The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a review of the show:

You know what you’re going to get from Dean & Britta (Phillips) and it’s always good and Velvety. He put his psych guitar tone on surfy rocker “Paraphernalia” (Susan Bottomly dancing with a whip) and “Where Did Everyone Go?” to accompany Nico eating a banana (seductively, of course) with Antoine in front of the iconic Warhol/VU banana logo. The couple went a few shades darker for the black-and-white “Kiss the Boot,” which had poet/filmmaker Gerard Malanga lying submissively at the feet of Warhol superstar Mary Woronov.

The show, which also features Martin Rev (Suicide) and Tom Verlaine plays at Royce Hall, Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, Los Angeles on Friday (24th October) and then BAM in NYC from the 6th to the 8th of November.

Drowned in Sound has a review of the weekend that pretty much nails Dean’s Saturday night set…

Wareham then returns for a set largely consisting of relics from his back catalogue and it’s possibly the highlight of the entire weekend. Sounding in good voice, the likes of ‘Snowstorm’, ‘When Will You Come Home’ and ‘Strange’ genuinely reduce grown men to tears, whilst ‘Fourth Of July’ orchestrates the closest thing to a mosh pit Indietracks will ever see.

Dean Wareham
Day three of my three day fanboy traipse around the bottom half of England is closer to home at the Islington Assembly Hall. Apologies in advance for the rambly, mess that this post is, feel free to skip my nonsense and look at the pictures!

Last night, I organised a pre-gig meet-up for coffee and a chat in a café over the road from the venue and a bunch of really lovely folk turned up to kick off a remarkable evening. It was lovely to meet you all (or meet you again to the few I’d met before).

We headed into the venue in time for the support act. The Islington Assembly Hall is a big room, it turns out, too big for Dean Wareham tonight. The venue decided not to open the balcony and instead had put tables around the edge of the hall which were “reserved for people with balcony tickets”!

Support was the lovely Darren Hayman, formerly of Hefner who had arrived with an array of synths, drum machine and a keyboard and played a short but sweet set for the small audience. I think he was relieved when it was over.
