Obits @ the Bell House Saturday night
Obits

Obits celebrated the release of their new record with a Brooklyn show at the Bell House on Saturday night. Some video evidence lies below. Those up in Northampton can catch the band Thursday night as they tour up to Canada. Their full list of tour dates is below.

Later this month you can catch Obits help pay tribute to Brendan Majewski in Brooklyn, though don't expect Obits songs if you go to that April 20th Union Pool show (though maybe they'll play some).

Do expect Obits songs though at the NYC gig Obits is playing even sooner. You can catch them for free (but you should buy a record while you're there) at Generation Records on April 16th aka Record Store Day with The Jay Vons (mems Reigning Sound, Robbers On High Street), I Hate Our Freedom (mems of Texas Is The Reason, Thursday), and Spa Castles. DJ sets from Tom Scharpling from WFMU will sweeten the deal, and the shindig kicks off at 1PM (doors at 11AM). The show will also double as a release party for The Bouncing Souls' "Live At Generation Records" 12-inch and OFF!'s "Live At Generation Records" 7-inch.

More details, all dates and those Bell House videos, below...

Obits @ The Bell House

Obits @ The Bell House

Generation Records

's that time of year - when the vinyl nerds emerge from their dusty caves in the pursuit of limited edition pieces of wax. Also known as RECORD STORE DAY!!!

As anybody who has come to the store over the last few years can attest to, RSD is so much more at Generation. It's a full-on celebration. This year, along with the usual hi-jinks, we'll be celebrating the vinyl release of The Bouncing Souls "Live At Generation Records" 12-...inch and OFF!'s "Live At Generation Records" 7-inch.

So while you look over the list of RSD releases coming out, we'd like to announce the initial lineup for our 3rd annual RSD in-store extravaganza. Drumroll please...

PERFORMANCES BY:
OBITS (New record out now on Sub Pop! Members of Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu)
THE JAY VONS (members of Reigning Sound, Robbers On High Street)
I HATE OUR FREEDOM (members of Texas Is The Reason, Thursday. New record out on Mightier Than Sword Records)
SPA CASTLES (Mysterious Brooklyn-based troublemakers)
+ more TBA!

DJ SETS BY:
TOM SCHARPLING OF WFMU'S BEST SHOW
ERIC DAVIDSON OF NEW BOMB TURKS
+ more TBA!

RSD 2011 goes down on Saturday, April 16th. Doors open at 11 am. Bands start at 1 pm. We'll have final list of performers, DJs and set times for you soon. PLEASE NOTE! We can't hold any RSD records for you so please get there early! Be sure to check out our sister store, Bleecker Street Records at 239 Bleecker St in the West Village.

Hope to see on 4/16!

It was pretty fast getting in and LCD goes on at 915 but I'd get there at like 845 just to be safe.

Sad times when BKVegan doesn't report the new Beastie Boys single. WTF?

Posted by DB | April 7, 2011 10:10 AM

More sad that you actually think a new beastie Boys album will be relevant.

Enjoy your past...time to move on pal.

^More sad how you think that your new black wolf sweater, My Chemical Romance pillowcase and your comment will ever be relevant. Beastie Boys are kings. Nuff said joker.

^^ You have just pigeonholed yourself as an unfortunate, pathetic child as reflected by your point and palate of references. Nice try kid...get lost!

I read something about Merle Allin playing in this Spa Castles band. Is this true?????

Posted by GG4ever | April 7, 2011 12:17 PM

Spa Castles freaks me out! Talk about Germ Castle.

Posted by The Real Real Yup. PERIOD | April 7, 2011 12:29 PM

I heard Spa Castles are working with Rick Ruben. Is that true?
