Speaking of Kurt Vile, he played Bowery Ballroom earlier this month with Purling Hiss and Meg Baird. Pics from the show are in this post.

Kurt heads out on tour with Thurston Moore soon. That tour doesn't hit NYC but Kurt opens for Sonic Youth at Williamsburg Front, and opens for M Ward at Wellmont Theater in NJ one day earlier.

Updated tour dates and more pictures from the Bowery show, including one of Kurt's setlist, below...

This was an INCREDIBLE show. The openers were both great and I have never heard Kurt play so well. Awesome to see such a good dude doing so well finally. He's paid his dues and then some.

Kurt was great. Really looking forward to the Sonic Youth show in August with him and Wild Flag opening.

Smoke Ring For My Halo is best album of this year so far hands down. Got shut out of this show and was bummed about it. Good to see you finally reviewing a show thats good. Actually you reviewed GBV yesterday, so I take that back. Keep up the good work

Kurt was great. Also though Purling Hiss really killed it.

That "setlist" isn't really even close to what he actually played. He jumped around on that list and didn't play about 5 or 6 songs listed. It was more of a set "guide".
