Quicksand at Bowery Ballroom, Aug 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
As hypothesized, those just-announced Quicksand shows are, in fact, part of an actual tour. The reunited band will hit the road for a string of dates in the new year, with more details emerging by the hour. The dates come to a close in NYC at Webster Hall on 1/30, and include shows with Title Fight, who play a sold-out Bowery Ballroom on Thursday (11/29) as part of a larger tour.
UPDATE: a tour has been announced and pre-sale tickets are on sale now. Check out all tour dates along with live video from their MHoW show in August below.
Quicksand at MHoW, August 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
Quicksand's recent reunion shows in NYC and LA (at Bowery & MHoW, and FYFest respectively), left the crowds itching for more. Now comes word that the post-hardcore heroes have added another pair of Northeastern dates in January, including Paradise Rock Club in Boston on January 7 and Webster Hall in NYC on January 30. Tickets for the latter go on sale on Friday (11/30) at noon. So far, no word of any additional dates... could that be the start and ending of a tour?
UPDATE: A Philadelphia show on Jan 28 at Union Transfer has emerged.
Walter Schreifels at Bowery Ballroom in 2009 (more by Nicole Kibert)
Walter Schreifels has been reunited with a number of his old bands in the past couple years, like Gorilla Biscuits, Rival Schools, and Quicksand, but he's still found time to squeeze in solo shows too. He just played one at Saint Vitus (11/10) for a Hurricane Sandy Relief benefit with Neon Indian (DJ), Buke and Gase, Bloodyminded, and Believer/Law. At the show, he performed the Quicksand track, "Delusional," which you can watch a video of below.
As mentioned, his next solo show happens in NYC on November 30 at Matchless. Show flyer is below.
If you're in the Chicago area, you can catch Walter playing as a member of Gorilla Biscuits at the Revelation Records 25th anniversary in January with Youth of Today, Shelter, Texas is the Reason, Into Another, and more. Revelation 25 NYC went down this past October.
Show flyer, live video, and two recent song streams, are below.

The previously discussed Suffocation show at Saint Vitus on Saturday (11/10) has officially moved to 11/25. Car Bomb, who were last seen playing 285 Kent during CMJ, are also now on the bill. Tickets are on sale and if you bought tickets before, those will be honored. Meanwhile, Suffocation play Cambridge, MA this weekend.
Now on Saturday is another show that is a little bit different.... a relief benefit for Hurricane Sandy with a Neon Indian DJ set, plus live appearances from Buke and Gase, Bloodyminded, Believer/Law, and Walter Schreifels (solo set). $10 minimum donation required, all of which goes to the Red Hook Initiative. Buke & Gase have a new single which also contributes to RHI.
For Walter Schriefels, the show is one of two on his calendar with the second being an appearance at Matchless on 11/30 with Dave Hill, Census and Belgrade. He'll also play as a member of Gorilla Biscuits in Chicago in the coming months as part of their edition of Revelation Records 25th Anniversary.

Walter of Quicksand at Bowery Ballroom (more by Nicole Kibert)
Just a gentle nudge, for all of you Slip worshippers. Tickets for Quicksand's second NYC show (August 25 at Music Hall of Williamsburg) go on sale at noon TODAY (8/10) at noon. The show is the day after the band takes to the stage at Bowery Ballroom (8/24) and a week before they jet to the West Coast to take on FYF. Ladies and gentlemen, get your browsers ready.
If you don't snag a ticket (the band has implemented a will-call-only policy to help ward off the ne'er-do-wells) or even if you do, luckily you can catch Quicksand BEFORE that when the band plays Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on August 22nd.
Quicksand live at Rev 25 (via)
Quicksand have made good on their promise to play NYC before FYF in Los Angeles! The legendary NYC band WILL reunite to play NYC at Bowery Ballroom on August 24, their first NYC date since the band's dissolution more than thirteen years ago! Tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 1 at noon.
Check out the entire Quicksand performance from Pomona, CA's Glass House in June below, alongside some classic Quicksand videos.

I was sitting at work reconciling a bunch of budgets when a small but heavy pile of comedy news fell into my lap. It is now up to me to disseminate this news to your hungry eyes. But before I get down to bidness I have to mention a recent comedic experience that really floated my denim clad boat. I don't normally review comedy shows because comedy is so subjective, but this show was enough to get me out of my apartment during a heatwave so it deserves mention. Klaus favorite Tom Shillue brought his storytelling show Funny Story to the confines of Brooklyn Brewery for the first time last night, June 20th, 2012 and cleaning crews are still at work gathering my busted guts from the walls and ceiling of the place. Funny Story has taken place at a few venues in the city, including UCB East and UCB West but this was the first one at the Brewery. The second you walk in, the first thing you notice is the smell. I don't know if you've ever been in a brewery, but imagine putting burnt pizza crust and Eukanuba dog food in a black plastic garbage bag and leaving it on the hood of a cement truck in the dead of summer and then opening said bag after 8 hours. It is a rank odor that I was afraid would distract me for the entire show; happily for some reason my nose got used to it in about 15 minutes and I was able to enjoy the STELLAR line-up unencumbered of olfactory distractions. Tom kicked things of with a hilarious tale of an early visit to NYC with his 2nd cousin Grover, adventures at famed nightclub Tunnel, getting Andy Warhol's autograph on a soup can in Boston, and eventually losing touch with Grover in the late 90s. Musical genius Walter Schreifels was up next and regaled the venue with various tales of neighborhood life in Williamsburg before offering up a heart-breaking grand finale story about bike theft and redemption. Philip Galinsky was up next, but I sadly missed a good amount of his performance due to a bathroom break and a beer token run; but what I did see and hear was hilarious and his stage presence was absolutely incredible. He runs the Manhattan Monologue Slam with his brother Robert, so keep your eye out for him. The great Bobby Tisdale followed Galinsky and told what, for me, were probably the funniest anecdotes of the evening. Topics included having sex like a cat, having his yam-bag punctured by a cat in search of his girlfriend's 'essence,' and having his own Julie Robert's-pretty-woman-jewel-box-surprise-moment, only it wasn't a jewelry box and the surprise involved an unexpected spray of water. I wish the event was being recorded because everyone on earth MUST hear these tales. MUST. The night was capped off with the incomparable John Mulaney who waxed about he and his family's history and experiences with Bill Clinton. Not sure when the next installment of Funny Story is but I will do everything in my power to spread the word on BV because it's a must-see. And you get a beer with the cost of admission. Boo-ya!
In other comedy news, as expected, Dame Julie Klausner's live podcast taping at the Bell House happening on June 27th with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Jim Gaffigan, and the recently added Martha Plimpton, and more, is now sold out. Do yourself a favor and start mining Craigslist for a ticket now because this could be the show of the century.
Speaking of comedy shows that will sell out, LA based comedian, ex-Mr. Show cast member, and all around great, great man Scott Aukerman is bringing Comedy Bang! Bang! LIVE! to the Highline Ballroom on August 7, 2012. The show will feature James Adomian and Tim Heidecker. Comedy Bang! Bang! is not only a hugely successful and totally rad podcast, but it's also a show on IFC that you can see Friday's at 10/9C. In other Tim Heidecker in NYC news, don't forget you can catch him on Friday June 29th at Littlefield where he will be on Kurt Braunohler's show Night of the Living alongside millionaire armpit hair aficionado Amanda Palmer. And much like Scott Aukerman, Braunohler has a show on IFC Friday nights at 10:30/9:30C called Bunk
And speaking of LA-based comedians coming to NYC, Klaus favorite Doug Benson will be in town on July 2nd, 2012 at the Gramercy Theater where he will deliver us Doug Loves Movies Live Podcast with Doug Benson & Special Guests. I have been to these I Love Movies podcast tapings before and they are absolutely the most fun you can have sitting down.
Why not keep this LA comedy in NYC ball rolling (awful segue, huh?)? I am pleased as punch to say that the Nerdist Podcast Live is COMING TO NYC on October 12th, 2012! Tickets for this show, which happens at the massive Best Buy Theater, went on sale at noon today. The Nerdist Podcast features Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, and Matt Mira. You know Chris from his extensive television work, including hosting "Web Soup" on G4 and "Talking Dead" on AMC, his appearances with Conan O'Brien, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Fallon, and many others, his book "The Nerdist Way." Jonah's a rising standup comic in Los Angeles, co-hosts a popular weekly live standup show, and writes for E! Entertainment Television's "The Soup." Matt's a staffer on G4's "Attack of the Show" and host of his own weekly live standup comedy show in L.A. as well. Together, they host the Nerdist Podcast, one of the most popular comedy podcasts in the world and are all featured on the 'Nerdist' specials airing on BBC America. For sheer skills as a comedian though, Jonah Ray wins. I love that dude. More Nerdist dates here.
Ok I am starting to feel homesick. Better talk about NYC for a sec. On Monday June 25th 2012, Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen is bringing the f-ing stank to Littlefield in Brooklyn. The line-up will feature Simon Amstell, who has a Numb residency happening in NYC VERY soon, the great Glenn Wool, Lady Carol, and Josh Gondelman. Tickets are on sale now, but get them now because the gonna be gone very very soon yo.
Walter of Quicksand at Union Pool (more by Redboy)
According to trusted sources, NYC post-hardcore greats Quicksand will return to NYC to play a "free or cheap" show at the end of this summer and will NOT play the discussed Revelation Anniversary shows in NYC as previously speculated and rumored (though those shows are happening with other bands). The yet-to-be-announced NYC date will take place in the days leading up to their already confirmed appearance at FYF in Los Angeles. The band feels the need to make their return in their hometown before making the trek to LA, to ensure that they can "give back" to the city they call home.
It's probably worth noting that FYF, who are hosting Quicksand in LA, are also the presenters of the House of Vans shows in NYC, and that House of Vans still has four TBA lineups to announce (nothing is confirmed at the moment though). (The first House of Vans 2012 show happens this week with the Rapture).
Quicksand, which contains all original members (Walter Schreifels, Tom Capone, Alan Cage and Sergio Vega) has changed their band status from inactive to active after they made their return at Revelation Records' 25th anniversary spectacular on the West Coast. So far no additional plans are known, but reportedly the show went well enough that the band is considering additional dates through the end of 2012, schedule permitting.
More on this story as it develops, but I've already blocked off the month of August as "busy."
Reminder, Sergio of Quicksand is currently serving as bassist for Deftones, who'll tour this summer and play the NYC area twice.
Quicksand reunited at Revelation 25 (via)
It seemed somewhat inevitable, but Quicksand (Walter Schreifels, Tom Capone, Alan Cage, Sergio Vega), split since 1999, reunited last night, Sunday, June 10th, as part of the Revelation 25th Anniversary Celebration, a weekend of shows in Pomona, California at the Glass House from June 7-10. The stellar festival lineup featured names that graced and help shape the label's storied history, names like Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Into Another, Supertouch, Bold, Sick of It All, No For An Answer, Sense Field, Statue, Ignite, In My Eyes, Kiss it Goodbye, Gameface and Shai Hulud. Quicksand were not on the bill, though they did advertise "special guest".
Check out video below of the reunited Quicksand performing "Fazer" "Dine Alone" Omission" and their set closer "How Soon is Now?", The Smiths classic that graced the B-Side of the "Dine Alone" single. (Does anyone have the full setlist?) While you're down there, don't miss video of Underdog, Into Another, Gorilla Biscuits and more.
What does this mean? Is this their only appearance? I'm betting that someone has Terminal 5 on hold for a week (though someone wrote on Wikipedia that " It will be a one-time only reunion"). Videos below...
I was at Pukkelpop festival with Rival Schools earlier this week, still trying to make sense of it. The storm hit about twenty minutes before we were supposed to play.Walter tours the US in September with the Walter Schreifels Band and then in October with Rival Schools.
Strange to say, knowing what we know now but I was having fun watching the storm, by the time it really started coming down I was safe in the backstage area. As violent as the storm was it only slightly crossed my mind that someone would get hurt.
I guess having seen that stage collapse in Indiana the week before it just seemed to weird to have another tragedy like that happen in the same week.
I was listening to Skunk Anansie's set as the hail arrived. As they were leading up a huge creshendo/finale to their set the motherload of lightning came down on the festival in perfect time. I wanted to be in the audience at that moment and not backstage, it was an awesome sound.
The storm raged on for about a half hour after that at full intensity, hale and everything. When it finally slowed down people started to show up backstage with news, at first it was cool stories of how crazy it was and how there were trees down and that it didn't look like we'd get to play.
After that we heard that a couple of people had died and then it wasn't so fun, started to feel a little guilty that it had been fun actually. The death number went up to 6 and then back to two and when I heard the next day I think it was seven.
It was a very strange beginning to the tour for us, I was happy to be safe and with my friends but I felt bad knowing how some people's lives would never be the same. Helped me to understand why insurance companies use the expression "An act of God". My heart goes out to the families of the victims.
Emo leaning punks Samiam are back to release, Trips, their first album in 5 years. Trips was recorded with producer Chris Dugan (Iggy Pop, Lars Frederiksen & the Bastards) and comes out on September 6 via Hopeless Records. Album and tracklist below.
The band will go on an international tour in support of the album with Walter Schreifels opening some of the North American dates. The tour includes a stop at Philly's Riot Fest, Asbury Lanes, and hits NYC on September 16 at Santos Party House with Walter. Tickets for Santos are on sale now.
Walter completed a residency at Saint Vitus on June 30th. A bunch of videos from that full band show can be watched below.

Walter Schreifels on stage with Rival Schools at Union Pool (more by Redboy)
It's hot time, summer in the city and I'm playing a residency at my new favorite bar in Greenpoint, Saint Vitus!!!Walter Schreifels, who recently played Webster Hall in Gorilla Biscuits, will headline three Thursdays in June at new venue Saint Vitus (1120 Manhattan Avenue, Greenpoint) starting this Thursday (6/16). The other shows are 6/23 with Radar Fiction and 6/30 with Vs Antelope. All shows feature one more band TBA and are $7. Flyer is below. Keep your fingers crossed for that cover of Slip.
I've been jonesing to play in Bk. and bust out some of my new material for "Jesus Is My Favorite Beatle" as well as soak up the only slightly less hot than daytime, summer nights AND for those of you who prefer the past to the future, have no fear-I'm knocking around the idea of playing side 2 of Slip, completely improvised, I will NOT practice. Also, considering side 2 of Victim in Pain...might be a game-time decision.
My point is that I'll be keeping it lively, experimental and if that doesn't work I've invited some other great artists to join me. For my debut on June 16 I am honored to have the talented Fletcher C. Johnson on board to perform in addition to the roots stylings of The Goddamn Rattlesnake
Rival Schools also have some dates scheduled, though the only one in the US at the moment is Lollapalooza. All of their dates are also below...

Gorilla Biscuits needs little in the way of introduction for fans of hardcore. When they were ready, a pair of horn players came out and played the intro to "New Direction." This was an awesome touch, definitely better than playing a sample. After the intro, as the first few guitar notes to the song rang out, pandemonium exploded on the dance floor. In addition to "New Direction," the Biscuits played a wide selection of their most popular songs including "Standstill," "Good Intentions," "Sitting Round At Home," "High Hopes," and "Cats and Dogs," among others. They also managed to find time for two covers: "Do Something" by CIV and "New York Crew" by Judge. Anthony Civarelli partly dedicated the song to Mike Judge, who was in the audience, but Mike declined to perform the song with the band, much to everyone's disappointment.Gorilla Biscuits headlined the Black & Blue Bowl back on May 28th at Webster Hall. We'll have more pictures of the whole show coming soon, but for now check out more pictures, videos and the setlist from the reunited hardcore band's set (confirming much of what is written above), below...
Watching Gorilla Biscuits play, you'd swear it was 1991, not 2011. Every song sounded great, and the whole band was full of energy. For their last song, "Start Today," Civ invited the audience on stage to sing along: "There is no barricade here. There are no bouncers here. Trying to control something that should not be controlled is impossible. That is what this is about. You cannot control a tiger in the jungle. You cannot control gorillas in the jungle. We are the animals here. This is our jungle, so for the next two minutes, the stage is yours, the floor is yours, act like the fuckin' animals you are."
The audience took his words to heart, and quickly swarmed the stage, nearly overwhelming the band. They played on, as people crowded around them and flew over their heads. Surrounded on all sides, Civ relinquished the mic to the audience. Walter, who abandoned his guitar, climbed on top of the drum set with his microphone to play the harmonica part, and sing the final chorus with the audience." [Verbicide]
In their own words, "PALOMAR is playing a "benefits residency" every Tuesday [at the Rock Shop] from Nov 16-Dec 14, called 5 GREAT NIGHTS, 5 GREAT CAUSES. The band will play songs from their new, yet-to-be-released album, and have roped in some big names including Nada Surf, Charles and Kevin of The Wrens and many more." Other guests at the shows include Walter Schreifels, Todd Barry, Dave Hill, Eugene Mirman, and Robbers on High Street. Right now only $40 tickets are on sale. That gets you into all five shows. Individual show tickets will be on sale Friday.

Walter with Rival Schools at Union Pool (more by Redboy)
Unfortunately, Walter Schriefels has (again) cancelled his appearance at Generation Records scheduled for today, 9/29, with Fake Problems. Let Me Run will pick up the slack though. The free, all-ages show starts at 7 pm
That said, both Fake Problems AND Walter Schriefels (with his band Rival Schools) will be on stage at Radio City Music Hall on Thursday (9/30). Both bands are opening for The Gaslight Anthem on their current tour, that NYC show included. Tickets are still available, and you can try your luck at winning one of two pairs! Details on how, and all Gaslight Anthem tour dates, which span Europe and Australia, are below.
Torche at The Charleston in May (more by Samantha Marble)
Torche will play their new LP, Songs for Singles, in it's entirety at an all ages in-store (in-basement) show at Generation Records on 10/25 at 5:30PM. That's one day after the band plays Webster Hall with High On Fire and Kylesa (tickets). Songs For Singles is out NOW via Hydra Head. Cop it. All dates below.
That in-store doesn't happen for over a month. Much sooner: a performance is going down at the store on Wednesday (9/29) with Fake Problems and Walter Schriefels (solo). The show is also all ages, and starts at 7PM.
Walter was supposed to play Generation Records in April, but the show was cancelled due to volcano. Walter's band Rival Schools, who recently opened for Weezer at Williamsburg Waterfront, is going out on tour with Gaslight Anthem next. Those dates include the September 30th show happening at Radio City Music Hall.
All Rival Schools and Torche dates below...
Best Coast @ Knitting Factory in April (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Greetings from Toronto. NXNE, the Toronto music/film/interactive fest is happening this week. It kicked off its music programming last night, Wednesday, June 16th, and runs through Sunday with shows at 50+ venues (here's a map of the spots). The festival also coincides with the now-affliated Broken Social Scene-helmed Toronto Island concert that features Pavement, Band of Horses, Beach House and others on Saturday, June 19th.
There weren't many Wednesday night shows. The official kick off party was just Eagles of Death Metal (sadly, without their normal bass player) at The Phoenix. And there was a gig or two with Canada's Hollerado (who have at least six shows at the fest lined up). One of them was up in the CN Tower.Still Life Still played the Mod Club with Denmark's The Blue Van.
One of the main hubs will be the free-to-anyone outdoor stage at Yonge-Dundas Square with headliners Thursday night X and Mudhoney, Friday night Sloan and k-os, Saturday night Iggy and the Stooges preceded by The Raveonettes, Wavves, Surfer Blood and others, and Sunday's De La Soul, Kid Sister, Phenomenal Handclap Band and NOLA rapper Big Freedia.

Walter Schreifels @ Bowery Ballroom (more by Nicole Kibert)
Walter Schreifels unfortunately cannot make his solo show at Generation Records tomorrow on Record Store Day. Due to the Icelandic volcano, Walter is stuck in Moscow and won't be able to fly home in time. "I'm at a Dharma Initiative like military camp about 30 miles outside of the city. It's not bad, only that we can't leave and I left my book on the plane from Tokyo. The ash from that Icelandic volcano has grounded any flight headed that way for days...so I'm stuck here." (from Walter via email)The other Record Store Day shows at Generation Records are still on, as is the volcano-caused Shrinebuilder show happening at Europa tonight (4/16).
However you can still catch him at the album release show for his solo debut, An Open Letter To The Scene. The album is out May 4th on Academy Fight Song, and the show is at the Studio at Webster Hall on May 5th.
Generation Records (210 Thompson St. in NYC) has one of the busier Record Store Days this Saturday (4/17), with live sets from Cymbals Eat Guitars, Black Wine (ex-The Ergs/Hunchback who play April 25th at Mercury Lounge), Walter Schreifels (ex-Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand) and The Budos Band and DJing from Andrew WK, at 2pm.
UPDATE: Walter had to cancel due to volcano.
Space in the store is limited (to say the least), so getting there early is recommended. Though stores generally can't guarantee which Record Store Day records that'll have in stock, one of the released singles is going to be a Budos Band/Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings split with a cover of "Day Tripper" and from Sharon's new record, "Money." Both Sharon and Budos have some other NYC shows coming up too.
Cymbals Eat Guitars go on to open for Los Campesinos on their upcoming tour. Both bands play a sold-out Maxwell's show later on April 17th. And they have an April 22nd show at Irving Plaza, which you can still get tickets for. All dates below.
CEG just wrapped their tour with Bear in Heaven with an April 9th show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Their encore from that show, all dates and past Generation Records in-stores are below...
DOWNLOAD: Caspian - "Ghosts of the Garden City" (MP3)

Rival Schools at F'd Up's showcase @ Red 7 on 3/20/10
"Heading back indoors, New York City's Rival Schools were already blasting out their blend of power pop by way of post-punk to an excited crowd. After releasing their one and only album and taking a near decade long hiatus, the band are back and ready to drop their new release through Photo Finish / Atlantic records this summer. The audience ate up the fun loving sound, as Walter Schreifels (Quicksand) and company were clearly having a great time. The band was the final act of the SXSW experience, and was thrilled to be there with the full house of fans that had stuck around. The band may have done a bit of drinking in anticipation for this last breath of rock, as Schreifels was playing with an unusual looseness, bordering on the line of sloppiness, but carefully never crossing over. Spirits were high as he shouted thanks between each songs, louder than the actual song preceding it. They played a selection of new songs with interesting explanations to their origins, as well as fan favorites "High Acetate," "Undercovers On," and "Good Things," to which Schreifels announced, "Hey everyone, we all have health care!"" [Exploding in Sound]Advance tickets are on sale for Rival Schools at Union Pool on 4/23, where presumably, the band will celebrate their signing to Photo Finish/Atlantic Records. Congrats dudes! The band has been working on new material over the past year at guitarist Ian love's studio as well as Studio G with Joel Hamilton, though no word on a release date/title/anything so far.
Meanwhile, Ian Love's old collaborator in Jonah Matranga recently dropped a new song with hs old band Far. Get it through the band directly for free. Far's new LP, At Night We Live hits the racks via Vagrant on May 18th.
Walter Schriefels's new LP An Open Letter to The Scene will see release via Academy Fight Song (in the US) and Dine Alone Records (in Canada) on May 4th.
Current tour dates and the cover of Far's new LP, At Night We Live, are below...
Happy Holidays! I take on more than I can handle. That results in a lot of unposted content. In the name of catching up, while also taking it easy during this final week of the year, here's some of that lost material.
