Peter and I took a trip up to New York yesterday. The early afternoon was occupied by sifting through galleries in Chelsea, the highlights of which were the Tim Gardner and Michael Craig-Martin exhibitions, held (respectively) at 303 Gallery and Gagosian Gallery. The late afternoon was spent being herded around NBC Studios in Rockefeller Center, waiting to see Interpol perform on “Last Call with Carson Daly”. The vast majority of the audience was Interpol fans, which pretty much precluded them from being Carson Daly fans, so there was a marked lack of enthusiasm for the non-Interpol portions of the program. The band played “Obstacle 1” and “NYC”; the show will air on Friday night, so check your local listings for the time and listen for Peter and me whooping it up.
