Crowd Interviews (8pm)
By Rebecca Eisenberg
crowd that formed outside of the door was pumped, ready to go.
Briklin, age 21, occupied a spot at the front of the line with his friend
Poppy. When asked why he had come out so early for the show, he
answered that Luscious Jackson has "style; they have soul." The couple
had taken a two hour trek up from Santa Cruz, the beach community in
which they lived. LJ is "pretty cute," Poppy added, and also mentioned
how much more she enjoyed LJ's music now that the band has added the
hot-wax-spinning talents of DJ Alex Young. "It adds flavor," Briklin
Phil, from San Francisco,
is a die-hard LJ fan. He commented that he liked the "postmodern
urban landscape, [painted by LJ] that takes disparate aspects of
culture and weaves them into righteous sound."
Two 30-something couples who were attending the show together -- Kathy
and Tim Hider, and Mireya Manigualt and Thomas Cryer -- explained their
presence by the fact of having been "big fans of the Beastie Boys for
quite a while now."
The doors opened, and the crowd piled in.
