"Just got back from it. Didn't stick around for the cowboys & indians dance party, though I probably should have. I was faced on mushrooms the whole night and felt like the place was being overrun by 16 year olds. Twice some dumb scantily-clad broads approached me to ask if I'd buy them drinks cos they were only "20". This was very different from the demographic I imagined Prince Rama and Deakin would be playing for.

Really bummed out about the arrest of Michael from Prince Rama, and the subsequent abridged setlist. But still they sounded really amazing, and Deakin's set was very cool. It's a shame most people there didn't seem to give much of a shit about the live music.

Can't believe I didn't stick around longer. What did I miss? But don't tell me a bunch of half naked 18 year old girls with face paint prancing around, beseeching older men to buy them drinks. Because I was there for that.

P.S. I was the awkward weirdo in the blue hoodie.

The show described above too place in Massachusetts on Tuesday. The show pictured in this post took place place at Glasslands on Monday (9/13), one night earlier. It was Deakin of Animal Collective's first NYC solo show with an assist from current tour/label mate Prince Rama, and Silk Flowers and Amen Dunes.

The trek continues for Prince Rama/Deakin, who play Montreal tonight and scoot across the west coast until the end of September. After that, Prince Rama will then link up with Light Pollution for another tour that kicks off in Chicago in early October before they both play NYC on 10/21 as part of the Carpark/Paw Tracks CMJ Showcase at Cake Shop. More details on that showcase TBA.

It's unclear why the guy from Prince Rama got arrested, but the above account makes at least three times I heard about it.

Prince Rama's new LP, Shadow Temple, is out now via Paw Tracks, dig on one track from the LP, "Lightening Fossil", downloadable above. Light Pollution's new LP, Apparitions, is out now also, and features "Witchcraft" available for download above.

Full tour dates and tons of pics from Glasslands are below...

Scantily-clad 18 year olds. Sounds awful.

Deakin's set was really cool tho. a lil rough around the edges - but definitely look forward to the studio material

I didn't make it to the show but i highly support deakin's work. I really like that pantha du prince remix he did this year

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 5:08 PM

was there the whole night and did not encounter anyone under 21, all bands were great

"P.S. I was the awkward weirdo in the blue hoodie."

If you have to add this, you're not worth knowing.

When I was in college, girls who could barely play *might* have gotten the courage to do one song with someone else's instruments after a real band played. Today, they get record deals and gigs in real venues. Are today's youths really this indiscriminating?

Glasslands is 21+, isn't it? If someone could get into the place to see the show, they would be able to buy a drink.

Girls claiming to be only 20 probably just didn't want to pay for drinks and thought weird in hoodie would buy drinks for them.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 5:23 PM

you had to be 21 to get in, everyone in the venue was seen as "21" by the bartenders. those girls probably wanted you, dropped the jailbait ball my friend.
Michael was held for questioning due to a false harassment claim months prior to the show, or so i was told. hope everything works out for him.

Yeah that above review was about the show in Boston. Seems brooklynvegan peruses Collected Animals from time to time.

@5:19...no talent girls might get a record "deal" and a "gig" but they are not getting any real money so don't get your panties in a bunch.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 6:00 PM

the title of that thread from the collected animals forum where that review was posted is "deakin + prince rama at middle east cambridge, MA"...

i was around til the end. there definitely wasnt any dance party after

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 6:03 PM

am i the only one who combed the web for 30 minutes looking for a weekly "indie electro dance party" at glasslands filled with painted 20 year old girls?

what a let down to find out the review was about the show in MA

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 6:11 PM

6:00 Right, but they are being treated like genuine musicians, which is bad enough.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 6:14 PM

the review is from the next night, sorry about that. post updated. I got confused because the arrest happened in NYC and didn't notice the title of the thread.

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 15, 2010 6:23 PM

I was up at the Boston show last. Deakin was really good. A lot of his tracks were similar to his Pantha remix earlier this year and also felt like some of those really spaced out early 90s Slowdive B-sides ... dreamy but percussive...even a bit like Seefeel at times. Looking forward to him releasing some songs soon. That said the crowd was awful....why book an electronic/ambient/singer to open some college dance party(yeah yeah AnCo...but its not)? Most kids talked right though his set and didn't care.

who the fuck is prince rama

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 7:16 PM

prince rama's new record is surprisingly dope.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 7:37 PM

does this prince rama thing seem kinda racist?

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 8:15 PM

5:25, show was 18+

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 8:29 PM

Should I expect more scantily clad 18 year olds at the next Prince Rama outing?

Prince Rama are very talented, and make interesting and original music. If it's not your thing, that's fine. It's idiosyncratic enough that it won't click for many people. So what?

Posted by Jed | September 15, 2010 9:30 PM

theres not enough shrooms in the world for me to like this shit

8:57 - you sound like a failure, jealous because some other band is on tour and you're not. The room was totally packed, and hey PopGun sucks at promoting, so don't hate. Celebrate!

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 10:45 PM

LOL i remember seeing captain blue hoodie. dude looked like a total nutcase just sitting there, motionless, staring at the stage whenever i saw him. handsome fella, so he probably thought the girls were just "beseeching" him for drinks when in fact they were possibly hitting on him for his cock. poor guy. missed out on the pussy for some mushrooms! don't do drugs, kids :(

Posted by joies | September 19, 2010 9:14 PM

PRINCE RAMA---I wish they were actually authentic. just trying to be cool and use hindu stuff in their music. LAME.

Posted by anonymous | September 19, 2010 9:17 PM
