Death From Above 1979 at Coachella (more by David Andrako)
Death From Above 1979

Lets pray that riot police won't be deployed when Death From Above 1979 play their NYC reunion show on the banks of the East River, at Williamsburg Waterfront on 7/22. Tickets go on sale on Friday (5/20) at noon. Openers TBA.

The NYC date is one of a few the band has scheduled for the summer, and a rare non-festival appearance for the band who will also swing by Sasquatch, Osheaga, Lollapalooza, and the recently announced Austin City Limits.

All tour dates are below along with some video of the now infamous incident at SXSW.

We're being force-fed that this reunion is valid and worthy of all the hype it's being given. Such bullshit, this band didn't deserve the attention it got when they came out the first time.

someone's got a case of the Mondays... and it's Tuesday!

Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the one epic show of the NYC summer concert season.

Take that any way that you want to.

Let the hype-fest continue!

Ummm...yeah, these dudes still pretty much suck.

Tickets need to be cheaper. I'm sorry but this is not a band they can get away charging nearly $50 for!

once a band plays coachella, they're no longer cool.

Posted by Nick | May 17, 2011 1:25 PM

I agree. Like Kanye.

who cares

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 2:14 PM

I'm gonna buy all the tickets when they go on sale so I can scalp them. Waterfront and AEG Live suck open asshole. DFA 1979 is gayer than Tyler the Creator getting super AIDS from Magic Johnson in a Russian Bath House. I listened to DFA 1979 when they were cool back in 1978. Fags.

Posted by James Murphy | May 17, 2011 2:32 PM

^ Pretentious and gay as Super-AIDS itself (I'm not a fan of this band).

I love how everybody can just mindlessly trash/praise a band like this without mentioning a single aspect of how they sound or perform. Here, I'll start: even though the bassist's sound is fucking killer, this is band isn't that great because the vocals sound like corny 80's power rock.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 3:01 PM

I'd see them in a small venue. Outdoors? Idk. If the tickets are $15 or $20 MAYBE I'll see them again. I saw them at MSG opening for NIN. I don't mind the band really, kinda sloppy, kinda fun, kinda hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 3:10 PM

Didn't realize they had ever broken up. I thought they just faded away. Whoops.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 3:45 PM

yeah, is kinda funny that everyone on here acted excited and now doesnt care. sums up the music scene

OH SHIT GANG GANG

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:36 PM

I will pay $1B, they are amazing, both on record and live.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 6:32 PM

I will be there. Me and my hummus platter are gonna represent.

$43.35. That's the price including fees according to Ticketmaster.

Seems a bit much for DFA 1979. And I really like them.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 4:50 AM

I am a big dfa fan - 43.35 is honestly outrageous for them to ask for - but like an idiot i paid it -. just think 6 years earlier they played up the street for 18.

FunFunFunFest prediction

Posted by TXn | June 28, 2011 3:49 PM

It's $43.35. Either pay for the ticket or shut the fuck up and suck a dick, you broke, lame bastards. All these faggot-assed comments on this site.

That being said, this show will be great.

anyone know the set times for tonight?

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2011 1:24 PM

my ticket says 5:30. I hope I meet up with that fuck who likes to cut lines tonight ... our brief encounter will make for a good appetizer for the mayhem to follow (for me that is, he will unfortunately not be unable to attend afterwards).

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2011 1:31 PM

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.
