Grass Widow

As I just mentioned, the November 7th Frankie Rose and The Outs show at the Woodser will be with San Francisco's Grass Widow who will be in town for a week's worth of shows. Frankie was in a band with most of them, called Shitstorm, who basically became Grass Widow after Frankie moved to NYC.

Grass Widow have put out two records this year -- an LP on Make a Mess records which came out over the summer, and a new EP on Captured Tracks. They're both worth picking up, especially for fans of Brilliant Colors, Vivian Girls (with whom they'll play at Market Hotel on Nov. 6) and Liechtenstein. There's also a free afternoon show at Brooklyn Museum on Nov. 7 with Crystal Stilts and The Beets.

The November 7th date coincides with the museum's Who Shot Rock: Photographers of Rock and Roll exhibition which opens at the end of October.

All upcoming Grass Widow and Crystal Stilts dates, and a video, below...

No way dude..Katy is the cutest girl in Brooklyn!

Cutest girl in brooklyn ? you either have obscenely low standards or in the last few hours brooklyn has suddenly become the convening point for a diaspora of linda hunt and lili taylor clones.

what's not to like?..she's got great hair, a cool sense of style, pretty smile, a decent body and seems like a nice enough gal. I'm not a big fan of the ink but overall I haven't seen anything better in these parts to make me think otherwise.

what a bunch of bumbaclarts talking about who the "cutiest" is! You're acting like 11 year old N*Sync fans.

A) Grass Widow are probably the best thing i've heard all year
B) Maybe they are just better then Vivian Girls
C) If you didn't care about any of that why post about it!
D) Malta rules.

Grass Widow is the most exciting band I've heard in a long time. Whether or not they're hotties is completely irrelevant to the music (isn't this a music blog?).

I'm not sure from this post though, is the Woodser show on the 5th or 7th? The article contradicts the list of shows below it.

this is probably one of the more disgusting things I've ever read in my life.

nothing disgusting about frank talk re: what men or women find attractive in each other. If you haven't figured that out then your feminism is pretty outdated, as well as just wrong.
