My Morning Jacket's Terminal 5 run continued with a complete performance of 2001's At Dawn last night. The band ran through the entire album in sequential order, including the rarely--if ever--played "If it Smashes Down." Many of My Morning Jacket's early songs faded out of rotation after the group's December 2006 shows at San Francisco's Fillmore so "Death Is My Sleezy Pay" (last played 2005), "Hopefully"(last played during a full band performance), X-Mas Curtain (last played 2006), "Just Because I Do" (last played 2004) and "Strangulation!" (last played 2005) were also bustouts.Danzig! Video of that (complete with funny fan commentary), along with the full setlist and more pictures from last night (tonight is their night off - except for Carl), below...
Like Monday night's performance, the members of My Morning Jacket returned for an extended encore that featured covers and B-sides the band played during the At Dawn era. The band's covers ranged from the moody Danzig song "How The Gods Kill" to an extended jam during Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath." [jambands.com]
My Morning Jacket is pleased to announce the openers for their five performances at Terminal 5.The first two nights still have tickets on sale. The last three are currently sold out.
10/18 - The Tennessee Fire - Dungen
10/19 - At Dawn - Hacienda
10/21 - It Still Moves - Elvis Perkins in Dearland
10/22 - Z - Holly Miranda

My Morning Jacket's other upcoming NYC-area date is August 24th at the Izod Center with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers who play MSG with Buddy Guy tonight.
Dungen's other upcoming NYC-area date is September 5th at Kutscher's for ATP NY. Maybe they'll add their own NYC between now and October 18th too. Meanwhile they have plenty of other North American dates scheduled during that time period.

Those Darlins & Deer Tick @ the BV SXSW showcase - Mar 18, 2009
"In a world of emo-boys and reluctant band leaders, Those Darlins, country-punk pals from Murfreesboro, Tenn., had a comically leering sexuality and the kind of abandon that seems scarce these days. Their punk hootenanny sensibility reminds us that you don't have to act serious to be taken seriously. South by Southwest, with its quick set ups and tear downs, is always technically challenged, but when these girls blew an amp, they vamped with the kind of jokes and entreaties that can't be rendered here..... After they borrowed an amp from their friends and tour mates in Deer Tick, they borrowed the whole band as well, with the boys serving as accessories as the girls sang a kind of homage to a bird..."The music portion of SXSW ran from Wednesday to Saturday (most of it). Looking back, it went by so fast. At the same time, it feels like Wednesday was so long ago. For me, it started out with the BrooklynVegan/Solid PR day party on one of the three Emo's stages, and ended right down the block the same day with six bands at the official Brooklyn Vegan showcase (two of the four BV parties this year). Jacob Blickenstaff stopped by both shows, and went a few other places, as you can see in the pictures below...

Opening with the baleful, empathetic harmonies of "Trouble Weighs A Ton," Auerbach brought a naked emotion and a touch of pathos not typically found in his Keys' performance. For the most part, Auerbach's solo set didn't deviate too greatly from The Black Keys' brand of heavy blues....That description is from the Those Darlins, Hacienda, and Dan Auerbach (of The Black Keys) show at Bowery Ballroom on March 3rd.
On "When The Night Comes" and "Goin' Home," Auerbach delves into the doleful acoustic style of the blues, generating earnest pleas from the depths of soul. It's a fine contrast to the menacing stomp of songs like "The Prowl" and "I Want Some More" and reveals Auerbach as more than a one trick pony. When Auerbach follows wherever his reverb-heavy guitar takes him, good things usually happen. Even if he didn't turn the reverb on ultra for "Heartbroken In Disrepair," the superlative song resounded mightily. [Earvolution]
"Dan Auerbach has his first solo album out, but solo is hardly how he presented his music Tuesday night in New York. Backed by San Antonio band Hacienda and Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket chipping in as a second drummer and percussionist, Auerbach was clearly enjoying the give and take he perhaps misses with The Black Keys.....All three bands are at SXSW this week.
...Openers Hacienda hung out in the subway tunnel with us before the show for a bit of chat....Those Darlins were indeed. They won us over and we'll be chatting up the band in Austin at South By Southwest." [Palestra Music]
Those Darlins' schedule includes the official BrooklynVegan SXSW showcase at Club DeVille tonight, (Wed, March 18th) and the My Old Kentucky Blog/Aquarium Drunkard party happening Peckerheads on Sixth the next afternoon.
San Antonio's Hacienda visits Headhunters and The Parish (both tonight) and Emo's Jr on Thursday (3/20).
Also playing in Austin tonight (3/18) is Dan Auerbach at the Parish with Hacienda. More pictures from Bowery Ballroom below...
Those Darlins @ Bowery Ballroom (more by Nathan Miller)
Aside from their apparent taste for fur (that hat?) (and maybe an old jacket?), and the occasional less-than-steller instrumentation and/or singing (it's not always about perfect playing), there's no denying (I'm asking for it with that one) that Those Darlins are an entertaining band. Last night (1/15) at Mercury Lounge, the crowd (myself included) seemed to be enjoying the young trio+drummer's country tunes - they were the perfect way to warm everyone up for Norway's Ida Maria who came up, and tore the place up, next.
Show bookers seem to already know this about Those Darlins. If you haven't noticed, much like the Vivian Girls, this mostly-female band is suddenly appearing on every other (alt-country) bill. To name a few... they've recently played with O'Death, Heartless Bastards, Langhorne Slim, Deer Tick, Boss Hog, and have an upcoming tour scheduled with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys (which has them back at Bowery and Music Hall). Last night they opened for Ida Maria at Mercury Lounge, and TONIGHT (1/16) they play with The Soft Pack (formerly the Muslims) and the Browns at Mercury Lounge (again). Saturday night they play their 3rd NYC show in a row (they're from Tennessee) at Union Pool (also with The Soft Pack).
