Mates of State (who head out on a big tour in September), Cymbals Eat Guitars (ditto), and Yellow Ostrich (October & November) played a private Barsuk Records showcase at Mercury Lounge in NYC last night (8/24). Here are some pictures from the show. They continue below...

Yellow Ostrich and Mates of State were both excellent. Can't say the same for Cymbals Eat Guitars. Half of the room had cleared out for the bar by the time they'd finished their third song. They sounded out of place and dated. It's 2k11: no one listens to yelpy emo anymore.

cymbals eat guitars have always sounded out of place and dated. they're the worst band to have gotten "best new music" in the last decade, no doubt about it.

CEG is the best band ever and Joseph Ferocious is sooooo hot

11:10: Are you the girlfriend of the sweaty CEG-dude? I think I might have seen you at the show last night. You must be like 5'1", 90 lbs and they were making you carry their equipment. Yeah he seems like a real catch.

Does he really go by the name Joseph Ferocious? LOL! I'd bet even that Yellow Ostrich dude could beat him up.

Cymbals Eat Guitars didn't even play to a full Mercury? Or even half-full Mercury? Wow, if that doesn't prove the worthlessness of the indie/Pitchfork scene hype, I dunno what does.

@ 3:43 PM . It was a private show put on by the label, no tickets were sold.

^ Gotcha. Well, then I guess I should make fun of the label for not having more friends/industry people interested in their shit.
