LA's Low vs. Diamond are going on a co-headlining tour with Strokes basssit Nikolai Fraiture's band Nickel Eye, but not before each of them play their own respective NYC shows this week. For Nickel Eye it's an opening slot at the Raveonettes show happening this Friday at Webster Hall (1/16). For Low vs. Diamond it's a headlining show at The Bell House in Brooklyn, tonight, January 15, 2009, with The Subjects.

The Subjects' other upcoming shows include a bunch of opening spots for Tapes n Tapes in February. That includes the dates at both Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. Wild Light is playing both of those shows too.

Nickel Eye will release their debut album "The Time of the Assassins" on January 27, 2009 via Ryko. Their last NYC shows were during CMJ. They played one at Pianos, and another one with Late of the Pier at Music Hall of Williamsburg. More pictures from the latter, and all tour dates, below...

I received a couple of promo copies of the Nickel Eye album. Not good at all.

LvD is surprisingly good. Better than when they were called Colored Shadows for sure.

i actually kinda like it.. dont know the name but that "back from exile" song is pretty goodd

god, low vs diamond. nikolai's music is nothing special, but its not nearly the depths of low vs diamond crap. poor guy doesnt need to lower himself that low, he was in the strokes after all. low vs diamond is opening for the all american rejects people. get your heads straight before you praise this band.

lvd opening for the all american rejects means nothing. they're given the gigs they're given so they can pay rent. they couldn't be less like the all american rejects. you're way off base dude.

and they truly are surprisingly good. just go see them live. they're just a good rock n roll band. not really trying to be anything but that. why is that awful?

LVD is an incredible band... Amazing melodies and really deep, poetic lyrics.

"dude", there are plenty of ways to pay your rent without opening for the fucking all american rejects, the epitome of everything wrong with music today.

lvd isnt bad, its just bland rock pap. and as for poeticism, every song has the lyric "im nothing without you" or "im so sorry" or "youre hurting me" in some form. sounds like a britpop hangover in the worst way.
