Angry Cassette

Slash is playing Hammerstein Ballroom on September 18 with Myles Kennedy and Foxy Shazam. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

With all the '90s nostalgia that goes on, here's a bit that we might have been okay with not coming back. The Summerland tour with Everclear, Sugar Ray, Lit, Gin Blossoms, and Marcy Playground hits NYC for a show at Roseland Ballroom tonight (7/18). Tickets for tonight's show are available. The tour also hits Bethal Woods Center for the Arts on Friday (7/20) in Bethel, NY and PNC Bank Arts Center on Saturday (7/21) in Holmdel, NJ.

Speaking of '90s nostalgia that should have stayed put in the '90s, The Offspring are playing Terminal 5 on September 19. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today at noon, with a general sale starting Friday (7/20) at noon. In other news, did you hear that new Green Day song?

The Morning Benders, who changed their name (and err, their sound too...) to POP ETC are playing NYC shows on Sunday (7/22) at Bowery Hotel with Angela McCluskey, Sean Rowe, and special guests, and August 2 at Santos with Haim. They will also perform live on East Village Radio on Friday (7/20) at 4 PM. RSVP for the Bowery Hotel show is open and tickets are on sale for the Santos show.

Day 1 and Day 4 of the Revelation Records 25th Anniversary are sold out but 4-Day passes are still available.

Tickets for the Sharon Van Etten show at Town Hall go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for the Flying Lotus show at Terminal 5 go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for the Dan Deacon shows at Bowery Ballroom and MHOW go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for They MIght Be Giants' 3-night New Year's run go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for the Other Lives and Indians shows at Bowery Ballroom and MHOW go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for the Two Gallants shows at Bowery Ballroom and MHOW go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for the Jaill and Fergus & Geronimo show at Mercury Lounge go on AmEx presale today at noon.

Tickets for the Devotchka shows at Bowery Ballroom and MHOW go on AmEx presale today at noon.

The Killers (early '00s nostalgia?) play Webster Hall on July 23 after Firefly Music Festival. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/20) at noon. They also play a "private" NYC show one day later (7/24) for a taping of 'Live from the Artist's Den.' You can enter for a chance to go. What do you think of their new song?

Marcy Playground is great. One hit wonder maybe, but the rest of that album is excellent, as was Shapeshifter.

new killers sounds like realllllly bad 10th rate springsteen. that green day song is one of the worst things i've ever heard.

if the gin blossoms and everclear were the only bands on that show and it cost less than 15 dollars I would probably go. if fastball played i'd pay like 20.

I've heard worse than the new Green Day song. In fact, it's not too bad. Not one of their best, but it's catchy power pop.

Not sure where the demand was for Sugar Ray. Isn't that guy making more money being a correspondant for Extra? Not sure why he would waste his time being an opening act on a crappy club/shed package.

WHAT DOES GABE SPIERER THINK OF ALL THIS?!?

The dude who wrote the songs on gin blossoms first album killed himself, 'found out about you' is an awesome song, sugar ray are enjoyable light pop (somebody told me they were originally, or maybe just mcgrath was in, a hardcore band?), much better than that mcgrath doppelganger's band crazytown, everclear were pretty cool, a few decent songs, lit had 2 songs I know of, didn't care for either too much, but I thought they were a little more recent than the other bands on this bill, and i only know the one song by marcy playground, they seem to be the outlier on this tour

Second Gin Blossoms album was good too!

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2012 3:17 PM

before Fly, Sugar Ray was hardcore. true story.

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2012 3:22 PM

Second Gin Blossoms album was disappointing. As 3:15 pointed out, Doug Hopkins was the band's principal songwriter. Once he offed himself it was all downhill for the band.

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2012 3:24 PM

@3:15 can you tell us what you think of 6 other 90s bands in 1 sentence plz?

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2012 3:24 PM

Sugar Ray was a crappy hardcore band, but then they were given the opportunity to se11 out and get repackaged as light alt rock (given Mark's good looks), so they took that opportunity to the extreme. No disrespect to the guy, I'd probably have done the same thing. But with that said, I think he's a better fit as an Extra correspondent.

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2012 3:27 PM

to add to my last statement at 3:27, I'd have done the same thing too, if my music sucked anyway. It's not like they were making great art when they were a hardcore band.

Radiohead > Pearl Jam > Flaming Lips > Weezer > Soundgarden

When BV withholds a comment before releasing it, what it really means is that the comment will not be released.
