damn damn leash

Hey, I've been busy this week... or at least partially busy and partially doing things that are more fun than blogging (amazing that those thing exist, I know), but here a whole bunch of show announcements.

We'll start with this one, because it's the one I'm most excited about. Be Your Own Pet are now on the bill with the Raveonettes at the Plaza on March 8th, which is just ahead of the release of their second full-length, Get Awkward.

Chromeo are at Richard's on April 3rd. Tix are on sale Friday. (thanks to Andrea for emailing)

CocoRosie is canceled.

Cave Singers are at the Media Club with Fanshaw next Thursday. Someone reminded me that I kept forgetting to put that up... and I can't remember who. But thank you.

Brasstronaut are at the Libra Room tomorrow at 8pm sharp. Cover is by donation.

Bison is at the Cobalt on Friday with Spread Eagle, Grass City, Mongoose. Spread Eagle had some gear stolen, so they'll be looking to raise a bit of money to help replace it.

Piper Davis, Stolen Bicycles Gang, and The Teenage Girls are at Hoko's on Saturday.

The Mohawk Lodge show originally scheduled for February 22nd at the Biltmore has been pushed back until March 7th. And now they'll be sharing the stage with Pride Tiger.

Treacherous Machete are at the Media Club on February 2nd before they head off to Europe. The Big Bad, White Owl, and the Sore Throats support.

Certain Breeds are at Honey on February 28th with Greatest Ghost and Terrorbird. (thanks Steve)

Tittsworth and DJ Ayres are at Modern tomorrow.

Jill Barber is at the Media Club with Matt Barber for an all in the family affair on March 20th.

LA Riots are at Celebs on February 1st. Paul Devro supports.

Mos Def is at the Croatian Cultural Centre on February 18th.

Last but not least (because I've been there way too much in the last two months), some stuff at the Astoria:

On February 9th: Safety Show, Hermetic, and Los Malos play.

February 15th sees my friends Neil and Danny spinning (records in Neil's case, hard drives in Dan's) for Better than Loneliness.

Ghosthouse, the Navy Black, and Johnny Wakeham are there on the 16th.

Jaws, Karen Foster, Needles, and Hit the Bricks rock some metal on February 23rd.

And even though it's not my kind of thing, my friend Nicola would disown me if I didn't mention that Misery Signals, a Textbook Tragedy, and Savannah play on February 25th.

now playing: Ladyhawk - Night, You're Beautiful

Danny and I aren't playing BTL this month, I am taking a break/going to Pinback and MC Chris before I head over to BTL later that night. DJ's Vira (of CJSF)and Summers will be guesting that night. It's also Josie, Nathan, and Erin's birthday party. So the usual Free Cake, No Cover, and Cheap Dranks apply.
