Bon-Cairo

posted June 11th, 2010

Invite-only, intimate jams for cultural luminaries at the US Embassy in Stockholm? Check! Bob-sledding down Olympic tracks in Lillehammer? Check! Incestuous collaborations with Norse-types of all shapes, size and sex? Check that, too. How about jumping cannon-ball style into the chilly fjords of Bergen? Yep, our shorts are wet. Whale carpaccio? Down the gullet! Soft-boned sardines and designer clothing from Porto? Yeah, that too, bud! What else can we say about the recent Bonnie "Prince" Billy & The Cairo Gang (with Susanna [as trio] and... (read more)

HOT TOWN, SUMMER WITH MASAKI

posted June 10th, 2010

In the faraway land of Japan (unless you're actually there or near there, duh), plans are quietly being made by the mystical Masaki Batoh as he prepares to travel to the United States this fall and play shows in (carefully) selected towns. As deep and high as the sound of Batoh is on record, it is extra-haunting in the flesh - so when the dates are announced, we expect you Ghost Army types to stand at attention. Until then, new songs are being drafted for... (read more)

CHICAGO'S DUMPSTERS IN DANGER

posted June 6th, 2010

Yeah, that's right - if you ain't smart and you live in Chicago, you've got a target on your back this week - because starting tonight, Trash Humpers hits town. Every town that Harmony Korine's new film has graced is in danger of being cleaved in two, with the less-hip-than-thou violently attacking those who seek entertainment in the dark and vile corners provided to them by Korine and "his ilk" (the haters' words, not ours). Whether you're in or you're out (and in this... (read more)

NEIL HAMBURGER DOES CHICAGO (AND CANADA)

posted June 4th, 2010

2010 has been a typically busy year for Neil Hamburger! At this point, if he kicks the bucket in his car, we won't be surprised - but we will be trying to get a sponsorship from the car company. Neil's got debts that go farther than his current list of tour dates! Anyway...in the wake of a reasonably sucessful series of shows that he MC'd for Faith No More, and an eqally OK tour with Pucifer, the gags continue as the man we hate... (read more)

CAVE PURE MOVES

posted June 2nd, 2010

Hott on the heels of their Drag City debut, the deceptively dense Pure Moods EP, CAVE are taking their soaring jams and dance grooves across the U.S.-iverse in June, July and yes, August, spreading like sticky syrup from sea to defiled sea (and including a week in Canada (it's only fair)). It all kixx off with a record release party at Chicago's own The Hideout on June 4. That's right, Friday! What better day to get your CAVE on?!? If you can't find them in... (read more)

HORNY TRASH HUMPERS MAKE NASHVILLE SCENE!

posted May 28th, 2010

Today marks a very special day. What with all the flooding, mayors urinating in public in an effort for CNN to take notice, and houses falling apart, the people of Nashville need something to look forward to. That something can be found this very evening at The Belcourt Theater as Trash Humpers makes it's 3rd premiere across this rotten land of ours. This opening of Trash Humpers will not be an ordinary experience, Harmony Korine will be at the show along with his crew of... (read more)

SIC IN THE SUMMERTIME

posted May 26th, 2010

Hot damn, summer in the city! If you're coming to San Francisco this season, you're bound to meet some skeezy people there. And oh, the places they'll show you, the people you'll meet! You'll definitely hear about the rock and roll duo called Sic Alps, every dropout on every street corner knows them. But hey, you want to take it from the streets and do something classier? No problem, Sic Alps'll meet you there. Yeah, we got the 411 on their latest appearance -... (read more)

Let Us Send Our Trash to Your Phone

posted May 24th, 2010

Hey, you! Yeah, YOU -- with that look of abject humiliation on your face every time your quaint -- but let's face it, tired -- "Camptown Races" ringtone goes off in a crowded elevator! Want to really give them something to pity you for? Try one of our free "Trash Humpers" ringtones. Each one of them contains a moment of pride and pathos from the great new American film by Harmony Korine, Trash Humpers - already opened in New York... (read more)

A HOLY NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM (NO, NOT THAT ONE!)

posted May 21st, 2010

Long and hard is the path, we walk slowly and wonder. We wonder many things of import, such as when the good Brother JT will play another show. What's that - Saturday May 22nd at a secret art space with a slew of Thrill Jockey bands?!? We asked and we did verily receive. Then how about this: when, o when will Brother JT return from the mountain and the desert (the kaliedescopic mountain and desert of pure lysergic energy, that is) and float to us... (read more)

WITH HIGH WATER EVERYWHERE, TRASH HUMPERS ARE DISPATCHED TO NASHVILLE

posted May 19th, 2010

Will America ever learn the lessons of Katrina? On May 3rd, the Cumberland River rose up and flooded through Nashville. As far as crazy people go, Nashville is no New Orleans, and there was no Superdome for crowds of desperate rapists to prey upon, but still - the lamestream media is acting like this terrible tragedy is no worse than the flooding of a local cesspool, thus cutting off real Americans from responding to the crisis the way the good Americans do - by rolling...
