Killer, killer, killer show today at the Morgan. Damn near all of my favorite local bands are playing this. All we need is Ballzy & Wild Yaks and it would be perfecto. It's also weird because if I booked an all-day show in Brooklyn this is pretty much the exact line-up you'd get, or pretty damn close. It's $10 but that gets you 22 bands and I think there's free booze early on.
The Yaks are back after taking a short hiatus to record their new album. On Friday they played the backyard of the Grand Street Bakery, which is a killer space. They should have more shows back there. Despite being completely shit-faced the set was pretty killer. I took a bunch of pics and shot some video of it. I still need to upload the pics but check out the sweet HD (make sure to toggle it to 1080p before viewing).

If you wanna run around town you can see Wild Yaks and Spirit Family Reunion twice tonight! Early on Wild Yaks are playing The Grand St. Bakery on Grand St. in Brooklyn. Also early, Spirit Family Reunion (who recently opened for the legendary Levon Helm) are playing the Invisible Children event at Big Screen Plaza. Later on Wild Yaks are playing with EULA and Ritz Riot at Tommy's Tavern! A shitty dive bar with three of my favorite local bands, yes! Elsewhere, SFR is playing the MeanRed party at DROM which is a weird combo of band/venue/promoter but good for them.

Black Lips are coming to NYC for Halloween! VICE put together a rager at Webster Hall with Davila 666 and X-Ray Eyeballs. The tickets are $25 which is pretty cheap considering it's Halloween. Nonetheless, put me on the list yo!
I just got an email informing me that Youth Of Today is playing Santos Party House with Kylesa, Mouthpiece, Trash Talk & more. Fucking Youth Of Today? I was never a big fan but these dudes are legendary and this show is going to be fucking apeshit nutso.
