Prong @ Santos - 9/30/14

Long-running metal band Prong released their fourth album since their 2002 reunion and ninth overall, Ruining Lives, earlier this year and they've been on tour with another veteran metal band Overkill. That tour included a NYC show without Overkill that happened this past Tuesday (9/30) at Santos Party House (moved from Gramery Theatre). Though they're out supporting Ruining Lives, the band's been offering an even mix rather than just focusing on the new album (plus including their cover of Chrome's "Third From The Sun"). Sunlord opened the show. Pictures, including one of the setlist, are in this post.

Prong's not the only metal show that was recently moved from Gramercy to Santos. The Deicide / Septicflesh / Abysmal Dawn / Carach Angren / Inquisition show set for October 9 at Gramercy will now happen at Santos as well. Tickets are still available.

Mark Kamins

The celebration of Mark Kamins' life and times culminates at Santos Party House tonight. Konk will perform for the first time since 1986. Lady Miss Kier of Dee-Lite fame, as well. Coati Mundi, Crystal Ark, and a ton of other performers will crowd both floors of the club that most resembles the old- school type clubs where most of these folks did their thing ...in days of yore. A zillion DJs including Jellybean Benitez and Justin Strauss and Mike Pickering and Stretch Armstrong and Ivan Ivan and Jazzy Nice and and and.... will make musical statements about the man we and thousands of others loved. I will MC along with Jim Fouratt, Chi Chi Valenti, Michael Holman, and and and. Proceeds of the event will go to the Mark Kamins Scholarship Award in Electronic Music. Walter Durkacz is the puppeteer pulling all the strings that make this sort of thing happen. Not an easy gig. [Steven Lewis]
When Mark Kamins passed on to another plane earlier this year, he clearly left a large impact on the community. That community is banding together to celebrate his life and legacy tonight (4/17) at Santos Party House as part of "Mark & Cetra: A Pow Wow of Everybody in Celebration of DJ Mark Kamins." And they do mean "everybody".

This massive, two floor celebration will feature an almost endless number of legendary DJ talent like Jellybean Benitez, John Robie, Justin Strauss, Mike Pickering, Stretch Armstrong, Lady Miss Kier (Dee-Lite) and many more, as well as live band performances from names like KONK (doing their first show since 1986), Crystal Ark, Nomi Ruiz, Coati Mundi, Strafe and others.

Tickets are still available, with all proceeds going toward the Mark Kamins Scholarship for Electronic Music. Full schedule of events is below.

Front St. on Monday evening (via @iggsactly)

Lower Manhattan got it pretty good by Sandy, South Street Seaport included. The area was under multiple feet of water. The Seaport Music Festival, who put on the free shows down there, still had their stage set up. Some gear was ruined though they luckily had taken down the deck, lights, tent and canopy in preparation for the hurricane. No word on how the Beekman Beer Garden fared, though one Tweeter fears it is "definitely gone". Wine store Pasanella and Son was reportedly "decimated". Sadly, there has also been some looting at the Seaport's shops.

At a press conference this afternoon, Mayor Bloomberg, who recently confirmed at least 18 Sandy related deaths in NYC, announced that like the subways (Buses start returning tonight [10/30]), it may be three or four more days before power is restored to the tons of residents who lost it due to Hurricane Sandy. This includes all of lower Manhattan where, as you know, a whole lot of Manhattan music venues are. Which probably means no shows till the weekend for Pianos, Cake Shop, The Living Room, Arlene's Grocery, Fontana's, Rockwood Music Hall, The Slipper Room, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, Santos Party House, Le Poisson Rouge and others.

Good news, apart from no power, the Ludlow St. area venues all came out ok, with folks at Pianos, Cake Shop and Arlene's Grocery specifically saying there was no water damage. Williamsburg clubs, are getting somewhat back to normal sooner, with shows at Union Pool and Glasslands tonight.

Elsewhere, Park Slope/Gowanus's Bell House reports that they "had some minimal flooding but will be back to business as usual by tomorrow. Working on fundraiser ideas for you now " Bar 4 in Park Slope lost their awning.

Total Loss

As mentioned before, How to Dress Well's new album, Total Loss, will be out September 17 and that's the cover art above and you can check LP track "Cold Nights" below. If you pre-order the vinyl, you'll get a bonus 7" with your order.

HTDW is playing a few shows in Europe this summer and while he has no formal North American tour plans, he will be playing Santos on October 8. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday, August 10 at noon.

That song stream and all upcoming How to Dress Well dates are listed below.

Jeff the Brotherhood, Santos 7/18/2012
Jeff The Brotherhood
Jeff The Brotherhood

What do you get when you put JEFF the Brotherhood in a tiny room and make the show free and all-ages? Wildness. It has been a while since I've seen the Nashville duo play a room as small as Santos' basement and it was the cheerfully out-of-control thunderstorm I was hoping to experience. Mind you I wasn't in the thick of it, but it is certainly fun to watch. The mayhem started with the first chord of the first song and rarely let up, though Jake and Jamin stopped the show after three songs when things got too crazy up front and tried to remove a set of steps up to the stage, but after a minute of failed wrangling with them, just told the crowd to "be nice."

The show was a BV-presented release party for JEFF's new album, Hypnotic Nights, which came out this week. The band played a good half of the album, plus most of the JEFF "oldies" you'd want like "Bone Jam," "Mellow Out" and ripper "Heavy Days." "We'll be back sometime soon," Jake told the sweaty crowd. "Like usual." When, exactly, they'll be back is still up in the air but all JEFF tour dates are listed below.

Openers were Fuck Ton which is basically a Death by Audio house band, with head DbA-ers Edan Wilber and Matt Conboy providing the rhythm section, with gutteral screams and vocals by Travis of Grooms and Jay Heiselmann of The Immaculates (plus Mark Kleeb on electronics). Pure noise but entertaining for their short set, plus it brought a little of Death By Audio (the place JEFF has played more than anywhere else in NYC) to the Lower East Side (well, actually Chinatown).

More pictures of both bands from the Santos show are below...

JEFF the Brotherhood

JEFF the Brotherhood, who are just wrapped up a tour with Best Coast, have been on a steady climb for the last three years or so, touring their asses off, playing killer show after killer show and cranking out awesome records to boot. And even while the venues get bigger, JEFF always make a point to play smaller shows as well -- they have pretty much fit in a Death by Audio show every time they come through NYC. To boot, Jake and Jamin are also two of the nicest guys you're likely to meet.

I have a feeling JEFF are about to bust wide with their new album Hypnotic Nights, their first for Warner Brothers and maybe their best yet. Co-produced by JEFF and Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, the album is one catchy, crunchy jam after the next. And while I'm pretty sure Jake's guitar still only has three strings, the album sprinkles in keyboards and other instrumentation (did I hear saxaphone in there?) to fill out their sound just a bit. But it's the songs that make this record, crammed with stick-in-your-head hooks and riffs, "ooh oohs," "whoa-ohs" and big sing-a-long choruses that make this such a fun, inventive album. Oh, and it rocks. It's out Tuesday, July 17 and if you pre-order the album through their website you get a free can koozie, button and bumper sticker. It's streaming in full at NPR.

BrooklynVegan is happy to announce we're presenting a record release show at Santos Party House on Wednesday, July 18 with openers Fuck Ton. It's in the smaller Santos basement, not the main room, and is FREE. First-come, first served. Doors are at 8PM and the show's at 8:30PM. Flyer for the 16+ show is below.

We're also giving away five autographed vinyl copies of Hypnotic Nights with multi-use gatefold sleeve and a CD of the album too. Details on how to enter are below.

The Cribs at Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Guy Eppel)
The Cribs

The Cribs' North American tour starts this week and a bit of news that may be a good or bad thing depending on who you are: their NYC show this Wednesday (6/6) with Alex Winston and Devin has been moved from Irving Plaza to Santos Party House. Tickets are still available. If you haven't heard the band's new Steve Albini-"engineered" and Dave Fridmann-produced album, In the Belly of the Brazen Bull, it's probably their best since 2005's The New Fellas. You can stream it at the bottom of this post.

The Cribs just released a video for Brazen Bull track "Glitters Like Gold" and you can watch that below, along with a stream of the whole album and a list of all Cribs tour dates...

Big Freedia

Big Freedia made that booty clap at Santos Party House on May 17th, playing a late, late night show before a scheduled appearance at Bamboozle the next day. (She actually didn't make it... though she did play the afterparty.) Judging from these pictures, it looks like it was a typically off-the-hook night for Freedia and her crew. Check out more pictures below, along with a couple videos of the booty bounce mayhem.

If you have some time to kill, head on over to Big Freedia's site to play the Booty Battle video game. Otherwise, stay away... it's addictive.

Scottish producer Rustie released his great debut LP, Glass Swords, last year via Warp. Rustie, like Warp labelmate Hudson Mohawke, is making some of the dancier music of the UK bass scene with tracks like "Hover Traps" that pull equally from dubstep and '90s dance music. Stream some tracks from the album, and Rustie's most recent output, an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, below.

Rustie has a few North American dates this month including a Shortcuts party at Santos Party House on May 15 (tomorrow) with SpaceGhostPurrp, Mess Kid and Kilo Kish. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now. The flier for this show is below.

Speaking of Shortcuts parties, as mentioned, El-P is playing one to celebrate his album at Santos on 5/21 with Despot and many special guests. Tickets are still available.

Big Freedia

Big Freedia didn't make it to SXSW this year due to medical complications (at one point she was supposed to headline a night show at Hotel Vegas where she was replaced by Juvenile who then didn't show up).

DOWNLOAD: Teebs, Sonnymoon, Time Wharp - "Tour Promo Mix" (WAV)


Brainfeeder beatsmith Teebs and Prefuse 73, who Teebs probably picked up a few tricks from along the way, have announced that they'll be putting a collaborative album out together under the name Sons of the Morning. Prefix points to a series of tweets between the two producers starting with Teebs tweeting, "@prefuse73 im in NY on the 30th...you home then ?" and Prefuse 73 responding, "@teebsio yup! I'm there! + this musical email is amazing. I gt the Other '5/5/2k12'. @teebsio + @ prefuse73 are: "SONS OF THE MORNING."

Meanwhile, the reason that Teebs will be in NY today (3/30) is because his North American tour with Sonnymoon and Time Wharp is hitting Santos Party House TONIGHT (3/30). Doors are at 9 PM and tickets are $10 at the door. To promote the tour, the three producers made a "collaborative mix featuring recently released tracks from Teebs, Sonnymoon, & Time Wharp, as well as support acts, personal favorites, and remixes." Download that above or stream it below along with the tracklist, and a the tour flier.

Donald Glover's broken foot

Danny Brown was supposed to play Starland Ballroom in NJ last night (3/21), but that show didn't happen because headliner Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) recently fractured his foot. Donald wrote:

"This past Saturday I fractured my foot on stage in Tampa during a performance and was rushed to the emergency room.

The doctors say that if I stay off of my foot for a couple weeks and wear this boot, there's a good chance they can avoid surgery and start performing again soon.

I'm really upset by the timing of this. CAMP tour will go on, but dates will be postponed."

All dates from 3/16-4/3 have been rescheduled and are listed with new dates below. The new NJ date is 4/30, though it's unclear if Danny Brown will still be opening.

What is clear, is that depsite no NJ show last night, and being attacked with a lemon at SXSW, Danny Brown did make it to NYC for his now-SOLD OUT show at Santos Party House tonight (3/22). He'll also be back in the area in June when he plays the Roots Picnic in Philly, and when he opens for Childish Gambino at Central Park Summerstage after Bonnaroo.

Check out Danny's new video for "Radio Song" and the new CG dates below...

Django Django
Django Django

We've got some more news on the Django Django front. In addition to Kwes dropping off the March 10th Glasslands show, Django Django have added a second NYC show on Monday, March 12 at Santos Party House, that BrooklynVegan is co-presenting with the folks at Neon Gold and Popgun Booking. Also playing will be Clock Opera and Charlie XCX who also share a bill on March 10 at Knitting Factory. Tickets are on sale now for the Santos show.

Clock Opera
Clock Opera

Clock Opera's debut album, Ways to Forget, is out April 9 on Moshi Moshi. You can watch the video for the new single "Once and Again" at the bottom of this post. You can also stream their fantastic, radical reworking of Metronomy's "The Bay" which is included on The English Riveria - The Unreleased Remixes.

Charli XCX
Charli XCX

London's Charli XCX got a lot of attention last year for her singles "Stay Away" and "Nuclear Seasons" both of which mined '80s New Romantic synthpop. (You can watch the videos for both below.) She's currently recording her debut album, working with bigshot producers Patrik Berger (The Good Natured, Robyn) and Ariel Rechtshaid (Glasser, Theopolis London) while still attending London's Slade School of Fine Art (she's only 19).

As mentoned above, both Clock Opera and Charli XCX are also playing Knitting Factory on Saturday March 10. That show with Sub Pop-signed Nikki & the Dove, and tickets are still on sale. And they're all playing SXSW of course (Charli's official show is the Pitchfork showcase).

Django Django have just released a stream for "Storm" which was actually the band's first single nearly three years ago. You can stream the whole Django Django album at Spotify and buy it digitally wherever high-quality MP3s are sold.

Click through for flyers for both Django Django shows, along with videos and streams mentioned above.

Santos Party House, Oslo, Norway
World Snowboarding Championships

I recently spent the better part of two weeks in Norway covering a doubleheader of events in the capital city of Oslo - first the Santos Party House Annex during the World Snowboarding Championships and then the by:Larm Music Festival. The first part of my trip included shows with Turbonegro (who may be heading back to the US soon), Andrew WK & the WSC House Band, and Dropkick Murphys (who have shows coming up in Long Island and CT), and visits to Bergen, Voss (yes, like the water), and Flam. It's all detailed, many pictures included, below...

ScHoolboy Q
Schoolboy Q

ScHoolboy Q, who has been making tons of buzz lately, has a few upcoming shows, including one in NYC this week happening at Santos Party House on Thursday (2/23) with Kris Kasanova, Flatbush Zombies (who opened the A$AP Rocky show that Q guested at), and Nakim. The flier for this show is below.

If you haven't seen it yet, fellow Black Hippy collective member Kendrick Lamar and Danny Brown (who Q recently joined on stage in LA) are both on the cover of the new issue of the FADER (pictured below) and Black Hippy and Danny Brown were both profiled in the issue. The Black Hippy piece, which you can read HERE, mentions that ScHoolboy Q came up with the idea for the group:

"[Black Hippy] was actually my idea because I was slacking in my music," adds Q. "I figured if I could be in a group I could just write one verse and I could be good." He admits to being intimidated when he first started coming to the studio but eventually the tenacity of his collaborators rubbed off on him. Now he raps effortlessly in elastic word blurs. And while he still habitually clowns everyone good-naturedly--On Lamar: "When I first heard Kendrick, I'm like this nigga a bitch, I don't like this nigga"; on the possibility of a Black Hippy full length: "That shit ain't never gonna come out."--their collective pride in his rapid improvement runs deeply. So much so, that they unanimously anoint him the most talented rapper in the group. Q, of course, concurs.
Kendrick Lamar also recently dropped a killer out-there track with Gunplay called "Cartoon & Cereal" which is way less elementary than its name implies. Download that above or stream it below.

Fader Issue 78

Danny Brown, whose FADER profile piece you can read HERE, also has a Santos show coming up which happens on March 22. Tickets for that show are still available.

The World Snowboarding Championship in association with Innovation Norway, Visit Oslo and Santos Party House will be hosting the international launch party for WSC 2012 on November 18th. This special reception is a pre-cursor to the WSC which will go down Feb 10th-19th 2012 in Oslo, Norway (the world's winter capital and coolest destination for snowboarding in Europe). It will be hosted by none other than world ambassador of rock and the man behind Santos, Andrew W.K.. W.K. will also perform the official theme song to WSC 2012 "Go Go Go Go" live for the first time ever as well as premiere the video to the song. The song personally shouts out some of the top international snowboarders in the world today including Mark McMorris (Canada), Tyler Flanagan (USA), Kazuhiro Kokubo (Japan) and Peetu Piiroinen (Finland) and is packed with the energetic and frenetic signature style that W.K. is known for.
Unfortunately the pre-party (6-8pm) featuring free drinks and that short AWK performance is invite only, but we have two pairs of tickets you can win. Details on how to enter the contest are at the bottom of this post.

Tickets are still available for the public Turbonegro portion happening later in the night.

Turbonegro will reunite to play Santos Party House on 11/18, as part of the World Snowboarding Championships (WSC) kick-off party with host Andrew W.K. Tickets are on sale. The band, who recently parted ways with long-time vocalist Hank von Helvete, will be sporting the following lineup: Tony Sylvester, Happy-Tom, Euroboy, Pål Pot Pamparius, Rune "Rune Rebellion" Green, Tomas Dahl.

Here's what those involved have to say about it:

"This is just unbelievable," says Andrew W.K., co-owner of Santos Party House, and the entertainment beacon of the WSC. "We're hosting the first TURBONEGRO concert in the USA with their new singer and it's a dream come true for me, Santos, and New York City in general. Making it all part of the WSC opening party just takes it over the top! It's going to be unreal. TURBONEGRO are one of my favorite bands of all time, and so many other people around the world have been looking forward to their return. Santos and I are thrilled to be involved in this important event."

TURBONEGRO says: "We are super stoked to be involved in the World Snowboarding Championships, which we know will be the most rock'n'roll sports event ever."

WSC CEO, Henning Andersen says: "It was Happy Tom from TURBONEGRO that connected us with Andrew W.K. in the first place. Now Turbonegro supports the WSC with an exclusive US gig at Santos Party House. It almost feels too good to be true! Making this happen in New York helps us pay respect to the origin of our sport. Our heritage is American board sports and the great lifestyle that comes with it."

So far, the show seems to be a single, one-off US reunion show and their first US date since Coachella 2009. We'll let you know if that changes, but until then enjoy some Turbonegro videos below.

Main Attrakionz

Lo-fi rappers Main Attrakionz (aka Squadda B and Mondre) dropped a new album 808s & Dark Grapes II last week (8/16) for free on their bandcamp. It's a pretty tight collection of hazy blown out beats and laid back flow. Check out the Clams Casino-produced "Take 1" featuring ASAP Rocky, which you can grab above. Tee album art, tracklist, and a video for "Perfect Skies" are below.

Main Attrakionz will make their NYC debut on Friday (8/26) at the New Museum. Tickets are on sale now and are $2 less for New Museum members. The show will also include the premiere of a new video work by AHYVE, who is on the Main Attrakionz LP, and a DJ set by Walkmaster Flex. Ethan Swan interviewed the duo for the New Museum blog. Here's what the guys had to say about coming to New York:

What are your feelings about playing in New York for the first time?

S: Excited man, definitely a blessing.

You've collaborated with and/or shouted out some New York artists in the past, is there anyone you're looking forward to meeting in person at the show? Do you have a wish list of New Yorkers you'd like to show up?

S: No I didn't have no wish list. There's a lot of artists I do want to meet from New York, though.

M: Diddy should bring some Ciroc.

S: I do wanna meet Diddy.

M: And tell Dame Dash to stop in.

S: For sure Dame Dash! Styles P.

M: Mazaradi Fox. The whole 5 Boroughs, man.

S: Man I fuck with NY, all 5 boroughs.

M: I wanna see who got the lo-fi lab out there, recording out the closet.
