Whoa, I was at this show! This was at Brooklyn Bowl back in 2011. This was my first time seeing Cibo Matto, it was after they reformed after taking some time off. They totally nailed! Was a real treat when they brought out Sean Lennon to sing this one - I guess he had been on the album, but I hadn’t expected to see him sing it live with them.

Fun cool part: the stage is directly to the side of a bowling alley, and while the live music is loud enough to drown out noise, in between songs, you could hear the sound of the pins crashing down to give it that true bowling alley ambiance.
