Red Lobster is a super-group that contains band members from Total Slacker, Night Manager, and others. They played an impressive show at Brooklyn Bowl last month, and it so happens that both groups were on the roster for the night.
There was a sense of excitement in the air when Night Manager took the stage. The swirling guitars were both sweet and menacing, and the vocals of the lead are incredible. Plus, one of their guitarists had a really cool gorilla t-shirt.
There’s something about the lead vocalist of Total Slacker that recalls something of Thurston Moore; so passion-filled that he lost his glasses during the performance.
On the subject of the crowd, the fierce prevalence of fashionable head-wear on guys was noted. Has it always been this way?
