WAVVES playing free Brooklyn gig & SXSW (but not w/ Zach Hill), SHDWPLAY Records throwing shows even sooner -dates
WAVVES @ Market Hotel in September (more by Leia Jospe)
On Tuesday, February 16th, WAVVES (Nathan and drummer
Zach Hill) (UPDATE: We are told that Zach no longer plays in WAVVES) will return for a free show at Brooklyn Bowl (which is where one of three NYC Black Lips shows is happening in late March).
The previous (pre-Zach) drummer of WAVVES, Ryan Ulsh, has a hand in running Norfolk, VA's SHDWPLAY Records Showcase. The label brings its bands The Super Vacations (a garage rock outfit featuring Ryan), Sore Eros, PC Worship and Florida to Glasslands on Friday January 29th for a show presented by Other Music (who is giving away tix and vinyl, details below). The Super Vacations, PC Worship and Teeth Mountain play Market Hotel the next night. And the SHDWPLAY showcase is in Philly the next.
If you were at SXSW last year, WAVVES (and an anti-WAVVES shirt) were everywhere. They'll be at the Austin fest again this year too. A video of Nathan at SXSW 2009, "covering" "Barbie Girl" and more are below...
