"I have an upcoming full-length "Little Hells" which is a significant record for me in many ways." [Marissa Nadler]TK Webb, Marissa Nadler, The Muslims and Dungen were scheduled to play the Kemado Records showase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night before midnight (10/24). Children and Cheeseburger were going on after. Zach was going to stay to see Dungen (he had somewhere else to be late), but they were running late so he only caught the first three bands. It was the only show Marissa played during CMJ (I was sad to miss it) and it was one of many for the Muslims (though they cancelled at least one - the Narnack showcase at Santos that was the next night). More pictures from Music Hall below...

TK Webb & the Visions
by Black Bubblegum
Swede mages Witchcraft have a handful of planned dates trickling out, including a show at Bowery Ballroom on September 17th with compatriots (in nationality and inspiration) Graveyard and Brooklyn's own TK Webb & The Visions. Tickets go on sale August 1st at noon. Peep the list of dates so far, down below.
Witchcraft is also on board for Lollapalooza 2008 - the only band playing Lolla AND the dying Ozzfest in the same week. Unfortunately, like Radiohead and Rage Against The Machine, Witchcraft's performance won't be viewable from the live stream. Wilco, Broken Social Scene, The National, The Raconteurs, Stephen Malkmus, and many others will be though.
Witchcraft will also be intersecting with a Witch (minus the -craft) tour in LA with Ancestors. Starting September 19th, Graveyard is touring with The Sword and Clutch.
Ancestors have a new album on the way, Neptune With Fire, due on August 19th on Tee Pee. Ancestor, the new album by TK Webb & The Visions, is due September 2nd on Kemado. Dates below...

The Weight Are Men. I can't/won't literally vouch for that (no offense dudes), but I know that The Weight will drop an album of that name on August 5th via The Colonel Records, their first album and their first since playing our SXSW party in March. The classic rock/country-tinged "A Day In The Sun" (download above) is pretty representative of Are Men.
King Tuff is an offshoot of the mighty Witch (and Feathers for that matter), sharing member/frontman Kyle Thomas betwixt them. Whereas Witch is all Sabbath-ian brawn, the King Tuff song "Sun Medallion" takes its roots in lo-fi garage rock (from Was Dead, due in the "late summer/early fall").
TK Webb & The Visions is TK Webb (duh), with The Visions being comprised of past/present members of Love Is Laughter and a current member of The Comas & Blood On The Wall (Brian Hale & Nic Gonzales). The upcoming Ancestor (Kemado, Sept 2nd) retains alot of the blues of Phantom Parade, but heads in a heavier rock direction ("Teen Is Still Shaking" is above).
Tournament is one of those hardcore/punk bands that seems to be on every punk/heavy music bill in NYC. Their newest EP, the eclectic Swordswallower, is available for download (IN FULL) for the meager price of nada at their myspace. (TOTALLY worth it)
So.... what the hell do these bands have in common? They are all playing the inaugural Freedom Fest NYC this July 4th-6th!
To set it off right, here's how the press release ends:
Things to expect:I hope so. With hopes on high, lets check out the rest of it:
Total Fucking Mayhem.

You've heard the tale before - songwriter leaves his hometown to make a name in the Big Apple with a few songs and a dream. TK Webb left Kansas City to perform his brand of gritty country-folk wrapped in a dusty, blues veneer with just a guitar, harmonica, and a suitcase to kick a beat to. Since then, he has established himself in the city. He even now has a backing band called The Visions behind him - adding layers to his homespun tales of woe.
There's a timeless quality to the music, no doubt a byproduct of mixing genres, covering every decade from 1940 to 1980. And though he is certainly not the first artist to make this type of music, Webb's identity comes through, making it undeniably his. TK Webb just released an album called Phantom Parade on The Social Registry (home to Blood on the Wall and Gang Gang Dance), and that's whose official showcase TK Webb already played. If you missed it, they have another show on October 20th @ Galapagos in Brooklyn with Stars Like Fleas and Bear In Heaven, and if you miss that too - you can always catch them on tour with The Wallflowers. They play Highline Ballroom together on October 22nd. All tour dates below....
