WFMU's Free Music Series took a turn for the legendary during the climax of Alan Vega's solo set this past Saturday night. After stunning the packed house with the kind of wild rants heard on his new album "Station", Vega was joined on stage by headliners Oneida, and together they destroyed the whole room with a rendition of the Suicide classic "Rocket USA". After the set, the musicians retired to Southpaw's backstage area where this photo (right) of all involved parties was snapped by Leah Moskowitz.
Thanks to everyone who came out for the show, especially the performers, volunteers, and the Southpaw staff. We'll be back at ya soon with yet more in the way of free shows, so don't dance too far from your radios.
In the meantime, here's Suicide performing the original version of "Rocket USA". [Real Audio]
