They will join the Don't Look Back shows also taking place on Friday: The Feelies performing Crazy Rhythms, New York's finest Suicide performing their first LP, Dirty Three performing Ocean Songs and The Drones performing Wait Long By The River...

Akron/Family played the final song at the Knitting Factory (Josh Haner/The NY Times)
Knitting Factory

"It was a particularly cacophonous performance of "Auld Lang Syne." But for the Knitting Factory's last night in Manhattan, it was appropriate, as the shaggy avant-folk group Akron/Family led a version of the Scots New Year's hymn on Wednesday night that mutated from a simple singalong to screeching feedback to a meditative one-note drone." [NY TIMES]
The NYC club is closed, but that's not the last of "Knitting Factory". In addition to the locations in Hollywood, Boise and Spokane that are still open, Knitting Factory Brooklyn is supposedly opening in March. Knitting Factory is also currently promoting/presenting some shows at The Studio @ Webster Hall - two at least:
  • Jan 09 - Bear Hands, Holy Hail, Atarah Valentine & Statehood
  • Jan 24 - Oxford Collapse, Suckers & Real Estate
They are also presenting tours.

Leonard Street, 3-floor location, RIP.

fun fun fun fest

Fun Fun Fun Fest (a music festival this weekend in Austin) successfully mixes punk, indie, singer-songwriter, hardcore, dance, hip-hop, metal, comedy, new and old. For instance, after blowing my mind to the thrash metal stylings of Municipal Waste, I immediately ran over to catch the end of Bishop Allen's family friendly indie rock set. I like that. One of the bad things, like most festivals, is how much overlaps. On Saturday I had to completely give up seeing The National, Z-Trip, Neil Hamburger, Yacht, and Hawnay Troof. Tonight (Sunday, November 9th), I'll probably have to miss all of Clipse, Tim & Eric, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, in favor of seeing Bad Brains. I also have to decide between Bouncing Souls and Minus the Bear.

Highlights from day one (yesterday, Saturday) included Dead Milkmen, Municipal Waste (wall of death), Dead Milkmen, Walter Schreifel's solo set (Rival Schools was good too), Dead Milkmen, Killdozer (killed it), Dead Milkmen, Dan Deacon (camp counselor of the year), Dead Milkmen, and Krumbums (punk is not dead). What I caught of Octopus Project, Trail of Dead and Deerhoof was also great. If I say anymore, I'll be late for Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears and/or Kevin Seconds. For now, here are some more pictures from day one...

* Chin Chin @ Union Pool

The Veils played the Bell House with Liam Finn last night. They announced on stage that they would be playing a show tonight at Union Hall, after the comedy.

"The end came on October 12, 1978, when Nancy Spungen was found sprawled on the bathroom floor of their hotel room clad in a black bra and panties. She had bled to death from a single stab wound to the abdomen, later traced to a knife owned by Sid Vicious."

Happy Freethought Day.

Tomorrow is Columbus Day.

M.I.A. is pregnant. Lisa Marie Presley had twins.

Parenthetical Girls

"To celebrate the release of Entanglements, their first album for Tomlab, Parenthetical Girls asked some of their friends to cover and remix some of the songs from the album - the first two offerings came from labelmates No Kids and fellow NW avant heroes The Dead Science, who covered "This Regrettable End" and "Young Eucharists" respectively. Now Deerhoof have covered the song "Gut Symmetries" and we use the term "covered" loosely because they kept Zac Pennington's original vocals intact.

Deerhoof @ Prospect Park on 7/18/08 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)

"For me the thing about Obama is I really like the way he talks. In the Demo debates it would be someone talking gibberish, then someone else countering in gibberish, then he'd start in and suddenly every word made sense." [Greg Saunier of Deerhoof]

Those are at Irving Plaza on October 22nd (tickets) and at Spiegeltent on Oct 21st (no tickets yet).

Deerhoof @ Prospect Park

WNYC, July 18, 2008 - In an interview with host David Garland, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof admitted that he has recently liberally taken ideas from Igor Stravinsky. What more perfect pairing than this Wordless Music Series concert of the forward-thinking indie rock band Deerhoof and a wild re-imagining of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring by the Metropolis Ensemble? The unlikely playbill was recorded live by WNYC at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, N.Y. [read more & LISTEN to the whole show @ NPR]
