Iceage
Iceage

Prurient and Iceage headlined the Sacred Bones/Stereogum showcase at Public Assembly on June 17th, with help from Cult of Youth (who have a new album and tour with Cold Cave in August), The Men (who played Death By Audio earlier that week), Yellow Tears, Lost Tribe, Pop1280, and Anasazi. The show, part of the Northside Festival, marked the US debut of Iceage and is one of a few shows planned for the band in the coming weeks.

By the time I arrived at the Sacred Bones/Stereogum show after catching Deafheaven, Iceage had already taken the stage and were into their first song. The crowd was dancing like maniacs and had started a pit in front of the stage. The band's reverb and noise-heavy post-punk was as snotty and disaffected on stage as it is on New Brigade, and the audience ate it up.

I ducked out of Iceage a touch early though to get into the smaller room to catch Prurient which, as expected, filled quickly to capacity following the close of Iceage. Standing up front, I caught all of Dominick Fernow's violent and fantastic 15 minute set that included his Cold-Cave bandmate Wes Eisold addding another layer of electronic noise. Dominick screamed and thrashed violently (ultimately knocking over his rig) into two microphones while an icy mix of darkwave synths, black metal, and noise blasted through the PA. Incredible set.

If you missed out on the show on Friday (6/17) you can still catch quite a few of the bands in the coming weeks. Cult of Youth play Knitting Factory with Cold Cave on 7/12. Iceage are back in NYC for a few more dates including a FREE in-store Wednesday at Other Music and a show at 285 Kent on Saturday with JEFF The Brotherhood and a suprise guest (Fucked Up).

Yellow Tears have a few dates in their future as well, playing the Ende Tymes Festival of Noise and Experimental Liberation at Silent Barn on June 24th-26th, the Burning Fleshtival III at The Red Light District on 7/29 and 7/30, and The Stone on August 2nd.

We already posted the Men pics from the show HERE. More pictures from the rest of the show and some video of Yellow Tears (most of their set), Iceage, and Prurient, below...

A couple rules of thumb:

1) Cheek piercings never a good idea.

2) Too much hairspray: Bad for the environment & your image.

3) Your stretchy ear hoops or pegs should never be large enough to stick your dick through.


That is all. Thank you.

Iceage -

tell your lead singer to stop trying to look like Ian Curtis. Ian Curtis sang for Joy Division, in case you did not know. And they also have a song entitled Ice Age

And wearing Fred Perry shirts is not really a rocking statement. It looks like you would rather be at a tennis match.

When I was a kid, I told my dad that one day that one day I would play a "bowl of water" in front of a sold out crowd of adoring fans. I'll never forgive him for holding me back. Now the moment is gone. They would've cheered for me.

Excuse me waiter, did someone order a stupid cunt?

Possibly the lamest thing I've ever read on BV and most likely written by someone in their 20s who just discovered Joy Division.

As for the Fred Perry shirts perhaps you've never heard of The Who or The Specials.

Already pushing it with the Ian Curtis comparison but I'm sure someone with knowledge as vast as yours knows that Fred Perrys are pretty common for bands to wear.

Haha you guys know that Prurient is a joke, right?

"And wearing Fred Perry shirts is not really a rocking statement. It looks like you would rather be at a tennis match."

They're very popular among soccer hooligans in the UK and across Europe.

All of that looks/sounds like it was the stupidest shit in the world.

So we have a girl who thinks shes Rose McDowall and the Cult of Copying Death in June\ Current 93 in a cliche fashion scene almost regurgitating the pathetic crap image from the early 90's Chicago "industrial scene" with a tinge of world serpent.

Looks like the singer from Liturgy was right about a few things regarding self indulgent incestuous scenes.

were there any actual people at this show or just bloggers

The only reason S t e r e o g u m sponsors these shows is so they have original content to post about for once. The site hasn't been what it used to be since Scott sold its soul out for a respectable 2 milli. Overall, the tone of it is a bunch of half-assed posting by decent writers who have bigger and better things to do with their time than maintain the 'Gum's cool.

Between the American Nightmare bro, Prurient and the dbag Fred Perry vibes, its like the shitty cocaine-fueled days of Boston 2002 never ended!

The Fred Perry hate in this thread is weird.

Speaking of cocaine, did anyone else see that the guy from SALEM is dating Courtney Love?

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2011 10:50 AM

No, the hipsters justifying this bad band by saying Fred Perry is cool and punk - that is weird

I like how 12.45 suggests bloggers aren't people. Made my day.

"were there any actual people at this show or just bloggers"
