The Remains @ The Bell House - 6/7/13
The Remains

'60s Boston garage rockers The Remains came to NYC for a show at the Bell House on Friday (6/7) with '80s/'90s NYC garage rockers The A-Bones (who featured Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo and the owners of Norton Records). Both bands were introduced by Lenny Kaye of Patti Smith's band (who also just played). Pictures, including ones of the setlists (though The A-Bones replaced "Steady with Betty" with "Real True Love" on theirs) are in this post.

That hits NYC on September 20 at Webster Hall . Tickets go on AmEx presale at noon today with the regular on-sale happening Friday (5/31) at noon. Tour dates are below.

Bloodshot Bill (right) w/ King Khan at The Bell House (more by Keith Marlowe)
Bloodshot Bill

Tandoori Knights member, King Khan & BBQ/Mark Sultan collaborator, and solo artist in his own right, Bloodshot Bill has been on the road all summer, and will join forces with Daddy Long Legs and T.Valentine for a show at Union Pool on Saturday (8/18), a Norton Records event. The show is Bloodshot Bill's third round through the area this year, having logged appearances with the Gories at Maxwell's in January and at the Psychobilly Luau. Stop by the merch table to scoop up copies of his new 10" The Out of This World Sounds of Bloodshot Bill, new 7" "Out The Door," a new split with Slim Sandy, and a comp called This Stuff'll Kill Ya featuring a contribution from Bloodshot Bill.

As mentioned, the show will also feature an appearance from Chicago's T.Valentine, who is clearly breaking old habits by appearing in NYC again this year (Lakeside Lounge and a show at the Friars Club back in April were part of his first NYC outing) after avoiding it for the previous 79 years! But the plot thickens... T.Valentine has ALREADY planned even another show in NY, this time set to support The Remains and The Stompin' Riff Raffs at The Bell House on November 3rd (tickets). Let's not diminish the appearance of The Remains though, who havent played NYC in a very long time.

All Bloodshot Bill tour dates are listed, along with the Union Pool flyer and videos, below...

Dr. Ike

"Before Kansas City was recorded by everyone from the Beatles to Peggy Lee, the song was first released in 1952 as K.C. Loving by an obscure Houston pianist named Little Willie Littlefield.

The single became a regional hit in the Los Angeles area, where Littlefield was recording for Federal Records, but it would be up to Wilbert Harrison, Trini Lopez, James Brown and Hank Ballard to turn Kansas City into a top 25 hit on the national pop and R&B charts. Littlefield remained a fascinating, mysterious footnote to pop-music history.

The annual Ponderosa Stomp festival in New Orleans exists to bring such footnotes to life. This showcase for the semi-legends of rockabilly, blues and R&B was founded eight years ago by Ira Padnos, a local anesthesiologist and record collector who goes by the moniker of Dr. Ike and favors thrift-shop fezzes and Indian headdresses atop his unruly bush of dark curls. His extravaganza has grown from a local bar to this year's two-night stand at the French Quarter's House of Blues, with 37 sets spread out over two stages.

And so, on Tuesday, the first day of the eighth-annual Ponderosa Stomp, there was the 77-year-old Littlefield, dressed in a dark-blue brocade blazer and grinning with delight beneath his comb-over." [Jazz News]

The Stomp is coming to Lincoln Center in July. More pictures from Day One of this year's New Orleans fest, Howard Tate (who has a NYC date of his own coming up) included, below...
