Divine Fits @ Beerland - 8/1/2012
Divine Fits @ Beerland - 8/1/2012

Divine Fits played their second show (the first official one) in Austin on 8/1 at a sold-out Beerland with locals The Young opening the night. While this was indeed Divine Fits' second public performance, the band consider the 7/31 show their '0.5' debut,

Following the format of the secret show one night earlier at the Continental Club (billed as 'The Hot Skull'), they kept to a 12 song set. The only noticeable differences being the order of the songs, and the omission of 'The Salton Sea' from the list.

As with the Continental show, DF sounded great and all appeared to run smoothly, with the only super-minor hiccup being the need to have a quick guitar trade between Dan and Britt as they started Nick Cave's "Shivers" (video below). Despite much of the set being brand-new to the audience (as Divine Fits' debut LP, A Thing Called Divine Fits, isn't released until August 28), all went over really well.

Next stop is Dan Boeckner's hometown of Montreal on Friday 8/3 (the same day that tickets go on sale for the NYC show). All current dates are listed, along with more pictures, videos, and the setlist, below...
