Autre Ne Veut @ BrooklynVegan SXSW 2013
"It was 85 degrees [Saturday] afternoon with the sun beating down hard on the pavement at Old Emo's. So the crowd at the Brooklyn Vegan day party instinctively packed into the shady spots by the stage for Autre Ne Veut's set. Arthur Ashin laid out a series of songs from Anxiety and, despite the punishing weather, put on a solid show." [Pitchfork]Delorean (Wednesday), Autre Ne Veut (Saturday), and Doldrums (Saturday) all played solid sets at BrooklynVegan day parties at SXSW this year, but sadly, at the moment only one of them has NYC shows announced. That would be Doldrums whose tour dates bring them to Mercury Lounge in May, and even sooner to 285 Kent in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 13 which is one day after they share a bill in Philly with Delorean and Autre Ne Veut. That right there is a reason to be in Pennsylvania on April 12. Tickets for the $12 Making Time show at Voyeur are still available (and Jacques Greene is on the bill too).

Tanlines at House of Vans in June (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Tanlines and fellow tropical pop synthesist Blood Diamonds (who have shared a bill in the past) have scheduled a last minute performance happening in NYC on Friday (10/19) at Le Bain with Making Time resident DJs Dave P and Sammy Slice. The show is presented by Urban Outfitters and takes place during CMJ (though it isn't an official CMJ show) and is free with RSVP. The show flier is below.
Tanlines will also headline their largest hometown show yet at Webster Hall on November 29. No openers have been announced yet. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/19) at noon. All Tanlines dates (including a stop at FFF Fest in Austin) are listed below.
Speaking of Dave P and Le Bain, Dave is also one of the party promoter/DJ duo FIXED with JDH. They're celebrating their eighth anniversary at Le Bain on October 26. That show is totally free to the public and the flier is below.
Videos/streams from Tanlines and Blood Diamonds, both show fliers, and a list of all dates below.

Brooklyn's Lemonade, whose new album Diver comes out later this month via True Panther, will play a local show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 2 with Teengirl Fantasy and Elite Gymnastics. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (5/16) at noon.
Last month, Lemonade released a 12" for Diver single, "Neptune" featuring remixes from Mike Simonetti, Sinjin Hawke, Pasternak, and Jacques Renault. Grab the original HERE and stream all four remixes below.
The MHOW show will be the first NYC show for Minneapolis K-Pop influenced electronic duo Elite Gymnastics, who just wrapped up a tour with Sleigh Bells and Javelin. They've got a bunch of free releases on their tumblr, including the recently released RUIN 3, which compiles covers and remixes of tracks from the impressive RUIN 1 and 2, which have since been combined for a not-free vinyl release on Acephale. RUIN 3 includes remixes by CFCF, LOL Boys, and Physical Therapy and a cover by How to Dress Well, all of which you can download above or stream below. It also includes remixes by Natalie Bootleg and Anime Skyscraper, the latter of which you can stream below.
Their next release, RUIN 4, is available for pre-order at the Acephale webstore as a bundle with poster, buttons, and t-shirt. The CD includes two previously unreleased tracks from the RUIN sessions, all of RUIN 3, and more TBA.
Speaking of Sleigh Bells, they've announced a set of July tour dates that include Making Time 12th Anniversary HYPER-RAGER in Philly. All dates are listed, along with the above-mentioned streams, below...
Though most of the lineup has yet to be revealed - except for King Krule, Metronomy (who also play MHOW), Purity Ring, Fat Trel (pictured above) and Bleached (more on them in a sec), this year's CMJ Fader Fort RSVP is up and running for their 10/21 and 10/22 shows at 443 w 18th St in Manhattan. More details, including the lineup, TBA soon.
Those dates are the same as the two free BrooklynVegan parties happening at Public Assembly in Brooklyn (no RSVP required), though Fader Fort runs 2-9pm, and the BV parties are from noon-6pm.
Vice's Noisey party with Twin Shadow happens at Santos Party House on the night of 10/19, and as previously mentioned, Twin Shadow are also playing another show which is now announced and is also free and also requires RSVP. The newly-announced show also happens at night, but on Saturday, 10/22, at Le Bain. It's the "Making Time" party and Seekae is also on the bill.
Making Time is FIXED's Philly sister, and FIXED have a CMJ party of their own as well. Their showcase will take place at Public Assembly on 10/19 with Teengirl Fantasy, Still Corners, Lemonade, Chad Valley, Radio People, Warm Ghost, CFCF (DJ Set), and Resident DJs JDH & Dave P (who also DJs Making Time). Tycho was originally scheduled to play this showcase but has since cancelled all of his CMJ shows in favor of a single pre-CMJ show happening at MHOW this Sunday. Tickets for the FIXED show are on sale.
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)
* BrooklynVegan metal @ Union Pool 7pm-late ($5.00 or CMJ badge at the door)
We (BrooklynVegan) will also be at Public Assembly all day on Friday, October 22nd (details TBA), and at Music Hall of Williamsburg on the Thursday night.

LCD Soundsystem @ Sasquatch Festival 2010 (more by Chris Graham)
LCD Soundsystem still don't have any NYC dates coming up (maybe they're holding out for a big announcement?), but they will be in the area (if you're willing to drive to take a bus/train/plane). The band is spending the rest of August and part of September in Europe before returning to the US for a September 24th show at Naval Cruise Terminal at the Philadelphia Naval Yard. The lineup also includes Sleigh Bells (who just played Governors Isle) and DJs brought by the Making Time party (who are co-presenting it). Tickets are on sale.
LCD and Sleigh Bells play the Virgin Mobile FreeFest the next night (9/25) at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland, and other dates. They're all listed below.
Shows after that include an October 1st show at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY (not sure if it's open to the public) and more across the country, before a return to the UK in November. The first leg of those US dates is with Sleigh Bells, the second is with Hot Chip, who play Central Park SummerStage tonight (8/4) with Hercules & Love Affair and Holy Ghost.
Speaking of Making Time, they'll be hosting a repeat of their 2009 pool party (at an actual pool) at the Flying W Airport and Resort in Medford, NJ on Sunday, August 15th. Deerhunter will again play with DJs, swimming, etc. Tickets are on sale. Deerhunter play a free NYC show at Pier 54 on August 12th.
LCD videos and all tour dates are below...
If there's such a thing as an earthy disco queen, it's Ida No.Glass Candy plays a NXNE show on Thursday, June 17th (tonight) with Trust at Wrongbar.
The silken-voiced singer for cosmic beat-pumping duo Glass Candy isn't as urbane as you might expect. In fact, many of her lyrics, melodies and themes are inspired by hikes in the lush tree-lined hills that surround her Portland home.
"I go on really long walks and won't come back for four hours," says No. "I'll go for a walk and a theme will come up or I'll get overcome by a feeling."
She then conveys these vocal lines to long-time musical partner Johnny Jewel, who writes and composes Glass Candy's analog-synth-based jams. These writing sessions have become a long-distance affair of late. Jewel recently relocated to Montreal to be with his romantic interest. [Now Magazine]
Two days after NYC, Glass Candy will join Sleigh Bells for an Independence Day show at Bamboo Bar in Philly. The "Making Time" party is part of Sleigh Bells' July tour that leads up their show at Governors Island with M.I.A.. Sleigh Bells also play the free Creators Project shindig on June 26th (which is now "sold out").
Tons of Glass Candy's electro-pop is streaming on their official Facebook. Videos and all tour dates are below...
Simian Mobile Disco @ Williamsburg Waterfront 2009 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Simian Mobile Disco will be DJing at Fixed's March 11th party at (Le) Poisson Rouge. The show will be first of a quarterly (4x a year) residency for the UK duo at Fixed. Tickets for the first date are on sale. The other exact NY show dates are still TBA.
SMD have some other DJ sets planned too - a few in March around the LPR show, and a few in May around Sasquach. Presumably that will also be around the time when their second quarter NYC show happens, possibly at Santos Party House where six more Fixed parties are already scheduled. Full list below.
The video for their song "Cruel intentions," which features Beth Ditto on vocals, is below. It was on their latest record, Temporary Pleasure, which came out in August 2009 on Wichita Recordings. In February, SMD released an EP, Extra Temporary, which "compiles the four tracks from the bonus second CD of Temporary Pleasure, along with the two bonus tracks from the iTunes version of the album." The video, all tour dates, a flyer and the upcoming Fixed schedule are below...
"The management of the Flying W have decided that our radness is just too much for their family establishment..."
members of !!! take a dip...
!!! embark today (September 3rd) on a short East Coast tour, dates below. The band will stop this Friday at Terminal 5 for the first night of Warp20 with Battles, Flying Lotus and Pivot. Tickets are still on sale.
Two days later, on September 6th, !!! will play Jersey/Philly's final Making Time Pool Party of the summer (remember, the Dan Deacon/No Age/Deerhunter pool party with an actual pool?). Plans for the Making Time party have been shuffled a bit after the Flying W Pool and Resort dropped out as the venue. The September 6th show will be happening, but not there - not even in Jersey. Instead, Bamboo Bar in Philadelphia (which has a pool of its own) will host the event. Also in house will be resident DJs Dave P, Mike Z and many others.
Check out a video put together for the event, the flyer, the story behind the gig and all !!! tour dates, below...
Flying W Airport & Pool in Medford, NJ
We previously mentioned the two "pool party" stops on the upcoming No Age/Dan Deacon/Deerhunter tour. One will be at the Williamsburg Waterfront on August 2nd. The second will be in Medford, NJ, at a place called the Flying W Airport & Resort on August 1st. Tickets for that show are on sale.
Unlike the "pool parties" last summer at McCarren, or the ones this summer at the Williamsburg Waterfront, it looks like the Flying W party, located not far from Philadelphia (R5 is co-promoting), will actually involve a pool (that has water in it) (and that is shaped like an airplane) (see above).
And that's not the only "Flying W Pool Party" at the resort this summer. The spot is also hosting at least three more events, the first of which is an edition of Making Time with a whole host of DJs including Dave P, listed below. That'll happen this Saturday, June 27th. Tickets are on sale. The other two currently scheduled gigs at Flying W are another Making Time on September 5th, and "TBA" on September 19th.
Full lineup for the June event, with a flyer and more details, below...
