UMO @ Glasslands
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra headlined Glasslands on 6/4. Headless Horseman, Balkans, and Fort Lean rounded out the rest of the bill. Despite some gear issues, UMO played an hour long set that concluded with "How Can U Luv Me" to a relatively full crowd. UMO is currrently prepping to release their self-titled debut on Fat Possum on 6/21. Stream three songs at the label site and download one above along with a remix the band did for Little Dragon.

The Glasslands show was one of two NYC dates for UMO, who played Webster Hall with their tour-mates Portugal The Man the night before. They'll return both venues in September while on tour with Toro Y Moi who headlines Webster Hall on 9/14. Ava Luna is also on the bill and tickets are still available. One day later, 9/15, UMO return to Glasslands for another headlining show. Tickets are on sale for that too.

UMO also has a bunch of dates scheduled with Yuck.. All dates and more pictures from Glasslands below...

Sounds like the Park Slope brunchcore audience had a great time at this show, throwing their $70k money around on drinks then going home to find a pile of past due bills

Worst. Name. Ever. Saw these guys open up for Smith Westerns a while back and thought it was going to be a crappy metal band, so we arrived late and we're pleasantly surprised by their psych pop sound.

That backdrop has been at Glasslands for what, 2 years now? You people must be some serious noobs.

Posted by Anonymous | June 14, 2011 1:09 PM

Noobs of what? A venue we haven't been to yet? LOL!

Yes, please don't ever purport to try anything new or admit that anything is a recent discovery. You fucking troglodyte.

Posted by Jason Gravy Train Matuskiewicz | June 14, 2011 3:49 PM

So what, someone hasn't been to a venue yet. You take this shit way too seriously, boy.

Posted by Anonymous | June 14, 2011 4:04 PM

I would say that if you've lived in or very near Brooklyn, read this site and HAVEN'T been to Glasslands for that long, that you're approaching troglodyte material, yes

Posted by Anonymous | June 14, 2011 4:13 PM

Have never lived in Brooklyn, but have been to various venues around the city. There just hasn't happened to be a show at that venue which I was aware of that made me want to go there.

And also, leave the big words to Elliot Offen there, bigshot.
