Prescription for Punk: Ted Leo & the Pharmacists At The South Street Seaport, NYC and Elsewhere

The Pharmacists brought their energetic brand of literary, politically-conscious indie rock to NYC's South Street Seaport almost a year ago with a rather comprehensive setlist, spanning what is quite a robust discography. The show was recorded by Matt Casey and hosted by the excellent etree live music archive. The length is admittedly a bit daunting, especially if you've yet to hear anything by the band, so I'll start off with a few taster tracks. These first three tracks were performed acoustically by Ted. The first two are off of the latest effort, Shake The Sheets, and the final cut is the now infamous Kelly Clarkson (with Yeah Yeah Yeahs insertion) cover.

Criminal Piece (Domestic Disturbance Bootleg)
Me and Mia (Domestic Disturbance Bootleg)
Since U Been Gone / Maps (for UGO Players)

If you're feeling sinis...adventurous, rather, here's the full Seaport setlist. Enjoy:
