JKS @ Bowery Ballroom - 3/15/2012
John K. Samson of the Weakerthans (ex-Propagandhi) brought his tour in support of a new solo album to the NYC-area for two shows last week. One was at Maxwell's, the other at Bowery Ballroom. Pictures from the Manhattan show are in this post. Shotgun Jimmie opened.
John may be solo, but he played with a full band and performed material from throughout his career. There were Weakerthans songs, many which were recently performed in the same venue over the course of four nights, and even two Propagandhi cuts during the first of two encores. The full setlist, and more pictures, below...

Black Army Jacket Demo Tape cover
Black Army Jacket was an American grindcore / power violence band... Their ex-members can now be found in bands like Hope Collapse, Municipal Waste, Matt Pond PA, Burnt By The Sun and Birds of Prey.We are proud to announce that NYC powerviolence/grind greats Black Army Jacket will return to play a reunion show at Cake Shop on September 4th! Support is still TBD. Tickets are on sale.
The band was started by Andrew Orlando (ex-guitarist of Milhouse and owner of Reservoir Records) and Carlos Ramirez... both fans of bands like Terrorizer, Assück and Napalm Death and wanted to create a band in those styles. ...Queens, NY-based Chainsaw Safety Records would go on to release the band's The Path of Two Swords As One 7" and the band started to tour regionally shortly after... [Soon after] Dave Witte joined the band on drums. Now a four piece, they toured with California's Benumb and Noothgrush.
In 1998, BAJ... wrote throughout the year and entered the studio with Dean Rispler (Killing Time, 25 Ta Life) in the producer chair. The resulting album, 222, saw the musicians incorporating hints of death and black metal along with some more traditional elements of hardcore to their sound. They toured extensively to support their debut.
... Rob Lawi and the band parted ways shortly afterwards. Bassist Carlos Ramirez then became their vocalist and New Jersey native Tom Hayden joined in to fill the bass slot. Another native Jersey musician, John Adubato, was also asked to join to make Black Army Jacket a two guitar unit.
They came home from tour in mid 1999 and began to write newer, more technical material... [but] after a tough show in Worcester, MA the band decided to break up. Adubato and Witte then formed Burnt by the Sun, whilst Ramirez started melodic rockers Lakota a few years later. Andrew Orlando went on to join Anodyne and then Disnihil in the early 2000s. - [Wiki]
The show is one of two lined up for the great Black Army Jacket with the second being Best Friends Day in Richmond, VA on Aug 19 - 22:

Dan Yemin of Paint It Black...
Propagandhi and Paint It Black played NYC's Highline Ballroom on March 12th and Music Hall of Williamsburg March 13th. The pictures below are from Highline. Here's a review from the Brooklyn show...
A mixed but sociable crowd at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Punks in their 30s shouted along from staid positions around the venue while others slam-danced in a frenzy (we're talking Prop's set here, of course).After this weekend's Canadian gigs, Propagandhi spend the second half of April in Europe, continuing on their Supporting Caste tour. More pictures from Highline Ballroom below...
I've seen Paint It Black in a few places as big as this, but the MHOW is still pretty big for them. Thankfully, there was no barricade....Per the usual, the band's set was a pleasant mix of all three full-lengths, though two new jams were included: the short, sharp burst of "Cipher" and one other mind-bogglingly long composition. It spans four to five minutes and, when released on the band's upcoming Bridge Nine EP, should be their longest song yet recorded. Yeems said it regarded bicyclists and the risks they run using such a transportive mode, as well as the horrible tragedies that tend to ensue for pedallers. It's got this one refrain that just pushes the song to epic proportions, but it sounds great and the band seem to be incorporating ever-newer textures... ....Fun times.- [full review @ PunkNews]

Propagandhi have scheduled some east coast dates in support of their upcoming album Supporting Caste due on March 10th via their own Illegal Combatant Records. Dan Yemin's Paint it Black will be joining them on all dates which include a pair of NYC shows, their first since 2001 when they played the now-defunct Wetlands with Avail! They are March 12th at Highline Ballroom (with TBA) and March 13th at Music Hall of Williamsburg (with Bridge & Tunnel). Ticket info TBA soon.
Bridge & Tunnel, who was recently named #12 in Punknews's top 20 of 2008 (Paint It Black was named #3), have a few local dates in the coming days as well... Jan 25th at Tommy's Tavern with The Riot Before and Jan 28th at Generation Records with Cheeky. The Generation Records show in particular is highly recommended, because the cost of the show is a can of food! Good for the community, good for rockin'... sounds like a win-win.
