HAIM have shared a video of their livestream album launch for their new record Women in Music Pt. III, which was released yesterday, from Los Angeles deli Canter’s. In addition to being the spot where director and frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson shot the band’s new album cover, HAIM also revealed that it was also the site of their very first ever show in 2000. Watch the 30-minute set, which included ‘Summer Girl’, ‘The Steps’, ‘Gasoline’, and more, below.
The livestream also served as a fundraiser for the Bail Project, a nonprofit organisation that offers bail money for people in need in an effort to fight against mass incarceration.
Back in March, the band went on a ‘deli tour’, playing in local delis in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver, and Los Angeles just before the pandemic hit in support of their new album. They are set to hit the online stage again in July, with a ticketed virtual show and Q&A alongside the album’s co-producers, Rostam Batmanglij and Ariel Rechtshaid. Proceeds from tickets sales will go to Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, which supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and aims to create a fairer society for all.
