new White Denim video :: "shake shake shake"
Here's the brand new, appropriately filthy clip for White Denim's next UK single, "Shake Shake Shake." Directed by Tom Haines and starring a ragtag crew of South London junkyard-dwellers, the clip does a stellar job of capturing the dirty party vibe of the song. Also, the destructive little pyromaniac mullet kid is a badass:

We're still enjoying the amazing weather here in Chicago, and we'll have a bunch of photos from the fest on Monday (in the meantime, check out Stereogum's excellent coverage). Highlights for us so far, with one day left to go: four new songs(!) from Grizzly Bear, Spank Rock's cartoonishly raunchy bump-n-grind session with Amanda Blank, a drunken early afternoon romp from the Black Lips, and an inspired performance by Broken Social Scene (sans Feist, but Amy Millan more than made up for her absence). And of course, Radiohead's set -- complete with perfectly timed, apparently completely coincidental fireworks -- was an unforgettable event for the roughly 100K people in attendance. Plagenhoef makes some valid points in his assessment of the show, but still, it was Radiohead at dusk with the Chicago skyline as their backdrop, so it was pretty amazing. One lowlight: the scene got more than a little out of control during Rage Against the Machine, and Zach DeLaRocha spent a good part of their stop-and-start set literally begging kids not to crush each other. On another Rage-related note, we also caught Tom Morello leading the Cubs faithful in a rousing rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley this afternoon. Finally, Lindsay Lohan and Slash.
