I got there at about 9:45 and they came on at about 10:05. It was pretty crowded. I have seen it worse, though. I think people were squooshed up a bit making the way back less crowded than it can be for super-crowded shows. I paid my cover at the door, so I'm not sure if it sold out soon after that or not.
The show was great. I had very low expectations due to the venue and crowd. I didn’t make it to that Tribeca Rock Club show back then, but I did attend a couple of rare K3 shows at 55 Bar after that. I think I remember hearing the TRC show didn't go so well, and therefore, I thought they might not translate well to another, larger venue. However, I have no clue whether this was actually the case. It's just a thought that was in my head and may have no truth to it at all.
Anyway, last night was a lot of fun. I liked the 2nd set even more, when the crowd thinned out a lot and I could get closer. I thought both sets were good, though. It is different here than the teeny tiny 55 Bar and being 5 feet from the band. I think I may like being a little farther away since it gets so intense. Although, I do have some remembrance of being more blown away at the tiny space.
