The Raveonettes

"Wormed all the way up to the front, hoping to hear some of the new songs the Raves have been working on for their new album, which didn't happen... a few songs in Sune mentioned that since the new album was just recently completed they didn't have enough time to practice the new ones. Minor bummer, but whatevs, live Raves is always rad, no? This was to be the 10th time I've seen 'em, for fuck's sake! Well, not exactly. This turned out to be the worst set I've ever seen by them, hindered by Sune's guitar being practically inaudible as well as some real jackass hecklers behind me. Or maybe the Raves are just vampires and they wilt in the light (first time I've ever seen 'em outdoors). Never mind. Decent, but not up to their usual awesomeness." [Tuddd's Muddd]
The Raveonettes' next Brooklyn show will be indoors, and it will take place at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 18th, AND Austin's The Black Angels will open which is very good news (maybe the two bands will be touring here from Austin City Limits where the Raves are playing on October 3rd). Tickets for the Music Hall show go on sale Friday at noon.

you know, as much as this band defines the "hipster" image (same as the kills), they have some great tunes. particularly "dead sound".

how did this shitty set get its own section and there still hasnt been mention of monotonix or japandroids

@ 2:29
Dead Sound is particularly unoriginal as it borrows from Suicide's "Cheree". They should cut Suicide a check.

@ 5:40 perhaps no one cares

It's a common chord progression, but Correctumundo. It's the little casio sounds that make it so similar.

wtf are you guys so fucking obsessed with monotonix?
the band's been touring nyc nonstop for the past two years and they stop going to nyc for four months and guys are going, "AHHHHHHHHH MONOTONIX IS SOOOOOOO AWESOME." get over yourselves. if you were big fucking fans of them you should have supported them when they played a near-empty bowery show last year

They're also, you know, not very good. They're one of those bands with a totally fun live show (like Peelander Z or Matt&Kim) with music that you would probably never actually listen any other time.

^Bullshit! The only records I own or listen to are Monotonix!
