Deerhunter

Deerhunter popped in to the Apple store in SoHo Tuesday for a last minute free gig to promote their stellar new album Halycon Digest which was released the same day. It was the band's second free show in less than a week.

Bradford and crew played eight songs to the crowd of fans who snagged wristbands that were distributed starting at 10am that morning. The full setlist is below.

For a longer show, catch Deerhunter when they hit the road in October with Real Estate, and Casino Versus Japan. That tour includes Webster Hall in NYC on October 15th (tickets still on sale).

More pictures from the Apple Store, with the setlist, below...

i would have loved to sit on my fat ass during a deerhunter show

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2010 11:33 AM

but that is what Deerhunter is all about: nostalgia not for an era, not for antiquated technology, but for a feeling of excitement, of connection, of that dumb obsession that makes life worth living no matter how horrible it gets. And then sharing that feeling with somebody else who'll start the cycle all over again.... and a bunch of bored dudes sitting on their butts at the apple store watching a bunch of bored dudes stand on a folding stage is what this cycle is all about! FEEL THE ENERGY!

And they changes the music to Rainwater Cassette Exchange...that was a nice surprise.

Everybody was grooving in their seats....it was worth the wait.

The best part was after the show, Bradford stuck around to show everyone his pedal board, and then showed us how to use it, and then let people play his guitar while he showed everyone how to play one of his new songs. It was the most adorable thing to witness. He was very sincere.

that's cool, did he show you how to create a slideshow using the iMovie app on his iPhone too? those apple workshops are the best

Show was amazing. Bradford Cox stayed 45 minutes after the show to hang with fans. He shared personal stories about his equipment and encouraged anyone to play for a bit.

Say what you will about Bradford Cox but he is the real deal...an incredibly prolific, talented and creative songwriter who is making music in order to truly reach out and communicate with people.

to 12:25...so you would rather stand and do the same chin stratching?? idiot - Nobody moves at Deerhunter shows, or for that matter NYC shows in general, so you might as well sit if given the opp! Also, only the first 50 ppl or so were seated, so you are just an idiot, quit now.

lol @ deerhunter....beach fossils made these dudes obsolete over a year ago. anyone who still cares is fooling themselves

Posted by Anonymous | September 29, 2010 6:47 PM

Agree, Bradford is the real deal!
