The Psychic Paramount at Cake Shop (more by BBG)
Brooklyn prog-kraut-acid rock trio The Psychic Paramount have already announced appearances at Pitchfork and Capitol Hill Block Party. Before that they'll head out for a string of dates on the East Coast. Kicking off in Quebec City, the band will head back south for dates in Providence, Boston, and Burlington before eventually ending the short tour with a show at Le Poisson Rouge on May 19th with Noveller. Tickets are on sale.
The Psychic Paramount are currently working on their new LP, so it wouldn't be too far-fetched to expect some new jams at the dates listed below.
Noveller is also on board for a show just a little more than a month later, when Sarah Lipstate will support Nadja with Lazurite at Glasslands on June 20th. Tickets are on sale for the show, one of only two US dates scheduled at the moment.
In related news, you can stream the spankin new Aidan Baker (of Nadja) and Richard Baker collaborative release Variations On A Loop (Rhythms) below alongside the recent Nadja release Excision.
All streams and dates are below.

Parts & Labor have a short string of shows coming up: one in Massachusetts on December 5th, one in Connecticut on December 6th, then a free show at Brooklyn Bowl on Tuesday, December 8th with The Tony Castles. Flyer for the latter and more details below.
Before that, P&L member Dan Friel plays a solo set at Union Pool on December 3rd. Also on the bill are Knyfe Hyts 81, Dinowalrus and Electric Tickle Machine.
Another Parts & Labor affiliate, their former guitar player Sarah Lipstate (she left the band in July to focus on her solo project after being a member for only 14 months), who plays as Noveller, will perform at Bruar Falls on December 11th with Yellow Fever and Air Waves (who are also playing December 5th with Talk Normal, US Girls and Total Slackers at Secret Project Robot).
That's also another show for Austin's Yellow Fever, who are already lined up to play a December 12th show at Death By Audio with Vivian Girls. Yellow Fever's self-titled LP is available now through Wild World, a label run by Vivian Girls, and the show is a release party for that record. Happy Birthday is also on the bill. Yellow Fever also lists a TBA NYC show on December 13th.
Happy Birthday member Ruth Garbus plays a show with her sister Merrill Garbus at The Stone in December too.
As of now, it's the last scheduled Vivian Girls show for '09 before they tour the UK in January.

Dan Friel @ Cake Shop, NYC - New Years Eve (Dec 31, 2008)
ATP NY (2008) (think all the way back to September for a second) was littered with luminaries. We've previously documented our run-ins with some of the great performers, but we also ran into a few artists who were just there for the good time. One of those artists was Dan Friel.
Friel is probably best known for his participation in Parts & Labor, the Brooklyn experimental noise pop/rock band he formed in 2002 with BJ Warshaw (also of Shooting Spires). Over the years, Parts & Labor have released three LPs and multiple seven-inches, contributed to many a compilation, and even dropped a split LP with Tyondai Braxton (Battles). All along, Dan Friel has been working on solo material... dropping EPs and a cassette leading up to 2008's triumphant Ghost Town, out now on Important.
We cornered Dan Friel at ATP (literally... he could NOT escape) for a couple minutes to discuss the festival and his plans for the next few months.
So Dan, what were some of the motivating factors for you coming to ATP? What are some of the bands you really wanted to check out?
Dan Friel: Today I'm pretty excited about seeing Polvo. I've been sort of starting to listen to them again, a bunch in the last couple of years which I think a lot of people have, and it will be great to see them play again. I haven't seen Lightning Bolt in a couple of years, so that'll be pretty cool. I've never seen Low, and that's kind of a big deal because I like their records quite a bit. And Fuck Buttons and Alexander Tucker are both friends and amazing people. So I'm excited to check that out.
