Pattern is Movement
Pattern is MovementPattern is Movement

Tonight's show was supposed to be at Studio B and was supposed to have The Jealous Girlfriends on the bill (August 20). Instead, Pattern is Movement, Jukebox the Ghost, Bryan Scary and "a very special unannounced guest" (not Sarah Silverman) are playing at Le Royale on 7th Ave in Manhattan. Is the special guest The Jealous Girlfriends or is it The XYZ Affair or is it somebody completely different? I don't know.

On September 10th, Pattern is Movement kick of a tour in Canada and keep going through October when they eventually meet up with the reunited Shudder to Think to play a few shows including the October 4th one at Webster Hall. The Jealous Girlfriends are also on that bill. Less than a week later The Jealous Girlfriends go out on tour with the Wedding Present. That tour does not currently include the two NYC WP shows. All PIM and TJG tour dates (and the Le Royale flyer) below...

where's the confirmation that it's the xyz affair? can someone post whatever jukebox the ghost has said (myspace bulletin maybe?)...

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2008 3:34 PM

I will make the Boston show if it kills me.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2008 3:52 PM

It's The XYZ Affair for sure. At least I hope it is, because I'm in The XYZ Affair and was planning on playing. Hope you guys can make it!

what celebrity is going to post here next?

pattern is movemnet = two fat bearded AWESOME slobs.

They're great. Really. Who cares what the look like? Would you rather they look like hipsters and play crappy "indie" rock tunes?

Jukebox the Ghost, on the other hand, not so great.

Arguably they do look like hipsters and play indie rock tunes

These guys are GREAT!! .. sadly not gonna make it tonight ..

i'd go if pattern is movement wasn't playing with such a weak line up. these guys are great live.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2008 6:53 PM

they're hardly hipsters in the skinny jean wearing girlie haircut kind of way. plus their music tends to fall on the more experimental side than the indie pop rock side.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2008 10:47 PM

patter was great, per usual.

i found the other two bands before them to be a tad juvenile.

Posted by Anonymous | August 21, 2008 9:46 AM

pattern is movement was ok last night... They are a great band, but I don't think it was the right room for them at all

I actually really enjoyed both jukebox the ghost and the xyz affair. Both bands seem to have a lot of fun with no stupid Hipster pretension.

Did anyone stay for Bryan scary? Were they any good?

Posted by anon | August 21, 2008 11:46 AM

those guys love pita pizza and utz potato chips, and they're one of the best live bands out there.

Posted by Anonymous | August 21, 2008 1:41 PM

jukebox the ghost and the xyz affair killed it last night. definitely a good pairing and that spring tour must've been pretty good.

Pattern is Movement are excellent.
Philadelphia is nice.

Posted by Agent Mulder | August 21, 2008 2:04 PM

There was a lot of wall street gaybags there. I agree that Pattern should do a Todd show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2008 4:20 PM

Great music and cute guys. 'Nuff said.

Posted by Christian | September 2, 2008 12:23 PM

These guys can dance like nobodys business and rap better then you, so yal can eat it.
