Voxtrot (featuring Tosca String Quartet), Au Revoir Simone & Favourite Sons play Webster Hall in NYC on June 15th. Tickets are still on sale, and I've got two pairs to give away to two lucky winners who e-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Voxtrot) by June 5, 2007 @ noon, and tell me the name of at least one Voxtrot member's side project. Include your first and last name. Winners will be picked and notified via email.

Ramesh @ Prospect Park - performing "Steven" for the first time (MORE)
Voxtrot's Ramesh

Thank God for Largehearted Boy because otherwise I would have went the entire Voxtot release week (the OTHER release last week) without pointing out that Voxtrot's brand new self-titled Playlouder (Beggars) debut came out. But I'm glad I waited because now not only am I mentioning it, but I get to premiere this here brand new nifty video for the song "Steven".....

The footage for the 'Steven' video was shot during the band's fall 2006 tour, with the live shots from a show at the Bowery Ballroom in early November. The footage was shot by the band and Elizabeth Skadden (who filmed the Reaching For The Lasers documentary). The video was edited by John Carlucci.

This is the first video from the band's debut on PlayLouderecordings. They just finished shooting their second video in Austin with Martin Wallace (Pulp, Tindersticks, Nick Cave) for the second single called, "Firecracker".

I also like this video because - for whatever reason - I remember perfectly Ramesh & Co. playing the new song ('Steven') for the very first time - live right here in Brooklyn at Prospect Park. It was the first time I saw the change in direction the band was taking - another side of Ramesh?. The song has been vividly in my memory ever since. What does this all mean? I don't know.

Voxtrot is on tour as we speak.

Ryspace has a recording of the Prospect Park show - I just saw them play in LA and the show was fantastic. The crowds are changing (and expanding) but the band is playing better than ever... thanks for the video!

hello, I know that you're busy but thought I'd ask anyway...

I'm a regular reader of this blog and am going to Buenos Aires for a holiday (from Perth, Australia) but can't find any blogs or sites that tell me who might be touring there in the next month. Do you have any ideas on where I can go?
