Bass Squad are hosting "On the Rocks,' a summer residency at Drom which kicks off with an opening party on Thursday (5/31) at the Manhattan venue. The party is being headlined by Flosstradamus and also features Baauer, Tony Quattro, Mess Kid, and a "secret guest." Tickets are still available. The flier for this show and a video trailer for the summer residency are below.
If you're going to the party on Thursday, it's worth showing up early to catch Brooklyn producer Baauer. HIs single, "Harlem Shake" b/w "Yaow," was released earlier this month as part of Mad Decent imprint Jeffree's free weekly singles. You may have heard "Harlem Shake" on Diplo & Friends' BBC Radio 1 show or on Rustie's Essential Mix. You can grab MP3s of both tracks above or stream them below.

Dark Dark Dark / A Hawk and a Hacksaw
"Eerily soothing piano melodies, smirking accordion lines plucked from a New Orleans carnival, cloudy gang vocal harmonies, and lonely horn bleats inhabit last year's Bright Bright Bright EP and full-length Wild Go (both from Supply & Demand Music). Thus far, the catalogue of Dark Dark Dark could be mistaken for lullabies inexplicably emanating from a deserted lakeside cabin haunted by Tori Amos and Gogol Bordello . . . except that, thankfully, Amos and those affiliated with the Bordello camp are alive and well, and therefore can't haunt anything. [The Phoenix]The A Hawk and a Hacksaw (ft. Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeremy Barnes) / Dark Dark Dark / Pillars & Tongues tour came to NYC for two shows last week - 9/28 at the Bell House and 9/29 at Drom. Pictures from the latter are in this post.
A Hawk and a Hacksaw have since opened for Jeff Mangum as part of ATP at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park on Friday (9/30) and will again in the same venue tonight (10/3)...
Without a word, Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Magnum walked onto the stage of Asbury Park's gilded, enveloping Paramount Theatre Friday night and eased into "Oh Comely," staring straight ahead, singing "soft silly music is meaningful, magical." In the recorded version of that song, at the end, you can hear someone far off exclaim "holy shit!" as if startled - which is just about right.Jeff Mangum's entire Friday setlist, along with more pictures from the non-Mangum NYC show at Drom, below...
Over an hour and 15 minutes, Mangum - performing as part of the three-day ATP I'll Be Your Mirror Festival - was focused and relaxed, sitting on a chair mid-stage. He was flanked by four guitars, bathed in autumn orange lighting and looking especially solitary in the theatre's expanse. Where Bon Iver has traded up in touring accompaniment, Mangum is more at home alone - except, of course, for the rapt, capacity crowd of around 1500. [Rolling Stone]
Vampire Weekend's last release was an Apple iTunes session (recorded this past September at New York's Avatar Studios...
