Diamond Rings sporting peacock feathers @ Wrongbar in Toronto
NXNE

At Wrongbar in Toronto on Friday, 6/18 (before Mudhoney played at Horseshoe Tavern), One Big Silence, the new label from Fucked Up's Mike Haliechuk, hosted an NXNE showcase heavy on synths with dark, atmospheric duo TRUST, dramatic singer Katie Stelmanis (who backed up Zola Jesus the night before), glammy Diamond Rings (whose new 12" is the first release by the label) and Big Freedia (whose pictures you already saw). Pictures of the costumed Diamond Rings, who played to a packed and dancing hometown crowd that night, are in this post.

Now NYC can get a taste. As mentioned a few times already, Diamond Rings play that show at Glasslands, tonight, July 16th with Caribou (DJ Set), Class Actress, Teengirl Fantasy and Idiot Glee (RSVP), and if you miss it, there's one more chance to catch the tall Canadian in town on Sunday...

Another case of image based music... Yawn.

Posted by Ray | July 16, 2010 4:35 PM

Image or not, "Show me Your Stuff" is a killer song.

"Image or not, "Show me Your Stuff" is a killer song."

WRONG

Diamond rings = crappy singing over preset garage band loops.
Watch him hit the space bar on the Mac and prance around in his tootoo.
It truly doesn't get worse then this.

lets here it for gimmicks!

All it takes now to get noticed is a good stylist.
If you have zero musical talent, but some homo to dress you up like a clown, someone will book you.
What a sad state. Where is Robert Johnson?

Posted by Ray | July 16, 2010 4:59 PM

Wow Rey, you managed to work "fag", "homo", and "tootoo" into three comments in 20 minutes flat. You might be eligible for a homophobic world record!

Saturday the 17th or Sunday the 18th?

This is Disney's newest wunderkid, right?

Sunday the 18th. I knew something was weird (Todd needs to update his page too)
updated, thanks

Posted by brooklynvegan | July 16, 2010 5:13 PM

also, "Ray" is an idiot. I'm conflicted on whether i should be deleting the homophobic comments. We're already talking about them.

Posted by brooklynvegan | July 16, 2010 5:18 PM

who the fuck is that?

Hey Brooklyn Vegan-- please don't resort to censoring bigots like Ray. Erasing posts does not make homophobia go away. Just let the weird hatemongers expose themselves. We are all adults and can make up our own minds. Just please don't start erasing posts. The anonymous posts (however stupid or brilliant) are one of the main reasons to keep coming back to this site.

Posted by The Truth | July 16, 2010 8:47 PM

BV didnt say he would erase all anonymous posts. I assume he only meant that he would delete the ones that are clearly intended to offend. I would delete offensive posts if I was in charge. I wouldnt want my website to turn into a forum for anonymous posters to spew their hate just to get a reaction out of others.

Fuuuucck. I'd hit it.

Look at that picture, and you can figure out where the term "queer" came from.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2010 9:55 AM

great show from Diamond Rings last night. Dude writes incredible songs. Fuck you homophobes.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2010 10:24 AM

"Queer: c.1500, "strange, peculiar, eccentric," from Scottish, perhaps from Low Ger. (Brunswick dialect) queer "oblique, off-center," related to Ger. quer "oblique, perverse, odd," from O.H.G. twerh "oblique," from PIE base *twerk- "to turn, twist, wind" (related to thwart). The verb "to spoil, ruin" is first recorded 1812. Sense of "homosexual" first recorded 1922; the noun in this sense is 1935, from the adj."

Not really sure how I could gather that from the picture.

I wish contemporary musicians were as a whole more influenced by "Low" and his other Berlin albums as opposed to his Ziggy years.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2010 1:24 PM

hard to win here. his album is amazing. makeup and feathers or no makeup and feathers. deciding based on photos is a bummer.

nothing better than stuffing your balls into Gold American Apparel leggings!

Who cares if he's gay?

What I care about is how these "musicians" think dressing like you are a hooker from outer space (I'm talking to you Lady Gaga) will make you look beyond their crappy tunes. Just dress like a human being and make your music. Just b/c your a "musician" doesn't mean you have to dress up like an asshole. I hate that shit.

What's with that stupid get-up? Are people taking this for real? lol.

Posted by Omaha Junkkles | July 18, 2010 1:33 PM

why is this any less 'real' than Karen O?

This reminds me of something straight outta The Mighty Boosh.

Posted by Jim | July 18, 2010 2:17 PM

I don't understand all the homophobia. Somehow we worked backwards. Back in the Greek symposiums it was completely socially normal for men to hook up with other men, sex wasn't judged like it is now. The white catholic man stepped in and thought s'ing some d was absolutely terrible even though they were most likely doing it themselves.

Get over it. Who really cares what your sexually preferences are. Music is music, being gay doesn't make you a better or worse artist. I bet you like Vampy Weeky--or you don't because one of their members is openly gay.

It's 2010--not 1845, get over it or move to the deep south where you can hate on everything that isn't you.
