Carpark Records, home of Toro Y Moi, Speedy Ortiz, TEEN, Young Magic, and many more, is celebrating its 16th anniversary this year which means it's old enough to drive. For the occasion, they're releasing a super sweet basketball themed compilation on May 26 featuring 19 bands from their current roster. Most of the songs were recorded specifically for the comp (and are about hoops), including TEEN's "Dylan and Chong Playing Basketball" which makes its premiere in this post. You can stream it, and check out a Toro Y Moi vine, below.
There will also be a few Carpark anniversary shows, including one at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on March 6 with Lexie Mountain Boys, Greg Davis, Greys, Chandos, Ear Pwr, Safety Scissors, Adventure, Jimmy Whispers, and DJs Young Magic and Montag. Tickets for that show are on sale. There will be one in DC, plus one in Austin during SXSW as well. Details on those are below.
Dan Deacon & fans @ Fun Fun Fun Fest
Dan Deacon, now signed to Domino (!) for a record due in 2012 (more details TBA), has still got it. Earlier this month, as you can see in the pictures here, I witnessed him play to a giant crowd of rabid fans at Fun Fun Fun Fest. As usual he played from the ground instead of the stage, and luckily with the help of a security guard to shield his equipment from the wild, swaying mass. More pictures are below.
