DLJ

Earlier today, we mentioned the a couple Coachella sideshows (Brand New/Built to Spill/Desaparecidos and Desaparecidos/Touche Amore/Joyce Manor), and now the full schedule of sideshows is here. There's also one with the reunited Drive Like Jehu, one with the reunited Ride and Eagulls, one with Interpol and Perfume Genius, one with Belle & Sebastian and Mac DeMarco, one with Swans and Angel Olsen, one with Father John Misty and King Tuff, two Jenny Lewis shows, a Cloud Nothings show, a War On Drugs show, a Panda Bear show, and still plenty more.

More details at Goldenvoice's website. Full schedule on the poster below...

Interpol will release El Pintor track "Everything is Wrong" as a 7" on Record Store Day (April 18) that features a new B-side, "What Is What," as well as nifty design by acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey (who did the art to both Antics and El Pintor). Artwork for that is below. The band just released the video for the song which was co-directed by frontman Paul Banks with Carlos Puga. Shot here in NYC, it follows the members on their various daytime routines, though it's clearly a slightly alternate universe. Also look out for a cameo from his girlfriend, '90s supermodel Helena Christensen (who starred famously in Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" video 25 years ago). Watch it below.

As mentioned, Interpol will be playing a Celebrate Brooklyn! show at Prospect Park on July 21. Tickets are currently on BrooklynVegan presale (password: BVINTERPOL) and will go on sale to the general public on Friday (1/23) at noon.

Primavera

The 2015 Primavera Sound Festival goes down in Barcelona, Spain from May 28 - 30.

drowned in sound

UK music site Drowned in Sound is kinda the British equivalent of Pitchfork, albeit with a very strong community aspect to it. They just published their 50 Favourite Albums of 2014 list and while it contains many of the LPs we've been seeing on a lot of these lists, it's a distinctly not-American point of view. Well, at least their #1. Check out the whole list below...

Beverly @ BVCMJ 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)
IMAGE

Beverly played Glasslands last night (12/4), one of the final shows for the venue, a night that also featured TEEN, Charly Bliss, and Scully. Looks like you'll now have at least one more chance to catch them in NYC before 2014 ends as they'll be playing the Kanine Records / Culture Collide Holiday Party which happens Wednesday (12/10) at Baby's All Right. Also on the bill: Public Access TV, plus DJ sets from Kip of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Brandon from Crocodiles, Lio of Kanine Records, as well as, um, this writer. The party is free but you do need to claim tickets via RSVP. Flyer below.

Beverly also recently released a video for "Madora" from their debut album, Careers, and you can watch that below. Singer Drew Citron will also be part of Saturday's Brooklyn Rock Lottery which happens at Baby's All Right and will feature a whole bunch of bands that don't exist yet, made up of members of Au Revoir Simone, Dismemberment Plan, Obits, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Parquet Courts, TEEN, and more. That is sold out -- proceeds go to Harmony Program. The lineup of participating musicians expanded since we last posted, including Brandon Curtis of Secret Machines/Interpol, and the full roster is below.

Rolling Stone

The Best Albums of 2014 lists keep coming, and now Rolling Stone's is out. It's hard to imagine anyone else picking the #1 and #2 they did, but that's Rolling Stone for you. It's also hard to imagine a list placing the new albums from Weezer and the Foo Fighters so high, but smacking buzz band Ought right in between them. And it seems random that YOB comes in at #50 when no other metal album makes the list, not even the critically acclaimed one by Pallbearer or any of the hugely acclaimed returns from veteran bands like At the Gates, Godflesh and Electric Wizard. Also, don't tell Jack White how much higher The Black Keys placed than him.

Check out their top 50 picks for yourself, below...

Interpol
Interpol

Interpol are wrapping up their tour with Hundred Waters in Philly tonight (12/1), having already hit NYC for three sold-out Terminal 5 shows. We already posted pictures of night 1, and now we've got a set of the second show, which happened November 25. This one was with Lip Talk instead of Hundred Waters (who headlined Rough Trade that night) but unfortunately we missed their set. The setlists were pretty similar at all three shows, with a good chunk of their new album, El Pintor (one of NME's favorite albums of 2014), and otherwise focused mostly on their first two. Full setlist below.

Interpol also had Antics cover designer and well-known street artist Shepard Fairey paint a mural in Brooklyn (pictured below) in honor of their single "Everything Is Wrong" from the new album. That single comes with a previously unreleased track, "What Is What," which you can download HERE by typing in "Everything Is Wrong."

Interpol's tourmates Hundred Waters will return to NYC on their 2015 tour.

NME

It's the last week of November and we've hit Best-of List Season. Especially in the UK where we've already seen album lists from Rough Trade, MOJO, Q, and Uncut. Now here's long-running UK weekly NME with their LPs and tracks of the year. Topping the lists are St. Vincent's self-titled album, and Future Islands' omnipresent "Seasons." (Sorry, The War on Drugs, you're slightly lower on the list here.) And just to remind you they are British music magazine, Kasabian figure into both lists. Check out NME's full Top 50 LPs/Tracks of 2014 lists below...

Interpol
Interpol

Interpol, free of snow, brought their tour to NYC for the first show in a sold-out three-night run at Terminal 5 last night (11/24). They're supporting their new album El Pintor, and they played a good chunk of that, otherwise focusing mostly on their first two records, Turn On The Bright Lights and Antics, and only offering a song each from the others. Their tourmates Hundred Waters, also with a new album to support, opened the show. Pictures are in this post.

The three-night run continues tonight, with Hundred Waters going off on their own to headline Rough Trade with support from Mutual Benefit's Jordan Lee (tickets), and Interpol will instead be joined by NYC's Lip Talk at Terminal 5. Interpol and Hundred Waters team up again to conclude the run on Wednesday (11/26). Again, both upcoming T5 shows are sold out. Hundred Waters will also be back on their own on a headlining tour in 2015.

Before Interpol's T5 show, they also performed "Everything Is Wrong" from the new album on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Video of that, with more pictures, Interpol's setlist and a video from T5, below...

Lip Talk

Interpol, who are now successfully free of snowstorm trappage and who made one of Q's favorite LPs of 2014, are set to bring their tour with Hundred Waters to NYC for three sold-out Terminal 5 shows this week, tonight (11/24) through Wednesday (11/26). (They're also on Late Night with Seth Meyers tonight.) As discussed, tonight and Wednesday have Hundred Waters opening but they're not on the Tuesday show. Instead, that show will be opened by NYC's Lip Talk, the band formerly known as Railbird.

Lip Talk, led by the duo of Sarah and Chris Kyle and fleshed out by bassist Derek Leslie (Tiny Hazard, Asobi Seksu) and drummer Ian Chang (Matthew Dear, Body Language), are set to release a new EP in early 2015. We've got the premiere of that EP's shiny synth pop single "Ghost" which you can check out below.

Meanwhile, the night Lip Talk open for Interpol, Hundred Waters headline their own show at Rough Trade (11/25) with a solo set from Mutual Benefit's Jordan Lee (tickets). They also go on a headlining tour in 2015 that brings them back to NYC on 3/5 at MHOW (tickets).

Q Mag

Rough Trade were the first out of the gate with year-end lists but now long-running UK monthly music mag Q has just published their end-of-the-year issue (with cover star Ed Sheeran) which includes their Top 50 LPs of 2014. The War on Drugs' Lost in the Dream comes in at #1. Have you made your list yet? Check out the rest of Q's favorite albums of 2014 below...

But if it's not one thing it's another...

PREVIOUSLY: Interpol and Hundred Waters have been stuck in a snowstorm since Tuesday morning.

Interpol

Interpol and Hundred Waters are on tour together, though they actually haven't played since their Columbus, OH show on Monday (11/17) because they've been trapped inside their snowed-in bus outside of Buffalo since around 4 AM Tuesday morning. Last night's Toronto show was cancelled, as the band posted on their website:

Our bus is trapped in a snowstorm just outside of Buffalo. We haven't moved our position on the road in over nine hours. Unfortunately, we'll have to cancel tonight's concert at the Kool Haus. We were greatly looking forward to the show but the big bad winter has come early this year. We will be informing people of a new date as soon as we can.
And now Thursday's Montreal show is cancelled too...
It's with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our show tomorrow night in Montreal. We've been stranded in a snowstorm outside of Buffalo for over 40 hours and still don't know when we'll be able to move from our current position. We're disappointed that we won't be able to visit as scheduled but we'll make it up to you, Toronto and Montreal. We love you guys. We were really looking forward to the shows.
As of this post, they're still stuck around 9 PM on 11/19, over 40 hours since they were able to move. As Stereogum points out, guitarist Daniel Kessler and touring member Brandon Curtis have been live tweeting the whole thing...

Hundred Waters posted a few themselves...

Assuming they get out of there at some point, the tour is set to hit NYC on 11/24, 25 & 26 at Terminal 5 (all sold out). Hundred Waters are on nights 1 and 3, but play their own show with Mutual Benefit (solo) on 11/25 at Rough Trade (tickets).

Hundred Waters were also supposed to appear on 'Letterman' tonight but that's been cancelled too, and rescheduled for February. They also just announced a 2015 tour.

100 Waters

Hundred Waters are currently on a tour with Interpol which has them opening two of the three sold-out Terminal 5 shows (11/24, 25 & 26) and also playing their own smaller show on November 25 at Rough Trade which Mutual Benefit main man Jordan Lee was recently added to (tickets).

They've now announced a headlining tour for early 2015 which brings them back to NYC on March 5 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale at noon on Friday (11/21).

The Interpol/Hundred Waters tour hit Chicago last week. Check out more pictures (like the one above) from that show over at BV Chicago. Updated dates are listed, with their recently-released video for "Out Alee" from this year's The Moon Rang Like A Bell, below...

Big Noble

Big Noble is a collaboration between Interpol's Daniel Kessler and sound designer Joseph Fraioli and they will release their debut album, First Light, on February 3 via their own Affiliates Sound imprint on Kobalt Label Services. That's the cover art above and the first single, "Peg" (not a Steely Dan cover), is out now. The soundscape-y instrumental definitely floats in the same atmosphere as Interpol and you can stream it below.

You may have experience Big Noble's sound installation, "Sounds of NYC," as part of Sonos Studios NYC earlier this fall. Kessler will be here in NYC at the end of the month for Interpol's three sold-out shows at Terminal 5.

Hundred Waters at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
100 waters

Hundred Waters will soon kick off their tour supporting Interpol which includes the two sold-out Terminal 5 shows (11/24 & 11/26). There's still no opener announced for the third, not sold out T5 show on 11/25, but we can probably assume it's not Hundred Waters, as they'll be headlining their own NYC show that day at Rough Trade NYC. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (10/22) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

In related news, Interpol just put the video for "My Desire" from their new album, El Pintor. The video was directed by Markus Lundqvist and can be watched below...

ACL Festival - Weekend 2 - Day 2 - Saturday - 10/11/2014

ACL Fest Weekend 2 continued on Saturday (10/11) after kicking off a day earlier. We caught sets from Eminem, Skrillex, Broken Bells, Major Lazer, Lana Del Rey, Icona Pop, The Head and the Heart, My Brightest Diamond, Interpol, Polica, Mac DeMarco and a few others, and pictures of those are in this post. There was a short rain delay with anything before 12:30 getting cancelled, but otherwise the second Saturday of the fest went off without a hitch.

Stay tuned for pictures of weekend 2 day 3. Check out weekend 2 day 1 pictures HERE and all three days of weekend 1 pictures HERE. More of weekend 2 day 2, below...

ACL Festival Day 2 - 10/4/2014

...but then crowd density reared its ugly head again with the battle of the headliners: EDM master Skrillex and established rapper Eminem. From the midway point of the festival grounds, dozens of teens were spotted running full tilt in the direction of Skrillex from Major Lazer's set, while older generations seemed to migrate toward Eminem. Skrillex kicked off his bass-heavy dubstep right on time, dousing the electric crowd with lasers. In the meantime, Slim Shady got a slower start, getting underway nearly 10 minutes late and with a video intro that was lost on tens of thousands who just weren't close enough to hear. Including this one, who instead threw in the towel and headed for home. [Sound Spike]
The first weekend of 2014's Austin City Limits Festival is now over, with the city gearing back up for a second round this weekend. Although the festival's second day was marred by some intermittent showers, killer sets were still plentiful from Eminem, Skrillex, Lana Del Rey, Major Lazer, Interpol, Broken Bells, tUnE-yArDs, Mac DeMarco, Polica, My Brightest Diamond, The Rosebuds and plenty more. Pictures from those sets and more are in this post.

Check out pics from Day 1 and pics from Day 3. More of Day 2 below...

Interpol at Bowery Ballroom last week (more by PSquared)
Interpol

Interpol have already played three intimate hometown shows in support of their new album El Pintor, and the release-week promotion continues with a 5 PM signing at Other Music tonight (9/10).

Their fall tour already includes two sold out Terminal 5 shows (11/24 & 11/26), and now a THIRD T5 show has been added for November 25. The other two are with Hundred Waters though no opener has been announced for this one yet. Tickets for the newly-added show go on AmEx presale today (9/10) at noon with a general on sale beginning Friday (9/12) at noon.

A new Philly date was added too. Updated dates are listed below...

Spoon at FFF 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Spoon

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Spoon, !!! , Operators (ex-Wolf Parade) @ Central Park Rumsey Playfield
Having released the terrific They Want My Soul earlier this summer, Britt Daniel and the new line-up of Spoon play this sold out show tonight. (They were great at the McKittrick secret show back in August.) In addition to punk-funk exclamationists !!!, Dan Boeckner's new band Operators open tonight... and between them and Spoon, the entire lineup of Divine Fits will be there tonight, so it's not out of the realm of possibilities that we might bet a song or two from that.

Karen O @ McKittrick Hotel
Karen O's first (but recorded 7 years ago) solo album, Crush Songs, is out now, and unlike Yeah Yeah Yeahs' increasingly bigger sounding music, it's raw introverted bedroom folk. This week's four intimate shows (tonight's being the second) should fit the sound well.

Bob Mould, Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Bowery Ballroom
Between his time in Husker Du, Sugar, and a prolific solo career, the legendary Bob Mould has over three decades of great material to pull from for this week's 3 NYC shows, this being the first. Openers Cymbals Eat Guitars are not to be missed either. This year's LOSE is one of the year's most powerful indie rock albums.

Dead Rider, Dan Friel, Advaeta @ Baby's All Right
Chicago's Dead Rider (ex-US Maple) headline this night of experimental music, noise and general out-there vibes.

Philip Glass & Steve Reich @ BAM (Howard Gilman Opera House
Nonesuch Records' 50th anniversary at BAM continues with the second of three collaborative nights of contemporary composer greats Philip Glass and Steve Reich, their first live collaborations in over thirty years.

Brad Mehldau, Chris Thile @ BAM (Harvey Theater)
Contemporary jazz composer Brad Mehldau is on his second of two nights at BAM for the Nonesuch anniversary, and this one's extra special because he'll be joined by Nickel Creek/Punch Brothers' Chris Thile.

Man or Astro-Man?, The Pack A.D., Wray @ Brooklyn Bowl
Everyone's favorite sci-fi surf punk band Man or Astro-Man? are back in town for two NYC shows this week, tonight's being the first.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers @ Madison Square Garden
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers put out their 13th album this year, Hypnotic Eye, and they're also responsible for some of the most massive heartland rock hits dating back to the 1970s. We should get a little of everything tonight.

Naomi Punk, PC Worship, Laced, Psychic Blood @ Palisades
This bill is loaded with raw DIY-minded rock with the grungy Naomi Punk, the noisy PC Worship, the Beach Fossils/Nude Beach-related Laced, and more noise/grunge from Psychic Blood.

Nick Waterhouse, PEP @ Rough Trade
LA classic soul/R&B lover Nick Waterhouse, who has made his way through NYC twice this year already, is back to lay down some live grooves, many of which are from his new album, Holly.

White Denim, Clear Plastic Masks @ MHOW
Austin's jam scene-approved rockers White Denim kick off a three-night at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight. Their current tour is continuing to support last year's Jeff Tweedy-produced Corsicana Lemonade.

"ASK ANDREW LIVE" w/ Andrew WK @ Santos Party House
This is billed as "a night of in-person intimate advice on life, love and" -- yep, you guessed it -- "partying."

The Stevens, Free Time @ Cake Shop
Melbourne's The Stevens pull from a variety of landmark indie rock -- The Clean, Guided by Voices, Pavement -- but don't sound quite like any of them. The band's debut album,The History of Hygiene, is 24 tracks of lo-to-mid-fi shambly pop perfection. No doubt there is a lot of this type of stuff out there, but The Stevens make superior product

Jason Lescalleet, Decimus @ Body Actualized Center
Drone/sound collage master Jason Lescalleet just played a collaborative show at Trans-Pecos with Kevin Drumm, and tonight he's back in solo mode for this show at Body Actualized Center.

Interpol signing @ Other Music (5 PM)
Interpol played three NYC shows last week in celebration of new album El Pintor which is out this week. Buy it and get the band to deface it with Sharpies at Other Music tonight.

Sweet @ The Slipper Room
Seth Herzog's comedy night Sweet is celebrating its 10th anniversary with three guest-filled shows this week, this is the final night. Herzog has promised appearances by Colin Quinn, Hannibal Buress, Vanessa Bayer, Dave Hill, and Questlove at some point during the week, and folks like Jim Gaffigan, Todd Barry and more have appeared as unannounced guests. Who will show up tonight?

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Interpol @ Bowery Ballroom, 9/4/2014
Interpol

Interpol are in the midst of a hometown promotional onlslaught for their new album El Pintor, which is out next week (9/9). After playing the chi chi Temple of Dendur at The Met on Tuesday (9/2), the band returned to more familiar Lower East Side territory for a show at Bowery Ballroom to a feverish crowd. Song selection varied from The Met show as you can see in the setlist below. The Bowery show had a Temple too, in this case opener Luke Temple of Here We Go Magic who performed solo. Pics from Bowery Ballroom are in this post.

The band wrap up their week of release shows in just a bit with a show at the I Heart Radio Theatre. It's a private show but is being streamed live at I Heart Radio's website, starting at 7 PM EST tonight (9/5).

Interpol will be back in NYC in November when their fall tour hits T5 for two sold-out shows. More pics and the setlist from Thursday's Bowery Ballroom show, plus an El Pintor making-of documentary, below...
