Video: Divine Fits play their first show


    Divine Fits’ first ever concert was scheduled for tonight at Beerland in Britt Daniel’s hometown of Austin, TX. But last night, the super group performed a surprise show at Austin’s Continental Club, as Ultra8201 reports. Daniel, Dan Boeckner, and Sam Brown appeared under the moniker The Hot Skull, and performed a 12 song set which included cuts off their debut LP A Thing Called the Divine Fits, along with a cover of Tom Petty’s “You Got Lucky”. Below, you can watch fan footage of “My Love Is Real”, “Flaggin A Ride”, and “You Got Lucky”.

    And here’s the setlist (via Ultra8201):
