The Bundles played as a trio, Dan Deacon date changed, Moonmen playing 1825 songs & other Cake Shop news
Fang Island and Dan Deacon are no longer sharing a bill at Cake Shop on Saturday, May 29th, one of the gigs that's a part of the venue's five-year celebration. That's because Dan Deacon's show has been moved up two nights to Thursday, May 27th, when he'll play with Eternal Summers, Big Troubles and Dustin Wong. (Dan also jams out in Red Hook Park on Tuesday, June 15th.)
Fang Island will instead be performing with Philly garage four-piece Univox on May 29th.
The Bundles' Cake Shop show earlier in the month ended up happening, but with the group playing as a trio comprised of Jeff and Jack Lewis and Anders Griffen (so, without Kimya Dawson and Karl Blau). A note Jeff sent us about the show, and the surprise one they played right after it at Sidewalk Cafe, is posted below.
Then, to close out the month-long celebration, on May 31st, Moonmen On The Moon, Man (the Cake Shop house band basically) will "play five times for five years," including a "1,825 song set, to represent every day of Cake Shop's last five years of live music." A video of that band playing the venue's third birthday, more details on the show, and other dates below...
Jeff Lewis on the Bundles shows...
"The Bundles played two "surprise" NYC shows [May 12th], at Cakeshop and at Sidewalk, both sets performed as a trio. I thought the trio arrangements sound really cool and interesting in their way, personally I'd almost think it'd be weird to re-re-arrange the songs back into 5-member format when we all re-unite, now that the song've taken on an awesome new perspective in my mind! But it goes to show that the resources at hand can always be made into something cool, whether stripped down resources or expanded resources, both have their own challenges and rewards."
