"Play the rock, already!" yelled an impatient spectator toward the empty Fitzgerald's stage. Fans at Thursday's sold-out show (an understatement) were awaiting New York rockers The Walkmen - and impatiently so, evidently.
Touring in support of their sixth album, 2010's Lisbon, The Walkmen took the stage fashionably late and fashionable in general; they looked like well-groomed members of a prep-school elite who just happen to moonlight as gritty garage-rockers.
We spoke with Walkmen organist Walter Martin earlier this week about the resurgence of popularity Lisbon has seemed to bring the band. It's always tough for bands to follow-up on such a strong debut album; The Walkmen's impressive 2002 debut Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone quickly turned even the most critical indie heads.
