The Magic Band / Thee Oh Sees / the facilities, ATP NY 9/232012
ATP I'll Be Your Mirror 2012 Day 3
ATP I'll Be Your Mirror 2012 Day 3
ATP I'll Be Your Mirror 2012 Day 3

The books have closed on ATP NY 2012, the series's first excursion into the five boroughs, which replaced the getaway-style retreat of the previous four NYC-area events. Music festivals in the city are notoriously tricky propositions, and the way that this one played out has been less than smooth. The location was announced as Asbury Park, NJ, then changed to Manhattan, and anyone who looks back at the initial lineup will not only find that fest didn't really add many more significant bands, but that a number of acts dropped off completely (Louis C.K., Reigning Sound, Sharon Van Etten, Death Grips, Factory Floor, Chavez). Through it all, the tickets remained $199 for the weekend and $60/$75 per day. The whole situation seems closely related to the company's recently reported financial difficulties. For music fans enamored with ATP NY's past iterations, the whole set up required a different set of expectations.

Once it was up and running, the festival experience was exceedingly smooth and comfortable. The weather cooperated and the stages, minus a few brief technical hiccups, sounded great (the FDR over the outside stage didn't make a peep, aside from the occasional passing police siren).

Friday night brought the biggest names, with Frank Ocean and Philip Glass topping the bill. For me, that was the most unique match up of the fest, though hardly its only exclusive pairing. Other acts exclusive whose only area show this year was ATP, included the Dirty Three, who raged in their Saturday afternoon slot, and R&B-punk quartet the Make-Up, who tore up the indoor stage Sunday night. (Warren Ellis and Ian Svenonius vied for the title of best frontman, bringing wild yelps and James Brown-esque leg kicks, respectively.)

JEFF the Brotherhood turned out one of the best sets I've ever seen them play (often it seems the band is hampered by shoddy sound, despite only having two instruments). For them, the outdoor stage filled with billowing smoke and trippy laser lights. Afterwards, Jose Gonzalez took the same space, plucking his acoustic amid the impressive surroundings. He finished right before a downpour.

On Sunday, the psychedelic blues of Captain Beefheart's group, The Magic Band, wowed on the same stage, followed by the always sturdy Thee Oh Sees. who played to a raucous crowd at The Well the night before with Ty Segall.) By Sunday night, the festival did have a bit of a ghost town feel, with Hot Snakes closing out the outdoor stage and Godspeed You! Black Emperor playing a crushing set indoors.

Definiltey, the fest could have used a few more hip-hop acts (especially considering curator Greg Dulli's love of the genre). As it was, not counting Edan who DJ'd on Friday and perhaps Frank Ocean, the Roots were the closest thing on the lineup to representing the genre (Run DMC would have been a dream addition). Overall this year seemed less about dream lineups/reunions and more about getting its footing in Manhattan with a solid, more-modest three days.

More photos from Sunday are below, including pictures of Braids, Endless Boogie, The Psychic Paramount, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Tall Firs and The Album Leaf, with another set from Sunday still to come. Friday photos are here. As for Saturday... the dog ate them? We do have the Afghan Whigs ATP setlist below, however.

Delta Spirit at Central Park Summerstage last week (more by Tracy Allison)
Delta Spirit

Delta Spirit, who was just in NYC for a show at Central Park Summerstage with Dr. Dog and Kishi Bashi on Thursday (9/20), are taking a short break, but then they'll head back out on a headlining tour this fall. Previously, that tour didn't include any NYC shows, but now that the Summerstage show has passed, they've added a date happening at Irving Plaza on November 27. Support for that show and many other dates on the tour comes from two pretty great garage rock bands, FIDLAR and JEFF The Brotherhood. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (9/28) at 10 AM with Citi Cardmember, Live Nation, Live National Mobile App, and Music Geeks presales starting Thursday (9/27) at 10 AM. All dates on the tour are listed below.

Earlier this month, FIDLAR released a revamped version of their song, "Cheap Beer," which you can download above (via P4K). As soon as I heard the MP3, I was instantly transported back to walking into the back room at Public Assembly for the 2011 BrooklynVegan CMJ party that FIDLAR played, where I was greeted by a packed crowd and four rowdy punks on stage screaming, "I DRINK CHEAP BEER SO WHAT FUCK YOU!" The song will be on their debut LP, due out in early 2013 via Mom & Pop. They're a ton of fun, as are BV faves JEFF the Brotherhood, so if you're heading to that Delta Spirit show, getting there early to catch the openers is highly recommended.

A list of all dates and a recent HearYa Live Session of Delta Spirit performing "California" are below.

Frank Ocean/Bloc Party at Lollapalooza - 8/4/12
Lollapalooza 2012 - Day 2
Lollapalooza 2012 - Day 2
Lollapalooza 2012 - Day 2

Lollapalooza continued in Chicago's Grant Park yesterday (8/4) after beginning one day earlier (8/3). Day 2 gave us sets from Frank Ocean, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, tUnE-yArDs, The Tallest Man on Earth, Neon Indian, Chief Keef, Bear in Heaven, Washed Out, The Weeknd, and more. Unfortunately, during Neon Indian's set (which was cut short), the festival was shut down due to "dangerous weather," causing the tens of thousands of fans to flood the streets of Chicago in evacuation. But the fest reopened at 6 PM CST with an updated schedule. A number of performances were cancelled, including Alabama Shakes, B.O.B., Chairlift, and the Temper Trap, but others, like tUnE-yArDs, were rescheduled and took place at later times after the gates reopened.

If you aren't at the fest, have you been streaming it online? Today's stream begins at 1:30 CST.

Pics of day 1 are HERE. More pics of day 2 are below...

Jeff the Brotherhood, Santos 7/18/2012
Jeff The Brotherhood
Jeff The Brotherhood

What do you get when you put JEFF the Brotherhood in a tiny room and make the show free and all-ages? Wildness. It has been a while since I've seen the Nashville duo play a room as small as Santos' basement and it was the cheerfully out-of-control thunderstorm I was hoping to experience. Mind you I wasn't in the thick of it, but it is certainly fun to watch. The mayhem started with the first chord of the first song and rarely let up, though Jake and Jamin stopped the show after three songs when things got too crazy up front and tried to remove a set of steps up to the stage, but after a minute of failed wrangling with them, just told the crowd to "be nice."

The show was a BV-presented release party for JEFF's new album, Hypnotic Nights, which came out this week. The band played a good half of the album, plus most of the JEFF "oldies" you'd want like "Bone Jam," "Mellow Out" and ripper "Heavy Days." "We'll be back sometime soon," Jake told the sweaty crowd. "Like usual." When, exactly, they'll be back is still up in the air but all JEFF tour dates are listed below.

Openers were Fuck Ton which is basically a Death by Audio house band, with head DbA-ers Edan Wilber and Matt Conboy providing the rhythm section, with gutteral screams and vocals by Travis of Grooms and Jay Heiselmann of The Immaculates (plus Mark Kleeb on electronics). Pure noise but entertaining for their short set, plus it brought a little of Death By Audio (the place JEFF has played more than anywhere else in NYC) to the Lower East Side (well, actually Chinatown).

More pictures of both bands from the Santos show are below...

JEFF the Brotherhood

JEFF the Brotherhood, who are just wrapped up a tour with Best Coast, have been on a steady climb for the last three years or so, touring their asses off, playing killer show after killer show and cranking out awesome records to boot. And even while the venues get bigger, JEFF always make a point to play smaller shows as well -- they have pretty much fit in a Death by Audio show every time they come through NYC. To boot, Jake and Jamin are also two of the nicest guys you're likely to meet.

I have a feeling JEFF are about to bust wide with their new album Hypnotic Nights, their first for Warner Brothers and maybe their best yet. Co-produced by JEFF and Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, the album is one catchy, crunchy jam after the next. And while I'm pretty sure Jake's guitar still only has three strings, the album sprinkles in keyboards and other instrumentation (did I hear saxaphone in there?) to fill out their sound just a bit. But it's the songs that make this record, crammed with stick-in-your-head hooks and riffs, "ooh oohs," "whoa-ohs" and big sing-a-long choruses that make this such a fun, inventive album. Oh, and it rocks. It's out Tuesday, July 17 and if you pre-order the album through their website you get a free can koozie, button and bumper sticker. It's streaming in full at NPR.

BrooklynVegan is happy to announce we're presenting a record release show at Santos Party House on Wednesday, July 18 with openers Fuck Ton. It's in the smaller Santos basement, not the main room, and is FREE. First-come, first served. Doors are at 8PM and the show's at 8:30PM. Flyer for the 16+ show is below.

We're also giving away five autographed vinyl copies of Hypnotic Nights with multi-use gatefold sleeve and a CD of the album too. Details on how to enter are below.

Jeff tweet

Get well soon, Jake! This only affects four dates of their tour with Best Coast -- Those Darlins begin as openers starting June 26, which includes the 7/17 show at Terminal 5 -- but it will unfortunately mean JEFF's appearance at Choas in Tejas this is a no-go.

The rest of JEFF's June tour dates are still on, including their June 17 show at Bowery Ballroom (tickets are still available) and June 18 show at Maxwell's (tickets). All unaffected tour dates are below.

In happier news, JEFF the Brotherhood just released their new EP, Hypnotic Knights, which is the first release through their new deal with Warner Brothers (a phrase that still seems a little unbelievable). The four songs are all from the band's third album, similarly titled Hypnotic Nights, which is out in July on Warner Brothers via Jake and Jamin's Infinity Cat label. The fidelity is a little higher (Black Keys' Dan Auerbach produced), but this is still the JEFF we know and love. You can stream the Hypnotic Knights EP below.

Lollapalooza (more by Grant MacAllister)
Lolla

Chicago Sun Times reports:

Lollapalooza has revealed its official 2012 list of performers -- a typically wide-ranging smorgasbord of genres and styles topped by nearly a dozen mainstage headliners: the Red Hot Chili Peppers, freshly reunited bands Black Sabbath and At the Drive-In, the Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, the Shins and Passion Pit, plus spotlighted electronic music including Swedish house titan Avicii, French dance duo Justice and DJ-producer Bassnectar.

The annual music festival is scheduled for Aug. 3-5 in Chicago's Grant Park.

Rumored lineups have circulated widely, as they usually do, and Lollapalooza itself stoked the speculation in recent weeks via a series of CTA and online advertisements that seemed to hint at who would be playing.

The ads featured lyrics from such acts as Sigur Ros, Santigold, Jack White, Kimbra, Twin Shadow, the Weeknd, Bloc Party and more -- all bands that wound up on the bill.

Check out the full list below...

Continue reading "Lollapalooza 2012 lineup (Jack White, At The Drive-In, Sigur Ros, Black Keys, RHCP, Afghan Whigs, M83, Weeknd, SBTRKT, Black Sabbath & more)"

JEFF The Brotherhood at Terminal 5 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
JEFF The Brotherhood

"On October 18th, 2011, JEFF The Brotherhood [were] joined by William Tyler (Tompkins Square), Loney Hutchins (Cleft Records) and Joey Plunket in recording Volume 3 of the Upstairs at United series. Each song in this session was recorded in a single take direct to ¼ inch tape then cut at 45 RPM for the ultimate listening experience."

Jeff The Brotherhood show an interesting side to their influence on this release. They cover Hawkwind and play epic, eight-plus-minute jams that make up the four-song EP that will be released on Record Store Day (4/21).

My guess is that JTB will concentrate on their old garage-punk standards on a recently announced string of dates in May/June. Look for the duo at Bowery Ballroom on June 17th (get your tickets starting at noon on 3/30) and Maxwell's on June 18th (no tix yet). All other tour dates are listed below.

In other news, The Guardian has an interesting article on the growing Nashville scene and how it is "American rock's hottest property"...

its On a sunny Sunday afternoon, this place doesn't look much like hipster central.. Nevertheless, this homely area of East Nashville, across the Cumberland river from downtown, is now home to possibly the biggest concentration of exciting guitar bands in one city since the White Stripes and their garage cohort emerged from Detroit at the start of the last decade.

There's Pujol, playing a snarly, unconstrained version of rock'n'roll; there's Natural Child, with their goofy Stonesisms; Heavy Cream, beefing up a more traditional version of indie rock; D Watusi, bringing the beat pop; there are the teenagers of the Paperhead, offering a Sealed Knot-style re-creation of the sound of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd; there's the noisy sibling two-piece Jeff the Brotherhood, who would be the parents of all this, were it not for Be Your Own Pet, the Nashville teens who caused a brief sensation in the middle of the last decade. Oh, and did we mention one of Jeff was also in Be Your Own Pet? There's more, too - how about Diarrhea Planet, and their toppling-sideways take on hardcore punk?

Check out the entire article at The Guardian, and watch a short documentary with the band, with all tour dates, below...

Best Coast at LPR (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Best Coast

Best Coast have announced a big tour in support of their new LP The Only Place, due on 5/15 via Mexican Summer. Check out the tracklisting/art for The Only Place below.

The tour, part of which is with Jeff The Brotherhood (who recently played Terminal 5), and part of which is with Those Darlins (who recently lost a member), kicks off in LA in May and hits NYC at Terminal 5 on July 17th (with Those Darlins who they also played that Planned Parenthood event with at Le Poisson Rouge). Tickets for the NYC show go on AMEX presale Wednesday (3/7) at noon, and regular sale on Friday.

The NYC stop falls toward the end of fashion mogul Beth Consentino's trek, and is also one of TWO stops they'll make to the NYC area this summer, the first being... supporting Metallica in Atlantic City. All dates are listed below.

Those Darlins dont have a new record but do have a new EP on the way, AND they will join on for a covers LP of the Repo Man soundtrack(!)

If you have ever seen Nikki or Linwood's VHS collections, you know that their copies of Repo Man are well worn. Hell, we are pretty sure that Nikki's not driving might have something to do with Miller's philosophizing.

So, it is very cool that we can now announce that Those Darlins have recorded a cover of the Iggy Pop title track for an upcoming tribute album on American Laundromat Records.

Look for covers by Mike Watt, Matthew Sweet, Black Francis, Weekend and more to round out the rest of the LP, and look for it on 9/8 via American Laundromat.

All tour dates, SXSW included, and the new BC album cover, below...

The Kills @ Terminal 5 - 2/11/2012
The Kills

"The Kills' show [Saturday] night at Manhattan's Terminal 5 was billed as a 10th anniversary concert, but the band hardly acknowledged the occasion over a 90-minute set focused mainly on material from their two most recent albums. There were a few surprises particular to this show: They were joined by four additional percussionists in matching black leather and red bandanas whose drumming was more ornamental than audible, and they revived the seldom-performed No Wow gem "At the Back of the Shell." But for the most part, this was business-as-usual for a band more invested in their present than their past." [Rolling Stone]
The Kills, no strangers to Terminal 5, completed their tour with JEFF the Brotherhood and Hunters at the big NYC venue on Saturday night. They also hit Letterman and The Standard while in town. The openers also played their own shows at Maxwell's and Death By Audio.

Here are the pictures from Terminal 5. More of them with the Kills' setlist, below...

Death By Audio - Wednesday night - 2/8/2012
Jeff the Brotherhood

The Kills, JEFF the Brotherhood & Hunters play their sold out NYC show at Terminal 5 on Saturday, 2/11, a date that coincidentally (probably not) falls right during Fashion Week. If we had put two and two together earlier, we probably would have theorized that the band that contains Kate Moss's husband would be playing more than one show while in town. Who caught the invite-only show at The Standard last night?

Who caught JEFF the Brotherhood & Hunters (Uncle Bad Touch got stopped at the Canadian border) at Maxwell's instead? We didn't, but we do have a second set of pictures from the show they played one night earlier at Death By Audio in Brooklyn. They continue below...

Jeff the Brotherhood

JEFF the Brotherhood & Hunters, both on tour with The Kills (pics from their Austin show HERE), played a sweaty, sold-out show at Death By Audio in Brooklyn last night (2/8) The Numerators. Here are some pictures (Uncle Bad Touch were originally on the bill, but replaced by Hunters).

If you found yourself out of luck in getting tickets last night-- or for their sold-out Saturday night Terminal 5 show with The Kills-- you can also catch JEFF and Hunters again at Maxwell's tonight (2/9), with support from Devin. Tickets are still available for the Hoboken, NJ show.

Jeff The Brotherhood

Jeff The Brotherhood are currently on the road with The Kills and Hunters. Check out pictures from both Wednesday's Austin show and last week's Chicago date. The tour hits a now-sold-out Terminal 5 in NYC on 2/11.

Don't have tickets to Terminal 5? Rather see JEFF the Brotherhood somewhere smaller? The band also have a pair of other NYC-area dates, both with Uncle Bad Touch. In addition to the previously discussed Maxwell's on February 9th (with Devin), JEFF & UBT will play Death By Audio on February 8th (with The Numerators). Advanced tickets for Death By Audio go on sale at noon, while tickets for Maxwell's are still on sale now.

Speaking of Devin (formerly Devin Therriault), you can also catch him at Shea Stadium tonight (1/27) w/ SHAPES, The Static Jacks (who recently opened for Mission of Burma), Le Rug & Newport Reds.

Uncle Bad Touch welcomed their self-titled LP late last year via Infinity Cat. Check out a video for "I Wanna Love You" from that LP, as well as all tour dates below.

"Since the unfortunate passing of Jay Reatard, there has been a void in the hearts of scumfucks everywhere. Enter Cy Barkley, a man straddling the line between garage and punk with a black Gibson in hand. Rock Together showcases a more accessible side of Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders' dirty punk music that could put a wistful tear in Keith Morris' eye. "When you say you don't know, please tell me, I'll follow you," Barkley shouts over glammy riffs, pounding bass and unrelenting drums in "Rock Together", the EP's Single. The four track 7" is surely not the height of what this band could be - or will be - but this album marks the beginning of an era for Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders as they expand beyond Nashville's city limits." [Get Bent]
Jeff The Brotherhood did in fact play Matchless last night (8/22) with their friends/collaborators/city-mates/label-mates Cy Barkley & The Wayoutsiders. It was the first of three NYC dates for Cy. Catch them at Death By Audio TONIGHT (8/23) and Cake Shop tomorrow. Jeff played LPR with Pentagram one night earlier.

JEFF's Jake told the sold-out show's crowd that it would be the last time Jeff would play NYC "for a while" while the band records a new album. More pictures from Matchless, including some shots of a few partying Titus Andronicus-ians, are below...

JEFF the Brotherhood @ LPR
Jeff The Brotherhood

Pentagram headlined Le Poisson Rouge on Sunday night (8/21) with Jeff The Brotherhood, Valient Thorr and local addition ELKS, just a few days after playing dates on the West Coast as part of Power Of The Riff (check out the LA and San Fran pics). The LPR show is part of a string of dates that continue on 8/26 in Pittsburgh at Mr Small's before concluding at Sonar in Baltimore on 8/27. Pictures from the NYC show are in this post.

The day after LPR (last night, 8/22), Jeff The Brotherhood hit Matchless to play with Cy Barkley as part of his three show NYC tour that hits Death By Audio TONIGHT (8/23) and Cake Shop tomorrow. According to Rebecca Seung,

Cy Barkley is the man to know in Nashville, TN. Fronting both Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders and the hardcore punk band Slammers with Jamin Orrall from Jeff the Brotherhood, Mimi Galbriez from Heavy Cream, and Josh Shearon from Cannomen and Cy's current band the Way Outsiders, he's like the Kevin Bacon of the underground scene in Nashville--it probably only takes three moves to get to him. But then, it is a small town and a smaller scene, so it probably only takes six moves at most to get to anyone. Cy also lives with Nashville's Dead founder Ben Todd and throws a few shows a month attheir south side space Glenn Danzig's House, recently hosting touring acts like Personal and the Pizzas, in addition to frequenting local favorites like Useless Eaters, Natural Child, and D. Watusi.
Personal and the Pizzas arrive in NYC Friday.

ELKS are prearing to release their debut LP Destined for the Sun via Tee Pee on September 13th. Look for a new track to stream on BrooklynVegan in the coming days.

More pictures from LPR are below.

Cy Barkley & the Way Outsiders kick off a trio of NYC dates, their first ever, TONIGHT (8/22) at Matchless with "Bogus Bros" and DJ Thanksgiving Brown. But who are Bogus Bros... could it be that Bogus Bros are actually Jeff The Brotherhood? According to a post by Cy Barkley and hint by Jeff The Brotherhood, all signs point to yes. Jeff The Brotherhood played LPR with Pentagram last night, pictures are on the way.

If you can't make it to Matchless tonight, you have two more chances to catch Cy Barkley this week. Look for them at Death By Audio tomorrow (8/23) with Shingles, Enthusiasts, and Hunters ($7 gets you in, all ages) and Cake Shop on Wednesday (8/24) with Foster Care and Dry Feet ($7, 21+).

Cy Barkley & The Wayoutsiders released "Rock Together"/"Econoline" 7" via Jeff's imprint Infinity Cat earlier this year. Check out an amazing video for Rock Together below alongside all tour dates.
