black midi just released their brand new album, Hellfire, and made a few stops in the US in support of it before heading right back to Europe for more festival dates. On this very quick trip they played three shows in the States, including a free show at Central Park SummerStage on Sunday 7/24. The sweltering heat wave that had engulfed the city didn’t slow the band down at all or the very excited fans, who reveled in the band’s unique blend of noisy, jazz-twinged indie math rock. Hitting seven of the album’s ten tracks, they also mashed a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “Daft Punk Is Playing at My House” into an intro of “Eat Men Eat,” changing it of course to “black midi is Playing Central Park.” Free ice cream and ice pops were given out at their merch tent which saw long lines of enthusiastic fans throughout the night.

 

The lineup for the show was an eclectic mix, with a stand up set from SNL featured player Sarah Squirm kicking off the night. Her set was aided by a number of visuals and leaned hard into the body horror comedy she is known for. She also led a guided meditation (with help from Bonnie Baxter from Kill Alters) that was, shall we say, definitely interesting and just a little bit bizarre. She was followed by Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti of America’s Got Talent fame. He performed a set of classic standards like “New York, New York,” “I’m Just A Gigilo,” and “My Way,” delighting the audience who chanted “SAL! SAL! SAL! SAL!” at the conclusion of his set. A mosh pit also broke out which may just have been a first for the lovable crooner from Bethpage.

 

black midi setlist: 953, Speedway, Welcome to Hell, Sugar/Tzu, The Race Is About to Begin, Lumps, Still, Eat Men Eat, Chondromalacia Patella, John L, Faster Amaranta, The Defence, 27 Questions, Slow

Like many anniversary tours that were originally scheduled for 2020 but forced to postpone because of the pandemic, Circle Jerks 40th anniversary tour to celebrate their 1980 album Group Sex was a long time coming after it was initially announced. Setbacks from the pandemic and band members testing positive after the tour commenced didn’t stop them from finally reaching New York this past week though, and they tore through a packed 33 song set on back to back nights at Irving Plaza. They played the same set both nights and hit every song from Group Sex (except interestingly enough the title track) and numerous other classics from their catalog.

 

To round out the bill, they played with bands that were their contemporaries in the early 80s punk landscape, hardcore greats Negative Approach and 7 Seconds, both of whom were recently in NYC at TV Eye after the tour had postponements due to Keith Morris testing positive for Covid.

 

All the setbacks and delays aside, fans were overjoyed to finally see all three bands together in action and from the looks on their faces at the show and how active the crowd was, it was well worth the wait. See vids, setlist and pics below.
