"Bees are Flowers" are really These Are Powers tonight at Cake Shop.

"Bassist Sasha Frere-Jones and drummer Clem Waldmann began playing together in 1990. Wilbo Wright joined in 1993 and Ui began recording. Ui's songs draw on rock, funk, dub and electronic music. The band's early releases incorporated instruments less common to pop - banjos, tubas and kettle drums - but the band soon stopped using any instrument that couldn't fit into a cab. In addition to one of the earliest known single-artist remix albums ("Unlike," 1995), the band has released four studio albums, including "Answers" and the nineties classic, "Lifelike." Ui has collaborated with Stereolab, Techno Animal, Microstoria and Luke Vibert. In early 2010, Dan Friel began playing electronics and baritone guitar with the band." Yes, The New Yorker's Sasha Frere-Jones is playing a show at the Bell House tonight. Parts & Labor member Dan Friel is both in the band and opening with one of his solo sets. It's Ui's first official show in 10 years, and a warm up for the slot they landed on the lineup of the Primavera Festival at the end of this month in Barcelona.

The new video for Keepaway's "I Think About You All The Time" is posted below. They play an EP release show tonight with DOM, The Tony Castles and Rewards at Mercury Lounge.

DOM also play the BV Northside show at MHOW this summer.

PiL's recent DC show is streaming on NPR. John Lydon is on East Village Radio at 10am. Pil play Terminal 5 tonight, and then the smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday.

DJ Roc Raida's birthday is being celebrated at Brooklyn Bowl tonight.

What else?

Keepaway - "I Think About You All The Time"

PIL SUCKS NOW

Posted by Absolute Poser | May 18, 2010 5:38 AM

Any opening band for PIL?

Terminal 5 is a no no! Never see a show at Terminal 5, especially if the bands as old as Lydon.

Hey Sasha, your band sucks almost as much as your music criticism. When will the New Yorker fire you?

When has the Local H show been moved to in light of the late STP show?

Posted by Funderburgh | May 18, 2010 10:16 AM

sasha is a "well connected" richbro. rushmore was based on him. unfortunately, he's here to stay/misrepresent shit (via the new yooooorkehr)
at his worst when insisting on the talent of r&b belters (still paying for his infamous racial fail)

>>When has the Local H show been moved to in light of the late STP show?

Local H's drummer posted on their board that the doors would be at 7 and the show would be over at 9:30.

Just read "Evolution of a Cro-magnon." It was great and amazingly written. Looking forward to "Meat is for Pussies."

@ 1218 - thanks...not sure how they plan on doing "doors @ 945" for STP then (which is what it says on the tickets)

@ 1220 - PJ will go on 845/850 - in your seat by 830 to be safe.

Posted by Funderburgh | May 18, 2010 1:45 PM

anybody know what time PIL is going on?

@Funderburgh

Yeah, the LiveNation/Gramercy site has times listed as 7:15 for Local H and 10:15 for STP. I imagine the STP show -- which will be mostly will call tix - will be not have an especially prompt start. Also, Scott Weiland, um.

Posted by J | May 18, 2010 2:59 PM

"Neil Young and Bert Jansch in Albany!"

He doesn't have a show scheduled for Thurs night - would be awesome if he made a cameo at the PJ show @MSG that night.
