John Maus at Glasslands - 5/9/11 (via Contrast and Compare)
John Maus

John Maus (not to be confused with the John Maus who just sadly passed away) played Glasslands last night (5/9) with Gary War, Holy Shit, DJ International Tapes, and DJ WEIRD MAGIC. It was one of just three dates that Maus had/has scheduled in middle May, the next being 5/13 in LA on Maus's home coast. How was Glasslands? Bill, who didn't really know anything about John going in, tweeted, "it was just him onstage with canned backing but it was 4real, unlike, say, How To Dress Well bs. Still, he played too long." A video from the show is below.

If you missed it, look for Maus when he returns to the same exact Brooklyn venue on the date of his new LP's release. We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves is out via Ribbon Music on June 28th.

The next Glasslands show is also part of a tour with Puro Instinct, and actually one of two new NYC dates: there's Glasslands on 6/28 with Geneva Jacuzzi (tickets) and also Mercury Lounge on 6/29 (tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon). All dates are listed below.
