Nico and Dave here. DARKSIDE is coming to an end, for now. On September 12th, we will be playing our last show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple (lepoissonrouge.com/lpr_events/darkside-brooklyn-masonic-temple-september-12th-2014/).
Here are two songs that we made while working on "Psychic" that didn't make the album.
1/24 - Lady Lamb 3/31 - Lewis Black 4/29 - Whose Live Anyway? 5/3 - Aimee Mann 5/4 - Meat Puppets/ Mike Watt + the Jom & Terry Show 5/5 - Laura Marling 5/24 - Perfume Genius 7/3 - The B52's 7/10 - Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas 7/21 - Blondie/Garbage 8/6 - Sylvan Esso 8/12 - Ron Funches 9/8 - U2/Beck 10-8 Toadies/ Local H 10-29 - Arcade Fire 11/17 - Trevor Noah 11/18 - St. Vincent
I don't know why they'd phrase it like that though if that were the case. Lots of times band members work on solo/side projects, but the bands don't usually make some announcement like that. At least that I remember off hand.
But it doesn't matter, I refuse to believe that Darkside is gone forever. They'll be back blowing my mind at some point in the future
. I wasn't aware thee oh sees had a new line up. That's a bummer.
I know I'm semi hijacking this thread, but WHAT THE FUCK! I hope this 3 piece thing is just temporary. It's really not the same without Brigid and Mike. I mean, John Dwyer is more than enough for me, but maybe he should call this act something other than thee oh sees. It doesn't feel right.
So bummed about this. I couldn't get into their recordings, despite trying multiple times at home before Bonnaroo -- and then their set blew me away this year when I (thankfully!) decided to give them one more chance. Looks like I'll have to give the studio stuff another try.
