I have one free extra ticket to see the S*PIN D*OCTORS perform their classic 90s record “Pocket Full of Kryptonite” tonight at Bowery Ballroom. Rumor is that they are going to play Two Princes to open AND close the show! Come get your 90s rock nostalgia on

wow. free walkmen show. can't wait to roll up to this thing at 8:30, what a bunch of jokes playing before them.

The Walkmen sounded great when they opened for the Fleet Foxes at the Williamsburg Waterfront a few weeks ago. How about a Bowery show?

Fuck these guys. Pretentious rich kid rock.

Posted by Valentine | October 13, 2011 5:40 PM

The earlier bands play rock for poor kids.

People will stay for 20 minutes, then head to Maxwells for something warm or cold to drink

>Fuck these guys. Pretentious rich kid rock.

really? hmm. i know a bit of history about these guys so i'm curious to hear your explanation on that. please, you've got the mic. well ... we're waiting.

Pass the mic, yo!

I'm not 5:40 but he/she is probably referencing the fact that these dudes are from the very elite suburbs of DC. And also they all went to the St. Albans School. It costs $38,000 a year to attend 6th grade there. So there's that.

So? Turns out that "rich kid rock" is not a thing.

^ fair enough. but if that was the basis for their remark, which something tells me they weren't as educated as you on the topic, i call bullshit on it. do we discount david byrne's accomplishments both solo and in talking heads because he was at risd? me thinks not. the walkmen bust their asses off and they have for years. they don't bother with being a part of any "scene" and all the bullshit associated with that. if someone wants to pull the rich kids card, keep it with the strokes. perfect example of a bunch of no-talent wanks who would be nowhere without the connections of their well-to-do families.

The Walkman are really big with investment bankers. Just sayin.

I think I might die laughing from the notion that indie rock is in any way a working class phenomenon.

if they remixed surfer blood, you know they must be good.

Wormburner is pretty damn good. Seen them several times now, and they kick ass live. Their last Mercury show was awesome!

Posted by Anonymous | October 14, 2011 12:23 AM

I will be there but think the show will be desolate being poorly advertized, in october, outdoors and sunday evening in Hoboken...better for me though!

The Walkmen are a great band. Period.

Posted by Anonymous | October 14, 2011 10:26 AM

Someone is complaining that the middle school they went to was too expensive? Therefore these guys have "have to much money" to be good? Do you really think these guys had choice as to what family they were born into, thus where they went to school and how affluent their parents are?

Posted by Anonymous | October 14, 2011 11:13 AM

yea this shows gonna be crickets. better 4 walkmen fans tho

Posted by Anonymous | October 14, 2011 5:50 PM

And to continue 11:13's point, if given the choice you should want to be raised poor? Go see the walkmen before dude's voice is shot from singing like that, and for gods sake, educate your children to the best of your ability so we don't have to listen to their stupidity on here.
