Talk Normal @ Cake Shop on NYE…
Talk Normal

“The Cake Shop, so deemed because it apparently sells cake, contained within it the pure essence of hipster, from its vintage vinyl chairs to its free PBR to its nerdy patrons in bangs, white-boy afros, skinny jeans, baby doll dresses and berets to its basement bar where hipsters gathered around to hear the agonizing alien death moans of the androgynous lead singer of The Screaming Females. Ethan and Roland showed up at a quarter to midnight, I introduced them to Hunter and Yulia, and they quickly disappeared. At the stroke of, The Screaming Females revved up their screeching machines and prepared to unleash their unbearable dissonance. Lead singer went,”Yeah, it’s 2010…whatever…” Hunter, Yulia, and I clinked red plastic cups and Budweiser bottle, and Ethan and I exchanged a wave from where he stood alongside the band set.” [Taking Pictures of Dogs]

Ha. Talk Normal, Screaming Females (who’re both pictured here, above and below) and Frankie & the Outs (who aren’t) played New Year’s Eve 2009 at the Cake Shop.

Frankie & the Outs, who also played a NYE show at the Cameo on the same night, have a number of shows coming up in NYC, Austin (for SXSW) and elsewhere. One of them is opening for Dun Dum Girls at Mercury Lounge. That show is now on sale.

Talk Normal will be at SXSW too – they have a show set up for March 18th with The Carrots, Tyvek, Grass Widow, Wet Hair and “many more.” After the fest, Talk Normal travel with Xiu Xiu and Tune-Yards to open a number of shows on their tour together (but not the NYC one which also recently went on sale). Those dates and more details are below.

SXSW 2010, which will feature a just-announced opening show by Spoon at Stubb’s, has filled out its lineup with many more bands over the past few weeks. The full and growing list is on their official schedule.

Screaming Females (who will NOT be at SXSW because they plan to record their new album during that time) play a showcase for their label, Don Giovanni Records, at Bowery Ballroom on February 6th (tickets still on sale). Also on the bill are forgetters, Shellshag, The Measure (SA), Black Wine, Groucho Marxists and JEFF The Brotherhood, who tour with Screaming Females into February.
