Video of the show below..

Menage A Twang is the "Don't Date a Hipster" Band. They play Union Hall tonight.

"The performance space at The Bell House [tonight] will be transformed with an installation of floating walls suspended from the existing exposed 20-foot beams. The 8'x4' walls will feature works by local artists, with alternating performances highlighted on stage and in the crowd by local musicians, djs, performance artists, and clothing designers."

Best Fwends didn't have the Bell House art show on their schedule the other day, but now they do.

Nine Inch Nails' 10-date tour continues at Webster Hall with The Horrors. See what happened last night at Bowery Ballroom.

Girl Talk, elecro-popper Max Tundra and Wiz Khalifa play the Williamsburg Waterfront. NOTE: Max Tundra is on first (not Wiz as some listings read). Afterparty at Brooklyn Bowl (and Public Assembly).

There's one more Pool Party to go after Girl Talk, and that's Grizzly Bear and Beach House next week. Dan Deacon's "Pool" Party was a few weeks back - check out his new video for "Paddling Ghost," with a clip of him from the NJ pool party show, below.

Wizardry, whose new video was posted here on Friday, play tonight at Union Pool with Marching Teeth and Skeleton Breath.

Buzzer and Impediments, both of whom mine "mid-70s glam-punk," continue their NYC run with a show at DBA with The Dashing Suns.

does anyone know if you can bring a camera or if the rain will shut the show down?

anybody know how early to get to the pool party to get a decent spot for the headliner?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 10:22 AM

Rain WILL NOT shut the show down, but LIGHTENING will.

hipsters have now invaded children's shows...they are officially an epidemic. must be stopped.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 10:52 AM

Approx. what time do you think Max Tundra will be on?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 11:10 AM

And when does the entire show end?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 11:13 AM

Rain won't make them cancel the show, but "LIGHTNING" will.

"LIGHTENING" means "to make less heavy."

Posted by Freepster | August 23, 2009 11:17 AM

Rain will hopefully end the show. A badly grounded wire on stage will electrocute girl talk and we will be spared from ever having to hear about this talentless hack ever again! Man oh man way to stretch your 15 min way over your sell by date!

go feed the ani-meh-ls someplace else, gregg meh-chael gillis.

amazing how many turds are willing to follow dumbshit herd trends. girl talk is a crappy, uninventive, unremarkable dj. yet i hear he makes between 25 and 50K per EACH show. WTF?!?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:07 PM

"yet i hear he makes between 25 and 50K per EACH show. WTF?!?"

yep, something in that range. my friend tried to book him at his school and he was asking for a ridiculous amount of money. guy's ego must be huge, i don't see why anyone would spend that much for a glorified dj.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:29 PM

you guys who are complaining are spoiled and don't even realize how lucky you are to be living in this time. this is history in the making

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:54 PM

If Girl Talk is history in the making, I'm not sure I want to see what the future will hold.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 1:59 PM

You want mash-ups? Listen to the "As Heard on Radio Soulwax" series by 2 Many DJs, not Girl Talk. That 25 to 50K could have been better spent elsewhere.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 2:22 PM

Of all the button pushers in the world, he is definitely one of the best. Hey, look at me press this button, now this one! Hey everyone, come onstage and dance! This guy is a talentless tool elevated by folks who don't know any better.

"you guys who are complaining are spoiled and don't even realize how lucky you are to be living in this time. this is history in the making"

LMAO u r probably the one who is spoiled. u just don't have taste GT sux

Why would his ego be huge? You guys are just bitter failures. Go outside, it's Sunday.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 4:31 PM

"go outside" is an irrelevant thing to say now that everyone has internet on their phone. im outside right now, insulting you.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 5:00 PM

What's more surprising, the fact that he is still popular, or the fact that every time he comes up here you guys start crying about it?

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2009 5:02 PM

my problem with girl talk is he's like 8th wave white boy mashup big beat. this was cool in 96-97 with skint records and freskanova...i did that back then...and then i was over it.

hearing pop music cut up is just an excuse for lame kids to think they are doing something different.

no fucking taste.

Four-piece bands--guitars, bass, and drums--are so over. Buddy Holly did it in the fifties. It's so over now.

Smile!

difference being, oh so snarky 'regular reader', playing an instrument requires skill.

FUCK apparently the setlist at NIN Webster is the entire Downward Spiral. Not retroactively helping my Bowery experience.

You hipsters should spend all Sunday night feeling bad that you missed one of the best shows of the year last night at Mercury Lounge: The Upper Crust makes NIN look like the fat, balding, souless plebian twats that they are.

"You hipsters should spend all Sunday night feeling bad that you missed one of the best shows of the year last night at Mercury Lounge."

I hate that people on this board make it sound like attending concerts in this city is one big contest to see who has bragging rights for having attended the best or most exclusive show. You should just go to the shows you feel like going to & not worry about what other people will think, or what other people should be doing, etc.

Fucking conceited jerk-off.

what!? it is a contest, and you probably lost!

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2009 1:38 AM

1:38 and you won the contest for being a douche-bag with no friends

So how was Girl Talk? was it as crowded as expected or what? I know I skipped it...

Heidi Montag performed a song during the Miss Universe 2009 pageant:

yes, girl talk was really crowded. most people i've seen at the pool. btw, anyone go to lightning bolt??

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2009 12:00 PM

Fuck, I missed Girl Talk because the "Bozo with a Laptop" show ran a little long. I guess they're kinda similar, but I think Bozo is less derivative
I interviewed Greg Gillis' laptop for my blog, and he told me he was working on a solo record. Can't wait.

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2009 12:01 PM

Oh, 12:01. I see what you did there.

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2009 12:05 PM

"Fucking conceited jerk-off." You expected anything else from a fan of a band named The Upper Crust? The joke's on you.

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2009 12:54 PM

I heard Heidi Montag's performance had more passion than Nine Inch Nails Bowery show. She performed her whole new single in it's entierty at the Miss Universe Pagent! Take that Downward Spiral! :)
