Ty Segall w/ Ex Cult, MHOW, 2/2/2012
Keeping up with the moshers, stage divers, and crowd-surfers was only half the battle. When you weren't slipping on spilled beer on the floor, or fending for your life, you also had to remember to enjoy the show that Ty Segall and his band put on. They played for a solid hour, banging out rocking tune after rocking tune. They were relentless, and it [bled] out into the crowd. -[We All Want Someone To Shout For]Ty Segall and Ex-Cults played their second of two shows in NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday night (2/2), joined by Brooklyn wild childs K-Holes. Pictures from the show are in this post, including an on-stage collaboration between the touring partners. The pair also blessed Webster Hall on Friday with special guest Mac DeMarco (2/1, pictures).
If you missed it yesterday, Ty Segall Band bassist Mikal Cronin released the first track from his upcoming Merge debut.
Lots more pics and the setlists from that snowy Saturday night in Brooklyn are below.

Ty Segall / Mac DeMarco @ Webster Hall, 2/1/2012
Ty Segall's current tour with Ex Cult rolled into town over the weekend for two shows, the first of which happened Friday (2/1) at Webster Hall. If Ty and his band weren't such fierce performers, they may have been upstaged by the antics of Mac DeMarco and his band, whose onstage shenanigans (wacky voices, push-ups, covering Limp Bizkit) are becoming the stuff of legend.
Before the Webster Hall show, Mac Demarco played Pitchfork's offices and you can stream that below. He'll be back for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 1 with Naomi Punk and Calvin Love and tickets (only ten bucks) are on sale now.
Ty went on to play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (2/2). More pictures from Webster Hall below...

Ty Segall just released a video for "Thank God for the Sinners," the stomping lead s the lead track off last year's great Twins. In the clip, he gets a hand (and a foot, and a few torsos) from some anonymous folk. Do watch to the jaw-dropping end. Video is below.
Ty hits the road this weekend for a tour with Ex-Cult that lands in NYC on February 1 at Webster Hall with Mac Demarco on the bill as well, and then the recently added Feb 2 show at Music Hall of Williamsburg that also has K-Holes playing. Tickets for both shows are still available.
Ty's added a few dates in other cities as well. His updated tour schedule and the new video, below...

Mac Demarco @ CMJ 2012 (more by Tracy Allison)
Mac Demarco, whose second album, II, made more than a few Best of 2012 lists (including NME and Pitchfork), will be in the NYC area next month for a couple shows. He's been added to Ty Segall's Webster Hall show on February 1 that also features Ex-Cult. Tickets are still available to that one. Mac will also be playing Bard College the next night (2/2). Mac has no other announced shows at the moment.
Speaking of Ty Segall openers, BV Austin just announced that OBN IIIs will support locally in Austin, before heading out on a tour that includes them opening two California shows that Ty's new project Fuzz are playing.
Back in December, Mac played Le Guess Who? Festival in Utrecht, Holland and there's video footage from his set below.
Ty Segall and his band, unsurprisingly, ripped their performance of "You're the Doctor" on last night's episode of The Late Show with David Letterman, their network television debut. (They made their cable debut on Conan a few weeks back.) He also works in a "GO VOTE!" at the end there too. If you missed it, check out video from the performance, to which Letterman reacted "Remember kids, don't neglect your studies." Video is below and that comes from his new album, Twins, which is out now and his third LP of 2012.
While that will probably tide you over for a bit, there is no replacing seeing Ty Segall's live show in person. His seemingly-endless tour is will soon hit Europe, returning to North America for West Coast in December. He'll be back on theEast Coast with Ex-Cult in the New Year. Webster Hall gets the look on February 1 and tickets are still available.
Letterman video and all current dates are listed below.
