Manchester Orchestra Tonight at The Bowery Ballroom

April 29th, 2009

On the heels of its second full-length album, Mean Everything to Nothing, released just last week, the young Atlanta band Manchester Orchestra has set out on a U.S. tour through the beginning of June. That very tour reaches the Lower East Side tonight as they play The Bowery Ballroom. The show is sold out. So if you’re not fortunate enough to have a ticket, this spirited performance of “Wolves at Night” on Late Show with David Letterman will have to fill the void. The song may sound familiar because you already know the band’s debut album, I’m Like a Virgin Losing a Child, or because you recognize it from the NHL ’08 soundtrack. Either way, these up-and-comers deserve your attention.
