The above photo was taken on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, on June 4th, 2006. I tend to avoid the more touristy stuff in NYC, but that day there was a get together of Fall fans in NYC. For those who don't know the Fall
, they are a post-punk band from Manchester, England that goes back to the 70s. If everything goes right (and sometimes it doesn't) the band will be returning to New York City this June with a show at the Knitting Factory
and at Southpaw in Brooklyn
. I had hoped that the Fall would play in Williamsburg, but I'm just happy to have them back in NYC to see them.
Here's another tourist shot of the Empire State Building:
