Meat Puppets (w/ Gibby Haynes) / Soul Asylum @ Bowery Ballroom
There was an Up On The Sun a bit earlier in the set and it lasted over 10 mins. It included Cris and Elmo bumping into the speaker and it almost falling over followed by Cris's best Urkel impression ("Did I do that??). That was some epic shit right there. Curt and Elmo bouncing those spicy riffs back and forth of one another while Cris lays down some, as he called them, direct quote: "Tasty fucking bass licks!". Quite accurate. And Shandon. Shandon has to watch all this unfold in front of his very eyes and keep up with the Kirkwood Guitar Noise Expo. Anyone who can drum in this band is someone of serious talent. Killin' it back there.Soul Asylum and Meat Puppets' co-headlining tour brought them to NYC for two shows: Brooklyn Bowl on 6/20 and Bowery Ballroom on 6/22. At the Bowery show, Meat Puppets (who got the early slot that night) brought out Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes for a cover of Freddy Fender's "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights." Video of that below.
Somewhere after 9:30 Soul Asylum hit the stage and Dave Pirner had on an Aquaman shirt. File that under "Hashtag: Rad". These dudes are way more than just Runaway Train, and this being my third time seeing this band I can say that they've proved that with every set. Somebody To Shove brought the crowd back to life from it's short intermission real quick. Shut Down preceeded two personal favorites of mine, Just Like Anyone and Misery. Such a tight band these dudes are. - [Concert Confessions]
No special guests during Soul Asylum's set, just a lot of favorites from the '80s and '90s, and a few from their upcoming new album. Pictures from the whole night continue below.
In related news, Meat Puppets' Cris Kirkwood recently launched a new podcast. So far there's episodes with Keith Morris, The Black Lips, Neil Hamburger and more.

Mastodon in Chicago in May (more by James Richards IV)
The newest installment of the Adult Swim Singles series comes from Mastodon and Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers, who have teamed up for the track "ATLANTA." If you thought getting Gibby involved would make Mastodon sound a little dirtier than their other recent material, you'd be right. It's a scummy, no-frills rocker and you can stream it below.
Gibby was also on the Q&A at our recent screening of City Gardens documentary Riot on the Dance Floor and then he DJed the afterparty at Bowery Electric. You can check out pictures from the Q&A on Facebook. Gibby's Butthole Surfers bandmates Paul Leary and JD Pinkus have been busy with another sludge metal band this year, Melvins, whose new album (stream a track) they are featured on.

Mastodon at Terminal 5 in May (more by Chris La Putt)
Georgia sludge masters Mastodon are still a few weeks away from releasing their new album, Once More 'Round the Sun (due 6/24 via Relapse). We've already heard one single, "High Road," and they've now given us the studio recording of the other song they've been playing live, 'Chimes at Midnight." It comes with a trippy visual clip, which you can watch/listen to below.
Mastodon are also releasing an Adult Swim Single with Butthole Surfers member Gibby Haynes on September 8.

Along with her on the show was Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes, who Amy (and co-author Steven DiLodovico) interviewed for the book, and whose band was one of Jon Stewart's (who bartended there) first shows at the venue with Dead Kennedys. You can watch a video of Amy, Gibby and Jon discussing the book and past experiences at the venue, below. Also keep an eye out for "Gwar" written on Gibby's arm in honor of the late Oderus Urungus.

Butthole Surfers @ The Scoot Inn
"The idea of Butthole Surfers performing Locust Abortion Technician in its entirety was a curious one, I thought, when I first saw the announcement. I listened to the album carefully and wondered how they were going to pull it off with all that electronica and distortion and sampling and mixing, without it seeming like they were just playing a recording. Few of the songs are melodic tunes that are probably easier to recreate in a live show. It's a great album, but I just had trouble picturing it. It could have been a disaster if they hadn't prepared so well. And prepare they did. It was clear how hard they were working up there to pull off the performance, professionally and technically, and I for one truly appreciated the effort they made.Butthole Surfers played two shows at The Scoot Inn in their official hometown in late October. October 29th's Austin show was advertised as "1st set - Locust Abortion Technician; 2nd set - everything else", and then they played on Halloween with Meat Puppets.
Turns out that playing this album was a genius idea, executed perfectly. It was clear that not only had they been rehearsing, but they orchestrated the songs with a fresh spin. They played the entire album in one long, continuous exhale that gave a shape to the over-arching themes of the music in a way that isn't immediately apparent when you listen to the album." [Gibby n Me]
Now it's NYC's turn. And though there's no word on whether they'll perform an album, Butthole Surfers will play two holiday shows at one Brooklyn venue. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, 11/23, at noon for December 30th at Music Hall of Williamsburg ($35), and December 31st (New Years Eve) ($55). Openers TBA.
Meanwhile go check out some art by Brooklyn resident Gibby Haynes at Kidd Yellin in Red Hook (not far from where he currently resides).

Eugene Hutz & Gibby Haynes
Brazilian songstress Marianni readied Gogol fans - an eclectic mix of hipsters, aspiring gypsy punks and gritty Russians clad in all black - for the sold-out spectacle at Webster Hall on Sunday (12/27). The crowd erupted in elation as she announced a "Russian-Brazilian" song and a buttoned down, almost clean-cut Eugene Hutz emerged to perform a duet.
Later in the night, despite having taken several generous swigs of red wine, Hutz still mustered up the quick-witted coordination to dodge a bra and a roll of toilet paper hastily hurled at him from the depths of the audience. Think Bush Iraqi shoe style if Bush had a handlebar mustache, an acoustic guitar and boasted 1% body fat. In a nod to his motherland, Hutz did accept a Ukrainian flag that had been waving wildly in the crowd and draped it over his shoulders. He also managed to stick his head through the t-shirt of Gibby Haynes from Butthole Surfers who unexpectedly emerged from backstage to perform "I Don't Give a Fuck" alongside Hutz.
If Gogol Bordello is the circus then Hutz is the fearless ringmaster. Building off his raw energy and emotion, the band always manages to whip the expectant crowd into a frenzy. I've never left a show without tapping my foot wildly and wanting to punch up my wardrobe with purple. This time was no exception.
Gogol Bordello continue their three-night run at Webster Hall tonight/Monday (12/28) and Tuesday (12/29). More pictures from Sunday night, including one of the setlist, below...
Soulsavers will follow the August 18 release of their third full-length album, Broken, with a headlining North American tour that kicks off September 6 in Portland, OR.The NYC show on the tour will take place at Bowery Ballroom on September 22nd (assuming it doesn't get cancelled first). Tickets for the NYC show go on sale at noon. All dates below...
Broken features the return of Mark Lanegan [Queens of the Stone Age, Screaming Trees] on vocals and includes duets with Spiritualized's Jason Pierce ("Pharaoh's Chariot"), Faith No More frontman Mike Patton ("Unbalanced Pieces") and Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers ("Death Bells"). Also appearing on the album are Richard Hawley (backing vocals on "Shadows Fall"), Australian newcomer Red Ghost (Rosa Agostino) and studio bassist Martyn LeNoble (Porno For Pyros, Jane's Addiction).
Joining Machin and Lanegan on the road will be guitarist Rich Warren [Spiritualized] and bassist Martyn LeNoble [Porno For Pyros, Janes Addiction].
The Lemonheads have signed to Brooklyn, NY-based The End Record and will be releasing their long-awaited covers collection, Varshons, on June 23, 2009.With that record on the way, the Lemonheads and Evan Dando have a summer of gigs scheduled for the UK, Europe and North America. Those shows include a stop at the Bowery Ballroom on Thursday, June 25th. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday, April 29th at noon. General sale starts Friday, May 1st at noon.
Varshons was produced by Gibby Haynes [ringmaster of the Butthole Surfers], mixed by ex-Cornershop guru Anthony Saffery, and features [Evan] Dando along with Vess Ruhtenburg (bass) and Devon Ashley (drums). The collection is filled with strange bedfellows - from G.G. Allin to Texas troubadour Townes Van Zandt and garage rockers The Green Fuz. The Lemonheads make each track their own, with help from actress Liv Tyler, singing back up on Leonard Cohen's "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye," and Kate Moss, who sings over the dance groove of Arling & Cameron's "Dirty Robot." Also featured on lead guitar and backing vocals throughout most of the album is John Perry, on loan from The Only Ones. [press release]
Dando's last proper gigs were part of a short solo tour in December 2008. That stopped in Hoboken and Brooklyn. Since then, he's been spotted around town. One appearance took the form of an impromptu show with record producer Gibby Haynes at Gramercy Park Hotel's Rose Bar...
On March 15, former [?] Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando joined Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers onstage for a brief but sweet four-song set.All tour dates, with Varshons track list and art, below...
"You cocky-ass motherfuckers can suck my fucking dick," Mr. Haynes told the crowd of pretty men in velvet jackets and handsome ladies in slinky black dresses, who seemed largely disinterested in the music that night. "Pay attention to Evan Dando!" [NY Observer]
DOWNLOAD: Moon & Moon - Act II : Hands of a Man (MP3)
Back in 2006 it seemed that Devendra Banhart was involved in a new project called Moon and Moon. That is still true, but Devendra is not really the focus anymore - just one of the many guest participants...in a new rock opera...
Reflections of timeless struggle, self-fulfilling prophecy, and age-old triumph, with flashes of modern affectation. A fluid and evolving seven-act performance; an epic tale of angst, hunger, tragedy, failure, and ultimately, hope. The dramatic opening of this musical / avant-theatre piece begins with the young voice of our seven year old narrator. She describes in 2 short lines what we are about to witness: seven perspectives of one king's war with himself. Moon & Moon provides the framework of a journey through an eternal human battle, borrowing from religious heritage and a colorful quilt of belief that draws upon the root myth of our collective humanity. Our story re-creates an archetypal battle that is not only historical fiction, but our own contemporary fact which exemplifies our self-destructive nature. Through the journey of witnessing a different character's perspective in each act, our king comes to the realisation that he is not only the walls which he has built, but the walls that have been destroyed by his own hand and command.VII Acts of an Iron King was released by La Société Expéditionnaire on Nov. 11, 2008. Act II is available for download above. All seven acts are listed below. The full list of "players" is as follows:
Contributions by members of An Albatross, Lewis & Clarke, Barkus Born and Stephonik Youth with guest appearances by Devendra Banhart, Gibby Haynes, and Bat For Lashes.
Will Lemon, Steven Kurtz, Jay Hudak, Lou Rogai, Brother James Barbee, Ed Klinger, Louis Schwadron, Geoff Vick, Melanie Moser, Elizabeth Louise Tordis Gagnes, Paula Henderson, Eve Miller, Katie Porter, Matthew Boynton, Ivan Berko, Olivia Galarza, Stephonik Youth, Gibby Haynes, Devendra Banhart, Natasha Khan, Julian Rogai, Tom Asselin, Lauren Tralala, Zumi Rosow, Jane HirshipsThe record release party for this new album is happening today (Sunday, December 14, 2008) at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. I don't know too much about the show, who will be there, etc, but I think at least that Moon & Moon will be joined by Gibby Haynes (who also played a show at Warsaw on Friday). Wet Ropes and DJ Megan Awesome are also on the bill according to the venue. More pictures (and the act list) below...
Butthole Surfers @ Webster Hall, NYC - July 29, 2008 (Jonny Leather)
According to the Butthole Surfers' site, "The reunited lineup of Gibby Haynes, Paul Leary, Jeff Pinkus, King Coffey and Teresa Taylor will be playing all upcoming dates." And though they don't have the show they're playing on December 12th at Warsaw in Brooklyn listed there, I'm guessing it still applies especially since that's who played their last NYC show which was at Webster Hall. Black Dice open the upcoming Brooklyn show and tickets are on sale (thx all). All dates below...
Gibby Haynes & Geneis P-Orridge DJing @ Market Hotel (more by Lori Baily)
I'm not at a computer where I can upload any pictures right now, so this post will be limited, but I just thought I'd say something about the Butthole Surfers show that ended less than an hour ago here at Webster Hall in NYC (July 29, 2008).
After playing for almost an hour and a half, Gibby Haynes got mad at the sound guy who was on the side of the stage - something about not turning up the monitors. I don't know his name, but the sound guy was one of the Bowery Presents regulars. Gibby walked over and punched him and/or threw a bottle at him. Next thing you know security escorts Gibby off the stage mid-song. Nobody really knew what was going on. The band continued to play for at least one more song, and then left in a proper manner with lots of applause and high fives to the front row. Everyone started going crazy (in a good and drunken way), demanding an encore. It's not often you hear the crowd actually scream for a band to come back. We're all so spoiled. We just assume they always will. Of course there was the confusion about the way Gibby made his exit, and that was probably why people were chanting "Gibby" even louder and longer than usual.
The only people who came back to the stage though, were big security guards, and the occasional School of Rock kid to clean up some gear. Then all of a sudden Genesis P-Orridge saunters on stage and strangely had people shouting louder, but was also telling people to be silent. Security then pulled Genesis off the stage and more and more security filled it up. Finally the video guy came back to grab his laptop and turn off the projections (which by the way had still been running along with background music that whole time). The lights were also still off. I was close to the video guy and he was one who told me the show was over because Gibby got arrested. I guess he won't be DJing at the afterparty.
update: some in the comments say he wasn't actually arrested, just kicked out.
Lots of cups were hurled at the stage. One security guard manhandled a kid who jumped on stage to get a selist during the commotion. Otherwise, a riot was avoided and everyone (including lots of very drunk people) (especially the guy from Texas) soon exited pretty orderly and peacefully. Awesome show (I hope the sound guy is okay and Gibby doesn't spend too much time in jail).
Butthole Surfers @ The Forum in London - July 26, 2008 (mark landells)
Paul Leary is now playing all shows in the US and Europe this summer (!!!). This completes the classic line up of the band from the 80s along with Gibby Haynes, King Coffey, Jeff Pinkus and Teresa Taylor. Joining the band on these shows will be members of the Paul Green School of Rock All Stars, creating a formidable psychedelic monster onstage. [Butthole Surfers]Butthole Surfers, Webster Hall, tonight (July 29, 2008).
The Anal Obsession is really just a database of Butt shows. This show is in fact NOT a School of Rock show, It is being billed as a regular Butthole Surfers show. And before anyone asks, no one is quite sure if Paul Leary will be playing or not.King Coffey has not said anything about that. But hell run to get tickets to this folks. Jeff Pinkus is back on bass. This should be a fucking awesome eveningTickets are on sale for a July 29th show at Webster Hall in NYC. All dates below....
