The Wailers @ The Paramount - 1/20/13
The Wailers, Bob Marley's backing band who now tours being led by longtime bassist Aston Barrett, are on tour now performing their 1979 album, Survival, in its entirety plus a set of hits afterwards. The tour stops in NYC on Thursday (1/24) at Brooklyn Bowl for a show with Top Shotta Band. Tickets for that show are available. All remaining dates are listed below.
The tour also stopped in Long Island over the weekend for a show at Huntington's Paramount on Sunday (1/20) with Groundswell and Frank Viele. We caught that one and pictures from it are in this post. Though they're obviously without Bob Marley, our photographer said that the band is still a ton of fun to see and their hits-filled set which had songs like "Redemption Song," "I Shot the Sheriff," "Jamming," and an extended version of "Exodus," had everyone on their feet and dancing.

The two-day benefit for Lucinda's Kids at Bowery Electric begins today (4/29) with Marah, Jesse Malin, Willie Nile, Jimmy Gnecco, Dave Milone, Jim Boggie, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Ptter Ericson Stakee.
H.R. of Bad Brains plays night two, Monday, of that Manhattan benefit, but first he'll headline a Brooklyn show of his own at Public Assembly tonight (4/29) with support from Paranoid Social Club, The WonderMics, Groundswell, Matt Pless, and Jay Samel. Tickets are on sale.
The show is one of a few notable events at Public Assembly in the coming months. Xeno & Oaklander will headline Public Assembly on May 11th with David J (Bauhaus), Frank (Just Frank), and DJ sets by CREEP and Todd Pendu. Tickets are still available. Xeno & Oaklander are currently touring in the Midwest.
Also going down in the near future at Public Assembly, Idiot Glee (who we profiled last year) will play with Nick Diamonds (of islands), Celestial Shore, and DJ Udbhav on May 11th. $8 gets you in. Idiot Glee recently posted a new video for "That's All For Everyone" which is viewable below. The track comes from the band's Don't Go Out Tonight 7" and is a cover of Fleetwood Mac. Pick up a copy.
Public Assembly will host The X-Ecutioners, Da Beatminerz and "special guests TBA" alongside resident DJs Total Eclipse and Gen.Erik on May 3rd. Details, including cost, are forthcoming but prepare for a night of jaw-dropping turntablism.
