Tim Harrington @ Death by Audio 3/31/2012
Tim Harrington

All ages Williamsburg venue Death by Audio celebrated its fifth anniversary last month with sets by Tim Harrington (of Les Savy Fav, playing solo), Free Paint (Deerhoof's Greg Saunier and Flying's Sara Magenheimer), Grooms, and Neckbeard Telecaster. Check out more pictures from the anniversary party below. Meanwhile, they have a number of solid upcoming shows this month and next, which are highlighted in this post.

This Wedneday (4/18), Brooklyn's Hunters will play the venue. We profiled them when they toured with The Kills and Jeff the Brotherhood, after releasing a James Iha-produced, Nick Zinner-mixed EP, which you can stream/purchase at bandcamp. The bill also includes Oakland bands Sister Fucker and Generation, and Brooklyn-via Oakland band Buddy Bag.

Parts & Labor (who are on hiatus) member Dan Friel plays the venue on April 25 and again on May 2. The 5/2 show is with ex-Parts & Labor member Sarah Lipstate aka Noveller, who can also be found at Glasslands on Thursday (4/19) with Lotus Plaza and Disappears (tickets). Dan Friel also plays The Stone on May 4 at 8 PM before Bunnybrains plays at 10 PM. All Dan Friel dates are listed below.

Mr. Dream, who recently returned home after touring with Cloud Nothings, play Death by Audio on May 9 with Yvette, Pile, and Grass is Green.

Guardian Alien, who played DBA this past Friday (4/13), and plays The Stone on Tuesday (4/17), will play Death by Audio on May 11 with DJ Dog Dick and 2 Ton Bug.

The next night, May 12, pg.99 offshoot Pygmy Lush, who opens for Young Widows at Saint Vitus on 4/23, plays with PC Worship, Horse Lords, and Spa Castles. You can catch PC Worship at DBA again on May 25 with Psychic Ills and Ex Cops.

Toronto garage punks Teenanger, who will be in the Northeast US to open for Ty Segall and White Fence in Philly (5/18), will stick around to play Death by Audio in Brooklyn one day later (5/19) with Family Curse.

What was Tim's solo stuff like?

All ages hardcore-hating Death By Audio celebrated their fifth anniversary of booking mostly pretentious art rock with some rare token hardcore booked.

Fuck
this
place.

BTW is it a prerequisite that all men in bands who play this place have to have beards?

Is there even ONE band made up of native New Yorkers playing this shithole? I love it. These people from somewhere else open some place with parents' money (wtf else?) and don't book the local color. The music scene version of people who decided NY is their place when it's not, it's EVERYONE'S.

Dear Death By Audio-

Please grant D one show maybe earlyish on a monday night. He's really cranky and can't afford proper therapy on a punker paycheck. He feel's sad inside and someone needs to lift him up. He's not a mean person he's just stuck in the cycle of hate handed down to him. Paint him a rainbow the size of Rollins neck.

kthxbai! ^_^

Yes there has to be at least 60 percent beardos at DBA or St. Vitus on any given night to prove their aged road worn toughness at 27 years old.

2:28: As opposed to what, 58 years old?

In a band filled with native new yorkers, played at DBA many times. maybe if you weren't in a played out NYHC band that has not stayed connected with the current hardcore scene in NY you'd have gigs?

Benjy Bronk + Rip Taylor = Tim Harrington

Many of these people seem genuinely confused and full of PBR, like someone blindfolded them at their Hummus party and dragged them to a show. THEY JUST STARE! I'd throw a punch just to get things moving.

I have a need to state it is a well considered script that truly says profit in the people who read it
