The band is from New York and more precisely from the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

This song says:

Today - the Lower East Side is yuppified with fat cats and their poor folk hide

It's also a pun, like Angst suggested with the word less. So it does have a double meaning because the LES of Manhattan is a poor neighbourhood.
