A Night Out With Cut Copy + Awards

(photo credit: Zach Wiegand)

Homeys tore up Webster Hall on Sunday night; and we tore up the upstairs balcony couch cushions with a new bounce/dance combo move called "Where's our teacher? She hasn't shown up yet!" that's most similar to how the kids at Polly Fector Elementary roll before Miss Vaughn arrives.

And jackpot, indeed. Some alt bros had a hard time figuring out how to dance to "Strangers in the Wind," but then the entire crowd miraculously synched up to do the Teen Wolf freeze/lock for about ten seconds during "Time Stands Still." No one knows where moments like these come from, but it was amazing. Now for some Cutters accolades:

Best remix from CSS' new album:

CSS - Move (Cut Copy Remix)

Donkey haters need to fall back.

Best bonus track featured on the UK release of In Ghost Colours:

Cut Copy - Cold Youth

It's the only one, so. They started occasionally dropping "Cold Youth" during extended sets around 2006, which would explain why the sound seems a bit sloppier compared to IGC's top gear production values. Makes a good case for Japanese bonus tracks.

Best post-show calmdown jam:

Cut Copy - Hearts on Fire (Triobelisk/Celestronica Remix)

Serve with ribs and Growing Pains repeats. If you can get your hands on any of the international syndicated versions, try Latin America's Ay! Cómo duele crecer, literally translated to mean "Ouch! How painful is growing up."

Best Cut Copy DJ mix we haven't posted on BT yet:

A Night Out With Cut Copy (96 MB)

A quaint 2K6 Ableton capsule redeemed by early nods to Poni Hoax/Zongamin and several high fidelity classics. Full tracklist here.

Raddest Butter Team produced Cut Copy video:

Sound quality is beat b/c it was grabbed from a MySpace stream, but you should still get misty when Bart Connor slows down to wait for Cru in the final lap.

Butteriest fake Cut Copy commercial:

Sony's new Foam City campaign featuring "Visions." Wow - really didn't think I'd be up here twice, so, I guess, just thanks again.

Also this week:
Hot Chip Tickets/Vinyl Giveaway
The Planisphere/Interstella Mystery

I think the highlight of the night was when they played Zap Zap. The photographer right behind me got every strand of my hair in his face from my wreckless dancing.

You captured the moment really well with that photo, I'm the one with the red long sleeve, front and center. Photog dude, right behind me, on cue. Poor guy.

I wish I could say I was one of the 2 competing striptease dancers on the balcony. Unfortunately, I do not have those moves, but thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

As for the show, Cut Copy impressed me yet again with their unique style and addictive energy. Loved it!!!!
