Video: The House of Love makes first live appearance in 4 years at Poland’s Off Festival

The House of Love — who have been largely dormant following a couple years’ worth of activity surrounding the release of 2005 reunion album Days Run Away — returned to the stage Friday night for the first time in four years, performing at the Off Festival in Katowice, Poland. We’ve been unable to dig up a setlist so far, but at least one clip has emerged, as seen above, of the band —still centered around frontman Guy Chadwick and guitarist Terry Bickers — performing “Road” off their 1988 self-titled album on Creation Records.

UPDATE 8/15/12: We’ve now got the full setlist posted below, courtesy of a Slicing Up Eyeballs reader who was at the show and grabbed it. Plus four more clips have surfaced, including footage of the show-closing “Shine On.”
