Freddie Gibbs will rhyme all over Glasslands on Friday (10/22) when he hits the Yours Tru.ly showcase alongside Sun Airway, Cults, Kisses, Laurel Halo, Candy Claws, Young Man, Oberhofer, Guards, and James Vincent McMorrow. The show is the day before he hits the #OFFLINE Pitchfork party at Brooklyn Bowl (10/23) which will also feature Cults. Tour dates are below.
Dent May is prepping to play the Chocolate Bobka day party at Pianos as we speak (10/20, set is at 6PM), and will be joined by Woodsman, Sultan, and many others on it's two floors. Git on down there! Or if you can't make it today, then catch Dent May at the #OFFLINE party at Brooklyn Bowl Thursday, or the Forest Family/Gorilla Vs Bear party later that day (doors at 6) at The Pyramids (32D South 1st Street) with Marnie Stern, Eternal Summers, La Cera, Family Trees, Luke Rathbone, Young Prisms, Slow Animal, and... Surfer Blood.
Small Black is hitting the road with Class Actress for a string of US dates, and will follow those up with some in the EU. But before that, the band has a CMJ showcase (and the non-CMJ #OFFLINE show) to headline at Pianos on 10/21, stocked with bands like Sun Airway, La Ices, S.Carey, and Suuns who also plays the BrooklynVegan showcase the same night.
Speaking of the BrooklynVegan showcase and #OFFLINE, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are now playing both. They've always been our Thursday night headliner (tickets are getting close to sold out) and Pitchfork just added them to their Saturday show. They added Titus Andronicus to that day too, and released the set times for all three days. The Fool's Gold 3rd Anniversary Party portion happens late Saturday night (starts at midnight). All the set times are below.
You can spend all day at Public Assembly on Saturday, and still get to Brooklyn Bowl in time to see Ty Segall, Pains, Matthew Dear, Freddie Gibbs, Titus for a 2nd time, and all of the Fool's Gold stuff.
Highlife plays the Chouette show at Bruar Falls today at 4PM (10/20) with Sharon Van Etten and Lower Dens (who play the BV Day Party on Fri), but also will play the Invisible Children/Blogotheque Showcase on 10/22 as well as the #OFFLINE party at Brooklyn Bowl the next day (10/23). The Blogtheque showcase will go down at SPiN NYC (48 East 23rd St) and will also feature Traffique and Yellow Ostrich.
How to Dress Well will do double duty TONIGHT (10/20), playing the Ramiken Crucible with Salem and then the Lefse/I Guess I'm Floating CMJ showcase at The Delancey later on with A Classic Education and many others. In addition to playing the #OFFLINE party at Brooklyn Bowl on 10/22, he'll also DJ the Altered Zones after-party at Glasslands with John Maus, Prince Rama, Greatest Hits, Teen Inc, Hippos in Tanks DJs, and more. The next day, you can catch HTDW at the Fader Fort with OFF!, Teen Inc, Wack Flocka Flame, Royal Bangs, Tanlines, Glasser and others. RSVP here.
Exhausted yet? Our full guide to tonight/Wednesday is HERE. Dates for artists mentioned above, set times and stuff below...
Matthew Dear @ MHOW in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
As mentioned, Pitchfork will be hosting three days of shows at Brooklyn Bowl during, but-it-looks-like/probably completely unaffiliated with, CMJ this year (Thursday/Friday/Saturday CMJ week). "Brooklyn Bowl is located at 61 Wythe Avenue between N. 11th and N. 12th streets. The festival starts at 2 p.m. each day, with doors opening at 1 p.m. Tickets are $10, both in advance and day of the show." They're calling it the #OFFLINE Festival.
Based on the lineups and start time, it looks like each #OFFLINE day will be about a 12 hour show. No set times yet though, but the full lineups and ticket links are below...
Matthew Dear is one of the biggest names on the list (he plays Saturday), and it will be one of three CMJ week shows for Matthew. His first is Friday night at Webster Hall with Jamaica and Dominique Young Unique. His third is later on Saturday at Public Assembly for the FIXED/Making Time Party with Matthew Dear, Crocodiles, Holy Ghost!, Javelin, Gold Panda, Jamaica, and Kisses.
The FIXED/Making Time party starts after the BrooklynVegan party which is also happening at Public Assembly that same day. Just to be clear:
SATURDAY OCTOBER 23RD
* BrooklynVegan @ Public Assembly 12-6pm (free - more details TBA)
* FIXED/Making Time @ Public Assembly 9pm-late (tickets)
* Pitchfork @ Brooklyn Bowl 2pm-late (tickets)
* BrooklynVegan metal @ Union Pool 7pm-late ($5.00 or CMJ badge at the door)
We (BrooklynVegan) will also be at Public Assembly all day on Friday, October 22nd (details TBA), and at Music Hall of Williamsburg on the Thursday night.
All Matthew Dear tour dates (many of which we previously posted including a November show at MHoW), and the Pitchfork #OFFLINE Fest info, below...
Swedish female folk duo First Aid Kit never made it to CMJ 2009, MusicSnobbery CMJ show included. So they're going to try it again. MusicSnobbery presents First Aid Kit and The Loom at Joe's Pub on Saturday, October 23rd. It's a late show (11:30pm), and tickets are on sale.
Whether that show is actually part of CMJ or not is unclear (I don't think it is), but the other two shows the band plays in NYC that week definitely are. You can also catch First Aid Kit as part of the Saddle Creek/Wichita CMJ showcase at the Delancey on October 21, and as part of the Windish Agency showcase at Rockwood Music Hall one day later:
10.22 | FRIDAY @ ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALLAnd speaking of Windish showcases, the announced lineup of the one they're throwing at Santos Party House on the 23rd recently got much bigger. In addition to School of Seven Bells, there will also be sets by Asobi Seksu, Cults, Big Freedia, French Horn Rebellion, Bikini, Royal Bangs, Superhumanoids, Dominique Young Unique, Chain Gang of 1974, The Good Natured and Delicate Steve. Tickets are on sale.
CMJ Music Marathon
8-12am The Windish Agency Presents:
8:00pm Apache Beat
9:00pm Sun Airway
10:00pm Crayon Fields
11:00pm First Aid Kit
12:00am Lower Dens
1:00am The Prigs
Those NYC dates come at the end of a North American tour for the duo. That tour kicks off on September 30th in Seattle, includes Austin City Limits, and a bunch of shows with Ferraby Lionheart opening. All dates are listed below.
If you're familiar with First Aid Kit's music, you probably know that the girls stuck gold with their cover of Fleet Foxes' "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" (video below). It was so good they even included the track on their 2008/2009 release, "Druken Trees" which was released on Karin Dreijer Andersson of Fever Ray/The Knife's Rabid label in 2008, and then re-released by Wichita in 2009.
That 2009 release, though 8 tracks long, fell into the EP or mini-LP category. The girls' debut LP, The Big Black & Blue, was released earlier this year on Wichita. The third single from that album is "Ghost Town" and is being released this Tuesday by Wichita as a 7" with a new great cover as the b-side. That cover is "When I Grow Up" by Fever Ray.
Listen to that cover, the Fleet Foxes cover, the official video for the single, and all dates, below....
Twin Sister @ Mercury Lounge
Twin Sister have had a pretty good 2010 so far: a critically-lauded EP, tours with Bear in Heaven and MemoryHouse. The band will be hitting the road again soon. After playing the 2010 Pop Montreal fest, Twin Sister will head out for an extensive tour with The Morning Benders. At different points along the way, Cults, Oberhoferand Holiday Shores will also be joining the tour. It hits Webster Hall on November 18. Tickets are still on sale.
Oberhofer, who also opened for Twin Sister at Mercury Lounge recently, opens the Webster Hall show. We posted pictures of Oberhofer from that show, but not the Twin Sister ones. Here they are.
But before that Twin Sister are playing this Friday (9/10) at Bruar Falls as part of a pretty great bill that includes soon-to-be tourmates Holiday Shores, plus Ava Luna and Chicago's Distractions. You might want to get there early for that one.
New videos for Twin Sister's "Galaxy Plateau" and Morning Benders' "All Day Daylight" are below, along with all Twin Sister tour dates and more pictures from Mercury Lounge...

Local Natives & the crowd @ FYF Fest Saturday
Yesterday was FYF Fest. We know all the problems... The lines... And are addressing them now. In no way are we sleeping on these problems. The bands were amazing and the turn out was unreal. I'm speechless. -Sean Carlson & FYF FestThat's how the FYF Fest organizers started their post-fest email, which also outlined new, cheaper pricing to the three "fan fest" shows it hosted on Sunday in LA. For all the organizational problems on Saturday, FYF still managed to put on a highly enjoyable day of bands, around 37 total across three stages (plus a comedy tent), at LA State Historic Park.
The day's short sets kept you wanting more from nearly every act, many of whom played for a half hour or 35 minutes (which expanded in 5 minute increments up to an hour for the headliners). That made for tough decisions between overlapping sets. Ted Leo and band blew through their 45 minutes, and Titus Andronicus could've continued for another 35 at least with the momentum from their Monitor songs. Those two, along with Screaming Females, were part of what Ted Leo termed the "New Jersey Takeover" - three punk bands with Garden State roots who all played great sets at the fest.
Los Angeles represented with a number of notable hometown acts. Growlers, in grey facepaint, brought an earthy, ramshackle sound and lots of friends. Best Coast, Abe Vigoda, Local Natives and Ariel Pink also repped their hometown - the latter two with mezmerizing late afternoon sets.
Other acts brought some nice surprises. A chorus of kids, costumed as zombie versions of dead historical figures, backed Dead Man's Bones' Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields. The Blow introduced some of her new songs written for an unnamed celebrity (and played recognizable earlier songs too, including one "written with Sting...when [she] was 7"). And Big Freedia, the fest's only act with any trace of hip-hop, shocked the crowd with a short pre-headerliner dose of "Azz Everywhere."
There was plenty of garage rock (Thee Oh Sees brought the man responsible for their cover art, William Keihn, to play tambourine), punk and metal. A reunited Sleep, in New York this week, grinded away, as !!! had people shaking their ass on the sister stage. On the fest's third stage, hardcore band 7 Seconds reminisced about their first time in LA almost 30 years ago and lead a spirited circle pit. Add to those bands, breezy folk from AA Bondy, the jams of Warpaint and Delorean to name a few.
If FYF's organizers are a bit defensive above, it may be with good reason: the few critical organizational errors were fairly memorable. A long line at will call (an hour would be a short estimate) kept many waiting in the 90 degree sun while the first bands of the day (Magic Kids, Let's Wrestle and The Goat) could be heard starting in the distance. Water inside was also an issue, with limited access to free drinking water and bottled water at $4 (which, according to Noah Lennox, ran out).
By the end of the night, the two final acts - The Rapture and Panda Bear - set up on competing stages. Panda Bear aka Noah Lennox interspersed his dreamy lullabies with patches of noise and dissonance while videos and images that could be described only as "trippy" played behind him; I think your response to the set depended largely on your state of mind after the long day: exhausted or ready for a patience-testing string of songs and sounds. He and The Rapture provided, alternately, a place to dance or doze.
Unsane also played a rare runion set at the festival where Off! shared a bill with Lower Dens. School of Seven Bells, Davila 666, Cults and Ceremony were there too.
Read what Noah thought about his own set, HERE. More pictures from the entire day, below...

"Not letting a little rain deter us from the excellent High Places/Fucked Up/Liars show at Barge Park." - jdye
Cults (who just opened for Goldfrapp), Male Bonding (who are touring with Best Coast in September) and Titus Andronicus played the early show on the "MetroPCS Stage" at Newtown Barge Park as part of the 2nd annual Northside Festival in Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon (6/26). High Places, Fucked Up and Liars played the show right afterward at the same venue. More pictures starting with Titus, below...
interview by Billy Jones, top photo by Ryan Muir
Dom, pictured above playing at a party inside Pitchfork's Brooklyn offices on Tuesday night, are in town to play two Northside Festival shows. The first happens tonight, Thursday, June 24th, at the Knitting Factory. Dom opens for Cloud Nothings and WAVVES. That show is sold out. After that it's Saturday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg aka the BrooklynVegan showcase with Zaza, Twin Sister, and Memory Tapes. That one still has tickets available. Both shows are also accessible with a Northside Festival badge (first come, first served, capacity permitting, etc).
Billy Jones (you may have read his recent interview with Dave Sitek) caught up with Dom (the person) via gchat on Wednesday. They talked about Dom (the group), the Pitchfork party, Cults, gingers (they both are), Total Slacker, salvia, Party Expo, merch and more...
Billy: sup man
Dom: nothing much. chillin.
Billy: i am ginger
Dom: sick! u kno we are less than 10 percent population
Billy: have you seen the M.I.A. video?
Dom: yes i have
Billy: how do you feel about mia? i am left handed and ginger. fucked.
Dom: i love mia. yeah i wasnt really moved one way or another by the vid. great concept, butttt, i could have done it better

"And it worked. Over the last 10 years, Goldfrapp has built up quite a cult. The [DC show at 9:30 Club] was sold out and a few devout fans even showed up wearing blonde wigs. Over an hour and a half set Goldfrapp changed costumes--musical and otherwise--a few times, putting a digital spin on pretty much every genre that has ever aspired to fabulousness--including glam-rock, disco, and a few Bond-theme-worthy ballads. It was a familiar sound with a futuristic finish."Speaking of cults, Cults are on tour with Goldfrapp and they opened last night's show at Hammerstein Ballroom (6/23).

DOWNLOAD: Guilty Simpson & Bumps - Drums (MP3)
A new Madvillain track, "Papermill," is online to stream and download. The Madlib's wirey '70s cop chase sample and top-form wordplay from DOOM are both good signs that the pair is putting in some serious effort to follow-up 2004's Madvillainy. The label writes that the song will be on the new album, which is still a work in progress.
The song is online as part of the Adult Swim singles series, which has been distributing tracks weekly. Madvillian was the second song, and there's already one from Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Matt Sweeney. On the way is music from Black Lips, Freddie Gibbs, Killer Mike, High on Fire, Cults and Washed Out.
To measure just how long the new Madvillain is taking in Madlib-years (remember, he already put out his own part 2 of their debut), consider the fact that Stones Throw gave the beatmaker his own label imprint, Madlib Invazion, in early '10, and that's now in the process of releasing one Madlib CD a month for 12 months. The most recent edition, Madlib Medicine Show #5: History Of The Loop Digga, 1990-2000, collects "Madlib's previously unreleased, made-for-cassette 90s work" under the Loop Digga name (and comes with a comic book to boot).
Madlib's "OJ Simpson" collaborator Guilty Simpson recently released a track with Bumps, the beatmaking trio of Tortoise drummers John McEntire, John Herndon and Dan Bitney. You can get that above. The OJ Simpson album is out now on Stones Throw.
All Tortoise dates and some classic Madvillain videos are below...

"On set with Cults at their video shoot. Video will be amazing." - The Willowz
Will McLaren w/ Cults @ Ridgwood Masonic Temple (more by Jessica Amaya)
Will McLaren, guitar player in Cults, is also a member of longer-running band The Willowz. Cults started out as as duo. Core Cults member Madeline Follin is the sister of Willowz member Richie James Follin. Core Cults member Brian Oblivion used to be the Willowz tour manager. Madeline met Brian through the Willowz and formed Cults. They then added Will Willowz (and others) to the live band. Quiz later. The two bands are touring France together in June.
The Willowz, who recently played a bunch of shows with Delta Spirit, have more recently been taking part in Hot Hot Heat's month-long residency at Public Assembly including the show that happened last night (a few people I know went and watched it after PiL played right next door). The next show is on May 26th.
Will, besides playing at the upcoming Cults dates (which include a Nortside Fest show and a tour with Maps & Atlases), will be joining Taken by Trees (aka Swedish songwriter Victoria Bergsman) at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Tuesday, May 25th. Other guest musicians at the gig will include Mikael Karlsson (who's worked with Lykke Li) on keyboards, Amy Linton from The Aislers Set on drums, and Elsa Chiao on backup vocals. We have a pair of tickets to give away to the show. Details are below.
Taken By Tree's Victoria is also DJing at the Bell House during Pop Fest this weekend.
Videos of the Willowz, all dates, and a live clip and short doc on Taken by Trees' record East of Eden, which came out last September, with the LPR show flyer, below...
Cults @ Ridgewood Masonic Temple (more by Jessica Amaya)
After the coming out party that was their gig opening for Sleigh Bells at Ridgewood Masonic Temple on May 11th, new band Cults are ready to see the country. The band will tour North America with Chicago's Maps & Atlases this July and August, starting in California and heading east. They both play NYC's Mercury Lounge on August 12th (tickets TBA) and Knitting Factory on August 13th (tickets).
Maps & Atlases' debut, Perch Patchwork, comes out June 29th on Barsuk. Cults has songs available for free here, and there's a video from their set at the Ridgewood Masonic Temple, and one from their show at Mercury Lounge which was before that, below. That and all tour dates, including Maps & Atlases' current dates with Frightened Rabbit, are below...

"happy to see Sleigh Bells packing Ridgewood Temple, sadly secret famous guest is ill, won't be appearing. mild bummer, awesome show" - Todd P
"Yeah, people were going bonkers. There were a lot of cameras and a lot of guest list action going on, but people came to rock. "A/B Machines", "Kids," "Crown On The Ground"? Total bangers." [Fluxblog]Celebrating the digital release of their new album on the same day that anyone who cares heard it (stream it at NPR now), Sleigh Bells headlined a sold out show at Ridgewood Temple in NYC last night (5/11). Not only was a special guest originally advertised, M.I.A. did actually show up to the band's show at Coco66 a few days earlier. No such luck this time (see above). Cults and Sundelles opened the show. More pictures and SB's setlist below....

Sleigh Bells @ SXSW (more by Andrew Frisicano)
Sleigh Bells' show at Webster Hall tonight with Yeasayer, their brief tourmates, is sold out. But there are more chances to see the highly buzzed band soon. One of those, originally scheduled to take place at the now-closed Market Hotel, happens May 11th at Ridgewood Temple (1054 Bushwick Ave @ Gates St, Bushwick). Advance tickets available in-person through Record Grouch/Old Made Vintage (441 Metropolitan Ave at Meeker St) in Williamsburg (1pm-7pm daily). Past shows at the venue have included Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts on Halloween and Dan Deacon/Ed Schrader in '08.
Sleigh Bells also play the intimate backroom at Coco 66 on May 7th with Mr. Dream (Matt Morello, Adam Moerder and Nick Sylvester) and DJ Rezound. MNDR was supposed to play the show too, but "A last-minute request from Massive Attack to open for their North American tour is taking her away to Canada." Advance tickets are sold out, and "
A very limited number of tickets will be avail at the box office on Friday May 7th at 10:00 PM." UPDATE: "20 tickets will be available at the door at 9pm, not 10pm."
Also on the bill for the Ridgewood Temple show are Brooklyn band Sundelles, "secret guests," and Cults. Cults are a new duo who NME says recently expanded to a four-piece for live shows. Their debut 7", noticed already by both Pitchfork and Perez, is available for free at their site.
Cults is real-life couple "Brian Oblivion" (not his real name presumably) and Madeline Follin, and their songs have a girl-group-influenced, retro pop sound. This gig will be one of their first shows ever (they played Mercury Lounge recently). This summer they're also playing an afternoon show with Titus Andronicus at Newtown Barge Park on Saturday, June 26th (Part of the Northside Festival). One of their tracks is above.

Fucked Up @ MWTX in Austin (more by Andrew Frisicano)
Lineups for Brooklyn's Northside Festival are coming together-- and some of the bigger shows (that aren't at Music Hall) are going to be at Greenpoint's Newtown Barge Park. First, Titus Andronicus, Cults and a special guest play an afternoon (1pm) show on Saturday, June 26th. Later that night, Liars, Fucked Up and High Places play the space (6pm). Then the next night (6/27, 6pm), Les Savy Fav performs with Polvo and Grails. Tickets to all three are on sale now. The shows are all ages (badges, which you must be 21+ to purchase, get you in too, capacity permitting).
Northside writes that the shows will be the first at the 1,500-capacity park space. Newtown Barge Park is a triangle of land at the corner of Franklin and Commercial Streets, and is part of the proposed plan (PDF) to expand Williamsburg/Greenpoint's waterfront park space.
may DO NOT have another Brooklyn show coming up, on Thursday, June 3rd at Glasslands with Boogie Boarder. It has been cancelled. It was supposed to be a benefit for Neighbors Allied for Good Growth, a group frontman Patrick Stickles has talked about before...
Pitchfork: Best Purchase of the Past YearMaybe they'll reschedule it at a later date.
Patrick Stickles: We can't take too much pride in the things we that own, can we? If I can get on my soapbox for a minute.... Isn't it much more important not what things we bought, but where we bought them? I'd love for you to remind your Brooklyn-based readership that they should make a point of not supporting the new Duane Reade that's moving in across the street from the historic Kings Pharmacy on Bedford Avenue. If you'd pass that along I'd appreciate that a lot. You can read a lot more about it at the website of this community group called Neighbors Allied for Good Growth. We all need to remember to vote with our dollars and take a stand for locally owned independent businesses, because that's what makes American capitalism great.
Grails has a new EP coming out. Grab an MP3 from that.
Fucked Up recently posted a new song that'll appear on a 12" split with Serena-Maneesh. You can get it above. Also, Damian from Fucked Up has been Internet debating the new Arizona immigration laws with fellow Canadian band Stars via Twitter and Stereogum.
All tour dates for Titus and Fucked Up are below...
"Like last year, everything will be taking place in Williamsburg and Greenpoint because walking long distances is a drag when there are bands to see and beer to drink, we mean seriously. Us here at The L Magazine will be booking a share of shows on our own, but, for a large chunk of the festival, we've once again handed over curatorial control to some of the most tasteful, talented and dedicated folks in New York's independent music scene -- record labels, bloggers, promoters and more -- allowing them to showcase the bands they think you need to hear. The Williamsburg Gallery Association is again on board to highlight special exhibitions and other events at over 25 art galleries in the neighborhood. And to celebrate Northside's second year, we've invited a few of the city's biggest aficionados of independent film to curate four nights of New York-made movies at Brooklyn's new, as-yet-unopened film house-music club-restaurant-bar, indieScreen."That message from L Magazine refers to the second annual Northside Festival, taking place in Brooklyn from June 24th through the 27th.
Music, art and movies will be happening at "30+ venues" and "dozens of galleries" over the course of four days in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Like SXSW & CMJ, you can buy tickets to individual events, or you can get a badge which gets you in to everything that isn't already at badge-capacity. $50 badges are now on sale to those 21 and over. If you buy a badge, "Arrive to venues early - badgeholders are admitted on a first-come, first-served, one-out, one-in basis."
If you buy a badge you can take your chances at getting into one of the four Northside shows happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg (BrooklynVegan showcase included), Fiery Furnaces at Brooklyn Bowl, and WAVVES & Cloud Nothings at Knitting Factory. TONS more shows TBA, but the initial list of bands that will be playing has been announced (I'm especially excited to see The Wave Pictures, Fucked Up, Liars, Parenthetical Girls and Les Savy Fav on there in addition to what we've previously talked about) (and yes Titus Andronicus is on there). Check it out below...
The first-ever Mountain Man Fest (not affiliated with the band Mountain Man) is tentatively set for July 24th in Saratoga Springs, NY. I say tentative because for the fest to happen it first has to be funded in full through a Kickstarter page with the goal of $65,000. What all that money is being used for isn't 100% clear, but the fest has until May 12th to make that goal. For a ticket, you need to "donate" at least $35. As of this writing it looks like they've sold 12 with "1488 of 1500 remaining".
Though that's a daunting goal (1,500 regularly priced tickets plus other donations), the "confirmed" lineup so far isn't that bad if you consider how much it would cost you to see each band separately (or as the fest puts it, "You (yes you!) get to see 12 hrs+ of amazing bands"): Islands (their only show currently), HEALTH (who are coming to NYC in June), Real Estate, Phantogram, Woods, Summer Camp, Memoryhouse, Pill Wonder, Family Portrait, Cults, Eternal Summers and Yip Yip ("You'll also be blessed with the sweet satisfaction of knowing that YOU helped make possible this history making musical event"). Underwater Peoples Records are involved in sponsoring the fest (four bands from the label are playing the show).
Another version of the cool poster art (which you can buy as part of giving them money) and the lineup again are below...
