Watch 6 Songs From Luna’s First Concert In 10 Years
The gauzy New York guitar band Luna never seemed to burst with importance, the way Luna frontman Dean Wareham’s previous band Galaxie 500 did. But Luna were just a ridiculously good band in ways that never really demanded attention. If you ever saw them live, you witnessed the way they could just sort of melt together. Earlier this year, they announced a reunion. And last night, they played their first American show in about a decade at the Echo in L.A. Someone in the crowd caught a pretty good portion of the set on camera, and below, you can watch fan-made video of the band playing six songs: “Slide,” “California (All The Way),” “Friendly Advice,” “Slash Your Tires,” “Moon Palace,” and the band’s great cover of Beat Happening’s “Indian Summer.” Watch all six below.
Luna will tour Spain later this month, and more U.S. shows will follow.
