Diarrhea Planet at Tomorrow Never Knows 2014 (more by Sara Pieper)
Diarrhea Planet

We mentioned back in December that two Nashville bands, Those Darlins and Diarrhea Planet, were planning to tour together this year. The dates have since been announced in full, and that tour kicks off this weekend, bringing the two bands to NYC on Sunday (2/16) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Desert Sharks. Tickets for that show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win, along with the updated list of dates, below.

We just caught Diarrhea Planet in Chicago with Yuck and Pink Frost during Tomorrow Never Knows. You can check out more pics from that (like the one above) at BV Chicago. After the tour with Those Darlins, DP have a few festival appearances lined up, including Alabama's Hangout Fest and a return to NYC for Governors Ball in June.

Those Darlins, who also play Savannah Stopover and SXSW, recently released a new track from the sessions of their 2013 LP, Blur the Line, titled "Why Can't I." You can stream that song below, along with a recent video of the band playing "That Man" for Nashville Cream's "Live in the Morgue" series.

All dates are listed, along with streams and contest details, below...

Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Desaparecidos @ Voodoo Fest Day 1 - 11/1/13
Voodoo Day 1
Voodoo Day 1
Soundwave

"The Friday Voodoo line-ups are usually pretty slow, so I came into City Park expecting to have a lot of downtime (which ended up being a good thing because for some reason Voodoo never deems it necessary to label anything, so every stage is always unmarked).... I had some time to kill before the night truly began, so I marveled at all of the extraordinary costumes festival goers brought to the park (Walter White was an obvious favorite).

The night began with Desaparecidos. I'm a huge fan of post-hardcore--I love Fugazi, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, you name it, I probably at least like it. I've also been to (probably more than) my fair share of post-hardcore shows (getting stuck in an Against Me! mosh pit is arguably the punkest thing I've ever done), so when I say that Desaparecidos's Voodoo performance was the best post-hardcore show I've ever seen, it definitely means something. Conor Oberst definitely brought his best cynical self to the show, spouting political statements and really getting into the music with major head banging." [The Daily Reveille]

Other sets on Voodoo day 1 included Anamanaguchi, Those Darlins and New Orleans's own Preservation Hall Jazz Band, all three of which also had over to our Soundwave stage hosted by the funny Dave Hill and Billy Jones (Soundwave schedule HERE).

The day's big headliner was Pearl Jam, who recently played two big shows at Barclays Center, and whose...

headlining set [at Voodoo] started emotionally when guitarist Mike McCready introduced Steve Gleason, the Washington state native who settled in New Orleans after his days with the New Orleans Saints ended. Stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, the wheelchair-bound Gleason rolled to declare, in his computer-generated voice, "This is my hometown; this is my hometown band." Gleason's presence lingered throughout the show as McCready wore a Team Gleason T-shirt and Eddie Vedder, a wristband. Vedder later dedicated the show and 2006's "Inside Job" to Gleason and his family, and announced that the band let Gleason write the set list -- which led to the inclusion of a quiet "Chloe Dancer" alongside a number of songs from the new Lightning Bolt. [SPIN]
Pearl Jam's full setlist and pictures from the whole day, costumed attendees included, are in this post. Pictures from Day 2 are HERE. More Day 1 below....

Dave Hill & Billy Jones will reunite in New Orleans (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Soundwave

Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and The Cure co-headline the Voodoo festival in New Orleans this weekend. Anamanaguchi, Those Darlins, The Gaslight Anthem, F. Stokes, Matt & Kim, Cults, Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra and many more will also play sets as part of the New Orleans-music heavy, but eclectic 3-day lineup. Check out the full festival schedule.

This is also the 5th and final festival of 2013 that you'll find a Toyota Soundwave tent where BrooklynVegan, SPIN and Purevolume will be set up all weekend with host Dave Hill, BrooklynVegan co-host Billy Jones, and a full schedule of additional live interviews and sets that you won't find on the festival's main schedule.

Stop by today/Friday to catch a live interview with Anamanaguchi at 2:30 and one with Preservation Hall Jazz Band at 4:00, right before a live set by Those Darlins. Saturday Cults play a set at 1pm before rapper F. Stokes takes our stage. Sunday we get a set by Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra shortly after their earlier bigger stage show.

When festival artists aren't playing or talking to us, Dave Hill and Billy Jones will be telling jokes and spinning tunes. Please stop by and heckle them, and check out our full Soundwave schedule below...

Those Darlins

Tennesse's Those Darlins started off making '70s Loretta Lynn style country but quickly grew beyond those constraints. 2011's Screws Get Loose added sneery riff rock to the twang, which continues on the band's third album, Blur The Line, which is out October 1. "In the Wilderness" adds a little glitter to the mix, making for sleek, snarly rock. The wild ones of the first album are still in control though, as the chorus (and title) reminds. We've got the premiere of that track in this post and you can stream it below.

Those Darlins will hit the road right after the album comes out, which includes two NYC shows: Union Pool on October 12 (tickets) and Mercury Lounge on October 14 (tickets). Both shows are with Gambles.

All tour dates are listed, along with the track stream and LP cover art, below.

"I'm summoning all my party powers from above and below to channel them into your soul... Have the PARTIEST HALLOWEEN EVER!" - Andrew WK

Happy Halloween
--

Let's just forget (not really) about this hurricane thing for one second, and try to remember that today is also Halloween! What are you going to be? What were you for Hallowmeme? Need instructions on dressing as a Canadian Indie Musician? Are you dressing up your baby? And are you going to one of the limited NYC events still happening? Or will you just save your costume and hopefully wear it to the belated Halloween Parade that might happen next week.

As you can see in the photo above, BV photographer Chris La Putt (not actually him) found his costume and is going to be Instagram for Halloween (actually, he's stranded without phone, internet or power in Jersey City).

Speaking of BV photoraphers, we just found out that we posted a picture of Jezebel writer Jenna Sauers in her Halloween costume in 2009 (and drunkenly ate falafel near her at 4am).

One CT resident got a Halloween-themed surprise when Sandy uncovered a human skeleton under a down tree. They think it was put there hundreds of years ago when the area was a burial ground.

Of course not everyone is having an unhappy holiday. And many are still dressing up, like Miley Cyrus who is doing Nicki Minaj.

Dum Dum Girls dressed up as nuns and brought out the Dum Dum Boys, last night.

LA band Deap Vally who are currently in Europe on tour with the Vaccines, show off their costumes....

Lil B made a free Halloween mixtape which you can grab.

The Black Lips made a Halloween mixtape too. Stream below.

To quote the YouTube description, "Just in time for Halloween (and Hurricane Sandy, for that matter) "Tears" is a short film by David Altobelli and Jeff Desom, with a score pulled from HEALTH's original soundtrack to 'Max Payne 3' from Rockstar Games." Watch below.

RL Grime released a free Halloween mix too. Listen below.

Those Darlins at Glasslands, 10/26/2012
Those Darlins

In contrast to Those Darlins last NYC show with Best Coast at Terminal 5, the band's appearance at the intimate Glasslands on Friday (10/26) was downright cozy. The show, pictured in this post, was part of a string of dates with Heavy Cream that will wrap up mid-November. Remaining dates are listed below.

Those Darlins have some new material to showcase on the road as well, including a digital single and new tour-only split with tourmates Heavy Cream. Hopefully you picked up the 7", which features Heavy Cream's "Prison Shanks," produced by Ty Segall.

More pictures from Glasslands below.

"Thanks to all who came to terminal 5 tonight! We love you NY!" - Best Coast

Best Coast at Terminal 5 - 7/17/12
Best Coast

"There's something about the summer," Bethany Cosentino sang onstage at Manhattan's cavernous Terminal 5 last night, dressed for a far more dour season in a black tank top and black pants... against a black backdrop depicting the cover of Best Coast's new album, The Only Place. But if the drenching humidity wasn't nudging her into a sunny spirit, the arena-level screeches from the sold-out crowd were putting her in a giddy New York state of mind. "This is so awesome, there are so many of you!" she exclaimed before the SPIN cover stars' encore performance of Fleetwood Mac's "Storms." "Not to get all cheesy, but I remember our first ever show in New York was me and Bobb at the Cake Shop with a drum machine." [SPIN]
Best Coast brought their tour with Those Darlins to NYC last night (7/17) for a show at Terminal 5 with DIIV. Like they've been doing on the rest of the tour, Best Coast played material off both full lengths. You can watch videos of the band playing "Boyfriend," "Crazy For You," and "Up All NIght" at last night's show below.

For DIIV, the Terminal 5 show was one of many local shows the Brooklyn band has been playing this summer. Their next scheduled show (at the moment) is a free River Rocks show with Grimes and Wild Nothing on August 9 at Pier 84.

More pictures and videos from the Terminal 5 show are below...

Diiv

In addition to the free River Rocks show with Grimes on August 9, the dates with Best Coast that include Terminal 5 on July 17 (tickets), and the freshly announced 285 Kent show with Cloud Nothings (tickets), DIIV have added yet another NYC show this week.

DIIV play at The Hester (835 6th Ave in Manhattan) at 7PM this Thursday (7/12), just a few short hours before heading to 285 Kent to finish out the evening with Cloud Nothings. The Hester show is free and features free food/drink, but an email to RSVP@HESTERSTREETFAIR.com is required. The flyer for the event and all DIIV dates are below.

Speaking of that Best Coast Terminal 5 show, also on the bill are Those Darlins. The Nashville-based band recently released a new 7" that includes a cover of Rockpile's "Pet You And Hold You" which you can stream below. Do you want a copy of that 7" and a pair of tickets to the T5 show? Head below for details on how to win them both in a prize pack, courtesy of the band!

Old 97's

Too Far To Care was a magical moment for the 97's. Starry-eyed and flush with confidence thanks to our brand-new deal with Elektra, we felt no fear, just giddy excitement. An adventurous producer and a world champion A&R guy shepherded us through the recording process. And when it was all over, we had captured our little bit of lightning in a bottle. I love Too Far To Care and can't wait to play it in its entirety across the USA. - Rhett Miller
It's the 15th anniversary of what is generally regarded as the finest work by Old 97's and, like so many longtime musicians these days, the band are celebrating by dusting off the record and taking it out on tour, playing it front-to-back. One of the tour's stops is in NYC at Webster Hall on October 23 with Salim Nourallah and an opening acoustic set by Old '97s frontman Rhett Miller. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/29) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning today (6/27) at noon.

In addition to the tour, Too Far to Care, is getting the deluxe reissue treatment this fall, including its first-ever vinyl pressing. Tour poster, plus all Old 97's tour dates are listed below.

Jeff tweet

Get well soon, Jake! This only affects four dates of their tour with Best Coast -- Those Darlins begin as openers starting June 26, which includes the 7/17 show at Terminal 5 -- but it will unfortunately mean JEFF's appearance at Choas in Tejas this is a no-go.

The rest of JEFF's June tour dates are still on, including their June 17 show at Bowery Ballroom (tickets are still available) and June 18 show at Maxwell's (tickets). All unaffected tour dates are below.

In happier news, JEFF the Brotherhood just released their new EP, Hypnotic Knights, which is the first release through their new deal with Warner Brothers (a phrase that still seems a little unbelievable). The four songs are all from the band's third album, similarly titled Hypnotic Nights, which is out in July on Warner Brothers via Jake and Jamin's Infinity Cat label. The fidelity is a little higher (Black Keys' Dan Auerbach produced), but this is still the JEFF we know and love. You can stream the Hypnotic Knights EP below.

Best Coast at LPR (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Best Coast

Best Coast have announced a big tour in support of their new LP The Only Place, due on 5/15 via Mexican Summer. Check out the tracklisting/art for The Only Place below.

The tour, part of which is with Jeff The Brotherhood (who recently played Terminal 5), and part of which is with Those Darlins (who recently lost a member), kicks off in LA in May and hits NYC at Terminal 5 on July 17th (with Those Darlins who they also played that Planned Parenthood event with at Le Poisson Rouge). Tickets for the NYC show go on AMEX presale Wednesday (3/7) at noon, and regular sale on Friday.

The NYC stop falls toward the end of fashion mogul Beth Consentino's trek, and is also one of TWO stops they'll make to the NYC area this summer, the first being... supporting Metallica in Atlantic City. All dates are listed below.

Those Darlins dont have a new record but do have a new EP on the way, AND they will join on for a covers LP of the Repo Man soundtrack(!)

If you have ever seen Nikki or Linwood's VHS collections, you know that their copies of Repo Man are well worn. Hell, we are pretty sure that Nikki's not driving might have something to do with Miller's philosophizing.

So, it is very cool that we can now announce that Those Darlins have recorded a cover of the Iggy Pop title track for an upcoming tribute album on American Laundromat Records.

Look for covers by Mike Watt, Matthew Sweet, Black Francis, Weekend and more to round out the rest of the LP, and look for it on 9/8 via American Laundromat.

All tour dates, SXSW included, and the new BC album cover, below...

Kelley Anderson w/ Those Darlins @ LPR (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Those Darlins

The band released the following statement today:

Friends,

As a group, and individually, we are thankful for you, our fans and supporters, for your unwavering support over the years.

With sadness, we must announce that Kelley Anderson has decided to leave "Those Darlins" in order to pursue other musical projects and professional ventures. We will miss Kelley but will follow her with excitement at her new website: KelleyAnderson.org. Kelley promises to keep us updated on the Tenth Anniversary of The Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp in Murfreesboro this summer. It was Kelley's hard work and dedication to the Southern Girls Rock And Roll Camp that brought us together in the first place.

Those Darlins will continue to move forward with a lot of exciting news in 2012. We will be recording an EP in May with producer Scott Litt (REM, Nirvana, Patti Smith) to be released this year and will resume touring in March.

We've got a lot of new music to share with you and promise to bring you the best recordings and live shows of our careers. We sincerely thank you for the continual love and support you've shown.

Jessi, Nikki, Linwood
Those Darlins' only scheduled dates at the moment are in Europe.

Yes, the lineup for tonight's Black Twilight Circle show at The Charleston has changed again, this time swapping out Shataan for Kallathon (who also played on Monday). The crew visited WFMU last night for a live set featuring SEVEN of their bands.

Despite what "This Week in Indie" originally listed, Ladytron is actually Saturday at Terminal 5.

This Week in Indie doesn't have many shows previews for tonight, but note that it does mention tonight's 285 Kent show in the Thursday section.

Friends, who also just announced a Mercury Lounge show with Ganglians (that goes on sale at noon today), plays that 285 Kent show.

Those Darlins got all dressed up and made a new video for "Screws Get Loose". Watch below...

What else?

Drive-By Truckers @ Stubb's
Drive-By Truckers

Y'ALL:
Last Wednesday, I fell down and cut my hand.
Fifteen stitches in my left palm.
Wish I had a cool story, but I don't.
The movie version would have me getting cut by a bottle of rot-gut whiskey in a bar fight.
No doubt defending the honor of someone or another.
My heroics bookended by a scene of me carrying my hand for reattachment by a disgraced former surgeon in the back of a grimy tattoo shop because lack of insurance would preclude being seen by a real doctor.
I would be brave and not cry or complain.

Hurling would be out of the question.

Ahh, the movie version.

Unfortunately, the truth is kind of tame, lame even.
I was picking my daughter up at first grade, carrying a bottle of water.
I tripped and fell (in front of her entire class).
I fell, shattering the glass which I then duly landed upon, pushing shards up into my hand.
My fucking left hand.
Fifteen stitches in my palm.
No biggie. No cut tendons or damaged muscle. Missed that artery (bled like a stuck pig though).
Hurts like hell, but it won't long and I will be as good as new in a month or less.
Unfortunately, I can't play guitar for a few weeks and we have a tour beginning this week.

In the words of Three Dog Night, "The show must go on".
My friend Kevin told me, as I was bleeding all over the playground, awaiting my ride to the Emergency Room, "You guys have too many guitar players anyway."
Nonetheless, to insure everyone's Premium Rock and Roll Experience, we have recruited our friend Will Johnson, from Centro-matic to fill in on guitar, covering the SG through a Fender Vibro-King parts.
I will be in full front man mode, on other words, it's dancing shoes time.
I always wanted to be Phil Mogg, and for the next couple of weeks...

We only have Will Johnson through New Orleans, then we will have to improvise, but that's one of the things we do best, so STAY TUNED.

So come out to this, hopefully once in a lifetime DBT Show.
We guarantee you a great time and a Premiere Go-Go Extravaganza that you'll be telling your Grandkids about (maybe sooner than later).

Oh and Bob, the 9th is my son's birthday and it's GO TIME.

Long Live Rock and Roll and Country Soul.
Captain Hook
(Patterson Hood)
(or is it Dr. Hook?)

An injured Drive By Truckers played a headlining show at Stubb's in Austin on 9/1 with Will Johnson on guitar and with Will Johnson's band Centro-Matic opening. The New Orleans date has now also passed, but the show goes on and DBT continue their tour on 9/7 in Tuscaloosa AL (a benefit for tornado relief).

The current trek never comes east, but in October DBT play a string of shows with Those Darlins not long after Those Darlins play The Bell House in Brooklyn with The Beets and Brothers. Tickets are still on sale for that show. Centro-Matic play MusicFestNW this coming weekend in Portland.

All dates and more pictures from the Austin show, below...

Peelander-Z

Japanese action comic punks Peelander-Z recently played Warped Tour. The tour included stops at NY's Nassau Coliseum and NJ's Monmouth Park. Pictures from both shows are in this post.

Peelander-Z will return to the Brooklyn stage later this month when they present P-Pop-Party #2 at Death By Audio on August 24 with "Japanese Gypsy Cabaret" group Izumi Goto, Luke and the Cocktails (members of Peelander-Z and Anamanaguchi), Peelander-Z's sister band Peewonder-Z, and possibly a special guest from Planet-Peelander. A couple of weeks later the often-touring band will get back on the road for yet another tour. Their tourmates include The Aggrolites and Those Darlins. All dates are listed below.

In other Peelander-Z news, their greatest hits album Super DX Hitz is out now via Chicken Ranch Records as a CD/DVD combo that includes five karaoke videos. You can order the CD from the Chicken Ranch webstore. Check out a karaoke video for "S.T.E.A.K.", with more pics from Warped Tour and all dates below...
