Writer/photographer Laina Dawes has just released her new book, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? A Black Woman's Life and Liberation in Heavy Metal. The book recounts her journey as a black woman in heavy metal and examines these genres with respect to racial and gender issues. Its a fascinating read, and available now via Bazillion Points. Reccommended.
Laina has seen her fair share of shows this year and as such, we asked her to chime in on her favorites of 2012. Her thoughts and photos are below.
Cat Power @ Hammerstein Ballroom - 10/23/2012 (pic via supergalaxy)
Less than a week after Primus made things 3-D, Cat Power brought laser lights and her tour with Willis Earl Beal and X-Ray Eyeballs to Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC last night (10/23). How was the show? Hopefully nobody fell out of the balcony. The setlist is below...
Willis Earl Beal @ Pitchfork Festival 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Chicago's Willis Earl Beal has signed-on to support Cat Power on a few of her October North American tour dates, including tonight's Hammerstein Ballroom show (10/23) that also has Xray Eyeballs as an opener (and a few other dates). Tickets are still available.
Willis Earl Beal, who JUST cancelled a headlining NYC show at Bowery Ballrooms earlier this month, had to cancel a few more of his own shows to make this tour work, and you can check out his complete 2012 schedule below, along with a video for "Monotony."
Willis Earl Beal at MHOW, May 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Willis Earl Beal was to play Bowery Ballroom tonight (10/9) but that show has been canceled and so far no explanation has been given as to why. No word on the remaining dates of his tour, which are listed below.
In happier news, last week we mentioned that Willis released a free EP, Principles of a Protagonist, which can be downloaded via BitTorrent client uTorrent. It's the soundtrack for his forthcoming, previously-mentioned animated short of the same name.

Following 285 Kent's lead, as of October 1, 2012, five-year-old Williamsburg DIY spot Death by Audio is now a NO SMOKING venue. Our clothes thank you.
Speaking of, Great Design says S. 2nd & Kent is "Where Sound is Born." No show at DbA tonight, btw.
You can also make money off the new Death Grips album.
Speaking of BitTorrent and Death Grips, the rap-noise crew are the most downloaded artist on BitTorrent for the first half of 2012, with over 34 million downloads, beating Counting Crows, DJ Shadow, and Pretty Lights.

Willis Earl Beal at MHOW, May 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Willis Earl Beal has just announced a fall tour that includes a NYC stop on October 9 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are not on sale yet but you can keep checking Ticketmaster. All WEB tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
Meanwhile, Beal has made an animated short film based on his Principals of a Protagonist novella he made back in 2010. The film uses illustrations by Beal and recordings of songs from his Acousmatic Sorcery album as the soundtrack. Says the artist:
I envisioned it becoming a film. If you don't envision something as actually happening and being in action then there's no motivation to do it. Everything I do is cinematic. Everything I do I imagine what it would look like in the context of cinema- whether writing a song, writing a story or watching a movie and imagining myself in the role of the protagonist walking down the street. The movie for me is amniotic fluid.Look for Principals of a Protagonist in September when it will stream on Beal's new website. In the meantime get a feel for what it may look like via his "Evening's Kiss" video which is watchable below, along with a list of his upcoming tour dates.

The 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival kicked off in Union Park on Friday (7/13) afternoon after heavy rain slightly delayed the opening of the gates. Rain continued to be a theme of the day, but it couldn't stop the fun. Local garage rock greats Outer Minds played the first set, and the first great set of the day, followed by Jana Hunter's Lower Dens across the park which was the first set streamed live. The webcast continues today, Sunday, with Ty Segall, Real Estate, Chavez, Vampire Weekend and more.
More recaps from the weekend coming. For now, here are the pictures from Friday. One set is on BV Chicago. Another is here on BrooklynVegan, and they continue below...
Willis Earl Beal at Bowery Ballroom in April (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
The Weeksville Garden Party, a series of free shows in Weeksville Heritage Center which happen every Saturday in July, has been expanded. You already knew that Spoek Mathambo (who played LPR last night) will be playing the one this Saturday (7/14), and since we last spoke the lineup for that show has been expanded. It also includes FlyLo associate/bass wizard Thundercat and R&B singer Georga Anne Muldrow, whose new Madlib-produced LP is one of the best of its genre right now. Georgia Anne will be performing with special guest Dudley Perkins, who she recently toured with. Doors for Saturday's show are at 4 PM.
Then, on July 21, The Weeksville Heritage Center will be graced by Willis Earl Beal, who has yet to reschedule that free show with Bobby Womack but this one should tide us over until then. The show is also with Krystie Warren. No show has been announced as of this post for Saturday, July 28.
Speaking of that Bobby Womack show, if you missed it, just when it looked like things were getting better and Bobby was going to play a MHOW show on July 3, he ended up canceling that one too. Hopefully Bobby will get well soon and finally make his way back to NYC. Check out this recent interview he did with NPR where he spoke about what's been going on:
"Before me, there was a higher and stronger supreme being that put me in the position to have that talent," he adds. "I've seen [drugs] take away my friends, from Wilson Pickett to James Brown to Michael Jackson, and I can just go on naming. I say, if I'm still here, God must still have a purpose for me."The current Weeksville Garden Party schedule is below...
Bon Iver at Bonnaroo 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Bon Iver recorded an iTunes session at East West studios which is available exclusively from iTunes starting today. It includes six tracks off 2011's great Bon Iver, Bon Iver and a cover of Bjork's "Who Is It?," which the band has played live many times. You can stream the session's opening track, "Beth/Rest" below.
As mentioned, Bon Iver is touring internationally throughout the summer and fall and will come to NYC on September 19 and 20 at Radio City Music Hall. Both of those shows are now sold out. All Bon Iver dates, including a recently announced European leg, are listed below.
Speaking of Bjork, she's teaming up with the New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Children's Museum of Manhattan to create interactive educational programs for middle school-aged students based on her Biophilia app. Speaking about the program, Bjork said:
"It's not a bookish thing. You cannot learn to make music from a book." "I love books; they're like the best ever," she added. "There are things you can only learn from books, but it's also important to introduce the physical aspects. So for me, it was very important to make, somehow, music education that was physical." (via NY Daily News)Both Bon Iver and Bjork are set to play Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway this summer (Aug 7-11) with The Stone Roses, Refused, The Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould (performing Copper Blue), Chromatics, Cloud Nothings, John Maus, Purity Ring, Saint Etienne, SBTRKT, Screaming Females, St. Vincent, and more. Full list below.
Way Out West (Aug 9-11) in Gothenberg, Sweden features many of the same bands as Oya like Bon Iver, Refused, Afghan Whigs, St. Vincent, Purity Ring, John Maus, and Bob Mould in addition to Blur, Wilco, I Break Horses, Hot Chip, The War On Drugs, Mark Lanegan Band, Adolescents, Swans, and more. Check out the spotify playlist. The full lineup is listed below.
As mentioned, the reunited Mazzy Star is set to play both of those European festivals. Full lineups and the Bon Iver dates and song, below...
Willis Earl Beal at Bowery Ballroom in April (more by Toby Tenebaum)
Bobby Womack and Willis Earl Beal's free Central Park show, which was set to happen on June 7, has been postponed due to illness. The makeup date is TBA but they "plan to reschedule this show in mid-July with both artists still on the bill." Stay tuned for more info. This comes less than a week after Bobby posted to his facebook page that he successfully underwent surgery and does not have cancer. Hope all is well with the recovery, Bobby!
Meanwhile, Bobby Womack has been preparing his new album, The Bravest Man in the Universe, for a June 12 release via XL. It's Womack's first album of original material since 1994 and was co-produced by Damon Albarn (who he worked with on Gorillaz's Plastic Beach) and XL label head/record producer Richard Russell. So far he's revealed the tracks, "Please Forgive My Heart," "The Bravest Man in the Universe," and most recently, "Dayglo Reflection," which features Lana Del Rey. You can check all of those out below.
Speaking of Willis Earl Beal, he was arrested over the weekend after his performance at the Le Guess Who? Festival in the Netherlands for allegedly kicking a homeless man in the face (via Pitchfork). In a YouTube video (which you can watch below), Willis said his goodbyes to to the crowd with the following:
Because of a few bad apples, we all miss out on one more glorious, fantastic, lovely performance. I love you, and I even love the guy whose face I kicked in. I love him, too. He's a good guy! He's just drunk, a little.He's since been released from custody and will continue his tour.

Willis Earl Beal had me at his opening line, "I am gonna sing you some songs and then I am gonna get off the Goddamned stage!"...He's a born performer and for the duration of his hour long set, he sang like a man possessed! Think of the vocals of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell on You" and add a whole lot of soul with an addictively entertaining stage presence and you've got Willis Earl Beal. [accordingtog]Willis Earl Beal opened for Wu Lyf at Bowery Ballroom on April 27, the second of two NYC shows (Music Hall of Williamsburg was the night before) and part of a string of shows supporting the UK band following their two-weekend sets at Coachella (pictures from week 2). More pictures from the Bowery Ballroom show are in this post.
Willis Earl Beal mainly has European dates scheduled in the upcoming months, but he'll be in the US for a few festival dates and a free NYC show at Central Park Summerstage on June 7 opening for Bobby Womack.
All Willis Earl Beal dates are listed below alongside more pics from the Bowery Ballroom show...

WU LYF @ MHOW
Manchester's WU LYF stormed Brooklyn for rousing renditions of highlights from their excellent debut Go Tell Fire to the Mountain... While the band was limited to brief material (this is why bands with one album get overplayed and burnt out too fast), they still poured endless energy into each track and believe it or not, the growling vocals from a visceral Ellery Roberts continued beyond the songs and into the chatter setting an even deep tone to the show. "Spitting Blood" and "Concrete Gold" were delivered without a hitch, and a stellar "Heavy Pop" brought the main set to a close before the band returned for a laid back "Brooklyn Girls" and a night ending thunderous execution of "We Bros". -[omg-nyc]Wu Lyf played one of two NYC shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 4/26, where the UK band was joined by Chicago native Willis Earl Beal. Wu Lyf, who were on their way back from Coachella, completed their US run and are back in the UK . The band haven't announced any new dates yet -- North America, UK, or anywhere else..
As for opener Willis, Amanda Hatfield says:
Willis Earl Beal is incredible - he alternately sat and played a guitar on his lap or sang over tape reels, and even with the sort of silly affectations - one black glove, dark glasses indoors - he blew me away. Dynamic performer + amazing voice. Plus, I'm totally down with anyone who starts a set by reading a line of Bukowski.Beal is off to Europe this week, but hopefully he'll have some more stateside dates for us soon (not that there's been any lack of them in NYC lately). Pictures of Beal and Wu Lyf at Music Hall, plus Beal's European tour dates, are below.

As you may remember from the past couple of years, "Summerstage" now encompasses more than just Central Park, but Central Park Summerstage will still always be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the series. Here's the 2012 schedule. Check it out below...

Rahzel & Kenny Muhammad @ BAM
The Questlove-curated "Shuffle Culture" debuted at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House last night (4/19). As promised, a rotating cast of performers including Deerhoof, the Metropolis Ensemble, DJ Jeremy Ellis, D.D. Jackson and Sasha Grey (not to be confused with Gray) graced the stage at different times, performing in 5 to 10 minute bursts before transitioning into the next act. I had little idea what to expect going in and I think the show benefits from the blind approach (aka don't click below if you're going tonight).
The two-show run concludes tonight with Willis Earl Beal and Gray (not to be confused with Grey) replacing Reggie Watts. Both should fit well into the atmosphere of the gig. Tickets are still on sale.
More about the show and pictures are below...

Willis Earl Beal @ Mercury Lounge
Willis Earl Beal is on a tour which brought him to NYC for a Glasslands show on 3/29 with Zulu Winter and a Mercury Lounge show on 4/1 with She Keeps Bees and Fenster (who play again at Knitting Factory on 4/4). Pictures from the Mercury Lounge show are in this post. More below.
That tour was supposed to include an opening slot at SBTRKT's Webster Hall show tonight (4/3) (which is sold out, Sepalcure is still opening, and will be streaming online) but Willis has cancelled tonight's show due to illness. The official statement reads, "Unfortunately Willis is sick and his doctor has ordered him not to perform tonight. The rest of the tour dates are on as planned." Bummer.
UPDATE: DJ Jim E Stack, who played with SBTRKT last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg, will open for SBTRKT in Beal's place tonight.
The rest of that tour includes dates with WU LYF that brings both bands to NYC on MHOW on 4/26 and Bowery Ballroom on 4/27. Willis will also be back in NYC for the Questlove-curated Shuffle Culture Fest at BAM which goes down on April 19 and 20.
Willis also just made a video for "Montony" off his debut LP, Acousmatic Sorcery, which is out now on Hot Charity. That video, updated dates, and more pics from the 4/1 show at Mercury Lounge, below...

The press release say:
The 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Chicago's Union Park Friday, July 13 - Sunday, July 15! Seven years in, this independently run three-day event has consistently proven to be one of the most welcoming, comfortable, reasonably priced and rewarding weekends of music around.The full Chicago festival lineup so far, including Willis Earl Beal who we recently hosted in the same city (where Willis happens to also live), is listed below...
A tremendously focused and thoughtfully curated event, the Pitchfork Music Festival has historically introduced emerging bands while also honoring a great number of already beloved and internationally renowned acts. This year continues with that high standard and welcomes Vampire Weekend, Feist, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Hot Chip, AraabMUZIK, A$AP Rocky, The Field, Liturgy, Kendrick Lamar, Grimes, Cloud Nothings, Tim Hecker, and Willis Earl Beal! But this is only the beginning! There are more than 30 acts to still be announced.
Additionally, we are excited to announce that the Pitchfork Music Festival will not be raising ticket prices in 2012! Our goal has always been to create an affordable atmosphere with music at its focus, and do so in a way that is sustainable and exciting. So why raise ticket prices if you don't need to, right? Tickets for the 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival go on sale Friday, March 9 at 12 PM CST, with single-day tickets for $45 and a limited number of three-day passes for $110! Based on years past, three-day passes will sell out very quickly. Tickets will be available on the festival website.
In addition to its musical offerings, the Pitchfork Music Festival also features a wide array of other activities for its 50,000 attendees of all ages from 45 states and 26 countries to easily enjoy. With 50 individual vendors, as well as specialty fairs, the fest not only supports local businesses and economy, but also promotes the Chicago arts community as a whole.
Willis Earl Beal in Chicago (more by Zach Pollack)
Chicago singer/songwriter Willis Earl Beal, who is opening a number of dates on SBTRKT's upcoming tour, but not any of the NYC shows, has been announcing a few shows he'll be playing in NYC surrounding the tour. We already mentioned his Glasslands show (3/29) opening for Zulu Winter (tickets). He's since announced two more. A couple days after Glasslands, he'll headline his own NYC show at Mercury Lounge on April 1, and after his run on the SBTRKT tour ends, he'll open five dates on WU LYF's tour including Music Hall of Williamsburg on 4/26 and Bowery Ballroom show on 4/27.
