Mikal Cronin @ Bowery Ballroom 5/5/2015
Mikal Cronin

Mikal Cronin celebrated the release of his third album, the factually-titled MCIII, at Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday night (5/5), part of his current tour. While the new album is resplendent in strings, Mikal and band played it straight, though keyboards did fill in some of the orchestrations. (His mostly-new band includes drummer Nick Murray who spent some time last year in Thee Oh Sees.) Pictures and setlist from the show -- including openers EZTV and William Tyler -- are in this post.

In other news, Mikal got some help from Hot Tub hosts Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal for his video for "Turn Around." Made with the JASH comedy group, it's a shot-for-shot remake of Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn" video and features cameos from comedians Paul Scheer, Jonah Ray, Real Estate's Matt Mondanile and Mikal's old bandmate Ty Segall. The video has Imbruglia's seal of approval and you can watch that, along with Cronin's recent performance on Conan, below.

Mikal will be back in NYC this summer for the 2015 4Knots Festival on July 11 at Pier 84 in Hudson River Park, which also has Twin Peaks, Meatbodies and more on the bill as well. All upcoming tour dates for Mikal Cronin are listed, along with videos and more pics from his Bowery show, below...
