U2 on Broadway

Picture10 Unos, dos, tres, catorce [1,2,3,14]

Turn it up loud, captain! – from Vertigo, u2’s new album.

I’m at my desk like any other day, and I hear a band outside. It’s not uncommon–bands play on the quad at Columbia all the time. I thought I recognized the beat–but I didn’t know the song. Then I looked outside. I put the beat with the image–“that’s U2!!!!” I sprinted down the stairs and into the street. It looks like they’re filming a new video for their how to dismantle an atomic bomb. They’re on a tractor trailer driving down Broadway. I ran with the band (and throngs of other fans, happy-struck by their good fortune) from 116th St. to 110th. See the Photo Album for pictures.
