The jam band supergroup No*So*No played the Brooklyn Bowl the other night (7/7) to celebrate the 9th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bowl’s existence.
Located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, the Brooklyn Bowl was opened by concert promoter Peter Shapiro in 2009 and since then it’s become one of the most popular clubs in New York, featuring acts as varied as Elvis Costello, The Hold Steady, The Roots and Todd Rundgren.
Comprised of drummer Joe Russo, guitarist Eric Krasno, bassist Mono Neon and keyboardist Peter Levin, No*So*No played a wildly improvisational set that was loose, jazzy and altogether satisfying. This marked the first (and maybe last) time the band has ever played together and it was a brilliant mix of musical virtuosity and funky fun. Every moment was sublime, but their breathless take on The Beatles’ “Get Back” was particularly rousing.
