Grunge-garage duo Deap Vally held their Royal Jelly music video release party last night in Downtown LA’s artsy loft style venue Basic Flowers.  Liphemra opened up the night leading into Deap Vally’s set which included surprise guests Mish Way of White Lung singing a duet with front woman Lindsey Troy and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs coming up to play guitar on another song. Did I mention drummer Julie Edwards is 8 months pregnant? Well, she is and she still killed it as per usual! With a band like Deap Vally it’s always guaranteed to be a good night.
