TPOBPAH @ the 2010 Siren Festival (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
The Pains of BEing Pure at Heart

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart were destined to eventually play a BrooklynVegan show. I had them on the lineup of a SXSW day party in 2009, but they showed up late and never got to play their set. I tried to have them on a lineup of a SXSW day party in 2010, but they had to drop off before I even announced it (which is way better than cancelling after I announce it). Take three... I'm very happy to announce most of the lineup of the fourth annual official BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase (the first was at Bowery Ballroom, then Music Hall, then Music Hall again). It takes place at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday, October 21st, 2010 (7pm doors).

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart will headline the show (or "play last" as I like to call it on these showcases). Also on the bill: The Blow, Yuck, a special guest I can't announce yet, and as previously mentioned, Young Man! I'm really excited for this one and partially because of the special guest who I've also been trying to get to do a BV show for a while (that's about the only clue I can give until I can announce it - not that it's a good clue). Set times TBA.

UPDATE 1: Screaming Females are the special guest.

UPDATE 2: Yuck cancelled and were replaced by Suuns.

Tickets go on AmMEhx presale on Wednesday, 8/18, at noon. General sale starts the following Friday at noon. You can also get in with your CMJ badge (first come, first served).

For the Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Yuck it will be one of three shows the two bands will play together (the others are Philly and Boston). All dates below...

The 2nd band's name defines the music of the first band. Great touring gimmick.

aMEHX is right!! Fuck them, they dropped me because of 1 bad report on my credit. I was never late w/ an AMehx payment but still dropped me.

You suck! AMEX kicks your ass.

Pay the yearly Amex fee for a shitty membership reward. Not worth it.

Amex gives terrible blowjobs on the Williamsburg Waterfront while listening to Sleigh Bells.

I'm utterly shocked at the low amount of snarky, meaningless, rant-filled/MEH-sprinkled comments for this post.

C'mon, people!! You're slacking off on the job here! Let's go! Go! GO! We need more sarcastic reactions!!

Remember when Grizzly Bear got caught doing blow during their set last summer?

i hope the special guest you can't announce yet is THINK ABOUT LIFE because they are one of the BEST BANDS.

"i hope the special guest you can't announce yet is THINK ABOUT LIFE because they are one of the BEST BANDS. "

Think About Life have played at least two BrooklynVegan shows so base on the clue I doubt that is true.

when brooklyn vegan acknowledges "meh", and uses it in the word "aMEHx". it's time for a new commenter meme.

Posted by joke's over | October 18, 2010 5:17 PM

The Pains & The Blow! YES!!! See you (but none of these other assclowns who've posted) there!

I love my AmEx rewards but i get so pissed that these credit cards aren't accepted often. I don't carry much cash on me either so it's really f'ed up.

Posted by Roy | February 23, 2011 7:17 PM

just looking back remembering how awesome this show was...also felt the need to agree with your aMEHx joke haha i love my chase mastercards
