Delorean @ Pianos
Delorean

Barcelona's Delorean played a pair of sold-out NYC shows before skipping to the West Coast. They'll be back for a free July 7th show in Stuy Town and a July 10th show at Bowery Ballroom with globally-inspired BK duo Tanlines and breezy texture pop act Glasser. Tickets are still on sale.

Both Delorean shows were in settings that feel intimate with a packed house - June 4th's at Pianos with MNDR opening, and June 5th's at Glasslands with Restless People (mems. Tanlines) and MillionYoung. For a nearly 90 degree day, Pianos was pretty comfortable, with dancing room to boot. I wasn't there but the notoriously sticky Glasslands reportedly had new overhead fans spinning to fight the temperature.

MNDR opened the Pianos show with her one-woman dance party; others joined in as she persuaded the early crowd to get moving. Her future-pop anthems (even power ballad "I Go Away") were quotable after one listen and meshed into a star-ready whole. The headlining Delorean inspired even more of a dance party. Their set was short on talk and long on pulsating jams. The Subiza tracks flowed like one melodic thread over a room-shaking beat (no surprise that they fit a pair of DJ gig in while in town). Simply said, these guys know what they're doing. The album was released this week on True Panther in all formats.

More pictures from both shows, all tour dates and Delorean's new unofficial video for "Simple Graces" are all below...

As much as blogs like these need photos, photographers really need to learn to respect the audience at shows where there is no press pit. At the Pianos gig, one photographer almost got into a physical fight with some of Delorean's friends from Spain because he insisted on hogging up spots in the front the whole set through, and they were dancing too closely to him. If there is not a designated area for the press, please have the courtesy to get your shots in during the first few songs, and just let it be and enjoy the music. Especially if your blog isn't as well-read as BV.

4:16, are you Molly Neuman?

I agree with 4:16. Seen this happen at Pianos and other venues. We all understand the urge to get the best pics but also respect the audience, especially when it is the band's first gig in the US and the crowd is not used to the american rudeness

First gig in the US? I could've sworn I saw them play the Delancey last September @ CMJ.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

The atmosphere was excellent last night there. I am very glad that I could be present at this show. Very energetic the blonde singer, mostly she assured the quality of the show.
