Tanlines at the Whitney Museum

Given how encores are practically compulsory during concerts, it's refreshing to see an actual encore. Tanlines were caught very off-guard when the crowd insisted on one more song after a fantastic set at the Whitney Museum of American Art. I'm glad I caught a summer gig at a museum before the end of the season. (Free museum admission is wonderful, as well.)
Taken for Brooklyn Vegan. DJ/rupture closed the evening. More photos there soon.
EDIT: Check out the rest of the photos here.

Crystal Castles at Terminal 5

Canadian electronic glitch-rock duo Crystal Castles lists "murder, blank looks on girls, knives" as influences. I'll leave you with that thought! For House List. Few more here.

The Dead Weather at Prospect Park Bandshell

The first time I saw the Dead Weather was at their debut concert at Bowery Ballroom. Though the venue last Tuesday was ten times as huge, the guys (and girl) were just as immediate and impressive in this space. A lot more photos at House List, the Bowery Presents blog.
