I've been on vacation all week, you'd think I would have updated my blog earlier. HA! Anyway, Sunday night Joy and I went to Irving Plaza for Mojo Aid, Jesse Malin put together this benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. There were a lot of musicians on the bill so they all played about 20-30 minute sets. We were mainly there to see Ryan Adams but I was also excited to see Ted Leo and Debbie Harry. There was supposed to be a big surprise guest at the end, which I didn't stay for and I'm glad I didn't because I heard they never showed up. Among the other artists playing were Joseph Arthur (his set was bad timing since he played acoustically after a few rocking bands and he got boo-ed a few times, which I think is very very rude!), Marah (a pleasant surprise), Butch Walker (also a pleasant surprise), and er other people that I don't remember. David Johansen was "host" although he didn't come out til after over an hour into the show. I didn't even bother taking pictures during Ryan's set since the stage was just way too dark and I suspect he likes it that way. A lot of people left after Ryan's set, which I thought was unfortunate cuz Debbie came out after him. I was disappointed that she only played 3 songs but she still had her groove.
