Weekend @ SXSW 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
So we've been wondering what was up with this Weekend show at Cameo on Tuesday (9/25) for a while, as to why the San Francisco band was playing this one off NYC date. Well, now we know -- the band has moved to Brooklyn. Because clearly they thought they weren't paying enough rent in SanFran. Nonetheless, I am personally excited at the opportunity to see the band play more often. Welcome to the neighborhood, guys!
And those opportunities basically start now. In addition to Tuesday's show at Cameo with ERAAS and Woodsman (tickets are still available), Weekend play 285 Kent on October 4 with Cold Showers (who were terrific last night at Glasslands and also play WIERD on 10/2) and will be joining the throngs during CMJ.
The band have also posted of rough mix of "Sirens" which will feature on the band's sophomore album which will be out in 2013. Stream that below, along with a list of all dates and the Cameo show flyer.

DOWNLOAD: Dustin Wong - "Here We Come 2012" (MP3)
As mentioned, Akron/Family are currently on a tour with Bad Weather California that brings both bands to NYC on Saturday (1/21) at 285 Kent. Since the Brooklyn show was announced, Dustin Wong (ex-Ponytail) was added to the bill and advanced tickets went on sale. Bad Weather California (more about them below) also play Mercury Lounge with Woodsman while they're in town (1/22).
Dustin Wong is releasing his second LP, Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads on February 21 via Thrill Jockey. The album art and tracklist is below. He recently posted a song to his soundcloud titled, "Here We Come 2012." It's unclear if this has any ties to the new album but you can stream it below and download it above.
Dustin has also been added as an opener to Hospitality's record release show at Glasslands (2/3). That bill also includes Glass Ghost. Tickets are still available.
Speaking of Akron/Family, member Dana Janssen who creates solo material as Dana Buoy, has been added as an opener to some dates on Youth Lagoon's headlining tour. Dana will open the Bowery Ballroom show on March 27. There is still no opener announced for the MHOW show (3/28). Both NYC shows are sold out (but you can still get tickets to Youth Lagoon's upcoming show with Death Cab). All Dana Buoy dates below.
Akron/Family's tourmates Bad Weather California will be the first band (other than Akron/Family) to release a record on Akron/Family's Family Tree Records, when their album Sunkissed comes out on the label on February 21. The album was produced by Akron/Family member Seth Olinsky. Stream the album track, "You're My Friend," HERE and check out a Brass Tree Sessions video and an album promo video below. The artwork and tracklist are also below. After the Akron/Family tour, BWC have a bunch of dates of their own, including SXSW. Those are all listed below.
All dates, stream album art and tracklist below...
Sun Araw at Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Erez Avissar)
You have two chances to check out Sun Araw Band before the clock strikes 2012. The first is in Rio de Janeiro at the Novas Frequências Fest on December 7th. The next is two days later in Brooklyn at 285 Kent on 12/9 with Regal Degal, Heatwave, CSC Funk Band, and a Prince Rama DJ set.
Prince Rama just finished a batch of dates with Indian Jewelry including one at the Mohawk in Austin with Melt Banana (which we posted pics from HERE). They're now down in Miami for Art Basel and touring their way home. As previously mentioned, Prince Rama play Glasslands on 2/23 with Gary War (tickets), BUT they've also not surprisingly scheduled another show much sooner. One day after they DJ at 285 Kent they'll open for Hooray for Earth, along with Woodsman, at Public Assembly. Tickets are on sale for that too.
More tour dates and videos for "Impluvium" and "At Delphi" from Sun Araw's recent Ancient Romans LP are below.
Woodsman @ SXSW 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
"After spreading the gospel in the Rhinoceropolis DIY scene of their native Denver, Woodsman unleashed a steady torrent of brain-burning 7"s and cassettes last year with the help of Mexican Summer and Lefse. On their new full-length, Rare Forms, Woodsman take full advantage of one of Germany's finest exports: the mechanical, "motorik" 4/4, or what Neu! drummer Klaus Dinger once called the "Apache-Beat." Still, their music evokes something more bucolic than the steel and asphalt of the autobahn. Warm guitar tones, distant melodies, grainy feedback loops, and shamanistic drumming summon panoramic landscapes and mystical milieus-- images, I think, that would come to mind even if the band hadn't adopted a pastoral namesake." [Altered Zones]Woodsman, who are set to release their upcoming EP, Mystic Places, on October 25 via Fire Talk, have a few shows coming up including two in NYC this week. They play Cake Shop on Thursday (8/25) with Alex Bleeker and the Freaks, Orca Team and Flower Orgy and Shea Stadium on Friday (8/26) with Steve Gunn, Sacred Harp, and GDFX. They also play a New Haven, CT show on August 31 at BAR. Grab two MP3s from the upcoming EP above, or stream the same songs with all tour dates, below...
Evan Dando at The Bell House (more by Graeme Flegenheimer)
Evan Dando & The Lemonheads have a few random upcoming dates scheduled. The Lemonheads will share a bill with The Canon Logic on April 28th at Maxwell's in Hoboken. Tickets are still available. You can also catch Josh Lattanzi of The Lemonheads at Bowery Ballroom on May 26 & 27 as part of the Bob Dylan tribute that will also include members of the Strokes, Hold Steady, etc, etc.
All other upcoming Evan Dando dates are in other countries at the moment, including a June 16th Evan & Juliana Hatfield show in Toronto for the NXNE festival which, like Brooklyn's own multi-venue festival Northside, recently expanded its lineup. Some of the other bands playing are in the title of this post. The rest are listed below.
All Dando-related dates and some videos below too...
The second annual Hopscotch Festival will go down in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, across 12 different venues with over 135 bands, from September 8th through 10th. The lineup this year runs the gamut of independent music... from traditional indie staples (The Flaming Lips, Guided By Voices, Superchunk) to southern-inflected rock (Drive-By Truckers) to noise (Prurient) to hip hop (Beans) to garage (Jeff The Brotherhood) to funk (Budos Band) to metal (Krallice), and everywhere in between (Swans, Rhys Chatham, etc etc). Tickets are currently on sale. Full lineup is below.
Hopscotch happens almost three months after Guided By Voices play a Brooklyn Northside Festival show in McCarren Park (tickets) which is one day after Beirut plays a Northside Festival show on the same McCarren Park stage with... Sharon Van Etten (though she may have been accidentally announced at one point, they officially kept her placement on the bill under wraps until after Saturday's Music Hall of Williamsburg show). Tickets for Beirut/SVE are still on sale, and another opener will be added too.
