DoNYC is giving away VIP passes to the Meadows this weekend (headliners are Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jay Z).
Bob Dylan, Angel Olsen, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Gin Blossoms and more NYC-area shows went on sale earlier today. Here’s more going on sale soon:
Superorganism are a many-membered pop collective led by teenage Maine-via-Japan singer Orono, that also features members from London, New Zealand, and Australia who all met over the internet. They’re now living together in London, they’re signed to Domino, and they have three songs out, “Something For Your M.I.N.D.,” “It’s All Good,” and “Nobody Cares.” They’ll make their live debut at Germany’s Reeperbahn Festival this month, and they’ll play their first two US shows in December: NYC’s House of Yes on 12/12 and LA’s Moroccan Lounge on 12/14 (tickets). You can hear all three songs and browse their full tour schedule at the bottom of this post.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah‘s 2005 debut was something of a classic of the “blog rock” era, and the band toured the album in full for its 10th anniversary in 2015. Now they’re also doing a 10th anniversary tour for that album’s less popular followup, Some Loud Thunder, including a NYC show in December 3 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on AmEx presale at noon and the public on-sale begins Friday (9/15) at noon.
Another good rap show that same day is Curren$y at BB King’s (10/29) (tickets).
Cold World, Concealed Blade, Krimewatch, Open Your Eyes and Illusion are playing Sunnyvale on September 29 (tickets).
Less Art (members of Thrice, Kowloon Walled City, and Curl Up & Die) are releasing their debut album and going on a Northeast tour with Vattnet, which BrooklynVegan is presenting. They’ll be at Mercury Lounge 9/14 (tickets), Middle East in Boston 9/15 (tickets), Songbyrd in DC 9/16 (tickets), and Underground Arts in Philly 9/17 (tickets).
Dinosaur Jr are back in NYC this fall for two shows at Brooklyn Bowl, 10/2 (tickets) and 10/3 (tickets). BrooklynVegan is psyched to be presenting these shows, which are opened by Easy Action (John Brannon from Negative Approach’s other band)
NYC music venue Knitting Factory celebrates its 30th anniversary with a week of shows, including a BrooklynVegan-presented show with This Will Destroy You and Sannet on 11/14 and an Invisible Oranges-presented show with Nails, Woe and Couch Slut on 11/18 (tickets).
