The above and below photos are from a show the Condo Fucks played with the A-Bones at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans on April 27th.

At that gig, the A-Bones were joined by Roy Loney of the Flamin' Groovies. The next night, at the Ponderosa Stomp Festival, the A-Bones played as the backing band for Loney and Cyril Jordan (also of The Flamin' Groovies). That reunited combo comes to Maxwell's in Hoboken on July 23rd and Southpaw in Brooklyn on July 24th. Tickets for the Southpaw show and tickets for the Maxwell's gig are both on sale.

Coming up even sooner, A-Bones will celebrate the release of their record, Not Now! on Norton Records, with a boat cruise show around NYC on July 10th. Tickets are still available for that show.

Yo La Tengo currently have three shows booked. The band plays Primavera Sound Festival tonight (May 29th) in Barcelona. The band opens for Wilco at Brooklyn's Keyspan Park on Monday, July 13th (tickets still on sale for that) and plays Pitchfork Music Festival's "Set List by Request" night on July 17th.

Roy Loney and Cyril Jordan together with the A-Bones live is an absolutely essential rock 'n roll experience, saw them in NOLA, do not miss the NYC shows!

A-Bones' drummer Miriam Linna's blog walk down memory lane (she was the drummer in the Cramps for their first year or so and was part of the same Cleveland, Ohio scene that the Dead Boys and Pere Ubu came out of) is funny as hell and a must-read.

Do the Condo Fucks cover Yo La Tengo songs, or is do they write their own material?
