Bardo Pond at Music Hall of Williamsburg 2009 (more by Lori Baily)
Bardo Pond

Bardo Pond will play Death By Audio TONIGHT (11/19), as part of a Northern Spy event with Eleven Twenty Nine and Steve Gunn. Doors open at 8PM for the $10 show, and more info is here. Though Northern Spy is hosting the DBA show, Northern Spy artist Hubble will be just down the street tonight at 285 Kent, celebrating a record release and supporting Psychic Ills.

Bardo Pond recently played the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham. Clash wrote...

One of the more frustrating things about Supersonic is just how much great music you end up missing. Pioneers like Silver Apples and Tony Conrad are both sacrificed throughout the weekend, the disappointingly washed out Wolves In The Throne Room and the inconceivably overrated Skull Defekts somehow flickering onto my radar in their place. Yet a band doesn't necessarily need to be innovative or even particularly refreshing to steal the show. Bardo Pond, performing early in the evening in space number 2 and having to negotiate theirs and everyone elses hangovers delight, a gorgeously crushing celebration of wistful acid tracer trails and shoegaze psyche. That these old hands stole the show is perhaps indicative of inconsistent yet strangely satisfying blend that comprised this years festival as a whole.
Listen to Thurston Moore talk about Bardo Pond HERE. See Thurston Moore on tour in early 2012.

Goddamn this for being on the same night as Mastodon.

Wasn't Bardo Pond at the No Noise Fest a couple years ago, at MHOW?

They were horrible.

Love them. Can't wait. Their No Fun set was nothing compared to their real sets they play. That set was for No Fun only, kind of like the Sonic Youth set after it that night.

But the SY set was cool, unlike BP

I had a mixed vegetable medley located near my hummus platter for the enjoyment of my guests at my most recent dinner party.
