In what was a rather unusual billing for ‘heavy and loud’ venue Saint Vitus, Marissa Nadler and Dutch Jim Jarmusch collaborator Jozef van Wissem graced the blackened Greenpoint stage with a night of fragile bliss. Video edits of both performances are posted below.
Last Saturday, Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, Rival Schools) played a solo set at Saint Vitus’s “Hurrican Sandy Relief Benefit”. Amongst the songs performed was “Delusional” from his Quicksand catalog. Video is below.
On Saturday, Into Another played a 60 minute warm up show at Saint Vitus in preparation for their headlining slot at “Revelation Records 25 Festival” at Irving Plaza on Sunday. Watch a video edit of the intimate Greenpoint outing below.
In what might have been the single most awesome show of the year, the eruptive forces unleashed last night by On the Might of Princes at Saint Vitus equaled a category 5 hurricane. Watch the beginning and end of their set below, plus footage from surprise guest Garrison.
Last night, Saint Vitus (the band) played Saint Vitus (the song) at Saint Vitus (the venue). Check out a 25 minute video edit of the one and a half hour long show below. It includes the songs “Dying Inside”, “Saint Vitus”, “War Is Our Destiny”, “The Bleeding Ground” and “White Stallions”. Clips of openers Weedeater and Sourvein can be found after the jump.
After Riot Fest at Williamsburg Park was cancelled due to the tornado that hit the city, Descendents and Hot Water Music headed over to Saint Vitus to play a free and intimate show. 20 minutes after the show was announced, 800 people clogged the sidewalk in front of the small Greenpoint bar. 300 (give or take) made it in. The show of course was nuts. Watch video edits of both sets below.
Last Friday Deafheaven and Indian Jewelry co-headlined the Pitchfork/Weird Northside Festival showcase at Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint. While knowing well in advance what kind of blistering sonic bliss to expect from Deafheaven, Indian Jewelry’s strobe infused tribaldelia won us over by complete surprise. Check out some videos from the show below.
