"Just remembered I threw up at bruar falls last night." - WAVVES

Wavves

"Monday night at New York City's Bowery Ballroom, the Wavves founder and frontman announced he'd just been "mildly sued" by the Walt Disney Company, which was less than psyched about seeing a song called 'Mickey Mouse' listed on his band's latest album.

Williams said he'd agreed to modify future pressings of 'King of the Beach,' out today on CD and vinyl, and replace the offending track with an unreleased B-side. He then offered a succinct legal critique of the plaintiff's case.

"Walt Disney was a Nazi," Williams said. "You go [to Disney World], you feel Nazi vibes. It's disgusting!"

The outburst was one of many quotable moments of the concert, and throughout the evening, Williams and drummer Billy Hayes spent nearly as much time joking about booze and weed as they did playing actual songs. With the presence of soft-spoken metal-dude bassist Stephen Pope, Wavves was like a Kevin Smith movie come to life: two Jays and a Silent Bob." [Spinner]

Last night (8/2) Wavves played Bowery Ballroom, their last New York City show before the just-announced September 21st show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets on sale Friday at noon, AmEx presale Wednesday at noon). That is followed by opening for Phoenix at Madison Square Garden on October 20th (and other tour dates). A line began to form at the venue around 7:15 p.m. with people hoping a few tickets would still be available. The show sold out by 7:30 p.m.

The night began with a 30 minute set by Total Slacker who took the stage at 8:15. They were followed by The Smith Westerns who also played a 30 minute set as the crowd quickly began to fill the 550+ person venue.

Wavves began their set at 10:20 p.m. and immediately after walking on stage commented on the thick smell of drugs in the air, saying, "It smells like pot out here. It smells like a lot of pot." Throughout the course of the 14 song performance, the rambunctious audience thrashed into each other and danced wildly. The level of audience interaction was much like it was at Wavves' recent show at Knitting Factory- fans freely jumped on and off stage, and bassist Stephen Pope even offered an audience member a swig of whiskey after asking, "Are you cool? You can have some if you're cool." The band finished up their set by 11:20 p.m.

They then headed to Bruar Falls for puking, peeing in garbage cans, sparring with Black Lips, playing video games, etc... More pictures and Wavves' setlist from Bowery Ballroom below...

Love the quote from Williams about Walt Disney. The term "mildly sued" sounds like a kind of skin rash you can get rid of after a few hours by applying generic lotion.

How is this shit band upsizing thier next venue to MHOW when this didn't sell out till about 9 last night?

Also, candiate for album of the year? Well, as any real music fan knows, when you have such a remarkable album, it is quite easy to replace one song with another and lose nothing from the album.

Kids, get this pressing if you can!!!! It may be worth something one day!!!!

You guys really like to put me on the spot

Um ok, so Walt Disney's Fantasia.

The reason that I like this animated medley of classical music so much, uh, aside from the fact that it's amazing is, um, I feel like it was kind of overlooked when it actually came out and now it's like this absolute classic animated medley of classical music. But, uh, when it was actually reviewed, when it came out, it really didn't do very...I mean it did well, but it didn't do extremely well. Rolling Stone at the time gave it like..I think 2 out of 5 stars or something like that. And then when they re-released it they said it was 5 out of 5 stars, when they did the next review. But it was just a very important animated medley of classical music in my formidable years and, um, it's a classic pop animated medley of classical music.

BV -- Is it really necessary to post ~75 pictures from any given show? You should learn to edit. No more than 10 of any set of pictures you ever post are worth looking at. Unfortunately, most people never even see the 10 or so decent pictures because they are buried in dozens of other shitty pictures of things like bottles of liquor at the fucking bar.

And the new Wavves album is pretty fucking fun. There's nothing Blink-182 about it other than the fact that they might both fall under the pop-punk genre. Saying they sound like them is saying you don't know how to talk about music.

I was at the show and it was great, I don't start hating on a band once the press decides they're not cool anymore because the guy mixes too much drugs and alcohol one night and has a melt down. Now that he's got a real band with him he's taken a quantum leap forward as a performer.

and dude at 2:24, the reason Wavves can upsize to MHOW is because they're, um, the same fucking size. 550 people. look it up.

oh wait! I forgot it's cool to hate Wavves now. in that case I take it all back. oh wait, I don't, because I learned to think for myself about the same time I learned to talk.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2010 11:59 PM

"How is this shit band upsizing thier next venue to MHOW when this didn't sell out till about 9 last night?"

Because that's who'd pay the guarantee. Chances are Bowery wasn't able to secure exclusivity, hurting the attendance of the initial show. Agents aren't concerned with filling rooms or making fun experiences. They want to ensure they're making as much money as possible/probable. They might get a percentage of ticket sales over their guaranteed fee if they had sold more Bowery, but they stood to make more money if they just set up a show with a guarantee elsewhere soon after. Sure, Brooklyn will be expected to pay less, but it still might edge out the possibity of a Bowery sellout by a few hundred or even thousand dollars. No doubt the agent would prefer if both shows sold out, but it's not something they hold out for, and they aren't going to lift a finger to ensure it. They'd rather watch a venue deplete its resources to promote dead-end shows.

Hence the New York scene is suffering, Manhattan especially but Brooklyn too. The question as to if this is good to artists in a time when record sales aren't amounting to much of anything. What they take away from these shows isn't exactly a fortune either. But does it benefit them in the long run to play to empty rooms? If fans come to desolate shows with depressed bar staff, will they come back again? These are the questions that artists probably should consider but don't.

On the flipside: Can an artist's (in this case... Wavves) talent and drive last to the point where long term considerations even matter?

So bands can't really be blamed for wanting the quick buck, agents will pursue self-serving goals as long as money exists, show attendance will continue decline (as the industray news outlets have been reminding us over and over this year), and talent buyers are left at a disadvantage (notice their high turnover rate in NYC). The fans will always be blissfully unaware of all of this, so it's up to venues and talent buyers, already at each others throats, to organize for lower prices. I wouldn't hold my breath.

I don't understand why everyone has such negative things to say. The show was not bad. The bands were not bad. The pictures are not bad. The audience was not bad. They all seemed to be having fun, so I'm assuming everyone writing obnoxious comments is doing so simply because they want something to complain about.

Unfortunately for Disney, they seem to be hitting a few financial roadblocks. I'm sure it's really nothing major, but in case you'd like to know more, here's a good place to look: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=3VK618AMK6J6&preview=article&linkid=d338d04d-cd79-4a2d-aaae-a2ab09882b62&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d

Waaves suck balls. The only reason that they are still around is because of pitchfork and BV circlejerking over their mystique and how rock-n-roll they are. Being a group of fucking douche bags who just fuck up got old a long time ago. Waaves suck. They're not about the music. Jay Reatard may not have always been able to function, the galager brothers always bickered, and Paul Doherty constantly ran into legal problems. At least, they were about the music. Fuck waaves. I hate them. They suck.

It is a disgusting and miserable world when a group as poorly-thought out and obnoxious at Total Slacker can continually pull the wool over this page's eyes. They shouldn't be dignified with a single photograph, much less a spot on the bill. The warm, loving comments saying "Tucker SHREDS!" are clearly only left by friends of the group, as nobody knows that chump's name with the exception of interested parties who have searched for his jazzbo YouTube videos in an attempt to soothe the pain that comes with knowing this band exists and occasionally plays with superior bands.

One of the single most upsetting moments of my life was watching this twerp repeatedly shout "TAAACCOOO PPPEEOOOPPPLLLEEE!" while dry-humping his guitar.

Fuck this rotten ass band, their friends, and any jackass who is moronic enough to put them on a bill.

The only thing worse than shouting "TAAACCOOO PPPEEOOOPPPLLLEEE!" would be shouting "HUUUUMMMMMMMMUUUSSSSS PPPEEOOOPPPLLLEEE!" like that jackass douchebag mother fucking lowlife pondscum twat that always wastes our time posting about humus.

That might be the closest thing to a good hummus comment I have ever seen. Quit while you are on top.

Also its been over 5 hours since somebody said it...Wavves blows!

Does anyone have Nathan from Wavves's address? I would like to send him a fresh batch of hummus to console him.

after reading these comments, some of you will think i'm a troll but while i was at the show and they were playing i was thinking "these guys are like early nirvana"

Here's the funny part . The boys who hate Total Slacker so vehemently have obviously seen many of their shows . Hmmmm , seems a little obsessive. Maybe a little sexually obsessed with the singer ? Hmmm ? Yeah !

How early a nirvana? Are we talking about Kurt Cobain at seven years old? Then, maybe.

9:59 - you're a moron. There's nothing obsessive about it, they just force their way onto every single bill possible. I've also had to deal with them at social situations. Also, how do you know we are not all women? I'm a dude, but I know plenty of intelligent young women who hate "Total Slacker" just as much as I do.

Also, were I a woman or homosexual man the absolute last person I would be interested in would be some fifth-rate G3-tour-wannabe-turned-Brooklyn-bozo with the ugliest paige boy I've ever seen and clothes entirely purchased at the boy's section at K-Mart in 1996.
