Broken Social Scene @ Masonic Temple, Oct 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Broken Social Scene will be releasing their new, as-yet-untitled album on May 4th, 2010 on Arts & Crafts. Co-produced by the band and Tortoise's John McEntire at Soma Studios in Chicago, with additional recording at Giant Studio and The Schvitz Studio in Toronto, the new album is the follow up to their acclaimed self-titled record, released in 2005.It's hard to believe that the last BBS record came out more than four years ago. The new album's release will be accompanied by a short set of tour dates in North America and Europe. One of those will be "An Evening With Broken Social Scene" at NYC's Webster Hall on May 7th. Tickets to that are on Arts & Crafts presale now. (as are tickets for their L.A. and San Francisco shows). NYC tickets go on general sale Saturday, 2/16 at noon.
Tickets for BSS's Toronto Centre Island (Olympic Island) show on June 19th are also on sale. Toronto Island Concert will be a full-day festival with Band of Horses and co-headlined by Pavement. More acts are TBA.

"On any given occasion [Do Make Say Think] are a formidable proposition, but tonight [at an October show in London,] their core six members are joined by a revolving cast of guests. All ten musicians appear across the evening, providing instrumentation and support for both the support bands here. Charles Spearin's Happiness Project and Ohad Benchitrit's Years; in essence, side-projects from the full time labour of the headliners. However, there's a genuine sense amongst the crowd that this isn't a typical 'headline + support' concert as such, but rather a collective of musicians who happen to perform under various guises, and are doing so tonight." [INDROSSI]Do Make Say Think and the Happiness Project played their third NYC show together last night at Bowery Ballroom (11/29). The night before that it was in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg (both were with Years). Two months earlier they shared a bill at a venue located at Columbia University (no Years).

Charles Spearin of Do Make Say Think blowin' the horn for Broken Social Scene @ Mercury (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Do Make Say Think has scheduled a few dates in the coming months, including 9/10 at the Miller Theatre at Columbia University (tickets are on sale) as well as Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom on November 28th and 29th respectively (ticket info forthcoming). And DMST will keep it family, having invited along Charles Spearin's Happiness Project as well as guitarist Ohad Benchetrit's project, Years. Both released their LPs earlier this year on Arts & Crafts. (note: Years is not playing the Miller Theatre show).
Meanwhile, one Do Make Say Think side project will NOT be out on the road with the band, but ARE on their way to NYC in the coming months. The band Lullaby Arkestra features Justin Small of DMST and his wife Kat Taylor-Small, and they are a lot less crescendo, and a lot more melodic heaviness akin to Big Business, Tweakbird, or NYC's Orphan. Lullabye Arkestra are currently prepping their sophomore LP, Threats / Worship, out on Vice Records on Sept 1 and have scheduled an NYC show at Glasslands on 8/13. Check out "We Fuck The Night" downloadable above.
