Vows

As you may know, Brooklyn DIY venue Emet is likely shutting down but the people behind the venue have teamed up with Showpaper for an "Emet in Exile" show at Trans-Pecos tonight (5/23). The show, which doubles as a Showpaper benefit, features The Gradients (who also play next week with What Moon Things), Vows, Sunflower Bean, Onwe and Somewhere. $7-$20 suggested at the door. More info here.

Meanwhile, electro-goth duo Vows just played a live set for WFMU earlier this week (5/22) on a show with a genre-appropriate playlist of tracks by Sisters of Mecy, Bauhaus, Christian Death, Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie and the Banshees and more by DJ Nanase Hikaru. You can listen to an archive of the full show here.

Last week (5/14) Vows played The Bowery Electric. You can check out a video of them playing "Councillor" at that show, below...

If a pop up hipster space falls in the city, and no one is there to see it, did it ever really exist?

Hipsters should be rounded up and shipped to an island

What about Market Hotel, is that a lost cause?

Apparently this is a private club. You have to be a member of facebook to view their listings.

A member of Facebook? Ugh, so exclusive.

And what the fuck do you do?

yeah, seriously, I'm so sick of that Todd P guy organizing diverse, inexpensive musical events, and letting people know about them. What an asshole.

Todd P. is real diverse. Lo-fi bands from Brooklyn = 90% of his bookings.

Everyone loves to hate. Nice job Todd P.

Aww, yeah! You don't find this dope music on KEXP, do ya?!

Clearly this Todd P person has never heard of The iPods

Trans-Pecos is super beautiful and 90% avant music and chamber quintets.

Showpaper is wonderful and its altruism is obvious. A physical document is something to treasure these days.

Glad to see a post about The Gradients!

Oh the irony of BV commenters who hate hipsters. Got any mirrors at home?

If you don't like someone who's organized unique music events outside of the NYC club system for years, just don't go to the shows! Very few cities have a multitude of underground music promoters, and a free weekly paper that collects all the info. If you don't like the lineups, book your own shows. Don't complain about having too much culture. What spoiled little fucks some of you guys are.

I saw vows at Trans Pecos... it changed my life. If This is because of todd p, then i'm all for it. I like finding bands who aren't in the corporate money making "indie" scene, real bands who carry their shit to shows and hang out with us afterwards.
