Duo Bass Drum of Death released their debut, LP GB City, via Fat Possum on April 12th, 2011, and are on tour now in support of it. That tour brought them to NYC this weekend for two shows. They're opening for Crocodiles and The Fresh & Onlys tonight (4/23) at Music Hall, and last night they played their own show at Glasslands which is where these pictures are from.

UPDATE: Make that three shows. they also play at 1:30am Saturday night at Shea Stadium with Unknown Mortal Orchestra who play Pianos Sunday night.

with a name like "bass drum of death" and hailing from the south i maybe expected too much from these guys, that being said i really didn't know why i was shocked when they sounded like every pop-psych-twee-grunge band from bushwick, when will we as music fans get over this shit? i might go hibernate until then

"They sounded like every pop-psych-twee-grunge band from bushwick"

Because most "pop-psych-twee-grunge bands from bushwick" are influenced by what goes on in the South.

I arrived too late to hear their whole set, but they were the best part of the Fresh and Onlys show. But then again I really like 2 piece bands.
Bought the cd and liked what I heard on first listen. Sort of have a Jeff the Brotherhood feel.

this was a great fucking show. don't listen to these dicks criticizing this band and probably didn't even make it out.

I saw these guys in 99 when they were called The Hives.

The Hives were a fun live band...
