Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside
Bumbershoot

Bumbershoot is underway. Sets on the first day of the 2013 edition of the Seattle music festival included !!!, Kendrick Lamar, Crystal Castles, Sallie Ford & The Outside Sound, Charles Bradley, Washed Out, Gary Numan and more. Some of those artists also stopped by the Toyota Soundwave tent where our hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones are holding things down as the hosts of the early afternoon BrooklynVegan presentation each day.

Gary Numan, who is touring in support of a new album, chatted with Dave and Billy about living in LA now, not liking Halloween, his kids, his appearance on Mighty Boosh and more before also DJing for a bit during the Purevolume-curated portion of the day.
Sallie Ford and her band The Outside Sound stopped by to rock out for a few songs in our intimate setting to lucky fans. Comedian Todd Barry, who is also touring and performing multiple times at the Seattle fest, chatted with Dave and Billy for a bit even if he wasn't 100% sure why he agreed to do it. And we closed our portion of Saturday down with a special interview with Washed Out's Ernest Greene who also came back to the tent to DJ later in the day. When no guests were on stage, Ernest told us about his new record, touring, going from playing bedrooms to playing large festivals, his wife who is also is in his band on tour with him, how when he opened for the Shins in Portland people didn't know him until he played the Portlandia theme song, and how both Big Boi and Elton John recorded in the same studio with him and his hope that maybe he can collaborate with both one day. Dave Hill, a musician himself (who has a new album coming out Tuesday!), took acoustic requests on guitar. Pictures from the whole Soundwave day are in this post.

Today (Sunday), we're doing a special three hour segment on the Soundwave stage in honor of Barsuk Records' 15th anniversary. Check out our full schedule HERE, and more pictures below...

Generationals / Waxahatchee
Generationals
Waxahatchee

The free River Rocks series on Hudson River Park's Pier 84 kicked off last night (7/11) with a headlining set from indie pop band Generationals, direct support from Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, and opening set from (probably the currently buzziest band on the lineup) Waxahatchee. Waxahatchee played with a new bassist (aka the guy from Radiator Hospital was not there to sing harmonies on "Peace and Quiet"). You can check out a set of pictures from the whole show in this post.

The River Rocks series continues later this month on July 25 with Foxygen, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, and The Aves; and August 8 with Titus Andronicus, Ducktails, and Juan Wauters (of The Beets).

River Rocks

We reported some Seaport Music Festival news earlier and now the free, annual River Rocks series (for the second year on Pier 84) has announced it's 2013 line-up. The first happens on July 11 with Generationals and Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside. Then the second happens on July 25 with Foxygen (who will hopefully actually play this time) and Thao & the Get Down Stay Down (who just toured with Sallie Ford) and Waxahatchee. And finally, on August 8 it's Titus Andronicus and Ducktails. That explains the absence of a NYC date on Titus' upcoming tour. All River Rocks shows are free and all-ages. Doors open at 6 PM.

Generationals just played Bowery Ballroom last night (4/22) and are sticking around for another NYC show TONIGHT (4/23) at The Rock Shop with Future of What. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.

Waxahatchee open for The Babies this Saturday (4/27) at Glasslands (sold-out).

Titus Andronicus just released a Record Store Day 12", which included "Still Lie with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter" from last year's Local Business and two previously unreleased tracks, "(I've Got A) Date Tonight" and "The Dog," the latter of which is sung by drummer Eric Harm, rather than frontman Patrick Stickles. Updated Titus dates are listed, along with a stream of "The Dog," below...

I can't wait to share new songs with you and relive the old ones.

You: can you play that song you wrote?!
Me: I would love to... do you mind reminding me of the lyrics?
You: Give me my money back.

end scene.


Truly excited to be back on the road and playing for you.

Sasquatch

"Following last year's 10th anniversary, which crushed previous attendance records and set a new mark for the speed with which tickets sold out, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2012 lineup which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 25-28 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The Gorge, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA."
The Sasquatch! Music Festival takes place, as usual, at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington over Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28). And this year's lineup is:
