It’s Saturday night at The Phoenix Concert Theatre and I’m ready to see Miike Snow. Having covered countless shows at this venue without an incident, I arrived at 8 PM for doors (per the venue’s website) unconcerned. Imagine my surprise when there was no one in line outside. Steeping through the doors, panic set in as I heard the instantly recognizable music of Miike Snow coming from inside the club. I was informed by staff that doors were in fact at 6 PM ,because of the long-weekend, and that Miike Snow had taken the stage at 7:30 PM. Subject to the usual three-song photo limit, I had obviously missed it and I would not be allowed to take pictures. In fact if I wanted to enter, I would have had to check my camera. Deflated, I left to the continuing sounds of Miike Snow.
Below are some of David Reyneke’s photos of Miike Snow at New York’s Webster Hall, March 27th.
