Crosses / Color Film @ Music Hall of Williamsburg - 2/13/14
After plowing through 30 minutes, which included songs like "The Eulogy," and "Bitch's Brew," which were played earlier in the week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a few technical glitches sidelined the band for a bit. However, Moreno and Doom made up for it, in a freestyle jam session. "It means a fuckin' lot to us that you came out on this fucked up day," Moreno said to the crowd. Once the technical issues were fixed, a clearly frustrated Lopez, took to his guitar and the band went back to work. Playing for 90-minutes, including the encore, ? ? ? (Crosses) showed what they were made of. [Officially A Yuppie]Crosses (†††), the side project that gives Deftones singer Chino Moreno and Far guitarist Shaun Lopez a chance to dive into gothy synth pop, played a few shows in support of their new self-titled album last week. Two of those were in NYC, Santos last Wednesday (2/12) and Music Hall of Williamsburg the following night (2/13), both sold out. They played a bunch of the album/EPs and covered Q. Lazzarus' one hit wonder "Goodbye Horses." Opening both shows was Color Film, the project which gives Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo (joined by GJ's rhythm section) a similar opportunity to take a break from post-hardcore for synth pop. We caught the MHOW show, which also had Yung Gutted on the bill, and pictures of that show (including one of the setlist) are in this post.
More MHOW pics, plus the setlist and a couple videos from Santos, below...

Synthpop/goth legend Gary Numan has a new album and touring plans this year, including a west coast run with Cold Cave (who likely learned a thing or two from those classic Gary Numan records) which he's on now. While he's over there, he'll be coming to this weekend's Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle where in addition to his set he'll stop by the Soundwave tent for a live interview with us on Saturday at 1pm. Come by!
Meanwhile, Gary's tour will bring him to the east coast later this year, and he plays NYC on October 29 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Cold Cave won't be opening that show (they have their own NYC show coming up), but The Color Film, the new-ish project from Glassjaw's Daryl Palumbo, will. Tickets for that show are still available.
As discussed, Gary Numan's new album, Splinter, is due out on October 14 (artwork above), and since we last spoke he's revealed the first single, "I Am Dust." The new album features NIN guitarist Robin Finck (he also plays a couple dates on NIN's tour) and the new song isn't too far removed from their sound. Listen to it, along with an updated list of tour dates and album tracklist, below.

DOWNLOAD: Geoff Rickly - Mixtape 1 (ZIP)
Geoff Rickly w/ Thursday at The Chance in 2010 (more by Meghan McInnis)
Geoff Rickly, former frontman of the now defunct post-hardcore band Thursday, released his first collection of solo recordings, Mixtape 1, for free on his website. He recorded the entire thing in his apartment while Hurricane Sandy was hitting and while he asks for no money for the recordings, he says, "if you feel like you want to pay for this music, please make a donation to the Red Cross." Geoff's been volunteering himself to help out with Sandy relief and just played a benefit at Knitting Factory with Will Sheff, Jean Grae, and many others. Regarding the release of the mixtape, Geoff writes:
The Mixtape format is meant to be a casual way to try out some new things. There are some brand new songs, along with a cover and a rewrite of one of my oldest favorites. The majority of it was recorded in my apartment in the middle of Hurricane Sandy and the song New Sympathies, in particular, reminds me of those heavy winds and deep waters.The bedroom-recorded quality and the fact that it was recorded during a devastating storm which wreaked havoc on his home state makes the songs especially haunting. And songwriting-wise, it picks up on the high note that Thursday left off on. I personally thought their last album, 2011's No Devolución, was their strongest in years and one of their best overall, so solo material from Geoff Rickly comes as nothing but a pleasant surprise. You can download the mixtape at the top of this post.
There are no strings attached, no hidden marketing games. This doesn't reflect my belief that music should be free or any desire to revolutionize an industry. I just want to do this myself, for now. No art-by-committee, no selling music. Just me & my friends at home, making songs(bedroom songs, songs not too polished up). I'll keep making more of these and giving them to you when I finish. Maybe someday I'll make a proper record and sell it. Maybe not.
In October, we mentioned that Geoff planned to go on a house tour with Terrible Things (Fred Mascherino). Details for that tour have been revealed and it appears that Geoff won't be at the NYC date, but will instead open for Anthony Green in NYC when their tour together hits Irving Plaza on December 5. Tickets for that show are on sale now. That tour also hits Freehold, NJ on December 8 at Encore (tickets). All dates on that tour are listed below. As for the house shows, Geoff is still on board for the one in Wallingford, CT (tickets) and a few others, all of which are listed below.
In related news, Geoff Rickly's United Nations bandmate Daryl Palumbo (who also fronts Glassjaw and Head Automatica) has a new project with Richard Penzone of Men, Women & Children called Color Film, who will release their debut LP, Living Arrangements, at some point in 2013. They played a set in NYC during CMJ at the Irving Plaza show with GZA, Killer Mike, Sweet Valley, Haleek Maul and Bear Hands. The Music Ninja was there and writes, "So, what does Color Film sound like? Maybe a tad more (new wave-y) melodic than Glassjaw. That is to say: intense, ear-shattering, screech/yelp rock." You can stream the track "Bad Saint" form their upcoming debut below.
