Friday Ephemera - OMD setlist

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark played two nights this week at Irving Plaza. I caught the second night, and they were excellent. Try to catch them on their current tour if you can. See more photos and read a terrific review over at Brooklyn Vegan: "Once upon a time, OMD sounded as fearlessly futuristic as anything in pop music, and they were certain that their magical machines would render guitars obsolete. Now, well into middle age (and in the midst of an American tour that hits New York [last night and the night before]), they sound like a glorious old vision of a future that never arrived."
