Last night Graham Coxon (former frontman of British pop sensation Blur) took over the Bowery ballroom with a giagantic set, mostly songs off his new album Happieness in Magazines, which is a must have, by the by. He's a kick'n guitarist and the set snaps, crackles and pops. Energetic as the music is, he didn't move around much on stage. Maybe he was taking his cue from the audience which was a bit older and a bit, uh... catatonic. I can't help a but to shake my thingamahgig when he plays a song like Freakin' Out. The highlight of the show was the japaneese girl in front of me who kept yelling to Graham, "You so cute"! each time he would crack up.
