"Saw We Were Promised Jetpacks tonight at Rockefeller Center for Fashions Night Out! They were amazing!" - Amy DiReda

We Were Promised Jetpacks at Rockefeller Center - 9/6/12
We Were Promised Jetpacks

We Were Promised Jetpacks brought their tour to NYC for a free outdoor Fashion's NIght Out (9/6) show at Rockefeller Center with The Lonely Forest. Ken Grand-Pierre wrote on his tumblr, "We Were Promised Jetpacks proved that you could be just as rowdy in a fancy plaza as you could be in a basement esque venue dripping with sweat. It was brilliant seeing the Fashion Night Out crowd go from confused to just going with it, and seeing their fans jumping up and down during the Jetpacks set was awesome."

WWPJ continue their tour at Amityville's Ollie's Point tonight (9/10) and come to Brooklyn on Tuesday (9/11) at The Bell House. Advance tickets for the Bell House show are still available.

More pictures from the FNO show are below.

Neil Diamond at Acheron, er, MSG (more by Eric Townsend)
Neil Diamond

True story. I was thumbing through a distro at a recent crust/hardcore show and somewhere in between a copy of an Assault 7" on HG Fact and a Grudges tape, I encountered a copy of The Jazz Singer. I almost bought it out of principle.

I'm guessing that appearance of Neil Diamond's soundtrack is an anomoly, but maybe he'll encounter a whole new breed of fan when he hits the road for a string of dates this summer. The dates include a stop at Jones Beach Theater on 6/8. Tickets are currently on Livenation presale, and go on regular sale at noon on 12/5. The full list of show is below, none of which probably feature an opening set from Amebix.

Neil recently made two special holiday appearances in NYC. He was in the Thanksgiving Day Parade and at the lighting of the Rockefeller Center christmas tree. Videos of both are also below...

White Rabbits @ Escape to NY Fest (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
White Rabbits

Whoever books the now-annual Fashion's Night Out show at Rockefeller Center must really like Bear Hands. Like last year, Bear Hands will play the free 6-11pm gig on Thursday (9/8). This year they'll be opening for White Rabbits and share a bill with Lissy Trullie and DJ Keiichiro. Flyer below.

For White Rabbits it's one of only two upcoming shows they have scheduled, the other being Chicago's Cultivate Festival.

Bear Hands head out on tour with We Were Promised Jetpacks and Royal Bangs in October.

Bear Hands @ Rockefeller Center - 9/10/2010
Bear Hands

Bear Hands are opening for Jamie Lidell at Webster Hall on Saturday night (9/18). If you don't already have a ticket, here's a little more incentive:

"As an additional bonus to all of his amazing and supportive fans, Jamie is offering everybody who has pre-ordered a ticket to any show on his fall world wide tour a special collection of remixes done by friends like Tiga, Micachu and Tuneyards, as well as from band mates Guillermo Brown and Andre Vida. This deal applies to all standard headlining shows September 6-November 20. Local promoters will provide all purchasers with a download link on the day of concert, and all hard ticket purchasers will receive a link from the box office on the show day by presenting their ticket. "
All Jamie Lidell tour dates are below.

Savoir Adore, Brahms (who have some CMJ shows comin up), and Bear Hands played sets outdoors at Rockefeller Center as part of Fashion's Night Out last week. Lionel missed Savoir Adore, but shot the other two bands. Those pictures and all dates continue below...
