Long Island punks Iron Chic just played NJ's Skate & Surf last weekend (as pictured above), and they already had a bunch of other announced NYC-area appearances coming up after that. Now they've added one more, opening one of Face to Face's three NYC shows this weekend. Those shows have Face to Face playing their first three albums in full, one a night. Iron Chic are on night 1, the Don't Turn Away (1992) night.

Night 2 (1994's Big Choice) has Royal Psalms, a new band with members of Crime In Stereo, Daytrader and Aficionado. And night 3 (1996's self-titled LP) has post-With Honor melodic hardcore band Ambitions, whose sole album was 2007's Stranger on Bridge 9. Tickets for all three shows are still available, but three-day passes are sold out.

Iron Chic also play the Long Island stop of Treasure Fleet's tour at Mr. Beery's on Saturday (5/23) with Broadcaster and more ($8 at door). Then they play a free NYC show at Riis Park Beach Bazaar on May 30 with Soda Bomb and Somerset Thrower. After that, they open for Gin Blossoms at Long Island's Paramount on July 10 with Timeshares (tickets), and then play LI's Today's Mixtape Festival in August with The Movielife, Andrew WK, Incendiary and more (tickets).

Speaking of Timeshares and The Mo...

Austin's Flesh Lights touring, playing NYC with Ex Humans and The Tough Shits (dates, streams)
May 21, 2015 4:58pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Austin's Flesh Lights make hyperactive, punky rock n' roll with boundless energy. If you dig fellow Austinites OBN IIIs or Bad Sports you'll probably like what these guys do. The band released Free Yourself last fall via 12XU and you can stream a song off that, as well as a recent single and the whole of their 2011 album, Muscle Pop, below.

The band are currently on the road and hit NYC on Friday (5/22) at Union Pool as part of a very strong garage-punk bill with Philly wimp-pop burners The Tough Shits, Vug Arakas and headliners Ex Humans. $10 at the door. All dates are listed below...

Hudson Mohawke kicking off tour, debuting new live show in NYC (updated dates & new video)

As announced in March, Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke is visiting the U.S. later this month, but now we also know that the May 28th NYC show at Irving Plaza in NYC will be the premiere of a new show. A press release reads:

All together these songs are just starting to hint the breadth of the forthcoming album Lantern, a masterclass in modern Hip Hop, Pop, RnB & Avant Garde Electronics from a producer who refuses to be pigeon-holed into one style, never playing it safe and continuing to push the boundaries of what people expect. But this month people will get to hear much more, and will also see Hud Mo debuting a brand new live show in New York & London. For the first time in his career - Birchard has formed a band to perform his music. Acutely aware that these perfectly engineered, massive songs deserve accurate translation to live instruments - this is the producer making a bold step into new territory to support an album that's exciting and crammed full of innovation.
Tickets for Irving Plaza are still on sale, and the entire tour (which launches this weekend in Chicago), is listed below.

Hud Mo also has a new video for "Very First Breath," and the song was recently remixed by Boys Noize (who plays NYC this weekend and is part of the just-announced 2015 Warm Up lineup). Check those out below too.

Jack White answers questions from fans
May 21, 2015 4:38pm | Chart Attack

In a blog post published to his Third Man Records website Wednesday, Jack White, a.k.a. Rock 'n' Roll's last hope, answered questions from Vault members and Facebook fans about the merits of TIDAL (of which, he's one of its much-ballyhooed artist-owners).

The back-and-fourth was predictable: Will smaller artists be treated more fairly with TIDAL than, say, Spotify? "Damn straight," Jack answers, "I'm aiming to get unknown artists paid so that they can make more music." There were comments like: I totally understand wanting to help out smaller artists. My musicians buddies are all struggling. To which Jack adds: "But also bigger artists, medium artists, whatever, if PSY gets viewed 2 billion times and makes a couple grand, where did all his money go? It's also very important to buy real records from artists you love when they are on tour. That buys gas in our tanks when we were struggling."

The whole Q&A is shot through with a precise narrative: TIDAL is good for the little guy, the medium-sized act, the stadium-filler. Everyone. It'll help expose new bands. It'll guarantee fairer compensation. It'll pipe hi-fi art straight into the ears of fans. It might solve the imminent water crisis. And you can get it for the price of a couple LPs a month. Peanuts (as if the days of the $20 CD were something to pine for). "Tidal is good," over and over and over; the Leader teaching his congregation its new creed. The pro...

Earlier today someone tweeted a Reddit link into my timeline that seized upon the idea that Tidal bios were shady. Perusing the few they'd collected (that focus specifically on female pop stars) I quickly realized they weren't shady at all, but merely factual about the artists' failings. More »

Prinzhorn Dance School
May 21, 2015 4:04pm | StereoGum
Prinzhorn Dance School, the terse UK postpunk duo, and Shit Robot, the playful New York house producer, are both longtime fixtures of the DFA label. But the two acts have basically nothing in common musically besides a love of elemental rhythm. So it's cool to hear them come together, with Shit Robot remixing Prinzhorn … More »

Roger Daltrey threatens to cancel concert due to marijuana smoke
May 21, 2015 3:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The Who don’t seem to live by the tried and true mantra of “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.”

According to Newsday, frontman Roger Daltrey threatened to prematurely end the band’s concert in Long Island on Wednesday night due to an excessive amount of marijuana smoke.

Daltrey is apparently very allergic to pot smoke and the mere presence of its causes his voice to shut down. Adds Newsday, “The smoke’s impact was almost immediate on his voice, which went from crystal clear and potent for the opening ‘I Can’t Explain’ to something rougher and more limited during ‘I Can See for Miles.'”

As you can see in the video below, Daltrey ultimately confronted the audience member who was smoking, threatening to walk off stage unless the bud was put out. The fan seemingly obliged and the show continue on as planned.
