The Von Bondies Like To Pose
Dan Aquilante of the New York Post reviewed the Von Bondies gig at Irving Plaza on Monday, hardly impressed with guitarist/singer Jason Stollsteimer and crew. He writes, “This is a band that likes to pose — which you can tell by Stollsteimer’s well-groomed scruffiness, from his chic hairdo to his $200 Paper Denim & Cloth jeans. This is a guy who’s practiced his ugly face in front of a mirror while singing into his hairbrush. When Stollsteimer was playing a lead on his electric six-string late in the show, he got weak knees and dropped to the stage floor. There’s always the possibility that he actually was moved by the intensity of the music he was making — but it seemed like a hollow stage trick.” The full review at nypost.com has since been removed.
