Deap Vally at the Tote

It has taken me a while to write this entry and get on top of my regular blog posting. True is, with assignments, commitments, work and a lot of shows happening in town, there has been hardly any time to dedicate to my beloved regular audience.

A couple of weeks ago, there were a bunch of shows in town due to the most famous festival in Australia, Splendor in the Grass.  Deap Vally was one of the shows I really wanted to cover and I was not disappointed: the young duo from LA had quite a lot of character. A small venue (where so many bands have played over the years that you can see the marks of duct tape covering the stage) with just two young girls on stage, projecting a fun and a careless attitude towards a crowd that seemed to be well aware of who they were and what their jokes were about.

Keeping the cool, having fun, a few sips of Jack Daniels here and there, a guitar pedal missing somewhere on backstage, a few knobs falling off the drum kit, and a very successful crowd surfing attempt were some of the ingredients of a really fun night.

The fuzzy guitar –Lindsey even pulled out some mellow slide in one of the last songs- and the never-ending beat kept the audience head banging  mesmerized for every single minute. There was even some poet-like cameo appearance and a couple of love declarations during the soiree too.

A very fine show I must say.

Thanks for reading.
