Due to certain "actions" from Warpaint's label and management, these Warpaint shows will no longer be available on this blog. While it's seems incredibly short-sighted of them to feel this way, there isn't much I can do about it right now. Apologies.
(On another note,sorry for being so M.I.A. lately, real life has gotten in the way, but since things are winding down a bit, posting should resume soon)

Last June, Warpaint was part of the annual Make Music Festival in Pasadena, a festival that has stages of music scattered across the city. 2010 was quite a banner year for Warpaint - besides releasing their first full-length album The Fool, toured extensively, and rouse to further prominence and acclaim. It's been awhile since we have featured Warpaint (August 2009 and March 2010 at the venue formerly known as Spaceland), but it took us awhile to get this show in.
Half of the setlist was dedicated to The Fool, while the rest was from their 2009 EP Exquisite Corpse Consequence Of Sound had a good review of their set, saying that "Warpaint is captivating in a weird way. The music is groovy and melodic, with vocals that even seem haunting, and the band feels their music in a way that is rare. I think I was surprised at how rare it is, that a rock band felt compelled to move and interact consistently with each other, definitely not having reached the phoned-in stage." Enjoy this fun set.

Taper's notes: "I bailed on the last song to head to another stage to see The Growlers. But after waiting 10 minutes there past the scheduled time I bailed to get something to eat. I saw The Growlers at another festival a few months later and now I regret not seeing all of Warpaint then getting something to eat."
Seeder's notes: "I removed the first 28 seconds of track 1 as it had what might have been recorded music."
Update 3/31/11: This show is no longer available due to label and management issues.

Last Friday, C-horse played the final night of their February Friday night residency at Casey's Irish Pub in downtown Los Angeles. A rainy night did not keep the crowds away, and C-horse did not disappoint - they closed out a month of shows with a bang. You may have remembered that we just blogged about C-horse last week - which was quite a good show as well.
Being that this was the last residency night, we were treated to a guest appearance by The Damselles on the final number (coincidentally enough, we recorded them at the very same venue a little over a year ago before the date of this show), which was a cover of OutKast's infamous "Hey Ya!" One of two great covers, the other was Nirvana's "Pennyroyal Tea" Good show, and we look forward to seeing what C-horse has in store for the future.
