Before leaving L.A. for her final show with Vivian Girls in N.Y. on March 2nd–Cassie Ramone played an intimate acoustic set at the Melody Lounge in Chinatown. It was haunting and I’m hoping someone recorded it, for the sake of history.
This polaroid was taken right after we finished our set on 2/10/09 (4 years and 1 day ago) in Metz, France. While we were playing “Tell The World”, the promoter surprised us by lowering a bunch of fake plastic bats from the ceiling and bobbing them around, like in the music video. It was amazing. The bottle in the front of the picture was a bottle of Tequila that we (and the crowd) finished during the set.
There was a guy at this show who had a black leather jacket with a white drawing of a giant vagina on the back. During a break between songs, I spoke a little french to the crowd (“I never wear socks” and “You swim like a fish”) and he yelled out “YOUR FRENCH SUUUUCKS” and he was right. No one laughed at all. It was awkward yet I remember it fondly.
This picture ended up being the cover art for the “Moped Girls” single.
