For the second and final concert of the Secret Generator Series from Levi's + Urban Outfitters, Neon Indian played a free show powered by a generator in an abandoned power plant in Boston. It was an amazing time, but if you didn't make it we've got you covered with video footage from our friends at Yours Tru.ly. Be sure to watch the footage from the Deerhunter show in Chicago here.
Over the past month, Urban Outfitters and Levi's put on two amazing free concerts as part of our Secret Generator Series. After announcing which cities the shows would be in, we kept the venue locations top secret until just days before each show. The first show was under an overpass in Chicago, where Deerhunter played a really fun and energetic set for the huge (and chilly) crowd that showed up. Watch the video shot by our friends Yours Tru.ly to see what an all-around good time it was, and check out photos from the Neon Indian show that happened a few days later in Boston.
This Sunday was the finale of the Levi's + UO Secret Generator Series, with an amazing concert from Neon Indian at the Power Station in Boston. The generator-powered show's location was kept under wraps until just days before it happened, but a great group of people kept up with our picture clues so they could catch Alan and his band in the chilly weather and grab UO gift cards. We'll post videos soon, and be sure to check out what went down at the Deerhunter show in Chicago here.
Neon Indian is playing a free concert somewhere in Boston this Sunday, but we can't tell you where until tomorrow. We can tell you the show is powered by a generator, so it could happen almost anywhere. This is a picture clue of the venue– if you recognize it, tell everyone still trying to figure it out on our Facebook page. Then, check back tomorrow for the official announcement and we'll fill you in on the details.
Neon Indian is Alan Palomo, a Texas native whose joke band eventually became a real, and a really successful, one. Neon Indian's track "6669" is featured on LSTN #11, and is also playing this Sunday's Secret Generator Series show in Boston. We caught with Palomo recently, right after he'd picked up keys to his new apartment in Brooklyn.
Our Deerhunter show was way too much fun, but we still have one more Secret Generator concert to go! Neon Indian will be playing a free, generator-powered show this Sunday somewhere in Boston– you just have to figure out where. We'll be ripping photo hints from our video footage of the venue all week, so check back here for more clues and join the discussion on Facebook and Twitter.
