The Depreciation Guild @ The Bell House in January (more by Jonny Leather)
Depreciation Guild

Wolfmother (sort of) played the PNC Bank Arts Center in NJ with the Killers last night (9/2). The night before that it was at Jones Beach. Tomorrow it's Boston followed by Montreal and then Toronto. But tonight is a night off that they will spend at The Bowery Electric in NYC where they will go on after The Depreciation Guild who reportedly hit the stage at 10:30 PM.

For The Depreciation Guild, this is a warm up gig before they hit the road with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Cymbals Eat Guitars.

Wolfmother's new album Cosmic Egg is out October 13th via Interscope. All dates and an entertaining Wolfmother-album-promo video below...

the Dickies

PB: Which English bands inspired you?

Dickies guitarist Stan Lee: I liked The Damned and The Buzzcocks. I saw The Damned at the Starwood [LA] when there was about 14 people watching them. And I went 'Yeah - I'm going to start learning to play guitar'.

The Damned were supposed to play two upcoming NYC shows - one on New Years Eve, and one a day earlier. Now they are playing the Chance on December 30th, and only one NYC show (on New Years Eve) (tickets). The Dickies are also playing New Years in NYC...

Happy Punk New Year! Punknews is reporting that The Dickies have added a New Years Eve show at Bowery Electric (the bar co-owned by Jesse Malin) followed by an already-on-sale night of raucous rampaging at Southpaw on Jan 2nd. Bowery Electric details are scare, but assuming it's true, that means that New Year's Eve offers a PAIR of 70s punk pioneers to choose from... as we know that The Damned are set to blast off at Gramercy (as well as on Dec 30th).

an actual pizza box
Pizza Shop

The East Village rocker boys behind Bowery Electric, Jesse Malin and Johnny T, along with Kevin Cole (of Two Boots fame), have teamed up, all in the name of pizza. The rock 'n' roll trio is the force behind The Pizza Shop, located on Avenue A and 7th Street, which officially has its grand opening tonight [June 25, 2008]. The spot has been serving pizza since the 1960s, but the new owners decided to gussy up the space a bit......All the pizza boxes are limited edition prints. According to a press release we received: "Around 1500 of each box style is made and then never reproduced. The first one being a photo of The Clash from 1979 taken by world famous rock photographer Bob Gruen. Each box will have a different image created by well known and local artists featuring their particular style and medium and these boxes are free with a purchase of any pizza." As we mentioned earlier, tonight's the opening, so if you're in the hood, stop by for your very own signed Bob Gruen pizza box!" [PAPER]
Pizza Shop (an actual pizza place, not a club or bar) is right next door to Niagara, a bar that Jesse Malin also owns, and where you'll find the famous mural of The Clash's Joe Strummer on the outside wall.
