OCTOBER 26, 2017 | BROOKLYN STEEL NYC
Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner got a hero’s welcome Friday night in New York City. For their first headlining concert in years, this time to promote upcoming album Sir, the electroclash duo known as Fischerspooner, downtown New York fixtures now for—gasp—nearly two decades, pulled out all the stops at Brooklyn Steel for an unapologetically queer and uplifting show that recalled the carefree exuberance of the early aughts. Spooner shimmied and turbocharged through new and old crowd-pleasers while flanked by half-naked back-up dancers. Chairlift's Caroline Polachek joined the fray for a few songs while new album producer Michael Stipe help court with the extended FS family backstage.
