Last year, Those Darlins and Diarrhea Planet went on a tour together and later on they crossed paths again at Pickathon. Their Pickathon sets were recorded and the result of that is the Those Darlins/Diarrhea Planet Live At Pickathon split 12" that comes out on Record Store Day (4/18) via Easy Sound Records. Artwork, tracklist, and a stream of Those Darlins' cover of The Vibrators' "Sweet Sweet Heart" and Diarrhea Planet's "Kids" from the 12", below.

Nashville singer/songwriter Adia Victoria put out her debut single "Stuck in the South" this year, and it didn't take long for the track to catch on -- it's already gained praise from Nashville Scene, Rookie, American Songwriter, and Wondering Sound, who included it in their list of their favorite songs of 2014. Adia also caught the attention of Those Darlins, who had her join them in a recent Nashville Scene video session with Caitlin Rose (video below). Adia's single has a Southern twang to it, but it's also got dark doomy riffs that aren't too far removed from '90s PJ Harvey. Listen for yourself below.
Adia also has a tour announced for 2015, including a NYC show happening on January 27 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
All dates are listed, with the song stream and video, below...

King Crimson @ Best Buy Theater
Robert Fripp's legendary prog band King Crimson are back and for this tour Fripp will be joined by Gavin Harrison (drums), Bill Rieflin (drums), Pat Mastelotto (drums), Tony Levin (bass and vocals), Mel Collins (Sax, flute), and Jakko Jakszyk (guitar, vocals).

Wu Tang Clan, The Diplomats, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Curren$y, Lil Kim, Dom Kennedy @ Barclays Center
It's a stacked bill at Brooklyn's Barclays Center tonight of legendary hip hop from Wu-Tang, Dipset, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Lil Kim, plus a couple of the better newer-comers, Curren$y and Dom Kennedy.
The Drums, Beverly, Literature @ Bowery Ballroom
The Drums new album, Encyclopedia, adds some welcome dissonance to their usual helium-fueled surf pop. Tonight's sold out show features two superior indie pop bands: Beverly and Philly's Literature. There's a Sunday matinee show at Rough Trade too.
Backwords, Wild Yaks, Dead Stars, Radical Dads @ Baby's All Right
Backwords have come a long way from their folky beginnings and the band's new album, Nest, is fairly ambitious. They celebrate its release tonight with a very solid lineup of fellow Brooklynites, including classic-style indie rockers, Radical Dads.
Windhand, All Them Witches, Ilsa, Elder @ Saint Vitus
Windhand's doom metal (like most doom metal) is indebted to other bands, especially Electric Wizard, but they've got a sense of melody that makes them genuinely catchy. Their psych-rockin' tourmates All Them Witches are worth catching as well.
Kayo Dot, Islaja, Ill Convoy @ Trans-Pecos
Art metallers Kayo Dot have an insane palette of sounds on their upcoming album, Coffins on Io (obviously), and tonight they'll bring that wacky mix of styles to life at Trans-Pecos.

Palomar, The Oranges Band, So Cow, Overlord @ Cake Shop
Palomar have been around since the late '90s and have outlasted all sorts of other more hyped Brooklyn bands and scenes, putting out quality indie rock LP after quality indie rock LP. Tonight they play with another longrunning indie band, The Oranges Band, and Ireland's So Cow. That's a good show!

United Waters, Samara Lubelski @ Silent Barn
NY's United Waters (the project of ex-Mouthus member Brian Sullivan) put out their album Sunburner earlier this year on Bathetic (the label Angel Olsen used to be on), and it's 8 tracks of good pop songwriting covered by a hazy coat of lo-fi. Samara Lubelski, who played in Chelsea Light Moving with Thurston Moore and several other projects, is on the bill too.
Doom, Hard Skin, EEL, Crimson Scarlett, Kicker, Nomad @ The Wick
Brooklyn's Burning continues today with UK crust vets Doom headlining, along with Oi!-sters Hard Skin, PE-infused punks EEL, dark punks Crimson Scarlett, the Neurosis/Filth/Dystopia-related Kicker, and Brooklyn noisecore rippers Nomad.
Steely Dan @ Capitol Theatre
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker bring Steely Dan's "Jamalot Ever After" tour to The Capitol Theatre . Wear your bad sneakers if you like, but we have a feeling they don't serve pina coladas there.

Dinosaur Jr. / Mac DeMarco @ 2014 4 Knots Music Fest
NYC's free, all-ages 4Knots Music Festival went down across two stages at the South Street Seaport. On the main stage (Pier 16), Radkey kicked things off with their classic-style punk, and (as you can see in the video below) at one point the PA cut out but they just kept rocking. Northampton indie rockers Speedy Ortiz followed with a set that stretched as far back as their early pre-Sports single "Taylor Swift" up through their brand new "Bigger Party" which came out the day before the festival. Ex-Women band Viet Cong followed with a set of their jammy post-punk.
Those Darlins were fun, peppering their set with covers (The Crystals' "Then He Kissed Me" and Dylan's "The Man In Me"). If anyone was going to fall into the river during 4Knots, it would've been during Mac DeMarco's set, but he kept things fairly shenanigan-free. Dinosaur Jr. capped off the evening with an enjoyable and hit-packed set (that is how you Festival, bands) that had a pit/crowdsurfers going the whole time (video of that below).
The other stage was the Front/Row stage over on Fulton St (not exactly where they set up for Seaport Music Festival but almost) with a handful of smaller acts, including day openers and '90s-loving Dead Stars, plus Crazy Pills, Juan Wauters, and heartland rockers Nude Beach. Pictures from their sets, and more of the rest of 2014 4Knots fest, below....

Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Desaparecidos @ Voodoo Fest Day 1 - 11/1/13
"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).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 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]
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)
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...

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.
Tickets for the Janelle Monae show at The Apollo go on Live Nation/Ticketmaster/Apollo A-List presales today at 10 AM (password for Live Nation presale is "summer," for Ticketmaster presale is "electriclady," and for Apollo A-List presale is "apollo").
Those Darlins and Gambles are playing Union Pool on October 12. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

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