Beyondo, Great Elk, Ego Puppets + More play Silver Sound Music Fest

On November 9 (tonight) Brooklyn Bowl will host the 2nd annual Silver Sound Music Video Film Festival + Band Battle. The evening will begin at 7pm with opening act Dinosaur Feathers, last year’s Band Battle victors, with the Festival itself commencing at 8pm hosted by Candy Slice.

This year's competitors include a lot of NYC based artists: Beyondo (in the picture, the solo project of a member of Antibalas) Stereogum's favorite Ego Puppets, Great Elk, Lisa Jaeggi, Lucius (recently highlighted by NYTimes as one of their picks for 2010 CMJ bands to watch for).

Among the 21 music videos being shown, there will be offerings from popular Brooklyn Bands Savior Adore, Surfer Blood, Wakey Wakey, and Lacrymosa.


NYC Artists on the rise: Lucius, live at Brooklyn Bowl Tonight

With a name more appropriate for a Roman general, Lucius is actually the project of peaceful and talented songstresses Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, of Bostonian origins. Their delicate voices draw gentle harmonized lullabies accompanied by sparse arrangements of acoustic guitars and occasional piano and simple percussions. The duo has just completed an east coast tour synchronized with a residency at Rockwood Music Hall, and will perform tonight (11.09) at Brooklyn Bowl within the MVFilmFest (see blog entry underneath this one).


Nightlands’ Forget the Mantra 12” Vinyl Available from Secretly Canadian!

Dave Hartley’s solo project Nightlands releases Forget the Mantra on vinyl today via Secretly Canadian! Keep snatching up our artists, record labels. We love it! It’s nice to see our man who keeps it tight on the low-end for one of our faves The War on Drugs getting his time in the spotlight. Building hypnotic soundscapes with collages of sampled conversations, glorious beats, delicately layered computer generated sounds, and angelic choir-like vocals, Hartley creates an experimental album that you can easily lose yourself in. Still refusing to dust off that old record player? What’s wrong with you? Lucky Forget the Mantra is digitally available here for a super reasonable five bucks! Just grab your copy already and crank it up to eleven with that special nug you’ve been saving. - The Deli Staff

“Philly Sings Philly” Is Back w/Hezekiah Jones at The Fire Nov. 9

Back with the second installment of “Philly Sings Philly”, one of our absolute favorite folk artists Hezekiah Jones, a.k.a. Raph Cutrufello, will be headlining this evening. Now, I’m one of those people who’d rather hear only Cutrufello’s originals, but I’m sure it’ll be interesting to hear which local acts have touched him to the core. He has plenty of material to be inspired by from his many door duty nights at The Fire. And I’m guessing there will be a number of Hezekiah Jones covers and other local favorites tonight from buddies Suzie Brown, Marc Silver, Mason Porter and many more. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., $8, 8pm, 21+ (Photo by Lisa Schaffer) - H.M. Kauffman
