"Panda Bear is blowing my mind right now. All new songs so far. All incredible" - Will Oliver
"Panda Bear played basically all new material! SO excited about how chillgroovywonderful the new album will be! (90s tumblr aesthetic w/e)" - @P0ssiblymaybe_
"New panda bear sounds fucking stellar" - Carly
"Panda bear played a whole set of new material in bk tonight! Fucking killer!" - Jordan Morriseey
"Panda Bear's new jams are groovy" - Steve R. Seigh Jr.
Animal Collective member Panda Bear has a new solo album in the works -- tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper -- and as he and AnCo tend to do, he's been playing a lot of the new stuff on tour ahead of its release. His tour hit NYC last night for a Red Bull Music Academy show at Warsaw (5/18) with visuals by frequent AnCo collaborator Danny Perez. Stereogum caught the show and wrote this of the setlist:
1. An organ track gives way to the kind of church-like music associated with Young Prayer and Person Pitch.Only a short video clip has surfaced from the show as of this post, but the SG review mentioned a Collected Animals commenter said a full stream from the show will come out later in the week. Meanwhile, you can watch some videos of Panda playing new songs at Austin Psych Fest and at his recent DC show.
2. This one is a stone groove, with some real get-up-and-go that spins out and isn't likely to become very friendly with the dance-averse. 3. A xylophone-ish intro breaks into a rhythm that kicks in strongly.
4. This track is heavy on deep electronic notes and features stilted lyrics that make you feel like you're riding a carousel while smoking a joint. A highlight. 5. The punctuated keys here are layered atop undertones that sound straight out of the '80s, like an alternate soundtrack to The Running Man. Slow out the gate, the rhythms get boosted as it unfurls.
6. A floral intro gives way to a baroque, harp-laden crux. Lennox sings the lyrics "all in the family" as part of the chorus; this song is so strong it could win over Archie Bunker. 7. This might be a two-parter along the lines of "Good Girls/Carrots." A relatively short symphonic part leaks into a punchy backbone.
8. There's a "Bros"-like sample that drives into a theme which marches. Another winner.
9. This closer might be the most rock 'n' roll track, chugging along as Lennox sings his heart out.
Encore: a vibrant "Last Night At The Jetty," before "Scheherazade," and "Surfer's Hymn."
Opening the show was AnCo's pal Dam-Funk, who jumped into the crowd for part of his set, and L.I.E.S. producer Torn Hawk, who Pitchfork recently recommended. Pictures of all three artists are in this post.

"Wow Warsaw took away the barricade. Gonna piiiit for old skool Fucked Up songs." - @educatingeric
Fucked Up have been on the road for much of 2012, and before ringing in the new year, the Toronto band brought their colossal punk to NYC for a one-off at Warsaw with a great lineup of support from Lemuria, Parquet Courts, and Night Birds. That one-off turned into a surprise two-off, when Fucked Up were announced as the secret headliner for Saturday's (12/22) grand finale of Brooklyn Night Bazaar. Pictures from the Warsaw show are in this post.
Lemuria, who opened for Titus Andronicus (who are touring Europe with Fucked Up soon) earlier in the month, brought out Ted Leo (who recently played with Titus at a Sandy benefit) during their set to cover Elvis Costello's "Waiting on the End of the World." Lemuria will play NYC again at the Don Giovanni showcases in Brooklyn this February.
Parquet Courts, who are reissuing their great debut, Light Up Gold, via What's Your Rupture in January, will be touring again in support of that album. The tour brings them back to Brooklyn on January 11 at Death by Audio. Meanwhile they're in Chicago tonight (12/27).
In related news, Fucked Up's Damian Abraham posted his "fav records that [he] acquired off [his] want list this year" to Matador's Matablog. The list isn't necessarily 2012 releases, but you can read his whole thing and check out more pics from the Warsaw show (unfortunately none of Parquet Courts) below...

The final day of The Power of The Riff festival at Warsaw in Brooklyn over Labor Day Weekend featured a headlining set from sunn 0 ))) who are currently on the road and played a show at Union Transfer in Philly last night with Dead in the Dirt. If you missed them, take David Pajo's word for it... it was a "Triumphant evil assault!"
The Brooklyn show Sunday also featured hefty names like Winter (with their original organist, his first live show!), Repulsion, Double Negative, Coffinworm, Salvation and Dead in The Dirt. Pictures and video from every set are in this post (day one pics are HERE).
Like Xibalba, Power Trip and Lecherous Gaze did on Saturday night (a show announced last minute via Twitter), Coffinworm and Batillus played an afterparty late at Saint Vitus on Sunday (also announced last minute via Twitter). Video of both after-parties and more pictures and video of from the main show on Sunday, below...

"We are going to miss him terribly" - David Johansen
Recording artist, manager of the Sex Pistols, provocateur, fashion designer, impresario -- Malcolm McLaren, who died of cancer April 8th at 64 was all those things. He was also, briefly, the manager of the New York Dolls just before their breakup in 1975. Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain spoke with Rolling Stone about his encounters with McLaren. "I always thought the most important member of the Sex Pistols was Malcolm McLaren," Sylvain says. "When they got back together in the '90s, I thought, 'They're missing their most important star, and that was Malcolm.' "Malcolm McLaren also managed The Sex Pistols. You can hear what Sex Pistol & PiL frontman Johnny Rotten has to say about him HERE.
Rolling Stone: When did you first meet McLaren?
NY Doll Sylvain Sylvain: It was at a clothing trade show back in 1971 in New York City. I had a knitwear company, and he and Vivienne [Westwood] were down at the end of the hallway with their clothing line Let It Rock, which was basically rockabilly clothing. Malcolm had this long blond pompadour, long sideburns and white baggy pants. He was like Jerry Lee Lewis, really cool looking. On the last day of trade shows, designers sell their samples, so I said to David Johansen and Johnny Thunders, "You gotta come over." So we bought some things from Malcolm and Vivienne and invited them down to see us at the Mercer Arts Center. He fell in love with the New York Dolls, and we fell in love with them. Vivienne would tell us, "You boys look so much better in women's clothing."
About to kick off a tour in Europe, it has been announced that the New York Dolls will play Warsaw in Brooklyn on Saturday, May 22nd. Tickets are on sale for the joint Knitting Factory and Scenic production.
You can also catch David Johansen solo on June 27th at Highline Ballroom. All dates and some videos below...
Greenpoint Polish club turned concert venue Warsaw might start having concerts again thanks to Knitting Factory who recently reopened their own permanent space in the neighboring Williamsburg.
The addition of the Warsaw gives the East Coast Knitting Factory talent buying team the flexibility to present concerts in the more-intimate Knitting Factory Brooklyn (capacity approx. 300) or the more expansive Warsaw, a 1,000-capacity showroom.It'll be like the Union Hall / Bell House of Williamsburg, though with more competition in the same neighborhood. Check out the press release below...

No Age - a week or two ago (NOTGL)
Saturday night's Liars and No Age show at Warsaw did not disappoint (Feb 9, 2008). No Age opened the show and set the tone. They played a mix of songs from their ep's, Weirdo Rippers and tracks from their forthecoming album on Sub-Pop called Nouns. Jumping off of speakers and playing in the crowd, No Age set the bar high. The place was packed, and when Liars came out, they fed off all the energy in the room. Due to his back injury, Angus remained seated for a lot of the night, but he did occasionally stand, jump, and wave the Polish flag. The crowd was attentive.
At 6-foot-somethingorother, Liars front man Angus Andrew is a magnetic, kind of menacing presence. Even in a raspberry colored suit. While sitting down. [Sound Bites]Liars @ Warsaw, Broooklyn, NY - Feb 9, 2008 (sssour)
The new Liars material rocked live! And luckily (like the rest of the tour up until then), the New York show went off without a hitch. Philadelphia was not as lucky though. Angus declared during their set Saturday night, "We're canceling tomorrow," and then Liars sent out this bulletin on Sunday...
