The Stooges - New York, NY - 2003-08-27

The Stooges at Roseland Ballroom in New York City, August 27, 2003

So, so fortunate to have seen this show...Having never seen Iggy before, seeing him with The Stooges was the way to do it.

This was the original line-up except for bass duties, which were handled by indie superstar Mike Watt.

Iggy was over the top. This show rocked my world. I was literally pogo-ing up and down in place the whole time. Iggy climbed the rafters, attacked the VIP section, taunted security, dragged people up on stage and kicked it out.

I know there is a live DVD from the reunion tour, their "homecoming" to Detroit which appears to have gotten good reviews. The quality on the audience recording I am pulling today's MP3 from is good enough to take me right back, I hope its good enough to give you a sense of how wild it was.
