[video vault] Freelance Whales, from Allston to Cambridge (tonight @ the Middle East)

Back in April, the Phoenix teamed up with Great Scott to start shooting and recording live performances at the Allston Rock Club, and not just drunkenly between picklebacks with a shaky Flipcam. Among the first of these sessions was with Queens-based indie-pop kids Freelance Whales, who roll back into town tonight at the Middle East in Cambridge. They're bringing Brooklyn dudes Miniature Tigers along with them in a show of borough love, and Boston has responded by signing Carl Crawford offering up Pretty & Nice to round out the bill. One hell of a show.We're even sending a photog.

So yeah, if the A-fucking-plus show flyer down below doesn't get you all jazzed up for some Thursday night rock n' roll, Cambridge-style, then maybe these four videos, skillfully shot by Dustin Devlin, Matt Thompson, Fabian Perez, and interviewer Tracy Drane, will do the trick. Just leave your whale tail at home, ladies.
