BSS in Central Park (more by Matthew Eisman)
Broken Social Scene

As you know, Broken Social Scene play Terminal 5 on January 18th with Here We Go Magic. Tickets are still available for all of you procrastinators, but for all of you agoraphobics (and people who just can't make it for one reason or another like maybe you don't even lve in NY) I have some great news. The entire show will be streamed live at 9PM EST, on the Bowery Presents Youtube channel.

The show is one of two upcoming dates for Here We Go Magic, who have also scheduled a secret show in Philadelphia, PA at an undisclosed location on 1/22 with NIGHTLANDS, Ape School, and Norwegian Arms. Keep your eyes on the Facebook invite.

In other Arts & Crafts-related news, Chilly Gonzales is scheduled to play Joes's Pub in NYC tomorrow (1/14), a one off for the composer/songwriter and his only current tour date. Tickets are still available. Chilly was in residence at the same NYC venue during February of last year.

Chilly Gonzales recently released a new video for "You Can Dance" from his 2010 LP Ivory Tower. That video and others, as well as all tour dates are below.

umm, i think it's not sold out because the tics are 40 freakin dollars and we've all spent way too much on this band already...

...even though they're a solid live act

I think this will be the first time BSS won't be having "sold out" show in NYC.....

Good job people who haven't bought tickets!

Fuck Terminal 5!

Pick a better venue next time BSS:)

You know the deal....

Fuck $40 tickets for an "indie rock" band.

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2011 10:21 PM

tickets are 35 at the box office, 40 with ticketmaster fees, and its really not that much. what were you expecting them to be? bare minimum it would be 25 box/30 ticketmaster. so it's 10 dollars more than the absolute minimum it could have been.

11:21 thats cool that 40bucks isnt much for you.
its also cool that i will never ever see you at any shows ever.

Nothing like pricing out the unsavory element. I mean, have you ever tried to go to a FREE show? it's a madhouse. So maybe it'll be a good show for once at T5. No hipsters packed in (and smelling) like sardines.

So apparently it's hip to only like bands who sell tickets within a certain price range? Like, when their tickets go beyond 40 bucks, their music automatically sucks and is worthless? Nice

umm, a band's gotta be worth it for the price. to pay $40 for the pleasure of going to t5, it's got to be a top-line act. i've driven to philly to see a band and avoid t5. bss doesn't fit the bill, not worth it. streaming.. eh, maybe i'll check in while i enjoy a snack of hummus.

I don't mind paying $40 for a good show. I actually rather pay for a ticket and not have to endure a free show that attracts scenesters (although BSS have done their share of free shows in NYC including a great set at Other Music).

I am not going because the show is at T5. I just do not like that venue.

bss is my favorite band, but i have been boycotting T5 since it opened.

Posted by Anonymous | January 14, 2011 8:18 PM

The Lexus sponsorship is bizarre, to say the least.
