Ty Segall @ Death by Audio
Ty Segall

Ty Segall and band stopped by on their current SXSW-inclusive tour for a pair of NYC gigs on Tuesday and Thursday. The first of those happened at a crammed Mercury Lounge, where the band played a 45-minute set that mixed Melted gems with new tunes. Last time I saw Ty, his voice was shredded from a day of grueling CMJ performances, and the set ended with a guitar-smashing outburst. Here, coming off a (hopefully relaxing) cruise, there were no such issues; Ty hit all the falsetto cues and edged down to a whisper for the quieter moments. Those lulls always have a way of roaring back, which is part of what makes Ty Segall such a compelling live act: the briefly empty spaces that explode into hair-flailing shred-work. The other part is the melodies, which are catchy and incredibly memorable, even if you can't tell what he's saying, or even what the songs are about ("Finger" something....??).

Ty's Thursday NYC show was at Death by Audio with Heavy Cream, Liquor Store, and Home Blitz. Hopefully Ty and the band will be back in New York soon (or at least by the release of his new disc, Goodbye Bread, on June 21). Heavy Cream (who have a new drummer) return to Death By Audio on April 2nd.

Once again, a douchelicious crowd. Jesus!

Liquor Store is the best new band in town - YEAAAAHHH BUDDYYYYY

Posted by Patrick | March 13, 2011 6:28 PM

Liquor Store are far from a "new band." Shit, they even slashed Jay Reatard's tires a few days before he died.

Posted by Anonymous | March 13, 2011 6:37 PM

"I will give anyone a hundred bucks per tire that they pop on the band liquor stores van ! Yes I'm serious 4:42 PM Jan 11th, 2010 via web"

Don't get too excited though. That offer has expired.

I love Ty Segall, and Home Blitz is awesome too. But man, what a bunch of CHUDs in that crowd.

Posted by Anonymous | March 13, 2011 8:39 PM

Yeah the bands were all pretty great. Ty's band was really tight. Why was the crowd half yupsterbros/half NYU freshman?

Remember how Liquor Store semi came under suspicion for Reatard's death after that tire slashing incident?

can brooklyn vegan commenters loosen their ass cheeks so the stick can drop out?

A petri dish of hipster soup. And they somehow made Death by Audio look dirtier than it usually is.
