Beets fans? (@ Don Hill's)
The Beets

As Bill pointed out, "The Beets kick off their winter tour at 285 Kent, with German Measles, Beach Arabs and Big Troubles. Their second LP, Stay Home, came out last month on Captured Tracks and is quite good and a slight step up the fidelity ladder from their debut." That tour-kickoff show happens tonight (2/17). The poster for it, all dates, and more pictures from a Fashion week show they played the other night at Don Hill's (it was the Rebecca Turbow Fall 2011 Presentation and and the DJ's were Peggy Wang of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Connor Hanwick of the Drums), below...

I mean I know geography is hard, but New York City geography ain't that bad. Soho is not Brooklyn.

wow. these so called "models" are really unattractive. I'm sure the Beets couldn't wait to get back to Jackson Heights away from all this bullshit.

Are those really models?

Totally off topic but the last time I saw The Beets , there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool

Totally off topic but the last time I read the comment regarding the amazingly annoying couple who were talking about TMI info, I always think back to a time when I brought a rather large container of hummus to a house party and when everyone was gathered around it dipping pita triangles into it I recall asking them, "Do like my seven and a half inch bowl of hummus? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool'

I hate the Beets too..... Fabrizio pinched my nipple once because I sort of look like Drew Barrymore's brother.

This band is terrible. Let's stop praising mediocrity, you guys.

I'm not at all ashamed to say that I would fuck every single one of those girls, and be very happy while doing so.

Are you serious?

The one of the right (toward the back) is ugly. The one of the left is not much better. The one in the middle is no looker, but I would have done her if I were single.

you dont need talent for authenticity, you just need the internet, some friends, and some good LP art

Beets and hummus make a nutritious party snack.
