Silversun Pickups @ Sasquatch Fest (more by Chris Graham)
Silversun Pickups

Silversun Pickups will be in NYC for a set at All Points West on Sunday, August 2nd. It's their first NYC-area show in a while, and their only NYC-area, public show in support of their new album, Swoon, which came out in April on Dangerbird Records. I say it's their only "public" show because they're also playing a private show two days earlier, July 31st at 4:30pm. Presented by iheartradio, the free gig will take place at the new PC Richard & Son Theater (32 Sixth Ave) (capacity of about 200 people). Tickets are required, and we have ten pairs of them to giveaway. Details below.

The video for "Panic Switch," off the new record, with clips from the band's recent MTV Unplugged performance, all tour dates, and details on the ticket giveaway, below...

Did anyone hear that oddball interview done by D'arcy of the Smashing Pumpkins? Very odd - she is unfortunately a fan of this band...

Unnecessary.

"she is unfortunately a fan of this band."

Why unfortunately? They are great.

the worst elements of 90s alt rock are still better than the best elements of 00s indie rock.

They sound like the Pumpkins if Corgan didn't lose his mind after Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. And that's a good thing.

Suzie Cocktail was fourth place in the nob competition.

Roadies report the singer farts when he sings, creating an unbearable stench for anyone within the general vicinity of the stage. Kinda cool.

Their last show at Webster Hall was great. Played pretty much all of Carnavas and Pikul. Looking forward to seeing them Sunday...

I won a free pair! Whoo!!

this band is absolutely terrible. if you've ever listened to music before, you'll notice that they sound like a mishmash of every shitty grunge band that rightfully faded from the spotlight back in 1996.
and they are terrible live. the keyboard player isnt plugged into anything

Great band, this will be fun

I attended the private gig yesterday and it was fantastic. The PC Richard theater is a cool space, nice lighting, great sound, very intimate. They played for only about 40 mins, probably about 6 or 7 songs, but they sounded phenomenal and it was FREE!
