Wand and Honey at Death By Audio (and possibly, maybe Ty Segall)
Wand, the garage-psych outfit from California that’s been opening for Ty Segall just before he absconds the Land of The Free for the Eurozone, will play a show of their own on Tuesday night at DBA. Oh yeah, and rumor has it Ty Segall might actually show his face as well. Ty’s appearance isn’t completely out of the question — after all, his video for “Goodbye Bread” was shot inside the DIY venue, and DBA is closing soon, meaning this could be his last chance to play a venue he’s clearly pretty fond of. Definitely joining Wand are the local dudes from Honey.
Saturday evening at Silent Barn, the usual bored-looking über-hip were outnumbered by beaming tape nerds manning tables topped with an array of brightly colored cassettes; friendly dudes and girls repped tape labels hailing from Brooklyn and beyond, at the first annual NYC Cassette Fair.
