Rain Machine @ BAM's Howard Gilman Opera House
Rain Machine

post-show: still smitten with kyp. he was great. funny and personable and best alone on stage (esp. with howler monkey backup chick with them? yeesh) AND anti-pop consortium killed it. they were so good. i kind of felt bad for them, though; sitting at shows is weird which is the one reason i'm not more of a fan of seeing concerts like that at bam, and it must be double weird for a bunch of rappers up on stage to be performing in front of an awkwardly seated audience. no matter, though, their energy was great and it made me like the new album even more. [The Vagabond]
The above review is of Rain Machine's Satureday night (January 30th) Sounds Like Brooklyn show at BAM's Howard Gilman Opera House with Anti-Pop Consortium. Les Savy Fav and Vivian Girls kicked off the fest (which has shows through February 6th) at the venue the night before (1/29).

Kyp & Co. recently stopped by Daytrotter to play song's off the Rain Machine debut, which came out on Anti- in September.

Though Kyp and the rest of TV on the Radio are still taking a break, Iran, a group fronted by filmmaker Aaron Aites that sometimes includes Kyp, has an upcoming show. They'll be playing at Knitting Factory on Thursday, March 11th with Arbouretum. Tickets are on sale.

Unfortunately I missed Anti-Pop Consortium, but I enjoyed Rain Machine. Who knew Kip was so charming.

Horrible review .... the "Howling Monkey" backup chick was the one redeeming value of the whole night...

APC completely killed it! And whoever mentioned that backup singer was so right...she was horrible beyond believe. She almost ruined their set for me.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

i was at highline and not williamsburg and the set list posted here seems to fit though I thought they only played 3 songs in the encore (definetely slush and take it in were two of them) though i could be wrong.
