Once in a while, Vulture takes a peek at what your friends and neighbors think of a concert. Today, the Guy Who Was Disappointed That the Game Let Last Night's Irving Plaza Show Be Overrun by Guests. (Apologies to Daily Intel and the Sex Diaries.)
Considering he's been a famous New Yorker since birth, you'd figure Sean Lennon would get gigs at New York's top concert venues. But, in fact, tonight marks the first time John and Yoko's son will headline medium-size Irving Plaza (or should we say Fillmore New York?). He's pretty psyched, even if it means playing for a crowd of old friends who've been witness to Lennon's personal soap opera, so he's focused on putting on a good show. We spoke to him about it — and his mom and the state of the record business — last week.
