Pissed Jeans at House of Vans (more by Chris La Putt)
Pissed Jeans, who haven't been very busy lately due to having kids, scheduled some shows this month including one in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (1/22), joined by Protect-U and Pop.1280. The show was another one-off for the punk band, but one of a few dates for Pop.1280, who are welcoming their new LP The Horror (stream the LP in full at SPIN). Did you go last night? How was it? blogTo was at the Toronto show:
"Beyond the onstage antics, the band played an incredible set. The crowd's favourite seemed to be the official last song of the night, "False Jesii Part 2." As soon as the band started playing it the intensity in the room skyrocketed and the structural soundness of the floor was tested to the max as the crowd bounced to the high paced rhythm. As the last song came to an end, fans were left wanting for more.If you missed Pissed Jeans, here's some BIG news that should ease your mind. Pissed Jeans have been added to the now RIDICULOUS lineup of Ceremony/Rival Mob/Kim Phuc/Hoax/Gods & Queens at LPR on Feb 4th. Tickets are still available and only $5 in advance.
Pissed Jeans were happy to oblige, on one condition: "a rousing clap" was needed, at the request of Korvette. The crowd complied and the band played on. Ending their encore, the drummer, Sean McGuinness, leapt over his kit and into the crowd."
Kim Phuc will ALSO play an after-party with the new-look Night Birds & Nuclear Spring (ex-Nomos) later that night.

While I was watching a man beat another with a pizza box, Boston hardcore band Brain Killer played a pair of shows as part of a memorial in honor of Nick Poot, the first of which hit Tommy's Tavern on Jan 15th with Nomad, Earthpig, State of Decline & Longpigs (some pics are over at show booker Undead's site). The second show, where the photos in this post orginate from, took place over this weekend (Jan 22nd) at 538 Johnson with Parasytic, Perdition, and Nomos. Jason House reports:
It was really intense, especially when it came time for Brain Killer. There was PA trouble right before Parasytic was set to start, and it was switched out for one that obviously wasn't able to handle it. It did the trick, but the last 2 sets essentially sounded like they were being screamed through a CB radio. By the end, nearly everyone in the room was singing along so it didn't really much matter anyway. I never had a chance to meet Nick or see him play, but judging by energy in that room, he will be sorely missed.R.I.P. Nick. More photos from #201 at 538 Johnson are below.

"King Tuff totally rocked it at the knitting factory tonight.
Glad I didn't miss it!" - BeyondBeyondisBeyond
King Tuff (aka Kyle Thomas who also happens to be in Witch and Feathers and Happy Birthday) headlined (an actual birthday party) at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn last night (1/20) with support from Frankie Rose & The Outs and Nude Beach. That's Tuff above, and more pictures of the show are below.
Nude Beach (the NY band) will join Nomos and The Men for a FREE show at Generation Records at 2PM on Sunday (1/23). Nude Beach is replacing Pregnant on the in-store bill, who recently dropped off of the show but is still scheduled to play Cake Shop on Mar 18 with Black Wine & Big Eyes. Bone up for Cake Shop by checking out their self-titled LP, out on vinyl now, but you can preview that LP on digital form above.
Generation Records is also a bit of a homecoming show for Nomos and The Men, as both bands recently came back from a two week tour of the West Coast which saw them share dates with Mammoth Grinder, Hatred Surge, Skin Like Iron, Walls, and many others. Both bands released LPs in 2010; Nomos dropped Notes From The Acheron in September (order it) while The Men are currently on their second pressing of Immaculada after initially releasing it in May (snag one).
