I had never heard them before, but they were great. They even did a little impromptu encore because everyone at the show liked them so much.
Yeah, a friend of mine recommended them a looong time ago, and I wound up playing their first album (which I think you can still download for free either off their website or off their record label's site) over and over. They came out with a new single back in January, but I haven't heard anything new from them in a while.

Haha, the drone shit can be really annoying if you're not a self-described purist. I once saw Yuck play and the end of their set just absolutely blew—they did some annoying drone/thrash shit that no one wanted to hear. On the other hand, I saw Destroyer last summer and during their set they played this 5-8 minute drone-segue thing which absolutely killed. (It also wound up leading into Suicide Demo for Kara Walker, so that helped significantly.)
Anyway, rft to make this thread-relevant: now that summer heat is approaching (it was almost 70 today, but I swear the sun made it feel like it was mid-70s), what do you guys put on your feet? I've got canvas sneakers, but my feet get hella sweaty with either no-show socks or without socks.
