Ghostland Observatory: Get to Class


Ok, as I recall, we had to skip class to see stuff like this in my day, but the non profit writing center Austin Bat Cave is bringing Ghostland Observatory to Anderson High School May 14th to give a songwriting workshop. That's just badass. 


Weekly Special #203a: The Static Jacks, live at Cameo, May 8

The Static Jacks are an extremely young rock band from New Jersey that blends Interpol's tense guitar work and driven drum beats with a more "alt-rock" approach; mostly traceable in their preference for epic, open melodies. In their still short career they already managed to play with bands of the caliber of Tokyo Police Club, Youth Group, and Nightmare Of You. Self-described "Infamous rock mangler" Lee A. Cohen (manager of The Dandy Warhols and So So Glos) is a big fan of the band and recently sat down with them for a Deli-cious interview - read it here.


Weekly Special #203a: NewVillager

Pop has been hurting since the King of Pop’s reign peaked more than a decade ago. Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini of NewVillager are rivaling for the indie ticket to usurp at least as pop princes. “Michael Jackson and The Beatles [are] the two presiding artists of pop mythology who set the great big shining standard that needs to be broken,” says Simonini, when asked who NewVillager sounds like. “We can use the lens of M.J. and The Beatles to see our own music in a broader light.”
Although only a 7-inch has been released for “Rich Doors” and “Genghis On,” the songs exhibit the duo’s adept ability to draw from disparate influences and construct cohesive, memorable songs. Their performance during CMJ revealed that they have a ready arsenal of material filled with huge hooks and beats. The songs jog the collective pop memory while adding an element of surprise and fascination. Not content with just writing and recording music, Bromley and Simonini plan to release different forms of art media to accompany their pop masterpieces. - Read Nancy Chow's interview with the band here.


Bardo Pond Making a Splash at JB’s April 29

Flagship Philly space-rock collective Bardo Pond are coming to JB’s to make you hope that some friendly hippie with an eye-dropper is making her way around the crowd. Since 1991, these shoegazers have been exploring sound in all its distorted, droney, washed out glory. Their extensive jams recall other Philly psychedelia artists like The Asteroid No.4 and Aspera, while vocally they are quite reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine. They were recently invited to take part in some extremely impressive shows curated by the likes of Lou Reed and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, and those are some people who don’t fuck around when it comes to bringing the noise, so be sure to bring some earplugs. Come out and enjoy whether you are the patchy-bearded kids looking around feeling super young or the balding man in the back wishing he were young again, it is sure to be a fun time. Remember not to dose and drive. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Adam G.
