MBV are here, DIIV opening 2nd show (win tix to either night!)
MBV @ Philly's Electric Factory, 11/9/2013 (via @mceachern68)
As you may know, My Bloody Valentine are in town for two NYC shows, their first since 2009 and they're the last ones of their 2013 world tour before (supposedly) going back into the studio record an EP and work on some vinyl reissues. Tonight's show (11/11) is with Australia's Dumb Numbers who feature Dinosaur Jr's Murph on drums and who snuck in a surprise show last night at The Flat; Tuesday's show (11/12) will be opened by DIIV. Tickets are still available for both shows. But if you'd like to go for free we're giving a pair away to each show. Details on how to enter are below.
In our interview with MBV's Kevin Shields, we asked him where the best place to stand was at one of their concerts:
Honestly, just in front of the sound guy I guess. (Laughs.) It just depends on the venue, really. A lot of venues the desk is in the back, and the "sweet spot" is about ten feet in front of that. So... in the middle?
Check out live footage of the band playing "Only Shallow" at The Aragon in Chicago on 11/3, and the set list from Saturday's show in Philly (11/9), below...
