The inside of Don Hill’s bar in Soho last Wednesday felt like the inside of a stove, or at least what we’d imagine that to be. The longstanding music venue/dive bar is still in process of renovation — due for an official opening during Fashion Week in September — so several A/C generators were not installed yet. Thus, hipsters like the miniature Olsen twins resembled melting candy munchkins. Think body odor, beer piss, and mascara that dripped like chocolate sauce, but what’s better for gritty rock n’roll? These pix above, shot by my pal, the artist Olivia Wolfe (who has a better camera than yours truly) captures just how sweaty it got for Alison Mosshart, who kept saying between sets, “It’s so f****n hot in here!” The group is finished touring for the album, “Sea of Cowards.” Consider this post a salute to the dog days of summer.
