Jeremy Jay
Jeremy Jay

Speaking of Union Hall, the small Park Slope venue doesn't get as much attention since its bigger sister The Bell House opened in the same neighborhood, but there are a bunch of shows coming up there in the next few days that I want to highlight real quick.

LA's Jeremy Jay (K Records) is there tonight (11/5). LA's Black Umbrella is on tour with Jeremy and the pair also play Cake Shop on Friday (11/6). Michael Leviton is also on the Union Hall bill. All dates below.

Friday night (11/6) at Union Hall is a solo show by Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze who plays Maxwell's tonight (11/5).

"Do you really want to hear the answer to the question "What if Glenn Tilbrook started singing like Freddy Mercury?" Do you think that jumping from the awkwardly stomping prog of late Led Zeppelin to ultra-compressed contemporary beats 'n' coos or McCartney-esque cute-pop is inherently interesting? If you answer yes, you might love this record. But if you're left shaking your head like me, it's probably because [Dave] Longstreth's music begs the question. Why did he make Bitte Orca? The only answer proffered is, because he could. " [Dusted]

Dave Longstreth: Who's Glenn Tilbrook?

AV Club: The guy from Squeeze.

Dave Longstreth: From Squeeze? Really? Is this guy British too? Well, whatever. I don't give a fuck.

The Union Hall show is an early show.

The late show at the same venue is your 2nd NYC chance to catch The Hidden Cameras and Gentleman Reg on their current tour. The Canadian artists played Le Poisson Rouge last night while the Yankees were winning the World Series. How was it (the show I mean)?

Glorytellers and Ida play Union Hall on Saturday (11/7). Tickets are still on sale.

Finally, end the weekend laughing. Eugene Mirman and Michael Showalter's comedy show, Tearing the Veil of Maya, is happening at Union Hall on Sunday (11/8).

"That dufus should buy a bigger sweater. It's way too small for him. Idiot."

No shit. Doesn't that guy have any friends? Isn't there anybody around that could tell him: "hey, you look like a moron, get a bigger sweater"? Why didn't the photographer tell him?

Hate this guy. Looks so smug.

guys with girl bodies = not cool. ever.

I saw the picture at the top of the post and thought the same thing as everyone else--there's just something totally wrong with this guy's look.

Posted by Regular reader | November 5, 2009 3:20 PM

Look at the fake bulge in his pants.

Posted by Anonymous | November 5, 2009 3:59 PM

Let's beat him up.

So pretentious.

Sometimes I don't want to see what musicians I'm into look like. It shouldn't matter, but twee sweaters can ruin a good album. That said, I'm looking forward to the show tonight

Posted by Anonymous | November 5, 2009 5:22 PM

not only does his sweater suck, i just went to his myspace and listened to his music - it sounds like the backing music that was playing in Silence of the Lambs when the serial killer skin suit guy is dancing with his junk tucked in between his legs

Posted by anonymous | November 5, 2009 5:30 PM

Just spent 10 minutes staring at his picture. He's ugly. Pass.

Even this guy's friends are ashamed to be seen with him.

Posted by Anonymous | November 5, 2009 6:11 PM

Holy shit, what a bunch of high-school girls. I bet half the bands you love dress just about the same damn way. Posturing, femininity, preening-posing -- it's all been around since day one in rock. It's normal and fine. He looks no better or worse than most of the fey rock-boys photographed here. Would it be better if dude had a big handlebar mustache, greasy long hair, flannel & tats? It's all the same damn shit, same damn cool-kid uniforms, just different versions of it. Perspective kiddies.

10:14 totally fell for it. He probably spent 15 minutes composing that embarrassingly earnest post.

Posted by Anonymous | November 5, 2009 11:09 PM

Look at his sleeves!!! Whataclown!

Posted by Anonymous | November 6, 2009 11:11 AM

10:14 is OTM. He's A.N. A.R.T.I.S.T.. ok?? You're all meanies anyway. BV comMEHnters. JJ FTW!!! Cuck a doodle doo!

I saw him at Union Hall. I was drunk and asked him if he knew of the web site Brooklyn Vegan. He looked at me like I was speaking Chinese.

By the way, the show was boring and forgettable.

Why is Jeremy such a dick??

Posted by Anonymous | November 7, 2009 1:43 PM

Yeah, he's a crotch.

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2009 4:42 PM

he was nice to me
maybe if you're nice and not a douche trying to be cool or funny or disrespectful he and everyone else would be nice to you instead of seeming like a "smug cliche prick" aka just a person ignoring an idiot

Posted by Anonymous | November 8, 2009 8:23 PM

I don't know... I brought him flowers and he immediately fed them to his sweater.

Posted by Anonymous | November 9, 2009 9:00 AM

He has hummus on his upper lip
