The thing about watching Deerhunter play live (on this video in Manchester, UK, which is so far away from the East Coast of the US, both in mind space and physical miles/meters) is that it's all strum strum downstroke and smoky eyed buzz. This looks easy and fun. Are you allowed to be the now Velvet Underground with tape on your face, zebra print and an Orioles T-shirt? Check the fingertapping six and a half minutes deep, it will make you feel like a loser for not fingertapping.
