On their way to Bumbershoot, Scottish indie rock royalty (with mouths like sailors) The Vaselines stopped in NYC Thursday night (8/30) for a show at The Bell House with openers Schwervon! (That's their exclamation point, not ours.) Like in recent tours past, Eugene and Frances were augmented by some of Belle & Sebastian, including guitarist Stevie Jackson who worked in a solo show of his own earlier in the week. The Vaselines played a 22 song set, which hit most of the classic plus tracks from 2010's solid comeback, Sex with An X.
More pictures from the show, including one of the setlist, are below.
