Deadbeat Darlings Play a Hometown Show Tomorrow

December 19th, 2012

When his previous band broke up, Joseph King (vocals and guitar) left Austin, Texas, for New York City, where he continued to write new songs and play solo shows around town. Slowly but surely, King began gigging with other people, and eventually Deadbeat Darling—now with Mohit Bhansali (guitar and vocals), Ian Everall (bass) and Evan Howard (drums)—playing an eclectic mix of dub, reggae, surf rock and trip hop, were born. Their first LP, Weight of Wandering, came out in 2009, and the follow-up, The Angel’s Share (stream it below), was released at the beginning of this year. Deadbeat Darling (above, doing an acoustic version of “Flowers for Our Graves” at SXSW) have steadily toured ever since, and you can see them—alongside the Stationary Set, Desert Stars and Sky White Tigertomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom.


CMJ Music Marathon Starts Tomorrow

October 15th, 2012

Here in New York City, it’s the most musical time of the year because the CMJ Music Marathon, tomorrow through Saturday, is upon us (check out a selection of the bands you can see, above): five days and nights jam packed with bands playing in all sorts of places, including those you wouldn’t normally think would have a concert, plus plenty of the usual suspects. The Bowery Ballroom hosts CMJ lineups on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Mercury Lounge welcomes the Aquarium Drunkard: No Jacket Required lineup tomorrow, the Windish Showcase on Wednesday, the Merge Records Showcase on Thursday, a FREE late-night show with Ratking on Friday and the MezzoForte Showcase on Saturday. And, of course, Music Hall of Williamsburg is on in this, too, with the Captured Tracks Showcase on Thursday and the Fat Wreck/Rocks Off Showcase on Friday. And once again we’re throwing our annual day party at Pianos with seven bands downstairs and six upstairs on Saturday. Get involved with a whole day of great tunes plus bloody marys and margaritas.
