No Age

Titus Andronicus

No Age, now on tour, headlined Market Hotel in Brooklyn on Monday night (11/10). Like they did one night earlier at Santos Party House, Titus Andronicus opened, except this time they were joined by special guest and fellow NJ resident Ted Leo for a cover of NJ band Misfits' "Where Eagles Dare". This is the same cover Titus played with NJ's Yo La Tengo during a NJ pride moment at Brooklyn venue McCarren Pool's final free show over the summer.

No Age's set got especially crazy towards the end as people started getting trampled and knocked over as other people were charging towards the stage. Soft Circle and Sisters opened the show.

Titus just announced a tour with Los Campesinos!. More pictures from Market Hotel, including one of No Age's setlist, below...

Islands have three shows coming up this week. The second is at Market Hotel in Brooklyn on Saturday (11/8) and the third is at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin (less than 24 hours later) on Sunday afternoon (for which we're currently running a free ticket contest).

What does that mean? (nothing really). That means that those in NYC can experience Alden Penner (Unicorn 1) (Clues) on Tuesday and Nick Thorburn (Unicorn 2) (Islands) on Saturday. All Islands dates below...

Fucked Up

After missing out on Fucked Up's two previous night's of NYC fun, I dropped by their gig at Market Hotel (10/16).

I missed Canadian punks Inepsy, but caught Vivian Girls whose sound bounced nicely around the wedge-shaped room. Lately they've been reminding me of Electrelane (who I'm also secretly hoping they turn into).

It was my first time seeing Fucked Up, and from the pictures, videos, and constant write-ups I found it hard to anticipate what would actually happen. The Village Voice wrote, "It took all of no time at all for a moshpit to break out...there is, so far, nothing comfortable at all about this show. It's quite savage".

Maybe the vibe was way different, but the Market Hotel show was anything but uncomfortable (less uncomfortable too since they started requesting that people smoke in the backrooms, due to the space's one window of ventilation).

Fucked Up took the stage quickly (which is always appreciated) and went on to host the evening like a house party show. They took requests, handed the mic off to crowd-members and friends (see below), and thanked the crowd graciously afterward for coming. There were a couple references to the show the night before at Bowery Ballroom along the lines of, "Where were you guys last night?" - directed toward the twenty/thirty or so kids in front diving on each other to get their singalongs into the mic.

Some highlights were the the creepy interlude of "David Comes to Life" sang from the middle of the crowd, the transition from Hidden World opener "Crusades" to Chemistry of Modern Life opener "Son the Father," and "Crooked Head" with Vivian Girls on back-up vox.

To cap the night, a guy named Mike sang a cover, followed by a buy named Ian. Pink Eyes stood to the side with a huge grin on his face, announced that Ian's performance couldn't be topped, and the band closed with him singing another cover.

Amazing Baby

Wednesday (8/20) has so many good NYC show options it's criminal. Top of the list for me is probably Seattle's BOAT at Union Hall, who (as listed in last week's post) played a great show on Sunday at Cake Shop, one of the most fun shows I've been to all year. Add locals My Teenage Stride to the Union Hall bill and I would say it's a can't miss, but... there's also The Muslims at Union Pool; Vivian Girls/BFF at Death by Audio; and week two of Passion Pit's residency at Pianos (to which there are still tickets, so much for my own McGee-esque overblown hyperbole).

If you do go to Pianos, might I suggest you sneak upstairs beforehand to catch Patrick Bower. He fronts one of my favorite local bands, World Without Magic, but has also just completed a solo album, Beach Closed, which will be out in September. His solo band (at least at this show) will feature members of The End of the World, The Art of Shooting and Daylight's for the Birds. You can hear a couple tracks from Beach Closed on Patrick's MySpace and you can download an MP3 above, and watch a video for the song further down this post.

Grand Archives
Grand Archives

This Friday's Seaport Music Festival show should be a good one -- Grand Archives and Violens. Grand Archives' debut has been a real grower for me, one that I find myself listening to a lot. The CSNY vibe to the music really works, they put on a pretty good live show too and make room for choice covers. I like them more than their Sub Pop labelmates Fleet Foxes, but that's just me. And I'm anxious to catch Violens again, not having seen them play since May. I've worn out their three-song EP, though "Trance-Like Turn" (from a Green Owl Records compilation, video below) is their best song yet.

For those Brooklyn Vegan readers in the UK, Violens are opening for MGMT in November. Also playing those MGMT shows will be Amazing Baby, who remain my favorite new NYC band of 2008. That would be a hard tour to pass up if I lived over there, even though I'd say the headliner is the weakest live band of the three.

Amazing Baby also play this Friday (Aug 22) at Market Hotel where there is apparently open bar (Colt 45) all night long. I've seen them four times now -- each time a slightly different line-up but always good. Speaking of good and free, you should download Amazing Baby's Infinite Fucking Cross EP from their website. There's also an even newer song for download on top of this post. It's the same song they perform live in the video below (where you'll also find tour dates and other videos too).....

Mookie Singerman of Genghis Tron in Belfort (Photo Rod | Le-HibOO.com)

Good News: Genghis Tron announced another tour of the US.
Better News: It's a headlining tour.
Best News: The band has lined up one NYC date, October 25th (during CMJ), at Schmarket Schmotel (where they have played before) with an absolutely killer lineup of DMBQ, An Albatross, Akimbo, and Monotonix with more TBA.

When Genghis Tron finishes with their previously mentioned dates with Baroness in Canada, the trio will hit the road with checkboard-obsessives Yip Yip playing dates with Black Cobra, Behold The Arctopus, and Lovepump United labelmates (Mookie Singerman's label) Clipd Beaks.

The band is currently on tour with The Faint (who recently played Terminal 5, but not with Genghis Tron) and Jaguar Love (who recently played Southpaw).

Monotonix are also playing Knitting Factory on October 24th (one night before Market Hotel & also during CMJ). Monotonix are also on tour as we speak. All Genghis Tron dates below...

Vivian Girls

Henry Joseph Darger (April 12[?], 1892-April 13, 1973) was a reclusive American writer and artist who worked as a janitor in Chicago, Illinois. He has become famous for his posthumously discovered 15,145-page fantasy manuscript called The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, along with several hundred drawings and watercolor paintings illustrating the story. Darger's work has become one of the most celebrated examples of outsider art. [Wikipedia]
Love is All @ Market Hotel

There are a lot of bands named after Darger's Vivian Girls. Brooklyn's Vivian Girls are the ones commonly found playing shows presented by Todd P like the one pictured here in which they opened for Love is All at Market Hotel on Saturday (June 14, 2008). Vivian Girls are also playing Santos Party House on Thursday with The Muslims. The Muslims are also playing Market Hotel on Tuesday. Vivian Girls play Market Hotel again on June 28th. More pictures from Saturday's show below....

Love is All @ Market Hotel

Love is All delivered another wildly entertaining set in NYC on Saturday night, this time at Market Hotel in Bushwick. The scene was sticky, hot and sweaty - a sauna full of jubilant fans who made their way out in the thunder and lightning to see the band from Sweden play in Brooklyn. The storm brought significant downpours, but that did nothing to cool off the steaming temperature at Market Hotel. [The Sky Report]
The third and last NYC Love is All show (for now) is tonight. The first was at Cake Shop. More pictures from Market Hotel (June 14, 2008) below....

Titus Andronicus @ Market Hotel

Titus Andronicus @ Market Hotel

Before there was Black Lips, there was Titus Andronicus....at Market Hotel on Thursday night (June 5, 2008).

Market Hotel was a full house for Titus Andronicus, even though they were the first of three second of four bands that night. Named after the bloodiest of all Shakespearean plays, Titus Andronicus have aptly christened themselves with a name that references a story of revenge. The crowd consisted of mostly of twenty-somethings happy to hear their own private thoughts howled from the stage. Despite the recurring themes of hate and self-loathing, the show had a surprisingly upbeat vibe to it - people were smiling. Their high intensity, crowd-pleasing shows prove that Titus Andronicus is a band that is ready to headline on its own. [Trendwhore]
One down, four more NYC shows to go for Titus before July 13th. More Market Hotel pictures below....

Thursday night's show at Market Hotel was Black Lips' fifth NYC-area show in a week. It was supposed to take place at Ridgewood Temple. It was packed and hot and it ended a little early. More pics and video below....

Black Lips @ MAxwells



here's what happened: due to recent fights at the venue's weekend parties, the 83rd Precinct & the NYS Liquor Commission have suddenly, temporarily banned -all- alcohol from the Ridgewood Temple - we can't sell it (we had applied & paid for a license) and you can't bring it in yourself. We went to pick up our license to sell today and this is the news we got! Faced with the prospect of a completely dry Black Lips show (that wouldn't work now, would it?), we've decided to relocate the show. Sorry, this all happened with no notice! S'OK THO - THIS SHOW WILL BE AWESOME & MARKET HOTEL IS TERRIFIC!!

"Stairwell is a small independent gallery in Providence founded in January of 2006 and run by Haley O'Connor and Natalie Purkey. The gallery is deeply rooted in Providence's art community, and prioritizes curatorial creativity and support of all the artists that it works with. Building relationships between artists, curators, and the larger community of Providence is privileged over commercial gain. If you have ever shown your work at Stairwell, played a show there, come to an opening and eaten the homemade food that the curators have prepared, or stopped in to visit, you know that this is a rare and magical venture. As such, it is inevitably risky. After a car accident in Los Angeles a few months ago (in which, thank goodness, nobody was hurt, but a hybrid rental car was nearly totaled) Haley is now deeply in debt to her insurance company. Although Stairwell has been growing in every way, this financial setback creates a significant obstacle, which we think that the community has the power to remove, or at least mitigate. It is time for all of us who have enjoyed the expansive generosity of Stairwell to return the favor and give back a little to support this singular and inspiring gallery." [Todd P]

The Usaisamonster are also playing JAMAICA BAY EXPERIMENTAL MARSHLAND RESTORATION PROJECT earlier the same day.

Love is All are coming back from Sweden to visit the East Coast in June. Their trip will include a show at the much-too-small-for-them Cake Shop (part of PopFest), and a show at the Todd P venue Market Hotel in Brooklyn. All tour dates below...
