Video: Superchunk Live at McCarren PoolYesterday we showed you the scene at this weekend’s McCarren Pool show in Williamsburg, at which Chapel Hellions Superchunk rocked, Brooklyn tots Slip-’n-Slid, and music fans baked under the sun. Today we’ve got full-song video of two performances from the show. Above, check out Superchunk playing their opener, “Driveway to Driveway”; below the jump, catch the band playing the always-great-live “Animated Airplanes Over Germany.”
Comedy Nerds, Meet Indie-Rock Nerds“There’s a lot of sexy geeks here tonight,” said Clem Snide front man Eef Barzelay from the stage. The crowd at Irving Plaza last night for The Daily Show’s “Ten Fucking Years” anniversary concert cheered in agreement. From the program guide that is sure to be on eBay within 24 hours (introduction by Thomas Pynchon for serious!) to the bouncing thrum of Superchunk, the event was a social mixer few would dare to host. (Consider: Sarah Vowell was one of night’s biggest star sightings.) Proceeds went to the cool kids’ favorite charity, Dave Eggers’s 826NYC.
