UPDATE: DIIV has now been replaced by Parquet Courts for this event. No word on whether the headliner change is related to Zach’s recent troubles with the law.

Hopefully, DIIV’s Zachary Cole Smith can stay off the smack until then:

Don’t miss out on our big send-off to summer with the next show in the Jansport Bonfire Session event series, as we ride into Brooklyn’s Havemeyer Park on 9/21. Helping us celebrate the changing of the seasons are a local trio of red-hot acts, DIIV, Guards, and Fletcher C Johnson, all of whom will provide just the right shades of rock and roll to greet the fall- and if summer wants to hang around longer after the show, that’s fine, too.

The event is 21+ and you have to RSVP here to attend. You’ll receive an email update with details on transportation and where you’ll need to be to get your wristband to the event. Remember, an RSVP doesn’t guarantee admission, so you’ll need to arrive early to ensure your spot at the show. See you there!

DIIV and Foxygen: SXSW Meltdowns and Rants

SXSW is more interesting than usual this year. First there was this fantastic rant by DIIV frontman Zachary Cole Smith:

“Hi Austin. Fuck SXSW. There… I said it.

Here, the music comes last. 5 minute set-up, no sound check, 15 minute set. The ‘music’ element is all a front, it’s the first thing to be compromised. Corporate money everywhere but in the hands of the artists, at what is really just a glorified corporate networking party. Drunk corporate goons and other industry vampires and cocaine. Everyone is drunk, being cool. ‘Official’ bureaucracy and all their mindless rules. Branding, branding, branding. It’s bullshit… sorry.”
