The Streets Offer Shots, Covers in NYC
The Streets wound down their tour with Lady Sovereign at New York City's Webster Hall Tuesday night with an energetic, alcohol-soaked finale. Mike Skinner started the show with some crowd-pleasing medleys, fusing 'Don't Mug Yourself' with the Arctic Monkeys' 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.'
A few tracks into the set, he detoured for a brief rendition of the Pussycat Dolls' 'Don't Cha,' changing the lyrics to make the sexy song even more suggestive. At one point Skinner grabbed a bottle of booze from a makeshift drumkit bar and began distributing shots to the audience. The covers continued with brief bits of Stardust's 'Music Sounds Better' and Joan Jett's 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll' before Skinner capped off the night (and the tour) with a shirtless stage dive.
If you missed your opportunity to get dirty with some U.K. grime courtesy of the Streets, Skinner promises he will return in November to run the New York Marathon.
