Quicksand at MHOW 8/25/2012
Quicksand
Quicksand

Quicksand completed their pair of NYC dates with a Saturday night show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (8/25), joined by Bowery Ballroom opener Italian Horn and special surprise guest Reggie Watts. The show, which sold-out almost instantaneously, reportedly saw the band much more relaxed as they tore through the identical set from the Bowery show (pictures/review) with an addition of the instrumental track "Baphomet" from their classic Slip. Setlist is below.

In a conversation with Walter Schreifels following the Music Hall show, he indicated that Quicksand were open to future dates depending on scheduling. But more importantly, he and the band enjoyed themselves and that the currently scheduled dates are far from the end of the road. Fingers crossed.

Until more dates surface, your last shot to catch Quicksand goes down at FYF in Los Angeles this weekend.

Pictures and video from MHoW are below.

Great show!

After read

It's really sad...You begin to realize that a lot of the younger set are so close minded musically.

Quicksand was not a bro-band at all.

Now Trash Talk is basically a run of the mill hardcore bro band..they are lame!!

I flew out from LA for these pair of shows and I am not a bro...i just love great music that is played with passion and soul. (Something that is lacking these days)

OK Rant over..let the attempts at sarcasm begin little d-bags

Posted by Whydoesitmatter? | August 27, 2012 2:34 PM

Error Type 11- now that's a "bro-band." Quicksand was the real deal. As far as being emo, they started that particular thread of "emo." If you weren't around when it was somewhat novel, that's sad for you, but to shit on this, especially when so many people are so obviously enjoying themeselves, is just pathetic.
Sure, Fugazi was the real breakthrough for "emo", but Quicksand took it into another hybrid direction. As did Drive Like Jehu, Jawbox, Shudder to Think, etc. Poor kids today have NOTHING remotely like this exciting time... glad I did.

I saw Quicksand back in the day and was unable to see these shows. I wished I did, Quicksand was/is a soulful band. If you don't get that, I feel very sorry for you. Guess you've never seen them live and don't get it. Hope there are more shows.

If that opening bass line on "Too Official" doesn't make you want to run through a wall, you got big problems.

2:34 - Totally agree with the Trash Talk comment. Them and Odd Future have been manufacterd by Vice, or someoone similar - a 2012 boy band catering to a cliche skater 'bro'. If the general public can't see that you're either too stupid or too busy buying Supreme hats. They'll be gone in a year and onto the next fad, and so will all of their fans. Good riddance.

can't tell if band got lame. or always sucked.

I am not a bro. Really I'm not. So not a bro. Not me. Nope. No bro here.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 3:37 PM

they're not a bro band, that's a dumb comment. granted some of the people at the shows were assholes in a bro-ish way, but not the majority. and that's not the band's fault.

@329 trash talk is shit, and so is half of odd future, but the other half (Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean) will be around for a while, so i'd get used to them.

3:38: so says 19 year old barista transplant from South Carolina. At least I hope you're 19, cause if you're over 21 and think those aformentioned people are talented, I feel so sorry for your "BRO" ass, as it probably won't get any better.

@349 you do understand that i never mentioned anywhere in my post that those three members of odd future are 'talented' - just that they aren't going anywhere. basically, understand that you're an asshole who starts shit for no good reason.

4:36 obviously, you're too stupid to interact with someone with an IQ that's above that of your average Odd Future fan.

Don't worry, things usually change for the better in your late 20's.

Chill y'all, drink a beer on the way to the venue, get there early, hit up a bar nearby, head over before the band starts, get a drink inside, have one more and then it's time to groove, s'what I did for a rockin' good time

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 6:13 PM

i honestly don't understand all the negative comments besides the fact that they must be very gratifying to the people posting.
very simply...it made a lot of people happy to see them again and to hear the music live. saying things like you'll never listen to them again or that they are/were/are not a 'bro' band is very much irrelevant to the people that were genuinely excited and giddy to see quicksand again...it made me and so many others happy.

I was the bro at the show with the star tattoos on each hand and each elbow. The ratio of bros to hos was not cool, so I walked out to go find my other bros.

wish I had flown out for these shows, now I am going to drive 6 hours to hang out in a field in downtown smog ridden LA with total bro-brahs on saturday just to see quicksand for the first time in over 15 years. All of you are lucky bastards. Bros or not.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 5:06 PM

Bros missed the lesson in irony. Bros don't care. What do they know about partying ... or anything else?

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 5:41 PM

wonder what constitutes a "bro" to most of the retards posting on here. someone who likely beat you up or bullied you in school? someone who got laid while you didn't? someone who says "bro" or "dude" to their friends? someone who likes music you don't? someone who just isn't you? what is it?

from the looks of the photos, it seems like there were some frat boy looking meatheads who were probably really drunk, but calling quicksand bro music is just stupid. pearl jam, on the other hand, is bro music. as is kings of leon, or dave matthews band. quicksand, not so much.

thanks

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 8:47 PM

I'm guessing that 8:47 is what constitutes a 'bro,' because he doesn't seem to understand that we're saying bros are showing up to Quicksand shows rather than Quicksand having been a bro band. Thanks for reaffirming, bro!

Posted by Anonymous | August 29, 2012 9:35 AM

3:50: I'll go with c), you sounding like a butt-hurt trendie who's miffed (along with all the other hipsterites that only want homogeneous crowds at the show of bands they ALSO happen to like) that some people not of your cliquey-clique clique ALSO attended the show. *gasp!* the horror.

This why I think "bros" are more tolerable than fruity, nose-up-in-the-air-I'm-above-you-even-though-I-have-a-hidden-inferiority-complex hipsters/trendies/whateverthefuck.


I'm sure you see where I'm getting at, but I know you'll just stoop to a smarmy, "clever" and "hip" "diss" that you can use to help pat yourself on the back to make you finally feel good about yourself (if only temporarily). Or, who knows? Maybe I'll get lucky and you'll just continue to argue over some dipshit line of thinking.

Enjoy life!

^oh, Miss "Enjoy Life" is back, the butthurt bro, or just Buttbro for short. Hey Buttbro, it's nice you have learned how to project your insecurity and self-hatred onto others, but have you been honest with yourself and admitted your homosexual desires? I know that you don't want the other bros to find out (now THAT would be awkward!) but Buttbro you really should admit it to yourself and maybe your mom? The day is still young, you have time now. It's best to face these things head on, Buttbro.
