Goes Cube outside Fontana's
Goes Cube

Goes Cube has scheduled a headlining show for TONIGHT (10/29) at Southpaw with Rumanian Buck, The Unawares, and Elyas Khan. The show is one of two that the band has scheduled in the next week, the second being with Outbreak, Hour Of The Wolf, Violent Bullshit, & Descender at Cake Shop on 11/3. More dates at the bottom of our pre-CMJ interview with the band.

Goes Cube was one of five bands that played the eclectic lineup at the BrooklynVegan Day Party on 10/23 at Fontana's (part of a full day which continued on at the same venue). From tribal psychedelic punk (Crystal Antlers) to full-on stoner riffery (Nebula, Naam) to post-hardcore thunder (Goes Cube) to the punky and spunky (Ume), the day was chock full of killer performances.

Ume started the day with their poppy and suprisingly heavy take on 90s post-punk that is both powerful and charming. Outside of her devilish coo, Lauren is an enigmatic guitarist; all flailing hair, swinging arms, and wild movements. If this band didn't have such catchy songs, you'd probably be content just watching.

Goes Cube was next on the bill, and as semi-old hands in the NYC scene, it's to be expected that this band delivered a heavy and passionate performance. Kudos to Goes Cube, and make sure and get out to see the local boys soon at one of their many upcoming dates.

Naam followed, balancing stoner riffery, psychedelia, and punishing power- there's a reason why they get attached to so many great bills in our city. Nebula headlined the day, playing their take on cali- psych with a new drummer Adam Kriney (La Otracina) in tow following the recent departure of Rob Oswald back to Karma To Burn. If you dig bluesy psychedelia delivered with power, Naam and Nebula are both for you.

Crystal Antlers are veterans of our Day Show, so we knew that catchy songs and punk bombast would be as great as ever. The show of one of THREE that day for Crystal Antlers, so our heartfelt thanks goes out to this hardworking band.

As if there aren't enough pictures already, are the pictures of random people on the street really necessary?

@12:36 those aren't just random people. they are the neighborhood that the venue is in. almost everyone who came to the show went outside between bands, or at least at some point. this is what they saw. it was a part of the experience..

OMG! Real ethnic people! We don't have those back home in the midwest. I am a real photographer because I take pictures of ethnic people. Just like National Geographic.

Paul Birman is the fucking man when it comes to taking photos. If he wants to include what was going on in the hood that day than let him.

"Paul Birman is the fucking man when it comes to taking photos. "

The pictures have that "just some dude with an SLR" look. Nothing special. Anyone could have taken those pictures.

The show however was great. The crowd was good to (at points). The bartenders were great. We tipped them nicely and they hooked us up. Missed Naam though. How were they?

^^Hooked you up with what?

Been waiting for this post, didn't realize it was posted yesterday! Damn good gig, saw Goes Cube also at Southpaw and they rocked there too. Sorry, but I got to agree with everyone else that the pictures are nothing special. Love the "National Geographic" comment.

Sadly though I wasn't able to attend the said event. Darn, I love Cube and many bands here. Such a very successful event and lots of party people in it. I envy this. I do want to join in if there are like this event in the near future. :c

Nice photos. The blonde reminds me of Stevie Nicks.

Ehh, I wish I could take part in this party however it is impossible:(

Posted by game copy wizard | March 4, 2011 8:31 AM

They might be a very popular band but I guess no band can compete with Metallica when it comes to rock. They've been already popular for decades and I believe until now they are still.

Posted by wart removal | March 6, 2011 8:04 AM

Not bad, didn't make the show and have never even heard of them until now. Always on the look out for new bands to listen too.

Posted by Wart Removal | March 28, 2011 10:15 AM

How many albums have they released?
