Mission of Burma at Bowery Ballroom - 1/18/13
Mission of Burma were just over in Europe for a tour and upon returning home they stopped in NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on Friday (1/18) before playing a hometown show in Massachusetts on Saturday. They played a bunch of material off 2012's Unsound but also reached back to their Vs./Signals, Calls, and Marches period for tracks like "Dead Pool," "Academy Fight Song," and "Nu Disco," and they worked in a cover of The Stooges' "1970" before the encore.
The show was opened by Exclamation Pony, the new-ish project of Ryan Jarman (The Cribs) and Jen Turner (Here We Go Magic). More pictures of the show and both bands' setlists are below. You can also listen to audio recordings of MOB playing "1970" and "Good, Not Great" at Bowery Ballroom below, and download the entire show at NYC Taper.
Cribs frontman Ryan Jarman surprised NYC with his first-ever solo show back in August at Cameo Gallery, and it looks like it has become a thing. At that show he was joined by multiple guests (Jen Turner formerly of Here We Go Magic, Jeffrey Lewis, Devin, and Penn Badgely from Gossip Girl), and then in September he opened for The Vaccines at Bowery Ballroom with a band billed as Ryan Jarman's Exclamation Pony. He's since said, "We don't officially have a name yet. We had one for that show. When it's official, you'll all know." You can watch a video of the band from that show below. Like at that first solo show, Jen Turner was again involved and has since been confirmed as an official member of the band. NME reports:
Jarman has previously told NME of the project: "The whole point of what we're trying to do is be very liberated, to be able to do what we want and live how we want - we live at the end of the day, we find we write better at the night, late at night or seven in the morning. That really adds a whole different feel to it. It suits both our characters better. We both live at the other end of the day anyway."Don't worry, The Cribs have not broken up and will tour the UK and Europe beginning October 19. Before that, however, Ryan will play another show at Cameo Gallery on Thursday (10/11) with Mon Khmer and Bennio Qwerty (members of North Highlands, Wise Blood, and Forest Fire). Regarding his set up for this show, Ryan tweeted, "Will it be the new band or solo?? Not sure, come!" Tickets are on sale now.
The duo are already believed to have completed an album after an intensive month of nocturnal sessions. The "experimental" record has seen the band track a brass section, and Jarman added: "A couple of the songs are more experimental. Jen's quite an experimental guitar player, but it's not even all guitar-led stuff."
The video from the Bowery Ballroom show and a list of all Cribs dates are below.

Ryan with The Cribs at Santos in June (more by David Andrako)
The Cribs have been having a pretty great year touring behind In the Belly of the Brazen Bull, their best album in a while and one of their strongest in general. The UK band has already come to the US for two tours this year, hitting NYC for shows at MHOW in April and Santos in June. Their only remaining tour dates for the summer are over in Europe, but guitarist/vocalist Ryan Jarman will be in NYC this weekend for what will be his first ever solo show at Cameo Gallery on August 4 with "special guests." No word on who those guests are at the moment, any guesses? He tweeted that he'll be playing new songs and old at the show. Tickets are on sale now.
A list of all upcoming Cribs dates and a video from their new album are below.
