LA punks No Age are on the East Coast this weekend, as part of a traveling concert/art exhibit titled Generationalpictomusicapolis that also features performances by Portland/LA psych folk band Sun Foot (featuring members of Smog, Swell, and Jackie-O Motherfucker) and Devin Gary & Ross, the trio featuring Pee Wee's Playhouse artist Gary Panter as well as animator Devin Flynn, and photographer/sign painter Ross Goldstein. It hits NYC on Friday (7/17) at Surf Pavilion in Coney Island and tickets are on sale. Here's a little more about it:
A celebration of collaborative music and art making, this one night concert and pop-up exhibition features experimental punk from No Age (Randy Randall and Dean Spunt), the barely amplified feel-good vibes of Sun Foot (Ron Burns, Chris Johanson, Brian Mumford) and the ramshackle psych-folk of Devin Gary & Ross (Devin Flynn, Gary Panter, Ross Goldstein. Limited-edition, collaboratively made artworks created by each band member are exhibited at the show, and are available for purchase. These unique prints utilize the creative vision of each individual musician/artist as well as the whole of the group, and feature paint, photography, silk screens, spray paint and more.Generationalpictomusicapolis is in Toronto tonight (7/16) and Philadelphia's PhilaMoca on Saturday (7/18). Sounds pretty cool.

Currently residing here in Brooklyn (where he's working on an album with Jen Turner), frontman Ryan Jarman was nice enough to give us his Top 10 Tracks of the year. He prefaces his list with this:
I tend to see end of year lists as like homework or something so it always gets done at the very last minute. However, now I live in Brooklyn I thought it was good form to make the effort for the local rag so here is my quickly thrown together top 10 tracks of the year.Ryan and Jen's band, Exclamation Pony were added as an opener to the previously discussed Mission of Burma show in NYC on January 18 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are still available.
Ryan's top 10 picks are below, complete with commentary and streams...
