YEAH YEAH YEAHS
Yeah Yeah Yeahs returned from hiatus late last year, and their shows have been great but they’re still few and far between, so any chance to see them is worth taking. They’re playing Montreal’s Osheaga this Friday (8/3), and they just announced that they’ll play the Northeast US again at Philly’s Goose Island 215 Block Party on 9/8 with Twin Peaks and Joey Purp (tickets on sale 8/3 at 10 AM). Their only other upcoming date is day two of California’s Ohana Festival (the same day as Eddie Vedder, Liz Phair, Johnny Marr, and more) later in September.
Former Majical Cloudz frontman Devon Welsh is releasing his his solo debut, Dream Songs, in August. He debuted a new live band, and songs from that album, at a Brooklyn show in June, and now he’s announced that he’ll be back for another Brooklyn show in September, at National Sawdust on 9/16. (Majical Cloudz played a memorable show at the same venue in 2015.)
SHANNON & THE CLAMS
California garage rockers Shannon & the Clams just played Panorama (and a Panorama aftershow) this past weekend, and now they expanded their tour to include two shows at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg during their fall Northeast run. All dates and tickets here. Earlier this year, they released their new album Onion on Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound label.
Another artist who expanded their tour after just having played Panorama is Japanese Breakfast, who added dates, including a three-night New Year’s run in Philly, plus stops in Asbury Park, Brooklyn, and more.
NIGHT BIRDS (with RADIOACTIVITY and more)
NJ skate/surf punks Night Birds are releasing a new mini-LP, Roll Credits, on September 21 via Fat Wreck Chords, and lead single “My Dad is the BTK” is exactly the kind of ripping, melodic punk that Night Birds have always done so well. They reunited with Mike Hunchback, who was in the band from 2009-2012, and he produced and played on this album, and he’ll be playing live with them for the first time in 6 years (it’s Night Birds’ first time touring as a five-piece). Their tour includes two shows with fellow melodic punk greats Radioactivity (Brooklyn’s Market Hotel on 10/19 and Baltimore’s Ottobar on 10/20), two home state shows at Asbury Brewery, and more. The Brooklyn show also has Spiritual Cramp opening. All dates and more info here. Stream the new track:
