Porches at Baby's All Right in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)
NYC's Frankie Cosmos has been playing a lot lately and last night (11/5) played what she's saying is her last hometown show for a couple months at the Little Big League record release at Shea Stadium. Her Double Double Whammy labelmates LVL UP and FC keyboardist Gabby Smith's band Eskimeaux opened the show. Anyone catch that? You can check out a short video featuring the choreographed dance moves of the Frankie Cosmos band, below.
Related band Porches recently scheduled their own hometown show happening December 12 at Palisades, also with LVL UP, as well as What Moon Things and Cantina. Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's their only hometown date at the moment.
Meanwhile, LVL UP also play Little Big League's Philly release show this Friday (LBL's last show before hiatus) and then they hook up with Saintseneca for a few dates on their tour including the NYC show happening Saturday (11/8) at Glasslands. NY indie rockers Palm are on that bill too, and tickets are still available.

Portland youngsters Hausu (whose name might be taken from one of the most awesome cult-horror films of all time) make a manic-depressive brand of indie rock with emotions at frayed nerves, and overdriven minor chord rock-outs melding with mopey adenoidal vocals. Have you ever heard Dinosaur Jr.'s cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven"? They're kind of like that. The band's debut album, Total, is out June 25 and you can download a couple tracks from it above or stream them below.
The band just started a major North American tour, and will be in NYC for two shows: Cake Shop on June 19 with Palm and Gray Nurse; and Death by Audio on June 20 with Cereal Banter and Sea Cliff, Long Island's great Turnip King. All tour dates are listed below.
