Special Guest 10:00
Keith TOTP & his Minor US Indie Celebrity All Star Backing Band 9:00 - DJ Eamon Hamilton (BrakesBrakesBrakes) 8:00
At first i thought, "do I really ever need to see Art Brut again?" Then I listened to the new album (Art Brut vs. Satan - out now on Downtown Records), and thought, "I really do want to see Art Brut again!", especially if again happens at a venue as small as Mercury Lounge.

As you can see above, tickets are still available for three of the five NYC shows. All dates HERE.

As you can also see above, the final night, now unfortunately sold out, seems to be the most special. Not only will it be the final night, but Keith TOTP means they're keeping it in the family ("Minor US Indie Celebrity All Star Backing Band" included), and "special guest" means, well... "Special Guest". If I could take one guess, my guess would be Art Brut 47 (aka We are Scientists), but that is just a guess.

A video diary of the recording of the new Art Brut album, with producer Frank Black (who by the way is playing the Siren Festival this year), is posted below...

TBA was on the bill for the Friday show, but got bumped to make room for Special Guest.

Art Brut has one song...with different lyrics

All the music I listen to is the best and I know more about music than you and I've been to so many great concerts that you never went to, so you suck and if you're too young to know about a great band then you suck and I still have LPs so that means you suck because you don't and I love social media even though I act anti-social on it.

Everybody sucks.

We can't play that week. We are doing a residency in Todd P's bathtub. Its going to be newly decorated with face pubes from the dude in USAISAWHOGIVESAFUCK.

I bet the "special guest" is the Hold Steady. They toured together before, and they're back in the city that monday. Jesustittyfuckingchrist that would be an epic show.

I would also titty-bang JC and his 12 buddies to see Craig w/ Eddie, and I don't care for JC or his 12 buddies.

Do not worry, fans. There are many more TBA shows coming up all summer long.

See you on the road!

Cheers,

"Art Brut has one song...with different lyrics"

hahahah, yes. i find it funny that dude trashed the stone roses a while ago--his band aren't half the musicians the stone roses ever were. pretentious amateur bullshit that relies on lyrics hipsters will think are cool to make up for the fact that they can't play or write for shit.

Art Brut are a fun band. Nothing groundbreaking but a good time!

Those "meh" jokes are getting to be about as stale as Jimmie Walker's stand-up routine.

Art Brut rocks. they may only have *one* song, but so did the Ramones and countless other bands. it's what you do with that song that makes or breaks any band. Eddie A is a great frontman
and the live show is always entertaining. so possibly not a great, great band, but certainly a very good one and c'mon how much *experimental* shit can you listen to? party punk is what they do best and sometimes it's just what the doctor ordered.

Nietzsche called the FDNY about Todd P's bathtub because he doesn't like competition.
