Last night we saw Ted Leo and the Pharmacists at Webster Hall. Ted Leo live is always a pretty solid bet, and the show lived up to my expectation. There's a fourth Pharmacist now (seen lurking in that picture). There were a lot of newish songs, and I think I liked them better live than I like the recorded versions. Hopefully they do a summer show again this year.

Love of Diagrams opened. They are an Australian trio recently signed to Matador. I think the second half of their set was better as they played more catchy things. I liked them, but they could use a bit more diversity in what they do.
