Peter Bjorn and John @ Red Eye Fly, 3/14/07

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Drew Barrymore's favorite new band, the Swedish trio Peter Björn and John, filled the Red Eye Fly this afternoon as the headliners for the Little Radio barbecue. Hipsters were lined up down the street in the drizzle getting their lo-tops muddy in the puddles, and to be honest, the boys might be super sweet but their music isn't meant for a live crowd. It's mellow, introspective, and not at all partying.

The whistle song, "Young Folks" was the only thing that got the kids excited but because they had to wait so long to get it and because they were so smooshed into the Red River Road club that they couldn't get any beers, hardly anyone danced.

But LAist was there to record the song for you so crank it up real loud and enjoy it there in your home.

Tonight we're headed to the Dim Mak party being headlined by Har Mar Superstar so we plan on busting with our '70s disco moves, so look out!
