What's going on Thursday? (Teenage Fanclub, Veruca Salt, Sun Kil Moon, Bold, Oathbreaker / Cult Leader, more)
Jul 23, 2014 11:10pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Teenage Fanclub @ Williamsburg Waterfront 2010 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Sun Kil Moon at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James Richards IV)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Teenage Fanclub, Honeyblood, Saint Rich @ Pier 84 at Hudson River Park
What a treat -- Glasgow guitar pop practitioners Teenage Fanclub are stopping in NYC on their way to this weekend's Merge 25 festival for this free show. They haven't made a new LP in four years but with eight records worth of great songs to choose from, they are not lacking in options. Opening are a much younger Scottish band, Honeyblood. Did we mention it's free?

Veruca Salt, Battleme @ Bowery Ballroom
Oh, the tough choices of the '90s-loving NYC music fan. Teenage Fanclub's onetime DGC labelmates Veruca Salt, now back with their original lineup, play their first NYC show in many many years. You'll likely hear a bunch of new tracks from their forthcoming new album, but there's no way they're not gonna hit with "Seether" and "Number One Blind." Both tonight's show and their MHOW show on Friday are sold out.

Oathbreaker, Cult Leader, Young and in the Way, Badr Vogu, Meek is Murder @ The Acheron
We at BV are proud to present this show which includes three killer bands on Deathwish's roster -- Oathbreaker, Cult Leader and Young and in the Way -- plus Badr Vogu and s...



Heres A Performance By Jack White One Milwaukee Fan Will Never Forget
Jul 23, 2014 8:47pm | StereoGum

When Jack White isn’t busy looking grumpy at baseball games, he also sometimes plays music. A few nights ago at his show in Milwaukee (where he also played Lorde’s “Royals”), he brought a fan on stage during his encore performance of “Seven Nation Army” and she got to play with the band for a bit and wear one of Jack’s hats. Watch the video below — she comes on stage around 5 minutes in.

Courtney Love Calls Off Hole Reunion
Jul 23, 2014 8:28pm | StereoGum

Earlier this year, right before the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s suicide and Hole’s classic album Live Through This, Courtney Love said that she was reuniting with Melissa Auf Der Maur, Eric Erlandson, and Patty Schemel and that they were working on new material. A few weeks later, she tapered expectations by saying that, “We may have made out but there is no talk of marriage.” Now, in the middle of an extensive profile on the singer, she firmly ruled out a reunion tour with the band. While she’s still collaborating with Erlandson, she says, I dont want to get on the oldies circuit. I dont need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today. [Being] one of the last chicks in a rock n roll band is a weird place to be. Its scary not to be selling out.” Check out the rest of the article for updates on the Kurt Cobain biopic, her new memoir, and that time she dated Edward Norton.

Questlove Defends Iggy Azalea, Declares Fancy Song Of The Summer
Jul 23, 2014 8:12pm | StereoGum

Questlove’s new show Soundclash is premiering tonight on VH1 and the Roots drummer sat down and talked to Time about the new show and, more importantly, what he thinks is the song of the summer. “You gotta know what the difference is between a good song and a bad song. Songs that I consider personally bad are also effective, and songs that I think are great dont stick.” He admits that even though he wishes Chromeo’s “Jealous” took the crown, it has to go to “Fancy,” which spent 8 weeks at the top of the Billboard 100, even if it wasn’t your pick. “Heres the thing: the song is effective and catchy as hell, and it works,” he said. “You know, we as black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture. If you love something, you gotta set it free. I will say that ’Fancy,’ above any song that Ive ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer in that fact that were truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings.” Read more about what he thinks of “Fancy” and the wealth of music coming out of Australia below.

Lewis Romantic Times preview
Jul 23, 2014 8:08pm | Gorilla Vs Bear

“IT SOUNDS THE SAME WITH THE SYNTH FLOWING OVER TOP OF HIS INCOHERENT VOICE. BRILLIANT!“

Thanks to Hipinion for somehow brokering the liberation of this painfully short (alleged) preview of Lewis‘ unheard, only recently discovered second album, Romantic Times, released just two years after L’Amour to zero fanfare. This one’s already commanding bids of over $1600 on ebay with almost 4 days left to go. The legend gets deeper / more ridiculous…


Watch one lucky girl jam with Jack White on Seven Nation Army
Jul 23, 2014 7:27pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Jack White might have been in a foul mood watching the Cubs on Tuesday night, but he was definitely in high spirits the night prior. During a show in Milwaukee, the same one in which he briefly covered Lorde’s “Royals”, the Third Man rocker invited one very lucky fan to the stage during his encore performance of “Seven Nation Army”. She got to wear his hat, strap on not one, but two of White’s guitars, jam out for a bit, and even take a bow with the band. It’s all captured in the fan-shot video below; also be on the lookout for other hilarious Jack White antics, like when he hands a cymbal stand to the audience.

Over the last couple of few weeks, you’ve heard highlights from Jack Whites epic Lazaretto tour, including his covers of Kanye West, Lorde, Jay Z, and Metallica. Now, thanks to radio station 93XRT, you can tune into his entire set live from tonight’s show at the Chicago Theatre.

Clear your schedules because, as we’ve noted in the past, when the Third Man Records leader puts on a performance, anything is possible. (Let’s just hope he’s recovered from last night’s miserable Cubs game.)

Stream White’s full set here beginning at 9:00pm CT.

Courtney Love changes mind, will not reunite Holes classic lineup
Jul 23, 2014 5:43pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In April, Courtney Love revealed her intention to reunite Holes classic lineup for the first time since 2002. I started playing with Patty [Schemel] and Melissa [Auf Der Maur] and Eric [Erlandson], just to see how that was, Love explained The Quietus. We already played like three or four times in the last week.

However, Love has since put a kibosh on the idea, telling The Philippine Daily Inquirer in a new interview, “I dont want to get on the oldies circuit.” She added, “I dont need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today. [Being] one of the last chicks in a rock n roll band is a weird place to be. Its scary not to be selling out.”

Instead, Love will focus her efforts on a new solo album, due out later this year. In addition, she’s set to appear on the final season of Sons of Anarchy, continues to work on an autobiography, and is currently casting the leading role for the Kurt Cobain biopic, which she said will go into development next year. Love discussed all these projects and more in The Philippine Daily Inquirer interview, which you can read in full here.

Below, watch the video for one of Loves recent singles, “You Know My Name”:

Vaniish (ex Wax Idols / Soft Moon) released debut LP (stream it), playing NYC in September
Jul 23, 2014 4:50pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Keven Tecon logged time in San Fancisco bands Wax Idols and Soft Moon but left the drummers seat of both to form his own group, Vaniish. The new quartet -- featuring fellow Wax Idols member Amy Rosenoff  as well as Bay Area scene regulars Adam Beck and Nick Ott (drums) -- released their debut album, Memory Work, in June. As you might expect from the lineage (and band name), this is chilly stuff, ranging from pounding post-punk to more ethereal creations. If you're predisposed to the dark side, give this a listen below.

Vaniish will be in coming to NYC in September for a couple shows: Glasslands on 9/1 with Christines, INTERVAL and Winkie, as well as Weekend's Shaun Durkan on DJ duty (tickets). Then they'll play the 9/3 edition of Nothing Changes with fellow San Franciso band Offing, and Tiers.

Vaniish album stream below...

You may have heard that last night guitar god and vinyl fetishist Jack White was spotted at a Chicago Cubs game looking sad and/or angry. Per Third Man Records’ Instagram, it looks like some sort of field trip with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

shredding with slugs is a new meme, but Slugdge is no joke
Jul 23, 2014 3:53pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Prince / Slayer's Kerry King jamming on slugs

According to me, slugs are the most terrifying thing on the planet. Crawling bags of snot? Yeah, pass. Even typing the word makes me want to pour a protective circle of salt around myself at all times.

So it's with the utmost horror that I pass along the new Tumblr Slug Solos. The collection is courtesy of @michaelmphysics, the same brain behind Bass Dogs. The concept? Simple: "Some guitarists' solo faces look like they've just realised they're holding giant slug creatures." He's right. I've also soiled myself. You can check out a few of Michael's more (like the Prince one above) below, and see the rest here. The Kerry King one is our own creation though.

That said, there are some slugs I can get down with. A couple weeks back, Invisible Oranges reviewed Gastronomicon, the newest album by death metal band Slugdge. The theme is as nutty as the name, sliming up Lovecraftian tales about an ancient species of interstellar/inter-dimensional, you guessed it, slugs. Here's a taste of the lyrics:

Rhaexorog the lord of all, protector of what lies beyond/the greatest of the chosen ones, anointed of the netherslugs!
But don't let appearances make you think this is just a gimmick. Slugdge actually rip, like a crazy combination of Carcass, Demilich, Edge of Sanity, and Arcturus. All hail Mollusca the Gr...
