Blondes at 110 Troutman - 9/15/12
The day after the secret show at 285 Kent (9/14), which Ariel Pink didn't play, a Weird Magic-presented show went down at 110 Troutman (9/15) in Brooklyn with Blondes, Huerco S., Lamin Fofana, and Slava, plus DJ sets by Jan Woo, Irradiance Cache, //API//, and Terekke (who was a last-minute addition). Pictures from the show are in this post.
Teengirl Fantasy were on the bill too but the party was shut down by cops before they could take the stage. To make up for that, the band tweeted that they'll do a "secret set somewhere in bk this fri try 2 guess." There's a guest this Friday (9/21) at the Glasslands show with Nicholas, Jacques Renault, and Down + Out, but the guest is "from down under," so we can assume that's someone from Australia and not Teengirl Fantasy. There's also a special guest at the 285 Kent show with Laurel Halo, Ital, M. Geddes Gengras and Magic Touch. Any guesses on where it will be?
More pics from Saturday's show are below.

When Altered Zones announced last month that they would no longer be operating, editors Ric Leichtung and Emilie Friedlander also announced a new project, AdHoc.fm, which will be "a 100% independent, daily music and visual culture publication" and is "coming in 2012."
Ad Hoc are throwing a New Year's Eve party at 285 Kent (12/31) with sets by AraabMuzik, Balam Acab, Light Asylum, Laurel Halo, Run DMT, a special guest, and Weird Magic DJs. Tickets for the show are on sale now. More details and dates are below.
Laurel Halo will also be DJing in NYC on New Year's Eve at Zebulon with DJ Hiro Kone and a band TBA. They'll be spinning "Italo Disco, House, Soul, Techno, Postpunk; whatever makes you move."
Another similar electronic-filled NYE option is the Nosaj Thing show at Glasslands (12/31). When we first discussed the show, no openers had been announced yet. We now know that the bill also includes El Topo (aka Dave Harrington of Nicolas Jaar's Darkside project), Archie Pelago, and DJIlirjana (Pop Manifesto/Typical Girls). Tickets are still available.
Speaking of AraabMuzik, he released the deluxe edition to his album Electronic Dream last week. The album features six new tracks, including the Deadmau5-sampling "I Remember," which you can stream below. We recently spoke to Gang Gang Dance engineer Sean Maffucci who is in New Moods, and he said "I don't think I've heard a record like this before. It seems to break every production rule and yet sounds so sweet and pleasing to the ears."
