Xiu Xiu & Deerhoof will tour together & perform Joy Division again (in Brooklyn this weekend)
Xiu Xiu + Deerhoof @ Donaufestival 2010 (armin r)
In April, Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu premiered their joint cover of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures at a music festival in Austria. On July 11th (five days from now), the bands will again perform the album as joint headliners of the first Williamsburg Pool Party of 2010. Why?, Fang Island and Pictureplane all open that free show.
In the fall, Xiu Xiu and Deerhoof will be touring together in Canada and the North East. Also on the horizon is a new Deerhoof album in 2011.
