Cold Cave

Tonight (9/10) is Fashion's Night Out in the Bowery (one of many Fashion Week events happening in the city this week), which, aside from being a great chance to get a new pair of slacks, is your doorway to a free performance by Cold Cave at Rogan Store at 10pm. The flyer is posted below.

The recent Matador signees will put out their debut LP, Love Comes Close, on November 3rd. Two tracks from that are posted above.

The band's upcoming schedule includes two other NYC shows: they open for Faust at MHOW on October 1st, a show that's part of WFMU Fest at the venue.

They're also opening for Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. at Terminal 5 on November 21st.

Sonic Youth, labelmates with Cold Cave, were recently forced to reschedule their upcoming west coast tour (and cancel two shows) because Lee Renaldo fractured his wrist while playing tennis. "Tickets for the original dates will be honored. If necessary, refunds will be available at the point of purchase." New and upcoming dates are below...

Marnie Stern

Alexander McQueen is no doubt up to his neck in his fabulous fall 2009 collection, with Paris Fashion Week just weeks away. But the legendary designer set aside a little time for the Cut to talk about one of 2009's most exciting collaborations, his forthcoming Target collection. The line doesn't hit stores until March 4, but New Yorkers can purchase it next weekend. Yes, we are special. Target's McQ Market will run from Saturday, February 14 through Sunday, February 15 at St. John's Center on Houston Street. So don't celebrate Valentine's Day, celebrate McQueen. Now you have a reason to be excited for Valentine's Day...

Thom Yorke

Spank Rock is performing at a Unis & Anna Sheffeild party tonight (2/12) at Chloe (81 Ludlow St) (10pm - 3am)

The Duke Spirit are performing an an Alexander McQueen party on Friday (2/13) at 330 West St (8-11 p.m.) The Duke Spirit also play NYC-area shows on Sunday and Monday.

NY Magazine's Fashion Week party list includes performances and/or DJ sets by The Virgins (acoustic), James Murphy, Mandy Coon (2MANDYDJS), Mike Nouveau, Deakin (Animal Collective) (DJ set), and White Magic (DJ set).

Santos Party House is hosting a Fashion Week party (DOSSIER / NOMIA) on Sunday (2/15) with DJ Holy Ghost and a live set by Lemonade (downstairs 9pm... 21+).

A rumor is going around that Thom Yorke is here and possibly performing, but Men.Style.com says...

I've got some good news and some bad news for all you fashion, music, and fashion music fans. The bad news first: Despite the rumors Twittering around the Interwebs, Thom Yorke will not, in fact, be playing tomorrow's Rag & Bone show. The good news, however, is that the Radiohead singer did "curate" the tunes that'll accompany the models down the runway. Guess he's returning the favor after the nice bomber jacket the lads hooked him up with for the Grammys. (Notably, Lil Wayne also wore the brand last Sunday--who knows, maybe he's hard at work on a playlist for Spring 2010.) In any case, autograph seekers should leave the Sharpies at home, as I'm told Yorke won't even be at the show. (I assume the same's true for Wayne.)
In other Thom Yorke news rumors, EW says that "Radiohead's publicist assures me that rumors of frontman Thom Yorke contributing music to McG's movie Terminator Salvation are, yep, just rumors -- something that everyone who's at all familiar with the respective oeuvres of Thom Yorke and McG already knew."

This is the second time Terminator Salvation came up recently. The first was because of Christian Bale freaking out.

Chloe & Ari

From Women's Wear Daily......

Cool chick Chloë Sevigny has loads of equally hip friends to call on when she decides to throw a party. But even she was surprised by the turnout at the bash she hosted at Webster Hall Monday night -- along with MAC Cosmetics, Self-Service Magazine and boutique Opening Ceremony -- to celebrate her debut collection for the store and featuring a special performance by British punk rock band The Slits. By the time she arrived around 10:30 p.m., there was a line snaking around the block, three deep with grungesters, alternative chicks and general misfits.

"Oh my God, did you see how many people are out there?" exclaimed Sevigny to Slits lead singer Ari-Up as they made their way backstage. "It's, like, thousands!"

Joanna Newsom @ a fashion show

Bao Nguyen reports, "...so I went to this Fashion Week party tonight for Built by Wendy at the Werkstatte Gallery. And Joanna Newsom did a surprise performance. The setlist was 'Bridges & Balloons', 'Esame', 'Peach Plum Pear', and 'Barbara'. Had to be less than a 100 people there." More of Bao's photos below...
