Stereolab has been reissuing their amazing collection of records which has brought them back on tour for the first time in many years. On Friday and Saturday, the band performed two sold out shows at Brooklyn Steel, which was their first show in New York City in eleven years.

We caught the night 1 performance on September 27th, which saw the band marvelously weave through all the expected classics from their albums, which had the sold out crowd in the palm of their hands the entire way through. They were pretty balanced in the amount of material pulled from each of their records, which kept a good vibe going throughout the building as they kept us all enthralled with their lovely and thrilling performance.

They seem to be in great spirits and having a lot of fun playing these shows, let’s hope it’s not another decade before they return to us here.
