Live: Ty Segall Brings the Thunder

The Well, the huge new outdoor concert venue located in the nether-zone where Williamsburg turns into Bushwick and real estate agents might reply: "Which neighborhood would you like it to be in?", hosted one of its biggest shows to date this Friday night. Ty Segall, San Francisco rock n' roll hearththrob of the moment, was in town to highlight his late-summer record Slaughterhouse, bask in the lingering warm feelings from his split album with White Fence also out this year, and tease the arrival of Twins which is out, improbably, in the next month or so. Ty Segall: taking the apocalypse longshot seriously, and not fucking around in 2012. Not even a little.

The set, which found a sweet middle zone between youthful garage rock flippancy and sarcastic grunge crunch, got a young crowd extremely excited. Moshing was instant and ongoing. Even through the total bummer of a flash rainstorm that had half the crowd straining to hear at the edge of the covered bar out of sight, soaked crowd-surfers continued to pop up, move sideways through an umbrella slalom.

Photographer Devon Banks was there, taking snapshots before and after the deluge. Check out the damp, yet rocking slideshow that follows...
