Alex Zhang Hungtai is Dirty Beaches, and yes, I'm going to mention Elvis Presley, Nick Cave, and Suicide as filtered through a retro-futurist 50's guitar sound, as much as that may make some of you already familiar with his work cringe. Here's a Pitchfork interview for some background, but for me, I have to admit the way he combed his hair between songs frightened me greatly, as well as him jumping into the crowed during the middle of the second(!) song...but later on the set, he ended up terminating a song by accidentally stepping on his power supply, which he handled gracefully.
