You may remember that last year we wrote about Spoonboy's split EP with The Goodbye Party, and he's now made a video for its super-catchy track "Linus and Me" which stars members of the UK indie pop band Martha (who he also put out a split with last year). Martha's Nathan Stephens-Griffin also directed it, and Ben Epstein of The Max Levine Ensemble (which Spoonboy main man David Combs is also part of) edited. It premieres below. If you haven't picked up the split yet, you can get it physically or digitally.

David will be retiring the Spoonboy moniker after a few shows, including one in Brooklyn on Saturday (5/23) at SIlent Barn with Bellows, The Goodbye Party, Emilyn Brodsky and Shark Shark (mem Nana Grizol). Doors for that all ages show are at 8 PM, and admission is $8.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...

Housecore Horror Festival

Pantera/Down frontman Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Festival is returning for year three this November, and will now be held in San Antonio, TX (it was previously in Austin). The festival will be at the Aztec Theater from November 13-15, 2015, and so far the lineup includes Suffocation, Autopsy, Cripple Bastards, Nails, SYk & Dalila Kayros, YOB, Eyehategod, Child Bite and Warbeast, with many more TBA.

Anselmo said he wanted to continue the festival to honor festival co-founder Corey Mitchell, who sadly passed away last year. He said:

I've got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be. There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that's what we're going to do. We miss him and think about him every day.
In addition to the music, the festival will screen "film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell." Tickets will be on sale soon.

It's a busy year for Phil Anselmo. He recently said in an interview that he's working on new music with Superjoint Ritual, his '90s-'00s supergroup with Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod, Crowbar, Down) and frequent collaborator Kevin Bond, which reunited at last year's Housecore Horror fest (video below). He also mentioned he's working on new Illegals material, and has a "secret death metal project with some secret other guys from across the equator." Who could they be?

Shilpa Ray released her new album, Last Year's Savage, this week via Northern Spy. Her swaggering punk/blues/cabaret style is in full effect and lyrically sharp. You can stream the whole thing below. One of the album's more acerbic tracks is "Johnny Thunders Fantasy Space Camp" and we've got the premiere of its video in this post. Using footage from a nightclub, it juxtaposes real life dancefloor debauchery with Shilpa's disdain of rock n' roll hedonism. It's pretty entertaining and you can watch it below.

You can celebrate Last Year's Savage's release with Shilpa at Rough Trade on Saturday (5/23) which also has No Wave skronker James Chance on the bill as well. Tickets are still available. There's an afterparty happening at Black Bear Bar which is free with your Rough Trade Ticket. Flyer below. She'll be on tour for the next two weeks, and all dates are listed below.

We've also got a signed copy of Last Year's Savage on vinyl to give away. Details on that below.

Jane's Addiction / ATPBS @ Capitol Theatre 5/19/2015

Janes Addiction
A Place to Bury Strangers

Maybe they're older; maybe they don't care as much; maybe they were stoned. Theatrics (or lack thereof) aside, Jane's Addiction are still rock stars of the highest caliber, and they're not about to let you forget it.

Always one for flamboyance, Farrell donned a flamingo jacket as the group -- whose ever-evolving lineup has settled on Farrell, Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins, and bassist Chris Chaney -- kicked off the show with the lumbering bass of Nothing's Shocking opener "Up the Beach." Navarro's guitar caught fire on the expansive "Ocean Size," from which Farrell segued into an anecdote about his father being from Bensonhurst before the punk-rock kick of "Had a Dad." - [Village Voice]

Jane's Addiction just finished a four-show swing through the NY area with Brooklyn noisemakers A Place to Bury Strangers that included shows at Brooklyn Bowl (5/13), NJ's Starland Ballroom (5/15), Huntington, NY's The Paramount (5/19) and Port Chester's Capitol Theatre (5/19). We've got pictures from the Cap show in this post.

All four shows were part of Jane's Addition's Nothing's Shocking tour where the band play that classic 1988 album in full. They also encored with a handful of non-Shocking hits, that came with a troupe of dancers, some of whome hung above the stage -- Jim Rose-style -- from hooks in their skin. It was just like the old days of Lollapalooza. The review quoted above was from the Brooklyn Bowl show which happened the same night as the big RBMA-ified Nothing Changes show at Output across the street. Perry Farrell stopped by Output to take in some Pharmakon and Prurient after Jane's show was over.

During their run with Jane's, APTBS also played Saturday night (5/16) at Brooklyn Night Bazaar which will close after this weekend's shows. More pics of them and Jane's, below...

Destroyer hasn't released a full length since 2011's excellent Kaputt, but he's finally ready to do that this year. He'll release Poison Season, a double album, on August 28 via Merge in the US and Dead Oceans in the UK. He just shared first single "Dream Lover," which is more of a swaggering upbeat rock song than the sophisti-pop of Kaputt, but still full of saxophones. Listen, and check out the album tracklist, below.

Dan Bejar & co. will also be touring internationally in support of the record for about two months from September to November. That tour hits NYC on October 4 at Webster Hall. That date and many others are with Jennifer Castle. Tickets for Webster are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the new song and album tracklist, below...

Memorial Day Weekend is this weekend and, as usual, there's no lack of things for music fans to do. Maybe you're taking the opportunity to get out of town and head to a festival. Metalheads surely know it's that time of year again for Maryland Deathfest (Neurosis, Napalm Death, Yob, Triptykon, Inter Arma, DRI, Mobb Deep, more). Those who want to dance could head to Detroit for Movement (Squarepusher, !!!, Disclosure DJ set, Method Man, Hudson Mohawke, Dog Blood, Danny Brown, DJ Snoop Dogg, more). Punks may want to hit Bled Fest (Modern Life Is War, Touche Amore, The Early November, Small Brown Bike, Pianos Become the Teeth, more) or Punk Rock Bowling (Refused, Rancid playing And Out Come the Wolves, Discharge, Sick Of It All, Murder City Devils, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Muffs, more). And indie rock fans can head to Boston Calling (Beck, Pixies, My Morning Jacket, Tame Impala, St. Vincent, TV on the Radio, Sharon Van Etten, more).

A couple good New York options that are just a few hours away from NYC are electronic festival Mysteryland, which happens at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (where the original Woodstock took place) and has Diplo, Skream, Matthew Dear, Classixx, Dillon Francis, Empire of the Sun, Giraffage, iLoveMakonnen, Moon Boots and more; and there's the first free concerts of the summer at Montauk's The Surf Lodge. They have Mac DeMarco on Friday (5/22), Escort on Saturday (5/23), and Capital Cities on Sunday (5/24).

But if you'd rather stay in NYC for the weekend, there's plenty to do here as well. We've made a list of ten shows we think are worth seeing. Browse that list, along with a few honorable mentions at the end, below...
