First Pool Party of the summer featuring Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu playing Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” in its entirety:
The best part of this performance was “I Remember Nothing,” which was accentuated by wine glasses smashing into a garbage can. Also dare I say Greg Saunier (Deerhoof’s drummer) far outperformed Stephen Morris (Joy Division’s drummer), despite being 30 years apart. Great kickoff to summer.
Also on the agenda for this year: Lightning Bolt, Jeff the Brotherhood, Future Islands, Cap’n Jazz, No Age, !!!, Murder City Devils, and a lot more. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to walk there.
