"In early 1973, they were billed to open for the Rolling Stones, but Mick Jagger's visa was rejected from a previous drug conviction and all concerts were cancelled. Later that year the band broke up, with Yamanaka going on to release various solo albums." [Wikipedia]The time is finally here, and it looks like it's actually going to happen. the Flower Travellin' Band will play their first-ever US show at the closed-but-temporarily-reopened Knitting Factory in NYC tonight (3/13). Knyfe Hyts open and tickets are still on sale, and it gets better... The Japanese band have added a 2nd NYC show. They are also playing the smaller Studio at Webster Hall in NYC on Saturday (3/14) with Endless Boogie! Tickets for that one are also on sale. From there they head to Philly, Washington DC, and then Austin for SXSW. The tour poster and all dates below...

Insanely prolific leaders of the NWOFHM (that's New Wave of Finnish Heavy Metal), Circle, have a DVD called Saturnus Reality on the way. It's out March 10th via No Quarter, and you can also catch it at a FREE screening on Friday March 13th at Monkeytown in Brooklyn. Retro-rockers Endless Boogie will DJ the event.
Circle recently dropped the live 2LP Triumph on Fourth Dimension Records. Pick that up here. Before that they released Hollywood which was one of only TWO releases for the Finns in 2008.... slack much? In 2007, Circle released two LPs (including a collaboration with Sunburned Hand Of The Man), two live albums and a seven inch. In 2006 it was two LPs, two live albums, an EP and .... ah you get where I am going with this.
More details on the screening, and a video preview of the movie, below...
Jay Reatard @ MHOW (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Jay Reatard already has a ton of shows scheduled for 2009, but he only has two left to play in 2008. One is New Years Eve at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. The other is this Wednesday, December 17th, at the Wired Store in NYC. It's the same place his friends King Khan and BBQ recently played. The flyer with RSVP info, and all tour dates, below...

The 12 hour Fucked Up show yesterday (10/15) was much more than just a Fucked Up show. Not only, as advertised, were there plenty of special guests over the course of the day, other bands did their own sets while F'd Up took breaks. We were there in shifts. Tim Griffin got there around 11:45pm and stayed until the 2am end. During that time the (comedian) Jeff Jensen project played, Endless Boogie played, and J Mascis returned for a second time. More pictures from that part below...
Earl Greyhound @ All Points West (more by Jefferson)
In additon to the previously announced record-taping shows coming up in September, Earl Greyhound are playing a free show at Southpaw in Brooklyn this Wednesday night (Aug 20, 2008). Smokewagon and Changing Holes are also on the bill.
The Ex with Gétatchèw Mèkurya (renowned Ethiopian saxophone legend), and if that weren't enough, Lincoln Center added two amazing East African/American collaborations to the bill: Either/Orchestra with Mahmoud Ahmed and Alèmayèhu Eshèté, plus Extra Golden.Also free, also thanks to WFMU: The NYC stop on Wire's October tour. September 3rd is the day to get tickets.
Aug 29th @ South Street Seaport:
"Oneida, Endless Boogie + VERY SPECIAL GUEST"
Who is the special guest? I have no idea, but if Endless Boogie can be considered a clue, there's a really good chance it will be a band on Matador Records. Speaking of which, Matador's Yo La Tengo are playing the very last McCarren Pool Party in Brooklyn on Sunday August 24th. That would be kind of cool and weird if Yo La Tengo played the Pool and the Seaport both in less than a week.
That's it for now. Take a look at the free show calendar for much, much more, but not THAT much more because unfortunately the free show season (aka Summer) is soon coming to an end. Summerstage is already done now that Sharon Jones played and actually I just realized that the Bill Withers tribute was the final 'Celebrate Brooklyn' show in Prospect Park this year too.
