Obits @ Knitting Factory
Obits

Obits played two hometown nights in a row at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn over the weekend. On Friday, November 12th, the packed show was with Shark? and Jawbreaker frontman Blake Schwarzenbach's band forgetters. Saturday night was with Bottomless Pit (ex-Silkworm) and Black Helicopter. Pictures from Friday are in this post, as is a full video stream of Obits' performance, captured by the Knitting Factory livestream, from that night (below in two parts).

Obits are now resting for the holidays, but will head out on a proper, albeit short, Southeastern tour in the new year with Gentleman Jesse and His Men who meanwhile have New Years Eve and New Years Day shows scheduled at the Earl in Atlanta with Gringo Star and Noot d' Noot. Gentleman Jesse and His Men played a show at Knitting Factory back on 10/22 (CMJ), and Knitting Factory taped that, and you can watch that in full below too.

Tour dates and more pictures and those videos, below...

wait the forgetters drummer started off without a shirt and then put one on mid set?

I don't think the photos are chronologically accurate there. I don't remember him having a shirt at the end of the set. Granted I wasn't paying too much attention. Awesome show. Missed shark? Forgetters and obits were super great though.

obits were great this night, twangy interplay between guitars evoked spaghetti westerns, rhythm section was stone solid, can't wait to hear their next record...@11:07, was your comment worth it? when I'm 80 and still playing, will you be 40, picking yr nose and typing out snotty remarks about the age of whoever just rocked out onstage?

I was in NYC from Canada for the weekend and was lucky to check out this show. Obits killed it as expected, but Forgetters really stole the show for me. From their EP I wasn't completely sure what to expect, but was really blown away. Here's hoping they get north of the border at somepoint.

forgetters were great, and they played an album's worth of material. hoping that will show up soon.
