Adam Green & Binki Shapiro
As discussed, founding Moldy Peaches member Adam Green is releasing a collaborative album with Little Joy singer Binki Shapiro this January and the duo are playing some shows before then, including one in NYC on November 5 at Le Poisson Rouge with Computer Magic. Tickets for that show are still available. Adam and Binki have added some other shows happening around the same time, most of which are over in Europe except for another NYC area gig which happens on Friday (11/2) at Maxwell's. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
In related news, fellow founding Moldy Peaches member Kimya Dawson has a few shows coming too, including one at Brooklyn's Europa on December 2 with Rob Sonic and Sir Jarlesburg (tickets), and the next day she'll be the special guest at "A John Waters Christmas" at Tarrytown Music Hall (12/3) (tickets).
Lists of all Adam Green & Binki Shapiro and Kimya Dawson dates, and a song stream from Adam & Binki's album are below.

Moldy Peaches reunion @ Knitting Factory (photo by austinmccutchen)
Kimya Dawson just visited the NYC-area to play shows at Maxwell's (Saturday after the Sonics) and Knitting Factory (Sunday) AND to play a surprise reunion show with the Moldy Peaches! As the audience that included Regina Spektor, at least one member of the Strokes and Macaulay Culkin watched, Adam Green and the rest of the gang joined Kimya on stage after her set Sunday for at least the eight songs which you can watch below...

As promised Adam Green showed up to sing a tune with Dufus (Seth Faergolzia and band) at Cake Shop on Saturday night, but he wasn't alone. Fellow Moldy Peach Jack Dishel also sang, and so did two other members of the defunct anti-folk band: Brent Cole and Toby Goodshank, who both also play in one of the opening bands, Berth Control. Kimya Dawson, who now spends most of her time on the other coast, was not in the house, but Regina Spektor was and she also sang a song as you can see in the pictures (it was two nights before she headlined a benefit for Daniel Cho at MHOW).
Olice Juice Music points out:
"3/4 of the way through the Dufus show [Saturday] night the fire alarm at Cakeshop got tripped (rumor has it due to some suspect smoke inhalating). Everyone had to evacuate the building while the fire department came and reset the alarm. But this could not stop the show! The band took it to the streets and proceeded to perform it's appropriately entitled song Fireman. Luckily, it was just a brief intermission for this, truly epic, nearly 3 hour last Dufus performance."You can see the street scene in the pictures too, and luckily someone grabbed the fireman incident on video, real fireman pulling up included. You can watch it, with two other videos and more pictures from the show, below...
The Bundles are fronted by the anti-folk dream-team of Jeffrey Lewis and Kimya Dawson, and include drummer Anders Griffen, Jack Lewis (Jeff's brother and band-mate) and K Recs' Karl Blau. Their debut self-titled record came out on K Records in April.
Also on the Cake Shop bill are the controversially-named Sidewalk Cafe staples Ching Chong Song and Only Son (ex-Moldy Peaches guitarist Jack Dishel), as well as a mysterious "Secret Guest". Who could that be? Well, two members of the Moldy Peaches are listed on the bill already, Kimya headlining would sort of be a bigger deal than her new band, Moldy Peach Adam Green is sort of big (he just did two nights at Bowery), so my guesses are:
1) Moldy Peaches (seems unlikely though right?)My last guess, Regina Spektor, also got her start at places like Sidewalk Cafe and has toured with Only Son more than once. I have no idea really. What do you think?... UPDATE:
2) Kimya Dawson (but why be secret when you're already on the bill?)
3) Adam Green (bigger, but does he need to be a secret?)
4) Beck (just kidding)
5) Regina Spektor
hey guys, andy cakeshop here...just so theres no confusion, its not adam green.. i was throwing the idea around with his management, but it was really just an idea. the bills really strong on its own, and i should really take off the 'secret guest' thing, its been a weird week and sorry it got to this level. jeff and kimya need to play at 8 to make it to a prior commitment...anyway we're working on something cool for the 11pm, but as of yet, truthfully, its not booked! sorry for the mixup &"SECRET GUEST!" has now in fact been replaced with "TBA". It was fun while it lasted.
The Bundles tour the UK and Europe later in May. Those dates and videos are below...
Moldy Peaches @ Central Park Summerstage, 2002 (m. norr)
Tickets are STILL on sale for tonight's Kimya Dawson show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (July 2, 2008). It's a benefit with a bunch of bands on the bill that only costs $20, and for what it's worth, it's in a smaller venue than her last and next NYC shows *.
Has the Juno buzz worn off a little? It should be strong now that there's all this pregnancy talk that has "the Most Successful Indie Film in Six Years" back in the news. Maybe parents are afraid to let their kids near Kimya....
With a lot of attention on teen pregnancy these days, parents can use the news to talk about sex and pregnancy with their children. Here are some tips from experts.Juno is the new Judas Priest. Okay, I made the last tip up (not the one before it though), but young girls across the world are apparently watching Juno and getting Knocked Up like crazy... or are they?
- Have age-appropriate discussions about sex. Answer their questions openly and honestly.
- Talk about teen pregnancy. Ask your kids what they thinks about "Juno" and Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy, says Bill Albert, spokesman for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy....
- Throw away your kids' Moldy Peaches albums...
Juno" actor Jason Bateman has defended the Oscar-winning movie against claims it has encouraged teenage girls to get pregnant.Adam Green and Ozzy Osbourne could not be reached for comment...
He tells "Access Hollywood," "I don't know the specifics, but I can speak about what sort of responsibility entertainment should hold for social behavior.
"Unfortunately, we've had these instances where guys kill people because of what they hear in rock 'n roll lyrics or some garbage like that. Look, if you're going to blame a movie or song for your actions, whether they be good or bad, I think you're looking at the wrong things to influence your life.
"What we're doing is providing entertainment in different flavors for your consumption. I think people should look to other areas of their life for lessons and guidance, mainly parents, or teachers, or friends, or whomever. That should probably be where you should point your eyes and ears." [SFGate]
Kimya Dawson is also playing her own (benefit) show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in July, and Adam Green is playing a kind-of-unadvertised show this Friday in Sunset Park. All dates below.....

That Kimya post reminded me....
The Moldy Peaches are one of the unlikeliest success stories in indie rock: they went from being a minor novelty act to being essentially broken up to rocking Barbara Walters on The View with a song from the soundtrack to Juno. They've allowed that song, "Anyone Else But You," to be re-written for an ad for the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. The new version features lyrics like "Let's go ride a couple of dolphins/Or maybe play tennis/Or do some golfing." It's a strange marriage, as the Peaches never seemed like the types to shill at this level, while Atlantis associates themselves with a band who once had a minor hit with a song called "Who's Got the Crack."

Adam Green @ Town Hall, NYC - May 10, 2008
Adam Green, the beloved New York singer-songwriter with the deep baritone voice and quirky sense of humor, played his largest headlining show to date last Saturday at Town Hall. When he said on The View that he was playing there, I thought it was the perfect setting for him and it was about time. He may come off as this jokey musician with nonsensical lyrics to Joe Public, but from following his solo career, I knew he takes his music seriously. So, Town Hall suits him fine. [Music Snobbery]Tim Fite and Laura Marling opened the show on Saturday.
positively avenue bThe Juno soundtrack is probably the main reason Adam can play a venue as large as Town Hall now (and why he was on The View) (and why Kimya Dawson is suddenly headlining Webster Hall).

Please check local listings for time and channel identification, and of course, please tune in!I'm not sure how I feel about that, and I don't mean because of the writers. It's just...The View?!? Kimya and Adam were supposed to do it on Conan, but pulled out when they realized there was still a strike.
In other news, Kimya scheduled another show @ Sound Fix....
This show is for all of the people outside on Tuesday night who couldn't get in and signed the list that was floating around. Anyone on the list must show up before 7pm. We'll open the doors to anyone not on the list at 7.
