How much?

How big is this place? 700 capacity?

Fire safety hazard venue I'm assuming since it's been booked by hipster lovers Todd P

Good. If hipsters can't defend themselves, they should just move back to Ohio.

They wear tight clothes and look like little girls anyway...you're just asking for it.

rich brats come from westchester, not ohio

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 11:20 AM

you know what's super cool? being a guy on a message board talking out his ass about "fire safety."

yeah let's talk building code. doood

also, it's a masonic temple that's 100 years old. pretty sure they've got their fire regulations in inorder, dumbass

Bromst is one of my favorite records from last year, but his live show, however brilliant in concept, was despicable. He acted like a precious drama queen throughout. He kept stopping to music to bitch about how everyone was too close to him, and how he hates to be touched, while he was IN the Goddamned crowd. It felt like getting berated by a shrill subsistute teacher, and sucked all the fun out of the show. The last straw for me came when he made everyone hold their arms out to the side, and said something like, if you're touching someone you're too close. Then he kept making everyone "TAKE ONE STEP BACK! GOOD!" etc. It was awful and he's a dick. I'll support his albums but will never see him live again.

Everyone keep an eye out for 4 hispanic guys in expensive baggy clothes looking to rob you.

Anon 11:24pm = Todd p intern

Jeez...don't you remember Market Hotel getting shut down?

Someone was just asking about fire safety cause you know it's going to be crowded so mind your own hipster business if you can't answer a simple question.

12:21? what the fuck are you talking about.
somebody (you, probly) was talking stupid shit, nobody was asking a question. you got called on it. you looked like a dumbfuck. deal wit it

i remember dan deacon from the nyc ska days singin' about his spectacles and how he likes his tuna w/ dolphins in it. true story.

In the event of a fire, it's important to keep low to the ground. If you're already on your knees servicing Todd P., like 11:24 and 12:32, you have a head start.

The buses to Monterrey will be waiting outside (or not).

this lineup is a sight for sore eyes.

shit is sucking lately. this summer's been total bullshit. a real lightning bolt show can bring this city back to life

Fact: Lightening Bolt stole their snare sound from 311.

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 1:34 PM

you know what's really sad? everything else going on in indieee music. lightning bolt are kings. go see 'em

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 1:38 PM

1:38, that's exactly my point. it's sad that lightning bolt have to resort to touring with a jerkoff like deacon.

dan deacon is not bad at all, and he's many degrees of magnitude better than the toothless bullshit bands getting play this year

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 2:52 PM

i can't believe dan deacon hasn't had this site taken down yet. i wonder if he still talks to any of these weirdos:

Lightning Bolt is around 10,000,000 times better than Dan Deacon. I hope they open the show and everyone leaves before Dan D!ckhead takes the stage. Totally faced!

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 3:22 PM

of all the people to have an axe to grind about, dan deacon has got to be about the oddest choice

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 3:38 PM

@ 3:38
Of all the ways to have constructed that sentence, yours has got to be about the oddest choice.

Posted by Scott | September 1, 2010 4:11 PM

I am glad this is the same night As Casiotone For the Painfully Alone's last show. Should make it easier to get into. The CFPA show that is. Way better than Dan Deacon.

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 4:43 PM

the two shows got combined FYI - Casio is on this lineup now

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 4:48 PM

what ever happened to death above 1979? they were better than LB.

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 6:17 PM

killer show. lineup's got casiotone on it now too

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 7:00 PM

Uhggg...that really sucks. Way to make Casiotone's last show ever in nyc not special at all...now he is going to be opening for two way more popular acts at a big venue...

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 9:10 PM

For a last show in NYC ever that does seem like an odd choice.

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2010 9:28 PM

it sounds like a fun way to go out, playing with people he admires.

Dan Deacon's music blows. It's just noise, seriously. Not commercially viable.
