Thuston Moore at Bowery Ballroom, Aptil 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
Have you been to Summer Thunder at Union Pool yet? Outside of our own shows at the venue (with Heavy Blanket/Love as Laughter and with Inter Arma/Anicon/Pyrrhon), the FREE weekly (21+) series has been hosting great shows every Saturday afternoon. This Satuday (7/26) features Nashville's Turbo Fruits, as well as Andy Animal and Mighty Fine, plus Jonathan Toubin on DJ duty. As always, things kick off at 2 PM with drink specials, and the bands start a little later in day.
They just announced the August line-up that features names like Thurston Moore/Nate Wooley/Ryan Sawyer Trio, Daniel Higgs, Devin, LiveFastDie, Soupcans, and Pampers, as well as DJ sets from Dam-Funk, Les Savy Fav and more. August 24 line-up has yet to be revealed (other than a lot of question marks and exclamation points) but otherwise full August Summer Thunder schedule is below.
Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
Earlier this week, we posted an update from Baroness showing that things were looking upwards for the band. Unfortunately though, with two members having broken vertebrae and frontman John Baizely having a broken arm and leg, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Baroness have in fact cancelled some of their upcoming North American tour dates, including their NYC show at House of Vans and LA's FYF Fest. They will not be replaced on the House of Vans lineup, which happens on August 29 and now just includes Turbonegro, Doomriders, and Nightbirds. This is a bummer but it makes sense that the band takes the time they need to recover, and we wish them a speedy and successful recovery!
Meanwhile, FYF Fest, which Wild Flag also dropped off of, recently expanded its lineup. It now features The Faint (who just announced they'll be reissuing Danse Macabre and touring the album), Glass Candy, King Tuff, and newcomers The Orwells. Tickets for FYF Fest are still available. The updated lineup and flier are below.

American Nightmare has two shows coming up at Webster Hall.

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti new album is titled Mature Themes and will be out Aug. 21 via 4AD. The first single from the album is a cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson's "Baby," and features guest vocals from Dam-Funk and you can listen to it below. It'll be out July 10 as a limited edition one-sided 12" via 4AD.
Dam-Funk is also opening on some of the dates on APHG's fall tour, though not the Webster Hall show on September 14. (Tickets are currently on presale, with an on sale Friday 6/8.) Dam Funk will however play next week at the Northside Festival.
If you want to know more about ultra-obscure Pacific Northwest duo Donnie and Joe Emmerson who did the original of "Baby," you're in luck. The great Light in the Attic Records is reissuing the group's sole 1979 album, Dreamin' Wild. You can stream the album below and see just how faithful Ariel Pink's cover is. (Very.) There's also a short documentary about the brothers that is well worth watching and you can do so below as well.
All Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti dates are listed below, along with the stream of the first single and the Donnie and Joe Emerson stream/video as well.
