Gramercy Arms

The Guardian reports that Rough Trade will open a new shop in Nottingham, the "independent music chain will establish its fourth store, following last autumn's opening in New York."

As you know, the NYC shop, located in Williamsburg, is both a record store and music venue. Upcoming shows at the NYC venue include new Frenchkiss-signed Cold War Kids side project French Style Furs (who also play Mercury Lounge), the 5-year anniversary of 'Let's Play House' (free entry and beer with RSVP), Sub Pop-signed Seattle psych band Rose Windows, Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip (who relocated from Joe's Pub), a free Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens show (with Daptone DJs), and a free-with-purchase Gramercy Arms show.

Gramercy Arms, who we first mentioned in 2008 (the same year they last released anything and when we caught them at Bowery Ballroom with Nada Surf and Delta Spirit), "is a revolving New York based collective of musicians and artists, masterminded by main songwriter/producer Dave Derby (Dambuilders/Lloyd Cole) along with Rainy Orteca, Sean Eden and Kevin March. The group is releasing its second full-length record, The Seasons of Love, on Reveal Records on July 21st."

The Rough Trade show is their record release show and will feature: Kevin March (drums), Sean Eden (guitar), Rainy Orteca (bass), Carl Baggaley (keyboards), Claudia Chopek (violin), and Kendall Meade and Renee LoBue guesting on backing vocals. They have no other scheduled dates at the moment. You can watch their new video for "Always in Love", below...

Haim / Brody Dalle / La Luz @ Sasquatch 6/1/2014
2014 Sasquatch Festival - Day 3
2014 Sasquatch Festival - Day 3

2014 Sasquatch Festival - Day 3

Everyone has their own opinions on what makes for a memorable day of Sasquatch. Some believe that it's a chance of a lifetime headliner. Others think that it's a day filled with warm temps and unceasing sunshine.

But what really makes an unforgettable day at the Gorge's perennial Memorial Day festival is a day where no matter the time, there's always a mind-blowing performance to be found. The final day this year was one of those days.

Starting promptly at 1 p.m., the first few hours of the third day were stacked with some of the best female offerings that Sasquatch had provided yet. Seattle's fun loving punk rock outfit Tacocat jammed out to a jaunty set of tunes and kept the audience rapt with a combination of irreverent humor and a hurricane of bubbles that swirled in front of them. They were immediately followed on the Yeti stage by their Hardly Art label mates La Luz who kept it cool and breezy with an engaging display of their modern surf-rock sound.

The bevy of fantastic women performers continued with another epic one-two punch on the main stage starting with bona fide punk rock ass-kicker Brody Dalle. Tune-Yards kept things thumping shortly thereafter and got the crowd moving with her one of a kind, drum-driven world music inflected sound. Dozens of people burst into a legitimate full-tilt run down the gorge as she kicked into her song "Gangsta." - [The News Tribune]

Sasquatch 2014 came to a close on Sunday (6/1) with sets from Haim, Queens of the Stone Age, tUnE-yArDs, Rodriguez, Parquet Courts, Tycho, Kid Kudi, Elbow, John Grant, Waxahatchee, Brody Dalle, La Luz, Lucius, Bob Mould, Major Lazer, comedians like Hannibal Burress and Kate Berlant, and lots more. Pictures from Sasquatch day 3 are in this post.

Check out pictures from day 1 and day 2. More from Sasquatch day 3 below...

The Flaming Lips in San Francisco on Halloween (more by Chris Tuite)
Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, Tegan & Sara, Cold War Kids and Cake are among the artists announced for the next Amnesty International Human Rights Concert, which takes place this year at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on February 5. The concert also features Colbie Caillat, Imagine Dragons, The Fray, and other special guests. Tickets go on sale Saturday (1/11) at 10 AM with an AmEx presale starting Thursday (1/9) at 10 AM and an Internet presale starting Friday (1/10) at 10 AM.

Some background on the Amnesty concerts, via press release:

Twenty-five years after its initial concert series, which featured U2, Sting, Lou Reed and others, Amnesty International is bringing back the concert - with a digital twist - to raise awareness about human rights to a new generation. The Amnesty International Bringing Human Rights Home concert will use technology to connect the music and message in real time from the stage of the Barclays Center to activists across the globe.

"The fight for global human rights begins at home," said Steven W. Hawkins, executive director for Amnesty International USA. "This concert is part of an evolving conversation about human rights that grounds the universal struggle for dignity and freedom in the injustices we see every day in our own backyard in the United States. We're bringing back the concerts to show a new generation of activists how to stand up for justice at home and abroad - whether it is fighting for the right to voice dissent peacefully on social networks or in the streets, protecting the rights of women and girls, or standing in solidarity with individuals persecuted for who they are or what they believe."
