If you're just joining us..... it went comedy, Bell, Takka Takka, and last, but not even close to least...John Vanderslice & violin player. Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) joined them for two unamplified songs on the floor in the crowd at the end (and then more DJ David Bruno with the perfectly timed, and JV-requested, dance party). Thanks to everyone who helped make our second Rock 'n' ROFL party a huge success. More pictures below.....

More photos of last night's Music Hall show @ Flickr. St Vincent & Foreign Born do it again tonight @ Bowery Ballroom. St. Vincent is also playing the Plug Awards. Watch the "Jesus Saves, I Spend" video below.....
There's the previously announced tour with Foreign Born that includes a February 29th Bowery Ballroom show (where she has played before), the Plug Awards at Terminal 5 (where she has played before) on March 6th, and now there's February 28th at Music Hall of Williamsburg too (where I don't think she has played yet).
David Cross @ The Plug Awards, 2007 (CRED)
David Cross and Patton Oswalt must still agree on at least one thing: hosting the Plug Awards ceremony is OK. I say that because, David Cross hosted them last year, and Patton Oswalt will be hosting them this year. They take place at Terminal 5 in NYC on March 6th. St Vincent is playing, and so is Jose Gonzalez. More TBA.
VOTE for the winners while you still can.
The Clean @ Other Music, NYC - Nov 26, 2007 (CRED)
Tinariwen @ Other Music, NYC - Nov 27, 2007 (CRED)
Did you want to catch Celebration at Other Music last week, but didn't? The Clean? Tinariwen? Will you not make it to Richard Hawley tonight? Well, now thanks to the magic of high-quality streaming video, you won't have missed anything. "Live at Other Music" kicks off with the October St. Vincent performance. Beautiful
Tickets are on sale for a St Vincent (now from NYC) and Foreign Born (from LA) show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on February 29th - it's part of a tour the two artists are going on together. St. Vincent's new video is up for a plug award. Her last NYC show was at Knitting Factory. She played at one of Muzzle of Bees' favorite concerts this year. More tour dates below...
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings backstage @ The Apollo (CRED/MORE)
They all have new videos. Tour dates & videos below....
A lot of bands played this show actually. More pics & coverage coming soon. Photo by Jefferson who told me St. Vincent put on the best show he's seen at all of CMJ so far (it happened at Knitting Factory - Oct 18, 2007).

It's not clear who is opening both of the National's Music Hall of Williamsburg shows, but St Vincent is definitely the opener at Terminal 5 - exactly one week before the Knitting Factory show. All tour dates below...
St. Vincent (MORE)
At first I thouht this might be a 'too many cooks in the kitchen' situation. Then I freaked out a little when I found out there was an RSVP, and that it wasn't working that well. Well, it ends up that the Hot Freaks ACL (unofficial) (Dell Lounge-sponsored) (blogger) afterparties that I got myself involved in, were not only completely fun and total successes, we were able to accomodate anyone that wanted to get in to the FREE shows - stupid wristbands or not. Thanks other bloggers.
The Rosebuds (MORE)
St. Vincent re-confirmed her extreme talent on Saturday night, and Sparrow House proved that though shy, he is also very talented. Grizzly Bear played an as-always beautiful set with added breathtaking pretty-colored-lights-against-rocks-with-added-outdoor visuals (courtesy of our video team from Super Alright!). Art Brut rocked for the 15th-millionth time, and The Rosebuds turned the Mohawak (or was it Club Deville - I couldn't keep track - the party was at both places, and they're next-door to each other) into a proper dance party. The most fun I had during my entire Austin City Limits 2007 experience was during the Rosebuds actually. Even with an injured knee, Ivan (with the help of Kelly and drummer) mananged to keep it going - always high-energy, and with plenty of audience participation. It was actually only the second time I saw them - the first was at Bowery Ballroom when I fell in love - and the next will be at Bowery again (thank you so much Rosebuds for agreeing to play the Austin show and the CMJ show!) (tickets are on sale). More links, and photos by Hot Freaks-cohost Frank of Chromewaves, below....
This September I'll be returning to Austin for my first-ever visit to the annual three-day Austin City Limits Festival (see previous post for talk of the lineup). While I'm there, I also hope to catch at least one episode-taping for the 33rd season of the associated PBS series with the same name (Austin City Limits). Arcade Fire, Crowded House, Wilco, Bloc Party, Regina Spektor, and Lucinda Williams will all be there to play the festival, and to tape a show.
Then there are the afterparties - official and unofficial. Official afterparties (or aftershows as they call them) feature many of the same bands playing the festival. They happen at night at one of the various venues around Austin - Stubb's, La Zona Rosa, The Parish, Emo's and Antone's to be exact. Anyone can buy tickets to the aftershows. They've got Spoon, The White Stripes (sold out), Common, Blonde Redhead, The National, etc..
I actually know very little about the unofficial afterparties, except that I helped put one together. It was a team effort between myself and the "Hot Freaks" otherwise known as an aquarium drunkard, la blogothèque, chromewaves, gorilla vs bear, my old kentucky blog, and you ain't no picasso. This group of 'Hot Freaks' worked together before - at SXSW. For ACL they asked if I felt like getting freaky, I said 'yes', and the rest is history.
Our parties take place at the Mohawk and at the adjoining Club Deville, on both Friday and Saturday after ACL. The shows are FREE (w/ some RSVP thing that's going to be available after Labor Day), and all of our artists are NOT also playing ACL. We have Art Brut, Grizzly Bear, St. Vincent, The Rosebuds, Yellow Fever, Sparrow House (Jared from Voxtrot), and more. More details below....
St. Vincent & John Vanderslice (CRED)
One Brooklyn alternative to the mob-scene that will be the Seaport tonight (Aug 17, 2007), is the free John Vanderslice show happening at Sound Fix Records. What will you do? What will Annie Clark do? Now that she lives here, she has the option of supporting her label & future tour-mates, or catching up with the man she just-recently got to know so well.
TONIGHT: The Forms, Takka Takka (now w/ new lineup) AND The National are playing a free show at South Street Seaport. Both label and seaport representatives confirm that the National ARE playing (in case u heard otherwise). (Takka Takka is at 6pm, The Forms are at 7pm and The National is on at 8pm.)
THIS MORNING: Tickets went on sale for The National's next NYC show at Terminal 5 - the new 3,000-capacity super-venue. NYC's own St. Vincent will be opening the large show. That's right - Annie has reportedly relocated from Texas to our fine city, and the Terminal 5 date is just one of many upcoming shows she'll be playing with her Beggars-family labelmates.
AUGUST 29: Doveman is back with a show at Joe's Pub (a venue he is very familiar with). That before a tour with - that's right - his friends and Brassland labelmates - The National. Brassland will release a brand new Doveman album called With My Left Hand I Raise the Dead on October 9th.
All tour dates, including some that The Rosebuds are also playing with the National, below....
