Chain & the Gang @ Secret Project Robot in Feb (more by Harriet Roberts)
Like many other venues have been doing, Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg is hosting a Jonathan Toubin benefit which is taking place on January 12. The benefit's got a stacked bill including Chain and the Gang (whose frontman Ian Svenonius DJ'd a JT benefit at Zebulon on Christmas Eve), Eleanor Friedberger (who recently played the BV Holiday Party at the same venue), Shilpa Ray, Nicole Atkins, Two Tears, 5 Dollar Priest, Dorit Chrysler and Theremin, and An American Dream. There will also be DJ sets by JG Thirlwell (aka Foetus) and Jim Sclavunos (Bad Seeds/Grinderman) who both play the Here Comes the Warm Jets show at Joe's Pub in January and a DJ set by Mick Collins, who fronts The Dirtbombs, and whose other band The Gories are playing two shows in NYC this January. Tickets for the MHOW show are on sale.

"Last night i got to see one of my favorite bands re-unite. I thought i had seen the last of HOT SNAKES back on June 1st 2005 when i saw them at their last ever London UK gig. Then i really thought I'd never see them again at their final NYC show on August 9th 2005 at the Bowery Ballroom.And they do it again tonight! (at Maxwell's). More pictures from last night (12/1), setlist included, below...
I was teased last year when OBITS and NIGHT MARCHERS played a secret gig together in Park Slope Brooklyn thinking for sure they would have to do an encore together as HOT SNAKES but no avail. Then i got word that at the same gig in San Diego they did in fact re-unite as HOT SNAKES leaving me with suspicions they would one day play again.
And finally last night on December 1st 2011 it happened at the Bell House in Park Slope Brooklyn. Word's can not describe how incredible every aspect of this show was. From old friends to the most perfect guitar tones to a phenomenal set list. Hat's off to you HOT SNAKES... well done!" [Justin Scurti]
