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.
