WAVVES may or may not make some of the best music of our time.

People might remember him in a few years from now.

Yup. I'm glad I'm alive right now.
It's really something else.
This music.

i dig wavves, but 10:11- that shit made me laugh.

if you're on the fence- its a pretty fun show to go to with a best bud and get ridiculously stoned first. they're just fun, goofy jams.

wavves blows, but go see real estate

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 12:37 AM

that show is worth going to just for woods and real estate... i think wavves is better live than recorded---the recordings have too much of that lofi business going on.

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 12:57 AM

@11:11pm: Marry me?

Wavves is for the 28-45 demographic that love to pretend that they grew up with the punk scene and combine it with the forced love that indie/all music publications make them have for Pet Sounds, even though this trust fund asshole has purposely shifty production and forced "so cal" lyrics and "ooo's" that provide the only point of reference to PS in the first place. This kid sucks, and so do Crystal Stilts with their JAMC mockery that is missing the melodic intelligence, hilarious haircuts, & tasteful black clothing (partially tongue-in-cheek).

At least Passion Pit is doing something original, idiots.

;)
Just kidding, they make me lose hope for our youth, and don't get me started on MGMT.

Okay, my steam has been released. Good night!

Whoopsie Goldberg opened up for TBA's last show in Todd P's bathtub in December. They were only kinda meh.

Are there really enough retards in New York who listen to this garbage to warrant them headlining a gig at the Bowery Ballroom? If so, I'm embarrassed for this city.

12:59 may be verbose, but he's right. maybe you should stop having shitty taste.

@1:03am I wrote that post on the toilet, and I'm not just saying that to sound cool. It was a semi-decent shit btw.

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 1:31 AM

i don't know what's worse: writing a lengthy and laborious post on bv overall or writing a short post in support of a shitty fucking band. i walked out of this show in minneapolis when i was visiting, but i also just wrote more than two lines on this comment. double fail?

P4K LINEUP WEAK THIS YEAR, ESPECIALLY SATURDAY, WAS HOPING FOR A DINOSAUR JR OR SONIC YOUTH TYPE ADDITION, WAY BIGGER BANDS LAST YEAR

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 5:03 AM

WAVVES knows how to write songs that speak to MY generation. If you can't dig him, you're too old and just don't understand anything about music.

WAVVES is the present and future of music. In a few years, people won't care about clowns like Michael Gira anymore, it'll be all WAVVES, all the time!

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 6:33 AM

yeah i guess wavves sucks caues he wears american apparel?
cause no one that reads/comments on this site does?
good point?

i just want to say
why so much hate on ppl if they're trust fund
what does that have to do with their music?
weather trust fund or not you should make points about the music

i think wavves is some good summertime jams
but what would i know i'm not a trust fund kid
:/
kinda wish i was

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 9:38 AM

and if he needs to pay 74 bux to look that fit
then he should continue to do that
cuz he's freakin adorable

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 9:42 AM

because it's funny and easy to hate trustafarians for having more than us?

that was all supposed to be a joke. who knows if he even cares if he is a trustafarian, and who cares if it is american apparel? i just wanted to make a rhyme anyway cuz i'm soooooo bored.

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 9:58 AM

it did rhyme!
didn't even notice and they really are 74
you should be a poet

Wavves is not going to save my generation or anything but its music for good times. Not to be taken so fucking seriously. This will be a good show and i will have a goof time.

Lets judge people's music by their family backgrounds. The majority of indie rock bands are kids from the streets who had to work three jobs and come up from the slums just to get there art out there. So fuck wavves having it so easy...lets be real people the majority of indie bands are formed by college educated middle to upperclass white kids originally from the suburbs...Just like everyone who posts on this board.

Funniest comment ever!

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 12:23 PM

actually, i know a lot of working class kids who like and play indie rock. and they are a lot better than this shithead. maybe you should come down from your luxury condo some time.

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 12:27 PM

for all i know, this guy is an orphan who lives in a van and lives on food stamps. the trust fund thing wasn't supposed to be taken seriously, much like this guy's music. he's not horrible, just overhyped and a tad overrated, like many other bands. what's cool is that i don't think he really gives a shit. what's not cool is that his followers do.

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2009 12:35 PM

"...clowns like Michael Gira"

You did NOT just say that! I'm calling you out, come up to me at the next show and I'll smack you!

Wavves is glorious music. I can only compare it to the likes of immortals like Radiohead, Joy Division and Sir Morrissey.

"Wavves is glorious music. I can only compare it to the likes of immortals like Radiohead, Joy Division and Sir Morrissey"

seriously? what i've heard from Wavves is pretty good but no way are they the same caliber as Morrissey or Joy Division. Radiohead? not older Radiohead but the stuff they are making now yes.

food stamps are the new V necks

yo i swear if you kids start getting food stamps i'm gonna kill you! you prectically have to have a baby to keep it these days...

continue buying your 5 dollar platter from the spanish food restaruant and perhaps saving half for dinner, and figuring that you're really scrumaging it

my favorite band is on food stamps, but they're from portland so it's ok

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2009 9:08 AM

whoa! what a bunch of whiny hipster douche bags. this reminds me of why i stopped reading pitchfork and can't stand most of the people who do. every single one of you can name your favorite cool new "original" band, and hundreds of you are going to shit all over it in the most arrogant way only you whiny-hipster-douche-bags can.

I think that to receive the personal loans from creditors you must have a firm reason. Nevertheless, one time I have received a financial loan, just because I wanted to buy a car.
