Dirty on Purpose @ Mercury Lounge in NYC - Dec 31, 2008
Dirty on Purpose said their final goodbyes at Mercury Lounge in NYC on New Years Eve. As announced less than a month earlier, they're "going the way of the dodo", but "reserve the right to change our minds and get back together in six months". Regardless, as they also pointed out, there are pleny of
side other projects to keep them busy and us entertained.
Joe and the Flying Spoons (Joe's band) and Purse Snatchers (Doug's band) have a show scheduled this Sunday (1/4) at Cake Shop with Uninhabitable Mansions. As we've also pointed out before, Uninhabitable Mansions includes CYHSY's Robbie and Tyler, and Au Revoir Simone's Annie Hart who is also in Purse Snatchers.
Au Revoir Simone's Erika Forster used to be in Dirty on Purpose. As you can see from the picture above, they brought her back to join them for their final show at Mercury Lounge that A Place to Bury Strangers headlined (and helped ring in 2009) (Mr. Brownstone played the late-late show in the same club later the same night).
Purse Snatchers also have a show coming at Cake Shop (again) on February 26th with Coin Under Tongue who are also playing Death By Audio on February 28th with Sisters. Death by Audio is the warehouse space in the same Brooklyn building that houses Death By Audio the effects pedal company which is owned by Oliver Ackermann whose band is A Place to Bury Strangers and who
oversees is associated with the new Death By Audio label (where all the bands do everything for themselves according to the below comment). The two bands currently signed to the Death by Audio label are Sisters and Coin Under Tongue. George from Dirty on Purpose is in Coin Under Tongue.

DOWNLOAD: Skeletons - The Things (MP3)
"With a sound that truly verges on unclassifiable, Brooklyn-based freak-niks Skeletons are an anomaly even at the venerable Tomlab label, which stables an entire herd of experimental artists. For a group to stand out as uniquely off center amid labelmates such as Xiu Xiu and Deerhoof is rather remarkable.The band formerly known as Skeletons and the Girl Faced Boys are playing a show with Extra Life, John Dwyer & Sam Hillmer (mems ohsees, Zs), and John Fell Ryan of Excepter tonight/Friday (1/2) at Death By Audio. The show was moved from its original location of Le Poisson Rouge. Skeletons will also take part in the "Shinkoyo Circus" happening at Roulette from Jan 27 to Jan 29, and in BAM's 'Sounds like Brooklyn' fest with a show at Zebulon on February 12th. Download an MP3 above. Listen to more songs at MySpace. All dates below...
Fronted by singer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Mehlan, the fifth full-length album ["Money"] under the Skeleton's banner (third for the full group) features dispirate, seemingly incohesive musical undertones that are tenuously held together by Mehlan's R&B/pop croons. Fretboard noodling, sputtering drums and a menacing bass undercurrent comprise a confounding blend on "The THINGS," which segues unknowingly into "RIPPER a.ka. The Pillows," the latter sounding like Perry Farrell fronting John Zorn's avant-jazz band Naked City. [Lost at Sea]
New Years Eve at Death By Audio is all regular bands playing as tribute bands for one night only. The Deep & Holy Sea will be The Replacements, Asa Ransom are The Clash, Necking will be Black Flag, Love or Perish are the Misfits, Liturgy are Black Sabbath, So So Glos are playing as a mystery band, AND a mystery band are playing as Weezer. E4e1 drops the hint that the mystery band is "Shakespearean". Titus Andronicus will already be in the neighborhood. The cover is just $2.00.

Trail of Dead @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC - Nov 23, 2007 (CRED)
Having hosted Thanksgiving at my apartment for my parents and my brother and, the following day, gone to Macy's to see how awful black friday really is, my frazzled soul was very much ready to get very drunk and see Trail of the Dead at the Bowery Ballroom. Opener Pterodactyl were not pterrible, but watching them play I couldn't seem to get into them. Yet after the show was over, I kept replaying their set back in my mind and now I can't seem to stop listening to the tunes they have available at their myspace. Go figure.
Next up was Marnie Stern who completely disappointed me. She's up for two Plug Awards this year (Best Female Artist of the Year and Best Punk Record of the Year). The whole experience came across as pretty unrehearsed and sloppy (even though it is claimed by Marnie that she practices 3-hours a day). As a result, her reputation as a guitar virtuoso baffles me, as do the Plug nominations. The crowd seemed to dig it though, and the more I search the internet, the more I realize I am very much in the minority with the impression the band left me with.
At 11:30 Trail of Dead came on and reinforced what I thought when I saw them back in October at the Highline. The crowd this time was WAY more into it than when they played Highline. There was tons of sweaty folks, pushing, shoving, tossing their cups about, and really getting into the thunder being delivered from the stage. The room wasn't full at all which meant there were plenty of areas to avoid the mayhem and enjoy the show in relative safety. Regardless of what the haters say, Trail of Dead still kick ass. -Klaus
Old Time Relijun @ Silent Barn, NYC - Oct 31, 2007 (CRED)
Hello friends, lovers, enemies of the Silent Barn,Also, Todd P is taking a break...
SILENT BARN needs your help!
As some of you may know, Silent Barn is an all ages performance / art / work / living space in beautiful Ridgewood, Queens. We've had a good run so far, hosting shows and events for a wide variety of groups, having extreme fun the whole time, and we'd like to continue that onward and into the unforeseeable future. But here's the catch: we just found out that we lost our appeal of a suit with ConEd, and are receiving notices daily that we owe them back power bills for the power used by the previous residents of the space, to the tune of almost $7,000 with interest. OUCH. We are reaching out to our community for help and ideas, because if we don't come up with the money soon, ConEd will send some sort of federal official to shut off the power, effectively ending Silent Barn for good.
So, we are writing to you, dear friends, to ask for help. Have you played here before? Would you want to do it again as a benefit for the house? Have you been here before? Keep on coming! Do you have high powered rich friends who give out handouts to those in need? We want friends like that! And so on, and so forth.
Spaces like the Silent Barn are ultimately a community effort, and while this problem isn't exactly uncommon, it is still very real. We do our best to host and promote events of the highest caliber, and hopefully we as a community can keep it going. Please get in touch if you have ANY ideas that will help us work this whole mess out. We are down to do almost ANYTHING to keep the space healthy and alive, especially in these cold winter months.
Thank you forever.
xo Silent Barn
ps: if anyone has a cat that needs a home, we'd love to replace our dear departed Noodles, who has moved on to better times (in a cleaner apartment).
so I'm takin it a little easy for the next few months - you won't see a lot of shows from me while I take a substantial break & work on some other projects for awhile.Thursday, November 29th @ DEATH BY AUDIO
I'll still be around to tell you guys about great shows here & there though! [Todd P]

DOWNLOAD: Dan Deacon - The Crystal Cat (MP3)
Further confirmation that Summer has started - the first free show at McCarren Pool in Williamsburg happens this Sunday (June 24) with Superchunk, Oakley Hall and +/-. Then just two weeks after that comes the one with The Octopus Project, Erase Errata, and Dan Deacon. That same night Dan is then playing a 2nd show in Brooklyn - @ Death By Audio - a venue located on 49 South 2nd - with OCDJ who is also DJing at McCarren Pool that day AND who is playing Citysol after Les Savy Fav.
Then Dan is coming back to NYC again in September - that time with Girl Talk, and that time at Webster Hall, and that time on a super-power-hip-tag-team tour, that, like Pitchfork said, is crazy-something like the pairing of Arcade Fire & LCD Soundsystem (except really Arcade Fire & LCD Soundsystem is kind of a little bit better because they don't just hit buttons and jump around - NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT - not to mention they'll be doing all that button pushing at Webster Hall - WHICH COULD BE OK - I mean both tours will be good in their own way I think...).
