The New Deal – Electric Factory – 5.5.11

The New Deal is out on tour for what may be their last ride as a band.  Dan Kurtz, Darren Shearer and Jaime Shields are calling it quits.  They stopped into Philadelphia on Cinco De Mayo early on the spring leg of the tour.  Like a precision timepiece, they delivered another fine set of the most liberal break beat electronic music going.  The band constructed massive cathedrals of trance inducing sounds that the crowd danced passionately to.  The inside of the Electric Factory embraced these friendly Canadians and the end of an amazing 12 year run.  The New Deal finished showing the same creative gusto and fire that I first saw them with at the Khyber Pass so many years earlier with the highlight being a huge “Octobong>J>Octobong”.  Peep the video and images below to see The New Deal rage at the Electric Factory.
