For 10 days the rooftop, located on 10th Avenue and 36th street, will be a perfect end of summer hang-out. High above the Hudson River, the MINI Rooftop NYC will feature a daytime wellness area and an open creative space. The daily events include a "Morning Sanctuary" (Yoga and Pilates in the open), "Studio Sessions" for talks and a nightly "Lounge and Celebration" Party. The not to be missed opening and closing parties are in collaboration with Dazed and Confused and V magazines. The location is built by Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner aka HWKN, an architecture firm focusing on the creation of innovative and responsible manmade environments.

It's been a busy month for Plants and Animals. They concluded an east coast swing that included some recorded performances for Pitchfork.tv, WERS in Boston (my favorite station growing up), and the "All Songs Considered" series for NPR (I'm a Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! guy). And now it has been confirmed that they will be part of the Central Park show on August 4th with The National and Yeasayer.
Plants and Animals have an upcoming west coast jaunt as well. All dates and a live video below...
Yeasayer @ MHOW (more by Ryan Muir)
Rabbit Habits is as musically jubilant and frenetic as the band's earlier albums, but underneath its trademark cacophony of alleyway accordions, xylophones, and honky-tonk piano is some of the darkest subject matter the band has tackled to date. [Popmatters]An old Man Man video below...

Chairlift @ Music Hall of Williamsburg, Valentine's Day (Feb 14) 2008
Chairlift opened that MGMT/Yeasayer show at Music Hall of Williamsburg back on February 14th. All three bands call Brooklyn their home. All three bands are friends, or at least Chairlift and MGMT are because the two bands are going to play some more shows with each other when they leave on a short tour together later this week. And although MGMT is not advertising a Brooklyn show, I'm pretty sure that the band "Tenspeed" (listed on Glasslands' schedule) that is playing with Chairlift at Glasslands TONIGHT (Monday April 7, 2008) is really MGMT in disguise (possibly now with a new member).
In related news, MGMT made this really cool 3-D video that you can actually use 3-D glasses to watch on the Internet. I am a sucker for 3-D stuff, and besides the fact that the video takes forever to load, I have to admit it's pretty cool. Find a pair of 3-D glasses (or make your own) and watch it at their site.

High Places @ Market Hotel, Brooklyn, NY (mercurialn)
For rock bands this is a great time to be weird and independent in Brooklyn. After years in which the sound of New York was defined by various shades of retro monochrome -- the new wave minimalism of the Strokes, the disco-punk of the Rapture and LCD Soundsystem, the moody Anglophilia of Interpol -- a new generation is making music that is indefinably eclectic and complex, and finding acclaim around the world.

Tickets are on sale for an April 11th Man Man & Yeasayer show at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. That makes Brooklyn the first stop on a larger tour the two bands are doing together. Man Man are also playing Bowery Ballroom one day earlier.

Hello Everyone.Last night's show at Bowery Ballroom (Feb 13, 2008) confirmed what I already thought: I don't like MGMT, but Yeasayer are amazing/awesome/insert-one-word-that-means-I-think-they-are-really-great-live-here. The synced-up, psychedelic visuals Yeasayer were projecting on to the wall behind them were done really well too. Overall you could tell the band had just been playing every night for a month. They were better/tighter than ever, there was a lot to look at, and Bowery Ballroom was a great fit for their big sound.
YEASAYER's first US tour w/ MGMT is finally winding down with one last sold out show in NYC and another sold out show in Philly. Thanks for all the support across the land and expect to see Yeasayer possibly in your area in April/May when they head out w/ Man Man. Promises to be a ball of thunder!
We do have another exciting announcement. YEASAYER will be performing on CONAN O'BRIEN this Friday,
MarchFebruary 15th! So make sure you are tuned in at around 1am for the one song set!
Again, thank you so much for the support and love. It fuels our mission.

Violens (playing their 7th-ever live show....as "Violens" anyway) were good too - especially a few of the songs.

Yeasayer @ Mercury Lounge, NYC - Dec 15, 2007 (Pavla Kopecna)
Yeasayer & MGMT played the smaller stage at Black Cat in DC last night (Jan 16, 2008), but demand was so high for the show that people were actually writing the venue to ask for the show to be moved to the bigger stage. The venue replied...
Thanks for writing and letting us know what’s happening over there at BYT in regards to the Yeasayer/MGMT show. We understand that this show, selling out the Backstage in advance as it did, would seem like a perfect opportunity for a last minute move to the Mainstage. In this case, we encouraged the bands to move this show upstairs. However, it was Yeasayer’s and MGMT’s decision to stay on the Backstage. In the end, we support their decision and believe it will be a great night.Both NYC shows are now also sold out - even the Bowery Ballroom one they just added. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings play a sold out show at the Black Cat tonight. Yeasayer and MGMT were both just on MTV news.
For those who did not get tickets, remember that advance tickets are available for Backstage shows through Ticketmaster and here at the Black Cat’s own box office.

Speaking of Yeasayer playing, they played New Years Eve in NYC too - a Myopenbar.com party at "a private sprawling decorated loft, for $15". Thanks to all those who sent me notice of the show - unfortunately they just all came while I was taking a few days off (aka I didn't know about it in time to post about it).

no need to worry, we'll get some keys for your keyboard
Yeasayer frontman Chris Keating got a little carried away towards the end of of their set Saturday night (Dec 15, 2007) at Mercury Lounge (a Friction party). A piece of one of those keys is currently living in my jacket pocket - a souvenier from the rockin' show that also had Chairlift, Team Robespierre & High Places on the bill. It was the third time I saw Yeasayer in 2007 (and ever), and I hope to catch them even more times in 2008. All photos in this post by Tod Seelie. More below....
Yeasayer @ the 2007 Crown Point Festival, NYC (CRED)

I still haven't seen MGMT. That could change on February 14th though. That's when they join Yeasayer for a home-town tour stop at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Tickets for that show go on sale today at noon.
