Japanther

Ten years of screaming into telephone receivers, bouncing crowds, recordings, livid circus officials and more were celebrated at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (6/14). Japanther celebrated their tenth anniversary at the Brooklyn venue with some help from Shellshag and Heavy Cream. The Brooklyn two-piece play to MHOW for about an hour, with Shellshag and Heavy Cream logging 45 and 20 minute sets respectively.

Heavy Cream are now on their way to NXNE, but will return to play Death By Audio on June 22nd with Teen Witch, Elks & Hunters. All dates below.

Shellshag have a pair of NYC dates as well, on July 1st at Knitting Factory with Nobunny and TV Ghost (tickets) and July 2nd at Silent Barn with Unstoppable Death Machines.

All tour dates, more pictures from MHOW and a video, below...

Seems like an odd venue choice for their 10th anniversary show. I would think they would have chosen a diy venue.

This band has been around for ten years? WTF?

I gotta say. I'm not a fan of these drummers who play their drumsets standing up.

"I gotta say. I'm not a fan of these drummers who play their drumsets standing up."

Those people aren't drummers. They are people dicking around with percussion.

Posted by Nick | June 16, 2011 1:19 AM

poseurs are STILL into this noise?

and why do you post 100 photos of absolutely nothing interesting?

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 7:02 AM

Check it out, 7:02 wants us to know s/he's not a poseur.

"Japanther, Lightning Bolt's retarded younger brother."

Only not nearly as fun or crazy. And about to be disowned.

Also, that first pic is so douchey it scares me.

seriously BV, could you please have someone curate and edit the photo selections and then link to a full gallery?

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 10:17 AM

Please tell me when music stopped being good and started being "fun?"

Posted by Thomas Edison | June 16, 2011 10:18 AM

wow, jumping off a stool is the craziest thing that band could think to do?

Posted by Anonymous | June 16, 2011 11:53 AM

Seems like the audience should get "crazy" and throw stools at the band, if you know what I mean.

Gotta love how some clowns think they're being clever and creative by putting in famous people in the name part.

Gotta love how some cunts aren't clever or creative enough to put famous people in the name part.

Gotta love how some trendy losers are so sensitive that they can't handle that they're eternal losers at life and will always be unclever dipshits.
