The Drums - new band picture
The Drums

The Drums went from playing a lot of shows a few month ago, to disappearing for a while. That hiatus ends next year when they return to headline Bowery Ballroom on January 13th. Tickets go on sale Saturday at noon. Maybe the band is currently on vacation in their previous home state of Florida because they're also scheduled to play a show tonight (12/4) at the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami. Their only other show between now and NYC is on New Years Eve in Chicago (the city with all the best New Years Eve shows this year).

Opening the Bowery show will be Surfer Blood who were most recently in town to open for Art Brut at Brooklyn Bowl. Surfer Blood also have a New Years Eve show scheduled, but theirs is in NYC at Cameo Gallery with Frankie (Rose) and The Outs, Beach Fossils, and We Are Country Mice. It only costs $10 which is a bargain for that night, though the venue is kind of small. Set times and other details about that show below.

anyone know if there is/will be a place to get surfer blood NYE tickets online?

Posted by brian | December 4, 2009 6:42 PM

for the price, and compared to the other shitty NYE happenings out there, this looks like one of the better shows that night.

@ 6:57

Four lads auditioning for the lead in Jason Reitman's upcoming adaptation of Catcher In The Rye

Surfer Blood is actually a pretty good band, nice melodies and some good guitar-based power pop.

Drums on the other hand are complete and utter horseshit. The singer is some failed boy-band retread. Despite their faux "indie" pose, they are signed with some major LA pr firm that represents all vacuous crap music.

"they are signed with some major LA pr firm that represents all vacuous crap music."

yeah, unlike all the other brooklyn/pitchfork bands you like, which get famous solely on the basis of their musical talent and devoted local followings. give me a fucking break.

anon 1:56:
no, their pr firm actually is based out of nyc, and represents "vacuous crap" bands like the walkmen, art brut, antlers, here we go magic, and a ton more. at least have your facts straight if you're going to slam someone so maliciously.

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2009 11:58 AM

maliciously? ha! hell, its probably crueler to lump them in with steaming piles of turd like art brut anyways.

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2009 12:10 PM

The FACTS are that The Drums are represented by 3D out of Santa Monica, California. That firm also represents rubbish like Scissor Sisters, Rilo Kiley and Coldplay. Major label formula crap for the masses. The Drums aren't a real band, they are a corporate "indie" band as fake as the backing tracks used for their live shows.

if the Drums were real...they would play their instruments

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2009 1:21 PM

You people clearly don't remember Elkland. Because if you did, you wouldn't give these major label has-been Drums clowns the time of day.

What do you mean, "you people"?

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2009 2:28 PM

To anon 1:06,
Uh, actually 3D is their management, not their PR. There's a big difference. And 3D's vacuous crap includes Interpol and Santogold. But your point is well taken. Drums use Tell All Your Friends PR. But really, why does any of this matter? Sonic Youth used to be represented by William Morris.

I like their music, but I dislike they all look like Ian Curtis wannabes

Posted by Eduardo | December 5, 2009 9:04 PM

If Ian Curtis was alive to read that last post, he'd hang himself all over again.

Surfer Blood new years eve show costs $15 not $10.

Posted by Anonymous | December 29, 2009 12:17 PM

the price went up

Posted by Anonymous | December 29, 2009 12:23 PM

I would excuse the Drums' cheap posturing and embarrassing resume (youtube: Elkland) if their music wasn't so godawful...kind of sad Frankie is taking the bait.

Posted by Anonymous | December 29, 2009 12:41 PM

Anyone know age restrictions on the Surfer Blood NYE show? 21+? 18+? 16+? All Ages? Us little 17 year olds want something fun to do on NYE, too. Fake IDs are too expensive. Otherwise, I'd love to hit up Passion Pit's DJ set, and Patti Smith @ Bowery.

Oh, well.

Posted by Anonymous | December 31, 2009 2:05 AM

isn't cameo always 21+?

Lavender Essential Oil is derived from the flowers, of the Lavandula angustifolia, from the Lamiaceae family, previously recognized as Lavandula officinalis. It is still recognised as officinalis by some horticulturalists.The Lavender Shrub grows to around one metre. It is an very popular garden shrub grown near entrances and windows for its aroma.
