“Heavy Trash Announce 10th Anniversary Tour”

https://www.facebook.com/heavytrashofficial“The New York trashmen are kicking off a quick trip early next month, with the tour highlighting material from their 2005 self-titled debut, 2007’s Going Way Out with Heavy Trash and 2009’s Midnight Soul Serenade, a press release confirms. Additionally, the pair will apparently be premiering new tunes from as as-yet-undetailed fourth full-length release to be delivered at a later date.” – exclaim.ca

BrooklynVegan.com, Exclaim.ca and CMJ.com have all posted short articles about the new Heavy Trash tour.

The CMJ.com article also includes “Bloodshot Bill’s 10 Favorite Bands With More Than Five Members”:

You mean a band with at least six members? Geez, that is too many people! Most bands I like don’t have that many folks in them, maybe five tops (Sonics, etc.), but it usually just gets too cluttered after that for my taste. I don’t even think I can name 10:

Little Richard & the Upsetters
Sun Ra Arkestra
King Khan & The Shrines
Louis Prima
Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps
Town Hall Party house band
The Coasters

Karen O – The Manderley Bar, The McKittrick Hotel, New York

http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2014/09/karen_o_began_h.html#moreDuring the Karen O performance at The Manderley Bar, The McKittrick Hotel, New York, US on 10 September 2014 Russell Simins played tambourine for the song Days Go By.

SET LIST: NYC Baby / Ooo / Indian Summer / Rapt / Other Side / So Far / Beast / Comes the Night / Sunset Sun / Hideaway / San Fran / King / Body / Native Korean Rock / Day Go By
encore: Singalong / The Moon Song

nb. Some of these songs were previously performed by Native Korean Rock & The Fishnets in 2008

“Karen was accompanied by an all star band comprising of LA’s Moses Sumney (who also performed his own song) and NYC’s Holly Miranda. Her Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmate Nick Zinner played on a few of the songs too. Russell Simins (of Blues Explosion), who drummed for Karen and Nick at MoMA, was there on the side playing tambourine for a song. The lo-fi Crush songs sounded great filled out with the additional instruments.” – brooklynvegan.com

Article / Photos: brooklynvegan.com/archives/2014/09/karen_o_began_h.html#more

“There were times when the gentle songs on record almost became full-on rockers, as when Zinner rejoined for “Day Go By” (as did a tambourine played by someone Karen introduced as Russell Simmons, whom I couldn’t see but I can’t imagine was that Russell Simmons).” – consequenceofsound.net
