Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches (whose live show is no longer a one-man affair) are wrapping up a tour together which hit NYC on May 4 at Bowery Ballroom with support from Father Murphy. Xiu XIu’s set covered pretty much his entire catalog, reaching as far back as “Suha” off his 2002 debut, Knife Play, through stuff off this year’s Always, and also threw in a cover of Joy Divison/New Order’s “Ceremony.” He returned for an encore to cover Suicide’s “Frankie Teardrop” (video below). It’s too bad he didn’t bring out his Suicide-worshipping tourmate to help him on that one.

After Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches finish their run together this week, Xiu Xiu will continue to tour into next month with Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, who we recently interviewed on bvChicago. That leg of the tour won’t return to NYC, but as discussed, YT//ST will play their own show here on June 13 at Mercury Lounge with YVETTE. Tickets for that show are still available.
