Video: Quicksand at Saint Vitus (New Year’s Eve)

photo 1From Glassland’s DIIV-headlined send-off to The Hold Steady’s Music Hall of Williamsburg bash, there was certainly no shortage of awesome options for live music fans on NYE. For the 90s crust clique, however, there was only one place to be (per usual): Saint Vitus for an ultra-rare appearnace by local post-hardcore legends, Quicksand. Tickets were midtown-level pricey and the 250-cap venue sold out at the pop of a cork, so if you didn’t (or couldn’t) make it, don’t stress, we have the full-set video below. Happy New Year, heshers.

BangOn NYC! Time + Space NYE Party Returns to Brooklyn

BangOnNYE2015

Holy crap! We’re already a week into December. How did that happen? Is someone screwing with the continuum? Well that means if you haven’t made New Year’s Eve plans, you better get on it. We all know anywhere near Times Square is a total nightmare, and places like Webster Hall become playgrounds for the barely legal bridge and tunnel bunch. Oof. Save yourself the headache (you’re going to have one of those the day after anyway), and make the right choice by into the wormhole this New Year’s Eve at BangOn NYC!’s annual Time + Space Party, taking place at a Brooklyn warehouse TBD.

Flaming Lips live streaming New Year's Eve concert

It happens every year: We get invited to way more NYE parties than we can possibly attend. And now Wayne Coyne drops this on us. RollingStone.com and iClips are providing a live stream of the Flaming Lips performing their rad album The Soft Bulletin in it’s entirety (a concept that is so hot right now) tomorrow night in their home town of Oklahoma City. The show starts at 10 p.m.

If you don’t plan on being alone in front of your computer on New Year’s Eve (unless there’s another blizzard), the performance will be re-broadcast Sunday night at 9 p.m. Perfect for anyone who will still be hungover and not want to get out of bed. They thought of everything!
