Judas Priest w/ Steel Panther @ Izod Center (pics & setlist)

Judas Priest / Steel Panther at Izod Center - 10/17/14

Anyway, the show took a dark turn when they played their ballad "Beyond the Realms of Death", which made me have to sit down a second and think about my own mortality and also how this chick's ass was in my way for a second. But I got over that fast because then Rob Halford came out on a fucking Harley for "Hell Bent for Leather" and it was the greatest thing ever to happen in North America. He also wore like nine different leather jackets during the show, which ruled. Most singers are lucky if they can wear like three jackets tops. [Dave Hill's Barclays Center review]
Metal legends Judas Priest's tour with Steel Panther already hit NYC for a show at Barclays Center. We posted pictures and Dave Hill's review of that (excerpted above), and now we've got a set of pics from the other NYC-area stop that happened October 17 at the Izod Center. Like at the Barclays show, this was packed with classics like "You've Got Another Thing Comin'," "Breaking the Law," "Hell Bent for Leather," "Metal Gods," plenty more. Didn't catch the exact number of leather jackets this time though.

More pictures, with the setlist, below...

ASCAP: Ballet School, Mosco Rosco, Line & Circle, Aurora, Little Daylight, Hoodlem @ The Studio @ Webster Hall
Oct 23, 2014 4:12pm | CMJ

Music publishing powerhouse ASCAP left the numbers crunching at the office and brought some of their best newer acts to the Studio at Webster Hall last night. Ballet School fawned out their dancey, art-pop into the dark corners of the intimate venue. Mosco Rosco, Line & Circle, Aurora, Little Daylight and Hoodlem filled out one of the varied and expansive shows of the Music Marathon so far.

Thurston Moore Band & PCPC (Parquet Courts + PC Worship) played Saint Vitus (pics, review, videos)
Oct 23, 2014 4:12pm | Brooklyn Vegan

photos by PSquared Photography, words by Andrew Sacher


The Thurston Moore Band -- aka Thurston Moore, his former Sonic Youth bandmate Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, and guitarist James Sedwards -- brought their tour in support of their brand new album The Best Day to Saint Vitus Tuesday night ("we're on our tour of Northeast black metal clubs," Thurston joked on stage). Thurston's new album is the most Sonic Youth-sounding thing he's been involved with since The Eternal, and he's definitely got the right band for the job. James Sedwards is a bit more of a J Mascis type than a Lee Ranaldo (he threw a few wailing guitar solos in there), but Deb held down that SY-style bass playing really well and it was fun to watch her rock out on a small stage in comparison to seeing her with MBV last year. And of course Steve and Thurston have insane chemistry. It's impossible to not wish Kim and Lee were on stage too, but during some of those noise buildups it almost felt like being at a SY show.

Opening the night was their tourmates PCPC, the collaborative band that Andrew Savage and Austin Brown of Parquet Courts formed with members of PC Worship. This year, Andrew and Austin already have a Parquet Courts album out and a Parkay Quarts album on the way that they recently put out a track from, but it was a mystery as to what PCPC would sound like. Turns out they sound... a lot ...

Q&A: Death Cab For Cutie Preview Their Final Album With Chris Walla
Oct 23, 2014 3:54pm | StereoGum

It’s weird to think about the fact that Death Cab For Cutie have now been a band for nearly two decades. For those of us who came of age alongside the band’s music, revisiting Death Cab’s back catalog — currently seven albums deep — can be something akin to re-reading old diary entries: deeply personal, wistfully sentimental, and generally indicative of who and where we were at the time. Death Cab’s last studio album, 2011′s somewhat divisive Codes And Keys, seemed to show the band at a kind of impasse. While it certainly wasn’t a terrible album, it also didn’t seem like a band pushing forward. Instead, it was the sound of a band treading water, resting heavily on their own well-worn, sweetly melodic laurels. Next year, Death Cab will release their as-yet-untitled eighth studio album, their first since the departure of band member (and longtime producer) Chris Walla. Despite the amicable split — an event that has caused longtime Death Cab fans no small amount of distress — the remaining members of Death Cab seem to have embraced the change as a much-needed shot in the arm and the kind of healthy shakeup that they didn’t even realize they needed.

This cassette player plays Spotify from actual tapes
Oct 23, 2014 3:36pm | Fact Magazine

How’s this for cassette tape nostalgia?

Feeling particularly nostalgic for the clunky-and-chunky tape players of yore, British developer and maker Matt Brailsford has made one that plays Spotify playlists but still uses actual cassette tapes.

First, Brailsford gutted a tape player, loading in a DIY Raspberry Pi computer board that runs Spotify-enabled MusicBox software. He then inserted NFC tags into old cassettes, each with ID numbers that correspond to matching Spotify playlists.

All the buttons on the cassette player are supported, as well as two-sided tapes, and the whole project only took a few weeks. Watch the player in action below. [via CNET]

Thurston Moore Sees Your Snarky Tweets About Him
Oct 23, 2014 3:35pm | StereoGum

Thurston Moore’s latest interview to promote his new solo album The Best Day comes via The Wall Street Journal. It’s a fascinating conversation that touches on Moore’s mom (whose photo adorns The Best Day’s cover), the lingering insight behind Pavement’s “Shady Lane,” post-war poetry, a whole slew of rock stars, Moore’s songwriting these days, and his belief that by the end of Sonic Youth the band’s audience had “decoded” them. It also includes this exchange about public criticism of Moore’s private life in the wake of his affair and subsequent divorce from Kim Gordon:

James played Webster Hall for CMJ (setlist), added to free Rough Trade day party w/ Pinact, September Girls & more
Oct 23, 2014 3:32pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Veteran UK alt-rock band James are in town this week, having played Webster Hall on Tuesday (10/21) as part of CMJ. In addition to songs off their 13th album, La Petite Mort, the Manchester band played crowd favorites such as "Born of Frustration," "Come Home" and "Say Something." Setlist below.

James have added another NYC show this week and it's in a much more intimate venue, headlining Rough Trade's free Friday (10/24) day party that also features Oscar, Pinact, September Girls and Adult Jazz. The show is all-ages and no wristband or RSVP is required.

Juicy J All I Need (Feat. K Camp) & Trash
Oct 23, 2014 3:23pm | StereoGum

This morning, Juicy J took to Twitter (“Wake yo ass up!”) to prepare fans for two new singles he dropped shortly afterward: “All I Need” (feat. K Champ) and “Trash.” The Academy Award winner, as per usual, stays true to his explicit tendencies on both tracks, spitting salacious raps over dirty trap beats. In “All I Need,” Juicy J reveals to us what is missing from his nearly perfect night of partying — all he needs is “one more drink, two more blunts, three more bitches …,” continuing up to the number 5. While “All I Need” finds Juicy J exploring ways to get more trashed, “Trash” is about, you guessed it, the haters. “Your wife on the Instagram looking for me,” Juicy J snarls at some unidentified opponent. Listen to both tracks below.

PINS @ Cameo / September Girls, CYMBALS, J. Fernandez @ Cake Shop

Before and after his visit to Puddles Pity Party, BV photographer Chris La Putt hit some CMJ shows on Tuesday (10/21). In the afternoon he went to the Cake Shop day party which had a nice selection of some of the week's busier acts, including sometimes Kurt Vile associate Boyd Shropshire, UK dance/rock act CYMBALS, Glasgow, Scotland's Casual Sex, Ireland's September Girls, and Chicago's J. Fernandez and Curtin. Then after Puddles, he stopped by Cameo in Williamsburg to check out Mancherster, England's punky PINS. Pictures from those sets are in this post.

You can also check out Amanda Hatfield's CMJ day 1 pics (Peter Matthew Bauer, Lydia Ainsworth, more) and stay tuned for lots more CMJ coverage. More from Cake Shop and Cameo below...
