Abby: They were so much fun. We had been looking forward to them for a long time.In that same interview, Potty Mouth mentioned that they're planning to tour this June, and though that tour hasn't been announced in full yet, we know that it includes day 1 of Ladyfest Philly, which goes down from June 7 - 9. And before that, they'll return to NYC for a show at Cake Shop on June 5 with Pretty Greens. Even sooner, they'll open for Andrew WK in Hartford, CT this Friday (4/19) at Arch Street Tavern (tickets).
Ally: They were both so different. The Indie Pop Prom was an insanely packed party at 285 Kent, so many fucking people, everyone was drunk, and then the next show at the New Museum was a very nice space with older people who might not necessarily come to our shows--a museum-y type of vibe. But it was cool because they were really different, but they were both in New York.
Potty Mouth are currently working on their debut full length. Not much info has been revealed about that, but the album is set to include their killer single, "Damage." Check out the video for that song, a full set video of their recent Cambridge Elks Lodge show, and all currently scheduled dates listed below...
Screaming Females at 92YTribeca in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Ladyfest, which has taken place in various cities over the past few years, is returning to Philly for the first time since 2003 from June 7 - 9 at the Rotunda and other locations in West Philadelphia. The festival's mission statement reads:
Ladyfest Philadelphia is a grassroots event dedicated to the artistic, organizational, and political work of women, trans, genderqueer, intersex, and queer people, and their allies. Ladyfest combats substantive, cultural, and structural inequalities by building upon the existing Philadelphia community of artists, musicians, and activists. It aims to foster a more inclusive and safe environment through performances, workshops, panels, opportunities for collaboration, and more.This year's lineup includes sets from Screaming Females (who play Maxwell's soon), Potty Mouth, US Girls, Aye Nako (who play with Speedy Ortiz soon), Priests, Black Wine (who play Death by Audio soon), Trophy Wife, Kate Ferencz, Mindtroll, Whore Paint, Shady Hawkins, Parasol, Void Vision, and others. Ticket info is TBA but all proceeds will go to Women in Transition and SAFE Home

TPOBPAH @ Indie Pop Prom @ 285 Kent
My prom didn't have a band, just a DJ who was our electrical engineering teacher, Mr. Sark. (His DJ name was Sark After Dark.) But it was always a fantasy to have a cool band play it. (I did once attend a wedding with a Smiths cover band.) And while it wasn't an actual prom, some people's fantasies probably came true Thursday night with the Indie Pop Prom at 285 Kent where The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Swearin', Waxahatchee, Potty Mouth, and Weed Hounds dressed up fancy, rocked out and then maybe took a limo through Times Square while dancing through the car's sunroof. The show doubled as Maria Sherman's Birthday Bash (happy birthday Maria!), and Frankie Rose and Shirley Braha (Weird Vibes) were the DJs.
Like my senior prom, I didn't actually go to Indie Prom either, but maybe you did? It seemed like a good time from what I gathered on Twitter and Instagram. Did they have a photo area on the way in? Anyone spike the punch?
We only have pictures from TPOBPAH's headlining set, unfortunately, but you can check out more of them below...

Northampton rockers Potty Mouth formed back in 2011 and they've quickly become one of the most promising new bands in their local scene. They first caught our ears with the Sun Damage EP, which came out in July, 2012. The EP has its roots in '90s alternative and indie, and like the bands that inspire Potty Mouth, they aren't afraid to actually rock. They just recently followed that EP with a new single, "Damage," which you can watch the video for below. "Damage" picks up where the EP leaves off, but with thicker production and in terms of all around songwriting, it might be their best track to date.
Potty Mouth have a few NYC shows coming over the next month or so. They'll play XPO 929 on February 15 with In School, Kicking Spit, and Spirit of Danger (more info here).
They're also part of the stacked Indie Pop Prom on February 28 at 285 Kent with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Swearin' Waxahatchee, and Weed Hounds. Tickets are $10 or $8 if you come dressed in prom attire, and are on sale now. Their only other announced date that we're aware of is a hometown show with Hilly Eye, Slutever, and Tomboy.
The band will then play the next night (March 1) at the New Museum in conjunction with their new exhibit "NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star."

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart at Summerstage in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
On February 28 at 285 Kent, the Brooklyn venue will be hosting Indie Pop Prom, a show with a totally killer lineup headlined by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and also featuring sets by Swearin', Waxahatchee, Weed Hounds, and Potty Mouth. There will be DJ sets by Frankie Rose and Shirley Braha (Weird Vibes) and the show was produced by Maria Sherman. Tickets are $10 or $8 if you come dressed in prom attire, and are on sale now.
In addition to looking like a totally fun night, and the fact that seeing TPOBPAH at 285 Kent is probably crazy with any support lineup, a few other things are notable about this show. You may know that Swearin' singer Allison Crutchfield and Waxahatchee (who also plays the Don Giovanni showcase) singer Katie Crutchfield are twin sisters and used to be in PS Eliot together, and it's the first show in about two years for Weed Hounds (who have played NYC a bunch in the past). And if you're going to the show, be sure to get there early to check out Potty Mouth.

Hilly Eye at Cake Shop in June (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Brooklyn's Hilly Eye have a few shows coming up, including a couple this week during and around CMJ. As mentioned, they play the Life or Death showcase at 92YTribeca on Saturday (10/20) with DIIV, Maria Minerva, Mac DeMarco, Twerps, Starred, Kilo Kish, Slug Guts, Jozef Van Wissem, Sky Ferreira, and Dogbite. After that, they'll play an unofficial post-CMJ day party at 285 Kent on Sunday (10/21) with Blanche Blanche Blanche (who played Glasslands last month with Chris Cohen), Ireland bands Squarehead and So Cow, plus local bands Heaven's Gate, Ava Luna, and Butter the Children, and Massachusetts' Potty Mouth. The show runs from noon to 6 PM and there will be DJ sets by Grand Resort, Noah & Emily, and The Pelly Twins. The show is free to the public.
About a month later, Hilly Eye will play another local show at Saint Vitus on November 30 with their Don Giovanni labelmate Waxahatchee (aka Katie Crutchfield formerly of PS Eliot) and Corita. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Some song streams and videos are below.
