Polvo! Suh-weet.

Superchunk? Polvo and Obits? Fucking awesome!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 2:33 PM

TBA, another wonderful product of the hipster machine. God, I can't believe they actually have a following, especially when they don't even play any instruments. Their new album is total garbage, far from the "album of the year" most of these idiots are claiming.

Why the fuck are you hating on TBA?! It's a free show. If you don't like it you don't have to go, asshole!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 2:44 PM

What time does TBA go on!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 2:49 PM

How does TBA get booked on all the best shows? Must be sleeping with Todd P.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 2:50 PM

Door's Open is another great band that gets booked frequently.

I'm shocked that TBA weren't on the L Magazine's list of bands to watch in 2009. I guess that just goes to show how irrelevant and out of touch the L Magazine is.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:02 PM

L MEHgazine?

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:07 PM

haha. now someone is actually gonna start a band called TBA.

Posted by You funny. | May 7, 2009 3:08 PM

superchunk is always a good time, stoked!

Posted by scott | May 7, 2009 3:08 PM

guys, guys, i think TBA actually stands for "to be confirmed"--not a band at all!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:09 PM

Ha ha to Superchunk a week after the Pains.

Posted by hornblower | May 7, 2009 3:09 PM

In one year TBA will be back selling out Terminal 5 and we'll see how many of you "fans" still like their bullshit "mystery."

I was a fan of TBA before you were.

I heard rumor that Wizard Dick was opening for TBA at the August 14th show.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:16 PM

I'm over With. it's like every show is the same.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:17 PM

I'm over TBA.

Posted by ROCK STARchitect | May 7, 2009 3:17 PM

very funny 3:11.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:19 PM

What's not funny is that N/A was left out of the TBA show.

of course, their site hasn't been updated since 1992 (and it looks it)

i saw wizard dick (on a ton of shrooms) open for the invisible bladiators at cake shop before they invented christmas lights

Posted by Katzenjammer | May 7, 2009 3:30 PM

You mean they didn't want to name their band after their bassist, Skippy Shadowleaf?

BTW, I saw Alfy Sperling doing coke off Todd P at dba last week. Did anyone else catch that????

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:30 PM


when is the LMEHgazine suck-fest of "new" bands coming on?

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:32 PM

Polvo vs Obits should kick anyone's tits in. If they're titted that is.

Posted by wingwalker77 | May 7, 2009 3:34 PM

@ 3:09: To Be Confirmed is also a terrible band. 'natch.

Looking forward to these - there should be some shows in June as well, right?

Posted by Roland | May 7, 2009 3:34 PM


TBA? I'd hit it.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 3:47 PM

TBA rocks. Saw them in 93 in a loft in wisconsin

SUPERCHUNK!

Pitchfork gave the new TBA record an 8.5 out of 10!

I saw the bassist of TBA in a bagel shop on bedford avenue. He is so hideous!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 4:09 PM

i hope TBA gets added to the superchunk show

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 4:12 PM

Heard a rumor that TBA and MEH were opening for Daft Punk this summer..can anyone confirm?

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 4:19 PM

why would TBA be added to the superchunk show? they are HEADLINING their own show at the same venue a few weeks later.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 4:20 PM

Maye TBA will turn out to be Creed..they are back bitches!!!

TBA just rented all of the Market Hotel rooms and have 100 percent control of the event booking.

I hope they book pow wow!

Posted by ROCK STARchitect | May 7, 2009 4:47 PM

TBA rocked Nietzsche's Bathtub a few years ago - legendary show.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 4:56 PM

I hear that TBA sold their guitars and bought turntables.

Posted by Dan | May 7, 2009 4:59 PM

My favorite band from when I was 17 and 18 is playing on my 35th birthday. Man, nothing's changed.

Posted by cr | May 7, 2009 5:11 PM

TBA plays more shows than Vivian Girls.

Well, except for the 50 pounds you've gained, the loss of your hairline, and the realization that you'll never amount to anything.

TBA is losing their edge

Posted by ROCK STARchitect | May 7, 2009 7:09 PM

na, i prefer t'n'a.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 7:36 PM

I hate to break it to you guys, but I have it on good authority that TBA are breaking up soon. The rigors of the road have proven to be too much for them, what with concert promoters giving their time slots away to other bands at the last minute and all.


Posted by TBA Fan Club | May 7, 2009 7:45 PM

this lineup isnt as good as years past

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 7:47 PM

TBA is playing with Extra Life, Yeah Yeah Yeahs,and Hot Hot chip fest, so skip the other 4 shows you were going to that night and put on your tight pants, fixie Vans shoes,funny cap goofy time hat, and come on down. Call in sick to your "graphic arts" job at Heavy for this one you genetic star on the gene pool kids.

Daft Punk plays at 10pm July 3rd after Timmies beard shot at the loft.Special guest is Trust fund Dummies.
Someone above had to give it away. Watch out when these 24 year olds are 32 and in super groups.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 7:51 PM

TBA just added three sets to Siren.

Anyone know when the TBA reunion tour "Forever A Mystery" kicks off?

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 8:20 PM

TBA totally fucked their way to the top. Good for them.

Whoa. Guys.

Have you seen the list of TBA's 2010 tour dates yet?

Those dudes are INSANE

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 8:41 PM

T from TBA is doing a DJ set at Webster Hall tonight.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 8:42 PM

Ok so we have Superchunk and Polvo. Someone please call Archers Of Loaf and tell them play the final show.

TBA is already on sale for $1 in the bargain bin.

TBA - not as good as T&A.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2009 10:51 PM

TBA just rock dudes, i love them hard. Crazy for their music...

Posted by Music Downloads | May 8, 2009 12:24 AM

Every time I go to see TBA in concert, they get replaced by some crappy band last minute. Sometimes I feel like I am never going to get to see them live.

Posted by Kurt C. | May 8, 2009 9:20 AM

TBA goes to eleven

It sucks that TBA is playing all of these super big venues now. I liked it a lot better when they were playing Silent Barn and Cake Shop. Oh well...good for them.

Posted by Anonymous | May 8, 2009 3:16 PM

TBA are a bunch of Trust Fund Hipsters!

Posted by Anonymous | May 9, 2009 1:15 PM

TBA's tour schedule for this summer is all over the map. Literally. I don't know how they keep up the pace. Mad props to them.

Posted by Anonymous | May 9, 2009 1:28 PM

I love how only a year ago everyone was hyping up TBA like they were the most amazing thing, and now that they're big you can't like them anymore. Fucking hipsters.

Posted by Anonymous | May 9, 2009 1:57 PM

TBA does an insane cover of John Cage's 4'33".

Posted by gokinsmen | May 10, 2009 7:40 PM

TBA just posted some new jams on myspace.

SHIT HOT

Posted by Anonymous | May 10, 2009 8:04 PM

I dunno...I mean, I LOVE the guys from TBA and all...but Cage's original 4'33" is definitely the superior of the two, in my humble opinion.

Posted by Anonymous | May 10, 2009 8:05 PM

wrong myspace. this is the correct one:

http://www.myspace.com/tbamusicnyc


Posted by Anonymous | May 10, 2009 8:15 PM

@Anon8:15 - Kudos to whomever was able to put together a spoof MySpace profile page based on this TBA comic thread so quickly! And how on earth was that person able to get over 300 other pages, including many well known indie bands, venues and promoters to "accept" them as friends in just a few days?!? Impressive and probably created by a well-known scenester, promoter or musician.

Posted by blackhat | May 10, 2009 8:29 PM

TBA...Fuck Yeah!!!

Posted by Anonymous | May 10, 2009 9:10 PM

I hear DJ Shadow sampled TBA on Endtroducing

Posted by Petey Menz | May 10, 2009 9:58 PM

Pitchfork once said that TBA were the most sampled band in music history. Then again, it was Pitchfork, so take it with a grain of salt.

Posted by Anonymous | May 10, 2009 10:21 PM

TBA haters probably live someplace like Marietta, GA.

Posted by losers | May 11, 2009 11:51 AM

dude, have you heard the soulwax remix of the latest TBA song? it's sooooooo good

Posted by Petey Menz | May 11, 2009 3:02 PM

I heard the hipster grifter gave tba hotdogs so they must be good.. plus I hear anco has a remix of theirs due out in a few years so I'm confident that they're the next best band. fingers crossed they get signed to paw trax if anything...
