Recap: Cut Copy Headlined the August 8 Modular-Curated Pool Party

For this past weekend's installment of the summer Pool Party series at the Williamsburg Waterfront, Jelly teamed up with their Modular label pals for an Aussie-curated Sunday fun day. With Cut Copy headlining, and support coming via Restless People, Glasser, Memory Tapes and PUNCHES, there was no denying how massive the turn out would be. Lines formed early, kids waited patiently, and it all paid off with an afternoon jam-packed with good music, great friends, and the shaded solace of the All Saints Pub.

Next week's event brings together !!!, Lee Fields, The Strange Boys and Future Islands. After that, the 22nd of the month couples the Fool's Gold dream team of Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned, before rounding out our favorite summer Sunday activity on August 29 with Delorean, Dominique Young Unique and some as yet to be announced "super special guests". 

 

Here's to hoping those two pair up for a duet...am I right? Spanish dance-rock and a Tampa spitter with a flair for the dirty vernacular...match made in heaven, ha!

 

Check out the full gallery of pictures from this weekend's event here.

EVR's Belly of the Beast: PUNCHES, Glasser and Modular All Drop by the Booth This Week

Big tings poppin' in the East Village Radio booth tomorrow, on our weekly show, Belly of the Beast. Being that this Sunday is the Modular-curated Pool Party at the Williamsburg Waterfront, there's no better way to express our excitement for the affair, than by having a bona fide celebration of our own this Thursday, August 5, from 8-10pm.

The lineup for this Sunday's Jelly NYC soirée includes Cut Copy, Memory Tapes, Glasser and Restless People, with local trio, PUNCHES, providing the between-set spins. Greg, Darin and Alan will be in the booth to talk shop and maybe we  can convince them to do a live song for us. Gotta tune in to find out.

 

Glasser will also pop in for a quick chat, along with resident expert, Shelley, from the Modular family. I'll be spinning songs from all participating acts during the segment as well.

 

'Tis gon' be a beast of a show, so you know the drill: Thursday, August 5 from 8-10pm...Belly of the Beast on East Village Radio. Tuners-ins are my favorite.

MNDR and Restless People Bowl Us Over at FADER Party

Ever since catching both MNDR and Restless People at the FADER-sponsored fort of radness during CMJ last year, both acts have been hotly-tipped to totally dominate 2010. This Tuesday, the two talents teamed up again for FADER Bowl at the apropos-venue, Brooklyn Bowl.

What more can I say about MNDR? She's probably the illest chick on the scene that you may not have on heavy rotation yet, and I've been dilligently working on changing that. You can learn a little bit more about her style and influences in my chat with her from last year. 


Catching this gal live is always a treat too. Working with her industrial ghettotech knowledge, MNDR wows whether she's entertaining through her upbeat shoe-stompers or her emotionally-charged sit-down stunners.


MNDR's next  NYC gig is on February 16 with WAVVES, before she heads out on tour with YACHT. Dig it!

Restless People...and there could not be a more fitting name for this dynamic Brooklyn outfit. The band, a vritual cornucopic-blend of band members from Professor Murder, Michael Bell-Smith, The Brothers and Tanlines, always provide a stellar show, in which the energy is cranked way up and the feet never stop moving.


Powering through notable tracks like Victimless Crime and Days of Our Lives, the boys kept us captivated through the remainder of the evening, as the floor filled with more and more eager ears. Especially slick is their infusion of airhorn and chanting their name throughout a number of their songs. It never fails to make me crack a huge smile!

   

 

More pictures can be viewed here.

 

Also, special thanks to DieselUSA for hooking us up with free booze and bowling throughout the evening. A super rad night was had by all in attendance.

Beastly Bits #22

Geaux Saints! Did you catch the Super Bowl last night? More importantly, did you watch The Who during the halftime spectacular. I've got my thoughts on how it all played out, which I was extremely verbal about during the presentation. No need to rehash, but you can scroll through my twittered-frustrations here if you must.

Now that the footballing is over, we're ready to focus on an extremely busy week, chock full of rad new music news.
