Those Darlins

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, who will release their Jim-Eno-produced-LP Scandalous on March 15th, will hit the road for a US tour in late March with Those Darlins, kicking off on 3/22 in Atlanta and closing down shop on the West Coast at the now sold-out Coachella (not to be confused with Bro-chella). Bowery Ballroom gets the look, and twice, as the bands will play the venue on March 25th and 26th. Tickets are still available for both shows (3/25, 3/26).

For Those Darlins, the Black Joe Lewis dates are a cakewalk- the band is currently on tour and have multiple dates from coast to coast before and after those dates well into the spring and including SXSW. All of the dates are in preparation for a pair of releases via the OH WOW DANG label: a new 7-inch due on 2/1 ("Be Your Bro" b/w "Let You Down" -- cover art below) and their second full-length Screws Get Loose due on 3/29.

All Black Joe Lewis and Those Darlins dates, together and separately, are below.

Happy Holidays! I take on more than I can handle. That results in a lot of unposted content. In the name of catching up, while also taking it easy during this final week of the year, here's some of that lost material.

The 2nd Annual Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco this past August benefited from a combination of improved planning and the luck of some of the nicest weather the city had seen all summer. The result was a far more pleasant and exciting experience for festivalgoers at this food, wine and music extravaganza.

The venue for the festival is extraordinary, taking up about a third of the massive Golden Gate Park. Once inside, it's hard to believe you're in the middle of a large city. Giant trees and grassy meadows block out any view of outside buildings, and the festival is arranged around the topography so that each group of stages has its own unique look and feel. There were many secluded areas and empty meadows nearby for those in need of respite from the music. Thanks to the efforts of innovative organizers, Outside Lands truly becomes a world unto itself.

The 2009 Outside Lands Festival ran August 28th to August 30th in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Acts that the played the fest's first day included Tom Jones, Akron Family, Q-Tip, The Dodos, Built to Spill, the National, Los Campesinos! and healdiners Pearl Jam. Pictures for Autolux, who also played, are HERE. More pictures from Day One are below...

New York Dolls

"The New York Dolls -- the two original dudes with the good fortune to still be alive, plus three sonically and sartorially like-minded newer recruits to replace those original members who were much less fortunate -- will take no offense if you prefer the thrillingly brash, iconic garage-punk version of "Trash" that appeared on their 1973 self-titled debut to the slowed-down, hammed-up ska remake that graces this spring's Cause I Sez So, their second reunion album, which vacillates between the thrilling garage-punk that made them famous and stranger, more disquieting flights of fancy like, say, doing a ska remake of one of their most famous songs. Tonight they mash both versions together into one unwieldy but energetic beast, our two survivors --cuddly guitarist Sylvain Sylvain and lithe, lascivious Lou Reed/Gumby hybrid frontman David Johansen -- prancing nonchalantly about, the guitars roaring quasi-melodically as usual, and this whole thing continues, against all odds and to their infinite credit, to not feel like a travesty."

NY Dolls continued their North American tour last night (June 22nd) at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Many of the gigs on their tour, including MHOW and the one they played two nights earlier at Starland Ballroom, have been opened by Austin's Black Joe Lewis.
Miami New Times: How did you get on the New York Dolls tour? Did you have any contact with them before?

Black Joes Lewis: I don't know, I have no idea. My manager was like, Y'all wanna do this tour? I don't know if they requested us, or if it was some industry thing they pull with agents around the country. I think it'll go good because I'm a big fan of the 1970s punk rock stuff, like the Dead Boys, and the Stooges, Radio Birdman, that kind of shit. I love that music. A lot of my guitar playing is based loosely on those styles.

Both bands continue for another week, before NY Dolls head to Europe for a run of summer, mostly festival, shows. All tour dates and more pictures from MHOW (including one of the Dolls' setlist), below...
