Watch: Dean Wareham plays Galaxie 500’s ‘Fourth of July’ on the Fourth of July

In a bit of holiday synchronicity, former Galaxie 500 frontman Dean Wareham today shared video of himself and some fellow musicians performing his old band’s melancholy 1990 song “Fourth of July” on the Fourth of July itself (“4th of July on 4th of July,” he wrote).

Wareham posted the dimly lit, black-and-white clip on his Instagram this afternoon. Given the timing, there’s a good chance he’s rehearsing for his upcoming one-off performance of Galaxie 500’s Today in San Francisco at the end of next week — although “Fourth of July” does not appear on that record.

Below, check out the new performance of “Fourth of July” — and the original video.
