The Feelies: Irving Plaza, New York NY

Andy Schwartz, New York Rocker, March 1981

THE FEELIES are in trouble. The Feelies are troubled. They have gained an audience (this show was as well-attended as any Irving plaza gig by an American band in recent memory) but lost their way. They are searching for inspiration and motivation, for the thing that made them make music in the first place.
