Royal Baths circa now
Royal Baths

Royal Baths are opening for Moon Duo tomorrow night (10/5) at Knitting Factory and the show will be their first with a new line-up that includes Lesley Hann of Friends on bass (who seems to have left that group, along with Matthew Molnar, if their most recent 285 Kent show is any indication). Tickets are still available.

If you can't make it tomorrow night, Royal Baths have a bunch of other shows coming up, including Sunday (10/7) at Bowery Electric (whose booking seems to be getting more interesting now that Sam Mickens has been handling some of the shows there) with Larkin Grimm, Behavior & M. Lamar; Wednesday (10/10) at Glasslands with Grooms, Dum Dum Girls offshoot SISU and Punks on Mars (tickets); October 16 at 285 Kent with Forma and the Golden Awesome; and a CMJ show at Cheap Storage on October 19 with King Tuff, Habibi, Turnip King and Total Slacker (tickets). Royal Baths tour dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Royal Baths' Jeremy Cox features on Blasted Canyons' version of "Venus in Furs" that will be on the upcoming Castle Face Velvet Underground tribute album we told you about. That album is out November 6. Royal Baths most recent album, Better Luck Next Life, came out back in February.

Speaking of Total Slacker, the band have had a sad week with the death of their drummer Terence Connor in a hit-and-run. The band will pay tribute to him this Saturday (10/6) at Cheap Storage with a dance party featuring DJ sets from Weird Rivers, Cool Serbia, DOM, and Prince Rama. Suggested donation is $5 and all procedes go to Connor's family. More info here.

RIP Friends. All gave some, some gave all.

what happened to the whole "it's called FRIENDS because we're really FRIENDS, lol!" marketing gimmick?

"let's all love each other we're a community" scenester posturing dies hard when paying PR companies can't fool enough people into thinking your music is good, huh?

If Friends can't make it who can? Those kids were straight shameless. RIP, spectacular retards. This the end of an era.

We did it guys! We broke up Friends!!!! #1 BV comment section achievement ever!

Before everyone gets to excited, does the fact that this girl is playing bass in another band necessarily mean that Friends broke up? Call me crazy...but I've actually heard of wacky, madcap schemes like people playing in more than one band and band members quitting but being replaced.

7:58, it's just wishful thinking for some people. But I'd rather Friends not break up. They're fun to make fun of.

If there is no fat bro, it's not Friends.

I have on good authority that Fat Bro got fired for snoring too much.
No joke.

Shout out to Fat Bro. Keep your head up.

My father works for Heinken and he told me this weekend that Blur, Muse and Depeche Mode are the headliners for Coachella. Heineken is sponsoring this year again.
