That's A Wrap: New Pornographers:: Webster Hall::: 10/25/07

“Super Group” may be the cringe worthy label that has been all too aptly applied to New Pornographers ever since they formed back in 1996. But the band’s performance last Thursday at NYC’s Webster Hall proved that it’s not just household names that set them apart from many of their peers. Granted, the evening did mark one of the few occasions to check out the full ensemble of musicians associated with the band...Carl Newman, Neko Case, Dan Bejar, John Collins, Blaine Thurier, Kurt Dahle, Kathryn Calder, and Todd Fancey…recreating live material from Challengers, Twin Cinema, Electric Version, and Mass Romantic. But by flooding the spacious stage with up to thirteen musicians at a times, showing off their famously seasoned sound for a brawny hour and forty-five minute set, and bringing Gordon Gano on stage for a Violent Femmes' cover during the encore, the band proved their reputation comes by way of their unselfish, willingness to provide an entertaining, autumn evening for 1800 friends. – David Pitz



Amazingly, the band gave us the opportunity to both interview them, as well as film this memorable show. Stay tuned to Baeble in the coming weeks for exclusive footage.
