What was missing from last evening’s Wilco show at McCarren Pool? It’s difficult to be exact.
Everyone sang along: "She's gonna be my cock professor / Studying my dick!"
People are like, 'Oh the guy in 'Juno,' the chemistry teacher.' It's like, 'Oh yeah? He's also done a little bit of music too. Go check it out.'
Turns out that the crowd was not just a symbol of democracy, but also full of wannabe stars who hilariously but annoyingly refused to go away.
"Me and Mia" and "Sons of Cain."
"Oversleeping" and "Treehouse," by I'm From Barcelona.
Excellent tunes and an astonishing mustache.
We chatted with TV on the Radio's arty, kind-hearted front man Tunde Adebimpe about Sonic Youth, hamburgers, and the apocalypse.
Above, check out Man Man playing "Banana Ghost," preceded by a brand-new song that we would title "Been Knocked Out Way Too Long," but which is probably called "Kitten Apocalypse" or some shit.
Yesterday 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."
