Every time I hear a Julian Lynch song, I just can’t help but get flashbacks of last year’s Chocolate Bobka show at Monkey Town (as I pour one out for our fallen brother), with his face projecting huge across the 4 large video screens and playing a few songs via video chat for the crowd on what I remember to be a recorder– but it wasn’t. Here’s the new video for “In New Jersey” [via the new and improved GvB]:

…the music, duh! Well, he didn’t quite use those exact words, but yes, Rostam is right. The video is brought to us by Converse, as the final installment of teasers for a single song collabo between Vampire Weekend, Kid Cudi, and Best Coast which should be released via free download on the staple kicks’ respective websites. Should be interesting?
Tomorrow at Mercury Lounge, these two lovely ladies will be crooning to their heart’s content and one lucky reader will be there with a friend for FREE– just head over to our Facebook page and comment it up for your chance to win. CALLmeKAT played an awesome but sound issue-riddled show during Northside with Au Revoir Simone upon the trio’s personal request after playing with KAT overseas. We’re excited to give her a listen without the bass soaked sounds of the Warsaw. Check out the video for “My Sea” below:

Last night, in celebration of the Northside Festival’s opening night, things got messy at the Knitting Factory– but not the kind of mess you may already associate with Nathan Williams (a.k.a. Wavves). I mean, of course, in that beer soaked slam dancing sort of way. And although some of his fans may not be on the path to adulthood just yet, according to his new band members the now frontman of Wavves, Williams, has quite possibly done some growing up [via]:
I left before Wavves took the stage after getting soaked in sweat scented beer (though the Village Voice caught me on the bright side), but let’s talk Dom and Cloud Nothings (and a live performance video that perfectly personifies them) after the jump.

Now that the “Breaking Bad” season finale has come and gone, this may have to be my replacement show. [via]
Here’s the latest from our friend Sean Dunne, who you may remember filmed this great documentary on Jimmy Tarangelo that we featured on the site last year. His latest subject is Rocky Salemmo. As Sean says:
He’s a ramblin’ gamblin’ man. For the majority of his adult life Rocky has hustled bowling for a living. Here is his story. A short documentary about booze, broads and bowling.
If the bowling alley looks familiar, that’s because it’s neighborhood favorite, The Gutter.
On a tangential note, Sean’s tongue-in cheek use of the term “broad” reminded me that I’d been meaning to look up the etymology of that term, since I had no idea where it came from. The internet answers all.
