OK, OK, OK. We know that this is long overdue. But we couldn't pass up the opportunity to share the night that the illustrious Beth Ditto took the Fonda stage in what we assume was her pre-Halloween take on the ever charming Wilma Flintsone. It was all cat moves and throaty swagger, or what we've come to expect from the Gossip. No one works a crowd like this crew, and they had the fans singing along to every word off their new full-length, Music for Men. If you haven't given them (or aptly named opener's Men, fronted by Le Tigre's JD Samson) a try, it's a definite must.
