DOWNLOAD: Giga Dance (MP3)

Wow, there's a lot of hate in the air. I thought yesterday (Sunday, August 13, 2006) was a beautiful (la la la la) day full of great-AND-free music at McCarren Pool. I thought Deerhoof especially entertained with their intense drum beats, catchy-poppy-danceable songs, and fun-to-watch-and-listen-to frontwoman, but others who I talked to at the Pool and in the comments (here & here) said that Beirut, and then Deerhoof (minus one), "sucked". Has the Beirut backlash begun? Expectations too high? Are Deerhoof to weird to be playing in front of 7000 people, many of whom probably had no idea what to expect? Should we be more worried about this Beirut, and not this Beirut? Am I too tired today to be writing anything coherent? (yes)
