Neon Indian @ Mercury Lounge (more by Erez Avissar)
Neon Indian finished their three-night NYC run with a show at Brooklyn Bowl last night (12/17). Toro y Moi didn't open that show like he did at the two previous gigs which were both at Mercury Lounge, but he will play Brooklyn Bowl on March 26th when he opens for The Ruby Suns. Tickets are now on sale...
"[At Brooklyn Bowl, the] electronic musician known also known for his recordings under the name VEGA, blasted off into the lo-fi synthy stratosphere along with his three compadres, including what looked like a 17 year-old D&D player (cape included) and a cute girl in hot shorts that acted as band cheerleader. Playing tracks exclusively from their excellent debut LP Psychic Chasms while doctored images from teen-angst film The Doom Generation played behind them, Neon Indian had fun and looked good doing it. Their brand of dance music has a whimsical, nostalgic feel to it without sounding forced." [NY Press]Pitchfork just named Psychic Chasms the 14th best album of 2009. VEGA was just added to tonight's show (12/18) at Market Hotel with Tanlines. Future Islands canceled due to illness.
And the Market Hotel show is actually one of two appearances Neon Indian band members are making in Brooklyn tonight. Neon Indian (aka drummer Jason Faries) is also listed as a DJ at the new Germs party at Europa. More details on both shows below...
