NYC show to be announced next week
Category: Music

Hi folks,
We can't thank you enough for being such an amazing audience last weekend. It was truly a homecoming that far surpassed our expectations.

That said, we have a couple more surprises (and by surprises, we really just mean shows) to announce before we start playing around in the studio (and by playing around, I really do mean just playing around. It's about all we do when we get together these days). The first of the two will come this Monday when we announce a show in New York for early fall.

PLEASE NOTE: This will be the last East Coast show we intend to play this year, so we hope you can make it if you missed the reunion show.

Stay tuned!!

The Best Thing I Have Witnessed...

...at the pool to date.

I wasn't sure how good the show was going to be yesterday, because the last time I saw them was the Black Swan party, which was completely bonkers and exponentially smaller. Sometime bands, especially the openers, have a hard time bringing their show to the big stage, during the day, and with all the distractions of the pool. But silly me for ever doubting M&K.

Siren Fest '08 - The Plan

Siren lives on! So happy, because what would summers be without it? Sucky, that's what.

And the lineup this year is spectacular. Here's the plan:

Walk around/collect free shit during DofZ/TAP -> Parts & Labor -> close as possible for The Dodos!!!!!!! (I, along with pretty much everyone it seems, am OBSESSED with Visitor) -> maybe catch some of Annuals set (depends on whether or not the main stage has it's usual 1/2 hour delay or not) -> meal/beer -> Beach House -> Helio -> BSS

This plan would involve missing Ra Ra, Islands, and Malkmus. Oh well. We'll see what happens.

Jedi Golf

I'm on a roll today. Watch out! This is one of the only decent things I have seen on tv recently. Good thing Mad Men is back in a few weeks.

Brendan Canning Record Release Party

This should be interesting. $30 is a lot, but I have a feeling it will be worth it. With the rest of the band in town for Siren, this could turn into an all out BSS show. In tiny little Mercury.

Happy Anniversary!

Here's a quick one.

So that Beat Radio show I mentioned the other day just got even more exciting. The makers of quite possibly my FAVORITE ALBUM of 2008 have been added to the lineup.

9pm The Secret Life of Sofia
10pm Beat Radio
11pm Wye Oak (Merge Records)

Yes. The Secret Life of Sofia. Saw them play a much too short set @ The Delancey recently and they were amazing/mesmerizing/sublime/very very impressive. If you have not heard Seven Summits yet, you really need to get on that. And the band makes a strong case for why you should still buy cds with the intricate, beautiful artwork/packaging for the album. Add them to the flyer!
