Tonight: Radio America, Sigmund Droid, NY Howl

Two fun shows in the same hood tonight. First it's an early set by Sigmund Droid @ Galapagos ($5, 7PM) and then it's Radio America @ Spike Hill (Free, opening for NY Howl). Both shows should be over by 10:30 so you can still go out and party it up afterwards... you sleazy drunk bastards. **Oh and Tom from Radio America will make out with the first person that walks up to him and says "Ninny Ninny Nah Nah".

NYC Loves Apes And Androids

Last night Apes and Androids performed to a packed Hiro Ballroom. I'll save my full review for later but a few quick notes. The crowd was an unusual mix of people that kinda proves this band has a much further reach then some people give them credit for, I'm sure the Rolling Stone write up doesn't hurt either. From a musical stand point this was probably the best I've ever seen them perform, although the stage show was a bit lacking. But that's a good thing because it means they're such an incredible band right now that giant robots and viking ships are no longer necessary... but we still love that shit.

**More Updates to come**

Anyway it's French Kicks with the local boys Bon Savants, Harris, and Aloud. The show is free with RSVP.

Lindsay Lohan Posed Nude

Hey pervs, Lindsay Lohan (finally) posed nude. She shot a nude pictorial for NY Mag (WTF?) which recreates Marilyn Monroe's last nude shoot. Are the pictures super hot? Not really. Does Lindsay have A+ tits? Pretty much. So yeah, thanks NY Mag. Even if these aren't the sexiest nude pics ever they do open the door to future Lohan nude scenes in movies and maybe a Playboy shoot (although that will probably suck). Tune in to NY Mag online on Wednesday for 6 "web only" outtakes - in general outtakes tend to be better then the crap that gets published.

Earth Crisis, Shai Hulud, Sworn Enemy, & Terror @ Gramercy!

Holy fuck! This is one of the most badass lineups I've ever seen. First of all the reunited legends, Earth Crisis, are headlining. Then we've got one of my personal favorites in Shai Hulud (also reunited). And then we've got Sworn Enemy and fucking Terror to round out the lineup. I haven't been this excited about a show in a long ass time.

I just bought a ticket and it cost $32 after processing. That's way more then I've ever spend for a hardcore show but I do not mind at all. Ahh! I can barely contain my excitement!

Tonight: Bang Camaro & Cheeseburger

On Tuesday I put a show on in Boston. The band I booked to headline was Bang Camaro. I never actually saw them live before that show but now I'm going to see them again tonight (Williamsburg Music Hall 10PM, $15). So what I'm saying its they're really good live, more fun then any band you've seen in a long time. Also Cheeseburger is opening and they're pretty awesome as well.

The band is composed of a bassist, a drummer, three guitarists, and anywhere from ten to fifteen vocalists comprising a full choir of lead singers. The band's music is somewhat similar in style to '80s metal and glam rock. The basic song structure employed by the band does away with traditional verses in order to highlight catchy choruses and integrate as many guitar solos as possible. The result has been described by the band as, "taking everything we loved about the genre, and throwing everything out that we hated." The band cites Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly as influences in addition to hard rock bands like Iron Maiden and Dokken. "I would call us anthem rock," said Alex Necochea. "We're really not heavy metal. I think our focus is more on writing great singles, as best as we can make them. That's just something Bryn and I grew up on. We're big fans of melody and big driving hooks, that sort of thing.
Here are some pictures from Tuesday:

Tonight: GZA, Spank Rock, LNP, Ben Sherman

OK, here's the deal for tonight. First there's the LastNightsParty thing at the Ben Sherman store. I hear that Spank Rock will be attending and possibly performing. Then it's off to Studio B for what was originally a Spank Rock show. Today it was announced that GZA will be performing with Spank Rock, which is awesome. Oh, it's also Jeremy J's birthday party but I can't tell you where that is.
