DOWNLOAD: Bird of Youth - "Stop Staring" (MP3)

Roky w/ Okkervil River @ Webster Hall in May (more by Kurt Christensen)
Roky Erickson

Austin songwriter Roky Erickson will be touring again in November. That includes at least two NYC-area shows. Those happen November 10th at the Bell House (tickets on sale Friday at noon) and November 12th at Maxwell's (tickets also on sale Friday at noon). More dates, including Boston, TBA.

Roky's most recent set of shows and album included Okkervil River as his backing band. That won't be the case this time, but you can catch Okkervil frontman Will Sheff when he plays a solo show at the Living Room on Tuesday, August 10th. That show is part of Bird of Youth's Tuesday in August residency at the Living Room. Bird of Youth (the band led by BK musician Beth Wawerna)'s other guests include Charles Bissell of the Wrens and Timothy Bracy's Collection Agency (ex-Mendoza Line). They all, or most of them, also contribute to Bird of Youth's upcoming debut album (MP3 from that above). No advanced tickets. A flyer for the residency is below...

there's no way to buy advance tix?
Website is confusing.

Living Room shows are usually free with a two drink minimum.

the living room is for people in their 30's, like the band Coasting.

Is Coasting the new hummus?

Once again, as soon as Skippy left the Bell House they start getting better bookings!

Because 30 is so old. Why even Roky is over 30.

People in their 20's in Brooklyn have to put on an act to propel themselves in bands that usually looks pretty sad.

I saw Bird Of Youth open for Roky and they had the balls to do a 13th floor elevators cover, which they said Roky ok'd - and ya know what? They pulled it off and it was GOOD.

8:42: YEAH! People who age past 29 are SO LAME! Tell It! Anybody who knows what's up stays far away from The Living Room to defy the physics of time!
Old = LOSERS. HAHAHAHA! LOL!

Yeah, please explain all this Coasting business. I think they have a hater.

The Living Room specializes in making you feel old. The music generally sucks. You'd be lucky to walk in on a random night and hear a band that is remotely interesting. Usually its a sappy, heart-on-your-sleeve, brand of adult contemporary. If its not that its over-simplified faux art/comedy acts that should have overdosed in the 70s. If you'd like to see first hand what I mean go see Pal Shazar or Kenny and the Eggplants. No joke, those are real acts.

I think Will Sheff has been spending too much time around Roky.

people in their twenties are really boring. Older people are much more interesting.
