Iggy Pop in Tompkins Square Park
EVG reader Juliet passes along these photos of Iggy Pop from late this afternoon in Tompkins Square Park... filming something or another... (any idea who he's with???)
Maybe the former East Village resident is giving another tour of the neighborhood?
Anyway, Iggy played the United Palace last night in support of his fine new record, Post Pop Depression. (Alex shares a few thought on the show here.)
And Iggy — aka James Newell Osterberg, Jr. — turns 69 on April 21. So happy early birthday Iggy...

that the guy from cbs morning news
60 Minutes reporter????
Anthony Mason from CBS News.
Steve Kroft from 60 Minutes?
Are Iggy's legs really that off balance? Notice the giant platform on only one of his shoes.
When I read the caption I thought it was Iggy and a guitarist playing in the park. How fucking cool if he or any famous musician did that? A set at 10am on a Wednesday, no one around save whoever happens to walk by.
Yeah, he's got one leg about an inch shorter than the other. It's been mentioned in interviews, and paparazzi photos occasionally show his various one platform-heeled shoe fashions...
Iggy Pop playing in TSP at 10am on a Wednesday would not be cool. Iggy Pop playing in TSP for one of the scheduled events, like the May 1 show, now that would be cool.
7:09 AM: You haven't had your coffee this morning yet, eh?
Maybe he did it early on a Wednesday morning because he just wanted to be a guy playing a guitar and not a show. Can totally respect that.
His platform is just a 'reason to be cheerful, 1-2-3'
7:09pm is Francis from Stripes.
Lighten up, Francis!
"You play TSP at 10am...and I'll kill you." LOL
