Josh Ritter opened for Swell Season @ Radio City (more by Kurt Christensen)
Josh Rouse is not to be confused with Josh Ritter who was a surprise guest at the Celebrate Brooklyn Swell Season show in Prospect Park last night (7/30) (not the first time the two artists performed together) (they toured together earlier this year), but more about the Brooklyn show later (and a video from another time they performed together below).
A few nights earlier, Josh's wife Dawn Landes was Sondre Lerche's surprise guest at Mercury Lounge.
Last time Dawn played Mercury Lounge, Josh Ritter was her surprise guest.
Next time Josh Ritter headlines his own NYC show, August 8th on Governors Island to be exact, Dawn Landes will be one of the openers (and the show is free). Justin Townes Earle, who Dawn has toured and performed with before, is also scheduled to play that free show. Let's just hope his hand heals quickly.
Elvis Perkins and Dearland replace Justin Townes Earle at the Newport Folk Fest this weekend. Elvis Perkins's band now also plays on their own as Diamond Doves and they were also on the bill at that Sondre Lerche/Dawn Landes/JBM show a few days ago.

Josh Rouse @ (Le) Poisson Rouge in February (more by Tim Griffin)
"For the last few years, I've been listening to a lot of Brazilian music," [Josh Rouse] says. "Especially, João Gilberto. As well as jazz artists like Vince Guaraldi and Terry Callier. I started to get rhythmic ideas from their stuff--then, conceptual ones. I knew I wanted to sing some of my new songs in Spanish, set against a backdrop of Latin grooves. The record has some things I wrote like 'Don't Act Tough,' and folk standards like 'Cotton Eye Joe.' Somehow, these things fit together for me." [American Songwriter]Josh Rouse will be back in NYC on Wednesday, April 28th for a show at the Bell House, as part of a string of April US dates. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale.
All tour dates and videos of Josh Rouse playing around Paris filmed by a Blogotheque-esque site called Le Hiboo are below...

Josh Rouse played two nights at (Le) Poisson Rouge Thursday, February 4th and Friday the 5th with Christina Courtin. The pictures here are from that second show. He, like Those Darlins who were at Bowery Ballroom on Friday, was forced to cancel his Philadelphia appearance the next night because of the 'snowpocalyse' that hit places south of NYC (those three stops were part of his super-short stateside trip). Josh will be making up the Philly show when he comes back in the spring (dates TBA) in support of his new album, El Turista, out March 9th on Yep Roc. Rouse discussed the album with WNYC before his Friday show. That's streaming on their site.
More pictures from LPR are below...
"I know it's kind of funny, this Midwestern guy doing Brazilian songs in Spanish," says Josh Rouse about his new studio album, El Turista. "I don't know if it fits, but I like the way it feels." [Yep Roc bio]Josh Rouse will be putting out his new record, El Turista, on March 9th through Yep Roc. He makes a US trip this February. That includes a pair of shows at NYC's (Le) Poisson Rouge on February 4th and 5th. Christina Courtin (as per her Myspace "I'm not a fucking jazz singer") opens. Tickets to the February 4th and February 5th shows are on sale.
The shows promise to be immersive, with Josh accompanied by native Spanish musicians Raul Fernandez (guitar, piano, vocals), Ricardo Bellveser Machancoses (bass guitar), Jose Maria Fuertes Tasquer (guitar), and New York based Robert DiPietro (drums and percussion).Before then, Christina Courtin plays Rubin Museum of Art on Friday, January 29th (tonight) as part of their Naked Soul series. Tickets are on sale.
Josh Rouse is not to be confused with Josh Ritter who was recently seen opening for The Swell Season and playing with Dawn Landes at Mercury Lounge, and who will be back soon to play Town Hall (It will be even more confusing when Josh Rouse's upcoming show at the same venue gets announced).
Josh Rouse was filmed by La Blogotheque last July in Barcelona, where he now lives. Those Blogoteque videos, a download-for-your-email widget (for a song off his new record) and all tour dates are below...

I would like to apologize to the Breeders for saying they would not sell out. I was a jerk about it and am truly sorry. I also apologize to their fans I may have offended with my stupid insensitive comments. Hope you liked the show.-Anonymous
The Breeders @ The Paradise in Boston 8/17 (more by Bryan Bruchman)
"Come one come all-I'm work shopping new introductions bare with me-Welcome to the 18th installment of the Jay Porks Never Ending concert series. Tonight brings us to the 'Sold Out' Bowery Ballroom at 6 Delancey St. in New York City. The Bowery is a venue that's been on my radar for a while, considering that the Bowery owns(or at least sponsors) most of the venues I attend for concerts in the city. Tonight the headliner, the band I'm here to see is the one, the only, THE BREEDERS." [The Jay Porks Blog]The Breeders completed their two-night run at Bowery Ballroom in NYC last night (8/19). More on that soon.
On the horizon, Kim & Kelley Deal will be singing as part of The Long Count at BAM this fall, and Kim will be playing with her other band the Pixies, when they play NYC on their Doolittle tour this November.
Co-Pixie Frank Black recently contributed a track to New Tales To Tell: A Tribute to Love and Rockets, which came out Tuesday (Aug 18th) on Justice Records. Frank's track from that, "All in My Mind", off L&R's 1986 album Express, is posted above for your downloading pleasure.
He didn't appear at the release party/show on August 18th at the Ben Sherman store in Soho, but he will be at the show for, another tribute comp, Ciao My Shining Star - The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, which happens Sunday, September 20th at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Also appearing at the concert will be Joseph Arthur, David Berkeley and more. Non-musical guests (of sorts) include the premiere of the Thom Yorke video "All For The Best" and a reading by graphic novelist Ben Katchor. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 21st at noon.
Joseph Arthur also has a series of shows coming up at City Winery.
That Mulcahy comp also has a slightly more personal story, via FrankBlack.net...
We have some sad news from a friend of our website and of FBF, Mark Mulcahy. Some of you might recognize the name as the singer/songwriter behind Miracle Legion and Polaris [of the soundtrack to Pete & Pete among other things], both of which featured Catholics David McCafferey and Scott Boutier, or perhaps you recognize the name from the liner notes of Christmass, as Mark provided backing vocals for both "Radio Lizards" and "Don't Get Me Wrong." Or maybe, like me, you saw Mark open for the Pixies in Atlantic City in 2005. Regardless, Mark's wife recently passed away, leaving him as a single dad to two small children. Some friends and admirers, including our Frank Black Francis, have recorded some of Mark's songs for a tribute record called Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy.That record comes out September 29th on Shout! Factory records, and includes contributions from The National, Thom Yorke, Michael Stipe, Dinosaur Jr., Vic Chesnutt and Elvis Perkins. In addition to the names on the tracklist, below, 20 additional cuts will be released digitally. Look for a London concert to be announced as well.
The tracklist and art work for both tribute albums are posted below...
