The Rosebuds in Texas
The Rosebuds

Viscous blue light drowned the stage as the highly anticipated headliner, The Rosebuds, captured attention and hearts with "Go Ahead", an indie-rock summer anthem, plagued with melancholy, but overflowing in beauty.

From their 2007 album, Night of the Furies, The Rosebuds performed "Cemetery Lungs" with unwavering energy, beneath bright pink and fuchsia lights. Also from Night of the Furies, one of the crowd favorites was clearly the upbeat and danceable indie-folk track, "Leaves Do Fall".

Promoting their latest album, Loud Planes Fly Low..., The Rosebuds primarily performed tracks featured on that particular album, such as "Limitless Arms", "Come Visit Me", "Cover Ears", and "Second Bird of Paradise". Loud Planes Fly Low, is the first album produced by The Rosebuds since front-musicians Kelly Crisp and Ivan Howard's divorce. Staying together for the sake of music, this particular album exuded more humanity and vulnerability than anything The Rosebuds produced before. -[Red River Noise]

The Rosebuds spent a Friday night (June 25) in Austin at The Parish, where they linked up with Oax and Other Lives for a show as part of their current ongoing Southwest/West Coast headlining tour. Pictures from the Texas show are in this post.

Its in Justin Vernon's home state of Wisconsin that The Rosebuds will link up with Bon Iver for a string of dates on their way back East, eventually landing at the final two sold-out dates of the tour in NYC, 8/9 at United Palace and 8/10 at Prospect Park Bandshell. Rosebuds tour-mate Other Lives will open shows for Bon Over in September. All dates are listed below.

Speaking of Bon Iver, as you may have heard:

Jill Scott earns her very first No. 1 album on The Billboard 200 with "The Light of the Sun," as the new set starts with 135,000 copies sold last week. The R&B singer's previous charting best was 2004's "Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds, Vol. 2," which peaked at No. 3. Her last studio album before a foray into acting was 2007's "The Real Thing: Words and Sounds, Vol. 3" which made it to No. 4.

Meanwhile, Bon Iver has a big week as the self-titled sophomore set enters at No. 2 with 104,000. These numbers easily best his former highs: his 2009 EP "Blood Bank" debuted and peaked at No. 16 with 23,000. Mastermind Justin Vernon's first album under the moniker, "For Emma Forever Ago," never made it higher on the chart than No. 64. [HitFix]

Jill Scott is touring in support of her album this summer too.

Loud Planes Fly Low is The Rosebuds new LP, out now via Merge. Look for it at the merch table of one of their tour dates, which are all listed with more pictures from The Parish, below...

Big tour in the fall that will hit NYC. Just so you know.

I can remember when Justin Vernon was just the back-up touring guitarist for The Rosebuds...

Nice looking lady there.

"Loud Planes..." has a few good tracks, but as a complete album, I prefer the band's prior album "Life Like."

It's crazy that they wrote this album while they were divorcing one another. How do you work with someone you're divorcing?

"Nice looking lady there."

...who happens to be married to the singer/guitar player dude and who has friends who would delight in knocking the taste out of your mouth

You sound rather touchy there 12:31 AM. The person was just giving a compliment. Then again they are a Wisconsin normal band looking for stardom so they will do the predictable and sell CD's at Starbucks or do a song for an ad.

They are from NC and have been around for about 9 years and have put out 5+ records..

"5+" *teehee*

Do you like my 5+ inches?

LOL! Someone's got cramps!

Calm the hell down. I just said she was nice looking. Nothing more, nothing less. But then, this is BV where you can get away with unnecessary hostility at whatever whim!

Accept no substitutes!

Tremendously professional kick ass show in Bellingham last night.
They could have easily mailed it in with a lame summer Sunday collagetown turnout but delivered big time like only true artists can, by creating a celebration of place in the here & now. Thanks guys
See you in Vancouver
