Video(s) of the Moment #1219: Deap Vally

Unbeknowst to them, Los Angeles duo Deap Vally provided the best comic relief the night I covered the Fierce Panda 19th birthday party at London Scala starring the Crookes, the Heartbreaks and Hey Sholay on Tuesday 21 May. Now, I haven’t been to that many Crookes shows, but I’d been warned to expect in London that only girls were stood at the front of their gigs; having heard this, I thought it was very strange to see a lone bloke stood dead centre down the front.

After the Heartbreaks finished and left the stage, he asked me and my friend, “err…Deap Vally are next, right?” I had no idea what he was talking about; I tried to set him straight, saying, “no, the Crookes are on next. It’s a Fierce Panda show”. We found out later when he returned for the headphones he’d left onstage with us that security at the venue didn’t pay attention to the fact he had a ticket for the *next* night’s show headlined by Deap Vally and just let him in to this one instead. Surely he should have realised during Hey Sholay’s set that something was amiss? Take home message: always check and double-check your tickets, folks.

So anyway, in honour of the much needed comic relief between sets by this hapless Deap Valley fan, we’ve got for you the promo video for ‘Baby I Can Hell’ and the same song performed by the duo on Jools Holland in May.
