Albert Hammond Jr Setlist
Song not on their album was "Horse", taken from their Mixtape (Volume 1) compilation album. As they started their song, Hoho paused for a second and said that their their van almost flipped over driving into St Paul... and then without a beat, continued on singing the song.
Walking Shapes' album Taka Come On is out now, a deluxe edition was released earlier this year via No Shame Records.
As we have previously mentioned, if you love The Strokes, you'll love Albert Hammond Jr., as their music and songwriting style is very similar. Personally, I feel the only difference is that Hammond Jr's songs does not feature Julian Casablancas' vocals.
Turnout to the show was incredibly good for a Tuesday, with most fans there on the strength of Hammond Jr's solo material, not just his work with the Strokes. Not that anyone was expecting Hammond Jr. to play the classic Strokes songs, as he is known to keep the two projects separated. This was strictly an Albert Hammond Jr. show, not the Strokes.
Hammond Jr. played almost everything from his latest Momentary Masters, including his single "Born Slippy" and set closer, "Side Boob".
