Fucked Up: stream new album “David Comes To Life” via NPR + touring(Philly date)

leave a comment »

The Toronto band with an inappropriate name, Fucked Up, have a new record David Comes To Life coming June 7th via Matador Records. It’s a concept album that’s broken down into four separate acts. Some are calling it a ‘rock opera’. That description makes me cringe a bit because it makes me think of Green Day’s “American Idiot”. That being said though, I have complete faith in Fucked Up and their music. Below you can watch a 10 minute documentary on the new album and if you head over to NPR, you can stream the entire album right now. Head over here to read the entire story of the album.

They’ll be in Philly later this month at the First Unitarian Church on Sunday, June 26th with Jeff The Brotherhood. Tickets for the show can be found HERE. This show is going to be a hot, sweaty mess in the basement of the church.

Kurt Vile & the Violators played World Cafe last night w/ J Mascis, SXSW last week + playing First Unitarian Church in June

leave a comment »

Kurt Vile & the Violators played the World Cafe Live last night opening up for J Mascis. We weren’t there, but a Youtuber was so their video is below. If you missed the show, don’t fret cause he will be back in the summer. He’s playing the First Unitarian Church on  Sunday, June 12th with Pissed Jeans. Tickets are not on sale yet, but the NYC show at Bowery Ballroom is the day before this one and goes on sale April 1st. So the Philly show should be on sale around then. Either way, we’ll post a link when they do. UPDATE: Tickets for the show can be found HERE.

Also he was in Austin last week for SXSW, where he played a bunch of shows and got his equipment stolen. Videos of a SXSW show and Kurt explaining what happened are below too.

Arctic Monkeys schedule US tour(Electric Factory) + new video/song

leave a comment »

English quartet Arctic Monkeys released a new song last week “Brick By Brick” accompanied by a video as well. The song keeps to their original formula of guitar driven music but the vocals seem a little bit different. It’s sounds as if lead singer Alex Turner is not singing the lead role. Maybe I’m wrong? Anyway, check it out below.

Also, the band will head out on a US tour in May, where they will supposedly test out some new material. Hopefully they’ll play some old stuff too. The tour stops in Philly on Wednesday, May 18th at the Electric Factory. Tickets for the show go on sale Saturday(03/12) and will be found HERE.
