This year's fest includes Beck, The Avett Brothers, Feist, Jim James, Colin Meloy, Andrew Bird, The Mountain Goats (who just announced a tour), Father John Misty, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & Dawn McCarthy, Justin Townes Earle, Felice Brothers, Jason Isbell, Amanda Palmer, Phosphorescent, Beth Orton, John McCauley, Michael Kiwanuka, Lord Huron, Frank Turner, Black Prairie, Langhorne Slim, TIft Merritt, Spirit Family Reunion, Blake Mills, Houndmouth, Cold Specks, and others, plus more TBA.

Lord Huron have taken a serious leap in popularity since the release of their most recent album (a release they celebrated at Mercury Lounge in NYC). They announced some February dates at the beginning of January, and then sold out their 600-capacity Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in four day. Good news for those who missed out on tickets: they've announced another one happening at the same venue one day later. Tickets for the 2/24/2013 show go on sale Friday at noon.
Back in October of 2011 we were happy to host a set by Lord Huron at one of our BV-CMJ day parties at Public Assembly. While writing this post I realized we never posted the pictures afterward, so here they are, over a year late. More of them with updated tour dates, below...
Lord Huron at Mercury Lounge in 2012 (more by Dan Bracaglia)
Lord Huron, whose 2012 debut LP, Lonesome Dreams was one of the catchier albums of folk's recent indie/mainstream collide, are continuing to tour in support of it this February with a number of European dates scheduled and a stop in Brooklyn on their way home to LA. The Brooklyn show happens on February 23 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/11) at noon.
A list of all dates, the video for "Time To Run," and a spotify stream of Lonesome Dreams, are below...
Lord Huron at Mercury Lounge in October (more by Dan Bracaglia)
As the year comes to a close, we're wrapping up these year-end lists from artists and other people in the music world. Today we posted lists by BV radio host Nick Masi, Gardens & Villa, and Brooklyn Bowl talent buyer Adam Geringer-Dunn. Browse our "Best of 2012" tag for many more. Now here's one from Ben Schneider, frontman of LA folk rockers Lord Huron. The list includes a couple veteran folk singers, who most likely influenced Ben's own writing, two very different and very notable experimental music leaders, Lord Huron tourmates Night Moves, and a '70s Afghan pop star.
Check out the full list, and some tour dates, below...

Lord Huron @ Mercury Lounge - 10/9/12
LA band Lord Huron brought their tour with Night Moves to NYC for their first of two shows here last night (10/9) at Mercury Lounge with Eastern Midwestern and Ludwig Persik. The tour is in support of their new album, Lonesome Dreams, which came out this week (10/9) and which you can stream on NPR. Lord Huron and Night Moves continue their tour this week and return to NYC on Friday (10/12) at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are still available.
More pictures from last night's show are below.
Check out pictures from the show they just played in Chicago with Lower Dens.
And speaking of Brooklyn, get ready for Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas.
The Compact Disc turns 30 years old today. The first CD pressed in America was Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA (though Billy Joe's 52nd Street came out in Japan before that). What was the first CD you bought?
Speaking of Bruce Springsteen, Kenny's Castaways, where he used to play is hosting their final show tonight.
Producer and TV On the Radio member Dave Sitek has launched Federal Prism, "a new record label where Sitek will personally record, mix, produce, and release a series of limited edition 12-inch vinyl picture discs with a uniquely curator-driven perspective. The vinyl will be limited to 500 numbered copies each with a jacket personally hand silkscreened by Sitek."
Federal Prism's first release is "Destroyer" by Telepathe. "The b-side of the vinyl will feature a remix by Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor with Alessandro Cortini and Atticus Ross. Sitek adds, "I told Trent I was starting my own label and would love to have him remix something on the first release. I sent him the session and before he actually said 'YES', he sent back this mighty dark space that he, Alessandro and Atticus had built for me! I was shocked and am certain I will have to keep ripping them off for years!"" It's on sale now.
Speaking of Trent Reznor, he says his his band How To Destroy Angels, have "formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it's called An Omen EP."
Scary: Ryan Adams revealed via Twitter: "Recording a track with my new pal @deadmau5 today. Sounds like BladeRunner starring Don Henley."
More scary: As if it wasn't bad enough that Bruno Mars has been announced as the host of the 10/20 episode of SNL, they're letting him be the musical performer for that episode too!
But here's some good news: Now That's What I Call Music 83 will reportedly be the last in the series.

West Coast janglers Craft Spells are heading East next month to play Cincinatti's Midpoint Music Festival (September 27 - 29) which also features the likes of Grizzly Bear, The Walkmen, Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells and many more. Tickets for the fest are still available and the whole line-up is at the bottom of this post.
Before the festival, Craft Spells will be in NYC for a show at Glasslands on September 24 with new new romantics Ice Choir. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
You can stream Craft Spells' new-ish EP, Gallery, plus check out the whole Midpoint Music Fest line-up, below.
LA folkies Lord Huron are set to release their new album on October 9. From the sounds of the clip of album track, "Lonesome Dreams" (which you can stream below), it's another example of the post-Fleet Foxes/Mumford and Sons sort of folk which has been experiencing success lately.
They'll be supporting the new album with a tour which comes to NYC for two shows this fall: October 9 at Mercury Lounge and October 12 at Glasslands. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public on Thursday (7/12) at noon, and tickets for the Glasslands show go on sale Friday (7/13) at noon.
A list of all dates and that song clip below...
7:32pm Metric wrapped up a touch early; partly because one new song ("Lost Kitten") was stopped 10 seconds into it and Emily decided to strike it from the set. Aside from that odd error, Metric played a fair set. They cited the show as their "public debut" of Synthetica and they did play mostly new material (7 out of 11 songs), most of which sounds promising. It's always hard to judge new material accurately as the audience doesn't know it so it always comes across slightly weak or stiff. Metric opened their set with newbie "Artificial Nocturne" (also the album's opener). It was one of the stronger new tracks. The other stand outs were "Youth Without Youth" (when played live it seemed to lose it's sluggishness of it's studio version) and "Nothing But Time", a synth/piano number that builds each verse until drums kick in and the song finishes with a flourish of Emily Haines' Pro-One synth. The band closed with an acoustic version "Gimme Sympathy" that had pretty much the entire amphitheater singing along. [The Province]Here's more pictures from the super-stacked Saturday (5/26) line-up of the Sasquatch Music Festival which happened Memorial Day Weekend in Gorge, Washington -- including Metric, St. Vincent, The Shins, Dum Dum Girls, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Couer de Pirate, Sol, Com Truise and more. The first set from Saturday (5/26) are HERE and Friday (5/25) are HERE. More from Day 2 below and still more Sasquatch pics to come.
"Following last year's 10th anniversary, which crushed previous attendance records and set a new mark for the speed with which tickets sold out, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2012 lineup which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 25-28 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The Gorge, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA."The Sasquatch! Music Festival takes place, as usual, at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington over Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28). And this year's lineup is:

Lord Huron @ Mercury Lounge
The Wilderness of Manitoba @ Mercury Lounge
"When i arrived at the mercury lounge a little after 8 char was already in the mostly empty performance area in the back enjoying the pop stylings of an impossibly young-looking (and quite decent) pop band called spanish prisoners. they were followed by the extremely affable (and lumberjackily-attractive) canadian folky pop group wilderness of manitoba, who created their hauntingly pretty sound by weaving their combined vocal harmonies over mountainesk sounds of banjo, cello, mandolin and guitar, and striking a perfect balance between mellow and intense..." [musikati]One night after opening for Femi Kuti, Lord Huron headlined his own show at Mercury Lounge with a lineup consisting of North Highlands, The Wilderness of Manitoba & Spanish Prisoners. Pictures from that Thursday night gig are in this post.
For Toronto folk band The Wilderness of Manitoba, whose album When You Left The Fire is out May 10th on tinyOGRE, it was the first of a few trips to the NYC-area in coming months. Later this month they hit the road with Cloud Cult for a tour that hits both Maxwell's and Music Hall of Williamsburg. Then in July they hop on the road with Rasputina starting at Mexicali Blues in Teaneck, NJ. All tour dates, more pictures and a video, below...

Femi @ MHOW
Chicago Sun-Times: You're always discussed in relation to your father's musical legacy. What does that mean to you? What was his musical legacy?Nigerian royalty blessed Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (4/27), as Femi Kuti headlined his second of two NYC dates in NYC (Highline Ballroom occupied his Tuesday night). Lord Huron supported last night at MHoW and will play a headlining show TONIGHT (4/28) at Mercury Lounge with North Highlands, The Wilderness of Manitoba, and Spanish Prisoners. Tickets are still available.
Femi Kuti: It's one that started within our family, creating a music that was unique. Folks in Lagos and Africa can identify. It's very homely for us. It's like funk is to America, or rock. It's a distillation of the native sounds made into something a wider audience can appreciate...
Chicago Sun-Times Is it a burden to carry your father's legacy?
Femi Kuti: No, because I understand what I am doing. I enjoy doing the music myself. People want to know about him and I'm obliged to answer. I love my father. Some people are not close to their parents, they grow up and don't want to be identified with them. It's not a problem for me.
Femi is out on tour supporting his new album 'Africa for Africa.'

It's been kind of a bummer week with way too many great musicians lost (Gerard Smith, Poly Styrene, Pheobe Snow) but Spring is finally here and, well, the beat goes on. Lots of worthy shows this week.
First up is White Fence who are making a rare trip to the East Coast this week, playing a few shows here in NYC: Thursday at 285 Kent with Woods and Spectre Folk, then Saturday (4/30) at Cake Shop. I feel fairly certain that they are also "Beige Swordfights" listed as part of a sweet Death by Audio show on Friday (4/29) that includes The Beets, Fergus and Geronimo and The Sundelles.
White Fence is Tim Presley who also fronts LA psych-rock band Darker My Love. Where that band is more groovy in a JAMC/BJM kind of way, White Fence sounds like a lost nugget from the late '60s flower power scene. White Fence released its debut on Woodsist last year, and the second album, ...Is Growing Faith, came out this January. Both records are weird and wonderful, lots of great songs made more interesting with vintage sound and old-school tape effects. If you like Love, The Left Banke or, more recently, the Lilys (to name three L bands) you'll dig White Fence's scene.
Keeping with the color scheme, Ottowa, Ontario's White Wires are back in town for a one-off show on Thursday at Bruar Falls as part of a fun line-up of party rock and power pop. One of my favorite live bands of the last few years, White Wires play no-nonsense three-minute pop and do so with a joy you can't fake. White Wires new album, WWII, gets in and gets out in less than 30 minutes and should appeal to fans of the Nerves, early Tom Petty and The Undertones.
The rest of the show, brought to you by the good folks at Daed Pizza, looks pretty cool too with all-girl trio Babyshakes, and Games which is a new band formed from ex-members of Gentleman Jesse and Busy Signals. Obviously, this is not the synthy Games who now go by Ford & Lopatin. You can listen to this Games' swell debut single over at the Rob's House Records website.
What else? Buffalo Tom play Bowery Ballroom on Thursday (4/28). The Boston trio were once dubbed "Dinosaur Jr. Jr." (being signed to SST and having J Mascis produce your debut, it was an easy joke) but became one of the most popular bands of the early '90s alt rock scene. 1990's Birdbrain and 1992's Let Me Come Over are indie rock classics that were unavoidable on college radio and Alternative Nation (or episodes of My So-Called Life) and still hold up.
The band went on hiatus around 2000 but returned with 2007's Three Easy Pieces and have just released a new album, Skins, which came out in February. It's pretty good. More mature, yes, but Buffalo Tom can still bring the noise too. If you have any doubt, you can download the entirety of Buffalo Tom's Mercury Lounge show from November 2010 courtesy NYC Taper. You can also check out a track from Skins at the top of this post.
And finally, Lord Huron are here on Thursday (4/28, the night of Too Many Good Shows) at Mercury Lounge. (And at tonight at MHoW with Femi Kuti) (we're giving away a pair of tickets on Facebook). I like their EP well enough, and the Merc show seems likely to sell out, so I'm really here to say if you're going do go early enough to check out North Highlands who play right before them. It's their first show in a long time, as the band have been putting finishing touches on their debut album which they've been working hard on all winter. The band are promising lots of new songs which is pretty exciting. Anyone who's seen them play know North Highlands are great live and I think 2011 is gonna be a big year for them. Go see 'em! And yeah, stay for Lord Huron I guess.
That's mostly it for this week. A few more daily picks are below:
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27
Blogs may have gotten over their crush on Austin band Oh No! Oh My! but that doesn't mean they've gone stale. Hear their still-catchy indiepop tonight at The Rock Shop tonight. Go early to catch Atlanta's underrated Modern Skirts (check out two tracks at the top of this post).
Lollapalooza last year (more by Josh Darr)
Lollapalooza celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with some huge names on its just-announced lineup. See it in full below.
The festival has obviously changed over the years. What started out as a farewell tour for Jane's Addiction with a 'touring festival' lineup that included the Rollins Band, Nine Inch Nails, Butthole Surfers, and Souxsie & The Banshees, has turned into a one-weekend Chicago festival that Lady Gaga co-headlined last year. As leaked a while ago, Foo Fighters, Muse and Eminem all play this year, as will Coldplay, Cee Lo Green, and My Morning Jacket along with the reunited Cars and the continuing-to-be-reunited Big Audio Dynamite and Death From Above 1979, and a bunch of other bands which may or may not be worth the ticket price depending on how you feel about the headliners and generally seeing bands in big, hot, outdoor crowded parks (Lollapalooza happens in Chicago's Grant Park from August 5th - 7th).
Full 2011 Lineup and a couple of videos (one from 1991, one from 2010), below...
Lord Huron @ Bowery Ballroom during CMJ (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Tickets are also still on sale for the Femi show happening Wednesday (4/27) at Music Hall of Williamsburg which now includes an opening set by Lord Huron who the LA Times has said "occasionally recalls Fleet Foxes, 'At Dawn'-era My Morning Jacket and Panda Bear." Lord just finished a string of dates with The Rural Alberta Advantage.
The Lord Huron Brooklyn/Femi show was previously listed as a day off on Lord's tour schedule which also includes a headlining show at Mercury Lounge on Thursday (4/28). Tickets are still on sale for that NYC show which will get you opening sets by North Highlands, The Wilderness of Manitoba, and Spanish Prisoners.
All tour dates are listed below...
Lord Huron has a slew of SXSW shows next week, as you can see in the list of dates below. Not long after that the Lord will hit the road with The Rural Alberta Advantage in April, but will then continue off on his/their own, eventually hitting Mercury Lounge on April 28th. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
All tour dates, a stream of the Mighty EP and the video for one of those tracks, "The Stranger", is below.
Tennis at Terminal 5 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Tennis supported The Walkmen at Terminal 5 and headlined their own show at Mercury Lounge at the beginning of December, and the romance continues in the new year as the husband/wife duo will hit the road for a tour kicking off this weekend in the UK. After bouncing around Europe for three weeks, the band will head back to their native soil for a string of US dates which include the larger Bowery Ballroom on March 2nd (tickets) and the Bell House in Brooklyn on March 3rd (tickets). Both NYC dates and a chunk of their tour is with La Sera and Holiday Shores.
Tennis's full tour schedule, which will conclude in Austin at SXSW features Lord Huron on select dates as well, is below with some videos...

Lia Ices @ Bowery Ballroom
"The sweetest white lie of the CMJ Music Marathon came from the folky songwriter Lia Ices, leading her band at the Lower East Side club Pianos on Thursday night. While half the crowd chatted indifferently, she sang, "For only you I sing, for only you." Yet Ms. Ices, whose debut album is due in January, was playing CMJ, along with more than 1,000 other groups, for precisely the opposite reason. She was seeking a chance to be heard, sooner or later, by a larger audience." [NY Times]Neon Indian co-headlined the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars?) Group CMJ showcase at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night, 10/23. After a super long week of shooting day and night, Amanda didn't make it to their midnight set. She did get to the show though and caught openers Braids (6pm), Fake Problems (6:45), Lord Huron (7:30), Lia Ices (8:30), Lower Dens (9:15), and Wild Nothing (10:00). She left before Dom. I also went to the show but got there close to when Neon Indian was finishing (I caught Surfer Blood's entire 1am set).
Did you miss Neon Indian too? The next chance to see them is tonight (10/29), at Brooklyn Bowl where they're playing with the buzz-tacular lineup of Prince Rama and Apache Beat. Tickets are still on sale, and I have a pair you can win.
Details on how you can win, with tonight's flyer (under the pics), and more pictures from the Bowery Ballroom show (sans Neon Indian), below...
Ex-Titus Andronicus member Andrew Cedermark will appear at Pitchfork's #OFFLINE party on 10/22 (one day before Titus Andronicus play the mini fest). Andrew Cedermark also plays the Microphone Memory Emotion & Rose Quartz Showcase at Shea Stadium that same night, with Ecstatic Sunshine, Family Portrait, Street Chant, Fluffy Lumbers, and Nude Beach. You can also catch him at the Underwater Peoples showcase at Glasslands the day before (today, 10/21). Underwater Peoples will also feature appearances from The Crayon Fields, Fabulous Diamonds, Air Waves, La Big Vic, and Guy Blackman, and will kick off at 8PM.
You can also catch the Crayon Fields Saturday at our day party at Public Assembly. Titus Andronicus too.
New Jersey's Big Troubles have nothing to do with high taxes, the turnpike, or a superfluous amount of hair gel, but have a lot to do with noise-damaged shoegazey 80s-style pop. The band will play #OFFLINE on 10/22, and will also play Bruar Falls on 10/23 with Woven Bones, and Eternal Summers. The day after CMJ comes to a close (10/24) look for them at Living Room with Eternal Summers, but only if you are a young kid or parent of one. The band will also play Mercury Lounge on 11/12 with Magic Kids and Bosco Delray (tickets) in addition to dates at Shea Stadium (11/13) and Glasslands (11/21).
LA's Lord Huron is in town to play three shows. He'll play the Forcefield CMJ showcase at Pianos with The So So Glos, Wild Nothing, Woven Bones, Violens, and La Sera. Doors open at 7:45pm. The next day (10/23), the band will play the #OFFLINE show at Brooklyn Bowl, and then hit Bowery Ballroom to team up with Surfer Blood, Neon Indian, DOM, Wild Nothing, Lower Dens, Lia Ices, Fake Problems, Braids, MA.Mentor and The Static Jacks.
Glasser kicks off a three-show CMJ run tonight (10/21)

So So Glos Fans (more by Zach Stern)
The lineup has been announced for this year's SUNY Purchase Fall Fest, an annual one-day, students-only festival which will take place on November 5th in the SUNY Purchase Student Center (The Stood). Fall Fest '10 (aka Halloween 2) will be headlined by Raekwon, and features a very varied lineup of other acts including Death who just announced a NEW album...
BASEMENT OF WHAT WAS ONCE KNOWN AS GROOVESVILLE STUDIOS - DETROIT, MI - May 7th, 2010The SUNY show is Death's only at the moment.
"After searching for almost eight hours, I removed a box with a Master in it and vaguely saw some big red letters on the box below it. I shinned the light on this box to clearly see the writing in big red letters DEATH. I screamed with excitement DEATH!!, DEATH!!, DEATH!! Everyone in the building starting to scream and wildly cheer and applause. Upon seeing those tapes, it brought it all back, David had written those big red letters on the tape. Engineer Jim Vitti had jokingly drew a skull and crossbones on the box after the name to which David did not like telling him "We are not that kind of Death". I was full of emotion, I cried. We were all elated, Jacque was elated, I called up Dannis who was in Vermont and he began to joyfully celebrate. I thought about David. If David were here with us all that has happened to Death up to this point would pale in comparison to what we found today. The tapes were right where Brian said they were sitting there awaiting us for 34 years." - Bobby Hackney
Spiritual, Mental, Physical is the new Death CD/LP and it will be released 01/25/11.
The So So Glos will also be performing at SUNY, and are about to embark on a Five Borough NYC tour to celebrate the release of their new EP, Low Back Chain Shift, which came out Tuesday, October 12.

Matthew Dear @ MHOW in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
As mentioned, Pitchfork will be hosting three days of shows at Brooklyn Bowl during, but-it-looks-like/probably completely unaffiliated with, CMJ this year (Thursday/Friday/Saturday CMJ week). "Brooklyn Bowl is located at 61 Wythe Avenue between N. 11th and N. 12th streets. The festival starts at 2 p.m. each day, with doors opening at 1 p.m. Tickets are $10, both in advance and day of the show." They're calling it the #OFFLINE Festival.
Based on the lineups and start time, it looks like each #OFFLINE day will be about a 12 hour show. No set times yet though, but the full lineups and ticket links are below...
Matthew Dear is one of the biggest names on the list (he plays Saturday), and it will be one of three CMJ week shows for Matthew. His first is Friday night at Webster Hall with Jamaica and Dominique Young Unique. His third is later on Saturday at Public Assembly for the FIXED/Making Time Party with Matthew Dear, Crocodiles, Holy Ghost!, Javelin, Gold Panda, Jamaica, and Kisses.
The FIXED/Making Time party starts after the BrooklynVegan party which is also happening at Public Assembly that same day. Just to be clear:
SATURDAY OCTOBER 23RD
* BrooklynVegan @ Public Assembly 12-6pm (free - more details TBA)
* FIXED/Making Time @ Public Assembly 9pm-late (tickets)
* Pitchfork @ Brooklyn Bowl 2pm-late (tickets)
