Diiv Plays BSP Lounge

July 14. Brooklyn indie band Diiv has certainly been rocking all right the blogs—Pitchfork, Altered Zones, etc., etc.—with its icy blend of shoegazey post-punk psych. Signed to the Captured Tracks label, the trio, which here plays BSP Lounge, began as a side project of singer-guitarist / fashion model Zachary Cole Smith's other outfit, the arguably poppier Beach Fossils. According to the group's own blog, Diiv is "gonna be doing a short, intimate US tour in July to work out a bunch of new songs before we [finish] recording them this summer. Smaller venues always means crazier shows, but it also means these are all gonna sell out fast so buy tix in advance. We're gonna be joined by Regal Degal and Lodro, literally the two best NYC bands right now. New stage show, but still our same old clothes." So now you know. (Justin Townes Earle sings July 5; Midlake plays acoustic August 1.) 9pm. $15, $20. Kingston. (845) 481-5158; Bspkingston.com.
