In the punk sphere, maturity often connotes an uptick in ambition coupled with a pop-friendly polish (à la Green Day). But the aesthetic arc of Manitoba’s Propagandhi proves that there’s more than one way for punks to grow up. In the years since their peeved yet goofy 1993 debut LP, How to Clean Everything, frontman Chris Hannah, drummer Jord Samolesky et al. have gradually dialed up the heaviness and technicality, honing a sonic punch to match their always-fierce leftist convictions. As heard on 2012′s excellent Failed States, Propagandhi hasn’t stopped pushing. Opening are War on Women and RVIVR (the band behind The Beauty Between, one of our favorite LPs of 2013), equally fierce political-punk crews from Baltimore and Olympia, WA, respectively.

Charli XCX to play concert in New York’s Webster Hall

Charli XCX will be joined by such musical acts as Swedish pop artist Elliphant and Femme.

Her single “Boom Clap” is already a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and climbing, after charting for 10 weeks. The song was recently nominated for “Choice: Love Song” at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. It is a track from her forthcoming studio album, Sucker, which will be out on October 21.

The British songstress collaborated with Iggy Alazea on her hit single “Fancy,” which spent seven weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Both Charli XCX and Azalea co-penned the tune.
As a solo artist, Charli XCX is in the running for a 2014 MTV Video Music Award (VMA) for “MTV Artist to Watch” for her music video of “Boom Clap,” and she will be performing the song at the pre-show event, while the video for her collaboration with Azalea, “Fancy,” which features Charli XCX, is nominated for “Video of the Year,” “Best Female Video” and “Best Pop Video.”

Cocorosie @ Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)

Cocorosie, Antony & Kembra Pfahler @ Tokion in 2005 (more)

Cocorosie have been somewhat quiet in 2014 after a very active 2013 that saw the sisters release a new album, tour Europe, play a small show at Paper Box, a big show at Webster Hall as part of another tour, and a free show at Brooklyn Bowl. They also played Webster Hall in 2012.

This month (on 8/23), you can catch them at the First City Festival in Monterey. It was their only scheduled 2014 date until now… Bianca and Sierra Casady will return to Webster Hall in NYC on September 7 (SOON), and with a very special show! They’re getting the gang back together. The official NY show billing is: “CocoRosie with special guests: Antony & Kembra Pfahler And The Girls Of Karen Black, and guest Artist/DJ Johanna Constantine.” If you’re a fan and familiar with all those names, you’re probably already clicking the ticket link. An exclusive BrooklynVegan presale starts NOW (8/12 at noon) and runs for 24 hours. The password is FUTUREFEMINISM. if you miss it, general sale begins Wednesday.

The NYC show is a benefit “in support of their upcoming exhibition FUTURE FEMINISM at The Hole on the Bowery (Sept 11-27).” That will feature “13 nights of lectures, conferences and performances in the gallery space”. AND:

These 5 artists (Antony, Kembra, Johanna, Bianca & Sierra Cassidy) have developed a series of vivid tenets for FUTURE FEMINISM during 3 years of intensive retreats. Collectively, they represent a frontier feminist point of view. FUTURE FEMINISM is a call to arms to reorganize ourselves as a species and affirm archetypally feminine values. Tenet Number 1: THE SUBJUGATION OF WOMEN AND EARTH IS ONE IN THE SAME

For as long as I can remember, I’ve associated Cocorosie with their friend Antony Hegarty, in part thanks to Devendra Banhart. Antony’s fame increased Cocorosie’s fame, and they’ve opened for him countless times, collaborating all along the way. Antony, who appears on at least three Cocorosie albums, is that way with his artistic friends, and they’re that way with him. Take Antony’s 2005 Bowery Ballroom show as an example. At that one Antony joined Cocorosie for a song during their opening set which was before an interpretive dance by Antony’s old friend Johanna Constantine which was before Antony’s set which included guest appearances by both Boy George and Rufus Wainwright. The colorful Kembra Pfahler-led band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black covered an Antony song that same year which is the same year Antony, Kembra and Cocorosie got together for a creativity conference two days after Antony played Carnegie Hall with special guests Lou Reed (RIP) and Jimmy Scott (RIP). The list of examples like that goes on. Webster Hall in September will be a special one.

In related news, visual art by Antony will be on display as part of a group show called ‘Works on Paper’ at Sikema Jenkins Gallery (Sep. 2nd-Oct. 4th).


“Last Friday Night” singer Katy Perry spent her Saturday night at Webster Hall at the after-party for the Mad Decent Block Party in Coney Island. Webster Hall GM Gerard McNamee welcomed Perry and boyfriend DJ Diplo, aka Thomas Wesley Pentz, to the legendary East Village concert hall, where they joined nearly 3,000 other partygoers including nightlife VIP Jerry Brandt, who owned Webster Hall in the ’80s, when it was known as the Ritz. It was a quick stop for Perry. She performed in Chicago Friday and had a Sunday concert in Michigan.

Like a pan of burnt brownies tossed in the trash, gone are the days of Kreayshawn collaborations and White Girl Mob drama, clearing the smoke for the Bay Area baker Lil Debbie to pursue her solo career. Between Riff Raff duets and colorful music videos on singles like “Bake a Cake,” “Slot Machine,” and “Ratchets,” Lil Debbie has proven she’s more than just a party persona, but a cake baking, gambling, and drug-taking fashionista and lifestyle influencer. She added fitness guru to the list most recently after releasing “Work the Middle,” the lead single off her upcoming EP California Sweetheart Pt. 2, which is slated for release on August 5th. The single itself has a much spicier hook than typical LD tracks and an all around fuller sound. If it’s any indication of the rest of her new shit, it’s gonna be so hot you’ll need an oven mitt.

Wiz Khalifa Brings The Hits At Intimate Webster Hall Show – XXL

Wiz Khalifa’s career hit a turning point in 2010 when the Pittsburgh native declined an invite to go on tour with Drake and instead headlined his own nationwide tour. Traveling across the country in support of his critically-acclaimed Kush & Orange Juice mixtape and monster single, “Black And Yellow,” off his then-upcoming album Rolling Papers, Wiz sold out all 50 dates. With a proven loyal fan base, Wiz showed the hip-hop world that he was ready to take the leap to superstardom.

In the four years since the landmark “Waken Baken” tour, Wiz dropped Rolling Papers, won best new artist at the 2011 BET Awards, released his second major label album, O.N.I.F.C., achieved platinum status with the single, “Work Hard, Play Hard,” married one of the most beautiful women in the game and had a healthy baby boy. Not many modern artists can say they have had as good a run.

Wiz’s current Under The Influence Of Music Tour has shown just how far the Taylor Gang head honcho has come. Co-headlining with Jeezy, Khalifa has been playing shows in arenas that fit tens of thousands of people and has appeared on some of the summer’s biggest festival stages as one of the main draws.

But for one night only, Wiz took it back to the Kush & Orange Juice days with an intimate concert at New York City’s Studio At Webster Hall. Hosted by SiriusXM’s hip-hop channel Shade 45 to help promote his upcoming album, Blacc Hollywood, Wiz invited 400 of his biggest fans for a high-energy show that, realistically, may never happen again.

Introduced by hip-hop radio legend Sway, who dubbed the rapper “one of the realest artists the game has ever seen,” a laid back Wiz touched the stage wearing white sunglasses complete with joint in hand. Backed by his band, “Kush & Orange Juice,” Khalifa began to reel off his growing catalogue of hits, beginning with the aforementioned “Work Hard, Play Hard.” Fittingly, Wiz then ran off a series of mixtape bangers including Kush & Orange Juice’s, “Mezmerized,” the Geto Boys cover, “Damn It Feels Good To Be A Taylor,” and Cabin Fever’s pulsating, “Taylor Gang.”

With the energy riding high, Trap Wiz made a cameo. Transitioning to cuts from 28 Grams like “James Bong,” Wiz showed off just how much range his music has. From there he ran through the fan favorite, “Black And Yellow,” and spit his verse from Mike WiLL Made It’s Miley Cyrus-featuring “23.”

Wiz then gave the fans in attendance a few tracks off of Blacc Hollywood. From the sound of it, the album will not stray from Wiz’s formula of bass-heavy beats with rhymes about smoking multiple joints, sex with multiple women, and hitting multiple clubs to party all night. While it has been done a thousand times by a thousand different rappers, Wiz has found his lane and keeps it fresh with a sound that is expected, but never boring.

Khalifa then closed the night with the Problem and Iamsu!-aided “Everything About Me,” the Snoop Dogg collab, “Young, Wild And Free,” and jumped into the crowd for the hit, “We Dem Boyz.” After an hour’s worth of hits, Wiz reminded everyone that it’s still Taylor Gang or Die. —Peter Walsh
