Future of The Left at Saint Vitus, June 2012 (more by Caroline Harrison)
Folk punk duo Andrew Jackson Jihad have tapped Welsh greats Future of The Left to join them on a three-week jaunt across the US. Kicking off outside of Baltimore and terminating on the West Coast, look for AJJFOTL to swing through NYC for a date with Le Poisson Rouge on November 2. Ticket info is forthcoming.
Before AJJ hits the road for those FOTL shows, look for the band to play a string of dates with Against Me! and Joyce Manor (who recently played House of Vans and Acheron) on the West Coast. The days leading up to the FOTL tour will be spent at The Fest in Gainesville.
Speaking of The Fest, the massive Gainesville outing recently added another batch of bands, including Sainthood Reps, Fake Problems, Dwarves, Brian McGee, Hull, Paul Baribeau, Riverboat Gamblers, Let Me Run, Rivernecks, Tubers, The Criminals, Worlds Scariest Police Chases, Kepi Ghoulie and The Treats. Full lineup is below.
All tour dates are listed below, along with The Fest full lineup and a couple videos.

After 4 agile years as a band, P.S. Eliot is calling it a day. IThe October 28th show is this weekend in Florida. The December 4th show is sold out. The December 9th show is of course first come, first served.
sincerely feel that we've creatively accomplished everything we set
out to from the get-go and dragging it out would be brazen and
pointless. I considered P.S. Eliot "the band I always wanted to start"
but as I've grown and Allison has grown I've come to realize that
"band" has grown too. P.S. Eliot's time as a fulfilling outlet for us
has passed so we're ending it gracefully and moving on.
We'll be playing the Fest in Gainesville as well as 2 shows in December in Brooklyn. I'll be focusing most of my time and energy on my solo project, Waxahatchee, which has a record coming out in February on Salinas Records and will be touring the US and Europe. Allison is in the process of starting a new band as well. Endless thanks to all those who have encouraged us. The past 4 years have been monumental for Allison and I and it's all because of this band and your support.
Our last 4 shows:
Saturday, September 24th @ Death By Audio, Brooklyn
w/ Witches, RVIVR and Nude Beach
Friday, October 28th @ The Fest 10 (the Atlantic), Gainesville
w/ Senders, O Pioneers!!, Little League and many more
Sunday, December 4th @ the Bell House, Brooklyn
w/Latterman and Nude Beach
***LAST SHOW EVER***
Saturday, December 9th @ Death By Audio, Brooklyn
w/ The Two Funerals, Cat Vet and 1 more TBA
Stay tuned for more info on Waxahatchee. Peace Out to PS Eliot.
Lifetime at Webster Hall (more by Brian Woodward)
"We're sad to say that we're going to have to cancel, or as Tony so kindly put it, "bail," for Fest 10. Pete and his wife are expecting their second baby, and at their most recent doctor visit were told that this precocious creature is coming sooner than expected, which means that Pete understandably needs to stay put at home right now. Unfortunately, there are no guitarists (anywhere) good enough to replace him, even temporarily. We did, however, find a replacement band that's at least 75% as good."In their stead... Kid Dynamite has been added!
I am sure that Pete's newborn will be happy and healthy by the time that Lifetime return to NYC for a show at Europa on January 7th alongside "Special Guests TBA" and Iron Chic. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (10/18) at noon. Man, that TBA gets a ton of shows.
"Ted Leo is possibly the most charming person I've ever seen in real life. Hot Tub was amazing tonight." - pete cartwright
Screaming Females at BV SXSW 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Ted Leo was a special guest at Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen at Littlefield Monday (6/27). According to Nate Buchik, "Last night, Ted Leo said they were performing Tyranny of Distance in its entirety at the South Street Seaport on July 9." That would be appropriate since the classic album turned 10 years old on June 19, but note that we were also told that Ted said he was "PROBABLY" playing the album. We'll let you know if that changes to "definitely." Hot Tub continues every Monday at Littlefield with different special guest comedians and musicians each week.
Ted's free South Street Seaport show is now being opened by fellow New Jerseyans Screaming Females. They just finished up their tour with Against Me! and Lemuria and only have a few other scattered dates at the moment. One of those dates is The Fest 10 in Gainesville, Florida which Ted is also playing (and which is sold out).
Ted recently taped a series of solo performance videos in "Room 205" for Incase. Watch those, with all tour dates and other videos below...
Kylesa at Irving Plaza (more by Chris LaPutt)

Full tour dates for the trek are below, which include the previously announced date at Fun Fun Fun Fest as well as an appearance at The Fest 9 in Gainesville between Oct 29 - 31. Full The Fest 9 lineup is below. Tickets are on sale.

DOWNLOAD: Cloak/Dagger - "I Don't Need A" (MP3)
You know what separates a John Reis project from almost every other punk band out there? The man has soul. Richmond punks Cloak/Dagger understand the power of the groove and are back to prove it with a new album due this fall! Lost Art is due on 11/3 and the band has dropped of the first taste of the LP in the form of "I Don't Need A" available for download above! Preorder Lost Art at their label, Jade Tree.
Cloak/Dagger fit in the fold between punk and garage, and the band aims to prove it when they hit the autobahn (aka Europe, and specifically Germany) this week starting in Berlin. They currently only have one US tour date, at The Fest in Gainesville, FL with a plethora of killer punk bands such as Coalesce, Torche, Asshole Parade, Kylesa, Coliseum, Iron Lung, Light Yourself on Fire, Magrudergrind, Pulling Teeth, Trash Talk, and about 150 others! If you can't make it down to The Fest, no worries. Although Cloak/Dagger doesn't have any additional US dates currently scheduled, knowing their habits in the van, expect that to change soon. Tour flyer, full tour dates, and track listing is below....
