Night Birds join Lemuria & Parquet Courts in supporting Fucked Up at Warsaw on Friday (12/21, tickets), and as such we cornered Brian Gorsegner to ask about his 2012. The Night Birds frontman's journey through music in 2012 in handy list format is below.
Tenement definitely listen to their share of Husker Du and angular pop-punk, and you can catch their show on the road now as part of an East Coast tour.

Swearin' at SUNY Purchase - 9/9/12
After taking about a month-long break since their last show, Brooklyn's Swearin' kicked off a short September run of the NYC area and Philly at SUNY Purchase last night (9/9). The NYC shows on that run include one TONIGHT (9/10) at Mercury Lounge as a support act for the previously discussed Jaill and Fergus & Geronimo show with Home Blitz. Tickets for tonight's show are still available. They'll also play a TBA Brooklyn show on Wednesday (9/12) with Tenement, and will open for Chomp at their record release show at Cameo on September 21. Tickets for that show are on sale now. In November, Swearin' will head out as an opening act for Japandroids on their previously discussed tour, but their last scheduled date at the moment is the Asheville, NC show (12/2) which happens right before Japandroids play Webster Hall in NYC (12/4). No other opener for the Webster Hall show has been announced yet either. All Swearin' dates are listed below.
I caught Swearin' at SUNY Purchase last night and they put on a super fun show. Sometimes calmer sounding on record, the band never ceased to be punchy and in your face live. They play crunchy pop punk the way it's meant to be played and the crowd was into it the whole time. Their set relied primarily on their recently released self titled debut LP, but also reached back to 2011's What a Dump EP for some old faves like "Irrational." Allison Crutchfield had already cut her teeth for years in P.S. Eliot so she's got the experience and is fully able to be a totally confident frontwoman and charming performer.
Hop Along at SUNY Purchase - 9/9/12
At the Purchase show, Swearin' were opening for Philly's Hop Along, who are touring in support of their excellent new album, Get Disowned, which I recently wrote about on BV Austin. Both bands (and Laura Stevenson and the Cans, Shellshag, etc) have a notable amount of sonic compatibility, but while Swearin' are reliving the glory days of pop punk, Hop Along often recall the fuzz folk of Neutral Milk Hotel and The Microphones. Frontwoman Frances Quinlan is a powerhouse live, howling away at her intimate lyrics and also proving to be a pretty killer guitarist. She's backed by an equally impressive band -- Mark Quinlan (drums) and Tyler Long (bass) -- who play as a three-piece that sound as large and diverse as a six-piece. Highlights of the show came during "Get Disowned" and album standout "Tibetan Pop Stars," during which a mosh pit immediately broke out, knocking over Frances' mic stand within seconds and causing the band to restart the song. Luckily they were in good spirits about it and once the song did continue, the entire room could be heard shouting along to the song's chorus and explosive bridge. Hop Along's tour continues this week, hitting Bard College on Friday (9/14), and wrapping up in November. All of their dates are listed below.

Highly influential streetpunk band Sham 69 will reunite their 'classic' 1977-1979 lineup (or at least most of it) to play a pair of US shows including Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas and Chaos in Tejas Austin. The 1977-1979 lineup is:
Jimmy Pursey: vocalsThis lineup, also known as the Pursey/Parsons lineup (which may or may not have Mark Cain on drums this time around), is not to be confused with the version of the band led by Tim V (otherwise known as the Tim V lineup) (that's Tim V, Neil Harris, Ian Whitewood, Tony Feedback, and Al Campbell). The Tim V lineup operates out of Sham69.com, and both versions are currently playing live.
Dave Parsons: guitar
Dave Tregunna: bass
Mark Cain: drums
Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) joins names like Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Toys That Kill, and many more for Punk Rock Bowling 2012 in Las Vegas, NV on May 25-28, 2012. The fest also features pool parties, a bowling tournament, late-night club and much more in addition to the outdoor festival appearances. Tickets go on sale soon.
Rancid also have some anniversary shows coming up with Cock Sparrer.
Youth of Today are also playing the Black N Blue Bowl this year in NYC with many other hardcore bands incluiding The Mob who also play Chaos in Tejas this year (May 31-June 3).
Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons lineup) is one of many new additions to Chaos in Tejas which also added No Age, pygmylush, Screaming Females, Secret Prostitutes, Slug Guts (Australia), S U R V I V E, and Tenement. These additions are not to be confused with the set of bands that were announced earlier this week. Latest Chaos in Tejas lineup listed in full below.

Coke Bust at Acheron (more by BBG)
Coke Bust will return to NYC with Tenement, D.O.C. and Rational Animals to play Acheron on 1/4. The show is one of a few dates for the fast-hardcore crew. Chris of Coke Bust/Magrudergrind will also be playing drums with D.O.C. when they play Saturday (12/17) at Death By Audio with Triac, Backslider (who are streaming a new track), and Psychic Limb as part of Defeatist's farewell show. Defeatist's Tyranny of Decay was one of my favorite records of 2011, and the Coke Bust show at Acheron was also one of my favorites of the year.
Morbid Saint will hit the road for a pair of East Coast gigs that will include Europa on 1/20 with Deceased, Carcinogen and Midnight Hellion. Tickets are on sale.
