About two hours ago and armed with a Flipcam, I caught some on-the-scene ghetto-video of NYC's the Vandelles, who blanketed a fairly crowded PAs Lounge in a blistering coat of shit-hot surf-noise rock n' roll. It might have been too early in the day for these kinds of sonics, but it was a hell of a performance. Recorded here is the track "California Killer."
The Vandelles played as part of the 19-band Deep Heaven Now psych/ambient festival, which later tonight will also feature 28 Degrees Taurus, Asteroid #4, Soundpool and others across two venues in Somerville. Hurry up, it's still happening, and goes until just after midnight. $10 gets you into both PAs and Precinct.
Oh, and pardon the folks walking by in the clip... I said it was ghetto. Enjoy the sneak peek.
