New Shows in the New Year

Monday the 17th is a holiday so come on out and don’t be shy about staying out late.

Hey, hey! The next show’s on Mother’s Day.

Show Recap/SfB Residency Night

2010 is shaping up to be a good year. Monday and Tuesday’s jaunts up and down I-95 had some of the biggest, tightest, and most fun shows I’ve ever done. It was excellent seeing so many old friends and it was genuinely energizing to play in front of so many new faces. Big thanks to Cosmic Vibes and the End of Irony for helping get the word out! Special thanks to Poingly for joining me on this East Coast yo-yo and to the Escape Artist for letting us open things up in DC.

I’m currently looking to take a few easy weeks to write some more material for Big Really. In the meantime, you can catch me backing up the Bees at our next residency night this Tuesday.

Feb Shows

I’ll be playing a couple of shows at the end of the month, one of which will be my first showing in NYC in almost a year. Both shows will be with NYC electronic pop provocateur Poingly. The DC show will also feature DC post-hardcore quartet the Escape Artist. These will be my first full sets of 2010 and should be appropriately exciting.

And don’t forget about the Bees’ show this Tuesday at Velvet Lounge!

Justyn with a Y joins Spelling for Bees

I was recently admitted into DC folk/punk/indie/whatever  music collective Spelling for Bees. The Bees have 50+ members skilled at a variety of conventional and unconventional instruments. They put on monthly shows in the District presenting the members’ creative talents as they perform original songs along with interpretations on specific themes and moods. My first time out as part of the swarm will be on Tuesday February 2 at the Velvet Lounge, where we will be paying tribute to Minor Threat, Fugazi, and all things Dischord related. I called dibs on “Target”.

BrightestYoungThings Mention

BrightestYoungThings.com had some things to say about the show tonight, mostly about the Coits but the others get a mention in there too.

(original post: http://www.brightestyoungthings.com/events/the-coits-macgregor-burns-justyn-velvet-lounge/)

The last time I saw the Coits was at Dahlak: they threw plates against the wall, cut themselves with the shards, started several fights– temporarily ruined several of my close friendships. And with $2 natty bohs until midnight- expect the worst.

Read our interview with The Coits

The Coits play with Justyn, Macgregor Burns
Velvet Lounge
$2 natty bohs til midnight, $4 rail all night long!

Come on out!

Lineup Addition for 6/10

The lineup of bands for the Velvet Lounge show will now include DC punk band The Coits. This band includes none other than Simon of Chaosrexmachinae. This man shreds.
