Dum Dum Girls @ Prospect Park

Dum Dum Girls; Hospitality 

@ Prospect Park

Brookllyn, NY - June 21, 2014

I've waited a long time to see the Dum Dum Girls. I've been singing their praises for half a decade now but I have not been able to see them live until now. At long last...

And what? They were frankly speaking dead inside. On autopilot. Deprived of oomph. Maybe not on recorded classics like the showstoppin' "Coming Down" or the recent "Rimbaud Eyes", but generally speaking Dee Dee and her contingent appeared neutral at best. And I've gathered for some time now this is par for the course.

Hospitality. Remember the episode of the Simpsons where Lisa meets a very smart student and that kid's dad gives her a ball and says "Got away from you eh? Well you keep at it." Remember it.
