No Age to perform a Live Score at SIFF

5534
No Age will perform an original live score in accompaniment to Jean-Jacques Annaud’s Césár winning film, The Bear (France, 1988). The debut of this never before seen or heard work takes place on Friday, June 12, at the Triple Door at 7:00pm (all-ages) and 9:30pm (21+). Tickets are $20 in advance, $22 day of show. Tickets go on sale May 8 and will be available online here and here, and by phone at 206.324.9996.

No Age inspires its audience with live shows that are an exploration of possibilities: a guitar laid over a resonating drum head, effect loops woven together like beautiful harmonies, pop songs as performance art, a duo that sounds like the gale force of rock history delivered through a wind tunnel. Their original score to The Bear has been created and crafted specifically for this one-night only experience at SIFF.

Dean and Randy from No Age recently teamed up with the folks at Altamont Apparel to commission a series of t-shirts by some of their favorite artists based on the theme “Get Well Soon.” And, right now through next Friday, you can enter a contest on the Altamont site to win these shirts, plus a bunch of No Age stuff we gave them. The Altamont folks gave us a handful of the Get Well Soon shirts and we are, as of now, giving them away to the first 5 people to buy No Age stuff from us. There are 3 larges and 2 mediums. Write “No Age Get Well Large” in the comments section of your order if you want the large shirt and “No Age Get Well Medium” in the comments section if you want the medium shirt. First come, first served, while supplies last, et cetera.

SXSW Day Parties

5371

And without further ado, and practically zero fanfare, here are the (mostly free!) SXSW parties with SUB POP bands!

A Form of Paying Attention March 2009

5351

Alright, guys, fuck yeah! Two thousand nine is really picking up speed here at HQ and we’ve got some (dare I say) great stuff for you in the lovely month of March. On March 10 we will release the new HANDSOME FURS record on CD & LP. If you order FACE CONTROL before 3/10 we will include a CDR with 4 live album tracks recorded in Seattle. Buttons, stickers, blah blah blah, yes, you get that, too! Also, we’re doing a thing now that lets you stream the whole album once you purchase from subpop.com. That’s cool, right? March 10 is also the release date for the MARK SULTAN (the BBQ half of the King Khan & BBQ show) seven inch “Hold On” b/w “I Hear a New World”. The songs are great and so is the art/packaging. Get with it.

The OBITS record I BLAME YOU comes out on March 24th and I couldn’t be more excited—this is my record of the year. (No other records need apply.) We’ll give you a lenticular (Google it) postcard designed by the band if you pre-order, plus butts and sticks, AND the ability to stream! All this and nothing more if you order before March 23! That same day is the day we release BUNNY GETS PAID by RED RED MEAT in deluxe form including a 7-song 2nd disc of alternate, demo and single versions of album tracks, plus b-sides, covers and a previously unreleased song from the same era (“St. Anthony’s Jawbone”), all put together by the band. GET IT!

March is also the month of SXSW in Austin, TX. As has become our custom, we will be having a little Sub Pop showcase on two stages on Thursday, March 19 at the Radio Room. Here’s the sitch:
8:00 No Age (outside)
9:00 Red Red Meat (outside)
9:30 Mark Sultan (inside)
10:00 Obits (outside)
10:30 Daniel Martin Moore (inside)
11:00 Vetiver (outside)
11:30 Tiny Vipers (inside)
12:00 Blitzen Trapper (outside)
12:30 Pretty & Nice (inside)
1:00 Handsome Furs (outside)

No Age + Nardwuar = Nard Wage?

5336

Ever wanted to know what No Age has in common with 2 Live Crew? (Not much!) Curious about what food both Lenny Kravitz and No Age enthusiastically endorse? (Parisian Falafel!) Still can’t figure out if No Age actually did perform a Nirvana cover at SP20? (They didn’t!) Dean’s the drummer, right? (Yes!)

Find out these things and so much more in Nardwuar the Human Serviette’s interview with No Age!
