There were five bands on the bill Sunday night, including Lightning Bolt, Deerhoof, Wolf Eyes, Thurston Moore with Carlos Giffoni, and 5ive (not the British boy band). The incomparable Lightning Bolt was the highlight of the show, opting to do their set on the floor on the right side of the club instead of the stage, actually cutting off the final song of Deerhoof’s set. Rock. Deerhoof was the only other band that really grabbed me, partly because of the singer’s vague resemblance to my friend Kim, and mostly because of their performance: song structures would slowly and suspensefully unravel to the point of totally falling apart, at which point it would snap back together into a distorted sort of indie-pop thing. That doesn’t quite sum it up, but whatever.
