All Polyphonic Spree dates are listed, along with a full list of the Bonnaroo lineup additions and a video of the Polyphonic Spree covering Nirvana's "Lithium" at our BV-SXSW day party (one of our greatest moments at SXSW this year), below...
White Lung @ Bowery Ballroom last weekend (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
As mentioned a few times, the Village Voice's 4Knots Music Festival goes down on June 29 at Pier 17 at South Street Seaport with headliner Kurt Vile & the Violators, plus The Men, Parquet Courts and Marnie Stern. The fest just announced five more acts: Reigning Sound, White Lung (who just played with Parquet Courts at Bowery), The Babies, Fat Tony and Heliotropes. With two stages to fill, there's still more acts to be announced.
Reigning Sound's Greg Cartwright will get to know the Pier 17 stage pretty well by summer's end, as his other band, Oblivians, will play there for the Seaport Music Festival on June 7, which is also free. As mentioned, Reigning Sound recently signed to Merge Records who will release that band's new album at some point this year.

Iceage / White Lung
Four different countries were represented at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (4/20) when Denmark's Iceage and Vancouver's White Lung brought their tour through NYC for a show with German hardcore punks Burial (not the electronic artist) and Brooklyn's Parquet Courts. It was a totally solid show all night, with Burial kicking things off to a small (but interested) crowd. The place really started filling up when Parquet Courts came on, the hometown band on the bill, who had a good amount of local supporters coming out to shout along to those quotable lyrics. In addition to the material from 2012's Light Up Gold, they played some new stuff too, which you can see pictured on their setlist below. By White Lung's set, the room was totally crowded (and probably drunker) and the mosh/push pits finally started breaking out, which continued into Iceage's headlining set, played almost entirely in darkness.
Like I said, great show all around, but the highlight for me had to be White Lung (who played their own NYC show earlier that week). It was my first time seeing them play with a professional sound system and light show, and though the appeal of seeing punk bands in smaller/unconventional venues is still there, this setup really worked to White Lung's advantage. They were super loud and singer Mish Way's always powerful performance easily cut through the assault of her bandmates. They stuck mainly to 2012's Sorry but also hit other material like "Two Seen" from 2010's It's the Evil and "Hunting Holiday" from their late 2012 tour 7". It wasn't very long ago that White Lung were an unquestionably smaller band than Iceage, but from the reactions and size of the crowd on Saturday, it was pretty clear that the attention for them has grown immensely. And not for nothing.

White Lung at Acheron - 4/15/13
White Lung are on a tour with Iceage which hits NYC for a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (4/20) with Parquet Courts and Burial, but earlier this week (4/15) they stopped by NYC for their own headlining gig at Acheron. Support at the show came from Goosebumps, Syphilitic Lust and Boca Raton, the latter of whom we unfortunately missed. Pictures of the other three bands are in this post.

Vancouver punks White Lung are in NYC, and will play Acheron tonight (April 15) as part of a surprise appearance with Goosebumps, Syphilitic Lust and Boca Raton. Tickets are still available for this BV-presented, $8 show, a one-off from their current trek with Iceage (that hits a sold-out Bowery on Saturday [4/20]).
White Lung went absolutely wild with shows at SXSW 2013 (including one of our day parties), and played Austin again at Beerland last week (4/6) with Feral Future. More pictures from that show are below.
Tragedy at Le Poisson Rouge (Keith Marlowe)
Tragedy are confirmed for Chaos in Tejas (with Los Crudos) and Maryland Deathfest this year, but now comes word that the Portland d-beat heroes will play NYC too! Look for Tragedy to take 285 Kent on May 27, snagging support from the great Shoxx and Altered Boys. Ticketing information is on the way.

Goosebumps @ Saint Vitus, 2/26/2013
Acheron just got a little bit wilder. New York punk crew Goosebumps have been added to the previously discussed White Lung suprise show at Acheron on April 15. Tickets for the Brooklyn-Vegan co-presented show, which also features appearances from Syphilitic Lust and Boca Raton, are still available. White Lung's other area appearance, supporting Iceage at Bowery Ballroom, is sold out.
Goosebumps, meanwhile, joined D.R.I., Deathcycle and Concrete Cross for a show at Saint Vitus on February 26. Belated pictures and video (plus a bonus Goosebumps video), minus Concrete Cross (who our photographer missed), are below.
White Lung at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Bruno Simoes)
White Lung's appearance with Iceage at Bowery Ballroom on April 20 is now officially sold out, but that's not gonna stop them from playing to their fans. Word's just come that White Lung has added another show on April 15 at Acheron, snagging support from Syphylitic Lust and Boca Raton. Tickets are on sale.
As mentioned, Still Corners' new album, Strange Pleasures, is out next month (5/4) on Sub Pop. Reduced to a duo of core members Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray, the band embrace synthesizers which gives their sound an Air-y feel.

Still Corners are one of many new additions to 2013 of NXNE which happens at various Toronto venues from June 10 - 16. All Still Corners dates are listed, along with the updated NXNE lineup, below...

Austra / APTBS / the crowd
We wrapped up our stay at The Main and The Jr (aka old Emo's) with our fourth and final BrooklynVegan SXSW day party on Saturday (3/16). Unfortunately, Foxygen had to drop off at the last minute because the singer lost his voice. They would have played the outdoor stage (Pianos Stage), where we still saw sets from the arty synthpop of Empress Of, the loudest set of all of our day parties from A Place to Bury Strangers, and a super fun set from catchy UK rockers Palma Violets. Then came the sexy R&B of Autre Ne Veut, followed by a set by Austra, who were previewing expansive material from their upcoming sophomore album, Olympia. Then finally, the outdoor stage was wrapped up with a set from psychedelic pop New Zealanders Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
Inside, the show kicked off with the catchy indie pop of TEEN, followed by rockin' UK band Peace, and then three consecutive synthpop groups, Feathers, MS MR, and Doldrums. Then the show took a louder turn with an adrenaline-pumping set from White Lung, bouncy young garage punks The Orwells, and finally King Tuff.
In addition to the music, we had an interactive photo and video booth set up by Oxygen tattoo show, "Best Ink". The second season (hosted by Pete Wentz who made a surprise appearance in their booth) premieres April 3rd. Onkyo was there, sampling their new headphones which hit stores next month. mophie maker of invaluable iPhone chargers, were giving away discount cards good at their pop-up shop which was set up right across the street on Red River. We were also serving complimentary Jameson, and Zico coconut water, and free vegan queso and chips from Food For Lovers. We also had BrooklynVegan t-shirts for the first 50 people in the door, thanks to American Apparel. Also thanks to our other sponsors, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, Creative Recreation, Signazon, Zazoo, and Redigi.

White Lung at the BrooklynVegan SXSW Saturday day party
You see so much music at SXSW that it all starts to blur. "Oh yeah I totally forgot I saw (insert artist name here) two days ago!" I found myself thinking so many times. But one of the bands I know I'm not going to forget seeing is White Lung. I first caught them Wednesday night at the Enabler/Don Giovanni/Sacred Bones/Suicide Squeeze showcase, which was the night of my first full day in Austin and I was totally energetic. But when I saw them again on Saturday (3/16) at the BrooklynVegan day party at The Jr. (the indoor stage of the old Emo's), I wanted to pass out -- or just do anything but watch live music. Yet somehow I found myself in the front row putting everything I had into screaming along with their set, because that's what White Lung makes you do. Mish Way is one the most powerful singers I saw at SXSW and the band's constant full-throttle attack is the kind of adrenaline-pumping music that sets you off. I dare to you see White Lung and stand there with your arms folded.
I was talking to a friend after their set about how it's kind of unfortunate that when punk bands get attention outside of their micro punk scenes, it's usually for making a relatively un-punk album. If enough people catch on to White Lung though, they seem like the type of band who would defy this trend. They are brutal and relentless and have the type of passion in their lyrics that made early punk bands so necessary. And they never sacrifice those things when harnessing the same kind of melody and accessibility that send kids to Fucked Up and Japandroids shows.
Big thanks to our sponsors Oxygen, Best of Ink, Onkyo, mophie, Jameson, Zico, Food For Lovers, American Apparel, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, ReDigi, Signazon, Korg, Creative Creation, and Mirrored Media, who we couldn't do the day party without. A full set of pictures from all the bands at the party is coming soon, meanwhile check out more of White Lung from that show below...

White Lung / Nu Sensae @ Holy Mountain, 3/13/2013
The Enabler/Don Giovanni/Suicide Squeeze/Sacred Bones SXSW showcase went down at Holy Mountain last night (3/13) in Austin with a bunch of great bands like White Lung, Waxahatchee, Nu Sensae, California X, and more.
I'm a fan of California X's self-titled album, which came out recently on Don Giovanni, but much like Torres did earlier that day, these guys really blew me away live on a level I didn't get from the record. They tend to get grouped into the "bands that sound like Dinosaur Jr." category, but after seeing them for my first time last night, I really think they come off as force of their own. They rock out, swing their long hair around, and deliver a solid mix of riffage, punchy tunes, and sludge-drenched heaviness, that only sounds hinted-at on their album. Someone get these guys in the studio with Steve Albini.
Easily one of the most anticipated artists at this year's SXSW is Waxahatchee, whose new album, Cerulean Salt, just hit shelves and is driving a lot of people wild. And her live show lives up too. She played full band and stuck to the more rock-oriented songs and rock versions of softer tunes, and at least in the front of the room, the crowd was completely zoned in. "I loved Waxahatchee!" I excitedly said to someone at the show. "Yeah, everyone does," was her response. It's true.
The show ended with two Vancouver punk bands (who also happen to be good friends), Nu Sensae and White Lung. Nu Sensae played a pretty short set on the backyard stage and their great mix of noise rock, punk, and no wave was spot on last night. Then White Lung took the stage indoors and really tore things up. Singer Mish Way is a powerhouse on stage and her band are no slackers either (watching that guitarist shred is about as intense as Mish's shouts). The crowd was super into them too, starting mini moshpits and fist-raised shoutalongs, especially during tracks like "Thick Lip" and "Glue."
You can catch White Lung at our free SXSW day party on Saturday (3/16) at 3:45 PM on The Jr. stage.

Savages @ CMJ 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
SXSW gets underway today (3/13) in earnest, with 83,207 bands* playing SXSW this year. Trying to figure out who to see can be an overwhelming feeling. (Actually, just standing on 6th St. on Friday night is an overwhelming feeling.) Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration if you're among the throngs of people. Or maybe just some new stuff to listen to if you're not there.
Of course you could just hang out at all our day parties (our first starts at noon today!) and evening showcases, as we're really proud of our line-ups. But there are bands who we are pumped to see who aren't playing too. So here are 40 bands we're genuinely pumped to see in Austin this week. We made a Spotify playlist of all the bands (at least the ones on the service) you can stream below.
Check out our list below...
*not the actually number of showcasing bands. But it feels accurate.
This is Day 4 of four BrooklynVegan SXSW Day Parties this year...
As you know, BrooklynVegan is returning to Austin for SXSW this year and throwing four days of day parties at The Main & The Jr aka 603 Red River Street at the corner of 6th aka the old Emo's location. Those happen Wed (3/13), Thurs, Fri and Saturday (3/16). All shows are 100% FREE with RSVP
To quote SXSW:
SXSW is proud to announce an interview with Syrian artist and cult international legend Omar Souleyman on March 15th from 5-6pm in ACC room 16AB. Omar will speak with Daily Dot Editor Austin Powell about the issues surrounding the devastating conflict in his home country, the evolution of the Syrian music landscape, and what the future may hold for himself and artists like him.This show is one of three BrooklynVegan-presented nighttime events at SXSW this year, and is in addition to our day parties.
Later that evening Omar will be joined by the amazing Black Lips, Deer Tick and more in a special performance at a Red Cross benefit aptly named Our Heart Aches For Syria. The show takes place at Long Center For The Performing Arts beginning at 9pm on Friday 3/15 after the Flaming Lips Auditorium Shores show. Donations are $10 with all money going to the International Red Cross's Syrian Arab Red Crescent. Please join us for a spectacular evening for a great cause. THIS SHOW IS OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC

White Lung at Tommy's Tavern, 6/29/2012
Vancouver's White Lung, who were here back in April, passed through NYC again last night for a show at Tommy's Tavern (6/28), snagging support from local power-pop favorites Nude Beach, plus California X, Casanovas in Heat, The Narcs and Utah Jazz. Nude Beach play again tonight, supporting The Young and Census at 285 Kent with Zach Cale & The Rain Band for what will surely be an extremely sweaty show. More pictures from Tommy's Tavern are below.
I've had a few encounters White Lung and Nude Beach recently (great and great), so the big stand out to me was California X. The Massachusetts band worships at the altar of Dinosaur Jr and Husker Du (which I wish more bands did, truthfully), creating some sugar-y pop melodies buried beneath layers and layers of crunch. This is definitely a heavy band live too; one hell of a first showing in NYC. Stream their killer new 7" below.
DOWNLOAD: Nu Sensae - "Swim" (MP3)
Vancouver three-piece Nü Sensae has cultivated a style of punk that gives a tip of the hat to L7, pre-makeover Hole, and hardcore all in one angst-ridden, furious pass. The band is preparing its new LP Sundowning for release on August 7th via Suicide Squeeze Records, and have shared the first track "Swim" in both video and MP3 form. Check out the MP3 above and the video below.
Nu Sensae will tour in the days leading up to and after the release of Sundowning, swinging through NYC for a stop at Death by Audio on August 20th. The show will also feature Psychic Blood, one of a string of shows the two bands will play together.
All tour dates are listed below, along with the "Swim" video and a few other Nu Sensae clips.
Milk Music at Death By Audio last year (more by BBG)
Milk Music's previously discussed NYC date at 285 Kent and appearance at Pitchfork has expanded considerably into a tour that will include the Northwest, Midwest and into the East Coast. Full tour itinerary is below.
Milk Music recently released "Violence Now," a track previously available on a small run of flexi discs that came with the NUTS! Fanzine. Check that out below. The band's EP, the late 2010 favorite Beyond Living, was recently released to iTunes for the first time (vinyl only before that) as well. Milk Music also recently made their Primavera performance available for download via WFMU.
Milk Music played this year's Great Escape festival in Brighton, West Sussex, UK in May 2012. The 2103 edition goes down May 16-18, 2013, and like this year will probably have 300+ artists at over 30 venues . Early bird tickets are on sale. No 2013 lineup yet though.
Nude Beach, who play with Milk Music at their 285 Kent show on 7/23, will meanwhile play both tonight (6/28) with White Lung at Tommy's Tavern and Friday (6/29) with The Young at 285 Kent. The show is the third of three shows for The Young in the NYC area (they play Maxwell's tonight, 6/28).
Milk Music tour dates and a stream of "Violence Now" is below.

Just a reminder that Sweden's Terrible Feelings are in town tonight playing Death by Audio with Death First, Plastic Cross and These Days. If you can't make tonight's show, the band will be back on the tail end of their US tour, playing Acheron on June 30. All tour dates are listed below.
Since we last wrote about them, Terrible Feelings released their new album, Shadows. While the songs are hook-laden and very catchy, you can feel the punk DNA in there. The band have made fans of JEFF the Brotherhood and Fucked Up on European tours and I am told they have a killer live show. You can download two tracks off the album and stream the whole record below via a Spotify widget.
Meanwhile, Terrible Feelings' Derranged Records labelmates White Lung are currently wrapping up a short stint out with Ceremony but will be in NYC on June 28 for a show at Tommy's Tavern with Nude Beach, Casanovas in Heat, California X. The Vancouver band make strident pedal-to-the-metal, punk-fueled rock with strong vocals from singer Mish Way. You can stream their album, Sorry, at the bottom of this post. All tour dates are listed below.
