Hundred V

Austin band Hundred Visions travel in the same circles as neighbors OBN IIIs and make a similar, if poppier, guitar racket. This week the band just released their second album, Spite, via Wau Pau and you can stream it via Rdio below. You can also check out the horror-themed video (a lot of that going around today, hmm) for single "You're Gonna Cut Me Loose" that plays like a lost, warped VHS rental from 1991. It makes its premiere in this post and you can watch it below.

While Hundred Visions have no tour plans at the moment, if you're heading to Austin next week for Fun Fun Fun Fest, they'll be playing a couple shows during that, including a Burger Records presented FFF Fest Nites show, and another with Thee Oh Sees, Jack Name and Warm Soda. Dates are listed, along with the video album stream and flyer, below..

Archers of Loaf at Bowery Ballroom 4/26/12
Archers of Loaf

Archers of Loaf teamed up with fellow reunited '90s Chapel Hill band/Merge labelmates Pipe for a NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on 4/26 with Hundred Visions. The show was one of two in NYC for Archers of Loaf, who also played MHOW on 4/29 with Titus Andronicus and Sun Ladders. Archers of Loaf played a solid mix of material off all four of their full lengths and reached into other parts of their back catalog as well. Here's what My Old Kentucky Blog had to say about the show:

A strong performance of "You and Me" built momentum into a one-two punch from 1996 release All the Nation's Airports, "Distance Comes in Droves" and "Scenic Pastures," which launched a sing-along that pretty much continued for the rest of the show. The vibe reached a fever pitch for "Audiowhore," which gave way to the happiest moshers I've seen. No rudeness, just a group of fans hyped up and grateful to bask in the raw, lively goodness the Archers are known for.

Their songs sounded just as fresh today as when they were released in the 1990s. Archers of Loaf are very much in good form, proving good rock doesn't have an expiration date.

Tickets are now back on sale (but probably not for long) for the Archers of Loaf show at Bowery Ballroom TONIGHT (4/26) (MHoW show on 4/29 is now sold out).

As discussed, Hundred Visions (insert joke about Eighteen Visions here) will open the show, but direct support will come from Chapel Hill band, and the Archers' Merge label-mates, Pipe.

Pipe is possibly the closest thing Chapel Hill's ever had to an SST band: Their raw, aggressive roar blended the hookiness of early punk with the hard-hewn fits of early American hardcore. There's a loose-limbed abandon to songs like "Sonic Scout" and "Hammer God" that recalls the Circle Jerks, while blasts like "Bowling for Fuckers" just crank up the Marshalls and charge like the Stooges. Their fearless leader and singer, Ron Liberti, is the ringmaster taking listeners down dark hallways and through the banal indignities of life. -[Pipe bio]
Pipe called it quits in 1999, but reunited before (like at Merge XX). The band is on board for a few Archers of Loaf shows and will also play Hopscotch this year, joining an eclectic lineup of everything from Altar of Plagues to The Jesus & Mary Chain.

Check out some Pipe material and all tour dates below.

White Denim in Austin in January (more by Tim Griffin)
White Denim

Last month we mentioned that White Denim have an upcoming NYC show happening on April 13 at Bowery Ballroom. It's since been announced that the show is part of a full tour which also includes a late show happening that same night at Bowery Ballroom and a Hoboken, NJ show happening one day later at Maxwell's (4/14). Tickets for the early show at Bowery Ballroom are still available, tickets for the late show are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (3/2) at noon, and tickets for the Maxwell's show are on sale now.

Fellow Austin band Hundred Visions are opening a number of dates on the tour including the early show at Bowery Ballroom (4/13), but no openers have been announced yet for the late show or the Maxwell's show. They also play one of our free day parties at 'Hotel Vegan' at SXSW and also open for Archers of Loaf at Bowery Ballroom on 4/26 with Pipe. Tickets for that show are still available.

Yellow Ostrich @ Knitting Factory
Yellow Ostrich

As far as BrooklynVegan shows were concerned, we started out this year's CMJ in a lowkey manner with a free Thursday day show at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. We Were Promised Jetpacks, announced that same day, headlined the show that began with a set by Yellow Ostrich at 12:30pm.

Though they didn't play acoustic like they did the night before at the FatCat CMJ showcase at Mercury Lounge, WWPJ mixed it up by performing as a three-piece since one of their members wasn't in town yet. Expect a four-piece at Webster Hall and other dates of their tour. Austin's Hundred Visions played their 2pm set despite their 15 passenger van being stolen from its parking spot in Williamsburg the night before. Luckily most of their gear was not in it at the time.

The whole day looked like this:

12:30 Yellow Ostrich (Barsuk)
1:15 Still Corners (Sub Pop)
2:00 Hundred Visions (unsigned)
2:45 Forest Fire (FatCat)
3:15 BOBBY (Partisan)
4:00 Main Attrakionz (Mishka)
5:00 We Were Promised Jetpacks (FatCat)
Those in attendance also enjoyed free beverages courtesy of HobNob Wine and PBR, and free snacks courtesy of popchips and Raw Revolution.

Thanks everyone who stopped by. Here are some pictures. More below...

Just hours before doors (noon!), we are excited to announce the addition of Scottish band We Were Promised Jetpacks to our free all-ages day party happening today (10/20) at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Don't forget (for those of you that are 21+) we'll also be serving free HobNob Wine and PBR.

Maybe you caught WWPJ play an acoustic set alongside Forest Fire last night at Mercury Lounge? How was it? They kick off a tour with Bear Hands that includes a HEADLINING show at Webster Hall (!) in less than a week (Webster tickets are still on sale).

Listen to most of the bands playing this party via our Spotify Playlist. Get there early for Yellow Ostrich who reportedly killed it at Brooklyn Bowl last night.

Nothing like waiting for the last minute! Please join us for a somewhat low key affair this Thursday (10/20) afternoon at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn for an all ages, FREE, afternoon show featuring:

12:30 Yellow Ostrich (Barsuk)
1:15 Still Corners (Sub Pop)
2:00 Hundred Visions (unsigned)
2:45 Forest Fire (FatCat)
3:15 BOBBY (Partisan)
4:00 Main Attrakionz (Mishka)
That's six free bands (and we might add one more). No RSVP required. Just show up.

UPDATE: The Phantom Family Halo has sadly cancelled due to a family emergency. Yellow Ostrich has stepped in to take their place though!

AND to sweeten the deal (literally), we'll be serving free wine to those 21-and-over courtesy of HobNob Wines (who give away free MP3s on their Facebook page).

Prefer beer? We'll also have free PBR while supplies last.

You'll also be able to snack on free popchips and Raw Revolution bars while you watch the show or hang out in the venue's front bar.

Get there early because first 25 people in the door will also receive a rare BrooklynVegan t-shirt! (not many of these exist - we sold them for charity at CMJ last year).

We're getting a little techie this year too and have partnered with Spotify (our official official digital music service partner) and Sony Bloggie (our official video partner) for all BV CMJ events including the two TBA ones happening at Public Assembly on Friday & Saturday. Stay tuned for a BV video series coming after CMJ with highlights, interviews and special performances from the week (all filmed on a Bloggie). Listen to a playlist that contains four of of the six artists playing this show on Spotify now (Phantom Family Halo's recently-released four-song EP they did with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy included). .Stay tuned for more Spotify playlists throughout the week too.

Thanks also to Knitting Factory Records & Partisan Records for helping make this happen, and thanks to Zach Jaeger (Tonally Dude) for the flyer you see above. See you Thursday! Meanwhile check out Still Corners' video for "Wish" below...
