The Vaccines @ T5 1/31/2012
The Vaccines

"When you're a kid and you see these people in these bands, you think they're these perfect beings beamed down from space," says [Vaccines' frontman Justin] Young. "I definitely don't feel like a different person, but perhaps I'm expected to be. I really didn't want to make a record about being in a band and being a musician. I think that really disconnects you from your audience, because how can anyone relate to being in a band? So I wanted to talk about it from a human perspective, rather than a musician's perspective. I think when you get into your mid 20s, you realize how big and bad the world is and no matter how much you cry over spilled milk, no one is gonna mop it up for you. The world is a cruel place and it's like realizing that." - [Metro US]
UK indie rockers The Vaccines headlined Terminal 5 last night (1/31) as part of their current North American tour. Local band DIIV made a rare NYC appearance as openers. Did you go to the show?

The Vaccines tour rolls on tonight at Washington DC's 9:30 Club. More pics from T5 are below.

Why does the singer of DIIV have to always look like a lesbian named Tessa?

Nothing rare about a NYC diiv appearance. I've seen them by accident at least 3 times this month. Can't get away from those fuckers.

DIIV probably makes more moolah than all of ya'll. Ponder that.

DIIV has two good songs, other than that the album is unlistenable.

I can't get over how much of a fucking douche the guitar player from Vaccines appears to be. He might be the nicest guy on the planet but looking at photos of him "rocking out" makes me sorry that I listen to rock music. Also, when did the singer go from looking like a prep school dweeb to wanna-be metalhead?

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2013 12:54 AM

right when you decided longish hair = metalhead.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2013 5:24 AM

band members are always cooler with long hair.
