Now, we at BrooklynVegan are proud to announce that we're teaming up with PopGun to present a holiday show that The Front Bottoms will headline in NYC. It happens at the intimate Shea Stadium on December 28, a day after their bigger show at Bowery Ballroom.

Tickets for the show go on sale today (10/23) at 10 AM.
The Front Bottoms' newest album, Talon of the Hawk, came out earlier this year via Bar None. It's a fun, catchy, and very lyrical album that's folky, poppy, and punky without really being folk, pop or punk. If you haven't heard it you can stream it in full, along with the updated list of tour dates, below...
The Front Bottoms at Made In America 2013 (via Ryan Soroka)
Folky NJ pop punks The Front Bottoms were just in Philly over the weekend for Made In America and played a hometown show at The Stone Pony right before that. They're set to tour as an opener for Manchester Orchestra this fall, which brings them to NYC on November 13 for a sold-out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and they've now finally added a headlining NYC date to their schedule. They'll play Bowery Ballroom on December 27 with The Bynars. Tickets for that show go on sale today (9/4) at noon.

Cloud Nothings at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
As discussed, the Jay Z-curated Budweiser Made In America Festival is returning this weekend to Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway (8/31-9/1), and the mostly pop/rap/R&B festival just got a little more, um... punk. Aside from the fact that it already included The Gaslight Anthem (who are pretty much a festival regular by now anyway), the lineup now includes Cloud Nothings, Restorations, Balance & Composure, The Front Bottoms, Diarrhea Planet, PUJOL, and more. And you thought it was weird when Jay Z saw Grizzly Bear.
UPDATE: And one more: Wavves was added to the TBA slot on Sunday.
Other non-punk additions that have happened since we last spoke include Rudimental and The Underachievers. The full schedule was also recently announced, and you can check that out below.
Many of the artists playing Made In America also have NYC or NJ shows this weekend (or soon after), including The Front Bottoms, Diarrhea Planet, Rudimental, The Underachievers, Kendrick, Ab Soul & Jay Rock, AlunaGeorge, Haim, and 2 Chainz.

The Front Bottoms on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series
NJ folky pop punks The Front Bottoms have seemingly not left the road since the release of their catchy, lyrical new album Talon of the Hawk, and they've just announced another set of US dates for this fall.

Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday, August 29 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Monday (8/26) at 10 AM.
The Front Bottoms also play a headlining hometown show this month at The Stone Pony on August 30 (tickets).

DOWNLOAD: The Front Bottoms - "Skeleton" (MP3)
The Front Bottoms at Mercury Lounge in 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
As mentioned, New Jersey's The Front Bottoms are releasing their new nasally folk punk record, Talon of the Hawk, on May 21 via Bar None Records. You've already heard the first single, "Twin Size Mattress," and the duo are now unleashing another track from the album, "Skeleton." This song's one of the more power pop cuts from the album, and like the last single, it's biggest strengths are in the conversational lyrics. "I got so stoned, I fell asleep in the front seat. I never sleep in the front seat -- I'm too tall, but I got so stoned," Brian Sella sings in the song's pre-chorus. It sounds more like a next-morning story than a summer anthem, but effectively works as both. You can download that track above, or stream it below.
As discussed, the band will be supporting the new album on a tour which hits the NYC area for a now-sold-out show on June 1 at Maxwell's. Since we last spoke, the band added another date happening at the same venue a day earlier (5/31), but that one is sold out too. They also open for Bad Books at Webster Hall on July 12, and you can still get tickets to that one.
Updated dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...

The Front Bottoms at Mercury Lounge in 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
New Jersey folk punk band The Front Bottoms released their self titled debut LP back in 2011 and they're set to release its followup, The Talon of the Hawk, on May 21 via Bar None Records. On the album's first single, "Twin Size Mattress," you'll hear traces of John K. Samson, Hutch Harris, and John Darnielle in frontman Brian Sella's nasally wordy delivery, which of course doesn't make them the most groundbreaking band, but the familiarity is also exciting. And like those singers, Brian's lyrics make for some pretty good facebook statuses and things to drunkenly yell along with your friends at parties, like "I begged you to stay, you said 'Hey man I love you, but NO FUCKIN' WAY!'" Check out the video for that song below.
The band will be supporting the new album with a US tour that kicks off in their home state on June 1 at Maxwell's with support from Weatherbox. Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday (4/4) at noon. After making their way around the country, they'll return to the NYC area for a show on July 12 at Webster Hall opening for Bad Books (the project of Andy Hull and Kevin Devine, who have covered The Front Bottoms). Tickets for the Webster Hall show are on sale now.

Princeton played mostly new songs at Mercury Lounge last night (2/24), their first of three NYC shows this weekend. Before the show they had a very non-vegan meal next door at Katz's Deli with Chris La Putt who photographed them there and at the show. All of those pictures, including one of their setlist, are in this post.
NJ's The Front Bottoms, who had to cut their set a bit short due to a broken guitar string, opened the gig. You can also catch them Saturday night in Manville with Titus Andronicus and at other upcoming NJ shows which are listed at their MySpace.
Porcelain Raft (and Aislyn) played the late show in the same venue last night. Chris didn't stay for it though, so maybe he'll catch 'em tonight (2/25) at Glasslands.
Princeton's next shows are at Cameo tonight (2/25) and at Union Hall on Saturday (2/26), both with Bell and Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone. Takka Takka also plays the show tonight. More pictures and a video from Mercury Lounge (and of pastrami...), below...
