Glad I didn't miss it!" - BeyondBeyondisBeyond

King Tuff

King Tuff (aka Kyle Thomas who also happens to be in Witch and Feathers and Happy Birthday) headlined (an actual birthday party) at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn last night (1/20) with support from Frankie Rose & The Outs and Nude Beach. That's Tuff above, and more pictures of the show are below.

Frankie Rose & The Outs' next and only upcoming show is with MINKS and Dum Dum Girls at Bowery Ballroom on March 4th. Tickets are still available.

Nude Beach (the NY band) will join Nomos and The Men for a FREE show at Generation Records at 2PM on Sunday (1/23). Nude Beach is replacing Pregnant on the in-store bill, who recently dropped off of the show but is still scheduled to play Cake Shop on Mar 18 with Black Wine & Big Eyes. Bone up for Cake Shop by checking out their self-titled LP, out on vinyl now, but you can preview that LP on digital form above.

Generation Records is also a bit of a homecoming show for Nomos and The Men, as both bands recently came back from a two week tour of the West Coast which saw them share dates with Mammoth Grinder, Hatred Surge, Skin Like Iron, Walls, and many others. Both bands released LPs in 2010; Nomos dropped Notes From The Acheron in September (order it) while The Men are currently on their second pressing of Immaculada after initially releasing it in May (snag one).

Witch, in addition to Tuff, also features J Mascis, who just announced some solo acoustic dates, as did his Dinosaur Jr bandmate Lou Barlow with his project, Sebadoh.

When is Frankie gonna do another topless photo shoot?
The last one was good, but the classic witchcraft vibe started to freak me out.

Both guitarist in Franky play with way too many pedal effects. It was affecting me in bad way. Quit hiding behind the reverb and stop dressing like Williamsburg puked up your outfit.
King Tuff's "Was Dead" is a great record, no doubt about it. The live band needs a new drummer and bassist. They struggled a lot. The guitar players were fun at least.

lol. quit hiding behind the reverb!!!!! yeah!!! it really makes mistakes disappear or something, somehow. certainly isn't a harmless effect that fattens up a phil spectory sound. you aren't worthy of stealing don was's name. keep the hipster puke rage words to your twitter

The Mazzy Star cover is tipping your pitches a bit much.

Pedal boards are for wannabees and pros.

i liked hearing all of those king tuff songs

frankie rose should get rid of the bowler hat

anyone trying to make a connection to between the band name nude beach any other contemporary band with like one somewhat synonymous word in their name is really grasping for something to hate on. They've been playing with that name for years, by the way, before I think a lot of the bands being referenced were even around.

I like Frankie's hat

good to see king tuff back on the road. their rcord is a classic!

I like Frankies band and all, I just hate how reverb drenched girl bands in Brooklyn thinks they are the shit. I wouldn't think this way if their drummer wasn't a bitch to me the last time i saw them. its hard to put their record on sometimes because of their "i'm better than you because i am in a girl band from brooklyn" attitude.

The real Dead Boys were a lot better.
