there isn't a lot of information to post aside from the address. It's a great space, some people live there, probably a good idea to BYOB, etc.

is there a cover? it wont "sell out", will it? is that even relevant?

peter smith (plsmith), Friday, 16 July 2004 13:29 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I looked for a cover on nyhappenings, but couldn't find one. I'd guess somewhere between $5 - $7, probably no more than the latter. And no, I've never heard of a Mighty Robot show "selling out," even when they've been super-packed.

thanks for the info, stence. im totally psyched.

peter smith (plsmith), Friday, 16 July 2004 13:42 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

have fun. Unfortunately I can't make it, missing Oneida for like the billionth time.

have you ever seen em?

BYOB is the way to do it.

yeah but beware: that l'il bodega 'round the corner sometimes closes early.

somebody please say hello to ilx0r hurlothrumbo (keyboards in oneida) from gygax! and tell him i love baseball is reopened and welcomes Mets-talk in open arms.

John, their drummer, was kind enough to host in his home for something like 3 or 4 days the band I'm managing when they played in NYC. We're still very very grateful.

I'd be all over it if I wasn't in Missouri.

Yeah, that sounds reasonable.

They're playing Saturday at Northsix with Parts&Labor and Ex Models. I'd especially like to see Ex Models. Not positive I will go because I'll be getting ready to travel, but I thought I throw this out there.

Abbadavid Berman (Hurting), Tuesday, 4 April 2006 13:44 (eleven years ago) Permalink

ex-models are sorta excruciatingly bad now. tho maybe kid will be playing drums with them? last time i "saw" them i think it was a drum machine (stayed in another room).

hstencil (hstencil), Tuesday, 4 April 2006 13:50 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I'm not crazy about the Parts&Labor stuff I'm hearing online -- I'm sure they'll be fun live, especially with their sick drummer, but they sound kind of Lite--ning Bolt. A bit too tuneful and jammy for my taste.

As far as Ex-Models, I like some of the new stuff I've heard, but I haven't seen them live in a couple years.

Abbadavid Berman (Hurting), Tuesday, 4 April 2006 13:52 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Ex-Models were really disappointing when I saw them last summer. Oneida is consistently great, though.

I heard these dudes were big-time grups.

M@tt He1geson (Matt Helgeson), Tuesday, 4 April 2006 21:59 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Grups? Like on Star Trek? The "Miri" Episode? w/ Michael J. Pollard?

Kid is now playing drums in Ex Models, fyi.

aw man that first mighty robot show i saw was so awesome. you dudes getting ready to drop a ton of splits, hurlo?

pssst - badass revolutionary art! (plsmith), Thursday, 6 April 2006 14:57 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Nothing to do with this show but I was listening to The Wedding and I can see what you were saying about the vocals before, Hurting. It does kind of drag things down a bit since the tunes, guitars, and synths are great. So I wonder if maybe the older stuff, where the vocals were less central, may have been stronger. I should pull out E1T1 and Secret Wars some time.

Peter, we have a new album out in July; a split w/Kinski in the fall; a couple more splits and a triple CD in 2007. Much work is being done...

In the meantime, can there please be more talk about Star Trek and less about NYC?

I am going to see Oneida in London on Saturday - assuming there is still a London to see them in.

The New Dirty Vicar, Thursday, 11 August 2011 15:58 (six years ago) Permalink

fyi, just checked their website to see if they're playing the netherlands (notheydont) and there's a message saying that the venue for the london show has changed to "the lexington".

Some of the new tracks on What's Your Sign sound better or worse during one listening session or another (five so far), but "Civic Weather" gets me every time.

the Brah tapes are also great if anyone snagged those a couple yrs back.
