Friday night JD Samson and the rest of MEN delivered a high energy, kickass, political and fun consert at Blå. Though JD was sick and had a sore throat she gave it her all. She is so freaking H.O.T! I was just born when they played here last time, and MEN is a favorite band of mine, so I was really happy that Oslo got them when the Arvika festival was cancelled.
MEN began in 2007 as the DJ/production/remix team of Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. In 2008 MEN expanded to incorporate the live band, Hirsute: JD Samson, Michael O’Neill, Ginger Brooks Takahashi, and Emily Roysdon. Together, the group created the album ‘Talk About Body.’
