Rough Trade opens tonight with an instore performance by Sky Ferreira

rough-trade

It’s odd that such an iconic brand has chosen to open its New York location with an overrated pop star who we will all have forgotten about in six months. At least we can look forward to Television and Phosphorescent in coming days. That said, you better get there early if you want to see her.
Via Brooklyn Vegan:

The successful London mini-chain finally opens their first NYC store complete with a 250 capacity venue, a cafe run by Five Leaves, a recreation of Donald Glover’s bedroom in Community (no really), and over 20,000 records/CDs (and none of them used). Opening day performances include Sky Ferreira (free entry w/ CD purchase, line opens at 8 AM fyi) at 6:30 PM; and Charles Bradley (free, 9 PM).

Everyone’s getting naked – Leanne Macomber and Sky Ferreira’s NSFW album covers

Ejecta’s Leanne Macomber

From Guardian:

For Leanne Macomber, her new musical project Ejecta isn’t simply a diversion for when she’s not performing as one fifth of chillwave exponents Neon Indian. For her, Ejecta is a character in itself and the perfect way for her to lay her emotions bare, which is apparently why she’s always depicted nude in various press shots. Having spent years creating solo demos on battered four-track recorders, Macomber presented some of them to producer Joel Ford – who has worked on songs for the likes of Autre Ne Veut and Oneohtrix Point Never, as well as being one half of Ford + Lapatin – who re-worked one into a track called Silver.

Check out their new single and their NSFW cover below. They’re playing Glasslands and Cameo next week. [Read more…]

Evidently they were arrested on Friday in Saugerties on their way to the Basilica Hudson festival. From the Daily Freeman’s crime blotter. Oddly the paper printed their home addresses too, which we removed:

Zachary C. Smith, 28,… was arrested by Saugerties police at 12:30 a.m. Saturday and charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, one count of possession of stolen property and one count of aggravated unlicensed driving, all misdemeanors. He was also charged with the violations of unregistered motor vehicle, driving without insurance, unlicensed driver, and having an inadequate exhaust system. Also arrested was Sky T. Ferreira, 21… on misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest. Police said the two were arrested following a traffic stop in the village. Officers stopped a 1990 Ford pickup truck with New Jersey registration after the driver made several vehicle and traffic infractions, police said. Police said a registration check showed the license plates on the truck were stolen and the driver, Smith, was wanted by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office on an outstanding vehicle and traffic warrant. While taking Smith into custody, officers found a plastic bag containing 42 decks of heroin, police said. Police said Ferreira, a passenger in the truck, was found in possession of Ecstasy and resisted arrest. Smith and Ferreira were arraigned in Saugerties Village Court and sent to the Ulster County Jail — Smith in lieu of $2,500 bail and Ferreira in lieu of $1,500 bail.
