YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN
Having released their third album, Dirt, earlier this year (stream below), Toronto’s Yamantaka // Sonic Titan will be on the road soon with their one-of-a-kind live show. Dates include some East Coast U.S. shows, including Brooklyn’s Elsewhere Zone One on October 21 with Russian Baths and Gold Dime. Head Here for their full tour schedule.
Elton John has added 25 more North American dates to his lengthy farewell tour, which currently includes eleven upcoming NYC-area shows.
Phil Lesh has announced Phil-O-Ween 2018, a three-night run happening at the Capitol Theatre beginning on Halloween night. They’ve got special guests (Twiddle and Jimmy Herring from Widespread Panic) lined up too.
Brooklyn punks Krimewatch have two upcoming hometown shows at the moment, both of which look pretty interesting. They’re opening one of the Systematic Death 35th anniversary shows at Saint Vitus in October, and they’re also playing The New York Asia Music Festival at Trans-Pecos on November 10 with Necronomidol, Late Cambrian, Oyasumi Hologram, Love Spread, Miwa Gemini, Mevius, Opus Travelers, and a solo set by Rei Imaizumi from Necronomidol (more info and set times here). Krimewatch released their very solid self-titled album this year, but their live show is really where it’s at. You can get a taste of that from the newly-released double video for “Crybaby” and “Dreams of Peace,” which was shot on their last West Coast tour:
