Brooklyn bar and music venue Union Pool will host another Jonathan Toubin benefit show TONIGHT (1/18). The show will feature "a three ring circuit of cross-fading solos, duos, trios & big bands" with The Notekillers, Kyp Malone, Kid Millions, Greg Fox, and Bernard Gann. That big band they speak of? New Party Systems:

New Party Systems came together when four musician friends - Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio), David First (Notekillers), Greg Fox (X-Liturgy, Guardian Alien) and Bernard Gann (Liturgy) all ran into each other the same day at Zuccotti Park, early on during the Occupy Wall Street occupation. Out of that fateful meeting came the decision to form a music collective inspired by and supporting the movement. The video by director Toni Comas and producer Anna Franquesa feature people from all over the world, including musicians Martin Bisi, Kid Millions, Bob Ostertag and the students who were involved in the UC Davis pepper spray incident."
Purchase the song at Bandcamp. View the video and stream the songbelow.

Speaking of Jonathan Toubin benefits, there's also one going down in Chicago on Friday.

Speaking of TV on the Radio, they've been added to the Rolling Stones tribute show going down at Carnegie Hall. The lineup is now MARIANNE FAITHFULL, RICKIE LEE JONES, RONNIE SPECTOR, ROSANNE CASH, STEVE EARLE, TAJ MAHAL, MARC COHN, THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, PEACHES, JOVANOTTI & TV ON THE RADIO, GLEN HANSARD (OF THE SWELL SEASON), RICH ROBINSON (OF THE BLACK CROWES), CAROLINA CHOCOLATE DROPS, and JACKIE GREENE (with more TBA).

Oof. Didn't think something could be worse than one of those drum circles.

I dig The Who vibe on this track. But overall I'm not a big fan of pseudo-political mumbo jumbo.

To clear up a little something, NY was NEVER onsale at arcadefire.com today. I was refreshing all morning and it wasn't there. Whether it was ever supposed to be or not is the confusion. Merge said it would and neither they nor Arcade Fire has said anything to clear that up.
