The lovely Pierces performing at Restoration Hardware (yes, the furniture store) on March 22, 2012. Very good looking, dressed up crowd, all of whom I am pretty sure have never actually seen a band play, and who didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to the Pierces’ flawless performance. To quote my plus one, Allyson DeMunda, it felt like a house party at a really large house with lots of places to sit and endless drinks and food. The potato pizza–to die for.
