Prefuse 73 @ Governors Island
Saturday night's "Gone to Governors" show included sets by Neon Indian & Miniature Tigers, Dom, Nite Jewel, and Prefuse 73 who probably would have been the headliner if the order of the lineup was based on seniority. Instead Prefuse played fourth, before the much buzzed headliner Neon Indian who will also be Scott Herren's tour-mate across North America in the fall.
Prefuse's live Governors Island hip hop-infused set included electronics, vocals, live drumming and coordinated, sometimes-pornographic visuals. The sound was booming and they sounded great in the outdoor setting. If you didn't feel like dancing, you could always just watch the screen, or walk around staring at the water and skyline with bugged out zombie eyes as many in attendance were.
Prefuse 73 will play a DJ set at Studio Square in Long Island City on Saturday, August 21st, as part of an oil spill benefit. There doesn't seem to be too many details about the event listed anywhere, but Myspace says 9:00-11:30.
