Chairlift @ Mercury Lounge
Chairlift

Chairlift played a sold-out Mercury Lounge last night (10/24) with Beach Fossils, just a couple of weeks after Chairlift played the Creators Project in DUMBO (picture sets one, two, and three), and not long after they opened some shows for James Blake (including Webster Hall). Chairlift have a few UK dates coming up soon. They're listed with more pictures from the Merc show below.

Beach Fossils also recently played 285 Kent with Beach Fossil sideproject (that is quickly becoming bigger than Beach Fossils?) Dive, Minks, and Heavenly Beat, and are also preparing to head out of the country for a stint of dates in Mexico. Dive meanwhile plays 285 Kent again on November 10th with North America and Hunter. BF dates are listed below.

Chaiflift recently posted new "videos" (streaming songs in video form) for the songs "Sidewalk Safari" and "Peculiar Paradise" from their forthcoming LP SOMETHING due on 1/24/12. Check that those out alongside all tour dates and more pictures from Mercury Lounge, below...

Jesus. If you geeks get excited over this chick, I don't even want to imagine how you react to a girl who's actually hot.

She's "hipster hot". You need to leave Williamsburg and go to the Meatpacking Dist if you want better looking.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 2:56 PM

she definitely appears to be pretty in those pictures? i think the fact that she gets on stage and performs in front of an audience makes her hot, but i've never heard her music or seen her performance...

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 2:56 PM

They don't play 'Bruises' anymore?

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 2:58 PM

She is 'female singer hot.' She is not 'you see her at a club and wanna bang her' hot. She is 'you're really drunk at 4am and you can tell her outfit is begging for dick so you make a one-second attempt to get her in the sack' hot. She is 'i'd bang you only so i could tell my friends that i banged the singer from chairlift, not because i necessarily want to' hot.

She is Carrie Brownstein/Mary Timoney hot. She is Anna Calvi hot. She is 'only insofar as she is on stage playing music and making blowjob shapes with her mouth' hot.

"She's a very pretty girl. When will BV posters grow up?"

I'm more judicious about this stuff in real life for the simple reason that it's necessary to be a little empathetic toward friends who maybe can't have the same standards. But really, the chick is one in 25 girls attractive, at best. And the lack of maturity is in fawning over her, not in pouring cold water on the over-excited virgins.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 3:21 PM

2:27: Exactly. That also explains all those douchey "closet case" or any other homosexual innuendo comments directed towards any metal shows or anything else that isn't in sync with BV indie credentials.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 3:23 PM

I think she's pretty, but I work with a lot of girls who are pretty, and I see a lot of pretty girls on the train on the way to work. But being in a band and performing and whatnot makes her a lot hotter. That puts it on another level. Or as 3:01 said, she's 'female singer' hot.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 3:30 PM

Been waiting all day for this! Can't wait till I get out of work so I can hurry home and...ya know...take care of business.

We demanded ass shots, and the photographer failed to deliver our request. Such is a failure to provide for your audience.

and the singer is incredibly average.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 4:01 PM

I would guess the majority of posters here who claim they would "hit it" or more perversely that they have seen or "hit" better, wouldn't even have the balls to talk to a girl like her, let alone, "hit it." By the way, since when is "hitting it" an acceptable euphemism for sex? I guess for these types of people, i.e. the misogynists posting here, hitting a girl and having sex are basically the same thing -- violent and all about themselves.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 4:04 PM

3:30 doesn't like her because she doesn't have fake boobs, too much makeup, and actually has a brain and talent. In other words, she is superior to him in all respects and therefore scares him to death. So, all he can really do is suggest she isn't attractive. Am I right?

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 4:07 PM

"hit it" is probably a term popularized by sexist, violent hip hop culture that has been unthoughtfully appropriated by white hipsters. In other words, a disgusting term on all levels and one that should be cleansed from every day English vernacular.

The 3:30 I'm looking at says she's attractive. I don't know what comment you're looking at.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 4:13 PM

Going to the University of Colorado doesn't exactly scream "has a brain," 4:07. Not in this town. And who the fuck holds out fake tits as a standard of beauty in NYC? You have a rather dim and cliched imagination.

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2011 4:16 PM

Clearly we're all the type to fawn over a sorta-cute musician artsy chick rather than some talentless fake-tit bleach-blonde airhead. And she's using it as a selling point for their band. Both of these things are acceptable. And the world turns. Its all good.

3:47, we also demanded some coverage of The Spin Docs show, but we got squat. Shows that BV doesn't give a damn about what the readership wants.

I'd give that shit a good stabbing. I know 2 gentleman who have had the pleasure of giving it to her already. One still cries about it.

Meh. I suppose that being subjected to pics of Amy Klein and Merrill Garbus make Caroline Polackchick shine by comparison.

3:23 - people deride metal music because that's the very CORE of the closet-case homophobic emotionally stunted Neanderthal virgin types, not indie music. The ratio of guys to girls is about 50 to 1 too. And who gonna call you a fag at a chairlift show? We're all fags.

If Charilift ever opens for Radiohead this place is going down in flames.

If Chairlift ever opened for Radiohead it would be the worst night of pretentious shitty music for lemmings since Lennon/Wainwright in Zuccotti Park back in 2011.

Despite what ever laws of nature that might be in play; Caroline Polachek needs to procreate w/ Frohawk. They're the two most perfect human beings on the planet. Can you imagine the offspring? It would be the messiah....

She could def sing and the quality of their music has improved but there's something cheesy about this band that just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Guess you could say that about a lot of junk coming out of Williamsburg though. As for looks, to each their own.
