Friends @ BV-CMJ @ Public Aseembly
Friends

Much like Dive (who they have played with), Brooklyn band Friends, who recently hit Mercury Lounge with Ganglians, aren't ones to make themselves rare around here and that will be proven four times in the next week. Catch them at Glasslands tonight (12/8) with Zambri, Royal Baths, Doldrums, Xray Eyeballs (that's some lineup), and then opening for Oh Land at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday (12/11), at 285 Kent with !!! that same night, and then again with Oh Land at Bowery Ballroom on Monday. And then that's it for them (for now) until they tour Europe in February.

Friends were one of the many bands who played a BrooklynVegan CMJ day party at Public Assembly in October. Here are some pictures from that show. More of them below...

I can't think of anything that sounds less appealing than having to see/listen to these morons. Everything wrong with the current NY music scene.

This is one of the worst joke bands around now. Sort of like Total Slacker for 2011.

Yeah that is some lineup you clown. Which publicist sucked your dick to get you to make that pronouncement

Friends = Everything wrong with the current NY music scene not giving a crap about my band but instead loving compelling and sexy bands.

Going places? Yea this week. We'll see if they exist come June.

First band meeting....So like ok, we've kinda nailed the whole image thing. Now, can anyone here actually play the instrument they brought with them?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 3:26 PM

I hope they get big. I need to get rid of that 7" my girlfriend bought & played once.

Can't stand most of the songs, but the bass player (the girl) is actually pretty talented. (no, I'm not commenting on her looks.)

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 3:39 PM

Always hated that fucking show.

This band may have no talent, shitty songs, and terrible fashion sense, but they have a killer publicist.

My post @ 3:13 was a quote from someone else on the last BV Friends post.

proof that two "hot" girls and name dropping gets you places, not talent.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 5:25 PM

I think I would like this band better if they drove around in a van and solved crimes.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 5:41 PM

Yeah this band certainly is terrible, which means they will inevitably become the "most buzzed about band in Brooklyn"

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 6:05 PM

crime stoppers. haha

Haven't seen such questionable fashion choices by a band since this:

I walked out of this pretty fast. Second song I think.

Posted by Valensi | December 8, 2011 10:49 PM

I want to walk out on this band so bad but don't want to pay for a ticket. If they're still around this summer and do any free shows I'll be there.

Front row...stare down...WALK THE FUCK OUT.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 11:50 PM

they are good musicians, and engaging enough performers... but they don't got the songs. that's it. maybe that'll come?

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2011 9:14 AM

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2011 9:20 AM

So a band made up of members of other bands no one cares about! Great job vegan...
