Asbury Park, NJ venue Asbury Lanes had a party on Saturday (10/3) which will be their last event until this coming spring (tentatively). The venue is now closed for renovations, which they announced in a Facebook post that also mentioned the cancellation of the Waxahatchee show that would have happened on 10/10. The venue writes:
Sadly, our show with Waxahatchee has to be cancelled...Our renovation schedule for the Lanes got moved up to October 5th, so, we don't want anyone to have to risk life and limb to come to a construction site to see a show...Even know we know that Waxahatchee would make it a wonderful experience nonetheless...We apologize for this.If you bought tickets, you can get a refund from your point or purchase. Go to NYC and see them open for Kurt Vile...We hope you will forgive us!App.com adds:
After Saturday, the "approval and renovation process" will begin, said Brian Cheripka, senior vice president the development for iStar, the owner of Asbury Lanes, via email. "The renovations will be completed in phases, with the exterior improvements taking place over the next several months"As the Lanes' announcement points out, you can see Waxahatchee on their tour with Kurt Vile, which hits NYC this week on Tuesday (10/6) and Wednesday (10/7) at Webster Hall. Both shows are sold out.
The renovations are expected to last into the spring. iStar will share their initial plans with the city in the coming weeks and those plans include keeping live music at the venue.
"We're committed to keeping it an iconic music venue," Cheripka said.
Bouncing Souls at Highline Ballroom in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Over the summer, New Brunswick punk vets The Bouncing Souls parted ways with drummer Michael McDermott (their second drummer), and they'll be revealing Michael's replacement today (9/26). They're doing it in style of course, by playing an intimate hometown show at Asbury Lanes TONIGHT (9/26) and to find out who the new guy is... well you just have to go the show and see for yourself. Admission is $10 at the door and it's all ages. Flyer below.
UPDATE: It's been revealed that the new drummer is George Rebelo of Hot Water Music (and briefly of Against Me!).
This is one of two intimate NY/NJ shows the band is doing in the span of a week, as they're headlining our BrooklynVegan-curated Red Bull Sound Select show on Monday (9/30) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon, and two punky Brooklyn bands as openers: Aye Nako and Nude Beach.

Chuck D on stage with Portishead @ ATP
Portishead completed their NYC & NJ adventure with a 2nd show at Hammerstein Ballroom last night (10/5), and an appearance on Fallon where they performed two songs. On air they played "Chase The Tear" which they first released in 2009 to help raise money for Amnesty International. Jimmy pointed out that you can get a new release of that single exclusively at the XL Records table at the
Brooklyn Flea Brooklyn Flea's Independent Label Market this weekend. They also played 1994 song "Mysterons" at Fallon as a web exclusive. And much to the chagrin of the groaning tourists who were trapped in their seats at the show's taping yesterday, the band actually played "Mysterons" in full twice because apparently something went wrong the first time around. You can watch the version they kept, and what aired on TV, below.
Also in this post is a set of pictures (including the setlist) from Portishead's Sunday set at ATP I'll Be Your Mirror in Asbury Park. As mentioned in the post of pictures from their Saturday show, Chuck D joined the band on stage during "Machine Gun" on Sunday. As not mentioned, Simeon from Silver Apples joined them on "We Carry On" to help close the show. Chuck D video HERE. Simeon video below.

Islands @ Bell House in August (more by Anna Scialli)
Tonight (9/22) Islands are playing a special all-ages record release show for their new album, Vapours (out today on Anti-), at Asbury Park, NJ's Asbury Lanes. Other bands on the bill inlcude Birthwater, Montagna & the Mouth to Mouth and DJ meatnmore.
The band's upcoming tour dates, of which there are many, include two NYC stops. The first is October 9th at Roseland Ballroom on their tour with Happy Mondays and Psychedelic Furs. The second is November 5th at Bowery Ballroom on their tour with Jemina Pearl. Tickets for both Roseland and Bowery are still available.
Diamonds & Co. paid a visit to Brooklyn's Bell House on August 19th...
People apparently love these guys, and why not: Diamonds has a swooning, falsetto-prone voice well suited to the music's hokey surrealism, which gains force the louder the drums get, the faster the tempo gets -- the less they sound like Squeeze, and the more they sound like Franz Ferdinand, the better. Most of the set is given over to debuting tunes from Vapours, out next month, featuring Nick's reunion with once-departed cofounder Jamie Thompson: "Everything Is Under Control" is a very pretty closing falsetto jam, precisely because you don't know whether to take Nick at his word or not. We appreciate the confusion. [Rob Harvilla, Village Voice]All dates are below...
