“Thanks to everyone who performed, volunteered, worked, attended, and donated. It was an awesome time and we hope to start linking to people’s photographs and reviews of it soon from the Web site.

We have some merch left over that we want to share:

3xCD set – 29 songs of all exclusive material from Brainwaves performers and friends of Brainwashed (limited to 500 copies).
Shirts – these are heavy cotton Fruit of the Loom shirts (not those flimsy other brands) available in S, M, L, and XL (these shirts are extremely limited)” [Brainwashed]

Stars of the Lid played two shows at (le) poisson rouge in NYC before heading up to the Boston-area for Brainwaves over the weekend. Chocolate Bobka said, ” A heavy combo of ethereal arrangements and intergalactic visualizations made me doze off a few times, but in the best way possible.” Hooves on the Turf said, says they “played with a fantastic string quartet.”

Silver Apples played Brainwaves too, and then on Saturday night joined Grails, both as their opener and as part of their band for great sets at Knitting Factory in NY. Silver Apples’ next show is at The Kitchen.

Also on the bill Friday night at Brainwaves: Meat Beat Manifesto, who played a NYC show a couple of days earlier.

Kranky label-mates To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie and Boduf Songs were both at Brainwaves and will next play a show in NYC, at Pianos, tonight, Tuesday November 25th. They also have a show coming up at the Annex. More details and dates HERE.
