Placebo Rock Virgin Megastore

U.K. glam-rock poppers Placebo played an hour-long set at the Virgin Megastore in New York City's Union Square on Tuesday in preparation for their show at the annual CMJ (College Music Journal) conference Thursday. The set, which mostly featured tracks from their just-released LP, Without You I'm Nothing, was highlighted by their current U.K. single "You Don't Care About Us;" their U.K. hit "Pure Morning;" and the catchy "Nancy Boy" from their self-titled first LP. The show, sponsored by local radio station 92.3 K Rock, was a wristband-only event for contest winners, CMJ conference participants, journalists and people who bought the LP at Virgin that day.
