Brooklyn punks Tournament play a lot around here. Maybe you've seen them with H2O and 7 Seconds, or with Coalesce and Coliseum, or with Gospel, or Kylesa, or Torche. Their next show is this Saturday (3/7) at Acheron with rock and rollers Greasy Hearts and Don Giovanni's Nuclear Santa Claust. Tickets are on sale.
Tournament's new album, Teenage Creature, comes out April 14. The first single, "Sean's Place," is out now and it's a down-strummer with awesomely snotty vocals. Listen below.
Nuclear Santa Claust aren't the only Don Giovanni punk band playing NYC this weekend. Screaming Females play Silent Barn tonight (3/6) with Downtown Boys and Aye Nako (a few tickets at the door), and California X play Saint Vitus tonight with Ovlov, IYEZ and Darkwing (tix at door).
Don Giovanni comedian Chris Gethard (who's also on Broad City) will be at a punk/comedy show on Saturday at Palisades with local bands Low Fat Getting High, Flagland and Washer, and comedy from Joe Pera and Shakir Standley, with appearances from Sefa, William Petrano and more. That's $5 at the door.
While we're talking about NYC punk shows this weekend, here's a couple more:
Brooklyn's Go Deep have signed to the trusty 6131 Records, who will put out their first full length this summer. They have a tour kicking off in their hometown this Sunday (3/8) at Grand Victory with Icarus, Husbandry and Risers. Tickets are on sale. Their debut EP, Counseling, came out in 2013 on Mayfly Records and it's 7 tracks of heavy, smart, and pissed-off hardcore. Stream it in full, with their list of dates, below.
