The Art of Shooting CD release party! Pianos, April 27

The Art of Shooting - besides having a friggin' awesome name - are a trio from Brooklyn that plays a mixture of noise rock, alt folk and psych rock. Tense, moody, often dimly lit, these guys' songs reserve surprisingly noisy turns, alternated with moments full of tenderness and emotion, making it a consistent source of catharsis from the struggles of life - which are the core of lead singer Kelly Irene Corson's lyrics. Don't miss their CD release party at Pianos on April 27.


Car Stereo (Wars) Explains It All (And It Involves Vodka)


Austin's own DJ Car Stereo (Wars) is bringing out his second full length, Explains It All, at the Beauty Bar tomorrow night (Friday 4/23). Free hand-decorated copies go out to all attendees, plus those arriving early will be treated to gratis beer and vodka. Neiliyo and Hot Britches! will also be performing sets after everyone's good and loose.   



Little Women/Abacus/Suite Unraveling CD release! Bruar Falls, 04.29

Three of Brooklyn’s most inventive experimental ensembles — Little Women (in the picture), Abacus and the Suite Unraveling — will celebrate the emergence of new music with a triple album release party at Bruar Falls. Suffused with over driven electric guitars, squonking horns, pounding drums, and a ferocious and provocative live show, the three groups are bound not so much by their unity of sound as they are by the ferocity with which they strive to transcend the boundaries of genre and style. On April 29 at Bruar Falls, these bands come together not just as a gesture of mutual support, but as a statement of community in the face of a continually fragmenting sonic world. In order of appearance, the night will feature Abacus, the Suite Unraveling, and Little Women. Each group will perform a 50-minute set of original music. Special guest artists Strong Look will open the evening with a 30-minute set at 8pm. Bruar Falls is located at 245 Grand St. Williamsburg Brooklyn. The show is 21+ and free. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).


Daily Void

One of the latest releases to come from the Sacred Bones 12” series is the new ep from Daily Void entitled Eclipse of 1453 EP. The music of Daily Void has always been raw and primal and this ep is not exception. The band reaches into the darkest elements of punk and then punches you right in the jaw.

Daily Void celebrates the release of their ep on April 24th at Empty Bottle with The Styrenes and John Bellows.


Dirty Mittens Demo Release Show this Friday


Dirty Mittens will be giving away a handmade, limited run (100), three-song demo from the album they're working on at Mississippi Studios on Friday.

"We're super excited about this album," said guitarist Ben Moral. "It's been in the works since last summer, and we're still working on mixing it. Jim Brunberg of Mississippi Studios is generously contributing his time to the effort."

The band is also stoked (and you should be too) on these awesome V.I.P. cards they will be handing out at the show. The idea is basically like when you go to a coffee shop and get a bunch of macchiatos and then they give you one for free. Except instead of macchiatos, it's shows. A buddy of theirs who runs the site ibrontosaurus.com designed and illustrated these really amazing punch cards, and if you come to five shows and get it punched, they'll give you something free.

"We didn't really want to limit this to one particular thing, you know, so we're just saying 'we'll hook you up' - which could mean a free show, shirt, CD, or even something crazy like coming to practice and swilling some brews with us, or having us take you out to dinner, or whatever," explained Moral. "We just want to say thanks to those folks who come out to our shows all the time."

This idea came about because of a confluence of events the band is calling Mittenstastrophe 2k10. This weekend, there will be three (3) chances to get a punch: Mississippi Studios Friday night, Aladdin Theater on Saturday during the day, then Saturday evening at the Willamette Week's Eat Mobile event. Is there a better way to spend this almost summer weekend?
