No Age’s Dean Spunt and Randy Randall owe me a pair of ear drums. Last night, in their third Miami show in less than a year, the Los Angeles duo blasted Grand Central with the intensity of art rockers trying to shake off their ambivalence about their recent Letterman spot. The all-ages crowd — noticeably smaller than at Caribou’s October Grand Central show — made up for its size with its own energy, at one point prompting Spunt to whisper a warning into one stage diver’s ear like Christopher in the “D-Girl” episode of Sopranos season II. (To our Twitter followers: Yes, I am trotting out that line again.) After the show, No Age headed up the road to BAR (formerly PS14) to man the decks and perhaps satisfy Randall’s desire to get to know Miami better. I, on the other hand, drove home, periodically shouting “What’d you say?” to no one.
Here are some photos from the show.
