Hot Chip

Wednesday’s wild thunderstorms threw a big, wet wrench into the gears of many outdoor shows last night, causing cancellations/postponements of the MNDR/Javelin/Delicate Steve show on the Intrepid, the Summerstage show with Big Daddy Kane/Marley Marl in Queens, and moved the Refused/Off! show from Williamsburg Park to Greenpoint club Europa. But the rain didn’t scare a bunch of geeky dudes from England with a bunch of temperamental electronic gear. Nor did it stop their fans, who packed Prospect Park to the fences and danced their asses off the whole time.

Hot Chip‘s set time (and doors to the bandshell) were pushed back in hopes the rain would stop, which it did, making for a muggy night but no one seemed to mind. Hot Chip thanked Celebrate Brooklyn for not canceling the show. The band, now augmented with not just long-time live band member Rob Smoughton (aka Grovesnor) but also Holy Ghost! drummer Jim Orso, played the lion’s share of their new album, In Our Heads, and peppered the rest of their set with favorites like “Over and Over,” “I Was a Boy from School,” “I Feel Better,” and “Ready for the Floor,” the latter of which morphed into a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere” (which they’ve done before).  At the end of their show, they invited the whole crowd to come party with them at Santos (where JEFF the Brotherhood played earlier that evening).

We missed openers Gang Gang Dance  but they’ve also got three upcoming headlining Brooklyn gigs, so maybe we’ll catch one of those. Hot Chip play with Chromatics at Terminal 5 on Friday (7/20) and tickets are still available. More pictures and the setlist from the Prospect Park show are below.
