ongoing construction on Houston St's sinkhole (via Bonnie DeWitt)
You may have heard that yesterday (5/22) a water main ruptured and caused a giant sinkhole on Houston St. outside Katz's Deli which flooded their basement (but didn't cause them to close), affected other nearby business, and caused both shows at Mercury Lounge to move to new venues. An updated report from NBC reads:
City officials said five commercial buildings and eight residential buildings were without water for several hours, but the main was repaired and service was restored by about 1 a.m. Thursday. Crews worked overnight to make road repairs, which were expected to be completed sometime Friday.Mercury Lounge is back open tonight (5/23), including the 6:30 show with Baby Baby, the 7:30 show with American Aquarium and Elijah Ocean, and the 10:30 show with Rebelmatic and Radio Daze.
Basements of several buildings were flooded, including Katz's, owner Jake Dell said. An entire garbage truck's worth of food had to be thrown out.
Initially, tonight's late show at Merc was MO, but she was moved to Music Hall of Williamsburg weeks ago, nothing to do with the sinkhole. The rising MO meanwhile announced a Webster Hall show yesterday and that's on sale now.

Following an early live outing from Prince Innocence, she effortlessly commands the attention of the jostling room, her performance is completely natural, professional and expressive. Bounding around the small stage in a brilliantly baggy t-shirt, proudly brandishing the Chess Club Records crest, she is a bundle of frenetic energy, an energy which translates into the music she produces so succinctly. The opening to 'Maiden' blasts out early in the set; its crystal clear guitar riff, rumbling bass synth and manufactured drums are a potent song-writing weapon used to full effect.
With another twinkling opening hook that summons an almost Yuletide feeling, latest track 'Glass' comes flying out next and is a definite highlight. "What a pleasant sensation!" is belted out at the top-end of her powerful range, confirming how prolific a chorus-creator MØ is as. The aforementioned 'Pilgrim' and the closing 'Crazy For You' are equally impressive; the former making use of the fidgeting monochrome projection behind, showing playful, immaculately timed visuals of vintage horn sections and swing dancing. - [The Line of Best Fit]
With only three released tracks to her name, Danish singer Karen Marie Ørsted -- you can call her MØ -- is already garnering a lot of attention and comparisons to other female electronic artists who shall remain nameless. You can stream all those songs below. MØ is in NYC as we speak playing a couple shows here before heading to SXSW. She's at Santos tonight (3/7) for a FREE Popshop party with Watch the Duck; and will play Glasslands on Friday with Alpine and White Prism (tickets). All tour dates are listed below.
Some in NYC may have caught her during CMJ 2012. She was here with a film crew and you can watch a short documentary about her CMJ below.
Eternal Summers at Knitting Factory in June (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Roanoke, VA indie pop band Eternal Summers will be heading out later this year as a support act on Nada Surf's tour which comes to NYC on December 14 for a show at Bowery Ballroom. Nada Surf also plays Bowery Ballroom again the next night (12/15) but no opener has been announced for that show. Tickets for both of Nada Surf's Bowery Ballroom shows are on sale now.
Eternal Summers will be in NYC much sooner though, seeing as they're scheduled to play at least three CMJ week shows. First they'll play the Kanine Records/Wild Honey Pie/Etnies/Brooklyn Brewery/BreakThru Radio day party at Cameo Gallery on October 19 with Valleys, Beach Day, Bleeding Rainbow, Zambri, Moon King, Roommates, and DJ sets from Patrick Wimberly (of Chairlift), Thomas Fekete (of Surfer Blood), Allen Blickle (of Baroness), and Xray Eyeballs. The party is free and starts at noon (flier below). Then they'll play the Dirty Laundry & Get Bent party at Pianos on October 20 with Har Mar Superstar, The Sundelles, Fergus & Geronimo, Shark?, Squarehead, Radical Dads, and MØ. Tickets for that show are on sale now and the flier is below.
Eternal Summers will also play our BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20) which is totally free. More info on that coming soon. Meanwhile we announced the lineup of our Friday day party at the same venue.
The band released their new album, Correct Behavior, over the summer and already have videos for its tracks, "Millions" and "You Kill." They recently finished up the video shoot for "Good As You," which you'll be seeing in the near future and are also holding a video contest for "I Love You." Entries are due October 31. You can watch those two aforementioned videos below, where you'll also find show flyers and a list of upcoming dates.
