Sharon Van Etten / Patrick Stickles with Deer Tick @ Brooklyn Bowl 12/27/2014
Deer Tick just wrapped up their six-night 10th Anniversary celebration at Brooklyn Bowl that had them covering classic albums in full in addition to sets of their own material.
THE ALBUMS THEY PLAYEDI was there for the "War Elephant" night. Hearing Deer Tick perform the album that made me fall in love with them was perfection. At least two of the songs on that album they almost never play live which made it even more special.
12/26: NRBQ - Tiddlywinks / Deer Tick: War Elephant
12/27: Lou Reed - Transformer
12/28: The Beatles - Meet the Beatles
12/29: Devo - Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!
12/30: Elvis Costello - My Aim is True
12/31 fan chosen Deer Tick Set
Another highlight of night one was finding out that happy NRBQ members were in the audience to see Tiddlywinks performed live because they heard about it and bought tickets. Marshall Crenshaw, who guested on about 5 of the NRBQ songs, has since said on his WFUV show that he thinks it was special to see a young crowd experiencing NRBQ's music. Also special was Jana Hunter of Lower Dens opening the show and then returning to the stage to cover Buddy Holly hit "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" with Deer Tick and Marshall Crenshaw who played Buddy Holly in the movie "La Bamba". They played that right before Deer Tick did "War Elephant" which was first released on Jana's label FEOW! Records (the Partisan Records release was a re-release). John thanked Jana for helping put Deer Tick on the map.
Each night featured a different opener and multiple special guests. Here's the final tally:
DEER TICK @ BROOKLYN BOWL -- OPENERS & GUESTS(Did we miss anyone?)
12/26: Jana Hunter, Marshall Crenshaw, Lux Deluxe, Skye Steele
12/27: Robert Ellis, Sharon Van Etten, Patrick Stickles (Titus Andronicus), Josh Rawson (Felice Brothers)
12/28: Joe Fletcher, Tommy Stinson (The Replacements), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), James Felice (Felice Brothers)
+ James Felice, Robert Ellis, Bryan Minto, Chris Marine, Taylor Goldsmith, Tommy Stinson & Joe Fletcher on "Goodnight, Irene."
12/29: The Districts, Vanessa Carlton, Robert Ellis, Alex Collier (The Weeks)
12/30: The Weeks, Smoota, Julian Veronesi (Titus Andronicus), Spencer Swain
12/31 T. Hardy Morris & The Hardknocks, Chris Paddock (emcee), Skye Steele, Stevie Nicks, Vanessa Carlton, John's mom
On night 2 (12/27), which is pictured in this post, Deer Tick performed Lou Reed's Transformer with Sharon Van Etten singing lead on "Perfect Day". Watch the video of that below. Ian Felice did "Walk on the Wild Side" and Titus Andronicus' Patrick Stickles came out for "I'm So Free." Deer Tick guitarist Ian Patrick O'Neil sang most of the lead on the rest of Transformer's songs. The full setlist is also below.
Opening the second night was Robert Ellis, who covered Billy Joel's "Movin' Out" and also joined Deer Tick on guitar during the Transformer set. Ellis then played with the band again the next two nights.
Rolling Stone was at the Beatles night:
With frontman John McCauley serving as John Lennon and guitarist Ian O'Neil taking the McCartney parts, the usually scrappy garage band opened the evening as a harmonizing three-piece pop outfit, running through overlooked Beatles gems like "It Won't Be Long" and "Till There Was You." There were plenty of pleasant surprises along the way, as when Goldsmith came out to sing lead on "Don't Bother Me" ("He's our George tonight," said McCauley), Felice added some unexpected accordion to "Little Child" and Stinson joined the band for a ragged take on "I Wanna Be Your Man."----
Vanessa Carlton, aka Mrs. John McCauley, performed twice during the run, despite being NINE MONTHS PREGNANT. One of those times was on backup vocals on New Year's Eve when the biggest special guest of all appeared to help Deer Tick play Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon". That guest of course was Stevie Nicks, a long time mentor to Vanessa, and the person who officiated her wedding to John.
More pictures, video and the setlist from Deer Tick's 12/27 show, below...
As announced back in September, Deer Tick are celebrating their 10th anniversary six nights in a row at Brooklyn Bowl, starting tonight (12/26). During the first five nights, in addition to playing their own material, they'll be covering some of their favorite albums in full, and tickets are back on sale:
THE ALBUMS THEY'RE PLAYINGMore excitingly, at the 12/26 show they'll be performing their 2007 album War Elephant in full too! For the final (New Year's Eve) show, it will be an entirely fan-chosen setlist. The band promised "many friends, special guests, and great bands joining the party each night.", and openers and some of the guests have since been announced.

Rdio/YouTube streams of the albums they're covering, below...
NPR have posted their Top 50 Albums of 2014, and like it usually is, it's one of the more diverse year-end lists we've seen so far. There's a lot of the indie that shows up on many of these lists (The War On Drugs, St. Vincent, Spoon, Perfume Genius, Angel Olsen, etc), the hip hop (Run the Jewels, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, YG, Isaiah Rashad, etc), the big-name pop (Taylor Swift, Mary J. Blige, Miranda Lambert), the metal (Pallbearer) and plenty of others, as well as classical, jazz, world music, a Latin funk band with an album's worth of Black Sabbath covers, and still more.
Check out their full list in alphabetical order below...

St. Vincent / Jimmy Cliff / Temples @ ACL Fest, 10/10/2014
Despite the late afternoon sun shining brightly into the eyes of the spectators, the Dallas native attracted thousands to hear the guitar goddess peel off insanely good riffs in between stylized vocals and strangely robotic choreography that has become her hallmark.The second weekend of the 2014 ACL Festival kicked off on Friday (101/10) at Austin's Zilker Park, with sets from St. Vincent, Beck, Jimmy Cliff, Outkast, Temples, Belle & Sebastian, and lots more. Pictures from the day are in this post.
Towards the end of the performance as her band rocked through an instrumental portion, St. Vincent calmly climbed the stage truss support (in spiked high heels), arching her body out over the stage, throwing her head back several times before returning to the safety of the riser below her. -[Examiner]
If you're not in Zilker Park this weekend, you can stream select ACL sets live. Saturday (10/11) has Mac DeMarco, Interpol and Broken Bells streaming. You can also check out pics from Weekend 1 of ACL, and we'll have pics from the rest of Weekend 2 to come. Meanwhile, check out out more pics from ACL Weeekend 2, Day 1 below...
Jason Isbell @ Governors Ball (more by Dana (distortion Yavin)
Sturgill Simpson has not been shy when it comes to talking about Nashville not playing a part in his new-found success as a country singer, but Wednesday night Nashville recognized, as Simpson took home the award for best "Emerging Artist" at the 13th Annual Americana Music Honors & Awards (he beat Hurray For The Riff Raff and Valerie June). The ceremony took place at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, and the night's big winner was ex-Drive-By-Trucker Jason Isbell who won best Album, best Artist, and best Song (Robert Ellis and Rosanne Cash were also nominated in all three categories). Check out the full list of winners, and listen to that best song, below. Catch Isbell on tour with Damien Jurado next year.

Felice Bros at Terminal 5 in 2013 (more by Robert Altman)

You can watch the trailer video, with the album artwork and tracklist, below.
Felice Brothers have also sold out their previously announced shows at Rough Trade (4/9) and Mercury Lounge (5/8), and expanded their tour to include a much larger NYC show happening on July 9 at Webster Hall. That show, and most of their other June/July dates are with Robert Ellis. Tickets for the Webster Hall show go on sale Friday (3/28) at noon.
All dates are listed, with the album trailer, below...

"yes, this is Gruff Rhys..."
You may remember that Gruff Rhys's American Interior is coming out as an album, book, film and interactive mobile app in May. Gruff just released the title track to this multifaceted project and you can stream it below.
The film version of American Interior will make its U.S. debut at the SXSW with screenings, appropriately, during the film and music portion of the fest, and there's a panel discussion about it too if you've got a badge. SXSW screening dates and showtimes here and the film's trailer is below. Gruff will also be playing shows during SXSW too -- including the official Turnstile Showcase with Cate Le Bon and more -- , so look out for him if you're going to be in Austin that week.
Trailer for American Interior and the stream of its title track below...
Roky Erickson @ Chicago's Wicker Park Fest 2013 (more by Lindsay Best)
Pharmakon @ Saint Vitus 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
The Black Angels, Roky Erickson, The Denzels @ MHOW
Two different generations of Austin psych rock on one bill together, for what is sure to be one trippy show. This is a Converse Rubber Tracks show which meant tickets were free, but are all claimed now.
Pharmakon, Helm, Damien Dubrovnik, Three Legged Race @ Baby's All Right
This is one of the two stops on London experimental musician Helm and Copenhagen electronic duo Damien Dubrovnik's (mem of Var, Lust for Youth) US tour, which also hits Nothing Changes tomorrow. But this one's especially exciting because NYC noise artist Pharmakon headlines the show.
Vic Mensa, Nitty Scott MC, MC Rugz D Bewler, KB Yung Hustle @ SOB's
Mensa, Nitty Scott MC, MC Rugz D Bewler, KB Yung Hustle @ SOB's
Vic Mensa came up around the same time as fellow Chicago rapper Chance the Rapper (who he also collaborates with), and if you dig Chance's style you'll most likely be into Vic too. His last NYC gig was opening for Disclosure at Terminal 5, but tonight you can see him headline his own show in a much smaller room. Solid local rapper Nitty Scott MC opens.
Casket Girls, The Stargazer Lilies @ Mercury Lounge
The "Graveface Roadshow" rolls onto its second NYC show, featuring Black Moth Super Rainbow main man Ryan Graveface's other band, Casket Girls. Fronted by Elsa and Phaedra Greene, the band's sound isn't to dissimilar to BMSR.
Robert Ellis, Ian O'Neill @ Mercury Lounge
Houston-based country singer-songwriter Robert Ellis has a warm, world-weary voice that belies his young age. Tonight's show is with Deer Tick's Ian O'Neill.
Kins, Grand Resort, Libel @ Knitting Factory
While very much a band, Australia/UK act Kins seem to draw inspiration from downtempo electronics for a expansive, atmospheric sound without ever dipping into anthemic "whoa oh" territory. Their shows later this week with Courtney Barnett are sold out, but you can still get tickets to tonight's headlining gig.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.
For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Frankie Rose & Dub Pies @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
The Brooklyn Night Bazaar opened in its new permanent Greenpoint location last weekend, offering up shopping, food, fun (ping pong, blacklight mini-golf) and music, with free admission for those willing to wait in the long line to get in that stretched down Banker St. (The line moved pretty fast, though.) The new space is pretty nice, it was never too hard to maneuver around with most of the food and the stage at the far end of the large space. The stage, off to one side, is backed by a wall of projection screens which looked pretty cool I must say. There's no way to go and not smell like a deep fryer, but otherwise it's not a bad way to spend a Friday or Saturday night.
The music for last Saturday (11/2) was headlined by Frankie Rose whose short set nonetheless packed in most of the songs you'd want to hear, including her great cover of The Damned's "Street of Dreams" which I think is better than the original. The vibe of the Bazaar made for a loose fun set. I got in just in time to catch Mahogany who are currently operating as a duo. I miss the maximalist days of their two-drummer, three guitarists and more line-up, but they still sounded pretty good. Pictures from their sets, as well as openers Monogold, are in this post.
Tonight (10/8) at BK Night Bazaar it's The Low Anthem, Robert Ellis (who played last night opening for pals Deer Tick at Webster Hall), and Grandchildren. Then on Saturday (11/9) it's Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Ski Lodge and Pearl & the Beard. Psychic TV, A Place to Bury Strangers, Au Revoir Simone and more will play in the weeks ahead. Again the shows are free and open to the public.
More pics of Frankie Rose, Mahogany, Monogold and the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, below...
APTBS @ Orion Fest 2012 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
The Brooklyn Night Bazaar opens in its new permanent Greenpoint location this weekend, with free music performances from Spank Rock and Dope Body on Friday (11/1) and Frankie Rose, Mahogany, Monogold, and Heavenly Beat on Saturday. As mentioned before, it's now open every Friday and Saturday and will be year round.
Since we last posted, the Bazaar has added a few more shows, including The Low Anthem (11/8), Ski Lodge (11/9), A Place to Bury Strangers (11/29, the artisanal earplug vendor will do great business that night), and SISU (12/20).
That's in addition to such already announced performers like Kitty Pryde (11/23), Small Black (12/13) and, what will surely make for a bizarre bazaar, Psychic TV on both 12/27 and 12/28. Full schedule as it stands now is listed below...
Deer Tick at Rockville Center in June (more by Kurt Christensen)
Deer Tick, who recently kept very busy at Newport Folk Fest, have a new album due out in September, have announced that they'll support that new album with a fall tour. The fall kicks off in October and ends in NYC with a show on November 7 at Webster Hall. That show, and many others on the tour, is being opened by Robert Ellis. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today (7/31) at noon, with a general on-sale beginning Friday (8/2) at noon.
Deer Tick also just recently released a single from their new album, "The Dreams In The Ditch." You can stream that, along with the list of all tour dates, below...

Alambama Shakes @ Central Park Summerstage
Alabama Shakes, who opened for Jack White at Roseland in May and have since played Bonnaroo, headlined a "sold out" free show at Central Park Summerstage in NYC this afternoon, Sunday, June 24th. Did you make it in. If not, did you listen from outside? Here are some pictures from the show.
Already packed when opener Robert Ellis went on around 3pm, the show also included a pre-shakes set by Diamond Rugs who headlined their own show (their first-ever in NYC) at the Bell House in Brooklyn on Friday night (and who play Letterman on Monday). As you may know by now, Diamond Rugs features members of Deer Tick, Dead Confederate, and Steve Berlin from Los Lobos.

Willie Nelson & fan @ Wellmont Theater, Montclair, NJ
Willie Nelson, who recently collaborated with Snoop Dogg and got a statue of his likeness unveiled in Austin on 4/20, came to NJ last week for two shows at the Wellmont Theater with fellow Texas singer-songwriter Robert Ellis. We have pictures from one of those shows, and there are more of them, along with video of a performance Willie did at SiriusXM while he was here, below...
Kenny Rogers & Lionel Richie @ SXSW 2012 (more by Ryan Barkan)
"The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has had some surprises artists in the past. There was some surprise when country act Dierks Bentley made the cut and maybe a little surprise when rap star Emenim was booked. But the 2012 addition of country icon Kenny Rogers may be the most surprising addition to the line-up yet.I hope he does a duet with Danzig. Meanwhile watch him duet with Lionel below...
Rogers' appearance was announced on April 26. The complete Bonnaroo schedule is expected to be announced soon. The festival will be held June 7-10 in Manchester, Tenn." [Knoxville.com]
Amadou & Mariam
As you may remember from the past couple of years, "Summerstage" now encompasses more than just Central Park, but Central Park Summerstage will still always be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the series. Here's the 2012 schedule. Check it out below...

Corndawg & Ellis @ Mercury Lounge
Of all the unique characters at the South by Southwest Music Conference last week, few stood out like Jonny Corndawg.And you should hear its horn! (it and its musical horn drove by me at least once at SXSW this year.)
A twangy song picker from rural Virginia -- "I never really quite fit in there, which explains a lot," he says -- the real-life Jonny Fritz made a striking figure physically in Austin, with his rail-thin frame under a wide-brimmed cowboy hat. He was conspicuous musically, too, with a traditional yet rowdy, trucker-brand country sound and a status as one of Rolling Stone's 25 artists to watch at SXSW 2012. Part of the buzz is built on an upcoming album he just made at Jackson Browne's studio, backed up by his pals in the L.A. band Dawes.
Maybe the thing that made the Corndawg stand out the most was the tour vehicle parked outside his gigs. He drives a maroon Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van with "Corndawg.com" emblazoned across the back.
"I've been saving up for that thing for about three years," beamed the broad-smiling countryman. [StarTribune]
As promised, the Jonny Corndawg / Robert Ellis / Shoves & Rope train, or should I say Sprinter, pulled into NYC for a show at Mercury Lounge last night (4/2). Here are some pictures. More below...
