FYF Fest 2011: Video clips of Dan Deacon and Nosaj Thing

Dan Deacon at FYF Fest

In the later evening hours of Saturday's FYF Fest at Los Angeles State Historic Park downtown, I started snapping iPhone shots of artists to try and capture a sense of the moments. But I unknowingly triggered the video camera and began shooting split-second videos of a few artists during their performances.

So Sunday morning when unloading the camera, these tiny, boiled-to-the-essence clips popped up that capture moments in time. Are they instructive? Perhaps. Below is Nosaj Thing in an epic 3-second snippet.

Frantic 2-second video of Dan Deacon leading the crowd in a thrilling set of serialist house (or was it Motorik-tech?):


A full review of Saturday's FYF Fest, which saw inspired performances by, among many others, Deacon, Cults, Strange Boys, the Descendents and the Chromatics, will arrive shortly.
