Wire in NYC May 30th

Thirty years ago London, UK's Wire came across the pond to play the now defunct CBGB's. Tonight they opened the first show of Seaport Music Festival. They played a lot of tunes from Send and they even played the 1979 classic "15th" from the album 154 which Brooklyn's Fischerspooner revitalized back in 2003. They played "106 Beats That" off their debut Pink Flag towards the end of their set and "Lowdown," "12XU" and "Pink Flag" during their encores. Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Gray and crew put on an excellent show and set a high bar for this great New York City festival.
