Jarvis Cocker/Little Joy @ The Wiltern, Los Angeles 7/27/09

Despite not being sold-out -- maybe a little surprising? -- and joking he was "knackered" and grabbng for water after opening with "Angela," Jarvis put all of himself into last night's show at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. There were jumps and dance moves. He even did the worm. (Really.) Opening the night were Little Joy, the band best known as a Strokes side-project, playing without the Stroke in the project. Apparently Fab is off making a record with Nickel Eye and that Phrazes For The Young guy and etc.? Photographer Andrew Youssef kindly files these photos. And on the Jarvis front, here's a cool remix of "You're In My Eyes (Discosong)" by Pilooski. - Source
