At the first of a run of three intimate shows in NYC on [Monday] night, Moby got back to his roots (insert mandatory bald joke here)””playing earthy arrangements of his hits with a full band. Sporting a Bad Brains T-shirt, Moby (who got his nickname because his great-great-great-granduncle wrote Moby Dick, fact fans) alternated between playing electric guitar and playing drums. Unsurprisingly, the well-heeled crowd roared loudest for the songs from Play, but it was still good to see Moby put some heart into his electrosoul. [Time Out New York]

Moby’s latest release, Wait For Me, which NPR’s Bob Boilen called his “best new album in a decade”, is out now on Mute Records. More pictures from the Irving Plaza show, a new video for the song “Mistake”, and all upcoming Moby tour dates after the jump.
