Earl Greyhound release new video and tour for 2 months with OK Go

It's a mystery to us how true rockers Earl Greyhound haven't been playing arenas after releasing the soul ripping single 'SOS' back in 2007. Sometimes things take longer than expected, but the trio is back with a new album, a new single and a 2 month tour with OK Go that is surely bound to raise their profile.



Ok Go @ The Metro

Over the weekend we sent our photographer Daniel Bartel to The Metro to photograph Ok Go as they returned home to rock the crowd. You can find all of Daniel's picture from Saturday here.


No Wave's Golden Palomino reunite! Live at Le Poisson Rouge 05.07

The "No Wave" movement was a seminal, mostly NYC based avant garde musical phenomenon from the late 70's and early 80's devoted to sonic nihilism, i.e. lack of structure, lack of melodies, and interest for noise, atonal textures and repetitive rhythms. From this point of view, it can be seen as an important link in NYC's traditional interest for noise applied to, following Lou Reed's experience with the Velvet Underground and Metal Machine Music and preceding Sonic Youth's noise rock saga. The No Wave movement was rather short lived and had its peak with the release of a Brian Eno curated "No New York" compilation album in 1978. Many of the current avant-garde NYC heroes began their career in one of those no wave bands, including John Zorn, Arto Lindsay, and Bill Laswell amongst others. Brainchild of New York drummer/producer Anton Fier (in the picture), The Golden Palominos are one of the original No Wave bands. After more than two decades they are reuniting to perform live at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City on Friday May 7th. The show will feature the “Syd Straw era” Palominos, which spanned the years 1985-1987, during which time the band recorded the albums Visions of Excess and Blast of Silence. The lineup includes some other NYC stalwarts like Jim Campilongo and Tony Maimone. Don't miss this show!


The Quelle Source Headline at North Star Bar April 18

Since The Quelle Source started recording in their home studio, it has given them an opportunity to experiment with their own sound. On their newest album Enjoy the Ridge, they incorporate rapid drum beats, loud electric guitars, and screeching vocals to create songs with as much adrenaline as a first kiss. However, The Quelle Source still maintain the same type of perceptive lyrics found on their debut self-titled EP with lead singer Kevin Ryan’s vocals sounding like the Decemberist’s Colin Meloy on four hours of sleep and a few adderall pills (which is meant as a compliment). Each song is essentially a tribute to what they learned at St. Joe’s University, and I don’t mean in the classroom. Theirs is a story of late-night parties, youth, sweat, sex, booze, freedom, and rock ‘n roll. What else should your college years be about? Well, maybe more drugs. North Star Bar, 2639 Poplar St., 9pm, $8, 21+ myspace.com/thequellesource - Katie Bennett
