Chelsea Wolfe

Though Chelsea Wolfe had to cancel her Tuesday night show at Glasslands last minute, she played what ended up being her first CMJ appearance at Europa on Wednesday night (10/19), teaming with Religious To Damn, Hunters, and The Love Butchers, with DJ sets from Pendu and Electric Lady. Unlike her first NYC appearance at St Vitus in August, Chelsea is here this time with her full band. I saw her 2nd CMJ show last night (10/20) at Cake Shop (the show Trash Talk went on to play after 2am today) (GZA didn't play), and it was seriously great. Here are some pictures from the Europa show.

Chelsea plays again today (10/21) at the FREE BV Day Party with J.Mascis, A Place To Bury Strangers, Gauntlet Hair, Hospitality, Xeno & Oaklander, and many others. Here's a reminder on set times:

STAGE 1 (front room)
12:00 Races (new Frenchkiss signing)
12:45 Bleached (ex Mika Miko)
01:30 Widowspeak
02:15 Young Magic
03:15 A Place To Bury Strangers
04:15 Chelsea Wolfe
05:00 J Mascis (solo)

STAGE 2 (back room)
12:30 Cold Specks (1st-ever US show)
01:15 Lord Huron
02:00 Emmy the Great

Love Butchers was the best band there, why didn't they get any pics?

Hell yeah, why no love for Love Butchers? Those guys killed it, they're the best band in NYC. Looks like your photographer got there late.

I thought Chelsea Wolfe was rad, her band was super tight.

She looks stupid in a hijab

Religious to Damn is absolutely one of the worst bands playing in BK these days. Please end the suffering and stop booking them!

Religious to Damn was amazing. You're an idiot.

Todd Pendu is a thief.

You are an idiot for thinking everyone needs to share your opinion

Todd Pendu steals.

Todd P. Fitz doesn't like 2:20

^ya i hope chelsea wolfe doesnt get sucked into his bullshit

Chelsea Wolfe is the real thing. If you saw her play the other night you wouldn't be able to deny it. All the hype is true and well deserved.

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 2:31 PM

Chelsea can do MUCH better than Todd; needs to dump his ass soon. Such scum doesn't deserve her.

On a separate note, I hear he's hiring interns. And looking for investors. Peeps, get in on it.

feel this comments section is lacking something...maybe more hummus?

i always love when people post vague accusations online. i'm afraid it lacks any credibility, my friend. todd is an incredibly sweet guy who has done a lot for the music scene in nyc. if you have gripes, why not direct them to him, in private?

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 2:42 PM

This was a really good show except for Religious to Damn

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 2:43 PM

fuck i gots proof of todd stealing; lots of money. remain in denial, my friend, but the truth is out there - and it's spreading fortunately

being "sweet" and doing a lot for the music scene doesn't mean he isn't capable of stealing and seriously fucking over people - GOOD, HONEST people who were actually tricked into this persona you'e so convinced of

if todd is reading this, he knows the truth. and i say to you, the culling time has come

he will most certainly hear this in private, but the public needs to know

Whoever this anonymous poster is, you should talk to me directly.... I have been around for a long time and worked with lots of people throughout the years, and I am known for my honesty. This is outright scandal you are trying to create, but there are more than enough people to stand with me who know who I am.... This blog is known for the kind of stuff you are writing, so no surprise to see it here. I stand open and willing to answer any charges you have against me. I have nothing to hide.

The only good band that played this gig was the love butchers.
Too bad no one caught them.

Chelsea wolf was fantastic!

seems like a bunch of anonymous feel the same way? you have buried your secrets from honest people. you are not honest, im sorry.

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 4:14 PM

Anyone throwing around anonymous accusations on the internet has zero credibility at best.

Love Chelsea Wolfe.
Do not love Europa.

The sound guy needs to get his ass fired and then set himself on fire.

Ya! the show was awesome! thats some crazy shit todd. you should probally get that figured out...

GAUNTLET HAIR!!!! yes!

1.Todd Pendu is honest.
2.Love Butcher were indeed good.
3. 12:49, 2:00, and 2:43 are the same guy. Has a fixation on one of the members of RTD. Posts the same shit everywhere. Hides when confronted.
4.BV's comment policy remains totally fucking depressing.

Posted by Zachary | October 21, 2011 5:26 PM

Chelsea and Religious to Damn did their best World Serpent imitations. Rose would be proud.

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 5:45 PM

The poster that keeps saying that The Love Butchers were the best band of the night is a member of The Love Butchers.

Who does Todd Pendu steal from? Did he use some door money to buy himself a Pepsi?

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2011 4:15 AM

I like Chelsea Wolfe, but she does sound like PJ Harvey and Karin Dreijer (The Knife/Fever Ray) at times.

burned in turning picture.

Posted by Peter | October 22, 2011 1:22 PM

5:26, I'm 12:49. I'm not anyone else. It might be hard for you as a member of the band to understand but multiple people are pretty sure your band blows and u r a nerf herder.
