fancy new art & Times New Viking @ Market Hotel (c89)
Times New Viking

"So, just to get this out of the way: Market Hotel's new art installations make for some fucking awesome background shots. A bit less 'punk'/'DIY' than before, but way more art school dropout/middle school play about the inside of your stomach." [DARKWAVEVAWKRADARKWAVE]
Times New Viking played two NYC shows earlier this week: one on May 10th at the Market Hotel with Blues Control and Pink Reason, and another May 11th at the Bowery Ballroom with Vivian Girls and Stupid Party. MusicSnobbery said, the Bowery show "was a triple dose of low-to-no-fi garage rock as all the bands on the bill had three members."

With those gigs gone, the Bell House has announced that TNV is the "secret guest" at the Agit Reader's one-year anniversary celebration at the Brooklyn venue on Saturday, June 13th. Other acts include Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, the Mad Scene and El Jesus de Magico. Tickets are on sale.

Blues Control, who played with TNV on Sunday the 10th, has a short weekend tour coming up and NYC shows scheduled. Those include a Thursday, May 21st show at Coco 66 with Thrones, Lake and Popped Blimp; a Northside Fest appearance at the Shank with Kurt Vile, Grooms, Woods and Pygmy Shrews; and a set on June 21st at Goodbye Blue Monday's Make Music NY festivities. A new LP/CD from Blues Control is due in July on Siltbreeze.

One of Blues Control's last NYC shows was an opening gig for Animal Collective at NYC's Grand Ballroom in January. (FYI: Animal Collective is back in town now.)

Awesome! More flammable material, that's always a great idea. Why don't they just go ahead and book Great White since that is the path they are going down.

There are bands that spend more time on stage in one show than these guys do in a whole tour. And I say this as a fan.

Time to step it up TNV!

Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments?! Awesomeness. Are they touring, or is this a one-off favor thing?

Posted by J | May 13, 2009 6:30 PM

I think the band is a side project of our beloved TBA.

There once was a band in Orlando called New Roman Times, a name that is more creative than Times New Viking.

and your point is...?

The Slave Apartments are friends and are playing our anniversary shows, the one in Brooklyn and one in Columbus on June 11 (TNV is playing that one too). No tour as far as I know.

The set at the Market Hotel was 2x longer than the one at the Bowery.
