FIDLAR @ Public Assembly (BV-CMJ 2011)
Though FIDLAR played 8 shows at SXSW this year (9 if you count the Vice one that got shut down before their set), a BrooklynVegan party wasn't one of them. They did however play one of the BrooklynVegan CMJ day parties at Public Assembly in 2011. Here are some belated pictures from their NYC set. More below.
The melodic garage punk band don't have any more east coast dates to report at the moment, but they are releasing a brand new EP digitally this week via Mom + Pop (which makes them label-mates with Neon Indian, Sleigh Bells and Andrew Bird). It's called Don't Try. Listen to one of its four songs, "Black Out Stout", making its studio-version debut in this post, with more EP info, the CMJ pics, and a list of three dates they have scheduled with OFF! in California, below...
