Jherek Bischoff

As mentioned, the Ecstatic Music Festival kicks off on February 4 at Merkin Concert Hall with Jherek Bischoff, who plays with Parenthetical Girls and The Dead Science. He's teaming up with Wordless Music Orchestra and an incredible list of guest vocalists from his upcoming album, which comes out this February, including David Byrne, Craig Wedren (Shudder To Think), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Mirah, and Zac Pennington (Parenthetical Girls. Tickets are still on sale now.

Speaking of Parenthetical Girls, their tour began last night (12/1) at Glasslands with Gauntlet Hair, Dinowalrus, and Eraas. If you missed it, they'll also be in NYC this Friday (12/3) at Santos Party House with YACHT and Midnight Magic (tickets).

As previously mentioned, Brassland Records is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a label and debuted a new/old track every day of November via various methods including Soundcloud. None of those tracks can be heard in the player that's embedded below. Those include "Spinney" by This is the Kit (who are opening for the National at Beacon Theater on 12/17) and "Secret of the Machines (instrumental)" by Jherek Bischoff. The latter also features drums by Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), and will have vocals by Caetano Veloso in its album version.

Words could not possibly accurately represent the depth of laughter I experience when I look at that picture.

It reminds me more than a little of that other famous hipster picture ...

I wish Tiny Tim was still alive. He was the real deal.

Can you imagine this guy sorting through the photos taken at the shoot, and finding this shot and saying "Yes! That's the one!"

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 10:43 AM

Wha, no neck tat?

This HAS to be a ridiculous pose/look done on purpose, right? I mean, it MUST be a joke photo. It HAS to be!!

he's missing his suspenders

For once, all of the above comments have made me laugh. For crying out loud, this guy deserves everything thrown at him if he wants to pose for a photo shoot looking like a withered, anemic sissypants geek.

top button buttoned...check

cuffs unbuttoned...check

inability to grow facial hair...check

half-assed attempt at duck pursed lips...check

TOTAL INDIETARD!!!!!!!

Ok, I just listened to some of his music...and I really like it! No joke! Go to the bandcamp page and see for yourselves. While his appearance is disturbingly contrived, the music speaks for itself. Wow, very surprised. I would definitely see him live...and probably throw a mocking comment or two. Why not?

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 11:15 AM

I want to kick him where his balls should be.

Smash his ukelele over his flaccid wrist

Amazing how prejudiced so many BV posters are.

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 12:44 PM

Hey 12:44, yeah it IS amazing isn't it! I can only assume you look/ act similar to the enormous d-bag pictured above. Sissy much?

"Wow, very surprised. I would definitely see him live...and probably throw a mocking comment or two. Why not?"

While you're at it please consider throwing some rotting produce...and a billiard ball!

a billiard ball ... to the FACE

I think we can all unanimously agree that when it comes to this photo, bullying is perfectly acceptable.

Wait, change that. Not bullying. It would be SELF DEFENSE.

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 2:37 PM

To 12:48: I don't look or act anything like this guy, but I am also not prejudiced against people for the way they look, nor am I homophobic. I don't know him, haven't heard the music, make no judgments. It seems he is ok with David Byrne though, but I suppose you also consider David Byrne a bit of a sissy/faggot too right? When did people who listen to independent music become so judgmental, prejudiced, and homophobic?
Yours truly, 12:44

p.s. I do understand that being so hateful is easier done behind a keyboard and realize in real life you are just some pathetic skinny kid with acne (not that I am judging you based on how you look, rather I do so on how you act).

Oh WTF..."sissy" is not a slur!! Get over your PC nonsense and stop acting so frail....wimp!

U mad bro?

Hey 2:38, Cool story bro!

Posted by David Byrne | December 2, 2011 3:16 PM

I think even the most PC among us would agree that it's perfectly acceptable to make judgments about people regarding things they CAN change. I mean that guy wasn't BORN with that stupid haircut.

3:55:

Fighting for a haircut, well then grow your hair . . . .

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 3:56 PM

Yeah, 4:16, not to mention David Bowie. These guys would have had a field day making fun of Bowie.

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 6:19 PM

dear 4:16pm,

if you're going to bring in brilliant minds like brian eno and david lynch in comparison to the tool photographed above ... then you sir/madam deserve yourself a nice well done billyburger to chow down on with fork & knife while contemplating what a complete fucking idiot you are.

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 9:04 PM

Wrong!!! Eno, Lynch and Bowie are/ were creative masterminds...pure genius! This fucktard is a borderline talented asshole who is trying too hard while coming off like a total hipster dickhead. Nice analogy you know-nothing prick!

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 10:45 PM

This is quite possibly one of the worst press photos ever.

Posted by Anonymous | December 2, 2011 11:55 PM

his music is good who cares about his image. go to f.i.t. if you care about looks.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2011 5:34 PM

Gave it a listen. Sucks. David Bowie? Brian Eno? C'mon now losers.

Billiard ball to the face.
