"@ Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg. I like funky spots. I will become a regular. Live bands playing tonight. The opener is pretty good, UME" - Ariana Simmons

Ume played Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday (8/13) as part of their tour which also hit Pianos two days earlier (8/11). They opened for Stockholm Syndrome at B Bowl, though we didn't stick around. Pictures and some videos from their set only are in this post.

Ume's upcoming LP Phantoms comes out August 30 via Modern Outsider. Grab the album track "Captive" above. More pics & videos below...

I get on hitting page down and it felt like the photos were repeating. Do we really need like 20 pages of photos for new one band?

I love this band. I went to the Pianos show. Lauren is very photogenic, so I can understand all the pictures.

What the hell - why complain? It will soon be swept away by the next thing (and on and on after that).

Wow! I want to have her babies.

great photos, moto.

it's not that. i totally agree she's photogenic. however, i feel like over half those shots are of her rockin' out in the same style with hair flying everywhere. it looks awesome the first time. even the second and third. but after the fifteenth shot of her doing kinda the same thing ... um, ok, we get it. she rocks. and she plays fender tele/jag/jazz guitars. great.

i changed my mind. fuck it. she rawks! love seeing her wail away and scream and really play the fucking guitar. you hear that vivian girls and all the other pussy lo-fi brooklyn bands? listen ... it's the sound of that instrument you carry around really making a sound.

pay. the. fuck. attention.

Tied with Berry Park for least funky spot in Williamsburg. Ridiculo.

ok how many photos do we need to see that she likes to flick and wave her hair around. Someone should shave that head!

She could eat hummus off my naked body anyway.

Looks more like an engagement ring than a wedding ring...This band is a poor man's Joy Formidable.

Posted by Anon | August 17, 2011 5:53 PM

Wedding band & engagement ring. Poor man's Joy Formidable? What? Ume, harder hitting music, visual appealing, and a return to the music of the early '90s with a little '60s & 70's thrown in. And, unpredictable.

Apparently all you need for success is A)being a hot chick, or B)associating with a hot chick.

Who knew?
