Kishi Bashi, Elizabeth and the Catapult @ Irving Plaza - 9/12/2013
Kishi Bashi, Elizabeth and the Catapult @ Irving Plaza - 9/12/2013

Throughout the show, Ishibashi stayed consistent in one respect -- in his inconsistency. He mixed an almost classical sound with the dissonant harmonies of traditional Japanese music, and wove in a bouncy lightheartedness. Some songs were folky, some vibey, some had riffs devoid of any recognizable beat. The diversity in his singing style also contributed to an extremely varied sound. He maintained crystal-clearness while switching from his normal range to falsetto to practically yelling. Although each sound seemed different from the next, he mixed it all beautifully and seamlessly.

Ishibashi's utilization of his violin skill is probably what sews it all together. From full-bodied playing of violin heavy pieces, to gentle finger-picking riffs, to using the violin as a ukulele, Ishi Bashi has it all down. -[Buquad]

Violin-weilding Kishi Bashi's tour with Elizabeth and the Catapult hit NYC on Thursday (9/11) at Irving Plaza. The review above, however, is from the previous night's stop in Montreal. Pictures from Irving Plaza are in this post.

Kishi Bashi's tour rolls on, hitting Virginia Beach tomorrow. Meanwhile, Brooklyn's Elizabeth and the Catapult will play another hometown show in November for the Tinderbox Festival, which also includes Deerhoof, Aye Nako, Butter the Children, and more.

Philip Glass Ensemble live scoring 'Dracula'
Philip Glass @ Celebrate Brooklyn - 7/13/2013

According to Celebrate Brooklyn!, "The last time [they] screened the 1931 Bela Lugosi classic, DRACULA with Philip Glass' equally classic original score performed live, thunder rolled, lightening streaked the sky, and torrents of rain worthy of Transylvania chased everyone out of the park half way through."

The weather was still a little misty but much nicer when Philip Glass and his ensemble returned to Prospect Park on Saturday (7/13) for one of this summer's free Celebrate Brooklyn! shows at the outdoor venue. Support at the show came from of Montreal collaborator Kishi Bashi, whose baroque-inspired pop was a good fit to open the evening. (You can catch Kishi Bashi again at Irving Plaza on 9/12.)

More pictures from Saturday's show below...

Firefly 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

It's been crazy both in and not-in the NYC-area for festivals this past week. NYC was taken over by a very muddy Governors Ball last weekend (6/7-9), and this past weekend (6/14-16), while almost every Brooklyn venue took part in the Northside Festival, Toronto was hosting NXNE and Tennessee had Bonnaroo to name the ones we were most focused on. That's all behind us now, but those who are into festivals still have much more to look forward to this summer including another big one on the east coast this weekend.

This coming weekend, Friday, June 21-Sunday, June 23, the Firefly Music Festival is returning to Dover, Delaware's Dover International Speedway, which is only about a 3 hour drive (directions) from NYC. The festival debuted last year, and like Governors Ball, they've upped their game a bit this year. There will be a bunch of great bands across four main stages, like:

On Friday, there's sets by Django Django, Dr. Dog, Action Bronson, Foxygen, Public Enemy, Grizzly Bear, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Earl Sweatshirt (who was added to the lineup in May) and more. And besides RHCP vs Earl (who start 15 minutes apart), the conflicts that day aren't too bad.

On Saturday, there's sets by Japandroids, Jim James (who replaced Imagine Dragons, so bonus points for that), Kendrick Lamar, Alabama Shakes vs Lord Huron at 5 PM, then CHVRCHES vs Edward Sharpe, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT vs Azealia Banks, and finally Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will headline the day, plus still more.

And on the festival's final day, Sunday, you can catch Haim, Matt & Kim, Toro y Moi, Passion Pit vs The Walkmen both going on at 6:30, Vampire Weekend, and more. Plus, if you need to leave early to get home from work on Monday, you can leave before Foster the People's headlining set. Two birds, huh?

UPDATE:Both Earl Sweatshirt and The Lumineers have cancelled, but were replaced by Schoolboy Q & Ben Harper.

And in addition to the main stages, there's some smaller side stuff too, like the Red Bull Sound Select Hub Stage which features bands who have joined the Red Bull Sound Select Program. We aren't familiar with all the bands playing that one, but we suggest you stop by Saturday for NYC's Heliotropes (who, by the way, are playing a record release show in NYC on 6/18, and streaming their new record). The Skins and Oxymorrons are both on that stage too, both NYC bands who we caught when they played the Afropunk-curated RBSS show at Knitting Factory with Danny Brown.

There's also the Coffee House Stage with other smaller acts including The Spinto Band, Jenny Owen Young, Pearl & the Beard, Hey Marseilles, Selah Sue, Trails & Ways, and many more.

Last but not least, in addition to just being there as fans and covering the festival, BrooklynVegan will be producing two hours of entertainment from 1-3pm each day inside the Soundwave tent, presented by Toyota and Spinmedia, and hosted by musician & BV contributor Billy Jones. Take a look at the festival map - our stage is toward the top left next to St. Jude.

Hosted overall by one of our favorite comedians, Dave Hill, the Soundwave stage will also feature programming by SPIN (5-7 each day) and Hype Machine (3-5 each day) in addition to the BrooklynVegan stuff (1-3 each day). Stay tuned for our full stage schedule, but get there on Friday at 1pm for a live interview with Django Django and look forward to a second performance by and audience Q & A with Amanda Palmer on Sunday at 2pm. More details soon!

Meanwhile, check out the full main stages Firefly lineup and schedule at Firefly's website where you'll also find much more info if you're attending, like the festival map which is also below...

Firefly Music Festival 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Firefly Music Festival

Dover, DE festival Firefly Music Festival had a great first year in July of 2012, and afterwards immediately announced it'd return in 2013. The 2013 festival happens from June 21 - 23 at the Dover International Speedway, and the lineup was just announced.

KEXP is always good for some intimate & live-broadcasted CMJ performances, and this year is no different, except for the venue:

CMJ Union | 27 Union Square West | New York, NY

CMJ presents its own venue and social hub as part of CMJ Music Marathon 2012. CMJ Union is a bustling meeting point designed to bring together the festival's many different strands, providing space for badgeholders to mingle with press, panelists and artists. It's a place where ideas and information can be exchanged through exclusive mixers and parties, where guests can experience artist performances broadcast live by KEXP, and where tips on where to go and who to see ping back and forth across the room.

KEXP LIVE BROADCAST

Dr. Dog at Central Park Summerstage - 9/20/12
Dr. Dog

[Dr. Dog] played behind an altered American flag with neon colors and only three stars (the symbolism escaped me). Quickly, they settled into the pattern of slow opening verses leading to huge climactic choruses, with harmonized oohs and aahs. Some cute touches were added to "I Only Wear Blue" and "The Old Days" when an electronic effect such as a horse nay and hand claps were added. But the big and memorable moment came when Delta Spirit's Matt Vasquez stumbled onto the stage during "Worst Trip." With a shaker in hand, he jumped around and eventually made his way atop Leaman's shoulders for the end of the song [The House List]
Dr. Dog took their tour to NYC for a show at Central Park Summerstage last night (9/20) with Delta Spirit and Kishi Bashi. Pictures and a video from the show are in this post.

Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
Baroness

Earlier this week, we posted an update from Baroness showing that things were looking upwards for the band. Unfortunately though, with two members having broken vertebrae and frontman John Baizely having a broken arm and leg, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Baroness have in fact cancelled some of their upcoming North American tour dates, including their NYC show at House of Vans and LA's FYF Fest. They will not be replaced on the House of Vans lineup, which happens on August 29 and now just includes Turbonegro, Doomriders, and Nightbirds. This is a bummer but it makes sense that the band takes the time they need to recover, and we wish them a speedy and successful recovery!

Meanwhile, FYF Fest, which Wild Flag also dropped off of, recently expanded its lineup. It now features The Faint (who just announced they'll be reissuing Danse Macabre and touring the album), Glass Candy, King Tuff, and newcomers The Orwells. Tickets for FYF Fest are still available. The updated lineup and flier are below.

Passion Pit at House of Blues in Chicago - 8/2/12
Passion Pit

While in Chicago for Lollapalooza, which they play today (8/3), Passion Pit played what is their only North American club date since the tour cancellation at House of Blues last night (8/2) for an official Lolla aftershow with Givers and Kishi Bashi. Pictures from that show are in this post.

Passion Pit resurfaced this year with Gossamer, a hugely successful followup to their debut, but as you may know the sweet doesn't come without the bitter. Frontman Michael Angelakos opened up in an interview with PItchfork about his bipolar disorder, manic depression, and suicidal encounters, all of which are addressed in the heavy lyrical content of Gossamer. In need of improving his mental health, Michael was forced to cancel a number of dates on the band's tour, including the NYC show at Apollo Theater that they would have played last month.

Fortunately, the band chose to remain on the lineups for Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, all of which happen this month. They are also still set for Made in America in Philly this September.

More pics from last night's show are below...

Kishi Bashi at Webster Hall in March (more by Bryan Bruchman)
Kishi Bashi

The Barr Brothers (Andrew and Brad Barr of The Slip) and Kishi Bashi (K Ishibashi of Jupiter One and touring member of of Montreal) have a few dates together this month including a NYC show TONIGHT (5/16) at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show are available.

Maybe you caught Kishi Bashi doing his vocal/violin set as an opening act on Of Montreal's tour. He released his debut album for the project, 151a, last month on Joyful Noise. There are some definite similarities to Owen Pallett, who also creates baroque art pop primarily with his violin and voice, though it's a bit poppier than Owen. You can stream the entire album below. Kishi Bashi will also play a much larger NYC show when he opens for Dr. Dog at Summerstage (9/20) with Delta Spirit.

All dates are listed below, along with the 151a album stream...

Dr. Dog at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Dr. Dog

More ticketed Summerstage shows are continuing to be announced. This week it was revealed that The Avett Brothers will play on September 18 and fellow folk-leaning rockers Dr. Dog will play two days later on September 20 with Delta Spirit and Kishi Bashi. Tickets for the Dr. Dog show are on AmEx presale now and go on sale this Friday (4/13) at noon and tickets for the Avett Brothers show go on sale next Friday (4/20) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning next Thursday (4/18) at noon.

Both The Avett Brothers and Dr. Dog will share a stage when they open for Wilco at Susquehanna Bank Center on July 21 in Camden, NJ. The Avett Brothers also play Terminal 5 on May 9. That show is sold out.

Delta Spirit are also on the just-announced Lollapalooza lineup and recently headlined a sold out show at Webster Hall (the same venue Kishi Bashi just opened for Of Montreal at). They play the new Emo's East in Austin on Friday with tour-mate WATERS who also plays a free Waterloo in-store earlier that day.

All dates for most of the above-mentioned bands, below...

Of Montreal @ Webster Hall - 3/31/2012
Of Montreal

Like they did on Friday, Of Montreal headlined Webster Hall on Saturday night (3/31), but this time with a different set of openers including the super talented and humble, but a bit mismatched Loney Dear, who had some trouble keeping the large crowd's attention. Probably not the best idea to put a singer-songwriter on right before an energetic band like Of Montreal. Kishi Bashi's opening set of vocal and violin looping went over a bit better.

If you compare the written setlist from Friday with Saturday's (below), you'll see Kevin Barnes & company mixed it up a bit to the benefit of people who went both nights.

Of Montreal's tour continues to Boston tonight. More pictures from Saturday in NYC, below...

Of Montreal

"Our new album, Paralytic Stalks, is officially available for pre-order through Polyvinyl Records! It'll be available on CD / 180-gram 2xLP (limited edition fuchsia, or black vinyl) / cassette / MP3 formats on Feb 7th. Check everything out by clicking HERE. Tracklist below."
Of Montreal will go out on tour in support of that album this spring. The newly-announced dates include NYC shows at Webster Hall on March 30 (with Computer Magic and Hard Nips) and Webster Hall on March 31 (with Loney Dear and Kishi Bashi). Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday at noon. All dates are listed below...

Sondre Lerche at BV Day Party (more by Tim Griffin)
Sondre Lerche

Vulture: Why release a self-titled album now?

Sundre Lerche: Usually I have the title for the record pretty early on. I'll know which song title it is, or if it's a phrase from a song, but this time I didn't really have a clear vision of what it might be. I even asked my followers on Twitter for a suggestion. And of course -- no offense to them -- but that didn't prove to be fruitful. I sort of became obsessed with this whole title thing. I woke up from this dream one day and I had the perfect title, but I couldn't remember it. I'm not going to settle for anything but that title, and if I can't have it, it'll be a self-titled album.

Like last year, Sondre Lerche will join the droves of bands making the trek to Austin for SXSW this month. His list of mid-March shows is below.

Lerche's new and self-titled LP is due on June 7th via Mona Records. He kicks off a tour with Nightlands and Kishi Bashi on June 1st, hitting Bowery Ballroom on June 4th. Tickets for all dates are currently on fan presale, and Bowery Ballroom tickets go on general sale Friday.

Sondre's friend JBM is also returning to SXSW this year. You can catch him on 3/18 at Central Presbyterian Church (Sondre plays the same show) and earlier that same day at the TBA BV day party at Swan Dive (stay tuned).

All Sondre tour dates and some video, below...
