Rothko (Adult World), NYC, Summer 2005
Rothko was a Lower East Side club formerly known as Adult World, notable for the working showers lining the entrance hallway. In the grand Excepter tradition of the miss-matched bill, we were paired with a skate-punk band called S.T.R.E.E.T.S. which we understood to stand for “Snowboarding Totally Ruined Everything, Even The Snow.” This poor band of reverse-oakies earned JFR's ire for trying to blame the venue when they got busted by the NYPD for drinking on the sidewalk outside. Nightclub ethics are a rocky road to travel either way.
Oh yeah and Grizzly Bear opened for us, too.
