Deerhunter played Brooklyn Steel w/ Mary Lattimore & L’Rain (pics, setlist)
Deerhunter are on tour now supporting their very good new album Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? and that tour landed in NYC for a show at Brooklyn Steel last night (2/27). They opened with the classic "Cryptograms," and then proceeded to play a nice chunk of the new album, plus a handful of other older faves, including "Sailing" for which they brought out opener Mary Lattimore to play with them. The band and especially co-frontman Bradford Cox were in great spirits -- Bradford crouched down to reach out and touch fans' hands numerous times during the set, and he crowdsurfed during the encore.
Mary Lattimore played her opening set alone on stage with just her enormous harp, and won the crowd over with her friendly banter and purely instrumental songs. Before Mary, L'Rain played an abstract, seemingly improvisational set that was like one continuous song with no breaks, and they had the audience sit on the floor while they played. Pictures of all three acts are in the gallery above. Deerhunter's setlist and a few videos of their set, below.
