Pinback sign to Temp. Residence ++ Young Widows are here

Young Widows @ Red 7 in Austin – March 21, 2009
Young Widows

Young Widows are in town, and the Louisville Sluggers will be joined by like-minded Aussies My Disco, as well as punks Tournament and caustic drum machine killers of The Austerity Program. I’m talking about the show at Europa in Brooklyn TONIGHT (4/1). Tickets are still available. Fans of The Austerity Program can also check for the band at Union Pool on April 26th if you can’t make it tonight (shame on you).

In other news, Young Widows‘ current -uh- recording residence, Temporary Residence Limited, recently announced the signing of Pinback to their label… a move they proudly label “PINBACK + TEMPORARY RESIDENCE = PB&J W/ THE CRUSTS CUT OFF!”. Agreed, though I guess it depends on the type of jelly.

Pinback would like to thank Touch and Go Records for putting out our last 2 releases. We have nothing but good things to say about the label. It’s hard to see them go. The releases that they did over the last 25+ years have been an inspiration to us, and it was an honor to be on the label…. At the same time we are looking forward to starting a new chapter in Pinback‘s future with Temporary Residence… We can’t wait and are looking forward to writing a solid new record for them.”

This is not the first TRL / Rob Crow (of Pinback) joint venture. They released his solo album Living Well on the label in 2007.

Pinback played Music Hall of Williamsburg with Kylesa in October, and Rob Crow’s “alleged” side project Goblin Cock played Highline Ballroom in February.

Young Widows were busy-as-all-get-out during SXSW, but still found time to add a last minute, late show at Red 7 on March 21st (the final night of SXSW). They did it to open for the almighty Frodus who used a lot of Young Widows’ gear (and who also played hours earlier at Radio Room). Young Widows pics from that show are above and below (Frodus pics coming one day soon).
