Last night a co-worker and I headed over to Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a solid evening of free beer and live music at the House of Vans. It was the final concert of the summer, with Brooklyn indie rock legends Les Savy Fav closing the place with an epic rager.
Admittedly, I don't dabble in a lot of indie rock. But I greatly prefer live music that involves talented people playing insturments over pressing buttons on a laptop. I've been a fan of Les Savy since 2008, when I happened to be watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien and they blew my face off with a performance of "Patty Lee," a single off Let's Stay Friends. I had this amazing, "woaah, this is so legit" moment and instantly spent the rest of that night seeking out as much Les Savy music as possible.
Anyone who knows a thing or two about Les Savy Fav knows that their bearded, beer-bellied frontman Tim Harrington is a fucking legend to see live, tearing through the crowding and stripping off multiple ridiculous outfits throughout the show. He's a maniac in all the right ways. Anyway, last night I captured a pretty excellent Vine video of Harrington attemping to strip out of a jumpsuit into the Tobias Fünke-esque jorts that he performed in for the rest of the night. Poor dude fell right over like a tree getting axed by a lumberjack. It was a great moment of physical comedy, and there we were, cheering him on.
Shit was awesome.
