Future Islands @ the 1896 in January (more by Lori Baily)
Future Islands

This Saturday (August 29th) Impose Magazine is hosting "Party with Tables," a day-show benefit for 826NYC at the Brooklyn Yard. The diverse lineup includes Screaming Females, Zs, Sharon Van Etten, Future Islands and Psychic Ills. There's also going to be an evening program by Cinema 16 afterward (that's the film series that pairs silent movies with new live scores from contemporary musicians). On top of those, there'll be a record and craft fair running all day. Tickets are on sale.

The gig is actually a pretty good window into the coming weeks, as most of the bands on the bill have their own gigs on the horizon. Zs are actually playing tonight (8/28) at the Cake Shop. They'll be at Glasslands on September 3rd and Death By Audio's MAZE in October (not surprising as Zs member Sam Hilmer is one of its organizers).

Screaming Females have a September 1st show at the Mercury Lounge (tix) with other shows planned too.

Sharon Van Etten has a show at Joe's Pub on September 4th with Meg Baird (tix are on sale). She's also opening tour dates for Great Lakes Swimmers, which also has NYC stops.

Future Islands play later the same night (as the Yard show) at Market Hotel with Celebration and Sam Mickens' Ecstatic Showband & Revue.

And Psychic Ills are going on tour with the Butthole Surfers this fall. All tour dates for the mentioned bands, with the show's full lineup and a flyer, are below...

There's definitely nowhere for the Butthole Surfers to play that's in between Philly and Boston. Good reason to drive straight through.

It's supposed to be pretty crappy out tomorrow. Is this BKLYN Yard show actually going to happen?

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 10:52 AM

10:52 I was wondering about that too. Definitely not a 'rain or shine' location.

Posted by un:ART:ig | August 28, 2009 11:15 AM

Sharon's awesome!!!

I want to see future islands. Have not seen them since the deacon round robin at LPR.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 11:57 AM

there's a general message on the website about the Bell House being their rain location. Didn't say anything about this show specifically. Looks like the Bell House is having a soul record fair from 11-5 tomorrow.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 11:58 AM

The Bell House is only officially the rain location for the Sunday Best parties. Someone just told me the Impose show rain location might be Southpaw. Trying to confirm.

thanks for looking out, BV!

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 12:56 PM

Yeah BV, I don't know if people thank you that often. Seems like people are mostly content to shit on your name/hard work. But tons of folks appreciate what you do, me included.

Psychic Ills' "Mirror Eye" is the worst record I have ever heard, ever. And I fucking hate a shitload of records. I have heard that their other one doesn't suck as badly, but Jesus H. Fucking Christ, they get to tour with the Butthole Surfers?!? What the shit is going on here?!?

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 1:04 PM

I am in agreement with both 1:00 and 1:04. Brooklyn Vegan is awesome, and Psychic Ills is one of the worst piece of shit opening bands I've ever heard. And that's really saying something.

Any idea what time Screaming Females might play? I don't have 9 spare hours on my Saturday waiting.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 1:26 PM

Thanks! :)

And, here's the official word:
"southpaw is the severe rain site. We also have tents for the Yard if the weather ends up being passable. It's happening either way, and we will make the announcement tomorrow at 10am."

Stay tuned.

News flash dumb ass, bands like Butthole Surfers pick their support. Thats how Psychic Ills "get to".

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2009 11:56 AM

I am a big fan of the Psychic Ills-- I don't personally know any of the band members. I really enjoy them live and the record is a little more straightforward than their live show but it is pretty good. Not sure what the negative comments are about.

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2009 3:53 PM

I'm sure a lot of their fans will participate in those concert dates mentioned above. Indeed, they have really amazing talents and perform very well.
