"friends of friends"

Nothing to do with the Nickolodeon cartoon band of the same name, my first encounter with The Beets was a couple of years back when they hopped on the tail end of Todd P's Acoustic BBQ. I seem to remember there was a girl involved. They gamely bashed out a couple skifflish tunes with happily yelled lyrics, but the whole thing was so impromptu that one wondered if they really were a band. Come a couple of years later and they, having been feted by L Magazine as one of 8 NYC bands you need to hear, are about to set off on a nationwide tour with The Vivian Girls. On this show in particular, they had a prime spot opening for teen heartthrobs The Virgins. I was pleased to see that it was all as ramshackle as ever. The two songs I've picked are the goth-baiting 'Devil' and the angst anthem 'Why Should I Live If I Won't Fit'.
