Turbonegro @ Irving Plaza, 5/18
Turbonegro played Irving Plaza Saturday night (5/18), their only East Coast gig before a short West Coast tour (with Torche opening,) that ends with them headlining Punk Rock Bowling with Bad Religion on May 26. The ever-present Turbojugend jackets illustrated how far people had come -- up and down the East Coast -- to make this show, repping from Boston down to Atlanta.
Turbo opened with "Just Flesh," playing a solid set of classics and songs off the new record, Sensual Harassment. People were streaming over the barricade all night, not letting up until the end of the last song, a furious cover of "Final Solution," by Cleveland punk greats Rocket from the Tombs.
Turbo's Volcom labelmates, NYC's Dirty Fences, opened the show, playing a lot of songs off their new album Too High to Kross. They also closed with a cover that has become a staple of their set, "Can't Tame Me" by the Benders.

Torche at Saint Vitus (more by Harriet Roberts)
On a freezing and snowy Saturday evening (3/2), Torche played Saint Vitus with the garage-y Dirty Fences (who play Cake Shop tonight) and supercrew Argonauts (mems Burnt By The Sun, Municipal Waste, Revocation, East of the Wall). The sold-out show did not feature an appearance from Iron Reagan, who cancelled due to scheduling conflict. More pictures are available at Invisible Oranges.

Turbonegro at House of Vans, Aug 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
No matter where you fall in the debates regarding their new vocalist, if there's one thing that's certain is that Turbonegro still put on a hell of a live show. So far the Norwegian band has mostly European shows in their calendar, a majority of which are in their home country. But the tongue-in-cheek band will hit the US in late May for a string of dates (including Punk Rock Bowling). While details are still emerging, look for Turbonegro at Irving Plaza on May 18 with guest Dirty Fences. Tickets go on presale Thursday (2/28) at 10AM, and regular sale the following day (3/1) at 10 Am.
Dirty Fences WILL play another show though and in the near future. Look for the band to be first of four at Saint Vitus on Saturday (3/2) where they'll join the previously discussed Torche, Argonauts, and last night's guests at StV, Iron Reagan. The show is sold out.
All Turbonegro dates are listed, along with video, below.

Tashaki Miyaki at Glasslands, 8/06/2012
The reach of The Velvet Underground is long and many limbed -- a sound so basic that it never really goes out of style, no matter how many bands ape it. As long as you do it well. Take Los Angeles trio Tashaki Miyaki, who made their NYC debut last night at Glasslands, and put some magic hour West Coast rays on that iconic guitar chug, owing as much to David Roback's many bands (like Rain Parade and Mazzy Star) as Lou Reed.
The band only have about 10 songs to their name at this point, and we got most of the high points, including their terrific new single "Best Friend" and a cover of Guns n' Roses "Sweet Child O' Mine." The latter has also been covered in a similar style by Luna but between the sweet female harmonies (drummer singer Lucy and bassist Dora) and no reliance on the song's signature riff (which Dean Wareham used) it still felt fresh. There are probably not many songs that wouldn't work VU-ized. Tashaki Miyaki definitely do it well and the crowd swayed gently throughout the set.
The band are still in town and will play Pianos tonight (8/7, 9PM) with Diego's Umbrella and Karikartura (tickets). If you haven't checked them out yet, song streams are at the bottom of this post along with more pictures from Takashi Miyaki's Glasslands set.
It was a strange bill Tashaki Miyaki were on last night. Dirty Fences preceded them and brought a sizable crowd with them. The Brooklynites play '70s-ish rock dipping three or four years either side of 1976, be it MC5 or The Damned, and have the sound down pat. They were good but definitely a 180 sonically from the headliners. Ex Cops were in the crowd last night -- now that would be a good double-bill.
Before that it was Boston's Dirty Dishes who seemed to leap straight from 1998 with their coo-to-a-caterwaul singer and sound that stayed just shy of alt-metal. (Not bad, but not my thing.) I only caught the last song of openers Sky Picnic who seemed to be going for 1968 acid rock, complete with headbands and white bell bottoms. New York on a Monday: sometimes it's about who can play, not who's most complimentary.
Photos of Dirty Fences and Dirty Dishes are below, along with more shots of Tashaki Miyaki.
Torche at MHoW (more by Justin Tyler)
Torche will hit the road with the UK's Part Chimp for a string of East Coast dates, according to recent tweets by the band. Though the full tour routing has yet to be revealed, the dates will include an appearance at Mercury Lounge on November 9th with Dirty Fences, and tickets go on sale at noon on 9/16.
US audiences have had limited recording-interaction with noise rockers Part Chimp, who released the bulk of their output on Mogwai's Rock Action Records in the UK. The band will share a split 12" with touring partners Torche in the near future though, according to Part Chimp member Iain Hinchliffe. More details are forthcoming. For now check out some Part Chimp video below...
