HEALTH/Pictureplane @ The Troubadour, Los Angeles 9/9/09

HEALTH and Pictureplane make for logical tour partners. They’re Lovepump labelmates, and bands to watch, and they both find creative ways to fuck with their love for making people dance. (Or at least, move.) They kicked off a month of shows together at the Troubadour in Los Angeles the other night, with Dam Funk and Mi Ami as the early openers. Pro tip: This will be a good tour to see. HEALTH always rule live, but after their time opening up Nine Inch Nails’ Wave Goodbye, they might have learned a new trick or two. In fact, just the night before this Troubadour show they joined NIN, Jane’s Addiction’s Eric Avery, and Gary Numan on a cover of Gang Of Four’s “Anthrax” at the Henry Fonda. So they learned that new trick at least. Here’s video of that (hello, big tag set), along with the 9/9/09 HEALTH/Pictureplane pictures by Andrew Youssef.
