Updated tour dates are listed, along with a flyer for the Shea show and a stream of Blonder Tongue Audio Baton, below...

Chris Gethard

Tonight's (5/28) the premiere of the cable TV debut of The Chris Gethard Show (previously on public access), which the cable network Fusion recently picked up. If you'd like to watch it, check out the listings above for where to watch. Guests on the first episode are Ilana Glazer and
Abbi Jacobson of Broad City along with musical guest The Front Bottoms. Extra footage, including of the band, will also be posted on Fusion's website.

You can also watch the episode if you're going to the BrooklynVegan-presented premiere party at Rough Trade tonight. If you're going, you had to RSVP (which is now closed), but even with RSVP admission is first come, first served. Get there early! Doors are at 7.

UPDATE: The show aired and the premiere party happened and it was all awesome! Stay tune for more on that.

In addition to a screening of the show and comedy from Chris, tonight's show has music from Screaming Females, Jeff Rosenstock, Mal Blum and Hiccup.

Mal is also teaming up with Chris for one of his two Career Suicide shows at Union Hall, which will have "an hour of stand up focusing on suicide, alcoholism, and all the other funniest parts of life." She plays the second (June 15), and the first one (June 1) has another of Chris's musically inclined friends, Mikey Erg. Tickets for both are on sale now.

Mal Blum also has Palisades show (7/2) coming up, and Hiccup play one there with Chumped a day earlier.

Chris is also part of UCB's 2015 Del Close Marathon at the end of June.

Vanity

Evan: What I'm trying to do with Vanity, is it should be drinking music. It's fucking beer drinking music. Drinking is my goddamn favorite activity. It's the only activity that matters. It makes everything in life better including your own death as a result of drinking. What are you gonna do if you don't drink? Have a kid? That's dumb. The kid can't even drink. With rock 'n' roll, it can be such a cliché, and with oi!, it can be such a cliché, and if you mix the two you've got a double cliché. But I wanted music that... fuck. There's a lot of anger there. At other people. At myself. I wanted music that you could drink and have a good time to in an aggressive way.

Colman: Maybe even shed a tear in an aggressive way.

Evan: I'm not shedding a tear. I'm not fucking having that. [interview with Noisey]

NYC punk band Vanity is the brainchild of Evan Radigan and Colman Durkee, who have played in The Rival Mob, Nuclear Spring, and CREEM, and their live lineup also includes members of Ivy, Warthog, Ajax, Survival, Pox and Weird TV. While their hardcore roots show a bit in Vanity, this band leans a lot heavier on the power pop side of Oi!, a genre Evan and Colman talk a lot about in the interview quoted above. A few months back they released their album, Vain In Life, on Katorga Works, which is absolutely worth checking out if you haven't already. You can pick it up (name your price) at bandcamp and stream it in full below.

Vanity play their hometown a lot (perhaps you saw them with Sheer Mag at NY's Alright last month, which is a pretty great pairing), and at the moment they have two shows scheduled. The first is opening for the great Destruction Unit when their tour hits Palisades on June 26. That show also has Shredded Nerve on the bill, and tickets are still available. Their other show is July 10 at Acheron with Ajax, Fatigue, Semper Eadem and No Parole. Tickets for that show are on sale too.

As for Destruction Unit, that show is one of two NYC stops on their tour. The other is a free one the following afternoon, part of Union Pool's Summer Thunder series.

Stream Vain In Life below...

Superjam

As you may know, the annual Bonnaroo Superjam takes place Saturday night this year, and now the lineup has been announced. Once again, it brings together musicians from very different musical backgrounds, including Metallica's Rob Trujillo, Run DMC's DMC, Chance the Rapper, Reggie Watts, Pretty Lights, Jamie Lidell, John Medeski, Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, fun.), Eric Krasno, Karl Denson, Oteil Burbridge, Robert 'Sput' Searight (Snarky Puppy), Brian Coogan and Brownout Horns with special guests Cherub, Rhiannon Giddens and more. The Superjam begins at 1:30 AM (so technically Sunday morning, July 14).

Last year's had Skrillex, Janelle Monae, Chance the Rapper, members of The Doors, The Grateful Dead and more. Watch a documentary on that one, below...

Speedy

Speedy Ortiz have been very active tourers lately. They already played NYC once this year, and have a T5 show with Courtney Barnett and Torres coming up on 7/22 (tickets), and in the past 24 hours they were announced for Riot Fest Denver, Riot Fest Chicago, and Fun Fun Fun Fest.

That T5 show is actually one of two NYC shows for Speedy, as they were recently added to Waxahatchee's River Rocks show on July 9 at Pier 84. The very talented Weyes Blood is on that show too, and it's free. Like all River Rocks shows on Pier 84, gates open at 6 PM and the music starts at 7.

Pier 84 is the same pier that 4Knots Festival is happening this year, which also just announced an expanded lineup, including Super Furry Animals.

Speedy recently put out a video for "Raising the Skate," one of the highlights off their new album Foil Deer. Watch that, with their updated list of tour dates, below...

Reigning Sound

Memphis garage rockers Reigning Sound will be heading to Europe for a tour next month, but before they board the plane they'll stop in NYC to play Union Pool on June 17. Tickets are on sale now. All tour dates are listed, along with a Rdio stream of 2014's Shattered LP, below.

Meanwhile, Reigning Sound pals Detroit Cobras will be in NYC this summer too, playing WFMU Monty Hall on July 17 with The Ribeye Brothers, and Brooklyn Bowl on July 18. Tickets for Monty Hall are on sale now and Brooklyn Bowl goes on sale Friday (5/29) at 10 AM. Detroit Cobras will also play the Boston area at Allston, MA's Great Scott on July 20 (tickets) and those appear to be their only upcoming dates.

Prurient

Prurient (aka Dominick Fernow) recently announced a tour opening for Godflesh for late summer/early fall, but Dominick will be playing shows sooner than that under his Vatican Shadow moniker. Those shows include a Nothing Changes party in NYC on June 14 at Home Sweet Home with Shifted, 400PPM and Dual Action. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All Vatican Shadow dates are listed below.

Prurient is also on a few festivals in addition to that Godflesh tour, including Hopscotch and Pop Montreal, and he was recently added to Pitchfork's NXNE show. The rest of that lineup is Vince Staples, Majical Cloudz, Tink, Jessica Pratt, Amen Dunes, Container, Sannhet, Rabit and Hvad.

The tour with Godflesh hits NYC on 9/15 at Warsaw, also with Regis on the bill. Tickets are still available. All Prurient and Vatican Shadow dates, with a stream from Prurient's new album, Frozen Niagara Falls, below...

Hysterese

Germany's Hysterese have been around for about five years and have two albums out so far, one from 2013 and another from 2014 (both are self titled). The latter got a North American release through Dirt Cult Records, the same label who gave us other cool stuff like Big Dick and the Iron Chic / Low Culture split. You could accurately call them pop punk, but only in the same way you'd call The Marked Men or Tenement that. It's punchy and catchy, but it's also raw and has a dark side. They've got different vocalists bouncing off each other, kinda the way Dillinger Four or Hot Water Music do, but the chord progressions are more Bauhaus than HWM or D4. Stream both albums below.

According to Hysterese's past show archive, they've yet to make it over to the US, but that will finally change this June. The tour begins in Brooklyn on June 5 at The Place (259 Norman Ave) with locals Pleasure Industry and The Brass (mem Creeping Dose). That show starts at 8 PM, is $8 at the door, and all ages.

Some dates are still being confirmed, but Hysterese's current US tour schedule is below...
