Oneida @ the Yard
Oneida @ the Seaport
There have been no shortage of Onedia shows this summer. One of them took place back in July at the Yard. Another was just this past Friday at South Street Seaport. They played, strangely, after Raphael Saadiq at the latter. Their next NYC show is this Saturday in Williamsburg (Sept 6). More photos from the Yard & SSS below...

DOWNLOAD: Onedia - Preteen Weaponry (edit) (MP3)
Williamsburg's Monster Island arts center, home of Secret Project Robot, is throwing its 3rd annual Monster Island Arts and Music Festival Block Party Saturday, Sept 6 from 2pm-10pm.
The not-for-profit on the corner of Kent Ave and Metropolitan claims to be "the only block in this section of Brooklyn that has not been rezoned for high-rise condominiums."
Bands playing the free show include Oneida, Golden Triangle, Ex Models, Red Dawn II, The Trilateral Commission, K-Holes, The Gimme Five,
2 surprise bands booked by building mate and NYC phenomenon Todd P. Cassie, Katy, & Ali and Psychothriller.
Psych-rockers Oneida, recently back from a tour in support of "Preteen Weaponry" (the first part in the "Thank Your Parents" triptych the band is releasing on Jagjaguwar/Brah), and also playing the free Seaport Music show this Friday, will be recording a new single for Social Registry during the show ("Limited to 35 tickets - first come first serve").
The East Village Radio Festival at South Street Festival is the same day. Full line-up of Monster Island events, and some tour dates, below:
Earl Greyhound @ All Points West (more by Jefferson)
In additon to the previously announced record-taping shows coming up in September, Earl Greyhound are playing a free show at Southpaw in Brooklyn this Wednesday night (Aug 20, 2008). Smokewagon and Changing Holes are also on the bill.
The Ex with Gétatchèw Mèkurya (renowned Ethiopian saxophone legend), and if that weren't enough, Lincoln Center added two amazing East African/American collaborations to the bill: Either/Orchestra with Mahmoud Ahmed and Alèmayèhu Eshèté, plus Extra Golden.Also free, also thanks to WFMU: The NYC stop on Wire's October tour. September 3rd is the day to get tickets.
Aug 29th @ South Street Seaport:
"Oneida, Endless Boogie + VERY SPECIAL GUEST"
Who is the special guest? I have no idea, but if Endless Boogie can be considered a clue, there's a really good chance it will be a band on Matador Records. Speaking of which, Matador's Yo La Tengo are playing the very last McCarren Pool Party in Brooklyn on Sunday August 24th. That would be kind of cool and weird if Yo La Tengo played the Pool and the Seaport both in less than a week.
That's it for now. Take a look at the free show calendar for much, much more, but not THAT much more because unfortunately the free show season (aka Summer) is soon coming to an end. Summerstage is already done now that Sharon Jones played and actually I just realized that the Bill Withers tribute was the final 'Celebrate Brooklyn' show in Prospect Park this year too.
This has turned into THIS.........

No lack of Oneida shows lately, but there are only two that they'll be playing an entire album at.
Titus Andronicus played Bowery Ballroom last night with Los Campesinos! and they have another outdoor show happening in June.
Oneida will be performing their 2005 album "The Wedding", in its entirety, two nights in a row at The Kitchen in NYC...
Backed by a live string quintet under the direction of Brian Coughlin, along with pianist Emily Manzo, the album is revisioned within the tradition of the song cycle as an abstract narrative. Art Direction by Mighty Robot A/V Squad, longtime provider of Oneida's lightshow, contextualizes the work as a unique hybrid of multimedia concert and non-didactic rock opera.Tickets are on sale for: June 13 & June 14.
Oneida are also playing a show in Brooklyn much sooner - this Saturday actually (May 10th). It's a benefit for Eat Records at Secret Project Robot and Ex Models are also on the bill. All dates below....
Hello New York!Old time Relijun is also playing Sunday (Easter) at Knitting Factory with The Vivian Girls, Lycaon Pictus and Dokkebi Q. All tour dates and more pics Ryan took at the SXSW Panache/Lovepump showcase, below.....

DOWNLOAD: Cardboard Records Compilation (Trey Told Em mashup) (MP3)
"Old Baby" is the latest record from Company, a songwriting collective and rock band rooted in folk, punk, country, and psychedelic traditions. Brought together by a shared commitment to writing songs that don't "pussyfoot around", to borrow Dylan's phrase, Adam Davison, David Janik, Stephanie Rabins, and Christopher Teret formed Company in 2001.Oneida will help Company celebrate the release of the new album tonight (Feb 29) at Knitting Facory in NYC, and again tomorrow night in Massacusetts.
Oneida isn't releasing a new CD yet, but they - - along with Best Fwends, Matt & Kim, High Places, Parts & Labor, Japanther, These are Powers, and many others - do appear on a new Cardboard Records compilation...
On March 4th Cardboard Records will release "Love and Circuits: A Cardboard Records Compilation from Aa to Zs". This is a 2CD, 57-band scene report culling a wide variety of punk, noise, experimental, folk, and electronic music. For your convenience, the tracks are alphabetized by band name. 77.2% of these songs are exclusive to the comp. Of special note is the contribution from Trey Told 'Em (Girl Talk and Hearts of Darknesses' new remix project) -- a mashup track of all the other 56 submissions!Download the mashup above! Check out the tracklist, and more tour dates, below....
It's hard to believe that Portishead is playing two shows next week...
Portishead and Aphex Twin opted to present their shows in Centre Stage and will be doing 2 performances each so they could perform their sets with no restrictive sound issues. To make this work ATP have cut the capacity of the festival by over 600 people to allow much easier access for all fans to be able to come and see the shows of their choice.Oneida is also playing ATP, but first they'll play Europa in Brooklyn tonight (Nov 30), and Middle East in Boston on Saturday. ATP lineup & set times below....
The Portishead show will be wrist-banded so all fans are guaranteed entry. At check-in please choose your preferred show day (Friday or Saturday) The wristbands will be on a first come first served basis, however if there are special circumstances that means you are arriving late on the Friday evening or not until the Saturday morning and can only attend the Saturday show please contact ATP on firstname.lastname@example.org with "wristband" in the subject line and let them know and they can make arrangements to hold back wristbands.
The Aphex Twin shows will be on a first come first serve basis on the night - once the room is at capacity they will let people in on a one out one in basis.
