encore features some of the most well known tracks from the two band’s careers, the likes of New Order’s ‘Temptation’ and ‘True Faith’ are performed with the synth tinged guitar led melodies and each note bounces round the room. A truly momentous performance of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ rounds off proceedings and leaves fans chattering about what they’ve just seen all the way out of the venue. About to embark on a huge US tour, Peter Hook plays beautiful homage to his two former bands in this intense live show, a must see.
