Aa

Earlier this year, Aa (Big A little a) returned with VoyAager, their first album since 2007. Now they've got a video for one of its tracks, "Koosh." The video was "inspired by Abel Gance's classic silent sensory overload Napoleon" and it fits the avant-synth track well. It makes its premiere in this post and can be watched below.

As discussed, Aa will also be part of Death by Audio's last-ever Halloween show. They play the "Haunted Mansion" section of the venue that will be set up special for this show with PC Worship's Justin Frye and Chat Logs. In the main room there will be sets from the re-active Knyfe Hyts, Oozing Wound, The Fucking Ocean, Red Dawn II and Alien Whale. $10 gets you in and it goes til 3 AM.

Video below...

Liturgy in 2009 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Liturgy

Black metal transcendentalists Liturgy are a full band again (beastly drummer Greg Fox included), and it's good news (and perhaps not a surprise) to hear they'll be playing Death by Audio before it closes. They're playing night 1 of their Thrill Jockey labelmates Oozing Wound's previously discussed two-night stand happening at the venue on Mischief Night (10/30) and Halloween (10/31). Also on that first night is Child Abuse and Cellular Chaos. $10 gets you in.

The 10/31 show is DbA's Halloween Haunted House Party and also features the re-active Knyfe Hyts, The Fucking Ocean, Red Dawn II and Alien Whale, plus in the "Haunted Mansion" there will be Aa, Justin Frye (of PC Worship) and Chat Logs. (Sounds spooky!) $10 gets you into this one too, and the show goes lateeee (til 3 AM).

White Lung at 4Knots 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
White Lung

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

White Lung, Mormon Crosses, Flykills @ Glasslands
White Lung continue to push punk's boundaries while keeping things quick and heavy on their new album, Deep Fantasy. Their live shows are only more intense.

Sun Araw's Blazer Double Double, Man Forever, Hiro Kone, Blazer Sound System @ Baby's All Right
Experimental musician Sun Araw plays his first of two shows of the week at Baby's All Right tonight. Strong support both nights too.

Potty Mouth, Aye Nako, Arm Candy @ Cake Shop
It's a good bill all around for scrappy, poppy punk at Cake Shop tonight with Massachusetts' Potty Mouth and two NYC bands, Aye Nako and Arm Candy.

What Cheer Brigade, Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Juiceboxxx @ Death By Audio
Providence street brass band What Cheer? Brigade headline this show that also features fun Baltimore drums-and-bass duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat, and a live-band incarnation of Juiceboxxx (who will also be celebrating his birthday tonight).

Slonk Donkerson, Le Rug, Vetter Kids, Sativa Cult @ Palisades
Good bill at Palisades tonight with local indie rock from Slonk Donkerson and Le Rug, and punk band Vetter Kids coming over from Texas.

Ovlov, Krill, Mannequin Pussy, Garcia Peoples @ Shea Stadium
Though this bill initially had Little Big League on it, they unfortunately dropped off. On the bright side, there's still plenty of quality indie rock from the rest of the bands.

Aa, Zula, Baked, Bueno @ Trans-Pecos
Aa put out their first new album in a while this year which is full of live-band-meets-electronics weirdness. Tonight they're joined by psych popsters Zula and indie rockers Baked and Bueno.

Dave Hill, Greg Barris, Larry Murphy @ Union Hall
Funny guy, occasional shirtless concertgoer and BV contributor Dave Hill will be recording his new comedy album tonight. Good luck, Dave! Sold out.

American Sharks, Blackout, Ice Balloons @ Saint Vitus
Tonight Vitus hosts stoner rock from American Sharks, art punk from the TVOTR-related Ice Balloons and more.

High Contrast, Dave Q, Raw Q, DJ Seoul @ Output
Welsh drum and bass DJ and producer High Contrast (real name Lincoln Barrett) burst onto the scene at the start of the '00s and almost instantly became the biggest thing to happen to the genre since Roni Size and Goldie. He's been going strong ever since, most recently on 2012's The Agony & the Ecstasy.

Aerosmith, Slash @ Prudential Center
Two rock giants come together at Prudential Center tonight. Prepare your air guitars.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Marnie Stern at 4Knots 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Marnie Stern

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power @ Webster Hall
After releasing one of the most classic indie albums of all time with In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, Neutral Milk Hotel pretty much disappeared with frontman Jeff Mangum choosing to remain mostly out of the public eye. A few years ago, Mangum began touring again, but it wasn't until late 2013 that Neutral Milk Hotel returned to the road. Their reunion tour finally came to NYC this week and this is the final night of their run.

Pixies, FIDLAR @ NJPAC
Pixies are moving forward without Kim Deal, having recently put out two new EPs and are now touring with fill-in bassist Paz Lenchantin. This show was supposed to happen last week (1/21) but was rescheduled for tonight. All tickets purchased for 1/21 will be honored.

Marnie Stern, Torres, Porches @ Baby's Alright
Marnie Stern always brings face-melting guitar playing and a funny on-stage persona to her shows, and she should be a different yet great match for Torres' confessional, grungy folk.

Janelle Monae @ Lehman College
One of the many shows happening in NYC this week in celebration of the upcoming Super Bowl is R&B boundary-pusher Janelle Monae. Expect some undeniable pop but someone who knows how to get weird too.

Aa, Yvette, Seven Teares, Rat Attack @ Death By Audio
Aa used to be regulars in the Brooklyn DIY scene, and though they had been quiet for a bit, they're now back with their first album since 2007, VoyAager, which is full of live-band-meets-electronics weirdness. Tonight they're joined by an equally experimental bill of local art rockers Yvette, Seven Teares (whose lineup includes Charlie Looker of Extra Life, Zs, Psalm Zero), and Rat Attack.

J. Cole @ The Theater at MSG
J. Cole may not have won the Grammy his song "Power Trip" was nominated for, but it's still a hell of a banger and some of his other stuff is pretty good too.

Luther Dickinson and The Wandering, Alvin Youngblood Hart @ Merkin Concert Hall
Part of the New York Guitar Festival, tonight North Mississipi All-Stars frontman Luther Dickinson brings his southern-fried style to soundtrack Walter Ruttman's 1927 documentary portrait of a Berlin long gone by, Berlin: Symphony of a Great City; while Alvin Youngblood Hart provides a score for Fatty Arbuckle comedy Out West.

Spires, Mainland, Lewis Lazar, Random Recipe @ Pianos
Do NYC shows ever cohere? Early on this bill are Montreal's patchouli-scented female duo Random Recipe; later it's poppy NYC rock band Mainland and superior locals Spires.

Bright Future, Elder/Brother, Dead Stars, The Everymen @ Glasslands
This is a bit of an odd bill, with electronic headliner Bright Future on an otherwise rock-y bill. We're partial to Dead Stars who mine '90s alt-pop (think Teenage Fanclub) with skill and hooks.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

"The new location is a pristine secluded beach area called Raptor Point, at the North end of the main (decommissioned) runway of the abandoned airport, right on Jamaica Bay. Gorgeous views of Jamaica Bay, Mill Basin, and of the distant Manhattan skyline; and a pretty phenomenal sunset spot." - Todd P

Oneida's Ocropolis @ ATP NY 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
Oneida

Started by Kid Millions and Bobby Matador of Oneida, People of the North is an ongoing but sporadic outgrowth of that restlessly experimental Brooklyn assemblage. Since the first tour in early 2003, POTn has served as another language emanating from the screaming mouth of the O. It has always included Kid and Bobby, and usually other members of Oneida as well. The entirety of Oneida has performed together under the POTn label at venues including the Frying Pan and the Mercury Lounge.

People of the North has provided compositions that have worked their way into Oneida's most cherished repertoire, including "Up with People" (from Happy New Year) and "Lavender" (from The Wedding).

While there are no clearly defined boundaries separating POTn from Oneida, it might be fair to say that the music tends to be more staunchly devoted to minimalism, repetition, improvisation, and sternness than the wide-ranging efforts of the big brother band.

Deep Tissue was recorded at the Ocropolis in early 2009, with the participation of much of the O. The sessions were deep, and the skies were gray." [Jagjaguwar]

People of the North's Deep Tissue was released by Jagjaguwar in April. There are four songs on the album. You can download one for free above.

Catch People of the North live Friday night at Bowery Ballroom where they'll be opening for Portishead side-project BEAK>. Tickets are still on sale. It's BEAK>'s only NYC appearance, and one of only four they're playing in the U.S. Another one is Saturday at ATP upstate. The other two are in California (and they're all listed below).

Not leaving town this weekend and can't make it to ATP? Todd P and friends present another reason to not feel so bad, and Oneida (who were a big part of ATP NY in 2009), are involved in that too. Oneida will headline a 17+ band lineup (that also includes Oneida side-project Man Forever) at Monster Island on Saturday. The "Monster Island Block Party" kicks off at 2pm and is free. Full lineup and more details with all Oneida and BEAK> dates, below...

Sam Mickens's Esctatic Showband & Revue @ Silent Barn
Sam Mickens

Brooklyn's new dance party, "Peoples Temple," here to wrecking-ball cultural doldrums and ignite the fires of tomorrow!

Debuting THURSDAY AUGUST 19TH and monthly thereafter, PEOPLES TEMPLE will inhabit the red-light interior of Williamsburg's most cracking young venue, Bruar Falls {245 Grand Ave.} marrying a raw and ecstatic dance party to varied but always thrilling musical guests. Hosted & selected by degenerate art maven Sam Mickens,(of The Dead Science, Ecstatic Showband & Revue, Xiu Xiu, Parenthetical Girls, et al.) PEOPLES TEMPLE will prove an exquisite night where folk from all walks of life can come to drink, dance, and co-exist in the spirit of ecstatic love.

Our grand opening, Aug. 19th will feature New York's most blazing young R & B chanteuse, Ms. Keesha Mishawn, presenting a full band set to shake the pillars of heaven. Hip Hop/R & B/Disco/Music of the 1980s/Ill Miscellaneous jams curated all night by Sam Mickens, the party runs 10pm-4 and is absolutely FREE.

Let's get it!
Sam Mickens

That letter from Sam pretty much speaks for itself. Still no word on the Sharon Jones-Sam Mickens "soul-off" though, but you can see Sam's Ecstatic Showband Revue again tonight (7/26), at Union Hall with Callers and People Get Ready.

Aa, Chat Logs, Sam Mickens's Ecstatic Showband and (the not-pictured) Island's Eyelids played a show Saturday night (7/24) at Silent Barn, which is where the pictures here were taken. More of them below...

Liturgy (more by Greg Cristman)
Liturgy

Liturgy has scheduled a tour send-off show on 1/15 at Death By Audio with White Mice, Little Women, and Weasel Walter's Cellular Chaos. The band will be back in NYC action on 2/18 at Don Pedro's with Aa, and then again on 3/6 at Glasslands with Naam.

Liturgy's support at Death By Audio, Weasel Walter's Cellular Chaos, will be reincarnated into another earthly form, that of Marc Edwards/Weasel Walter Group 16 days later. It is that form that will support An Albatross when they play Knitting Factory on 1/31 with Wharton Tiers Ensemble. Tickets are on sale.

So what is Cellular Chaos exactly, and what else has Weasel Walter been up to?

I have left California for New York. I quit XBXRX and joined Behold...The Arctopus. On the docket are my Septet record "Invasion" featuring Kaiser, Golia, John Lindberg, William Winant, Liz Allbee and Damon Smith; studio recordings by the Walter/Halvorson/Evans trio and the Marc Edwards/Weasel Walter Group as well as the new Burmese studio effort. I have reincarnated my west coast guitar freakout band Cellular Chaos on the East Coast with new players. A lot of writing for jazz quintet and tentet took place this year and I'll probably make an attempt to get that music played out here in New York with new musicians. This spring I'm planning on tours with the Forbes/Young/Walter trio as well as some European dates with Sheik Anorak and Mario Rechtern. There's an all-new Toy Killers release slowly in the works . . . I am also preparing to work on a very strange project spearheaded by the legendary Nondor Nevai, featuring myself on bass and Kenny Millions (aka Keshavan Maslak) on reeds - a truly volatile mixture of weirdos, should be extremely interesting. There's some talk about me contributing drums to some new Controlled Bleeding material as well. There are a lot of possibilities and I'm trying to figure out how to juggle them all and still remain solvent. Wish me luck.
That sounds like alot. Good luck.

PK-14 @ Glasslands
PK-14

Arriving late [to powerHouse Arena on November 5th] I found the place packed, but I was just able to set up in time to get Xiao He's last tune. This piece was a lengthy improv involving electronic looping, acoustic guitar, and Mongolian style throat-singing - all to bewitching effect. Next up were the catchily named Carsick Cars, a young and winsome trio who played just three songs, opening with the liberating 'You Can Listen You Can Talk' and closing with - reportedly a Chinese underground anthem - Zhong Nan Hai - a silly song about a popular cigarette brand that just happens to be named after the seat of Chinese Government. The point being, as I understand it, that being punk is being beyond politics. Lastly came P.K.14, apparently elder statesmen of the movement. Sporting a tight Swedish drummer, and singing in pure mandarin, one could discern a wide mix of influences from pop to punk, to post-punk, to freak-out rock. I've picked two tunes from them - the more melodic 'Eden' and the wild closer 'Some Surprises Happen Too Soon'. [Punkcast]
Punkcast was at the "China Underground Invasion" tour's kick off show on November 5th at powerHouse Arena. It was one of the four NYC shows for the tour that've already happened. Another was the next night (11/6) at Glasslands with These are Powers and Soft Circle. Pictures from the Glasslands show are above and below.

The trio of acts return to NYC on Friday, November 20th (TONIGHT) for a gig with The Octagon at UWS club Ding Dong Lounge with The Octagon. They follow that up with a tour-ending show at Secret Project Robot (NOT Monster Island Basement as originally listed in their dates) with Knyfe Hyts 81 and Aa on Saturday (Nov. 21). Knyfe Hyts 81 also have a show booked tonight in Manhattan with Sleigh Bells and Javelin.

Their label, Maybe Mars, lists one more stop for the gang. Guitarist Zhang Shouwang (from Carsick Cars) and Xiao He are slated to appear at the closing Performa 09 event, Scratch the Grand Finale at (Le) Poisson Rouge on November 22nd. But that isn't quite a conventional show - the fest writes that "invited artists will be asked to present a five to ten minute work responding to the following subtitles: Dining on Radio Waves; Lust is a Force; Between Noise & Silence; Songs for Architects; and Motion & Magic. The stage will be set with a arrangement of musical and Futurist inspired instrumentation and means from record decks, green light to perfume and the bassoon." Tickets are on sale.

Speaking of unconventional gigs, These Are Powers' next performance will be November 21st at Galapagos for a free edition (RSVP) of Cinema 16 (silent film+live band). For their set, the group will be scoring a pair of PSAs and one educational video from the '60s and '70s. Included in those will be "One Got Fat: Bicycle Safety" from 1963, summarized as such: "A group of children, wearing ape masks, the dangers of biking the hard way in this strange and dark PSA."

You Are Here

On Saturday, July 25th, there'll be a 12-hour benefit at Death By Audio for You Are Here: A Maze, a "performance festival in a sculptural maze" to happen at the venue from September 10th - October 2nd. Both the event and the project are being put on by Trouble (Zs' Sam Hillmer and artist Laura Paris).

The lineup includes performances by Ninjasonik, Aa, Dead Science's Sam Mickens, Charlie Looker of Extra Life, and Hillmer himself (with Regattas). A DJ set by Dirty Projector Dave Longstreth is also on the schedule (for some actual singing by Longstreth, that takes place at the Williamsburg Waterfront this Sunday).

A full schedule of performers, with some info on the You Are Here project, is below...

Born to Run

AT 9 o'clock on a recent morning Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were already half an hour into a rehearsal at the rock club Terminal 5 in Manhattan. As N.F.L. executives and a television production team watched, they were tightening their miniset of four songs -- dropping verses, streamlining segues -- to fit their 12-minute slot as the halftime entertainment Sunday at Super Bowl XLIII, expected to reach tens of millions of viewers.

"My take on the Super Bowl?" Mr. Springsteen said after rehearsal. "Fundamentally it's a 12-minute party."

Few musicians anywhere consummate symbolic occasions and mass events better than Mr. Springsteen. He's used to working on a stadium scale, and for decades his concerts have been nonstop singalongs that perfectly embody the yearning for community in his lyrics. In an era when pop hits can be as ephemeral as a deleted MP3 file, Mr. Springsteen has spent much of his career laboring to write durable songs about American dreams, from "Born to Run" to "Promised Land." [NY Times]

UPDATE: "The already terrific musical line up gets even better with the addition of Aa (BIG A little a), Bunnybrains, Crystal Stilts, Hex Message and Woods, all slated for performances at the festival's second stage"
