Brian Jonestown Massacre @ Terminal 5 (more by Lori Baily)
Brian Jonestown

Led by enigmatic provocateur and sonic visionary Anton Newcomb, the Brian Jonestown Massacre are a controversial, independent and musically brilliant outfit who have attracted a legion of fans through their wildly futuristic psychedelic rock.

To coincide with the release of their 13th and latest album, My Bloody Underground, cult favourites The Brian Jonestown Massacre embarked on an August 2008 Australian tour. Highlighting this tour, is a LIMITED edition live CD from the 30th August show at The Hi-Fi in Melbourne, Australia. [The Hi-Fi Live]

As previously mentioned, Primal Scream will be visiting the US in March. That means shows in NYC, Philly, Toronto, Austin, and California (tickets). The West Coast dates are March 16th (LA) and March 17th (San Francisco), and both include The Brian Jonetown Massacre playing as opener. The opener for the March 28th Webster Hall show hasn't been announced, but I doubt it will also be Brian Jonestown. Instead, Anton Newcombe and gang will headline their own, even bigger show at Terminal 5 on April 1st. It's the same NYC venue they played over the summer. Since then they also played ATP NY and a smaller show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Tickets for the new show go on sale Friday. All dates for both bands below...
