Divine Fits Hit Webster Hall Sunday NightOctober 19th, 2012
How often have you had a conversation with someone at a concert about doing something in the future that never came to fruition? Fortunately, when Spoon frontman Britt Daniel ran into Wolf Parade guitarist Dan Boeckner at a show, their discussion of forming a band together didn’t fall by the wayside. Sure, it took a little bit of time, but the payoff—joining together with New Bomb Turks drummer Sam Brown to form Divine Fits—was more than worth it. With the help of Alex Fischel on keys, the trio put out an album, the very well-received A Thing Called Divine Fits (stream it below), in late August. And despite this seeming like it could be a one-off experience, Pitchfork says Bockener and Daniel say it’s an ongoing project “and rock fans should hope they stick to their promise.” But even if they don’t, you can still see Divine Fits (above, playing “My Love Is Real” for Studio Q) at Webster Hall on Sunday.
