"Death from Above 1979 tonight. I've been waiting for this since high school" - Kevin

DFA 1979

Death From Above 1979, reunited and gearing up for a huge tour, played an intimate one-off show in LA at The Troubadour on August 14 with Big Black Delta. We've got pics of that show in this post. It was something of a warmup for the upcoming world tour in support of their long-awaited second album, The Physical World, which is coming out ten years after their first (9/9 via Last Gang). They debuted some stuff from that record at the show too. A video of "Right On, Frankenstein" had surfaced but is now deleted, but you can watch a video of them playing the album's single, "Trainwreck 1979," below.

As we mentioned, DFA 1979's tour will be hit NYC's Terminal 5 on November 28. Tickets for that show are still available.

More pictures from the show (including one of the setlist), and that video, below...

all we need is a post by Max Horwitch and that guy who's pissed at his gf for blowing everyone in the band, and we have every ridiculous bv poster in one thread.

I was watching videos of DFA1979 once and I saw one where the guy said to the audience 'if you don't like this song then you're a pussy' - it struck me as such a stupid thing to say, what a shitty attitude to have, especially when James Murphy made you his bitch

Lol that video sounds so out of tune

They should change their name to The Off-Keys.

Now that the previous posters are eating Cap'n Crunch and watching Saturday morning cartoons I can give a true opinion on this.

This band has always known how to ride the melodic noise wave, and while this new song is more traditional in a sense it still has the magic. As far as being out of tune, maybe people should learn how to play an instrument before they start criticizing some band's sound. "Oh, I play an instrument alright" - OK internet tough guy, post to this thread when and where we can come see you playing out soon, date time club the whole bit. Then we can critique your performance right here.

Are overalls the new thing? Should I get a pair? I want to be cool and accepted by everyone?!

@9:49 The difference is that I'm not charging someone $30 to watch me play. When I do, feel free to criticize me.
