Toubin

Mr. Jonathan Toubin says:

Every October I press "record" and lay down an improvised live unedited mix of some of the most supremely spooky goofy stuff ever buried into wax. 100% culled from the secret history of haunted novelties, most of the recordings here, like the mummies of their lyrics, are long forgotten relics. But unlike the mummified pharoahs, these were all unknowns in their day. You can help give these monsters the justice that they deserve by bringing them back to life with me! Download this onto your iPod or iPad or iPhone or i-whatever! Play it at your work or Halloween party or laptop DJ gig! I don't know if anyone's gonna be scared but your unique party music will be the envy of your family, friends, and neighbors! Not really... But one can't live on "The Monster Mash" and "Thriller" alone! Also, If you're a fan of these lost artifacts of our greatest national holiday, escape from your dwellings so we can give these undead exquisite corpses a new pulse on the dance floor! I'll be serving hours of these dark delicacies and dozens more at The Haunted Hop at NYC's Brooklyn Bowl on October 27 and New Orleans' Siberia on October 30. Then these little monsters will all scurry back into their tombs.

Love and candy corns,
Jonathan Toubin

Acid Problem at Tommy's Tavern, August 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Acid Problem

Acid Problem's noisy brand of hardcore tips its hat to 80s punk, squealing Sub-Pop/Am-Rep and punk favorites like the late-great Cold Sweat, Kim Phuc or Slices. Live, the NYC crew is a force to be reckoned with and their new self-titled EP ain't no slouch either. Check it out in full below. Limited to 311 copies (clearly a nod to the greatest band ever) (not really) on vinyl, pick up yours via 16oh Records.

Acid Problem have a single show as themselves (I'll explain in a minute) on their calendar so far, at Da Bath Haus in New Brunswick on October 13. There they'll be joined by Brain Slug, Dipers and Ugly Parts. They'll also appear as the Ramones at Death By Audio as part of their Halloween covers show on 10/31. If you can't make it out to NJ, check out their recent live appearance on WFMU as an indicator of their live show, and look below for some video as well.

Live video and that stream is below.

Dita Von Teese

Most people get dressed up for Halloween but burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese will be taking it off for a three night stand at Gramercy Theatre on Oct. 30 - Nov. 1. The show, titled "Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray" is being MC'd by Murray Hill and also features Dirty Martini, Catherine D'Lish, Selene Luna, Perle Noire and Monsieur Romeo. Tickets are on sale now.

If you're a Top Chef fan, you may have seen Dita (who turns 40 on Friday [9/28]) recently on Top Chef Masters where she turned host Curtis Stone into a giggling schoolboy and displayed serious food knowledge as well. You can watch that clip below.

Meanwhile, for all your burlesque needs, head to the Bell House for the 10th Annual New York Burlesque Festival starting tonight (9/27).

Big Freedia at Santos in May (more by Chris La Putt)
Big Freedia

Big Freedia has been on a tour that was supposed to come to NYC for a Rocks Off cruise in late August, but that show was cancelled due to weather. She's since announced that she'll return to NYC for a show on Halloween (10/31) at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets for that show are available.

The Big Freedia show is one of many Halloween options in NYC, many of which we've already told you about (like Dita Von Teese who we also mentioned today). Some others that we haven't include the Halloween covers show at Death by Audio with Sleepies (as the Pixies), Mr. Dream (as ?), Acid Problem (as the Ramones), Heaven's Gate (as Joy Division), and more TBA; and the 'Monster Mash 7 Halloween Party' at Glasslands, which is being presented by New York Night Train (Jonathan Toubin's NYC dance party) and Alana Amram with DJ Naughty Panther. According to the event page, the "musical guests" are "Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Abba, 60s Girl Group, 90s Medley, The Cramps, New Order, and more." Tickets for that show are available. Any other good ones that we missed?

A list of all Big Freedia dates is below...

Action Bronson at Music Hall of Williamsburg in August (more by Ryan Muir)
Action Bronson

In late August, Action Bronson tweeted, "LA is gonna have a new resident soon," presumably implying that the Queens rapper has plans to move out west. We haven't heard anything about it since, but if he is leaving (or did already), he's still giving NYC plenty of chances to see him. On Friday (9/28) he's playing a Bespoke Group-presented and Hyundai-sponsored show in NYC at Chelsea Market (75 9th Ave) with RL Grime. RSVP is open. Doors are at 9 PM for this 21+ show.

Action Bronson, who just played Beauty Ballroom in Austin, will also be the opening at Cypress HIll's annual "Haunted Hill" show, which happens at Best Buy Theater on October 30, the day before Halloween. Tickets for that show are available. Other Halloween options in NYC include Wold Inferno Friendship Society at Warsaw, Smashing Pumpkins at Barclays Center, and The Misfits annual Halloween show at Highline Ballroom.

In other Action Bronson news, he recently dropped a new Party Supplies-produced song called "It's Me," which you can download above, or stream below, along with a list of all dates.

Smashing Pumpkins at iHeartRadio Theater in June (more by Theo Wargo)
Smashing Pumpkins

Back in June, The Smashing Pumpkins released Oceania, their first full length album since 2007 and first with the band's current lineup of Billy Corgan, Jeff Schroeder, Nicole Fiorentino, and Mike Byrne. Around that time they also played a few shows in support of it including the tiny iHeartRadio Theater show in NYC. Now they're set to take the album to much larger venues on 'The Oceania Tour,' where they'll be performing material from the "new album Oceania as well as their classic songs." The Canadian leg of the tour has already been announced, and the band have revealed the US cities (but not venues and dates) that they'll hit as well. A full list of venues and dates is to come, but meanwhile, we know that they'll be in NYC for a show at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center on Halloween (10/31). (We'll leave you to make holiday/name-appropriate jokes.) Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, August 31 at 10 AM, and Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets on Monday, August 27 through the Citi Private Pass website. VIP tickets will also be available at the Smashing Pumpkins website. A list of all dates and US cities (including Camden, NJ, where the Susquehanna Bank Center is located) is below.

In other news, after recently calling out Radiohead, Billy Corgan took to an interview with PhilStar to call out some of his old favorites, Soundgarden (and of course another mention of Pavement). Billy said:

There are those bands that are essentially coming back only to make money -- playing their old albums, and maybe somewhere in the back of their minds they're thinking there might be a future.

I am not in that business, obviously. I condemn anybody who's in that business but doesn't admit (he's) in that business. When Soundgarden came back and they just played their old songs, great. I was a fan of Soundgarden, but call it for what it is. They're just out there to have one more round at the till; same with Pavement and these other bands.

In related news, ex-Smashing Pumpkin James Iha will be going on his own tour this fall and coming to the NYC area on October 5 at Mercury Lounge (tickets) and October 6 at Maxwell's (tickets).

A list of all Smashing Pumpkins dates and a video of the band playing "The Celestials" at iHeartRadio Theater in June are below.

Warsaw last year (more by Chris Gersbeck)
Warsaw

Warsaw in Brooklyn is usually busy hosting its share of parties that cater to its Polish neighbors, but the venue has recently, once again rolled out a few shows for the concert-going populus... those looking for "where pierogies meet punk". In the next few days the space has three shows laid out for Northside Festival that kick off with Thursday's Ceremony/Citizens Arrest/Royal Headache/Magrudergrind show. Tickets are still on sale or try to get in to this, and all Northside Festival shows, with your Northside badge Meanwhile you can also catch Royal Headache at Cake Shop tonight (6/13).

As also previously mentioned, POP Montreal will present a Northside show with Tinariwen with Buke & Gase and Piers Faccini on June 15th at Warsaw (tickets are on sale). The appearance is one of only three scheduled for the band on the East Coast thus far, as they'll spend the bulk of the summer touring Europe. Tour dates are below.

Starfucker have only two dates on their current tour schedule, but one of those will feature Yawn and will go down in Brooklyn as part of Northside on Sunday, June 17 at Warsaw. Tickets are on sale. Both of their dates are listed below.

Warsaw also has a couple of not-Northside shows as well, including Leftover Crack with Crackbox and more TBA on July 8th (tickets) and World Inferno Friendship Society will play their annual Hallowmas show (on Halloween) at the venue (tickets). Meanwhile you can also catch World/Inferno this weekend in Asbury Park.

--

Reminder: though neither are at Warsaw, BrooklynVegan will host two Northside Festival shows on Friday (6/15): the MHoW show with Frankie Rose, Caveman, Hume and Fort Lean (tickets) as well as the BrooklynVegan-BBG/Brutal Panda show with Harkonen, The Atlas Moth, Fight Amp and Whores (tickets).

All Tinariwen and Starfucker dates are below.

Moogfest

"One needn't be among the electronic music faithful to take away positive feelings toward Moogfest, Asheville's yearly electronic mecca. Since migrating from a single-night event in New York City to what was arguably the cradle of electronic music innovation after being settled by Robert Moog, Moogfest has been as edifying as it is entertaining. Few festivals defy their attendees to completely reassess how they listen to music in the way that a weekend at Moogfest does. The gray matter-frying, booty-shaking synth jams raged until early morning all across downtown Asheville, but oftentimes the lessons in musical futurology were just as fulfilling." [Yes Weekly]
Moog Fest 2011 continued on Saturday, 10/29, in North Carolina, this time featuring appearances from Crystal Castles, The Flaming Lips, Amon Tobin, Suicide, Battles, St. Vincent, Toro Y Moi, and many, many others, but no YACHT, who were forced to cancel their appearance due to flight problems in Mexico. Pictures from some of the artists on that second day are in this post (first photo set HERE), and continue below...

The Black Angels

"We got our name from the Velvet Underground song "The Black Angels Death Song." As far as touring with bands with "black" in their names- The Black Keys and Black Rebel Motercycle Club being the two off the top of my head, it was really amazing to be able to tour with those bands. We'd always been big fans of them and when the opportunity presented itself to tour with these bands for the first time, I was like "wow, awesome." Obviously with Black Mountain as well. It wasn't until our first tour was booked that I'm like "man, we keep playing with these Black bands."" - Alex Maas
No black tourmates this time around, but the The Black Angels did have a nice mix of openers over the course of their 3-day Halloween run at Music Hall of Williamsburg which came to end on Monday night (10/31). We have pictures from the second show (10/30), which was with Spindrift and Dead Meadow (other Brooklyn show openers included Exit Music, Golden Animals and Psychic Ills). Spindrift dressed up that night, but the headliners saved their costumes for Halloween.

More pictures from the Sunday show below...

2011 NYC Halloween Parade

"What's happened to Halloween? The celebration of all things sugary has turned sour: dentists are colluding to pay kids for their candy. GreatSchools, an education website, has gone so far as to proclaim trick-or-treating booty an "unmitigated disaster for parents trying to protect their children from OD'ing" on sugar, and offers parents tricks for handling the "upcoming tsunami of sucrose."

In online forums, moms trade tips for keeping sweets away from kids without their cluing in. One mom says she partners with neighbors to supply trick-or-treaters with only pre-approved (read: yucky) treats. Other parents are more openly Scroogey: one mom torments her kids by forcing them to hand out the candy they collected earlier in the evening to trick-or-treaters who show up later on their doorstep. Yet another mother invokes the "Great Pumpkin," who swoops down tooth-fairy-style, removing Milk Duds and leaving toys and books in their stead.

I'm unclear what's so great about this. My kids, at least, have no shortage of toys or books; they do have a dearth of candy, though, which is precisely why Halloween is so great. It's specifically because we don't let them gorge on Twix bars the rest of the year that their spooky stash is so special." [TIME]

Here's another set of pictures from the 2011 Village Halloween Parade (first set HERE). They continue below...

2011 NYC Halloween Parade

The streets crawled with spooky sights, from floating eyeballs and skeletons to Occupy Wall Street protesters dressed as budget axes, for the annual Halloween parade Monday.

As in years past, current events made their presence felt, as a contingent of about 200 anti-Wall Street demonstrators joined the 39th annual Village Halloween Parade wearing costumes that reflected their protest against economic inequality. Zombies and pink slips were some of their other themes. They carried signs that said "stop the vampire economy" and "foreclosure is scary." [CBS]

someone dressed as Amy Winehouse for Halloween, Oct. 31, 2011 (by gisellerafful)
Amy Winehouse

Four years later and people are still sending me pictures of themselves dressed like Amy Winehouse for Halloween! They're posting them to Flickr, Twitter, Faceobook, Instagram and everywhere else too. Amy Winehouse will forever be a hot commodity on October 31st, even the same year as her sad and untimely passing (due to alcohol poisoning).

Too soon? Maybe not, but it's definitely been too long since a new Amy Winehouse album was released. So it's a good thing that some of her associates got together and scraped together some songs which they'll be releasing as a new Amy Winehouse album this December! (just in time for Christmas). Cover art and more details on the "previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics as well as a couple of brand new Amy compositions" below...

Mazzy StaRMazzy StaRMazzy StaRMazzy StaR

press release:

Music fans have reason to celebrate today: Californian duo Mazzy Star's first new release since 1996 is available now! Streams of the new single Common Burn/Lay Myself Down appeared last week on the internet and quickly lead to early rave reviews and a coveted "Pitchfork "Best New Track" tag for the sultry stunner, Common Burn. This new single is out on all digital platforms via their own imprint Rhymes Of An Hour Records. A limited edition 7-inch vinyl release will follow in the coming weeks. The band, comprising of Hope Sandoval and David Roback, will perform a string of live shows in early 2012. A full album of brand new material will follow. The music of Mazzy Star has enthralled music fans around the world since their stunning debut She Hangs Brightly in 1990. After releasing another two impressive and captivating albums, So Tonight That I Might See (1993) and Among My Swan (1996), both members spent time working on separate projects as well as working together. The new tracks were recorded in California, London and Norway.
A video of Mazzy Star performing on Jools Holland in 1994, below...

Black Lips

Happy Mischief Night!. Two garage rockin' opening bands and many fans braved the ugly weather in NYC last night (10/29) to get ugly with the Black Lips at the Halloween-themed "Hell at the Hall" extravaganza. Here are some pictures from the night. They continue below...

Halloween

Ahh.. Halloween in the city. An excuse to dress completely odd and get blackout drunk, so people can only remember "that Kenny Powers guy" puked himself. A massive parade... Oh did I mention the fun covers shows that go on?

Death By Audio will host an all ages covers show tonight (10/28) featuring Roky Erickson, The B-52s, Smashing Punpkins, Karp, X-Ray Spex, and The Raincoats as performed by Passive Agressor, Little Victory, Sleepies, Necking and others. $7 gets you in, or save $2 if you wear a costume!

The Acheron will host a night of Motorhead, Misfits, Blitz, White Zombie, and the "K-Rock All-Stars" at the venue on 10/30, featuring members of Tournament, Trenchgrinder, Grudges, and many more.

Speaking of the Misfits, the (sort of) actual band is playing on Halloween in NYC too, at BB King's (tickets). Now that is fucking scary. I'd much prefer to see Danzig Legacy at Hammerstein just two days earlier (10/29, tickets). Misfits are also playing Starland Ballroom TONIGHT (tickets).

If you don't want see either Misfits cover band, you have a THIRD Misfits alternative in The Omelettes of Disease at The Gutter who will join Bad Girlfriend (as The Cramps) and Tiberius (as Spaceman 3) on 10/29. $5 gets you in.

The previously discussed Black Lips/Davila666 show at Webster Hall tomorrow (10/29) is Halloween themed, and so is the "Psychedelic Robot Halloween Party" that same night at El Dorado (976 Grand St. Brooklyn) which will feature Jared Swilley (Black Lips) and AJ (Davila 666) behind the DJ booth. They'll be joined by perfromances from Sundelles, Snack Machine, Puppies, Mick's Jaguar (Rolling Stones covers), Bad Credit No Credit (X-Ray Spex Covers) and other DJ sets from O.J. San Felipe (Xray Eyeballs), Lady Bree, Yvo, Dan Meth, and Ben Ritter. As Bill mentioned, the $10 show also boasts "SUPER RAD SPECIAL MUSICAL GUESTS WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO NAME BUT ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT". Word. $10 bones gets you in, and details are at the Facebook page.

Though it isn't a Haloween event technically, it is frightening just the same. Vital Remains, Strong Intention, Prostitution, and Gang Signs will hit Saint Vitus. Tickets are on sale.

Glasslands will host a night of covers on Halloween as well, featuring locals performing Pentagram, B52's, Runaways, Suicide, Slade, Dead Kennedys, Creedence Clearwater Revival and others, followed by a DJ party with Johnathan Toubin. $1 gets you in.

Rocks Off is hosting a pre-Ween Halloween Cruise with Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) on the turntables. Tickets are on sale.

FIXED is having a Halloween bash at Public Assembly on Monday.

And last but certainly not least, expect some dressing up at three Black Angels shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg this weekend including the 10/31 one with Psychic Ills and Exit Music. Don't forget to dress up! Tickets are still available for that show, as well as the 10/29 and 10/30 shows.
