Next week, look for Gun Outfit to release their latest long-player Hard Coming Down due on April 2nd via PPM (run by Dean Spunt of No Age). The twelve track effort features "Flyin' Low, Maria" and "Lau Blues" (both streaming below), dark garage epics that recall Dinosaur Jr, some of Slint's somber clean tones and Hole's softer moments.
Gun Outfit are currently braving the interstate system of North America, and will head to NYC for a pair of dates at Cake Shop on 5/2 with Piano Movers and Union Pool on 5/3.
All tour dates are listed below below.
No Age at FYF Fest 2011 (more by Nathanael Turner)
No Age are heading out on a college tour this month, starting with Wesleyan on March 8 with EULA. They tweeted "anyone who wants to go to the wesleyan college CT show on 3/8 or the show at bennington college VT on 3/9 hit us up, we will get you IN!!!", though they then followed that with "OH SHIT!!! sorry we can't get anyone in to those shows unless you are students, but come meet us after! KEGGER PARTY!!!! sorry friends." All dates on the college tour are listed below.
In possibly related news, the day before the Wesleyan show, Pterodactyl plays Death by Audio (3/7) with a special guest. The venue says, "im Not gOing to be Able to tell you who the special Guests arE." Hmmm...
Meanwhile head to Death By Audio to check out Tyevek tonight!
All No Age dates are listed below...
Highly influential streetpunk band Sham 69 will reunite their 'classic' 1977-1979 lineup (or at least most of it) to play a pair of US shows including Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas and Chaos in Tejas Austin. The 1977-1979 lineup is:
Jimmy Pursey: vocalsThis lineup, also known as the Pursey/Parsons lineup (which may or may not have Mark Cain on drums this time around), is not to be confused with the version of the band led by Tim V (otherwise known as the Tim V lineup) (that's Tim V, Neil Harris, Ian Whitewood, Tony Feedback, and Al Campbell). The Tim V lineup operates out of Sham69.com, and both versions are currently playing live.
Dave Parsons: guitar
Dave Tregunna: bass
Mark Cain: drums
Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) joins names like Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Toys That Kill, and many more for Punk Rock Bowling 2012 in Las Vegas, NV on May 25-28, 2012. The fest also features pool parties, a bowling tournament, late-night club and much more in addition to the outdoor festival appearances. Tickets go on sale soon.
Rancid also have some anniversary shows coming up with Cock Sparrer.
Youth of Today are also playing the Black N Blue Bowl this year in NYC with many other hardcore bands incluiding The Mob who also play Chaos in Tejas this year (May 31-June 3).
Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) is one of many new additions to Chaos in Tejas which also added No Age, pygmylush, Screaming Females, Secret Prostitutes, Slug Guts (Australia), S U R V I V E, and Tenement. These additions are not to be confused with the set of bands that were announced earlier this week. Latest Chaos in Tejas lineup listed in full below.
Lineups and videos below...
Total Abuse - Prison Sweat art
If you weren't paying attention, you might have missed Total Abuse's Mutt, which surfaced its ugly head last year on Post Present Medium Records (Dean Spunt of No Age's imprint). The eleven track ripper encompassed elements of early negative hardcore, wearing its Void, Necros, and Black Flag influences on their tattered, punk-patch covered sleeve.
Austin's Total Abuse definitely have similar influences to bands like Cold Sweat, Men's Interest, Sex Vid and some of the Youth Attack crew, but also dabble in noise/power-electronics on their latest LP Prison Sweat which is out NOW via PPM. The LP, which opens with seven-minutes of brutal noise, blasts off by the second track "Early Morning" and is propelled with a similar furious energy throughout the remainder of the LP until it hits the final title track. From there Prison Sweat moves into a different mode, falling in line with side-2-of-My War Black Flag and latter feedback-obsessed hardcore bands like Drunkdriver or Pissed Jeans, but also venturing into borderline Swans/Godflesh style noise destruction. Stream all of Prison Sweat for the first time below.
Total Abuse only has one show scheduled as of now, at the PPM 10 year anniversary party in LA at The Smell on 11/4 - 11/6. The three day festival will feature appearances from No Age, Abe Vigoda, High Places, John Wiese, Gun Outfit, Dunes, Eric Copeland, Bleached (who play a BV CMJ party on 10/21) and many more, including an appearance from Total Abuse-related project White Dog, whose new album Triumurate is also out now on PPM. Stream tracks from White Dog, and all of Total Abuse's Prison Sweat below, alongside details of the PPM Anniversary show.

Punk rock long ago transcended class, age, gender and ethnicity to become a signifier not necessarily of outward rebellion but of the symbolic, crazy-on-the-inside variety. That sense of internal defiance continues to permeate the entire underground and has become a secret handshake that united not only the artists who made traditional-ish punk rock over the course of 10 hours of the FYF -- the Descendents, No Age, Off! among them -- but from a wildly divergent cast of in-yer-face artists including beat makers Nosaj Thing and Dan Deacon, the deeply sensual, self-referential house music of New York's Chromatics and Glass Candy, and the catchy, arena-aspirant bands like Broken Social Scene.You saw the Future Islands shots. Here are some more of a bunch of the acts that played FYF Fest in LA on Saturday (9/3). No Dead Milkmen, Kid Dynamite or Guided By Voices, but a bunch of other stuff below...
"It's a punk rock festival. That means we're going to play ... in the wrong key," declared Guided by Voices singer Robert Pollard during his band's sturdy, hook-infused rock set featuring acrobatic kicks, monster choruses and a sexy girl delivering between-song lighted cigarettes to guitarist Mitch Mitchell.
But Pollard missed the point. As anyone who roamed downtown's Los Angeles State Historic Park on Saturday could see, punk no longer means inept, either on a musical or festival level. It means being inspired and maybe a little irrational, like festival founders Sean Carlson, Phil Hoelting and Keith Morris. It means realizing strengths and weaknesses. It means pushing at the edges like L.A.-based instrumental Nosaj Thing, who fused the deep, penetrating bass of dubstep with touches of skewed Aphex Twin breakbeat rhythms to create architecturally sophisticated sound structures as solid as they were abrasive. Or it means setting up gear in the crowd like electronic/serialist/rhythmatist Deacon to make sounds so driving and strobing that the level of crowd surfing reached Nirvana-like proportions. [LA Times]
Fleet Foxes / Zola Jesus
Pitchfork Fest day two (7/16) had a pretty great variety of acts. In addition to newer acts like No Age, Zola Jesus and Twin Shadow, day two made way for a number of more classic artists including the recently reunited Dismemberment Plan, hardcore punk 'supergroup' OFF!, and instrumental hip hop vet DJ Shadow. You might include Destroyer and The Radio Dept. in that group too, who both played day two of the fest.
Fleet Foxes, who also played Pitchfork Festival in 2008, headlined. Catch Fleet Foxes in NYC when their tour with The Walkmen hits Williamsburg Waterfront on September 24. Tickets for this great double bill are still on sale.
No Age, who in 2009 backed Bob Mould to play Husker Du songs at ATP, covered Black Flag's "Six Pack" and The Misfits' "Hybrid Moments" at Pitchfork Festival this past weekend. Original Black Flag frontman Keith Morris, who was there with his band OFF!, didn't join No Age on the covers like he did when Superchunk covered Black Flag and The Misfits at House of Vans. However, last night at Levitt Pavilion in LA, No Age and Ceremony played a FYF-presented free show with special guest No Flag, aka No Age, Keith Morris, and fellow founding Black Flag member Chuck Dukowski! Picture taken by Lance Bangs above. Video of No Flag playing "Wasted" and videos of No Age at Pitchfork Fest below...

Descendents at FFFFest (more by Tim Griffin)
Much like last year, FYF Fest 2011 is poppin' off with some incredible bands, many of whom recently reunited. This year the LA fest will host a coveted Descendents appearance, a Death From Above 1979 show, Guided By Voices, another Kid Dynamite reunion, The Dead Milkmen, Explosions in the Sky, the return of The Weakerthans and many, many notable others. Full lineup is below. The show goes down at 1st and Main in downtown Los Angeles on September 3rd. Tickets are on sale.
For Kid Dynamite, which features members of Lifetime, Paint it Black and None More Black, the reunion is their first since re-emerging for This is Hardcore last year with Ink & Dagger. The band called it quits in 2000 and reunited in 2005 at CBGB and some other times too. I hope they schedule another NYC show, but it's just LA for now.
This is Hardcore THIS YEAR features an appearance from Ressurection, which also featured Dan Yemin on guitar. Tickets for This is Hardcore 2011, taking place in Philly's Starlight Ballroom, is mostly sold-out, with tickets for the Sunday show still available.
The Descendents appearance at FYFest is one of several dates scheduled for the reunited band, NYC's Roseland, Chicago Riot Fest, and Philly's Riot Fest included. Tickets are still available for the 9/23 Roseland show.
Mister Heavenly will hit the road for a string of dates on the West Coast leading up to FYF Fest. Check out their full tour schedule below, and look for their new LP Out of Love on 8/16 via Sub Pop. Check out "Pineapple Girl" from that record above.
The Death From Above 1979 appearance is one of several slated for the band in the coming months, including a 7/22 appearance at Williamsburg Waterfront. Tickets are still available OR, you can try your hand by winning a pair at our Facebook. The full set of DFA1979 dates are below.
The Weakerthans have a few other dates slated for Europe and Canada in the coming months. Hopefully they add more US dates too. All dates for now are listed below.
A few bands on the FYFest lineup (namely, Cults, Off!, and No Age) will also appear in NYC at the House of Vans this summer, and for FREE. The FYF-presented House of Vans series of shows starts this Thursday (6/30). You just have to RSVP to get in (and maybe get there early).
All Weakerthans, DFA1979, and Mister Heavenly dates, some video, and the full FYF Fest lineup is below.

No Age @ Don Hill's
No Age paid a visit to NYC on Friday for not one, but two Skateboarding-related shows. Earlier in the evening they played on the halfpipe at KCDC Skateshop in Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Later that night, they played an Ooga Booga-presented free show at Don Hill's in Manhattan with Bubbles, Allies, No Fear and Rat King. Ooga Booga is a California surf and skate shop.
No Age went on around midnight at Don Hill's, were backed by visuals, and played for about an hour. In Leia's words, "during the show the bouncer would come into the crowd and grab people and tell them to stop dancing. After awhile he just stood in the middle of the crowd glaring at everyone if they bobbed their heads." DJ Total Freedom played after No Age for the rest of the party.
More pictures from Don Hill's and a video and picture from KCDC, below...
No Age at Death By Audio (more by Keith Marlowe)
The last time No Age was in NYC was eight weeks ago on September 18th, when the band played Music Hall of Williamsburg. Before that, the band played two shows on a Sunday on July 25th, seven weeks before that, at a Pool Party (which was moved to Brooklyn Bowl) and a later show with Universal Order of Armageddon at Death By Audio. Now the band is back for more, having scheduled two NYC shows for this Friday (11/12). First, they'll make a 7PM appearance at KCDC Skateshop followed by a late night appearance at Don Hill's with Bubbles, Allies, No Fear, and Rat King. The Don Hill's show pops off at 8PM.
The shows will kick off a new round of tour dates that will last through November and land them back on the left coast in early December. Full tour dates, video, and a show flyer are all below.

No Age kicked off the night's festivities at the Hollywood Bowl Thursday night (9/30); playing in front of a hometown crowd with the confidence and humility that has gained Dean Spunt and Randy Randall such great acclaim in both Los Angeles and worldwide. With the addition of third live member William Kai Strangeland-Menchaca their sound has been fleshed out enough to fill the entirety of the outdoor theater. Burning through both old favorites and songs from their brand new album Everything In Between, they were an energizing start to the evening.
Sonic Youth took the stage next and opened their set with the calm poise one would expect from such tried and true veterans. Despite their elder status in the rock community they still rocked with the best of them, with Steve Shelley's bombastic drumming and Kim Gordon's bass accompanying the guitar heroics of Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore. Their experience showed through most obviously during the noise interludes and outros of the songs as they meticulously built a swarm of dissonant feedback, with Gordon scraping her bass across the stage at one point, only to snap harmoniously back into unison with everyone else a moment later. Sonic Youth continued to prove that, despite their age, they are still in the prime of their live career.
Pavement opened their headlining set with crowd pleaser "Cut Your Hair" with exuberance and energy, as if they had never taken an eleven-year break. Stephen Malkmus' jangly guitar bravado and playful banter with the crowd from the show's start set the mood for what would turn out to be a wonderful set. After Watery, Domestic cut "Frontwards", they moved into what Malkmus referred to as "the California diptych" of "Gold Soundz" and "Shady Lane" (supposedly Irvine and Silverlake, respectively). This made their intention to play crowd favorites clear early. Selecting songs from the breadth of their catalog, they kept mostly to the raucous tunes, rarely breaking out the slower numbers (save for set highlights "Grounded" and "Spit on a Stranger").
The band was congenial and grateful toward the crowd at the Bowl, exactly as one would hope a group in their position to be on one of the final American dates of their reunion tour (that included five NYC shows). Malkmus seemed sincere later in the set as he delivered the chorus of "Stereo", another of the night's highlights, singing excitedly "I'm on the stereo!", almost as if he was legitimately still surprised that people care about his songs. Bob Nastanovich brought great energy to the show the whole night, getting right into the thick of the people at the front of the crowd during Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain gem "Unfair". The swagger and personability of the whole band throughout the night made for a spectacular evening worth waiting the last eleven years for - a successful victory lap for one of indie rock's greats that will hopefully be repeated soon.
Due to time constraints, Pavement didn't get to do an encore though Graeme got a peak at the written setlist which did have "Two States" and "AT&T" listed. The LA crowd still got 17 songs.
Both Sonic Youth and Pavement move on to Vegas for the weekend (where both of their sets will be streamed online from). More pictures and the full Pavement setlist from Hollywood Bowl, and a few videos, below..
Abe Vigoda @ the Whitney in 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Abe Vigoda arrive back in NYC tonight, Friday, August 20th, for a special show at Cake Shop. It's a "Nacho Party" presented by Pop Montreal and will also feature sets by fellow Californian Hawnay Troof, Hollerado and Uncle Bad Touch (members of Priestess).
Abe Vigoda will also play Brooklyn while they're here. You can catch them Saturday night, August 21st, at Death by Audio again with Canadian band Hollerado, and also with Portland's purple rhinestone eagle (who play the Charleston Friday night) and Brooklyn's passive aggressor.
From there Abe Vigoda go back home to play some shows with Cap'n Jazz and then Cold Cave leading up to FYF Fest in LA on September 4th. In October they head overseas where they then tour with No Age. All dates and Hollerado's new video for "Fake Drugs", below...
No Age @ Death By Audio last night (7/25) (more by Keith Marlowe)
No Age played two shows in NYC on Sunday. First was at Brooklyn Bowl (instead of Williamsburg Waterfront) (pics here and here), and then late night they headlined a Death By Audio show that Universal Order of Armageddon also played.
Next up, the LA indie noise punk rock band will play a string of dates this September leading up to the release of their new album on Sub Pop (btw did you notice their Sub Pop labelmate in the pit at Death By Audio last night?). Those dates include a September 18th show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. It goes on sale Friday at noon.
Other dates on No Age's tour are with Pavement, but they will not be opening one of the NYC shows (even though they will be here around the same time). All No Age dates, and a just-released (((unartig))) video of No Age playing Shangrila in 2007 (featuring some on-the-speaker guitar playing) below...

Cap'n Jazz @ Brooklyn Bowl....
Sunday was an eventful day. TheDeathSet kicked off the 'Pool Party' at Williamsburg Waterfront in the afternoon, but was quickly told to stop due to rain. The organizers got on stage and announced that the free show was moving to Brooklyn Bowl, and the race was on. Those lucky enough to get to Brooklyn Bowl quick enough were let in before the show reached capacity, but thousands of others who had planned on seeing Lightning Bolt, No Age... and the only NYC appearance of the reunited Cap'n Jazz, were out of luck.
Luckily Cap'n Jazz was also playing that night at Maxwell's in NJ, and No Age were playing Death By Audio, so a few more people got to see each of them (especially Cap'n Jazz) (though you had to decide between Cap'n Jazz and Universal Order of Armageddon).
Back to Brooklyn Bowl though...
"Cap'n Jazz was amazing, no better word for it. Tim Kinsella's stage presence was ridiculous and prickish in the best way possible. When people jumped on the stage to crowd surf, he'd push them before they were ready. He rolled on the crowd while he sang, grabbed the shoe off one guy as he floated past, held the French horn comically high above him when he played, and was just all around entertaining. Davey von Bohlen was also really into it. He thrashed on the guitar, rocked out with the drummer, and was having a blast.Hopefully Cap'n Jazz announce more dates for those who missed them.
The audience loved it too and knew every word. A high note was during "In the Clear" when Kinsella was supposed to scream the alphabet. He couldn't seem to find his microphone in time and everyone picked up the slack, "A! B! C!" Kinsella shrugged.
"Oh Messy Life" and "Little League" were other high points to the show, the audience seemed to go most crazy for Cap'n Jazz's only cover song, "Take On Me." People danced and screamed the words, the same words Kinsella read from a paper as he sang." [NY Press]
For No Age, this was the second year in a row that they played a Pool Party in Brooklyn Bowl due to rain,

Dug silk flowers. Universal Order For Armageddon killed it! Now No Age. -spidertears
A semi-secret show for No Age plus a homecoming/reunion for Universal Order of Armageddon, meant a tightly packed Death By Audio in Brooklyn last night (July 25th).
No Age played Brooklyn Bowl earlier in the day after Pool Party officials scrapped the outdoor event and moved it inside due to the coming rain-pocalypse. UOA was on a return trek to NYC after playing Whartscape in Baltimore over the weekend.
Silk Flowers opened the Death By Audio show that reports say sold out briskly (doy). From the looks of it, it was a bit of a madhouse. But don't take my word for it, ask David Cross... More pictures from the show, UOA's setlist and a video, below...

the race to Brooklyn Bowl
Chris got to Williamsburg Waterfront today just as they were making the announcement that things were moving to Brooklyn Bowl due to the rain. He, along with more people than could fit in the new venue, then raced to the new spot. He made it in, but only stayed for No Age who went on at 5:30. After that he left to make room for someone else who might want to catch Cap'N Jazz and Lightning Bolt more than him.
The rest of the show (which is still happening as this is being typed) is safe in Leia's hands (photographically speaking). Chris's pictures continue below...
"Seth" @ Union Pool - July 24, 2010 (amythistle)
TheDeathSet, No Age, Lightning Bolt and Cap'n Jazz play today's free Pool Party at the
Williamsburg Waterfront Brooklyn Bowl. Afterwards? Well, Cap'n Jazz is playing Maxwell's (yes, they are), and it looks like a band with five letters total in their name (?? ???) are headlining that Universal Order Of Armageddon show at Death By Audio. hmm...
Speaking of secret shows, Les Savy Fav guitarist Seth Jabour is getting married. To celebrate, his bandmates held him a bachelor party at Union Pool last night which was a ladies-only Les Savy Fav concert. That's a picture taken at the show above. One more, along with the invite, below...

@ a 2009 Pool Party (more by Tim Griffin)
I don't know what Veoba is either. The press release explains it though...
For the past 4 years, JELLY has hosted over 200,000 people for what has become one of the most groundbreaking FREE concert series in New York. Summer Sundays in Brooklyn have become synonymous with The Pool Parties and in the series' 5th Anniversary year, Pool Parties promises not to disappoint.They didn't announce who is playing the Brooklyn Bowl block party on August 1st. One complication might be that one of the bigger bands cancelled.
This year, The Pool Parties are again on the Williamsburg Waterfront for 7 dates from July 11th--August 29th. Due to scheduling conflicts, our August 1st date will be moved to a "Block Party" in and around Brooklyn Bowl making it 8 total "FREE Pool Party Sundays".
In celebrating our 5th Year Anniversary, JELLY also would like to give a big thanks to Senator Chuck Schumer and Phillip Goldfeder from the Senator's office for all of their support ensuring JELLY'S return to the Williamsburg Waterfront. JELLY owners Alexander Kane and Sarah Hooper state that, "It has been a long hard road this year to bring this series back to Williamsburg and it 100% could not have been done without Senator Schumer's efforts. "
The Pool Parties will be co-presented by VEOBA, an online resource for artists, managers, and record labels. Based in Chicago, but with global reach, VEOBA provides the music community with select services to progress and maintain their livelihood. VEOBA launched in May 2010 as a collective made up of music industry veterans, writers, managers, artists, and cartoon characters. From co-founder Jay Parkin, "More often than not, musicians rely on others to take their careers to the next level. We're here for those who care enough to do it themselves." Sharing Jelly's values of creativity and innovation, the people at VEOBA are thrilled to be involved in this summer's production. Parkin concludes, "For the independent and the like- minded, VEOBA facilitates the next step."
JELLY as well wants to give a shout out to all of their partners this summer from the new faces to old friends. Special thanks to AllSaints and Vans. As well as Amp Energy, vitaminwater®, SESAC, ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water, ZYNC from American Express^(SM), Spin Magazine, KEXP, and Main Drag. Along with OSA sponsors: Time Out New York, Brooklyn Brewery, and Heineken.
Now onto our official Pool Parties 5th Year Anniversary lineup! Check back soon for surprise guests we cant announce yet, the official DJ lineup for The Pool Parties 2010, and more fun things that are SURE to make the 5th Year Anniversary series one you will never forget!
The Official After-Pool Parties, presented by Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, will be held at Brooklyn Bowl following every Sunday's Pool Party!
The only difference between the leaked lineup and the official lineup is the addition of another "SECRET SPECIAL GUEST" and the listing of some curators. You can see the full list of confirmed free shows, below...
