Mark Your Calenders

Sorry that there has not been much posting here recently. There's been lots of working, Yankee game attending, Labor Day weekending, and......... show organizing!

Now that summer is *officially* over, even though it still feels very summery outside, I have begun working on the KNOCKOUT shows again.

But before I get to that -> I am very excited for my first dj gig in a long, long time. My friends over at Neon Lights have asked me to provide the background music for their next show, which as I have previously mentioned, will be at Union Hall on Fri Sept 21. I can not wait! BTW - The Most Serene Republic have launched a new website today. Check it out. Neon Lights flyer and details:

NEON LIGHTS PRESENTS announces our return to Union Hall, following a victorious two night stand in July (Ola Podrida, De Novo Dahl). In an effort to top ourselves, we've brought in a secret Canadian weapon, THE MOST SERENE REPUBLIC. The Ontario seven-piece were the first group signed to the Broken Social Scene's Arts and Crafts label that weren't a direct off-shoot of BSS themselves. The lovely expansive pop sound of their upcoming sophomore release, Population, will place the band on the level of their celebrated countrymen like Stars or Metric. Joining MSR will be hotly tipped Brooklyn newcomers, HIGH PLACES and SHE KEEPS BEES. The sweet melodies and alien instrumentation of HIGH PLACES have earned the duo Pitchfork love letters and an opening spot on the Blow's upcoming Northeast tour. The spooked songwriting and soulful voice of SHE KEEPS BEES' Jennifer Larrabee have garned favorable comparisons to Fiona Apple or the early work of Chan Marshall. Between sets, music will be lovingly selected by our fellow blogging /concert promoting guest DJ's, Justin and Nghia from CRACKER'S UNITED/FRICTION and Chris from THE BATTERING ROOM/KNOCKOUT

And then, the following day, the next KNOCKOUT - Round 6 @ Matchless. An excellent 'unofficial' afterparty option for Brooklynbretta. Bands TBA VERY SOON.

In October, there's my 2nd Annual CMJ preparty happening on 10/13 @ Matchless, details for which will be posted soon. I'm also working on a day show in the LES sometime during CMJ.

And believe it or not, I also have something up my sleeve for November. KNOCKOUT Round 7 @ Matchless on Sat Nov 10 with the amazing BY THE END OF TONIGHT. That's right folks. Seriously.

Stay tuned....
