Bouncing Souls at Highline Ballroom in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Bouncing Souls

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. Doors for the MHOW show open at 6:30 PM and the music starts at 8. Like all RBSS shows, admission is $3 at the door. First come, first served.

Bouncing Souls' other upcoming dates include Reading, PA's East Coast Tsunami Fest on Friday (9/27) and Gainesville, FL's The Fest in late October. All dates are listed, along with the flyer for the Asbury Lanes show, below...

Chuck D on stage with Portishead @ ATP
Portishead

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.

Silver Apples plays Public Assembly in Brooklyn TONIGHT (10/6).

Portishead associate Anika plays Glasslands tonight.

Portishead's Adrian Utley visited Criterion Cinema while in town, and is involved in a show happening in NYC on 10/29.

D.O.A. @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 2008 (more)
DOA

Legendary hardcore punk band D.O.A., whose new album Talk Minus Action Equals Zero was released on May, are on tour with hardcore legends Negative Approach. Both bands can be found at Asbury Lanes in NJ tonight (6/18) (flyer below), in Boston on Saturday night, and then at the free Punk Island fest happening on Governors Island on Sunday (June 20). As previously mentioned...

Punk Island returns for a third year in 2010, with more than 130 of the country's loudest bands transforming the ordinarily quiet Governors Island into a daylong punk/hardcore paradise.

Bands will perform on 18 stages scattered around the island, as free ferries transport revelers from Lower Manhattan and DUMBO to Governors Island every half hour, beginning at 10am.

Because Governors Island is closed on the day of Make Music New York, Punk Island will take place the day before, on Sunday, June 20th. Just like the rest of MMNY, all performances are outdoors and completely free.

Ferry info and more HERE.

After Punk Island, D.O.A. continues on tour without Negative Approach who will be back in NYC in August. All DOA dates below...

Islands @ Bell House in August (more by Anna Scialli)
Islands

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]
