Luna warmed up for some UK festival and EU dates with two very intimate shows at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade over the weekend (October 1 &2). The second of those, they played their 1995 album, Penthouse in full. Generally regarded by fans as their best album, Penthouse epitomizes the group’s laid back style, with lots of guitar interplay between Dean Wareham and Sean Eden, and Wareham’s sly lyrics. In addition to Penthouse, Luna also performed the CD’s hidden track, a cover of Serge Gainsbourg & Bridget Bardot’s “Bonnie & Clyde,” and well as a few other tunes, including Donovan’s “Season of the Witch” (from the I Shot Andy Warhol soundtrack) and finished the night with a killer version of Pup Tent‘s “Fuzzy Wuzzy.” Cut Worms opened the Penthouse night. Did you go to either night? Video from the Penthouse set and a few more Instagrams, below.

When the band returns from Europe, they’ll play three nights at San Francisco’s The Chapel, each themed to a different full album performance. (Bewitched, Penthouse and Rendezvous). All dates, Video from the Penthouse set, plus a few more instagrams, are below.
