Over the past few weeks, there have been quite a few beastly mentions, rants and raves about how super excited we were to join forces with killer cool dude Jeff, from The Culture of Me, and East Village Radio to throw an exclusively private and ultimately rad acoustic set by Echo + the Bunnymen frontman, Ian McCulloch.

Last Friday, the night began with talks and tunes down at EVR during Mark Ronson's Authentic Sh*t show. After Mac and Mark had their verbal rapport, it was off to The Studio at Webster Hall for an intimate evening with the iconic singer.

Dare we say, Mac was in great spirits, considering a touch of a sore throat. He coyly interacted with the crowd, sipped brandy and water, and most importantly, brought an enthusiastic energy to six classic songs. Beginning with the latest E+tB single, Think I Need It Too, McCulloch ended the evening with the always fantastically perfect "sing along to it" staple, The Killing Moon.

Thanks again to all who helped put together this rad night. We are/were honored to have been a part of it!
