Stars of the Lid @ Brainwaves 2008 (Doug Orleans)
"Thanks to everyone who performed, volunteered, worked, attended, and donated. It was an awesome time and we hope to start linking to people's photographs and reviews of it soon from the brain-waves.org Web site.Stars of the Lid played two shows at (le) poisson rouge in NYC before heading up to the Boston-area for Brainwaves over the weekend. Chocolate Bobka said, " A heavy combo of ethereal arrangements and intergalactic visualizations made me doze off a few times, but in the best way possible." Hooves on the Turf said, says they "played with a fantastic string quartet."
We have some merch left over that we want to share:
3xCD set - 29 songs of all exclusive material from Brainwaves performers and friends of Brainwashed (limited to 500 copies).
Shirts - these are heavy cotton Fruit of the Loom shirts (not those flimsy other brands) available in S, M, L, and XL (these shirts are extremely limited)" [Brainwashed]
Silver Apples played Brainwaves too, and then on Saturday night joined Grails, both as their opener and as part of their band for great sets at Knitting Factory in NY. Silver Apples' next show is at The Kitchen.
Also on the bill Friday night at Brainwaves: Meat Beat Manifesto, who played a NYC show a couple of days earlier.
Kranky label-mates To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie and Boduf Songs were both at Brainwaves and will next play a show in NYC, at Pianos, tonight, Tuesday November 25th. They also have a show coming up at the Annex. More details and dates HERE.

To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie
To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie consists of Jehna Wilhelm, guitar and vocals, and Mark McGee, electronics and sound manipulation. Originally from Richmond, VA, the duo has been involved with this project for 4 years and has been supported by an ever-changing cast of players and musicians. They now reside in Minneapolis, MN where they run their own label, The Riley Bushman Recordings & Archives, which they use as an outlet to release various projects and collaborations. [Kranky]Kranky label-mates To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie and Boduf Songs (aka Mat Sweet, who lives in Southampton England) are going on a tour together that kicks off at this weekend's Brainwaves Festival in Boston.
"Capping the weekend is a day-long tribute to Kranky, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the label, which is home to avant-garde rockers like Deerhunter and ambient pioneers Stars of the Lid. "For Kranky, we've got a whole day planned. Windy [of Windy & Carl] and Thomas Meluch [of Benoit Pioulard] will perform together," he says. "Stars of the Lid will headline, Lichens, Nudge and Strategy will leave the crowd stunned, and we'll get a rare glimpse of To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie and Boduf Songs live. Unfortunately we failed to pull off Out Hud, Labradford, Godspeed You Black Emperor and Bowery Electric reunions, but we did try."" [Weekly Dig]NYC can also get a rare glimpse of TKAPB and Boduf live, TWICE. The first show is Tuesday, November 25th at Pianos. The next one is that Friday in the same LES neighborhood, at The Annex.
