The Drums at Terminal 5 last week (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
The Drums

Two indie pop bands that both lean a bit more on the pop than the indie, The Drums and Chairlift, will share a bill in NYC for a free Diet Coke/SPIN-presented show at Brooklyn Bowl on August 22 with a special guest DJ. This 21+ show is free but RSVP is required. The flier is below.

The Drums recently wrapped up a three night run with Bloc Party last week. Meanwhile, that same week Chairlift played their first of three shows with The xx (the next two are in October).

A list of all dates and the show flier below...

I wish I could say the same for you and your crew of flunkies. You guys want some grapes?... Bitches.

Chairlift: cock-punch your manager for that insane routing. You're in and out of California about four times in 10 days. That is fucked. You are likely going to hate eachother and breakup after a horrendous schedule like that. And your rich fat desk-sitting manager won't have his 15%. Get real.

managers dont book tours and im sure the out-of-cali date will be fly-in w/ rented backline.

I have many gay friends, and we get along really well and joke and all. But The Drums? Those guys are total faggots.

12:09 - You might have a problem. I received a confirmation back on Aug. 15th...the same day that I requested one.

Your spam folder is smarter than you, or protecting you from going to this shit show.

1:06 and 1:07, thank you for your kind reply, I just received the confirmation! :)

Well, you are incredibly and extremely welcome, my friend.

the drums are really shitty, last night confirmed that for me. wow.

9:10 - If you had said Chairlift, I would have heartily agreed with you. I thought they made wallpaper sound musically interesting. And I'm no super fan of The Drums but I think they clearly blew Chairlift off the stage (admittedly, that's not saying much) and, at least put on a fun, upbeat twee pop show. Certainly no musical depth or substance...just good, light hearted fun.

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.
