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.
