Not long ago, we mentioned that NYC street punk vets The Casualties have a NJ show with D.R.I. happening 5/31 at Starland (tickets), and it turns out that show is part of a longer tour for The Casualties. It also includes a Brooklyn show happening June 5 at Acheron with I.R.A., Iron Force and Agitator. Tickets are on sale now. All dates, including a Long Island show, another NJ show, and a Spain festival with Bad Religion and Jello Biafra, are listed below.
That's not the only old school punk show happening in NYC in the next few months. Agent Orange (or at least frontman Mike Palm and the newer members he's playing with now) recently announced a Brooklyn show to take place May 14 at Saint Vitus with In the Whale. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Two days earlier at Saint Vitus (5/12) is Punk Rock Karaoke with members of Social Distortion, the Adolescents, Bad Religion, Circle Jerks and The Dickies (tickets). That's the same lineup doing the karaoke pre-party for Atlanta's Wrecking Ball fest in August. And that fest has its own dose of old school punk from Descendents and Judge.
Judge also shared a member with Gorilla Biscuits, whose guitarist Walter Schreifels plays NYC soon with his garage/psych band Dead Heavens. They would have played Vitus last night (4/16) but that was cancelled, but they have two Bowery Electric shows: May 14 with Slonk Donkerson and May 21 with Slavve. Tickets for both are still available.
Judge also featured members of Youth of Today, who also had a member in Into Another, who put out their Omens EP this week, their first release since the '90s. You can pick yours up here and listen to an Rdio stream of it below.
And a few previously-mentioned NYC shows in this realm: Black N' Blue Bowl happens in May with Burn, Crumbsuckers, Sick Of It All, Madball, Dave Smalley, The Regulators (mems Bad Brains/Cro-Mags) and more.
Former Misfit Doyle will be here soon too.
The Weirdos in 2014 (photo by Geoff Moore)
Two West Coast punk veterans, Adolescents and The Weirdos, will be hitting the road together this June. Their trek includes a NYC show on June 26 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/10) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
Adolescents have been around pretty consistently in one form or another for a while now, having played NYC not long ago opening for Subhumans. They're still led by founding vocalist Tony Cadena and founding bassist Steve Soto, who were both on their classic 1981 self-titled debut, but the rest of the band joined on in recent years.
The Weirdos, meanwhile, briefly reunited in 2004-2005 and then again starting in 2013, and as far as we can tell this is their first time in NYC since that '04 reunion. They're also still with their two constant members, vocalist John Denny and guitarist Dix Denney, who were both there for their initial run as a band (1977-1981, which only produced singles and EPs) as well as for their 1990 reunion (and only) full length album, Condor.
Listen to some classics from both bands, with the list of dates, below...

In other Ramones news, CJ Ramone, who played bass in the Ramones from 1989 to 1996, has signed to Fat Wreck Chords who will release his new single on September 30 with a full length titled Last Chance To Dance to follow. He was joined by other punk rock royalty to record it too: like on his 2012 solo debut, his band includes Adolescents members Dan Root and Steve Soto and Social Distortion member David Hidalgo Jr. Plus, the single's b-side is a cover of Black Flag's "Rise Above" which features former Black Flag member and current Misfits member Dez Cadena on guitar and backing vocals. The a-side is an original song, "Understand Me?" which is streaming below. CJ is also touring Brazil later this month into September. All of those dates are listed below as well.

As mentioned, White Fence's new album, Cyclops Reap, is out this week on John Dwyer's Castle Face label. Tim Presley doesn't seem to be running out of songs and this is another quality batch of paisley-scented psychedelia.

Bon Iver recorded an iTunes session at East West studios which is available exclusively from iTunes starting today.

Speaking of Bjork, she's teaming up with the New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Children's Museum of Manhattan to create interactive educational programs for middle school-aged students based on her Biophilia app. Speaking about the program, Bjork said:
"It's not a bookish thing. You cannot learn to make music from a book." "I love books; they're like the best ever," she added. "There are things you can only learn from books, but it's also important to introduce the physical aspects. So for me, it was very important to make, somehow, music education that was physical." (via NY Daily News)Both Bon Iver and Bjork are set to play Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway this summer (Aug 7-11) with The Stone Roses, Refused, The Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould (performing Copper Blue), Chromatics, Cloud Nothings, John Maus, Purity Ring, Saint Etienne, SBTRKT, Screaming Females, St. Vincent, and more. Full list below.
