definitely just made that $50 ticket much more worth it

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:15 PM

shouldn't this lineup be the other way around?

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:16 PM

really. bss is opening?! ftw.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:20 PM

Nice! Sounding more like a double bill show than BSS being a traditional opener since I think they certainly could headline their own show...hope so anyway. :)

This will be a Social Hummus Scene

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:29 PM

BSS-50 min set
TVOR-90 min set

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:29 PM

this sounds legit

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:32 PM

would be really weird for bss to "open" after headlining a sold out summerstage benefit show last year. (which was a damn good show, i might add).

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 5:34 PM

yeah, i'm sure their egos are really wounded.

Where are those set lengths coming from?
Given BSS's penchant for breaking the 2- or even 3-hour mark some nights...

BSS should be the headliners

YAWN

"BSS should be the headliners"

Then why don't you book shows at the Waterfront.

Oh, wait, you can't because you're a picky fucking idiot with zero clout anywhere on this stinking earth

PUSA hahahahaha

so dumb. broken social scene should/could be headlining.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 8:05 PM

BSS > TVOTR

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 8:14 PM

BSS didn't put out an album this year, nor is this show in the neighborhood in which they reside.

Get over it.

7:39

obviously a poseur hoping to get autographs from TVOTR

AND LOOK FOR HIM - HE WILL BE FRONT ROW !!!

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 8:25 PM

That will be fantastic.

Posted by Web dizajn Crna Gora | May 17, 2011 8:51 PM

Too bad they are opening the show. I would love to see them again and I do not care for TVOTR. Pass.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 9:44 PM

wow, you guys really hate black people huh?

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 9:49 PM

yea cause black people make terrible music. fuckin dumb ass hipster comment again 949pm.

its more like people might like bss more than tvor. fuckin bafoon and there are people who like tvor more than bss.

fuckin this post is regarding BSS hence why most comments are pro bss.

go back to iowa.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 11:10 PM

Why is it whenever there's a post about a band or artist with black people, there's always nonsense racist comments (latent or not)?

Almost seems like BV-ers are more prejudiced than NY dagos.

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2011 11:46 PM

Wow, this went bad fast. Despite the gospel of 5:29, I'd say its a safe bet that this will be a co-headline kind of show with similar set lengths. BSS "opened" for Pavement last summer on a few dates too, and maybe didn't do marathon record sets — but at this point i think the bands and those who book them have an idea of what people are paying for.

Hope so anyway.
Either way, 2 of the best.
This will be a great night.

Can never have too much BSS !
... oh wait yes you most definitely can..

the problem is not BV. we are the problem, the BV posters. we have nothing better to do with our time but make comments about bands that could care less about us

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 6:29 AM

^ Couldn't agree more.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 10:01 AM

I understand if BSS were opening for a bigger band, say at MSG, but TVOTR are not big, especially outside of NYC.

Might be interested if it were truly a co-headlining show, but I won't pay for anything less than a 90 minute set.

this show is in nyc

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 10:24 AM

Folks, honestly. BV used the word "opening" in the headline because they were added to an already-announced show and TVOTR will go on last. This will almost certainly be co-headline style.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 10:31 AM

so just go and see BSS and leave when TVOTR come on...

Hey, what's Iowa?

Thx in advance.

BSS will play for 34 minutes TOPS.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 11:18 AM

"this show is in nyc"

The word "especially" is especially important.

"Folks, honestly. BV used the word "opening" in the headline because they were added to an already-announced show and TVOTR will go on last. This will almost certainly be co-headline style."

There is no mention of BSS anywhere on the ticketmaster event link. Not headlining.

Hopefully they will do a show without TVOTR, which cannot happen unless that show sells out.

i heard directly from kevin drew that it's really "an evening with tv on the radio" and bss will be doing anthems of seventeen year old girl at some point during the tvotr set as "special guests" and not opening.

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 11:47 AM

when does james murphy come on?

Posted by Anonymous | May 18, 2011 12:04 PM

The show is not in NYC. It is in Williamsburg Brooklyn. No, no - I know you believe it is the same thing, but over the last 10 years it has become clear that the scenesters want a clear demarcation of territory.

The hipsters and fauxhemians look across the East River at the big city, a place where they don't feel comfortable and don't fit in.
