Back from ATP, The Feelies play two sets at Southpaw. An unofficial video for "Loveless Love" below.

Dirty Three played Ocean Songs in full at ATP on Friday. Tonight they perform at Bowery Ballroom with Pillars and Tongues (and hopefully Nick Cave). Their video for the song "Great Waves" (featuring Chan Marshall) is below.

Moving Sounds Festival continues with music from TimeTable Percussion and others at (Le) Poisson Rouge.

Naked Raygun, Paint It Black and Shot Baker play Maxwell's.

The Howl Festival presents a reading with Richard Hell at New Museum.

On the occasion of the release of newly elaborated editions of his 1973 novelina, The Voidoid (now with drawings by Kier Cooke Sandvik), published in June, and his 1983 Voidoids album (with new guitar parts added by Marc Ribot, Bill Frisell, and Ivan Julian), which is re-released September 1 as Destiny Street Repaired, Richard Hell will make a rare [?] public appearance reading from his self-bio in progress, among other works, and will sing at least one song with guitar accompaniment. Possibly other media will get play, too.
Jedi Mind Tricks play Highline Ballroom with R.A. the Rugged Man and Reef the Lost Cauzer.

Desolation Wilderness and The Intelligence gig with City Center (on tour) and German Measles at Cake Shop.

Wayne Coyne gives a rundown of bands playing ATP NY, below...

No Kings of Leon or Glasvegas coverage from last night? Man, what does it take around these parts to get some recognition. Both bands were great at Izod Center!

You can't deny it: Lady Gaga put on one fucking show tonight. I'd bang her out even if she did have guy parts between her legs.

Wait are you talking about Jim Carroll of the Hydrahead metal band, Clouds? I used to always chill with that dude at bars in Allston and we had a few good shows with his band at the Boston clubs. What happened? He was probably only 28 or something. A lot of my friends are good friends with him and his bandmates so this is going to be a total wreck of a week. What an awful start.

Re: MUSE

I'm guessing that 75% of the people who showed up with the "free tickets" to this show actually got in. There were literally hundreds of people who got shut out from it, total nightmare. MTV proves once again to be a bunch of assholes as this was seemingly done on purpose to keep a crowd outside the venue for that 3 seconds of time where Matt (singer) ran outside during the performance.

where were all you bitches on sat night when HUGH CORNWELL (from the Stranglers) played the Highline Ballroom?

at best there were 100 or so people in attendance (100 punks!?).

great show, HC is an amazing songwriter and brilliant guitar player.

Posted by oldpunk | September 14, 2009 9:51 AM

Hugh Cornhole? Never heard of 'im, sorry.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2009 9:56 AM

Hugh Cornwell is a silly old man who used to think he was a heroin-addicted tough guy in The Stranglers. Now he is bald and old and broke and decrepit and even too stupid and contrary in the face of all the evidence (like totally *empty* concert halls) to kiss Stranglers' bassist JJ Burnel's bum and get back in the only band he was ever any good in. He even tries to give his solo albums away online in shitty sounding mp3s but they are so very, very, VERY bad that no one wants them. Even his old band has managed *one* very good album without him -- Norfolk Coast -- far better than anything Old Uncle Hughie has managed on his own. Hughie must have soiled his Depends when he heard that album. I heard there was almost NO ONE at his Highline Ballroom show on Saturday except the staff, who were pissed because they had to stand around and listen to his garbage band and not make anything in tips, and a couple of greying old punks with huge beer guts, guys who haven't seen their dicks in aout 20 years, singing "Bring On The Nubiles," black irony that is almost gut-wrenchingly funny. Hugh Cornwell is a very, very creepy man and is really up for the title of "SADDEST MAN IN ROCK AND ROLL." Sure Grandpa, bring on the nubiles! A nubile for Hugh and his two or three 300 pound fans must be what, about 65 years old? Meanwhile, Hugh says, "Anyone want a free MP3? No, really, it's free!" If there is a sadder, lamer, more ridiculous old fart than Hugh Cornwell in all of rock and roll, I don't know who he is.

Hugh Cornwell's downloadable online albums: they're FREE and they're worth every penny.

Posted by Bring On The GILFS! | September 14, 2009 10:37 AM

Cornhole is a really fun game, for the entire family, even. Also free!

It's blackly hiliarious that, ahem, "punks" like The Stranglers were never going to be like hippie bands, reveling in nostalgia and carrying on long after there was any point to the music. And yet in Hugh Cornwell's case (and he's far from alone), at least, that's EXACTLY what he's doing. Out there singing "Bring On the Nubiles" for a "crowd" (if you consider about 25 people a "crowd") of beer-gutted, drunken, 50-ish, balding fat guys sporting huge beer guts and trying to remember the last time they got laid by anything other than their right hand, and Dirty Uncle Hughie wants to be taken *seriously?* He's a bigger joke artistically than Gentle Giant, Horslips or Rick Wakeman at this point in time, and a bigger fool than Gene Simmons or Bono, who both suck, but who both can still make wads of money suckering the idiot public. Look, Hughie, it's time for a dose of reality: either kiss and make up with the Stranglers and do a reunion tour that might draw more than a flies on shit and make you some retirement cash, or just get the hell out of the business and live frugally on your old age pension and quit embarrassing yourself with unattended "tours" and "free" crappy sounding mp3s of crappy songs that no one wants anyway.

I've had just about enough of your Gentle Giant-bashing, young lady!

Horslips, now there was true genius.

@JJB10:30/Gentle Giant11:27 - Uhm...we get it...you don't like Hugh Cornwell. Were you the same fanatic trashing Trent Reznor in all the previous NIN show posts? Seriously...lighten up.

Posted by blackhat | September 14, 2009 12:08 PM

contrary to the above comments (they weren't there, ironic isn't it) it was a brilliant set. HC is a fantastic songwriter and guitar player.

btw i may 50ish (ha), but def not fat, nor do i have a beer belly!

true, it was a very sparsely attended show. you missed a good one.

i'm heading off to the gym right now ! (lol)

Posted by oldpunk | September 14, 2009 12:13 PM

"Uhm...we get it...you don't like Hugh Cornwell"

I like Hugh -- I just hate to see him making a fool out of himself because he's too egotistical to do the right thing, for himself and his fans.

Posted by JJB | September 14, 2009 12:54 PM

"Oldpunk said: "True, it was a very sparsely attended show."

Then my remarks are obviously right on target.

Why is a man of Hugh's age and stature making a fool out of himself when he could be pleasing his fans (who would turn out for The Stranglers -- original version) instead of playing ghost tours in the USA promoting "free" albums that no one cares about. I highly doubt you went to see Hugh play stuff from his latest "free" album. If he's going to play "Bring On The Nubiles," he might as well play it to hundreds or thousands of fans instead of dozens. It could all be fixed with some common sense from both sides.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2009 1:01 PM

Important announcement: Hugh Cornwell has changed the name of his original composition previously mentioned to

"BRING ON THE NUBILE (PLEASE!)"

Posted by GILF Squad | September 14, 2009 1:11 PM

Just for giving us "Golden Brown" and "Always The Sun", Cornwall's legacy is established.

Posted by drewo | September 14, 2009 1:29 PM

The "legacy" of which you speak is The Stranglers' legacy, not Hugh's alone. Which is why he is playing to empty clubs when he could be playing to packed houses, if things were put back together and promoted properly.

Posted by JJB | September 14, 2009 1:33 PM

I wouldn't give you a nickel for Wayne Coyne.

This clown needs a new act.

listen i don't why more people didn't turn out-proves nothing about the quality of the show. the man has dynamite songbook and can sing and play guitar w the best of them. it was an EXCELLENT SET: as good the show(s) that Art Brut did recently,
a bit better than Ian Hunter last gig here, almost as good as Animal Collective.

the new album "hoover dam" isn't groundbreaking but
does have a couple of good songs and one great one; "with or without you'. 'nice & sleazy', 'duchess" , 'walk on by' , 'peaches' and 'no more heroes" sounded fantastic! it was worth the price of admission to hear "hanging around" and 'down in the sewer'.
get a grip. this guy fuckin' Rocked It.
