We are so excited to announce that Sirius XMU will be LIVE broadcasting Northside's Guided by Voices and Surfer Blood performances on June 18, plus band interviews and other exciting content straight from the Steve Madden Stage at McCarren Park. So, in other words, if you're not there, you're going to be able to listen in and get mad jealous of those who are.

YACHT, Thee Oh Sees and More Added to Lineup

Posted on Thu, May 19, 2011 at 2:45 PM



Another day, another band announcement. On this go-around, we've got YACHT performing as part of a DFA showcase (RIP LCD) at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday, June 19, as well as Thee Oh Sees taking part in the Tell All Your Friends showcase at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, June 18, right on the heels of releasing the latest in their garage rock canon, Castlemania. (You haven't lived until you've seen Thee Oh Sees at least once, we'll go on record saying.) Check below for the most up-to-date lineup, including, holy crap, Prurient playing their first NYC show in two years, Ed Askew, Magik Markers, Sun Airway, White Rainbow, Laurel Halo and pretty much a who's who in the local music scene.

Tickets to both the DFA and Tell All Your Friends showcases go on sale here and here, respectively, tomorrow at noon. Or, as always, you could buy yourself a badge for $70, which, I know we're biased, but is a pretty awesome price for all these bands (always worth mentioning that badge-holders will be admitted to venues on a first-come, first-serve basis); you can buy one right here, right now.

Atlas Sound, Woods, Mount Eerie, Eleanor Friedberger and Others Playing Shows at St. Cecilia's Church in Greenpoint

St. Cecilia's - COURTESY EMILIO GUERRA

We figured this rainy afternoon was the perfect opportunity to let you in on the latest Northside happenings. This year, in the grand tradition of SXSW (we were jealous of their churches, if you recall), we'll be bringing Atlas Sound, Woods, Eleanor Friedberger, Mount Eerie and a gaggle of special guests to the 800-capacity St. Cecilia's Church in Greenpoint, and we couldn't be more excited about it, frankly.

If I learned anything in my Catholic school upbringing, it's that a church is the ideal location to witness the live incarnation of a Bradford Cox solo project, the album release party for Woods' forthcoming Sun & Shade, the post-Microphones offerings of cult hero Phil Elvrum, and dabblings from the debut solo record (out on Merge, no less) from one of the strangest minds in indie rock. Located at 84 Herbert Street, between Monitor and Henry, it seems safe to say that St. Cecilia's is one of the most beautiful and vital churches in Brooklyn — a true community institution for over 100 years — and it's an honor to have it play such a prominent role in this year's festival. Father Jim, you're the best.

To make matters even better, a hearty batch of showcase bands have been added to the Northside lineup, including Diamond Rings, Porcelain Raft, Light Asylum and a bill curated by the hardest hitting of the 90s revivalists Mr. Dream. Check it out:
