Forgetters at Generation Records (cred)

Lest we... um, fail to remember... Forgetters have a ton of shows on the horizon with bands as varied as Hard Skin and The Rival Mob (tickets), Obits (at Knitting Factory 11/12, tickets), and a show TONIGHT (9/28) where the band will team up with Shellshag and Ververitse to play Death By Audio.

Shellshag has a few other shows coming up too. The band will play another FOUR NYC shows in the coming month. On 10/9 look for the band to play ABC No Rio with Homeowners, Aye Nako, & Mirrors and Wires and on 10/15 they'll be back at Death By Audio with The Measure [sa], Bridge and Tunnel, The New Dress, & Zombie Dogs. The next day (10/16) look for Shellshag at Lulu's with Landlord, The Fish, and Marvin Berry and The New Sound (excellent Back To The Future reference), and 10/28 will see the Brooklyn band play Bruar Falls with Hartwell & Dirty Excuse.

Forgetters last shared the stage with BELLS≥ at Cake Shop. According to one German review of the Cake Shop show which I just translated in Google:

"Quite different, post-rock and instrumental beat tones involved four men from the Bells. Two Guitars interweaving into one another, accurate drums, a driving bass and the knowledge of the history of two members of bands such as Jawbox and the 2009 resolution, most recently at SubPop domiciled Oxford Collapse, provide a spellbound end and enthusiastic audience. Bells maintain a remarkable own blog, which also contains beautiful photos of this gig can be found further on."
BELLS≥ have a new coming up in the very near future.. at Bruar Falls in Brooklyn on 10/8 with The Carribean, Video Daughters, and Y/Y.

I love Jawbox, but seriously - Bells are shite! It's an obvious bullcrap side project for Zach. He obviously isn't taking this project seriously. It's god awful, boring music for the pathetically lame.

too much noodling in Bells. I love Jawbox, but I agree. This is not a serious project. it's super boring and directionless.
