Band of Horses @ SXSW (more by Bryan Bruchman)
Band of Horses

Band of Horses play this Sunday at Williamsburg Waterfront with Grizzly Bear and Karen Elson. That's sold out. On Saturday, Band of Horses are playing as part of Broken Social Scene's Toronto Island concert along with Pavement, Beach House, Timber Timbre and others. That show is now part of NXNE, and they'll be letting in 250 badgeholders from the fest. Tickets are still on sale.

And Friday (6/18), Band of Horses will be playing a free AOL-sponsored show at an as-of-now-secret location in Manhattan at 6:30pm (which means Band of Horses are playing NYC, then Toronto, then NYC again this weekend). The Manhattan location is expected to be revealed Thursday at noon. We'll of course post it as soon as it is. The band so far tweeted a map of midtown (which has Radio City in the center of it) so the show might be somewhere in that area or not (presumably not South Street Seaport). The tweeted pic is below.

The free show is following in the pattern of what AOL did at SXSW for their secret/surprise parking garage show with Broken Bells and a different band each day that March week.

Broken Social Scene's concert-scored film This Movie Is Broken, directed by Bruce McDonald and soundtracked with footage from BSS's Toronto Island show in 2009, is screening on Thursday (6/17) at 92YTribeca (it's a fictional story, part of which takes place at the show, with music and clips from the gig throughout). That screening is sold out, but "a limited number of tickets for sold out events may be available one hour before curtain." Broken Social Scene play NYC's Rumsey Playfield in September.

The trailer for that film, the above-mentioned BoH pic and some videos below...

Could be the Radio City marquee, like they used to do for the MTV awards.

After watching those fucking Drake videos, I don't think I want to bother with any more free shows this summer. Or ever, really. I'll gladly pay monies from now on to thin out all the asshole high school punks.

The earlier tease on their Twitter account (the map of midtown) mentioned it being Friday at rush hour.

So a free concert at Grand Central during rush hour?! Who are the geniuses that planned this thing?! The same stupid assholes who put together the awesome Drake/Hanson show?!

PASS!!!! (And I really like Band of Horses.)

I think this is a winning move for Brooks and Dunn. You go, boys!
