"DBA is as packed as i've ever seen it. Royal baths on now,
Ty Segall up next." -soundbitesnyc
"saw #tysegall at death by audio last night. incredible show, but i can't believe people moshed to every ty segall song. drank like 10 #pbr" - Sean McKeown
"about 4x as many people crammed in as last time. bodies everywhere. sweaty flying ones." - 9000
And apparently Death By Audio on 8/13 was so packed for the Ty Segall show that they started to stack people on top of each other. DBA was one of two NYC shows for the sugar-y San Fran garage rocker, with the FIRST taking place a day earlier at Cake Shop. Featuring support from Royal Baths on both dates, DBA also got sets from The Babies (mems of Vivian Girls, Woods, etc) Moonhearts (formerly Charlie & The Moonhearts), and The Zulus. Cake Shop (the day before) got The So So Glos and Weekends. Pics from DBA are below.
Both Ty Segall and Royal Baths are touring in support of LPs. Royal Baths will welcome their debut LP in September via Woodsist, while Ty Segall's fun new album Melted is out NOW via Goner.
The Babies are scheduled to play Cake Shop on Sept 24th in support of Garotas Suecas, alongside Sundelles and Holger. It's one of two dates for Garotas Suecas, with the second just two days earlier at Knitting Factory.
Tons of pics from Death By Audio and the crowd-surfin' mayhem is below, though unfortunately none of Royal Baths (Eric had escaped to the back of the room at the time)....
