The Real Tuesday Weld played Joe's Pub with their projection screen and offbeat musical numbers, songs that feel like they fell out of the past and landed in a computer keyboard; it's a unique sound, modern and a throw-back all at once.

Cousin Joey said it was hard not to watch the videos, but I figure that's why they were there. I was pretty intrigued to watch the way they used the projections, but sometimes it seemed like they were just playing live to music-videos; it's not completely integrated to me, visually interesting and musically satisfying, but not a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Luckily, they sound right good live--it's an almost completely different experience than listening to their CD, which is also very satisfying and strongly recommended. And, if you're gonna be distracted by visuals, it's not like the videos are uninteresting; they're beautiful, if at times arbitrary.

Alex went and interviewed them about their antique beats; you can hear that here.
