Over here at Crossfade, when we're home alone, chained to our computers and wasting away from lack of food, booze, and human company, we like to live vicariously through Twitter. (It's also good for checking when to actually pay attention to some long, boring crap like the Grammys.)
And so it was that while Nouvelle Vague was serenading Little Havana last night with its global-lounge versions of post-punk, we hit the tweet crack for the scoop. For just 140 characters a pop, we felt like we were really there. And we learned to be even more paranoid about leaving our cars near the Manuel Artime Theater. (Sorry, @GoEddy.)
Follow us on Twitter at @Crossfade_SFL and let's all procrastinate en masse. Here's a timeline of the evening, thanks to people we
stalk follow. One particularly industrious tweeter even uploaded videos practically in real time (see below). From all us shut-ins last evening, thank you.
