What's going on Saturday? (Samhain, Pentagram, Ex Hex, Meat Puppets, David Bazan, Dirty on Purpose & more)
Oct 31, 2014 11:15pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Danzig at Riot Fest Chicago 2013 (more by Kirstie Shanley)

Dirty on Purpose @ Rubberlip, 2007

You can browse our full NYC show calendar and our 2014 Halloween Weekend guide for more of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights.

Samhain, Goatwhore, Midnight @ Best Buy Theater
Samhain, the band Danzig led between the Misfits and his eponymous band, are reunited this year and they finally come to NYC on... the night of Samhain. The reunion lineup includes Glenn, plus Baroness guitarist Peter Adams and Danzig Legacy members London May and Steve Zing (no Eerie Von). Danzig Legacy has played Samhain material before, but it's a treat to see a whole night dedicated to it. Plus there's excellent support tonight from blackened death metallers Goatwhore and speed metallers Midnight.

Dirty on Purpose, Sisters, French Miami, Darlings @ Death By Audio
Some of the bands that one called Death by Audio home are reuniting for this show that kicks off DbA's final month. Headliners Dirty on Purpose, who were one of Brooklyn's more underrated bands of the '00s, will be playing their first show since 2008.

David Bazan (w/ Passenger String Quartet), David Dondero @ Bowery Ballroom
Over the years David Bazan has fronted Pedro the Lion, Headphones and put out solo material (and still other projects too). For his new album, he's re-worked material from those three with a string qu...


Shut Up, Dude: This Weeks Best And Worst Comments
Oct 31, 2014 6:35pm | StereoGum

Happy Halloween! Is your musician costume ready? Do you need a last-minute idea? If you have a Cubs jersey you can be Sad Jack White. Or you can go as Sia and have your back to everyone all night. Um … Sexy Bon Iver? Zombie Lana Del Rey? You = Mark Kozelek, your friend = a hillbilly? This is hard. Please share a photo of your costume (or a costume idea) in the comments. Before we get into this week’s spookiest comments from our 1989/RTJ2 standoff, here are what some of your favorite artists look like in costume…

Oct 31, 2014 5:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan

First Avey Tare put out a spooky video today and now his bandmate Panda Bear has followed suit. Those Animal Collective guys sure love Halloween! This one's a second teaser for his new album, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, and it stars the Grim Reaper and a stuffed panda bear. How appropriate. Watch it below... and Happy Halloween!

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Oct 31, 2014 4:38pm | StereoGum

If you were expecting to see some spooky songs in this week’s 5 Best, you might be a little disappointed. Yes, it’s Halloween, but nothing here is particularly Halloweeny. This week did bring the return of the holiday-appropriate Marilyn Manson, and he was nominated, but he didn’t make the cut. Da Mafia 6ix, the resurrected zombie of Three 6 Mafia, also treated us to a horror-filled new mixtape, but that arrived too late for consideration; they’ll have to wait till next week. The only thing spooky about the songs here is how great they are. Check ’em out and have a happy Halloween!

Billy Corgan Responds To Anderson Coopers Dumb On-Air Insults
Oct 31, 2014 4:15pm | StereoGum

On last night’s Anderson Cooper 360, Cooper featured Billy Corgan in his recurring RidicuList segment for appearing on the cover of PAWS Chicago magazine — something that happened more than five months ago, mind you — and went on to ridicule the wrestling-themed furniture commercial Corgan appeared in last year (apparently he didn’t hear about the eight-hour Siddhartha performance?) before lamenting that watching his alt-rock heroes age is reminding him of his own mortality. Here’s the segment:

Watch Another Spooky Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper Teaser
Oct 31, 2014 4:12pm | StereoGum

Panda Bear has put out another teaser for his upcoming new album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. It features the same Grim Reaper as the first teaser, but things get a lot crazier this time: it starts freaking out and rips the stuffed panda bear in half until there’s nothing left, all while the screen flashes with bright colors and discordant noise escalates in the background. Pretty spooky stuff! Watch below.

An Interview With Nuns
Oct 31, 2014 4:00pm | CMJ

We sat down with Hank Hanewinkel III, the mastermind behind CMJ 2014 performing artist Nuns, on the evening of their set at the Bowery Ballroom as a part of Champion’s official CMJ showcase with The Kills, Moon Duo and Slothrust. Hanewinkel told us all about Nuns’ transition from a solo project into a full band, the songwriting process, and the cover bands of his youth.

Directed by Ted Maroney.

The post An Interview With Nuns appeared first on CMJ.


The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
Oct 31, 2014 3:56pm | StereoGum

Last week in this space, I wondered where the hell all the Halloween-themed videos were. They all finally showed up this week — including a few today, which puts them out of contention for this week’s list. But some of the best videos of the week weren’t dark or spooky at all. They were technicolor joy explosions. “Techinicolor joy-explosion,” it turns out, is probably still the most dependable music-video context. This week’s picks are below.

Musics Biggest Trolls: 8 Artists Wed Like Better If Theyd Just Stop Talking
Oct 31, 2014 3:49pm | Chart Attack

Being a musician in the 21st century is strange terrain. Record sales are plummeting. You can toil over a record for months, even years, and there's still a good chance few will buy it, let alone hear it. If there's one certainty in this unexplored new frontier, it's controversy. Call out another artist, go on a rant, tweet something racist, yell at a crowd and you'll find yourself on the front page of Pitchfork in no time. I know this, you know this, artists know this. It's no wonder we've seen so much trolling lately. Artists desperate for coverage have been living by one simple maxim: if you don't have anything to say, say it loud. And make it clickable.

Sun Kil Moon

Mark Kozelek has been toiling away in the underground since the '80s in Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon, playing for a small but dedicated audience of diehard fans. This September he accidentally made Pitchfork headlines by calling a Raleigh, North Carolina crowd "fucking hillbillies." This isn't exactly new for Kozelek - it's a big part of his live shtick - but it's the first time it'd been at the top of a music site. And he clearly got a taste for it.

Since then, he's done everything he can to stay there. That's mostly come at the expense of The War On Drugs' Adam Granduciel, a guy who's done everything he can to avoid Kozelek's homophobic "suck my cock" bait. Granduciel, clearly frustrated and hurt by the unprovoked abuse from a musician he once admired, finally&...


Cass McCombs Angel Blood (Video)
Oct 31, 2014 3:49pm | StereoGum

Cass McCombs released his seventh full-length LP, Big Wheel And Others, last year, but today we get a video for a track from that album, “Angel Blood.” The melancholy song is accompanied by footage gathered on McCombs’ last tour and in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. It’s humble yet emotionally poignant, just like McCombs’ music. Watch.

Mac McCaughan First And Last And Always (Sisters Of Mercy Cover)
Oct 31, 2014 3:47pm | StereoGum

Arcade Fire celebrated Halloween by releasing a star-studded horror film they made three years ago. That’s their style: Go big or go home. Their label boss, Merge Records founder and Superchunk/Portastatic main man Mac McCaughan unsurprisingly opted for something simpler and more direct, an eerie, shapeless cover of Sisters Of Mercy’s “First And Last And Always.” It’s good — though he missed the opportunity to call himself Mac McCoffin! Listen to it.
