TV On The Radio fans shut out at London festival

Lykke Li also covers Vampire Weekend at Concrete And Glass

Hundreds of TV On The Radio fans were shut out of the band’s first UK gig for two years tonight (October 3).

Fans queued from 7pm (BST) outside the Cargo venue to see the Brooklyn band play as part of the Concrete And Glass festival after the venue was changed the day before due to licensing problems.

The band performed a set mixing new songs from their recently-released ‘Dear Science’ album, including ‘Love Dog’ and ‘Golden Age’, with tracks from their back catalogue.

At one point, band member Kyp Malone jokingly asked the crowd if they had any clean underwear and audience members duly threw clothes onto the stage.

The group finished their set with a techno-influenced version of ‘Staring At The Sun’.

Hollywood actress Mischa Barton was also spotted in the audience.

TV On The Radio played:

‘Love Dog’


‘Wrong Way’

‘Dancing Choose’

‘Golden Age’

‘Wolf Like Me’

‘Young Liars’

‘Blues From Down’


‘Dirty Whirl’

‘Shout Me Out’

‘Staring At The Sun’

Lykke Li performed earlier in the evening at Café 1001, and covered Vampire Weekend‘s ‘Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’ during her set, mixing the song into the refrain from her own ‘Dance Dance Dance’.

The Swedish singer drew heavily from her debut album ‘Youth Novels’ during her set, with songs ‘Little Bit’, ‘Dance Dance Dance’ and ‘Breaking It Up’ receiving the best reception.

Euros Childs played a half-hour set at the bustling 93 Feet East around 10pm (BST).

Accompanied by a drummer and bassist, the former Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci frontman showcased a number of tracks from his forthcoming ‘Cheer Gone’ album, including ballad ‘Saving Up To Get Married’.

Childs also played songs from his back catalogue, including ‘Henry A Matilda Supermarketsuper’, ‘Horse Riding’ and ‘Dawnsio Dros Y Mor’.

Before ‘Costa Rita’, Childs told the audience: “This song is inspired by an episode from season three of ‘Baywatch’, where the cousin of the character played by David Hasselhoff comes to stay.”

Let’s Wrestle kicked off proceedings at the Macbeth pub in Hoxton earlier in the evening.

The grungey trio performed songs including their signature tune ‘Let’s Wrestle’ and ‘Song For Old People’ at the busy pub.

Frontman Wesley Patrick Gonzalez even dedicated the latter to “everyone over 70 here”.
