"Yes it's balls hot out, but still looking fwd to the outdoor Death from Above 1979 show tonight. Flaming asteroids couldn't keep me away." - Alex Navarro

"Dying from heat at Death From Above 1979 @ Williamsburg Waterfront at East River State Park" - Dave Surgan

"Seeing Death From Above 1979 at Williamsburg Waterfront. Yeah, no big deal, not like it's 103 degrees outside with 114 Heat Index. Nope." - Brendan Hilliard

DFA1979 in Williamsburg
Death From Above 1979

Despite the heatwave, Death From Above 1979 played their first reunion show in NYC at Williamsburg Waterfront on Friday (7/22) with The Drums. DFA1979's 17-song set (encore included) consisted of almost the entire You're a Woman, I'm a Machine LP and Heads Up EP, and a couple b-sides. The Drums played most of their debut, and a bunch of songs off their upcoming LP Portamento too.

DFA1979 first announced their plans to be a band again at the beginning of the year and have since then also played SXSW, Coachella, and Sasquatch.
