Pity Sex @ BV-CMJ 10/19/13
Ann Arbor shoegazers Pity Sex, who put out a pretty great album this year, just announced that they'll head back out on the road in January with post-hardcore band Self Defense Family (fka End of a Year, and whose singer Patrick Kindlon is also in Drug Church). And to turn what will surely be great double bills into great triple bills, they've got LVL UP supporting the first leg, and Ovlov supporting the second. The tour hits NYC on January 19 at Santos Party House with Ovlov opening. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Ticketweb for updates. All dates are listed, along with the tour flyer below.
Self Defense Family recently announced that their first LP under their current name, Try Me, will be out on January 7 via Deathwish. Watch the teaser video for that LP and stream one of their earlier tracks below.
LVL UP aren't on the NYC date of the Pity Sex/Self Defense tour, but they do have other NYC shows coming up. They'll be opening the previously discussed Saintseneca tour, including the NYC stop happening on January 18 at Baby's All Right. Also on that show is Broncho and Brass Bed. Tickets for that show are still available.
Before those tours, you can also catch LVL UP at Shea Stadium on November 29 with Liam Betson (Liam the Younger), Heeney, and Liquor Store. And they'll also return to Shea on December 5 for part two of the two-part Big Snow Buffalo Lodge farewell party. Joining LVL UP at Shea on 12/5 is Porches, Krill, Baked, Lost Boy?, and Bueno. And part 1 of the party happens on December 3 at Silent Barn with Twin Sister, Leapling, Celestial Shore, Ava Luna, Zula, and a DJ set from Empress Of. Tickets for part 1 and part 2 are on sale now. All LVL UP dates are listed below.
As discussed, LVL UP have an upcoming split with Porches coming out on November 26 via Birdtapes/Double Double Whammy. They just premiered one of their contributions, "Bad Blood," over at Beats Per Minute, and you can stream that, along with their other contribution, "Cross The Sea," and Porches' "Townie Blunt Guts," below.
Porches also play this year's WBAR Winter Formal (aka Space Prom), along with garage punk ragers Diarrhea Planet, Designer, and No Regrets Coyote. It takes place on December 13 at Barnard College in the Diana Event Oval, and is free, all ages, and open to the public. Flyer below. As discussed, Diarrhea Planet play another free show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar (12/14) a day later with Purling Hiss, Big Ups, and Manors.
Speaking of LVL UP, Porches, Double Double Whammy and Birdtapes, Crying (who are signed to DDW, and who feature Nick of LVL UP and Elaiza of Whatever, Dad) and Elvis Depressedly (signed to Birdtapes) are heading out on a tour together which includes a house show in NYC on New Year's Eve at David Blaine's The Steakhouse with Spook Houses (feat. Dave and Nick of LVL UP), Porches, Alex G, and Morrison Brook. All dates on that tour are listed, along with a stream of Crying's Get Olde EP, below.

Badges are still available. Full lineup announcement below...
by Andrew Sacher
Philly lo-fi trio Manors are a pretty stripped down, straightforward group, but there's a depth to the songwriting that goes beyond what a description like that may imply. Singer/guitarist Dayna Evans has a way with words, and a striking voice that makes a minimal song like "But You Know That" stick out as one of the grandest. And the sweeping harmonies of a song like "Tomorrow" (according to bandcamp, she does her own backup vocals) also hint at something greater than your average indie pop band. This past May, the band released their debut LP, Fit In, and you can stream that in full below.
They've got some upcoming shows scheduled, including the just-mentioned Brooklyn Night Bazaar (12/14) show with Diarrhea Planet, Purling Hiss, and Big Ups, which is free and all ages. (They also opened the Philly stop on the Diarrhea Planet/So So Glos tour.) But you can also catch them in NYC much sooner than that, because they'll be playing the previously discussed Palehound / Spook Houses show happening at Muchmore's on Saturday (11/16), which also includes Toons and Dead Wives (featuring Speedy Ortiz's Mike Falcone). That show is $7 at the door and also all ages. More info at the Facebook event. All of their dates are listed below.
For Palehound, that's one of a few upcoming dates, that also include other Brooklyn shows on December 8 at Death by Audio with Bluffing, Frankie Cosmos, and Butter the Children; and January 11 at Silent Barn. During CMJ, Palehound filmed a live-in-studio version of "I Get Clean," which you can watch, along with their list of dates, below.
All lists of dates, along with the Manors LP and Palehound video, below...

The Men / Purling Hiss
Brooklyn's jammy punks The Men and Philly's grungy rockers Purling Hiss recently wrapped up a tour together that included a very loud Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (11/5) with likeminded support from local art punks Pampers, who had just put their self-titled debut LP. The Men were fresh off the release of their acoustic Campfire Songs EP, and Purling Hiss were still celebrating March's revved up Water on Mars. Pictures from the MHOW show are in this post. Not long after, The Men headed to Austin, where they played Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Purling Hiss have another NYC show coming up, and it's a free, all ages, Impose-presented one, happening at the new Brooklyn Night Bazaar on December 14. For that show, Purling Hiss are part of a stacked lineup of similarly great indie rawk that also includes garage punk bashers Diarrhea Planet, confrontational post-hardcore kids Big Ups, and Philly lo-fi guitar pop trio Manors. The flyer for this free show is below.
The show initially included Speedy Ortiz, but they had to drop off because they're touring with The Breeders at that time.
All Purling Hiss dates are listed, along with the show flyer and more pics from The Men/Purling Hiss/Pampers show, below...

Diarrhea Planet at Made In America 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Nashville garage rockers Diarrhea Planet released their newest album, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams earlier this year. It's a solid record but they're more of a see-it-live thing, so thankfully they've been touring like crazy since its release with no plans of slowing down. After an appearance at The Fest, they'll be kicking off a new run of dates with LA's The Lovely Bad Things (who play a different Fest show). That tour comes to NYC for a show on November 9 at Glasslands with local rock 'n' rollers Desert Sharks. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
The Lovely Bad Things spent some time releasing material on trusty garage rock label Burger Records, and they've since signed with Volcom Entertainment (Torche, Valient Thorr), who released their newest long-player, The Late Great Whatever, earlier this year. The album pulls from a few Cali-bred genres, including Thee Oh Sees/Ty Segall-style garage rock, Lookout! Records-style pop punk, and sunny melodies that date all the way back to early Beach Boys. It's a ripper, and you can stream the whole thing below.
All dates are listed, along with that LP stream and a Diarrhea Planet video, below...

Nine Inch Nails / Kendrick Lamar / Miguel
Nine Inch Nails headlined the second night of Made In America, filling the "rock legend" slot occupied by Pearl Jam at last year's festival. As with Pearl Jam, many fans showed up mainly to see the headliner, and others left before their set. Like Public Enemy, who played the Rocky stage the prior day, NIN do not fit into the #YOLO vibe, which means that a good amount of the audience don't know what to do with their music. Are girls expected to grind? Should guys twirl their t-shirts over their heads? There's no question that it's a much different era from the one when Trent Reznor and crew leveled the stage at Woodstock '94 and had their zeitgeist moment. [CBS Philly]The Jay Z-curated Budweiser Made In America Festival on Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway wrapped up on Sunday (9/1) with sets from Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Miguel, Black Hippy (aka Kendrick Lamar/Schoolboy Q/Ab-Soul/Jay Rock), Diarrhea Planet and Solange. Pictures of those artists are in this post. The second day of the festival also included sets by The Gaslight Anthem, Wavves, AlunaGeorge, The Front Bottoms, Pujol, The Underachievers, and more.
Kendrick Lamar/Ab-Soul/Jay Rock and AlunaGeorge will be playing NYC soon. Nine Inch Nails (with Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and Queens of the Stone Age (with The Kills) will be playing the Jay Z-affiliated Barclays Center later this year.

The So So Glos, Diarrhea Planet, Grand Rapids, LVL UP @ Shea Stadium
The So So Glos and Diarrhea Planet just joined forces for a Mercury Lounge show on Friday (8/30), but if you wanna see them at their rowdiest and sweatiest, Brooklyn DIY venue Shea Stadium is no doubt the place to do it. Plus, two fine local bands open the night: Grand Rapids and LVL UP.
The Underachievers, Sangro, Kendra Morris, Leaf, Laya LaRoche, MillyZ @ Paper Box

Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils, Widowspeak, Soft Metals, Alex Calder @ The Well (Captured Tracks)
Brooklyn label Captured Tracks celebrates its fifth birthday this weekend with a two-day celebration featuring most of the bands on their roster. It's the second and final night, and a pretty killer line-up tonight, too.

Cloud Nothings at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
As discussed, the Jay Z-curated Budweiser Made In America Festival is returning this weekend to Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway (8/31-9/1), and the mostly pop/rap/R&B festival just got a little more, um... punk. Aside from the fact that it already included The Gaslight Anthem (who are pretty much a festival regular by now anyway), the lineup now includes Cloud Nothings, Restorations, Balance & Composure, The Front Bottoms, Diarrhea Planet, PUJOL, and more. And you thought it was weird when Jay Z saw Grizzly Bear.
UPDATE: And one more: Wavves was added to the TBA slot on Sunday.
Other non-punk additions that have happened since we last spoke include Rudimental and The Underachievers. The full schedule was also recently announced, and you can check that out below.
Many of the artists playing Made In America also have NYC or NJ shows this weekend (or soon after), including The Front Bottoms, Diarrhea Planet, Rudimental, The Underachievers, Kendrick, Ab Soul & Jay Rock, AlunaGeorge, Haim, and 2 Chainz.

Diarrhea Planet in Chicago in May (more by Jeff Ryan)
Two bands that Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles is very fond of, Diarrhea Planet and The So So Glos, are teaming up for a NYC show on August 30 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/28) at noon.
Diarrhea Planet are set to release their new album, I'm RIch Beyond Your WIldest Dreams, on August 20 via Infinity Cat. You can check out two garage-rockin' cuts from that album, "Separations" and "Kids," below. They also have a bunch of tour dates with Futurebirds before the Mercury Lounge show, all of which are listed below.
Meanwhile, as usual, you can catch The So So Glos in their hometown of NYC even sooner than that show. They've been added as an opener to the previously discussed Bass Drum of Death show happening at Glasslands on July 9 as part of BDOD's tour that also hits Shea Stadium a day earlier (where members of So So Glos work). The Glasslands show is also with Baked, and tickets for that show are still available.
All Diarrhea Planet and So So Glos dates are listed, along with those DP streams, below...
SXSW is no doubt a great way to see a lot of bands in a short amount of time and can be a lot of fun. But it can also be a little much for some. If you'd like to see many of the same bands but in a more genteel setting, you might be interested in The Savannah Stopover which happens the weekend before SXSW (March 7 - 9) in at various clubs in Savannah, Georgia. Over 100 bands will play, including Of Montreal, Merchandise, Mac DeMarco, Chelsea Light Moving, Hunters, Braids, Delicate Steve, Turbo Fruits, Ducktails and loads more.
JEFF the Brotherhood at ATP NYC 2012 (more by Adela Loconte)
JEFF the Brotherhood are on tour now with Delta Spirit and FIDLAR and that tour hits NYC TONIGHT (11/27) at Irving Plaza. Tickets for tonight's show are still available and we're also giving away a few pairs. Details on how to enter the contest are below.
JEFF spoke to us about their favorite music of the year and gave us a list of their top ten albums. Some of the bands on the list (like Diarrhea Planet and Heavy Cream and Skimask and Cy Barkley) are on their Infinity Cat label, but that doesn't mean we don't believe them. Check out the full list below...
