Freelance Whales @ Webster Hall - 11/7/12
After Freelance Whales had to cancel their original 11/1 date at Webster Hall due to Hurricane Sandy, they postponed it to November 7, which was, of course, the day of the Nor'easter, but they managed to play the Manhattan venue this time. Support came from Conveyor and Geographer. With the announcement of the new date, they also offered an option to donate to hurricane relief with your ticket purchase.
Freelance Whales put out their most recent album, Diluvia, in October and played almost every song from that at the show, and worked in a number of tracks from Weathervanes as well. The full setlist and more pics from the show are below.

The Treasure Island Music Festival went down over two days on a small island in the San Francisco Bay, juggling two stages and acts that ranged from Death From Above 1979 to Cut Copy to St Vincent. The bands and sets were staggered so that changeovers allowed for the audience to see all of each band which, on day 1, included appearances from Death From Above 1979, Geographer, Aloe Blacc, The Naked & The Famous, Shabazz Palaces, YACHT (who play NYC in December), Battles, Dizzee Rascal, Chromeo, Buraka Som Sistema, Flying Lotus, Cut Copy, and Empire of The Sun...
"Sometimes a performance impresses you simply because of its natural and flawless flow. This was Chromeo on Saturday [10/15 at Treasure Island Music Festival]. The Montreal duo known for creating modern 80s-inspired electro-synth pop got one of the largest crowds of the day moving immediately as they opened with "Fancy Footwork." The hits kept coming with classics like "Don't Turn the Lights Off," "Bonafied Lovin," "Tenderoni" and set closer "Night by Night." Chromeo over the years has cemented themselves as one of the more fun and original acts in electronic music, Saturday was no disappointment whatsoever."Chromeo, who since played Moogfest, play their first of two shows at Terminal 5 tonight (11/4).
