You may remember the web series Breakfast at Sulimay's where senior citizens critiqued current bands. Stereogum reports the sad news that Joe Walker, who provided many of the show's best zingers, died on March 22 at age 90. Joe was a WWII veteran (who fought in the Battle of the Bulge) who later worked for the City of Philadelphia and was an actor as well. Joe, you'll be missed.

Watch a Scrapple TV tribute to Joe and a few classic Breakfast at Sulimay's, below...

Awesome Color and Tyvek's tour together (which includes SXSW) comes to Market Hotel for a show with Talk Normal (who'll be at SXSW too) and CSC Funk Band. Talk Normal goes on tour with Xiu Xiu and Tune-Yards after that.

Little Women are a twisted, beyond-energetic jazz quartet that's putting their first full-length, Throat, out April 13th on Aum Fidelity. (((unartig))) recently put together a video retrospective on the group. They play Death By Audio tonight with Ryan Power, Buke and Gass and Sam Mickens.

"The sound awards usually go to the loudest movies, which mean "Avatar" or "The Hurt Locker" this year. "Avatar" may have the edge because this category favors blockbusters like past winners "The Dark Knight" and "King Kong." But I'm betting on "Hurt Locker" here for two reasons. There's a lot of love for this film and voters will want to spread it around. Secondly, it probably strikes voters as the loudest film because it's about bombs going off (or not going off). Recent winner in this category was another war movie up for best picture, "Letters From Iwo Jima."" [LA Times]

RJD2 hits Highline Ballroom tonight. While in Philly he was interviewed by Joe Walker of Breakfast at Sulimay's. Check that out below...

Kurt Vile on WFMU @ UCB - Oct 7, 2009 (notladj)
Kurt Vile

"Kurt opened the night with two solo numbers that haven't appeared on any record, to my knowledge. I recognized "Peeping Tomboy" from one of the Ray Concepcion videos from Kurt Vile's last Silent Barn show, which I've posted below. If I had any doubt that Kurt Vile has any more good material left in him after this new album, "Peeping Tomboy" puts my worries to rest. With the October 6th release of Childish Prodigy, it was no surprise that Kurt Vile and the Violators mostly performed songs from that album. However, he performed a couple of songs off Constant Hitmaker, and they were given the Violators treatment. Of course, KV and the Violators tackled "Freeway," the song that Kurt once referred to as their Billboard chart hit, "right above 'Like a Rolling Stone.'" By far, the live version of "Freeway" is my favorite, mostly due to J Turbo's added harmonica part. No "My Sympathy" this night, but Kurt said he would definitely play it at his next NYC show. I will be there." [LAMIMAB]
That review of from Kurt Vile's show at Mercury Lounge last night (10/7). A few hours earlier he played a set at UCB that was aired live on WFMU (that's where the picture was taken).

Kurt Vile and the Violators are now on tour, but they'll be back soon. They were just added as opener on the November 18th Big Star show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple. Some tickets are still available.

Today is The Ninth Annual New York City International Pickle Day.

Sufjan Stevens kicks off a four-night run with Cryptacize at Bowery Ballroom.

"Count yourselves among the fortunate, Philadelphians. Celebrated songwriter Sufjan Stevens is playing only 14 shows on his tour that launched at a sold-out Johnny Brenda's on Monday, and with a repeat performance scheduled last night, two of the indie auteur's dates were set at the cozy Fishtown club.

Stevens' 75-minute set with his six-piece band was notable for more than just its intimate setting. (Last time through town, Stevens - who brought the indie-music world to ecstasy with his 2005 folk-baroque album Illinois - sold out the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, roughly 10 times the size of Johnny Brenda's.)

Coming on stage in a Zoo York skull-and-bones T-shirt and camouflage cap, Stevens was backed by an able and adaptable ensemble that included a trombonist who played guitar and a trumpeter who switched off to French horn and keyboards. Finger-picking a banjo, and singing in a tremulous voice, Stevens began by conveying a sense of spiritual wonder with "All the Trees in the Field Will Clap Their Hands" from 2004's biblical-flavored Seven Swans." [philadelphia inquirer]

Sufjan performed all of Seven Swans at ATP NY this year.

Lucinda Williams plays from her 1992-2001 catalogue at Irving Plaza tonight. She played the same venue last night.

Rian Johnson's Mountain Goats concert film, Life of the World to Come, screens at Housing Works Bookstore with the director and John Darnielle in attendance.

Chain and the Gang, Silk Flowers, Julianna Barwick and Screens play Mercury Lounge.

Zazen Boys were scheduled to play Southpaw tonight, but their trip here was canceled.

NY Burlesque Fest continues at (Le) Poisson Rouge.

Union Pool hosts a BV-sponsored metal bill that includes Woe, Aluk Todolo (who played the WFMU Fest this week), Malkuth and Castevet.

Have you checked out the new Knitting Factory Brooklyn yet? Tonight the venue presents Princeton, Maps and Atlases, and Laura Stevenson & The Cans. In October Princeton is going on tour with Art Brut.

Gavin Friday & Friends holds a benefit at Carnegie Hall. Guests include Laurie Anderson, Antony, Elizabeth Ashley, Bono, Adam Clayton, Andrea Corr, The Edge, Flo & Eddie, Joel Grey, Bill Frisell, Guggi, Scarlett Johansson, Courtney Love, Lydia Lunch (who played Music Hall last night), Patrick McCabe, Maria McKee, Shane MacGowan, Eric Mingus, Larry Mullen, Jr., JG Thirlwell, Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright, Chloe Webb and "special guests" (the phrase starts to lose meaning...).

Aimee Mann caps her trio of shows at City Winery tonight.

"Wearing jeans and a tailored black blazer, she played a solid two-hour set, breezing through old hits (a folksy take on her '80s hit with 'Til Tuesday, "Voices Carry," was a highlight) and newer favorites, including some from her latest disc, the Grammy-nominated @#%&*! Smilers. It was a fantastic show, but I was secretly hoping she'd rock out a little more--and she eventually did, trading in her acoustic for an electric bass during the encore." [Elle]

eMusic talked to Indie Rock moms...

"Wow, it's hard to pick just one song. Some of my favorites are "90 Mile Water Wall" and "Thirsty" (Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers), "Daughters of the Soho Riots" (Alligator),"Son" (The National), "About Today" (Cherry Tree) and "Squalor Victoria" and "Gospel" (Boxer). I love the unique sound each song has, and how the band pounds it out on one and soothes your soul with another. I love the passion that each member of the band has about their music and the friends they have made on this amazing journey. I am so proud of both of my sons. Thanks guys! Keep on drummin' and strummin.'" [Shari Devendorf, Mother of Scott and Bryan Devendorf (The National)]
