Fake Male Voice @ Glasslands in February (more by Jacob Blickenstaff)
Fake Male Voice

Thanks to everyone who came out to our day party at Pianos yesterday. There were almost too many highlights to count. We've got four more parties still to come, three of which are today/tonight. Lots of great options all around today (10/23). I'm trying to highlight some of the ones you may not know about.

DAYTIME:

BrooklynVegan has another free day party today, this one on the harder-edged tip with Los Angeles' Nebula, Brooklyn's Naam, BV day party veterans Crystal Antlers, Goes Cube (read our interview with the band) and Austin's awesome Ume at Fontana's (105 Eldridge, NY, NY) today from 1 - 7. First band on at 2. Set times and flyer below. Free Miller beer and Vitamin water.

Over at Crash Mansion, there's a cool mid-day party (4 - 7) put on by the folks at Beyond Race with the lovely and mellow Helado Negro, Kiss Kiss, L.A. power poppers Army Navy and London's awesome Pete & the Pirates. who played a great set at the Bell House on Wednesday Night. Don't forget, Pete & the Pirates also play the Brooklyn Vegan Bowery Presents day party Saturday (10/24) at Pianos.

There's a lot going on in Brooklyn today too. The new Kemado Studios called The Co-Op (87 Guernsey St, Brooklyn) (which I hear is a pretty cool space) has Harlem, Viva L'American Death Ray Music, and Smith Westerns.

The Village Voice is putting on a day party at Knitting Factory with Javelin, Portland's Shaky Hands, Headlights and Orba Squara.

And then at Bruar Falls there's a kind of potentially amazing line-up, including Fake Male Voice (Tunde of TV on the Radio), mi-gu (Yuko of Cornelius and Plastic Ono Band) with Sean Lennon and Yuko Honda, as well as Ladybug Transistor, James Husband (Jamie of Of Montreal) and Hard Nips. This one is not free, $8 admission. Starts at noon.

Bill used to be a legitimate source of information about bands, now he's just pimping for any band who is playing any BV showcase.

hmmmm... well, bill writes for Brooklyn Vegan.
Brooklyn Vegan prints about bands enjoyed by the site and editor + Brooklyn Vegan chooses bands to play BV showcases because they are favorites of the site.... = Bill likes bands at BV showcases and will continue to write about them.

.... loser

Dude, don't diss on Bill. The dude isn't cutting & pasting press releases, he's an amazing guy who actually goes out and sees music as opposed to sitting home and writing about it.

Seriously you are confused.

"Bill used to be a legitimate source of information about bands, now he's just pimping for any band who is playing any BV showcase."

Also, you are further confused because he is actually just also pimping four other parties happening at the same exact time as ours!

I will stop now.

Bill's great. See him out at shows all the time, and he champions a ton of great bands (Comet Gain comes to mind) that most blogs/publications largely ignore.
