Tuesday night I ran into Jose and Juan from the Beets at Bushwick Country Club and they told me how they'd double booked themselves this Friday night - they had scheduled a Santos Party House show with Monotonix and Turbo Fruits the same evening as a show with Thee Oh Sees and the Fresh and Onlys. The latter two are playing another show tonight too, with Golden Triangle, at the Bell House, where I last saw the Beets. The Bell House is a sweet chillers hunting lounge spot, unfortunately plunked down in Gowanus, in the middle of nowhere, and nowhere - as we all know - is a place only accessible by the G train.
The Beets and Thee Oh Sees? I almost choked on my whiskey pickleback! They showed me the sweet goodies they had just picked up from Captured Tracks, and said Thee Oh Sees' new album is radical goodness. So last night I was making plans to shoot at this killer event when I realized I couldn't find the second show listed anywhere. Maybe this event at BCC had been, like most there, just a beautiful, beautiful dream? WRONG!
This morning Brooklyn Vegan listed the second show, which will be at Death By Audio after the Bell/Santos Party Houses shows, probly pretty late. Except, uh, Thee Oh Sees aren't on the bill. Tonight playing at DBA are the Beets, the Fresh and Onlys, and "special guests the Ghosties." The title of the post is totally misleading. Well, oh well. Looks like I'll be running from Gowanus to Williamsburg. Because running there carrying a bunch of vid equip would still be faster than taking the G. Just kidding I got love.
Prior to all this, I am filming an awesome performance for NYU called "Memefactory" by some friends who happen to be the handsome gents of What We Know So Far. The event starts at 7:30pm at Warren Weaver Hall, Rm 109, 251 Mercer St. I'll be there before heading to the Bell House and then Death By Audio. Don't miss any of it! If I can make it all work, then you'd surely have no excuse.
