Native Korean Rock and the Fishnets COME DROWN WITH US
Native Korean Rock is a side project of Karen O?s comprised of a body of love songs written over the last two years, to be performed with a motley crew of NYC natives. Expect high drama, high stakes in two intimate performances. Does Native Korean Rock have anything to do with Yeah Yeah Yeahs? NO Are these the leaked demos of years ago? NO
Jack White & Jack Lawrence @ Terminal 5, Saturday night (Play Vicious)
Brendan Benson, Nick Zinner, Jack Lawrence & White - also Saturday (roxxan23)
Are people actually saying that Saturday night show was just OK??? It was absolutely ripping and jack white is one of the best guitarists alive. The guy was going crazy on stage. He was more into the show than anyone else in the place. The venue sucked, but who cares, no lines for beer. [Anonymous]Black Lips opened all three nights. More pictures, and Saturday night's Raconteurs setlist, below....
Speaking of Tiny Masters of Today shows...
June 5: Lightspeed Champion and Tiny Masters of Today Doing One for the Kids (and the unemployed)!Bell is playing Union Hall later that night. Lightspeed Champion is playing Maxwell's later that night.
What is Chancellor's day? It is an inexplicable school holiday on June 5 that only kids in New York get. To celebrate this year, Tiny Masters of Today are throwing a special afternoon party at Union Hall in Brooklyn.
Joining us for this first annual throwdown will be our friends from
England: Lightspeed Champion!!! Holy Cow! It is going to be awesome, it starts at 4 and ends at 6 so don't be late! Hey, there might even be special guests, you never know!
Scarlett Johansson's inspired Atco Records debut album ANYWHERE I LAY MY HEAD features her distinctive interpretations of ten songs by Tom Waits plus one original selection, "Song For Jo." Johansson co-wrote the track with TV On The Radio's David Andrew Sitek, who produced the album and lends his multi-instrumental talents throughout as well. She is also joined by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Sean Antanaitis from Celebration and others.
Friday April 11th @ LOCATION TO BE EMAILED TO TICKET HOLDERSMy first guess for "secret longtime buds band" was Black Lips, but they're on tour in Europe. Bradord is definitely "friends" with Grizzly Bear, but I don't know about "longtime", so my new guess is Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. I was also thinking maybe Deerhunter, though I'm not 100% sure why they wouldn't just say Deerhunter. Maybe it's because Deerhunter aren't supposed to play any other advertised shows before their next one in Brooklyn. Any other ideas?

I ended up seeing Atlas Sound twice at SXSW - first at the Pitchfork Party and then again the next day at Mess With Texas. Both were pretty good. Ryan Muir saw them at Mess With Texas too. More of his photos below....

So this was a very last minute idea, meaning I left New York for Baltimore at 12 PM on Saturday when gates had already opened at 10 AM. Not knowing at the time whether I had a pass waiting for me at the festival, I made the 4 hour drive, hindered by the beach bound crowd on the NJ Turnpike, armed with a Polaroid, 4 hours of sleep, and a sense of regret for missing the previous night's CSS show. I arrived at Pimilico Field at exactly 4 PM and after nearly being run over by Richard Branson on a golf cart, I made it just in time to catch the start of Peter Bjorn and John's set. I think their music plays better in a small club than a large festival type atmosphere especially when the entire crowd seems to be waiting for only one particular song that everyone can whistle to. Following Peter Bjorn and John was an high energy set from LCD Soundsystem that included a very unusual mosh pit where three people were doing their best Thom Yorke seizure dance....

Sonic Youth and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs co-headlined McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn two nights in a row this weekend (Friday and Saturday - Aug 11-12, 2006). I was at the Saturday show. Both bands sounded great, but the weather was even better. Not only didn't I bring a camera, I stood & sat near the back for the whole show. The four pics in this post are all stolen from people's Flickr who I'll credit in just a few minutes (I accidentally deleted where I got them from, but I wanted to get this post up - SORRY).

LAST NIGHT IN BOSTON
"The sun had started to set, the heat of the day has lost its grip on the city, and thousands – 10, 12, 15 thousand — were filing peacefully into City Hall Plaza long before the headlining Yeah Yeah Yeahs were due to take the stage. All the makings of a perfect rock and roll evening were in place as Brooklyn’s TV on the Radio filled downtown with an eclectic mix of organic post-punk guitars and almost trance-y rhythms devoid of the electronic embellishments that are such of big part of the alterna-indie band’s studio sound." [The Phoenix]

YEAH YEAH YEAHS @ COACHELLA 2006
"Um...I like Bowery Ballroom...It's still my favorite place to play. The Hammerstein and Roseland are a little bit...I dunno. I think we're still trying to get comfortable playing at that size. Not even the size of the stage or the size of the place, it's just that the biggest problem that I have is the bigger the place that you play, the further away the crowd is with all the barricades and the sort of ridiculous security measures that have to be in place. That’s definitely kind of hard for me. I like for people to be able to jump on stage." [Yeah Yeah Yeah Nick Zinner to Gothamist]
Coolfer talks about how Spitzer's radio payola investigation is currently having a negative effect on new artists. Instead of encouraging DJs to play what they want (as opposed to what they were paid to play), the payola scandal has DJs too nervous to play bands like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They're afraid it will LOOK like they're being paid off.
