Herman Düne played to packed room at Union Hall last night. Their band is big and while this last-minute show could have been just David-Ivar, Neman, and their new bassist, thankfully some other friends were also there to help out. The two girls from The Baby Skins, who are on the last album, were there to sing backup. Members of Beirut, John Natchez and Kelly Pratt (also a touring member of the Arcade Fire if you want to get technical), were filling out the horn section. Maybe having eight people on stage for the show was dumb luck, but their massive sound flooded that tiny room. The only problem was the set was too short and, with eight albums, a lot of people left without hearing their favorite song. But Herman Düne have arranged a last-minute encore at Goodbye Blue Monday this Saturday.
Sept 1 :: Herman Düne – Goodbye Blue Monday, Brooklyn NY
Sept 7 :: David Herman Düne (3 person band) – Cake Shop, New York NY
Yes, it is not listed but they did announce it at the show.
