Symbolism?
Skins

In case you somehow missed the crush of commercials on cable television, MTV has a new and possibly NSFW show called Skins based on a UK series about teens, sex, drugs, mental health and family. Skins, whose demographic seems to be "hip teens" who like nudity (read: teens) and pervy would-be pedophiles, will be celebrated at a FREE NYC party at the tail end of this week.

Rusko, Sleigh Bells, Klever, Drop the Lime, and Kill the Noise will perform at an undisclosed NYC location on January 14th. The party jumps off at 10PM and you must be 16 to get in ("16 to party, 21 to drink."). More details, and directions on how to get in are on the Facebook invite though even with an RSVP, "ENTRY BASED ON CAPACITY AND IS NOT GUARANTEED."

Sleigh Bells' "Kids" is the theme song to Skins, which premieres on Jan 17th. And the show is Sleigh Bells' only U.S. appearance in the coming months. The duo will spend the rest of January into February in Europe. All dates are listed below.

'Skins' party DJ Rusko went on a HARD Fest tour over the summer with Crystal Castles, Sinden & Destructo, though he wasn't on the bill when the tour hit NYC's Terminal 5 in August. Rusko won't be there either when Crystal Castles and Destructo play the same NYC venue on March 18th, 2011 (also a HARD show), and Rusko won't be there when HARD and Destructo return to Terminal 5, one night later, for a March 19th show with Simian Mobile Disco, Skream and Benga, and Fake Blood. Tickets are on sale. It's a "HARD Weekend" (flyer below).

Before then, Simian Mobile Disco are going on tour with Juan Maclean and Blondes (dates below). After then, Crystal Castles, Simian Mobile Disco AND RUSKO (and many others) will play the Ultra Music Festival in Florida (Friday, March 25, Saturday, March 26 and Sunday, March 27, 2011 in downtown Miami's Bicentennial Park). Currently announced lineup at the link.

That MTV Live show with Sleigh Bells months back want bad but you could just tell from the audience there that new obnoxious teeny boppers would wind up bolstering behind them. I think its safe to say they sold out to MTV.

Posted by citybug | January 12, 2011 8:17 PM

great job BV on leaking this DAYS after it was out there in the open and the RSVP list closed. you do realize that 10k people and then some got to this before you posted it? #abitslowontheuptake

i'm convinced mtv is run by some next level halliburton evil dudes.

Remember when girls gone wild was considered risque. Now they're making a regular TV show with the same plot.

we read BV so therefore we're superior to the rest of the riff raff. letz all go listen 2 the new Grizzly bear album on vinyl.

teens, sex and drugs. what about hummus?

Posted by Anonymous | January 12, 2011 10:03 PM

This is like some thing for rich kids from Manhattan who start blowing lines when theyre 12 anyway. None of them will ever have to work so whats it matter if they blow off life... guess im jealous.

i think smd can fill terminal 5 easily. am i nuts?

Posted by Anonymous | January 12, 2011 11:18 PM

The UK show is actually an amazing show. I think you have to see it, but it's not like "hey here's a bunch of nudity for shock value." It's really well done, and I wonder how this one will be. If it's anything like the original it will easily be the best show MTV has aired in the past 10 years. I just know that MTV will find a way to fuck it up.

11:21 = Like, so gay

If anyone of these 16 year olds gets too drunk; hopefully, they ate a lot of hummus. That way they will just throw up hummus while a hungry person will reach for some pitas and just scoop up the hummus as a late night snake.

This show is going to be so so awful.

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2011 1:33 AM

You really can't win here. There are the "ZOMG ITS RUSKO + SLEIGH BELLS + I'M A STUPID 16 YEAR OLD AND WANNA GET FUCKED UP AND DANCE" crowd and on the other hand the "I already saw Sleigh Bells before they blew up and played this kind of bullshit I'm too good for this MTV advertisement so fuck it they're retards". But seriously BV, this was out there in the open days ago. Were you too busy seeing buzzbands and eating hummus to post this?

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2011 1:40 AM

there is not much I would like to attend less. Imagining the people that will be attending this is enough to make me cringe

Why all the hate on BV for being a little late on this...not like anyone cares about it anyway

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2011 9:27 AM

when is some crazed BV reader going to burn terminal 5 down? also where is the post on mountain jam 2011 BV? i thought that was some pretty big news!

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2011 9:34 AM

why even bother mentioning it if RSVP is already closed at the time the post is made

Posted by Anonymous | January 13, 2011 9:43 AM

If 9:12 is correct, I almost want to go sit outside, and watch the shitshow unfold.

Reminds me of something the characters in Gossip Girl would go to.

i'd like to see simian mobile disco but not if it means going to terminal 5.

It's nice to see that the younger generation is enjoying hummus.

If MTV gets control of hummus it will be like the Nazi's getting control of the Ark of the Covenant. Then all of our faces will melt off.

FUCK this party. i RSVP'd while RSVP was open, and today I get an email saying that due to overwhelming demand, they are unable to accomodate my RSVP. so they picked and chose who could come? whack

Show up anyway and jump the line.
