WAVVES @ Market Hotel in September (more by Leia Jospe)
WAVVES

WAVVES' last trip to NYC included a show at Santos and Market Hotel and a scuffle with a member of Black Lips.

On Tuesday, February 16th, WAVVES (Nathan and drummer Zach Hill) (UPDATE: We are told that Zach no longer plays in WAVVES) will return for a free show at Brooklyn Bowl (which is where one of three NYC Black Lips shows is happening in late March).

The previous (pre-Zach) drummer of WAVVES, Ryan Ulsh, has a hand in running Norfolk, VA's SHDWPLAY Records Showcase. The label brings its bands The Super Vacations (a garage rock outfit featuring Ryan), Sore Eros, PC Worship and Florida to Glasslands on Friday January 29th for a show presented by Other Music (who is giving away tix and vinyl, details below). The Super Vacations, PC Worship and Teeth Mountain play Market Hotel the next night. And the SHDWPLAY showcase is in Philly the next.

If you were at SXSW last year, WAVVES (and an anti-WAVVES shirt) were everywhere. They'll be at the Austin fest again this year too. A video of Nathan at SXSW 2009, "covering" "Barbie Girl" and more are below...

His recorded stuff is okay enough but live it's a fucking joke, the most uninteresting thing I've ever seen in my life.

It's the first show where he's playing with Jay Reatard's band.

"Only 12 comments. Definitely over."

Word. If hipsters don't even care enough about you to make snarky comments in Brooklyvegan, your 15 minutes are definitely up.
