Last Friday night, our Juxtapoz editor was one of the few lucky people to get into the very special (and free) Blur concert at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of Converse Rubber Tracks. The show, which was brilliant, fun, and loose, featured the band playing almost the entirety of their new LP, The Magic Whip, with a few classics in the encore.
