Phosphorescent at Brooklyn Bowl in 2011 (more by Tamara Porras)
As mentioned, the Northside Festival is returning to various Brooklyn venues from June 13 - 16, and like in past years, they'll be doing two free shows in McCarren Park as part of the festival. We already mentioned that The Walkmen are playing one on June 15, and that one just got even better because Phosphorescent (who just played Crossing Brooklyn Ferry) were added! The rest of the bill includes Friend Roulette and Abadabad. The show is free, but tickets are required and still available.

by Bill Pearis
Brooklyn's Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) will release his new album Muchacho via Dead Oceans on March 19. That's the cover art above. The new record finds him dabbling in new sonic territory, adding electronics to his soulful, folky sound. There are definitely drum machines on the first track to be revealed from the album, "Song for Zula," which you can stream below.
While surely a tour is in the works no dates have been announced yet. New York, however, has a chance to see him next week. Phosphorescent will play the John Varvatos Bowery store on January 24. The event is free but you must RSVP. Gentlemen Jack whiskey drinks will be served and therefore the event is 21+.
Beach Day at Knitting Factory, June 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

The Cameo show is with Blonds, who, as mentioned, will play the Rock Shop even sooner on August 28. That show, presented by Brooklyn Brewery, is the "Brooklyn, Sweden Sendoff" with Telepathe, So-So Glos and Teen Commandments all of whom will play the Brooklyn, Sweden Festival in Stockholm and Malmö over Labor Day Weekend (8/31 - 9/1). Blonde Redhead, The Hold Steady, Cults, Crystal Stilts, Phosphorescent, Au Revoir Simone, Dum Dum Girls, DIIV, Twin Sister, Widowspeak, Maluca, Prince Rama, Caveman, and DJs Finger on the Pulse will also be there, so if you're wondering why Williamsburg seems empty that weekend, that's why.
Tickets to the send-off party at The Rock Shop are on sale now: it's $15 bucks but includes free Brooklyn Brewery beer from 7:30 - 9:30 PM.
A flyer for the Brooklyn, Sweden Sendoff party, plus Beach Day and Blonds tour dates, are below.

Tickets are still available, or if you have a Northside badge you can use that but entrance is based on capacity.
All These United States tour dates are below, along with the album stream.

Father John Misty aka J. Tillman
with Fleet Foxes on an ACL Episode (more by Tim Griffin)
Farewell Fleet Fans and Friends. Back into the gaping maw of obscurity I go. Tokyo is my last show with the Foxes. Sorry if I was distant and obtuse if we ever met. Have fun.The above message is a post that Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman posted to his tumblr last month, announcing his departure from the band that he joined in 2008. He also tweeted, "@fleetfoxes, the best and last band that would ever have me."
Both before and during his time in Fleet Foxes, he had been recording solo material as J. Tillman. Since leaving Fleet Foxes, he's announced that he has signed to Sub Pop under the name Father John Misty and will release his first album under that moniker, Fear Fun, on the label on May 1. The album was recorded with Jonathan Wilson and was produced by Phil Ek, who also produced both Fleet Foxes albums, in addition to albums by The Shins, Band of Horses, and others. He's got a few west coast dates announced, which are listed below.
Our first taste of Father John Misty was a collaboration with fellow rural folkie Phosphorescent called "I Would Love You" (via Aquarium Drunkard). Grab an MP3 of that song at the top of this post. You can read the song's lyrics on the Father John Misty tumblr. He's since revealed a song from Fear Fun called "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings," which you can download via a widget below. You can also watch the video for it, which stars Aubrey Plaza of NBC's Parks and Recreation, at Entertainment Weekly.

Arcade Fire / The Antlers
Rain showers fired up crowds for the second day of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, even as much of the excitement Saturday was for headliner Stevie Wonder, who had fans claiming spots by the main stage throughout the afternoon.Pictures from the second day of Austin City Limits 2011 are in this post. They include pics of Sunday night headliner Arcade Fire, at an Austin City Limits TV show taping which took place downtown at the new Moody Theater on Saturday.
Out-of-towners might not have understood the joyful reaction -- which included singing and dancing -- that rain got throughout Zilker Park. "I say, 'God bless the rain,' and we need it," said Austin photographer Greg Davis, who for the fifth year was selling his photos in the fest's art market. "It's bad for business but great for the community."
Some people used shelters put up for extra protection from the sun to escape the intermittent showers, while others didn't let a little water keep them from staking out spots early around the stage where Motown legend Wonder was to perform. The periphery filled so quickly that by the time R&B singer Cee Lo Green took the stage at 6 p.m., several hundred fans had planted chairs in nondesignated areas, causing security to ask them to move so the expected throng of people would have space to approach the stage.
"Our whole plan today has been to scope out a spot so that we don't have to fight the crowds," said Joelle Barnes of Austin, who along with her husband, James, were among the people asked to move their chairs. Although Barnes and her husband had enjoyed Alison Krauss and Union Station, Cee Lo and other performers they had seen on Saturday, the day was all about Wonder. "He's a legend -- you can't argue with that," James Barnes said. "This is such a rare opportunity"... [Austin360]

Matthew Houk & Kim Krans
"About three quarters the way through the night, The Taking It Easy band left the stage to Houck to perform mostly solo. Joined by Family Band's Kim Krans on the song "Endless Pt. 1" off of Aw Come Aw Wry, and then briefly by his aforementioned metal god keyboard player on an electrifying version of "Wolves" from his 2008 album Pride, Houck turned down the volume but not the energy. If anything, his charisma and charm, which allowed him to pull off a key/capo change right in the middle of "My Dove, My Lamb" and receive only a mild chuckle from the audience, managed to fill the space that had once been occupied by the screech of feedback and the pounding of drums. After a few more solo numbers, the rest of the band finally returned to stage to close out the show, ending with an absolutely devastating version of the song "Los Angeles" that sent the crowd home entertained if not slightly unsettled." [ChunkyGlasses]Phosphorescent & Family Band ended their tour together Wednesday night at Brooklyn Bowl. More pictures from that show below...

Phosphorescent @ the Parish in Austin
Phosphorescent has been on tour since before Coachella. Let's give Matt and band a proper welcome home at Brooklyn Bowl tonight (5/11). Tickets are still on sale, and if you act quick you can try and win a pair on our Facebook too.
Back on May 5th, Phosphorescent played a show at The Parish in Austin, Pictures from that show are in this post. They include an audience member who helped Matt sing "Wolves" on stage, and opener Family Band (who also open the Brooklyn show). More of those pictures, a recent La Blogoteque Take Away Show video, and more upcoming dates (Bonnaroo included), below...

"While it was kind of a running joke that the gnarled dance-punk band was one of the biggest reunions at this year's Coachella (Death From Above 2005 jokes abounded), the band reasserted what made them such a strange and compelling commodity in the first place.Death From Above 1979's performance on Sunday was the second time the reunited band graced a public stage since announcing their return. The first was a semi-surprise appearance at this year's SXSW at March that got much more attention than anyone even anticipated due to a bit of violence that made the late night news. In May the band does it again at Sasquach.
Lacerating bass, Grainger's falsetto wails and a relentless rhythmic urgency both hearkened back to the mid-'00 dance punk craze, yet reminded the audience that their palpable violence set them apart from their more trend-minded peers.
"Romantic Rights" and "Blood on Our Hands" rode slithery, distortion-tangled bass lines over the kind of four-on-the-floor that bassist Jesse F. Keeler would explore more thoroughly in his disco aegis MSTRKRFT.The audience seemed simultaneously enthralled and a bit confused."
Coachella 2011 concluded on Sunday with a big headlining set by Kanye West. I already posted some pictures from that one, but a more proper set is also in this post which also includes our full set of pictures from the California festival's final day (day one pics HERE, day two HERE).
Bon Iver's Justin Vernon who played Friday night with Gayngs, made two guest appearances on Sunday, first with the National earlier in the day and then with Kanye West during one of the most high profile sets of the weekend.
The other big set of Sunday was by the Strokes who weren't afraid to play the hits. Their full setlist is below.
PJ Harvey (who arrives in NYC this week) played her headlining set on the "Outdoor Theatre." It overlapped with both The Strokes and Kanye...
"Backed by a nimble three piece band, Harvey, with the Strokes audible from the nearby main stage during the silences between songs, delivered the most emotionally intense performance I witnessed at this year's Coachella, singing songs of violence, war, love and lust (mostly from her harrowing new Let England Shake), before a crowd of rabid supporters...."

DOWNLOAD: Middle Brother - Me Me Me (MP3)
Jonny Corndawg, Matthew Vasquez, Taylor Goldsmith
"There's a singer-songwriter intimacy in many of the songs on Middle Brother, as though band members John McCauley, Taylor Goldsmith and Matthew Vasquez were sharing secrets and anecdotes and decided to set them to music. All three men belong to bands -- Deer Tick, Dawes and Delta Spirit -- that trade on folk, blues and country traditions; even their up-tempo songs are less rave-up rockers than hand-clapping foot-stompers." [NPR]That blurb comes from a March 28th (yesterday) NPR feature on Middle Brother that you can listen to at NPR's site. On April 3rd Middle Brother kick off a west coast tour, but earlier this month they toured through NYC on their way to SXSW, and while they were here they played epic shows at both Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom with opening collaborative sets by Deer Tick, Dawes, Jonny Corndawg and Matthew Vasquez. The MHOW show ended with everyone back out on stage during the encore, along with special guest Phosphorescent for the final jam of the night.
Since then I saw Middle Brother again at SXSW, where, like in NYC, the country-stylish Jonny Corndawg (as seen in today's NY Post) almost stole the show. The Austin show I saw was the BrooklynVegan Day Party at Barbarella, but they also played an official showcase at Auditorium Shores which is streaming at NPR.
I just realized that not only haven't I posted the SXSW pictures yet, I never even post the NY ones, so here is the set from Bowery Ballroom and it continues below...
Bonnaroo (June 9-12 in Manchester Tennessee) has announced the 2011 lineup (slightly early), and like the rumored Lollapalooza lineup, Eminem is among the headliners. Bonnaroo also has Grammy winners Arcade Fire and the Black Keys, in addition to Lil Wayne, Mumford & Sons, the Strokes, The Decemberists, Florence & the Machine, Girl Talk, Beirut (haven't seen them in a while), and many more. Full list below...
Phosphorescent at RiverRocks (more by Chris LaPutt)
Starting April 9th, Phosphorescent will hit the road for a US tour in Buffalo, making some interesting stops on the West Coast before heading back east. It seems that Phosphorescent has the unique distinction of being the only act on (the now-sold-out) Coachella AND Stagecoach Unfortunately he has other shows scheduled during the Big 4 show.
After West-Coastin' through the end of April, Phosphorescent will mosey on back to home turf to play the final date on the US tour, Brooklyn Bowl on May 11th, before prepping to head across the pond for a European jaunt. Ticket info for Brooklyn Bowl is on the way.
All tour dates and some videos is below.
Coachella sold out in less than a week, but the festival that is going to occupy the same fairgrounds exactly one week later, goes on general sale Friday at 10am (presales happening now), and that is "The Big 4" which will bring together Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax ("together for the first and only time in the US") for one big Indio, California classic metal show on Saturday, April 23rd .
One week after that, Goldenvoice (also responsible for Coachella and The Big 4) will host its annual Stagecoach Festival at Empire Polo Field (same place). "California's Country Music Festival" is being headlined by people you probably don't care about, but will also include sets by names like Wanda Jackson, Loretta Lynn, the Punch Brothers, the Secret Sisters and Phosphorescent who is also playing Coachella. Tickets are on sale.
I unfortunately could not find a ticket link for Brochella. Full lineup (real poster) for Stagecoach, and a Big 4 video trailer, below...

Phosphorescent brought the full band and then some to David Letterman last night. Video of that horn-filled performance below...
Phosphorescent at Pier 54 (more by Chris La Putt)
...Phosphorescent stopped by Coco66 in Greenpoint [and]..it was a much more intimate affair than their last New York City outing at Pier 54 a few weeks ago. Being 2 band members short, Team Houck launched into an hour+ long set of improvised versions consisting of classics, covers and newer material alike. Improvised or not, the show portrayed the same artistic excellence that marks this band's every step. -[FreeWilliamsburg]Phosphoresecent's appearance at Coco66 on 8/19 was part of a benefit for 826NYC. A video from that show is below.
Phosphorescent is in Europe for most of September, but these locals will play another local show at Bowery Ballroom on December 10th. Tickets are currently on AmEx presale and go on regular sale Friday (8/27) at noon.
If you can't wait til December, Phos will also be performing on NPR's World Cafe today (8/26). Coco66 video, an official video, and all dates below...
