Free Paint at DBA 5th Anniversary Party (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Free Paint

As mentioned, Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches released a split 7" for Record Store Day and kicked off a tour together earlier this month/week which hits NYC TONIGHT (5/4) with Father Murphy, who just played The Stone on Tuesday (5/1) with Les Bonhommes (who count Deerhoof's Greg Saunier as a member). Tickets for Bowery Ballroom are still available.

Speaking of Greg Saunier, who also produced/played on a handful of Xiu Xiu records, his band Free Paint plays Zebulon on Sunday (5/6) with Shy Hunters, Shahzad Ismaily/Ryan Sawyer/Darius Jones, and Interstitials. Check out a video of Free Paint at Death by Audio's 5th Anniversary Party below.

Xiu Xiu also has a new video out for "Honeysuckle" off his recent LP, Always. Updated Xiu Xiu dates and videos below...

The pic looks like one of those boxing action shots where the photographer catches the impact of the punch as it dislocates the boxer's jaw. Purdy cool IMHO.

Greg, bring Deerhoof around again!
