Show Review: JadedPunk Presents… Brendan Kelly and Dave Hause – Brooklyn, NY (11/12/12)

The jaded punk community of Brooklyn, NY rejoiced when it was announced that JadedPunk.com would be hosting a show at The Knitting Factory in Williamsburg on November 12, 2012. A four-act line up including Brendan Kelly (of The Lawrence ArmsThe Falcon, and his Bad Sandwich Chronicles blog; as well as ex-Slapstick, and ex-The Broadways), Dave Hause (of The Loved Ones), Jenny Owen Youngs (of Jenny Owen Youngs), and Kyle Kinane (of Kyle Kinane), it seemed as if the JadedPunk staff had really out-done themselves with the booking. In the week leading up to the show, internet personality Jaded Punk Hulk also teased that there would be a special guest. Rather than leave it a surprise, JPH then went on to announce on Twitter that Brian Fallon (of The Gaslight Anthem) would not be allowed into the show, making it obvious to everyone that he would be the guest.

Ruined surprises or not, the show still wound up being a successful venture. The Knitting Factory is an excellent sized venue for an intimate acoustic show; allowing for performers to interact with the audience but also spaced out enough that the crowd isn’t right on top of them. The night began with Kyle Kinane- a standup comedian. The very idea of a comedian performing at a punk rock show might sound absurd at first, but Kinane’s cynical style fit the jaded punk persona like a glove. From jokes about pleasuring himself while wearing swimwear to admitting that he loves to visit IKEA until the time of purchase, Kinane had the crowd laughing and cheering throughout his set.

Jenny Owen Youngs opened her set with “Last Person”, a song about picking up people at bars, hinting that maybe a lucky few in the crowd would do just that. Two more songs about sex and one song about The X-Files later, the crowd seemed to be mostly unresponsive, which is when Youngs opted to play her cover of “Hot In Herre”. The room instantly lit up and started singing along proving two things: 1) the room wasn’t responding to her songs due to not knowing the lyrics, and 2) the jaded punks of Brooklyn all know the words to a Nelly song. Youngs then invited Brian Fallon on stage to join her for her song “Fuck Was I” (as heard on Weeds) and a cover of “Ring of Fire”.

Dave Hause treated the audience to a nice collection of songs both old and new, making sure to cover work from both his solo work and by The Loved Ones. He expressed his disdain for how quickly new songs will debut to the world on YouTube, and did request that some people “put their YouTubes away” while telling some more personal stories although time will tell whether or not anyone granted his requests. Hause also may have blown Jaded Punk Hulk’s cover, although there’s no telling for sure if he had just picked a kid at random and claimed that the person was JPH or not (for the illusion’s sake, we should assume he did pick someone at random). After playing through fan favorites such as “Jane”, “Pretty Good Year”, his cover of “Coma Girl”, and “The Bridge”, Hause invited both Brian Fallon and Jenny Owen Youngs to join him on stage for “Prague (Revive Me)”, before closing his set with a solo medley of The Loved Ones’ “100 K”, The Gaslight Anthem’s “45”, and The Hold Steady’s “Constructive Summer”.

Brendan Kelly, who was notoriously remembered by at least half the audience for his last performance in NYC- during which he could barely finish playing a single song, managed to get up to the stage without falling over, and despite the technical troubles at the beginning of his set, Kelly made his way through his songs with little to no trouble. In between songs such as “The Ramblin’ Boys of Pleasure”, “Boatless Booze Cruise”, “Suffer the Children, Come Unto Me”, and “Like a Record Player”, Kelly told anecdotes regarding his children, strangers having sex on park mattresses, and how Brian Fallon won a bet after the Mercury Lounge performance due to Kelly’s own drunken stupor. At one point, Kelly even diffused an argument breaking out by telling the drunken crowd member that a part of being a super cool drunk guy is respecting other people’s space, high-fiving the man and asking for no more trouble. It seemed a little silly, but it worked, so take notes Matt Canino. After a barrage of requests from the crowd, Kelly performed a cover of Jawbreaker’s “Kiss the Bottle”, before hopping into an impromptu cover of the Misfits’ “Skulls”. To close out his set, Kelly invited Fallon out on stage to join him for an acoustic rendition of The Falcon’s “Unicorn Odyssey”. Before exiting, Kelly made a remark about wanting to hear Fallon play “National Anthem” off of The Gaslight Anthem’s newest disc, Handwritten, which is when the show transitioned into a Brian Fallon set.

Over the last five years The Gaslight Anthem has gained considerable attention from just about everyone. Regardless of the negative comments that could be made, there’s always this really great feeling that comes with a show when every single person in the room is singing along, and seeing it happen when Brian Fallon is playing is no exception. Fallon played songs from all of his band’s major releases including “We Came to Dance”, “The ’59 Sound”, “Here’s Looking at You, Kid”, “Boxer”, “National Treasure”, “Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts”, “Great Expectations” (complete with a “Warbrain” interlude) and “1930”. In between songs Fallon revealed that despite his well-known and well-documented love for Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder, his first true musical love was American Steel, and urged everyone there to go find copies of Rogue’s March and Jagged Thoughts. [Editor’s Note: Even though he was only addressing the show-goers, you should probably go check out those albums anyway] Dave Hause and Jenny Owen Youngs joined Fallon for his performance of “45”, revealing that while on tour in Europe, Hause believed the chorus to go “I ache- turn the record over / I ache- I’ll see you on the flip side.” Just think about that the next time you listen to the song.

After Fallon’s set ended, the night still didn’t feel like it was officially over despite that all the acts there had played. That’s when Dave Hause ran back onto the stage with a guitar and started calling for Brendan Kelly to join him. Undoubtedly inspired by his time playing on the Revival Tour, Hause got all four musical performers on stage to sing Hot Water Music’s “Trusty Chords.” Aside from the absence of Chuck Ragan and a back up fiddle, the performance wasn’t all too different from how the Revival Tour will end its nights. Add that to the fact that everyone was jumping on stage with each other for a song or two, and Jaded Punk may have their very own acoustic act tour on their hands. Everyone may have been drunk, but no one can deny that it was a fun night. Should JadedPunk ever put on another show, and in your immediate area, there are no excuses to miss it.
