POp 1280

Pop. 1280 release their third album, Paradise, on Friday (1/22) via Sacred Bones. For those unfamiliar, the Brooklyn band like it the bleaker the better, recalling '80s gothy postpunk and industrial. The new album is a refutation of our technology obsessed culture. You can check out "Chromida" and "Pyramids on Mars" from the LP below.

The band will celebrate, in their own way, Paradise's release with a show at Brooklyn's Alphaville on Saturday (1/23) with Bambara and The Sediment Club. Tickets are on sale. Pop. 1280 will then go on a short North American tour in February, followed by UK and European dates in the spring. All dates are listed below.

Brooklyn trio Bambara make swaggering, pitch-black, howing rock in the mould of Swans, The Birthday Party and The Gun Club. The band are gearing up to release their second album, Swarm, which will be out March 4 via Arrowhawk. You can check out first single "An Ill Son," which mixes bile with a little twang, below.

Bambara, whose amplifiers are usually stuck set to "tinnitus," will play Brooklyn's Alphaville on Saturday (1/23) which is Pop. 1280's record release party which also has The Sediment Club on the bill. Tickets are on sale.

Against Me!
Against Me

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Against Me!, Cakes Da Killa, Big Eyes @ Stone Pony (BV Presents)
The next BrooklynVegan-curated installment of Red Bull Sound Select is tonight and it happens in Asbury Park at the Stone Pony. Headlining is one of our favorite punk bands around, Against Me!, and before them it's NYC queer rapper Cakes Da Killa and more punk from Big Eyes. It's just $3 with RSVP but admission is first come, first served. Hope to see you there!

AJ Davila y Terror Amor, The Teen Age @ Elvis Guesthouse
Davila 666 frontman AJ Davila plays tonight with his other fearsome garagepunk band Terror Amor. His wild shows are a pretty safe bet for a good time and seeing him at tiny Elvis Guesthouse should be crazy.

Prince Rama, Giant Claw, Darren Keen, Macula Dog @ Palisades
New age mystics and spacey party-starters Prince Rama love to involve the crowd at their shows, be it with group dance or yoga meditations. You never know exactly what's going to happen, but it's rarely dull.

Xylouris White, Luluc @ Union Pool
Xylouris White is the duo of Dirty Three's Jim White and Cretan folk musician George Xylouris. Their debut album, Goats, mixes Xylouris' traditional lute style and White's avant leanings, making for a very interesting listen that is all the more captivating live. Their two-night stand at Union Pool concludes tonight.

Clark, Heathered Pearls, Lord Raja, Logan Takahashi, Safer At Night @ Good Room
It's the first of two NYC shows this weekend for Clark, who's been making consistently great IDM for over a decade. His most recent album is last year's self-titled LP on Warp.

Old Man Gloom, Mare @ Saint Vitus
Old Man Gloom have members of Converge, Cave In and Isis, and they're riding high off last year's The Ape of God which was one of the better metal albums of 2014. They're on tour with the reunited sludge band Mare, and tonight concludes their sold-out two-night stay at Saint Vitus.

Mick Jenkins, STWO @ Highline Ballroom
Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins continues to pick up more and more buzz, and tonight he comes to NYC for a pretty big show at HIghline Ballroom.

Revocation, Cannabis Corpse, Archspire, Black Fast, Sicada @ The Studio at Webster Hall
It's a night of metal at the Studio at Webster Hall, led by the tech-y Revocation and the weed-loving Cannabis Corpse.

Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Anthony Jeselnik, Jay Pharaoh, Jeff Ross, Jim Norton, Michael Che, Nick Kroll, Todd Barry @ Jones Beach (Oddball)
The annual Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival puts some of the best comedians of the moment together for a huge tour, and tonight's the first NYC-area stop. Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer were both on the 2014 tour, but there's no denying their careers got major boosts in the past year, so it's exciting to see this time they're back as co-headliners. The rest of the lineup ain't too shabby either.

Electric Zoo @ Randall's Island
The three-day EDM fest Electric Zoo returns to NYC this weekend. It's mostly the kinds of big names you usually se at these types of festivals, but today also has some cool stuff like The Chemical Brothers, Cashmere Cat, The Martinez Brothers and Wave Racer.

Sediment Club, Ava Mendoza's Unnatural Ways, Cellular Chaos, Reina Terror @ Trans-Pecos
Trans-Pecos has a good lineup tonight (as usual) with no wavers Sediment Club, experimental guitarist Ava Mendoza and more.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

ancient sky

Brooklyn heavy psych practitioners Ancient Sky will release their new album, Mosaic, on June 9 via Wharf Cat. The album was produced by Ben Greenberg of The Men and really shows off the band's dynamic finesse -- intense, but with plenty of headspace. You can listen to the whole thing right now, below.

Ancient Sky will celebrate Mosaic at Brooklyn's Union Pool on Saturday (6/6) with Dommengang, and Marisa Anderson. That show is $10 at the door. They'll also play the Wharf Cat Northside Fest showcase at Shea Stadium on June 13 that's also with Gun Outfit, The Ukiah Drag, Sediment Club, and Psychic Blood. Tickets are $10 and you can also get in with a Northside badge (based on capacity). Flyer for the Northside show is below.

The day 1 lineup includes Fred Thomas, Gun Outfit, Mitski and Dreamcrusher. Tickets are on sale.

Fred Thomas recently wrapped up a 2-night stand in NYC on his current tour. Mitski has a tour with Elvis Depressedly and Eskimeaux coming up too.

They play the Wharf Cat Records showcase on June 13 at Shea Stadium with The Ukiah Drag, Sediment Club, Ancient Sky and Psychic Blood. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Gun Outfit and Ukiah Drag also both play Berserktown in LA.

Post-punk bass and drum duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat were most recently in NYC last month opening for APTBS and Grooms, and they'll return this week before heading to Austin for SXSW.

The Baltimore band will hit Palisades on Wednesday (3/18) with no wavers Sediment Club and avant popsters Cloud Becomes Your Hand. Tickets are on sale. Maybe they'll have those cool tour t-shirts they had on the APTBS tour?

All of their dates, including their SXSW schedule, and a video from their recent MHOW show, below...

Strand of Oaks in Austin in 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Yo La Tengo, The Feelies @ Town Hall
While their Maxwell's Hanukkah shows are sorely missed, Yo La Tengo will be celebrating the season -- and their 30th anniversary -- with two shows at Town Hall, tonight being the second. Tonight's show is with another legendary NJ indie rock outfit. Sold out.

tUnE-yArDs, Cibo Matto, Beep! @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
tUnE-yArDs dove further into their world of quirky, eccentric pop on this year's Nikki Nack, and Cibo Matto returned with their first album since 1999 which had them still in good form. Tonight begins their 4-night run at MHOW.

Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls with Ice Choir @ Converse SOHO
This free in-store performance sounds kinda cool: Dee Dee doing a full set of Dum Dum Girls songs as backed (and arranged) by Kurt Feldman's new romantic synthpop outfit Ice Choir. It's a free show (one of a few around the country) in celebration of a new multi-artist holiday EP that will be available on vinyl only at these shows.

Strand of Oaks, Torres @ Bowery Ballroom
Strand of Oaks made the move from an introverted folk singer to a big-sounding folk rock band this year, and the change has been pretty successful. Tonight's their largest headlining show in NYC yet, and it's a great double bill with Torres' grungy folk.

New Build, Future Punx, Orange Cassettes @ Rough Trade
New Build, the side project of Hot Chip's Al Doyle and Felix Martin, play their second NYC show of the week. This one is without tourmates Museum of Love but in their place are local new wavers Future Punx, and Orange Cassettes which is the new band from Radio 4's Anthony Roman.

TEEN, Beverly, Charly Bliss, Scully @ Glasslands
TEEN have played Glasslands many times over the last few years and will say goodbye to the soon-to-close venue as part of a very good bill of indie rock.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Antibalas, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens @ Apollo Theater
Tonight's the first of Daptone's three-day holiday party called the Super Soul Revue at the iconic Harlem venue.

Junius, So Hideous, In Aeona @ Saint Vitus
Tis the season to be jolly, and Prosthetic Records are celebrating with a decidedly un-jolly holiday party at Saint Vitus tonight. Heavy post-rockers Junius and likeminded locals So Hideous will stack this show with dark atmospheres. Admission gets you a free glass of Prosthetic Imperial Black Ale brewed specially for the occasion by Sixpoint Brewery.

Shad, Kahli Abdu, Jay Wirth @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Alt-rapper Shad keeps the golden age hip hop vibes alive on his new EP, Boarding Pass, which came out this week. Tonight he's in NYC for a one-off show.

X Blank X, Cellular Chaos, Ron Anderson/Richard Hoffman/Brian Chase Band, Sediment Club @ Cake Shop
Mid 70's Cleveland art punk band X__X reformed earlier in 2014 for their first live shows in 35 years. Tonight's show is with a group of fittingly experimental acts, including Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase.

Oliver, Plastic Plates, Alex English, Dali, Hiyawatha, Maximillion Dunbar, Shawn Reynaldo, Contakt, Bobby B @ Output
Dance duo Oliver get funky on their new Light Years Away EP for Fool's Gold. They're on tour in support of it, hitting Output for their weekly INPUT party tonight with Plastic Plates and some of the Girls & Boys DJs. Maxmillion Dunbar and others are in the Panther Room.

Low Fat Getting High, Grizzlor, Ceramics, biggpigg @ Grand Victory
Low Fat Getting High have been one of the more promising bands in Brooklyn's DIY rock scene as of late thanks to their catchy and aggressive grunge/punk hybrid. Their debut LP finally came out a few weeks ago, and tonight they'll likely be ripping through plenty of that.

John Zorn's Masada Marathon w/ Abraxas, Forro in the Dark, Sfia Rei, Erik Friedlander, Uri Gurvich @ Nublu
Part of the Nublu Jazz Fest, tonight's lineup was curated by Downtown icon John Zorn.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Protomartyr at DbA during CMJ (via @brooklynvegan)

As you know, Death By Audio will be gone forever in less than a month, November 22nd to be exact. This message is currently up on their website:

Note for Nov: we are having our final show on 11/22 and we will be releasing the schedule for this month bit by bit as to keep everyone on their toes, we will be open every night, just dont wanna give away all the fun. stay tuned, and if you are wondering about playing one of these shows, im sorry but the schedule is full. thanks for all the wonderful years!
Recent notable shows have included a packed week of CMJ (including Porches, the Burger Records showcase, and Wreckless Eric), 24 hours of drone, JEFF the Brotherhood & Diarrhea Planet, and last night's A Place To Bury Strangers show (photos coming soon).

As of today (10/28), 14 of the 22 final November shows are listed, though many of them just include secret guests (obvious candidates who haven't played there recently include Dan Deacon, Future Islands, Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall). The last two nights are "Top Secret." Speedy Ortiz, Hunters, Fiasco, Coasting, Pampers, Pujol, Tyvek, Shellshag, and many more are among those already listed. They knocked out the wall dividing the main room and the bar room, so crazy shows are a little more comfortable now. Most of these last shows do not have advance tickets, so if you're going to one of the more notable ones, be sure to get there early. (Last night's APTBS show sold out around 10 PM.) Check out the full posted schedule, including the Dirty On Purpose Reunion (11/1), the Halloween show with Aa, Liturgy and two nights of Oozing Wound, below...

Bear in Heaven @ Bowery Ballroom, 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Bear in Heaven @ Rough Trade
This is a record release show for Brooklyn spacerockers Bear in Heaven's new album Time is Over One Day Old. To get in you need to buy a copy of the record today at Rough Trade (but you get two wristbands to get in for one purchase).

Hamish Kilgour, The Estrogen Highs, Civil Union, Hippy @ Cake Shop
Conneticuit's Estrogen Highs will have a new album on Trouble In Mind this fall, so head here tonight for an early taste, with a solo set from The Clean's Hamish Kilgour, and Aukland, NZ's Civil Union.

Degreaser, Sediment Club, Greg Fox, Savini Psoas, Weasel Walter @ Death By Audio
It's going to be a noisy night at Death by Audio, with well-named Brooklyn band DeGreaser, Providence, RI's Sediment Club, and sometimes Liturgy drummer Greg Fox. (Earplugs are a buck at the bar, by the way.)

20,000 Days on Earth screening w/ Nick Cave @ Florence Gould Hall
Nick Cave documentary 20,000 Days on Earth screens tonight with a Q&A and solo set from the man himself. Sold out as you might imagine.

Wyatt Cenac's Night Train @ Littlefield
Hop aboard Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy show tonight with guests Jessi Klein, Jeffrey Joseph, Sean Donnelly, and Candy Lawrence.

RatKing @ S.O.B.'s
Following their performance at Lollapalooza over the weekend, local rap act Ratking will play to a slightly smaller audience tonight.

Boris, Youth Worship @ Saint Vitus
Japanese shapeshifters Boris are makers of sludge metal, J Pop, and several other things that exist in that giant spectrum. Their newest album, Noise, is appropriately named and full of rippers. Tonight's show, however, will be one of their "drumless drone" shows.

The Offspring, Bad Religion, Pennywise, The Vandals @ Terminal 5
The Offspring's classic, Smash, is two decades old this year. They'll play that in full, with the undercard being their old Epitaph labelmates Bad Religion and Pennywise.

Bob Log III @ McKittrick Hotel
Self-described one-man-band-guitar-party-dance-mess Bob Log III is currently on tour bringing that wild thing he does to the McKittrick Hotel tonight.

The Fixx @ HighLine Ballroom
New wave / post-punk band The Fixx had hits like "Saved by Zero" and "One Thing Leads to Another" in the '80s and have continued to make records, most recently 2012's Beautiful Friction. Tonight's setlist was chose by fans.

Old Crow Medicine Show, Spirit Family Reunion, Langhorne Slim @ Central Park Summerstage
A night of modern-day folk pop under the stars in Central Park -- there are worse ways to spend a Monday night.

John Fogerty, Jackson Browne @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Former frontman of swamp rock vets Creedence Clearwater Revival and active solo artist John Fogerty plays tonight with mellow man and '70s icon Jackson Brown.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Priests at DbA in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)

You've already heard the midtempo "Right Wing" from DC post-punks Priests' new album Bodies and Control and Money and Power (due out 6/3 via Don Giovanni) and since we last spoke the more abrasive "Doctor" was released. Check that out below.

Priests also recently announced a tour which kicks off in DC the day before the new record comes out and comes to NYC for two shows on release day (6/3). First they play an early show at ABC No Rio with In Circles and Pour the Pirate Sherry, and then a late show at Cake Shop with In School and Sediment Club.

All dates are listed, with the "Doctor" song stream, below...

Guerilla Toss - 'Gay Disco'
Guerilla Toss

Guerilla Toss hail from the growing Massachusetts rock scene (Speedy Ortiz included them on their top Massachusetts albums of 2013), but while '90s indie rock is the main inspiration for most of those bands, Guerilla Toss are more interested in the dissonant sounds of noise rock and wacky art punk. Their newest album, Gay Disco, came out this past December via NNA Tapes (Blanche Blanche Blanche, Co La) and you can stream two of its tracks, "Pink Elephant" and "Trash Bed," below.

Guerilla Toss played NYC a few times last year, often with labelmates Blanche Blanche Blanche, and they've got a few upcoming shows with another NNA artist, Ryan Power, that brings them back to NYC this month. They'll play an album release show on January 30 at Silent Barn, and that bill also includes no wavers Sediment Club, Northern Spy-signed NYC avant-pop band Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Baltimore experimentalists Horse Lords, No Magic, Brat Pit and Jeremy Smoking (Justin from PC Worship). That show is $10 at the door. All dates are listed below.

Cloud Becomes Your Hand also have a bunch of other local dates coming up, before they head out on a longer North American tour with Guerilla Toss in March that kicks off in NYC on March 2 at Roulette and takes them to SXSW. All of those dates are listed, along with streams, below...

Fucked Up @ Governors Ball 2013 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Fucked up

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Fucked Up, DIIV, White Lung, Guardian Alien, LODRO @ 285 Kent
Tonight is the very last show at Brooklyn DIY venue 285 Kent before it closes, and they've got one helluva lineup for it. Things kick off with local dark rockers LODRO and local experimentalists Guardian Alien (whose lineup includes ex-Liturgy drummer Greg Fox). Then it's the ambitious yet ferocious punk of Vancouver's White Lung, Brooklyn's DIIV who always put on enjoyable shows, and the super-fun hardcore band Fucked Up whose Damien Abraham is sure to end up in as many corners of 285 Kent that his mic cable will reach.

Disclosure, Vic Mensa, Bishop Nehru, Samo Sound Boy @ Terminal 5
In a year where Daft Punk made a huge comeback, Disclosure were still dance duo of 2013 thanks to a killer album jam-packed with hits that translate just as well to the dancefloor. Needless to say, these three nights at Terminal 5 will be a killer time.

Pixies, Asphalt Orchestra @ Capitol Theatre
Though the Pixies have admitted you can never truly replace Kim Deal, the band are moving on and continuing to tour and release music without her. Tonight they bring their tour (with current bassist Paz Lechantin of A Perfect Circle/Zwan/Entrance Band) to the Capitol Theatre for their first of two NYC-area shows this week. Opening is Asphalt Orchestra, who will do marching band covers of Pixies songs.

Self Defense Family, Pity Sex, Ovlov, Loss Leader, Deep Pockets @ Santos Party House
Self Defense Family (fka End of a Year) just released their first album under their new name, Try Me (via Deathwish), which combines passionate, spoken-word-meets-yelling vocals with indie rock-leaning post-hardcore. And Pity Sex offer a great mix of the current wave of emo with poppy shoegaze more akin to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart than The World Is A Beautiful Place. Together that makes for an excellent double bill.

Bomb the Music Industry!, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Cheap Girls @ Warsaw
Tonight's the last-ever show for Bomb the Music Industry! Sold out, but if you already have tickets, we recommend getting there early for Michigan power poppers Cheap Girls.

Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven @ Highline Ballroom
David Lowery spent the '80s in snarky multi-culti folk group Camper Van Beethoven and transitioned into '90s rock with Cracker. You get both sides tonight

Advaeta, Sediment Club, New England Patriots, Palberta @ Death by Audio
Very noisy Rhode Island band Sediment Club and Boston's New England Patriots are on tour together and stop at DbA tonight.

Talib Kweli @ SOB's
It's the second-annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at SOB's, headlined by veteran Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli.

Dead Leaf Echo, Tiers, Gold @ Mercury Lounge
Feeling dark and hazy? Revel in it with shoegazy Dead Leaf Echo and coldwavers Tiers who share your gloomy worldview.

Royal Bangs, Bad Suns, Cosmonaut @ Baby's All Right
Knoxville, TN riff rockers Royal Bangs have been kicking around for nearly a decade and last year released their fourth album, Brass, which was produced by Black Keys' Patrick Carney.

Jay Z @ Nassau Coliseum
Jay Z recently did two nights at Barclays Center, and tonight he's just a bit outside of home for this Nassau Coliseum show.

Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Get there early.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

by Doug Moore

We debuted a new song from Oozing Wound's killer debut album Retrash over at Invisible Oranges this morning. Since I just finished writing about it over there, I'll let myself, um, speak for myself:

"Like Noisem or Slutvomit (who also have a sweet record out this year), Oozing Wound juices up their thrash with ingredients from newer, scarier parts of the metal world. Where Noisem draws on death metal and Slutvomit borrows from black metal, these guys thicken their brew with sludge. The effect is like Slayer on an all-hamburger diet, or like High on Fire with a far larger thrash component. Incidentally, High on Fire is one of the three bands they list as an influence on their FB; the other two are Black Sabbath and...the Carpenters. Very funny, guys."
Be sure to check out the whole spiel over at IO. Retrash comes out on 10/15 through Thrill Jockey (who are really digging into this metal stuff these days); preorder it here.

Oozing Wound are also gearing up for a run of East Coast/Midwestern North American dates. The tour hits New York City twice: first at Death By Audio on 10/30 with shoegaze trio The Dreebs, the gothy Pop 1280, and no wavers Sediment Club, and then again at Secret Project Robot on 11/3 with Guardian Alien (aka former Liturgy drummer Greg Fox), Skimask, and Child Abuse (who also play this week). No advance tickets for those shows.

Stream Oozing Wound's "Call Your Guy", watch a video of a second song ("Welcome to the Spaceship, Motherfucker"), and check out the full run of dates below...

Speedy Ortiz @ DbA - 7/5/13
Speedy Ortiz @ Death By Audio - 7/5/2013

Like the album, which at its best is clever and cutting, the show picked up in the second half, when [Sadie] Dupuis began to slash through the heaviness of the room, and also climb above the rest of the band -- Matt Robidoux on guitar, Darl Ferm on bass, Mike Falcone on drums -- with a voice that could be savage, on "MKVI," or deceptively sweet, on "No Below," or tart, as on "Gary," which is the album's emotional highlight. That song includes some of Ms Dupuis's sharpest lyrics, aimed at someone who left her for someone far less interesting. [New York Times]
Speedy Ortiz release their debut album, Major Arcana, this week (7/9) via Carpark, and over the weekend they played release shows in NYC and Boston. The NYC show was a very sweaty one at Death by Audio on Friday (7/5), where they played the new album front to back, which singer Sadie Dupuis told the crowd they've never practiced or done before, as the NY Times (!!!) review quoted above points out.

The NYC release show had support from a totally stacked lineup, which also included grungy Baltimoreans Roomrunner, sludge rockers California X, no wave revivalists Sediment Club, and No One & the Somebodies. Pictures of the show are in this post.

Speedy Ortiz kick off their full tour in support of the album this week, hitting Chicago, Austin, and many other US cities.

Speedy Ortiz

Northampton, MA indie rockers Speedy Ortiz are set to release their debut LP, Major Arcana, next week (7/9) via Carpark; and after revealing the songs "Tiger Tank," "No Below," and "Plough" from that LP, they've finally made the entire album available to listen to on NPR.

Major Arcana bests all of the already-great material Speedy Ortiz has put out so far, bringing together powerful rock riffage and raw honest lyrics into 10 tracks of concise songwriting that clock in just over a half hour. It's one of the best debuts I've heard this year, and recommended to anyone who likes traditionalist indie rock with a new spin.

Speedy Ortiz are about to kick off a full tour in support of the album that begins with a record release show in NYC on Friday (7/5) at Death by Audio with Baltimore grunge revivers Roomrunner, Amherst sludge rock trio California X, Brooklyn no wave revivalists Sediment Club (whose Austin Julian is the son of Bush Tetras' Cynthia Sley and Voidoids' Ivan Julian), and No One & the Somebodies. Admission for that show is $8 at the door.

Updated dates are listed, along with streams of three Major Arcana tracks, below...

Suicide at Moogfest 2011 (more by Diana Wong)

Due to illness, Suicide has cancelled their previously discussed appearance where they were planning on perforiming their first LP in its entirety. Bush Tetras, originally scheduled for the support slot at LPR on 11/29, has now moved to the top of the heap alongside supporting band Sediment Club.

All tickets will be honored for the show, which is now billed as a release party for Bush Tetras new LP Happy. The record, laid tape in 1998, was released last week via Reachout International. The first 50 people through the door get a copy for free.

by Andrew Sacher


As mentioned, NYC post-punk vets Suicide and Bush Tetras will co-headline Le Poisson Rouge on November 29. Tickets for that show are still available.

What we didn't know when we first mentioned that show, is that Suicide will be performing their influential 1977 debut LP, Suicide, in its entirety at the show. If you're unfamiliar, it shared ground with the desolate monotonic sounds of no wave, the spirit of early punk, the ever-growing synthesizer innovations of the era, and it has gone to directly influence the synthpunk genre (plus other things like Bruce Springsteen). You can stream the whole album below.

The show will be supported by Brooklyn no wave revivalists Sediment Club, whose members include Austin Julian, son of Bush Tetras' Cynthia Sley and Voidoids' Ivan Julian. Ivan spoke about his son's band last year, saying, "They sound like a mixture of The Voidoids meets The Bush Tetras meets The Contortions. Amazing stuff!" Though Ivan essentially says it sounds like his dad's band meets his mom's band, it's actually a pretty fair assessment and the band sound pretty great. You can stream some of their stuff below.

All streams and a list of all Sediment Club dates are below...

Ivan Julian @ Bowery Electric in 2010 (more by Lori Baily)
Ivan Julian

Deniz Tek, guitarist of '70s Australian punk heroes Radio Birdman, and Ivan Julian of early NYC punks Richard Hell and the Voidoids have a few upcoming shows together. Those shows include August 26 at The Bell House and August 27 at Maxwell's. Tickets are on sale now for The Bell House show and the Maxwell's show.

Ivan Julian released his first solo album earlier this year, The Naked Flame, which he performed at SXSW. Check out a video of Ivan and his band at SXSW below performing the Voidoid's classic "Love Comes in Spurts," along with The Naked Flame artwork and tracklist, and a music video for the album's title track. The album can be purchased as LP/CD/MP3 on Amazon. You can also stream the entire thing on his myspace. Ivan recently spoke to IRT about his new album, music in general, and other stuff. The guitarist, who was part of the late '70s CBGB's scene, talked about some of the more modern stuff he's into:

IRT: What are some upcoming albums we could look forward to that were recorded out of NY HED? Do you have a particular favorite album that came out of your studio? What would it be and why?

Ivan: I'm very excited about a band I produced called Hunx and his Punx from San Francisco. Their record, 'Too Young to be In Love' is out now and I'm very pleased with the results.
