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...

No Age and Titus Andronicus are playing a free show at Santos Party House in NYC on November 9th. To get in, you need to "buy" tickets HERE at which point "You will receive a confirmation email that your name (plus one) will be on the guest list", and "PLEASE NOTE: Admittance to the show is subject to capacity."
The Santos show is one day before No Age plays Market Hotel in Brooklyn. Titus Andronicus played Market Hotel on Saturday October 18th. That's where the pictures in this post are from. More of them below....

Dave Johansen, Sylvain Sylvain and the sleazy glam of proto-punk legends The New York Dolls will grace the stages of Irving Plaza once again, right after Christmas, on December 27th. Last year it was the 28th & 29th and the shows were taped and released as "New York Dolls: Live at the Fillmore East" - sort of a lie, sort of not.
Tickets for the 2008 show go on sale October 11th 10AM and the Irving/Fillmore show is one of two December US dates the band is playing. The other is in LA seven days earlier. Their only other US date is also in California and scheduled one day after they visit the west coast to tape an episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Hopefully they're not planning on wearing an Obama t-shirt while they're on TV. All NYD dates below...
FUCKED UP played here last night:
Yeasayer & No Age play on a car-sponsored NYC roof tonight (9/13).
Lightning Bolt, Growing, Krallice + "HUGE secret guests" are playing a Todd P show in Brooklyn today. More details below...
For 10 days the rooftop, located on 10th Avenue and 36th street, will be a perfect end of summer hang-out. High above the Hudson River, the MINI Rooftop NYC will feature a daytime wellness area and an open creative space. The daily events include a "Morning Sanctuary" (Yoga and Pilates in the open), "Studio Sessions" for talks and a nightly "Lounge and Celebration" Party. The not to be missed opening and closing parties are in collaboration with Dazed and Confused and V magazines. The location is built by Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner aka HWKN, an architecture firm focusing on the creation of innovative and responsible manmade environments. Apart from the Rooftop itself, The MINI Space website will be the other spot to see what's going on up there. Videos and report backs will be regularly uploaded. It will also be the way to sign up for special events and parties. If you want to be a part of this event, make sure you sign up to stay on top of what's going down. Or up!selected events (that may be impossible to get into)

No Age fan Colin Greenwood @ APW 2008 (oetim)
Hello! To celebrate the end of a brilliant tour, we're going to webcast the last show here in America. We'll be playing live in Santa Barbara, at the Bowl. It's one of our favourite places to play; I think we've ended tours there before, once even playing a cover of ' cinnamon girl '. It's not too big, in fact it's very intimate, a small arena with a dirt floor, set in pretty countryside. It should be a special night, for lots of reasons, and we're going to try and share as much of it as we can on the webcast. Nigel, our producer, will be helping out getting it to you, so if it goes wrong....It's live!At least one of the Greenwoods also likes Grizzly Bear.
Thank you so much to everyone who's come and seen us this year; it has truly been the most special and exciting tour for all of us.
Tom likes Modeselektor.

Mary Weiss & the Shangri-Las (1960's)
Mary Weiss & the Yo La-Tengos (2000's)
River to River wants you to know:
The Seaport Music show featuring Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las with Nouvellas and The Lost Crusaders tomorrow, July 18, will start a touch earlier (6:30pm) than originally planned to make sure that we can fit all this musical goodness in. Thanks for understanding!That show is today and is free. Last week's free show at the Seaport featured Abe Vigoda, Telepathe and finally No Age. Finally the No Age pics, below...
"Mary was fifteen years old when she and her sister Elizabeth (Betty) began singing with identical twins Margie and Mary Ann Ganser in their neighborhood of Queens, NY. They soon shot into the charts with massive hits including Remember (Walking In The Sand), Leader Of The Pack, and Give Him A Great Big Kiss. Mary put out a new album recently and has been tearing it up ever since."

TRUE STORY: A middle-aged businessman walked up to us during Telepathe's set at the tourist-and-after-work-people-mixed-with-Todd-P-like-show at the South Street Seaport on Friday (July 11, 2008). He asked, "Is it just my age, or does this band SUUUUUUUCK?" We told him that, for the most part anyway, it wasn't just his age. I'm not sure if he stuck around long enough to catch (speaking of age) No Age. Telepathe might have some good songs, but they don't do them any justice live. More pictures from their set below...

I'm assuming Girl Talk will announce a NYC date after All Points West happens. Will it be October 8th to kick off the big tour he just announced or will it be when he gets back in the middle of November after playing Massachusets? The new record is out now. All dates below.

Titus Andronicus @ Market Hotel (more by Leia Jospe)
Ponytail @ Knitting Factory (more by Ryan Muir)
Abe Vigoda AND Ponytail are playing with Titus Andronicus at that previously announced July 13th show at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Tickets are still on sale. But that's just one of many shows all three of these bands have coming up.
Ponytail are also playing the free After the Jump show happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg this Saturday afternoon (June 21st), but not before playing a "Less Artists More Condos" party tonight (Friday June 20). And while they're here from Baltimore, why not fit in as many shows as possible. Ponytail are also playing a second show on Saturday at Silent Barn:
==== SATURDAY 6/21 --EARLY-7PM!-- @ SILENT BARN ====Deer Tick is also playing that Rooftop Films show in Manhattan tonight (Friday), and will be back to play Southpaw on June 30th.
:::: DEER TICK
:::::: White Hinterland
:::::::: Sal Feathers
Titus Andronicus are also playing After The Jump on Saturday, but they're playing the part of the festival that costs $10 and happens later inside Music Hall of Williamsburg. Health are playing that show too.
Myopenbar Presents:Then Ponytail is playng the Yard AGAIN eight days later - at the huge, crazy, Todd P show that Titus Andronicus and Abe Vigoda are also playing. This outdoor show is one day before the show all three of them play Mercury Lounge (see above), and it's one day after Abe Vigoda plays the Seaport with No Age (who may or may not be the special guest at any one of these other events).
July 4th, 1pm - 9pm
Special Guest: 80's Hardcore (Gavin McInness and Terry Richardson) and
DJ Dirty Fingers
complimentary PBR and Southern Comfort
free treats from the Ice Cream Man
The Yard, Gowanus, Brooklyn
THEN, Ponytail plays The Yard AGAIN 10 days after their last Yard show - this time as part of a tour with Joan of Arc which also includes a show at Knitting Factory one day later (for those counting, that makes 8 upcoming Ponytail shows in NYC - 3 of which are at the Yard). Make that nine: tickets are already on sale for an August 23rd show at Knitting Factory with Don Caballero.
We're not finished. Titus Andronicus are also playing Knitting Factory on June 27th, and a free show with Obits at the East River Amphitheater the next day, AND another show at 123 House in Brooklyn later that night, AND at Maxwell's with The Dirtbombs on July 11th (two days before they play that Mercury Lounge show that started this post) (and one day before that big Todd P show at the Yard). All tour dates for everyone below....

details on Simian Mobile Disco's broken gear at the end of the post....
The Sonics rolled back the years during their highly anticipated comeback set at Primvera Sound, as old met new at the eclectic festival. The punk pioneers played a hit heavy set on day two of the festival (Friday), wowing the Barcelona audience with classics including 'Strychnine' and 'The Witch'.The 2008 Primavera Sound Festival happened in Barcelona this past weekend. I just posted a bit about Portishead, and some Atlas Sound and El Guincho too. The rest of what we've got is below....
Playing a rare festival show as part of their comeback tour, the Seattle band headed up a line up packed with returning legends.
Earlier on, the Bob Mould Band raced through favourites from the singer's former bands, Sugar and Husker Du, including 'Hoover Dam' and 'Hardly Getting Over It'.
Post punk trailblazers Devo received one of the best receptions of the festival so far, with a set as tight as their trademark yellow jumpsuits - which were disgarded towards the end of the show.
Spanish favourites Sebadoh made their return to the Barcelona festival to perform their debut album 'The Freed Man'.
And Portishead played their second set of the festival, following on from Thursday's showstopper, this time in the indoors Auditori. [Virtual Festivals][

"Even on a day when Nine Inch Nails have suddenly dropped a late Easter present of a surprise free album, No Age have completely dominated internet music-chatter." [Status Ain't Hood]MTV News recently did a feature on lo fi music. Bands they highlighted include Jay Reatard, Times New Viking, Tyvek, Psychedelic Horseshit, and of course No Age. Download a related, free mixtape HERE or just listen to the muxtape. Watch the MTV News video below.
Lots of other people have recorded and released No Age video too. You can watch No Age play in Other Music, watch them play ping pong with Vice, watch them play in Juan's Basement for Pitchfork TV, watch them play in that vegan food store, and watch them in their practice space. They also played in Amoeba Records and those videos are below (along with the MTV one).....

Fuck Buttons @ Mercury Lounge - May 5, 2008 (self-titled mag)
Elvis Costello's new album, Momofuku is at the top of my shopping list this week. Named after the inventor of the cup noodle, Momofuku Ando, the album is the strongest effort from one of my favorite singer-songwriters in years.
Even though the mainstream media is fawning over new albums by Clay Aiken and Neil Diamond (which is streaming at Spinner) this week, there are plenty of other worthwhile releases. From what I have already heard I can strongly recommend Animal Collective's Water Curses EP, The Long Blondes' Couples, Matmos' Supreme Balloon, The Morning Benders' Talking Through Tin Cans, Pattern Is Movement's All Together, and ((Sounder))'s Good Things Come and Go Like Bad Things.
What are you picking up this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
