Best Fwends

Best Fwends is made up of Anthony Davis and Dustin Pilkington both out of Forth Worth, a city known for basically being considered Dallas, Texas by people who don’t live there. By all accounts, it’s a pretty boring place which explains how two people were basically able to lock themselves into a room and create electronic music fast as hell on what sounds like toy keyboards and microphones. If you’ve only heard their releases Alphabetically Arranged or Not-So-Alphabetically Arranged, then you’re really unprepared for the live show.

Dustin, the redhead, seems to lead most of the songs and dances while Anthony seems to be the more introverted of the two. There is a large amount of staged elements found in their sets, such as the song “Hail”, a thrash metal emulation which involved them taking on the mantle of metal singers throwing up the goat on each chant of “Hail!” then becoming almost monkish as they fold their hands into prayer during an instrumental section of the song, as following a dark faith, they close their eyes and stride in a circle through the audience to end up back where they began in time for the song’s end.” [King of the gigabitches]

Das Racist played their second NYC in two days last night (8/20). The first was at the Bell House when they opened for Islands. The second was at The Studio at Webster Hall where they shared a bill with Nature Boy Jim Kelly, Body Language, and Best Fwends. For Best Fwends it was their first of four NYC shows this week. Their other upcoming shows are on bills with Ninjasonik, The DeathSet, Vivian Girls, The Beets, Real Estate and others. More pictures from last night below….
