Atoms For Peace @ Roseland 2010 (more by Bao Nguyen)
"After the opening of the Stanley Donwood exhibition at Subliminal Projects Gallery an afterparty was scheduled at MOCA in LA with Gonjasuffi, Ana Caldaron, as well as Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich (Nigel: "We're Djing at Mike D's bash"). The two under the name Atoms For Peace played 5 new songs with Thom Yorke vocals. And it all points out to tracks from the highly anticipated Atoms For Peace album.A couple of videos from the set, a recently-gone viral video of Carrie Manolakos covering "Creep" at Le Poisson Rouge, and a video of little kids reviewing Radiohead, below...
Atoms For Peace is live band of Thom Yorke, which includes Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea. A new album was in the works, but till today there was no sign of new material." [At Easeweb]

"I've never seen MHOW get down like this"" - Eric Bees
Hot Canadian R&B artist The Weeknd began a post-Coachella, in-demand club tour last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn (4/25). The tour now continues to DC and Boston before returning to NYC for a Manhattan show at Bowery Ballroom. How was the Brooklyn show? We don't have the setlist, but you can see what he played at Coachella, and check out a few more pictures from MHOW, below...

The Tribeca Film Festival is readying itself for another week-long celebration of cinema next month. Screening from Thursday, April 18-29, the event will continue its customary beats, including a variety of talks ranging from a chronicle of Universal Studios with Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, and Judd Apatow to modern efforts in Avant-Garde film preservation, a gallery installation at New York Academy featuring winning artwork from the festival's jury competition, and family events including an ESPN-sponsored sports day and street fair. Or, if you're feeling limber, you even can attend a showing of "The Goonies" where you can compete in a no-holds-barred "Truffle Shuffle" dance contest. A full list of events can be found here.
Documenting the 150-year history of the Brooklyn Academy of Music, director Michael Sládek (Con Artist) compiles footage from the landmark venue's illustrious past performers in Bam150, including recent interviews with Laurie Anderson and performing arts authority Robert Wilson. The film turns to art history in articulating BAM's role in legitimzing Brooklyn as a modern "cultural Mecca."
Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey tells the story of 2006 Internet curio Arnel Pineda, a Manila native who rose to postmodern stardom via Youtube videos of his cover band's performances. While exposure launched him to ubiquity, it also brought him closer to the bands he emulated than most music video hit-mongers, landing him a singing gig as the successor to Steve Perry in Journey. The documentary follows Pineda from slum squalor to world-tour escapades, studying how he's dealt with the "demands of his newfound fame."
First Winter, the feature-length directorial debut of NYU film graduate Benjamin Dickinson (who's directed music videos for Q-Tip, LCD Soundsystem, and The Rapture) dares to ask what happens to a group of isolated Brooklyn hipsters during a stark blackout when the "sex, drugs, and acoustic guitars" grow dull and give way to tension that threatens their ability to survive the "apocalyptic" outage. Self-proclaimed hipster context aside, the film seems scant on ironic snark as the clan ernestly attempts to rough it in the frigid sticks.
Brooklyn rapper and producer John Forte, most known for his Grammy-winning record work with The Fugees' on The Score, is followed on his "From Brooklyn to Russia With Love Tour!" the first major undertaking of his multimedia company Le Castle in Russian Winter. Petter Ringbom's documentary captures one of the greater creative shifts of a musician reclaiming momentum after serving an 8-year prison prison sentence in the last decade, immersing himself in the sounds of distant culture as he remains dedicated to continuing the art fate gave him a second chance at publically making.
the PS22 Chorus (photo by Bao Nguyen)
Another Youtube phenomenon, the often-seen-on-BV PS22 Chorus, have their viral stardom explained in Once in a Lullaby: The PS22 Chorus Story. Focusing on their days leading up to their performance at the 2011 Academy Awards, chorus teacher Gregg Breinberg attempts to organize his students amid adolescent insecurities like homesickness, feeling left out, and the intevitable disorientation of instant fame. There will be a Q&A with Breinberg and director Jonathan Kalafer after the screening (which is also the film's world premiere).
Editors's note: Not only in the name of full disclosure, we're also proud to point out that BrooklynVegan contributed to the PS22 documentary in small ways whenever possible, including introducing the director (an old friend who happened to decide to take this project on) to BrooklynVegan photographer Bao Nguyen who you will notice is listed as one of the film's producers and Director of Photography. Go Bao!
The Zen of Bennett documents legendary crooner and all-around class-act Tony Bennett as he recorded his latest Duests compilation with the likes of Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin, and Amy Winehouse. Aside from a short monologue on the obscelence found in modern consumer culture that'll leave you "broke" (stating to have come from an era when "everything was made with quality") he riffs on that topic by simply saying that he hopes to bring that old-world standard of quality to his performances, which Bennett believes is ultimately what the public notices. If Zen gives him the chance to wax philsophic, modern cool should probably pay heed to the teachings from the Book of Bennett and learn a thing or two.

Santigold @ MHOW (more by Bao Nguyen)
Based on how fast her two Music Hall of Williamsburg shows sold out, I think it goes without saying that Santigold could play somewhere larger than Bowery Ballroom at this point, but that's exactly where she'll play on April 30th, probably so she can still play an album release show, but not one that competes too hard with her 6/23 appearance at Governors Ball.
Tickets for the 4/30 Bowery show go on sale Friday at noon. Her new album Master of My Make-Believe is out May 1st. On May 8th she kicks off a proper tour at the Troc in Philly (which hits Clifton Park too). All tour dates are listed, Coachella, Bonnaroo & Sasquatch (though not Lollapalooza yet) included, below...
Radiohead @ Roseland in 2011 (more by Bao Nguyen)
It's rumored that Radiohead will be announcing more dates soon. The latest rumor includes a June 1st show at Prudential Center in NJ, though I'm not going to believe it until I see it via Radiohead) (and not via Aids Bunny) (the previous rumor said there would be two nights at MSG around Bonnaroo, but now the rumor people are leaning towards the NJ show instead) (stay tuned).Well, the latest rumor happens to be true (nice one Aids Bunny!), but also includes a May 31 performance at the NJ venue. They also play Camden on June 13th (so 3 NJ shows total!). Tickets for the new dates go on sale via W.A.S.T.E this Thursday, March 8. A general onsale will hit Ticketmaster on Saturday, March 10 at 10AM. All dates are listed below...

Karen & Santi
Santigold, who is releasing her new album, Master of My Make-Believe, this spring on Downtown/Atlantic, performed material from it at her two sold out MHOW shows which happened last night (1/17) and Monday night (1/16). In a couple of days she leaves on tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
At last night's show, Karen O joined her on stage to perform the track "Go," which Karen guests on. It hasn't been confirmed that this song will definitely appear on the new album, but we do know that Karen's Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmate Nick Zinner will be on it. Dave Sitek (of TV on the Radio) is on the album too and was also spotted at last night's MHOW show. Other people, like Q-Tip, were at the show too. NY Times commented on the extravagancies of her show, saying:
Everywhere she went during her performance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, there they were: a pair of limber, stoical dancers, faces impassive behind sunglasses but with every other body part in constant and impeccable motion. At one point they wore tuxedo dresses; at another, Victorian tops with sharp shoulders paired with ruffled shorts that fluttered beautifully when they shimmied.But also spoke of an inconsistency in the performance:
Her stage show [...] has been inconsistent in the past. On Monday she was more robust if slightly absent compared with her colleagues: the magnificent dancers, worthy of their own hourlong performance, and her band, outfitted in shimmering tops and matching white headpieces. Often the songs took flight not through Santigold's voice or stage presence, but through what was unfolding around her.More pictures from the 1/17 show and some videos of new material from the 1/16 show are below.
The new album also features contributions from Switch (of Major Lazer), Greg Kurstin, and Buraka Som Sistema. She just released the video for the album's single, "Big Mouth," which was produced by Switch and Buraka Som Sistema. You can watch that below and grab the track for free at Santigold's website in exchange for your email address.

Adele @ Joe's Pub in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Adele's reps say:
Adele has been forced to cancel her upcoming 10 city sold-out tour of the U.S. due to a haemorrhage into her vocal chord. Vocal chord issues forced the British singer to postpone dates earlier this year as well. Adele has just wrapped up touring around the UK and was preparing to kick off her US tour on October 7 in Atlantic City, NJ when her illness reappeared (see below for full list of cancelled US tour dates). Renowned for her powerful live vocal performances, Adele has been advised by doctors that she'll need an extended rest period in order to begin to recuperate properly. Further details to follow regarding these cancelled dates. Refunds may be obtained at point of purchase.You can read a more personal letter along with a list of the cancelled dates and Adele's new video for "Someone Like You", below...

Radiohead @ Roseland last night (more by Bao Nguyen)
"The Occupy Wall Street protesters camped out in Lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park are buzzing over a big secret musical guest scheduled to play this afternoon at around 4pm. We hear that it's Radiohead, who are in New York for a couple concerts.What would Stephen Colbert think?
It makes sense: Radiohead's lead singer Thom Yorke has a history of lefty anti-globalization protest. What do you think: Are the millionaires from Radiohead authentic enough to be the bards of revolution?" [Gawker]
UPDATE: Gothamist says that "A spokesperson for Occupy Wall Street confirms "Radiohead will play a surprise show today at four in the afternoon. Press conference at one in the afternoon."
UPDATE 2: Occupy Wall Street says it's happening on their own website!
UPDATE 3: Radiohead spokesperson says NOT TRUE.
UPDATE 4: Occupy Wall Street claims they were hoaxed!

Ponytail @ Williamsburg Waterfront (more by Bao Nguyen)
"We regret to inform you that the wonder group known as Ponytail have officially called it a day. After releasing their amazing album "Do Whatever You Want All the Time" they were unable to make the touring portion come to life as the members have dispersed across the country in search of other life experiences. It's a bummer the world will never see Ponytail live again because it was truly honest music that filled you with extreme joy. An experience like that is rare these days and if you did see Ponytail live consider yourself lucky. Hopefully more bands will come along like Ponytail and shed light on the fakers.This message from the band comes just six months after they let everyone know that they did NOT break up. RIP Ponytail, sorry I'll never get to see you one more time.
Much love to the future."
Xoxo. Sir james winnie
One of those members they're referring to is Dustin Wong who happens to be playing a show at 285 Kent is Brooklyn tonight (9/22). His guitar playing skills are ace. Don't miss him. Dive and Heaven's Gate are both also on the bill.
