the ghost of a saber tooth tiger


We took the trip to Williamsburg to see The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger - a duo that consists of Sean Lennon and his super-hot girlfriend, Charlotte Kemp Muhl. It was a pretty intimate set and Sean stood next to us for the entire opening act. I was too nervous to say hi, so I didn't ...and I kind of regret it. I'm sure he's nice, but the place was filled with too-cool-for-school hipsters and I felt that I needed to curb my enthusiasm.

Articles I've read about the lovebirds have described their music as everything from whimsical, psychedelic folk-pop to post-apocalyptic, french-inspired love songs. I think the lyrics to their songs are strangely beautiful and Alex and I have both been listening to them quite a bit these days.

I enjoyed a few songs from Sean Lennon's solo career, but am absolutely in love with The GOASTT. There are a few videos from the evening on our youtube channel, if you'd like to have a look. We were standing pretty close to the speakers, so the sound quality is not too crisp.

Some rowdy fans started screaming at them to play 'Into The Sun' from Sean Lennon's 1998 solo debut. They were good sports about it and played the song even though he seemed to have forgotten the chords/lyrics. It was acoustic,  so the sound on this particular video is decent:

I took these photos at Union Pool, a bar that has a backyard patio with a fish taco truck that sells corn on the cob! We're kinda hoping that we can make our way back to New York from time to time to catch more shows like this one.
