If you were psyched about the Jane’s Addiction show at Brooklyn Bowl but not so psyched about the $125 ticket price, here’s another chance to catch some ’90s legends in a fairly intimate venue — for free. Rubber Tracks, the Williamsburg recording studio run by Converse, has announced that Britpop outfit Blur will perform in New York City for the first time in 15 years, at Music Hall of Williamsburg this Friday, May 1. Public registration for tickets starts tomorrow, Wednesday, at noon.
The band is supporting its first album in a dozen years, The Magic Whip, the first video from which you can watch below.
As if a free Blur show weren’t enough bang for your not-even-a-buck, Brooklyn rockers Honduras are the openers. Which is totally appropro, considering we compared them to Blur when we profiled them a year ago.
Honduras recorded songs for their Break and Morality Cuts EPs at Rubber Tracks; last month they released a single, “Paralyzed,” and this summer they’ll drop a new album, Rituals.
You might as well sign up for tickets — it’s a chance to yell “Parklife” at someone other than Russell Brand.
