Earlier this week, Pitchfork posted the above, Ray Concepcion-filmed clip of Neon Indian performing its Demi Lovato-approved "Deadbeat Summer" up in New York City at the Brooklyn Bowl. It makes for a fine visual, what with all the bowling balls and pins, etc.

But, more than that, the performance, which comes as part of the site's Tunnel Vision series and also features two more clips of the band performing (for the songs "Terminally Chill" and "Should've Taken Acid With You"), serves as a fine example of just how far the band has come as performers. Trust me, you haven't seen Alan Palomo brood until you've seen him brood with people in ugly shoes awkwardly watching him.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
