Kurt Heasley of Lilys played Trans-Pecos earlier this month with his onetime bandmate Don Devore (who's currently of Sick Feeling). Kurt's now announced an official Lilys show, happening at Baby's All Right on October 9 and tickets are on sale now.

It's a very special one-time-only show which Heasley's calling "Corruption Wrecked My Life," featuring "never before or rarely performed early material 1990-1995." That time period was when Lilys were a shoegazy band and released such records as Eccsame The Photon Band and In The Presence of Nothing for labels like spinART and Slumberland. You can stream those two records below.

With Devore as musical director of this special show, they've put together a big band version of Lilys, that in addition to Heasley features:

James Richardson (MGMT)
Will Berman (MGMT)
Travis Rosenberg
Matt Werth (RVNG Intl. founder)
Ryan Rapsys (Euphone, The Sea & Cake)
Alex Craig (Limited, Ducktails, Big Troubles)
Stream Lilys' Eccsame The Photon Band and In The Presence of Nothing below...

Josephine Foster

Folk singer Josephine Foster may be a contemporary artist, but she feels transported directly from 1969 (it makes a lot of sense she's on the new Karen Dalton tribute). Tonight (7/29) she plays NYC with a folk singer who actually is from the late '60s, the legendary Ed Askew (who she's played with before). The show is at Trans-Pecos and opening is another '60s-inspired artist, Colby Nathan (of New England Patriots). Tickets are on sale.

It's the only date for Ed Askew at the moment, and Josephine's only other date is also in NYC this week: a free show at Fulton Stall Market on Friday (7/31).

UPDATE: The Fulton Stall Market show has been cancelled.

Josephine's last album was 2013's I'm A Dreamer on Fire Records. Listen to the title track from that, and the title track of Ed Askew's '60s classic, Ask the Unicorn, below...

richard papiercuts

Mystery man Richard Papiercuts was part of noisy NYC band The Chinese Restaurants, who were more whispered about than seen, and has collaborated with Mattin and other autre artists. His solo work blends post-punk, old school rock n' roll, soul and other influences held together with his distinctive melodramatic, on-if-not-over-the-edge vocal style. Outsider art? Maybe, but accessible. His new album, If, is coming out in September via Ever/Never and we've got the premiere of the album's intense opening cut, "How It Really Begins," which you can stream below.
