Trippple Nippples @ 285 Kent
For those who felt that one New Year's Eve wasn't quite enough, Todd P offered a second chance to fulfill your New Year's wishes with a late show at 285 Kent that counted down to 3AM. Headlined by DIVE (who played earlier that night too), the Friends-filled show included a set by Trippple Nippples, the Japan art-rock crew who closes their NYC run with a show TONIGHT. The band will team with Guardian Alien, Hard Nips, Bad Credit/No Credit and a suprise guest for the show at Shea Stadium tonight (1/3). $7 gets you in.
More (slightly NSFW) (are pasties NSFW?) pictures from that late night DIVE/Trippple Nippples show on (technically) New Year's Day are below....

And it's the second holiday party in NYC during the past week for Widowspeak who just played a dreamy set at the BV Holiday Party at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday with Twin Sister and Ava Luna. To keep in the holiday spirit, Widowspeak did a cover of The Wailers' "She's Coming Home" during their set. Maybe you can hear that again tonight. Some pictures from from Bowery are in this post.
Speaking of The Babies and Real Estate, they're going on an east coast tour together in January. That tour doesn't include any NYC dates yet, but it kicks off the day after Real Estate plays Terminal 5 with Girls and King Krule (1/14). Tickets for that show are still available.
All dates, pictures and show info below...
AraabMuzik at Moogfest in October (more by Diana Wong)
When Altered Zones announced last month that they would no longer be operating, editors Ric Leichtung and Emilie Friedlander also announced a new project, AdHoc.fm, which will be "a 100% independent, daily music and visual culture publication" and is "coming in 2012."
Ad Hoc are throwing a New Year's Eve party at 285 Kent (12/31) with sets by AraabMuzik, Balam Acab, Light Asylum, Laurel Halo, Run DMT, a special guest, and Weird Magic DJs. Tickets for the show are on sale now. More details and dates are below.
Laurel Halo will also be DJing in NYC on New Year's Eve at Zebulon with DJ Hiro Kone and a band TBA. They'll be spinning "Italo Disco, House, Soul, Techno, Postpunk; whatever makes you move."
Another similar electronic-filled NYE option is the Nosaj Thing show at Glasslands (12/31). When we first discussed the show, no openers had been announced yet. We now know that the bill also includes El Topo (aka Dave Harrington of Nicolas Jaar's Darkside project), Archie Pelago, and DJIlirjana (Pop Manifesto/Typical Girls). Tickets are still available.
Speaking of AraabMuzik, he released the deluxe edition to his album Electronic Dream last week. The album features six new tracks, including the Deadmau5-sampling "I Remember," which you can stream below. We recently spoke to Gang Gang Dance engineer Sean Maffucci who is in New Moods, and he said "I don't think I've heard a record like this before. It seems to break every production rule and yet sounds so sweet and pleasing to the ears."
That stream, NYE show details and more AraabMuzik dates, below...

Some recent Total Control cover art
Australian synth-punks Total Control are currently on tour with Thee Oh Sees, where they'll be in Texas for the Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend, and then touring the rest of the country, with two stops in NYC: November 17 at 285 Kent and November 18 at Le Poisson Rouge. (For ticket links, click the dates.) All Oh Sees/Total Control tour dates are at the bottom of this post.
Although their web presence is minimal and enigmatic, Total Control's lineage is not: Daniel Young is in Straightjacket Nation, and Mikey Young spends time in Eddy Current Suppression Ring and both are also in UV Race. (Fellow UV Racer Alistair Montfort, plus Zephyr Pavey and James Vinciguerra round out the live line-up.) After a string of 7"s the band released Henge Beat back in August, a real corker of a debut album. It divides its time between motorik synth workouts, jittery post-punk and more Eddy Current style stormers, with a nice layer of repetition repetition repetition coating the whole shebang. You can stream one of the album tracks at the bottom of this post.
Thee Oh Sees' Carrion Crawler / The Dream
Most recently, Total Control released a split 12" with their current tourmates Thee Oh Sees on John Dwyer's Castle Face label which is worth picking up too. It is probably no surprise to learn that there's another Oh Sees album on the way, Carrion Crawler / The Dream, due November 15 on In the Red. Recorded live to tape over a few days this past June, it's a return to the more familiar Oh Sees sound after the demented psych folk that was Castlemania which came out back in May. You can download the two tracks that make up the album title at the top of this post.
Don't forget, this current line-up of Thee Oh Sees features Lars Finberg of The Intelligence and recent, well-deserved recipient of The Stranger's Genius Award for Music. Not that you need any more reasons to go to either (or both) of these shows.
Oh Sees / Total Control tour dates and a Total Control audio stream are below.

Luis Vasquez (better know as Captured Tracks' Soft Moon) played a pair of NYC shows this past week due to the cancellation of their dates with Mogwai. Saturday night saw Soft Moon perform at 285 Kent Ave with White Ring and Beige, while Wednesday (10/5) they hit Home Sweet Home. The shows were a primer for Soft Moon's forthcoming Total Decay EP due on Halloween. One of the songs was recently blessed with Pitchfork's "Best New Track". How were the NYC shows?
Here are some pictures from 285 Kent. More of them below...
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.

Tickets went on on various presales for My Morning Jacket/Band of Horses today.
They describe it like this:
LiveMusicVideo Theatre Company will present BjorkBall, The Unofficial Biophilia CD Release Party: a Bjork-inspired multimedia retrospective celebration and dance party, at 285 KENT in Williamsburg, BK on Thursday, September 29th, 2011 at 7:00PM.Biophilia was supposed to be out that same week, but the release date has been pushed back to October 10th (UK) /11th (US). Get the app now though.
BjorkBall is a one-night-only event completely inspired by the life and work of Björk, and triggered especially by the jaw-dropping multimedia presentation of the upcoming release of Biophilia, her newest musical project and forthcoming full-length studio album. BjorkBall is a PARTY you won't want to miss; a costume ball; a DJ dance hall; a multimedia performance art retrospective of Björk's work featuring live performances that pop up throughout the evening, created specifically to represent one song from each of Björk's former albums and culminating in a large fashion installation inspired by the newest, Biophilia. Amidst Björk-inspired, interactive installations, DJs spinning sick remixes, and a party atmosphere where people are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Björk incarnation, the larger pop-up performances will span the mediums of dance, video, projection, fashion, song, and more - a stimulating collision of the visual and the aural combining to make a massive, celebratory night in honor of music, dance, art, life, and... well, Björk!
Contributing artists include SOTU Productions, Natalie Johns (former Bjorkestra front-woman), Bluecrash Event Director, TAJ Dance, DJ Narcisse, Built4Collapse Theatre Company, and many more.
LiveMusicVideo (Stephen F. Arnoczy and Liz Alderfer) seeks to create a tangential music experience through the deconstruction and re-imagining of the art form of the music video. BjorkBall will be the inaugural evening-length event presented by LiveMusicVideo, founded in 2010.
BjorkBall will begin at 7:00PM. Tickets, priced at $10, are available for advanced purchase at http://bjorkball.eventbrite.com/ or at the door on the evening of the event.

Tickets are on sale, as well as available at Desert Island Bookstore.

More show details and the Brooklyn show flyer is below.
"felt like i was gonna die from both heat stroke and excitement many times during @pictureplane at 285 kent last night" - Emmi Lichtenberg
"pictureplane 285 kent the hottest show of my 40 years earthly existence..
the good hot" - Steven Read
"Best out to Todd P, 285 Kent, Teengirl Fantasy & Pictureplane for helping me sweat out all those toxins, I had a good time" - Brandon Ynocencio
Pictureplane at 285 Kent (via Steven Read)
Pictureplane played 285 Kent on Saturday (7/23) as part of his tour with Teengirl Fantasy. The show was the album release party for Thee Physical, which was available as a cassette. Despite Todd P's valiant efforts to provide A/C at 285 Kent, they weren't able to cool down the extremely hot venue. Todd P retweeted Mookie Singerman of Lovepump Records (home of Pictureplane) who said, "AC IS ON AT 285 KENT!!! WATERSHED MOMENT IN DIY TODD P HISTORY." with the added, "Somebody spoke too soon!" And they did. Pictureplane said the show "was a high point in my 'career' as a performer. I didn't know my body could sweat like that." Those in attendance (tweets above) suffered the heat too, but feedback was still positive as ever.
I wonder what the A/C situation will be at 285 Kent tonight (7/26) for the Silent Barn Benefit. with Bomb the Music Industry and secret guests.
There are a few more dates on the Pictureplane/Teengirl Fantasy tour which culminates at the end of the month in Buffalo, NY. Each artist will also play their own Warm Up show at PS1 in August. Pictureplane's is on August 20, after he finishes a tour with Javelin. The PS1 bill also includes Juan Maclean, Blood Orange, Solange, Grimes, and Ford & Lopatin (DJ). After that, Pictureplane will play two more NYC shows. The first is on September 1 at Cameo Gallery. Lineup and ticket info coming soon. He'll then play a Jelly RockBeach show on September 3 with Wise Blood and others.
Pictureplane's tour with Javelin doesn't hit the east coast at all, but Javelin play their own NYC show at 285 Kent on September 17.
Updated dates below...
As if it wasn't warm enough, the lineup of today's OUTDOOR PS1 Warm Up party is:
Gang Gang Dance (DJ set) / 4AD / New York, NYWarm Up runs from 2 PM to 9 PM at PS1 in Long Island City. Admission is $15 and includes access to all exhibitions in addition to the dance party
Lunice / Lucky Me / Montreal, Canada
Syd tha Kyd / OFWGKTA / Los Angeles, CA
Miracles Club / Ecstacy Records / Portland, OR
Laurel Halo / Hippos in Tanks / New York, NY
How was Lunice at Bowery Hotel last night. he played with Pictureplane and Teengirl Fantasy who both DJ'd. They both play live at 285 Kent tonight where the DIY venue will [hopefully] be sporting 64000 btu-worth of new air conditioners.
UPDATE: Todd P says he isn't guaranteeing the A/C will work in time for tonight's show, or that even once installed it will work as planned. Hope for the best, but be prepared to sweat!

Javelin at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Chris La Putt)
We recently mentioned that Mount Eerie will play September 26 at Le Poisson Rouge (tickets). He's since announced a Brooklyn show happening a few days earlier on September 21 at 285 Kent Ave. Still no full tour announcement.
Javelin will also play 285 Kent, but on September 17, after finishing up a short West Coast tour in August with Hollagramz and Pictureplane, whose Brooklyn show with Teengirl Fantasy and Gatekeeper was just moved to 285 Kent.
The Javelin/Pictureplane/Hollagramz West Coast tour intersects with the previously announced Tri Angle tour on August 16 at Echoplex in LA. That tour was scheduled to have Holy Other, oOoOO and Tri Angle DJs, though due to health issues Holy Other has had to cancel his US shows, Mercury Lounge and PS1 included. A message on Tri Angle's site reads:
"We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but regretfully it's our job to announce that Holy Other has had to cancel all of his upcoming US dates due to ill health. Holy Other is still planning on playing shows in the US in the foreseeable future, but circumstance has unfortunately made it impossible for Holy Other to fulfill the shows he had scheduled for July / August. Consequently Tri Angle DJs have also had to pull out from the forthcoming shows. oOoOO will still be playing, and a suitable replacement support act is currently being figured out. We hope you understand. Thanks."oOoOO plays NYC (without Holy Other) on August 11 at Mercury Lounge and August 13 at PS1 with Tri Angle labelmates Clams Casino, Ayshay, and Water Borders. Tickets for the Mercury show are still on sale and advanced tickets for the PS1 show are available at locations listed below.

Coco66 in October 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
As mentioned, Coco66 was shut down on July 9 so SBTRKT couldn't DJ after his PS1 show. We also recently mentioned that the July 23rd Pictureplane, Teengirl Fantasy, Gatekeeper show originally scheduled at Coco66 has been moved to 285 Kent. That's because Coco66 never reopened after the SBTRKT incident...
It seems that Greenpoint music venue and bar Coco66 was raided by both the NYPD and SLA for operating without a liquor license last weekend. According to reports at Paper and New York Shitty, the authorities showed up at some point Saturday night and arrested the venue's owner David Kelleran and in a scene out of prohibition, all of the booze was destroyed by the SLA when they made the bartenders pour out every last drop of about $20,000 worth of alcohol. What a waste! The bar's problems began in October, 2010 when the NYPD conducted an initial raid and lost its liquor license. Kelleran had been buying booze at retail shops for the bar's events and apparently wants to try to reopen the bar without a liquor license. [Eater]No events are currently scheduled at Coco66.
