The Luyas

Hello hello!

Here is the info for our special secret event on Wednesday (21st) night.

Let's all meet at Kings Bar. It's located at 286 Seigel St., Brooklyn, NY 11206 between White and Bogart Sts. (Off the Morgan subway stop.)
We can have a drink there while waiting for everyone to arrive. It's probably a good idea to BYOB for a bit later on if that's your style.

If we are sending this to you, we would really really love to have you there, but if you can't make it, please feel free to come out to our other shows

That was the invite message for Wednesday night's secret Luyas show. Hopefully you didn't have too much trouble figuring out where it was if you wanted to attend. If you weren't there and are wondering what it was like, well the pictures give a pretty good idea. They continue below.

And as their message says, if you missed it, come check out one of their other shows. There was tonight/Thursday at Webster Hall with Owen Pallett, Friday night at Sycamore, and Sunday at Glasslands, and.... (as already posted)... the just added Saturday night with Holiday Shores and The Morning Benders at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The Music Hall show is sold out, so if you have a ticket get there early. Luyas on at 9:00.

You'll recognize The Arcade Fire's Sarah Neufeld in these pictures. She played with them Wednesday night, but unfortunately won't be at any of the other shows this week. The pictures continue below...

It's called Kings County, not Kings Bar.

There was a time when all of those people would have been murdered in that hood at that time of night. I regard that time The Good Old Days

i'm usually always accepting of hipster culture/music and whatnot, but this shit looks ridiculous. blindfolds?

Wacky kids and their twelve string slide guitar hanging out in warehouses.

Looks like some kindergarten shtick from Dan Deacon's repertoire of 'tricks'

Looks like it was beautiful

What kind of instrument (the red one) is that woman playing?

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2010 9:39 AM

She's playing a Yuri Landman Moodswinger. Aaaron Hemphill of Liars is the only other musician who has one. He's also made shit for Jad Fair, Lee Ranaldo, Lou Barlow and others.

Great shot of the two blindfolded people making out. Looks fun and hell, you can't complain about free.

Woah Kid Rock showed up in his Sunday finest? Check out Pic 4 man that Kid Rock is up on his indie bands, he's giving Jay Z a run for the money!

i wonder how many cameras were there and if it ruined the vibe.

Awesome idea, but it would be a lot more interesting if people have actually heard of the band. Who?

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2010 11:40 AM

Well the point is that they are a band that nobody knows about in New York, but have a good musical pedigree (mems formerly of Arcade Fire, Miracle Fortress, Bell Orchestre, etc) and have been liked by many of us who have seen them perform in Montreal and elsewhere. So by providing attention its bv's way of saying "Hey, this band is pretty cool, you should check it out." Its called advocacy. Mkay? Try to enjoy yourself. :)

The Luyas RULE!!!!!!!!!!

Just play a friggin venue and stop trying to be so "clever". It seems a little ridiculous for a band that is virtually unknown to be going through all of this trouble. I mean...it looks like only 20 people actually showed up for this crap.

i think it looks cool you don't have to be super famous to have a secret show and make a fun night out of it. looks special, stop hating just cuz you never know when good things are happening

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
