Geoff Rickly w/ UN at Saint Vitus in August (more by Greg Cristman)
Geoff Rickly's had a busy year with a new United Nations album and two singles with his band No Devotion. He's already set to kick off next year in style with a one-off solo show in Atlantic City on January 3, the first Saturday of 2015, at the Dante Hall Theater of The Arts. Opening that show is I Am the Avalanche/Movielife singer Vinnie Caruana and Back and Forth singer Matty Carlock. Tickets are on sale now, and there's a complimentary afterparty for the 21+ at The Boneyard. Show flyer below.
Vinnie Caruana has a few other solo appearances in the area, including The Studio at Webster Hall with John Nolan on 12/29 (tickets), and opening the NYC stop of Motion City Soundtrack's Commit This to Memory tour along with the ex-Passion Pit power poppers Team Spirit. He's also on the Boston and Silver Spring stops and you can still get tickets to all three.
A few days before the Webster show his band I Am the Avalanche plays a previously discussed NYC one-off at MHOW on Friday, December 26. Since we last spoke, it's been announced that IATA will be joined by the great newer Long Island punk band Iron Chic and The Gaslight Anthem's pals The Scandals. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Iron Chic also have a new split 7" with Low Culture (mems The Marked Men) on Dead Broke (Mike from Iron Chic's label) and Dirt Cult (Chris from Low Culture's label). Check out a stream of each band from that split (via Noisey) below...

Garage/punk label Dirtnap Records is releasing a new label sampler with a previously unreleased song from Montreal's Sonic Avenues, "New Vogues," as well as previously released material from The Marked Men, Radioactivity, Mind Spiders, Missing Monuments, Bad Sports, Sugar Stems and more. A full stream of the sampler premieres in this post, and you can listen below.
Dirtnap is also throwing a showcase in NYC on May 3 at Cake Shop with Sonic Avenues, Michigan's Legendary Wings, Houston's Something Fierce and Ottowa's Steve Adamyk Band. That show is totally FREE. More details on the flyer below.
The showcase is one of two NYC stops on Sonic Avenues' upcoming tour in support of their new album, Mistakes, due out on April 15. In addition to "New Vogues" from the Dirtnap sampler, you can get a taste of that new album from two other tracks, "In Your Head" and "Automatic," both streaming below. The songs are definitely of the scrappy garage punk style the label's become known for, but like labelmates The Marked Men, these are punk songs with a real strong pop side (though definitely not "pop punk"). Check them out.
Sonic Avenues' tour also hits Shea Stadium (5/2) the day before the Cake Shop show. Other bands TBA. They also play the Dirtnap showcase at Ottawa Explosion (6/12-15) with labelmates The Marked Men, Steve Adamyk Band, and Voicemail.
All of their dates are listed, with the song streams and their LP artwork, below...
