Brooklyn's The Defibulators released their debut album, Corn Money, back in 2009, and have played a ton of local shows since its release, and they're now set to release that album's followup, Debt'll Get'em, on August 27. The first single the band released from the new album, "Cackalacky!," is rollicking bluegrass with a bit of a folk punk edge, but the second, "Let Me See That Ponytail Run," is total sad country. Two very different sides of their sound, and they do them both really well. Check out those songs below.
The Defibulators have a bunch of upcoming shows this summer, including two hometown gisg this month on July 23 at Union Pool with Villalobos Brothers ($10 at the door) and July 25 for a cookout presented by Tasting Table at Elizabeth Street Garden (209 Elizabeth St). Tickets for the cookout are on sale now. Then, on the day of the album's release (8/27), the band will play a TBA Brooklyn show. Stay tuned for more info on that one.

Levon Helm at Summerstage, July 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
The great Levon Helm will be paid tribute on 11/19 at Hill Country (30 w26th St, Manhattan), when Catherine Popper (of Levon Helm/Jack White/Ryan Adams/Grace Potter's bands) will assemble Puss 'n Boots (which probably means Norah Jones) to lead a benefit at the venue. Levon's charity 'Keep It Going!' will be the receipient of the proceeds, a charity designed to keep Midnight Ramble, the studio and associated properties up and running. Joining Popper will be performances from Suzanna Choffel, Fredro Perry, The Cheating Hearts, and Bug & Bru (of The Defibulators). $20 gets you in.
This isn't the first time that a member of Grace Potter's band has been involved in a benefit; the frontwoman herself performed at a Levon Helm tribute show in early October.
Meanwhile check out pictures from the Austin show.
