The official closing band on Saturday at FPSF was the Postal Service, but for those of us who know how much even mellow indie-rock like the fare played by Ben Gibbard et al. owes to Detroit madman Iggy Pop, he and his Stooges were the climax of the day’s events.

A crowd gathered around the Neptune Stage to pay tribute to the grandfather of punk and as soon as he stepped onto the stage, we went through a time machine. Though he looked his generation, his voice told a different story, screeching out just as powerfully and dangerously as it had 40 years earlier. [Houston Press]

Houston’s Free Press Summer Festival kicked off yesterday (6/1) with sets from The Postal Service, Arctic Monkeys, Passion Pit, Iggy & The Stooges, Alabama Shakes, A Place to Bury Strangers and more. Pictures of those (and other) bands are in this post.

Arctic Monkeys have been playing a new song, “Do I Wanna Know?,” at their recent shows, and if you haven’t checked that out yet, you can watch a video of them debuting it in California last month, along with more FPSF pictures, below…
