We’re still not sure why singer Jamie Stewart was folding his left wrist like that for the entire set, but Xiu Xiu and Deerhoof’s full rendition of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures was a pretty great way to start this summer’s Pool Parties. “She’s Lost Control” was the highlight (thanks for the video unartig) to a fun day in the sun. We were happy to see that Roberta’s and the Meat Hook were added as vendors. And left utterly perplexed by the fact that people seemed to enjoy the band Why? Why indeed! We’re already looking forward to next week’s lineup.
