The Rapture's 2011 effort, In the Grace of Your Love, was one of the year's best, a fact that the NYC dance rockers recently underscored for an exclusive downtown NYC crowd at SPIN & Ray-Ban's Flip Out event, held during the CMJ Music Marathon. Check out three performances from their gig below, featuring two songs off Grace plus "Killing," a classic from the band's 2003 debut, Echoes.

"The Rapture ... packed their usual set into a shorter, tauter one that was pretty much all fireworks," said SPIN contributor Michelangelo Matos in his live review. "Spanning all three of the band's albums, it showcased the New Yorkers as an effortless party unit."

Enjoy the videos below, and browse our photo gallery from Flip Out, featuring photos of the Rapture, plus fellow performers Crystal Castles and A-Trak.
