Cassie Ramone (the Babies) @ Death By Audio on 8/13 (more by Eric Rex)
"My solo stuff is hard to describe, I haven't been too active about it because I'm really shy, and it's hard for me open up. With Vivian Girls Katy is not shy, she's really good at saying, "listen to my band, come and see my show!" Which I think is awesome, and is one of the reason we were able to do so well because she's so enthusiastic about everything she does, but I'm not like that, I'm more introverted with my artistic endeavors. My stuff that's not Vivian girls is more folksy I would say. I have some keyboard organ songs, it's all over the place really, but I think I'm going to try to record an album over the summer, if I can get it together enough." [CASSIE RAMONE]Cassie Ramone of the Vivian Girls keeps herself busy. In addition to her side-project called the Babies, Cassie is, like A.J. McLean of the Backstreet Boys (and her VG bandmate Kickball Katy), working on a solo album. Maybe she'll play some of those songs at her solo show happening at Don Perdo in Brooklyn tonight (8/19). The Impose-presented gig will also feature a headlining set by White Mystery and more. Flyer below.
White Mystery was last here from Chicago in April, and have no more NYC shows scheduled after tonight, but are on tour. All dates and videos from their Cake Shop show (which I posted one other time coincidentally in a post that was topped by a picture of Cassie Ramone) below.
The Babies played Death By Audio with Ty Segall and Royal Baths over the weekend. Their next scheduled show is September 24th at Cake Shop where they'll share a bill with Garotas Suecas, Sundelles and Holger.
Vivian Girls have upcoming shows too - soon even. You can catch them in their college town of New Brunswick, NJ on Saturday night at a place called Fuck Mountain. It's a basement show. Big Troubles and Coasting are also on the bill which is convenient for Coasting drummer Fiona who is in both bands. Vivian Girls are also playing ATP NY. All dates below..
The August edition sees Chicago's venerable Miss Alex White bringing her band White Mystery to our fair city. Helping to welcome her are some of our favorite friends including Philly's finest garage pop duo Reading Rainbow, Beets-offshoot Easter Vomit, and Vivian Girls' Cassie Ramone doing a solo set.
Come hang with us over cheap beers and great music.
