Kurt Vile & the Violators @ Bowery Ballroom, 5/16/2013
The set was strong throughout, with certain jaw-dropping standouts. The pulsing "Shame Chamber," arguably the bounciest and most radio-friendly track on Pretty Daze, came to a gripping crescendo of piercing howls, frantic guitar soloing and tireless percussion. It was almost as though Vile was baiting the FM dial only to forcefully back away and maintain his musical independence. "Girl Called Alex," a heady, wafting song that grows increasingly more agitated and electrified as the measures race by, had the crowd applauding before it was even over.-[Williamette Week]The above review comes from the Portland, OR appearance of Kurt Vile & The Violators, who headlined a sold out Bowery Ballroom last night (5/16), joined by openers Angel Olsen and Steve Gunn. Pictures from Bowery are in this post. In other Vile news, the singer recently sat in for a full acoustic performance at XPN. Stream it in full at their site.
Last night's Bowery shows was one of many on Kurt's tour, that will swing through NYC again next month to headline the 4Knots Fest. Tonight (5/16) Kurt will be on The Late Show with David Letterman. More pictures from Bowery Ballroom are below.

Eric Burdon @ Highline Ballroom, 5/15/2013
The band came out, and warmed the room up. the audience had a good mix of people, some old, some middle aged, and some young. Everyone seemed pretty excited, and the energy by this point was strong. Finally, he came out, and the band kicked into "When I Was Young".
Among the highlights were "Spill the Wine", which really sounded very funky and had a lot of life tonight, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", which had a sort of reggae feel, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place", "I'm Crying", and, of course, the biggest and most famous song on the list, "House of the Rising Sun".
A strong overall performance by a musical legend, and it was really great to see him again! I think this show was probably a better performance than the two prior times I had seen him, although being front and center last time certainly enhanced the experience, I would say. But this was a very enjoyable evening, at affordable prices, and I was certainly glad to have been there! - [The Charbor Chronicles]Rock legend Eric Burdon was in town this week with his current version of the Animals for two shows at Highline Ballroom on Wednesday and Thursday (5/15-5/16). (He also played a private show at the John Varvatos store on 5/14.) We caught his first Highline show and pictures from that, as well as the setlist, are in this post.
Eric's added a few shows to his 2013 schedule (like Bumbershoot) and an updated list of North American tour dates are listed, along with more highline pics, below.

We haven't had a new album from onetime Miracle Legion and Polaris frontman Mark Mulcahy since 2005's In Pursuit of Your Happiness (one of my favorites of that year). (He unfortunately had to deal with some personal tragedies.) That is too long to be away from one of the great voices in music. That will change next month when the singer releases Dear Mark J Mulcahy I Love You via Mezzotint/Fire on June 18. Working with veteran indie rock knob-twiddler Paul Q. Kolderie, the new album finds Mulcahy in fine form, his raggedly emotive vocals warming you like a great be hug. You can stream two tracks from the album -- "She Makes The World Turn Backwards" and "Let The Fireflies Fly Away" -- below and both are terrific. Welcome back, Mark!
As mentioned, Mark will play NYC on June 27 at Mercury Lounge, shortly after his appearance at Wilco's Solid Sound Festival. Tickets for that show are still available. He's got shows throughout the summer and all tour dates, plus new LP artwork and tracklist and those song streams, are below.

Food critic Robert Sietsema was also let go. "So many people have come out to offer their love (and opportunities)," Musto told Hamilton Nolan. "My brand will be feistier than ever." We don't doubt it. The Voice, on the other hand ... - [Intelligencer]Michael Musto had been with the iconic NYC alt-weekly since 1984. Also leaving, The Voice from its longtime Cooper Sq. offices.

George Michael sustained a head injury in a car accident in his native UK yesterday, requiring the ex-Wham! vocalist to be air-lifted to a local hospital:According to the singer's rep, Michael was a passenger in a Range Rover that crashed on the M1 motorway (a huge freeway) at around 5:50 PM local time.
The rep says no vehicles were involved in the crash. It's unclear exactly what caused the collision... Michael's spokesperson says the singer only suffered "superficial cuts" -- and was doing just fine. [via TMZ]Get well soon, sir! And if there is any additional news then somebody tell meeeee.
The Flaming Lips @ Wellmont Theatre, 5/16/2013
The Flaming Lips played the first of two New York-area shows last night (5/16) at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, New Jersey.
It was near-sensory overload -- as all Flaming Lips shows have been since The Soft Bulletin tour -- as strobes and lasers flashed all about the theater. Wayne Coyne ascended a pile of silver half domes where his mic sat atop and he cradled an infant doll for the first three songs as black confetti was shot from cannons, two on either side of the stage, during the second song of the evening, "The Terror." It was everywhere and I found myself fishing confetti out of my camera bag on the train ride home.
It was also a far cry from my first Lips show - "The World's First Headphone Concert" - in Dallas in 1999 when Coyne had a solitary trash bag of confetti and would launch handfuls of it into the crowd. Colors cascaded through fiber-optic cords that snaked around the domes and back behind Coyne. From afar it looked as if he was standing on the glittering remains of a Disney Electrical Parade float. You may have seen it on their Late Night with Jimmy Fallon appearance.
The set leaned heavily on material from their new release, The Terror, and the past few records back to Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots. We were treated to one song from The Soft Bulletin ("Race For The Prize") and nothing from the earlier records which I think is a bit of a shame.
Nonetheless, it was a spectacle that looked and sounded great. Spanning thirty years, the Lips maintain an eclectic and wide-ranging age group of fans. The younger part of the crowd did their part as kids toward the front wore costumes and covered themselves in glitter and fake blood. One girl - front and center - even had her own infant doll.
The Flaming Lips, along with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Darkness, will play the first night of Great GoogaMooga 2013 tonight (the Lips are on at 6 PM) before heading over to Europe for a handful of dates. Setlist and more pictures from Wellmont -- including ones of opener Julianna Barwick -- are below.
In addition to the previously discussed lineup of Pusha T, Redman and Dizzy Wright, Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest expands with the addition of EPMD, Soul Understated and a tribute to the late great MCA (Adam Yauch):On the Final Day of the Festival, July 13th, The Festival will stop for a moment of silence for Yauch and then launch into a tribute curated by [BHF Executive Director Wes] Jackson and Bodega DJ, RawBeatz. Brooklyn Bodega will also release an exclusive mix of Beastie songs of remixes from the "Cookie Puss" days all the way to "Hot Sauce Committee".Tickets are still available for the July 13th event.
As discussed, Pusha T's new LP My Name is My Name is due in July and features "Numbers on the Boards" which recently surfaced in video form. Check out that video, as well as a tour doc about Pusha T, below.
