Hypekillaz: The Shit You Need


For All You Indie Kids… by DLOOS

Death Cab For Cutie is stopping in the city for the second time during their tour in promotion of their most recent album Narrow Stairs, which in my opinion is 10x better than their 2005 release Plans, which is essentially a single droning song for about an hour. In comparison Narrow Stairs, has a much darker and heavier feel than any of their previous albums, relying strongly on the use of a low bass and heavy piano sound. They will be performing in South Jersey on October 5th at The House of Blues in Atlantic City, and also performing in the city a day later at Radio City Music Hall. Tickets are running about $40-50 depending on seating.

Weezer is currently touring in promotion of The Red Album, their first good album since their 1996 release Pinkerton, widely regarded as their best album and a great influence on modern emo music. Appropriately they have tagged two modern, relatively emo acts to tour with them: Angels & Airwaves and Tokyo Police Club. They will be hitting Madison Square Garden on September 24. Tickets will probably be pretty expensive, assuming they have yet to sell out.

And for all you true indie fans who have any understanding of music history, three classic bands will be doing two (and only two) shows together on September 25 and 26, a Thursday and Friday. These three bands are Meat Puppets (Nirvana’s almost sole influence), Dinosaur Jr. (One of the biggest influences on modern alternative music and all of modern rock songwriting) and Built To Spill (Early 90’s indie band) performing their true adventure into jam music, Perfect From Now On. Tickets are $30 or $40 but sadly the Friday is already sold out so rush to get tickets for Thursday, this is a once in a lifetime chance.

Goodies:

Built To Spill : Perfect From Now On
Dinosaur Jr. : You’re Living All Over Me
Meat Puppets : Meat Puppets II

WHAT?????????

Cincinnati Bengals receiver has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., a switch that became official this week, according to several media reports. Johnson, who lives in Miami, didn’t return a message left on his cell phone Friday night. 

This is pushing it for me with the whole Chad Johnson Chad Ocho Cinco attention Stunts. This is by far the stupidest thing I have seen in years. But hey… if he performs, who cares?

This beat is basically on that “late 90’s/early 2000’s” dopeness.  Produced by Jake-one, this track is pretty good, try it out…let us know what you think.  

 

“The Truth”-Freeway and Brother Ali.  Prod: Jake-one

Both Free and Ali drop some relatively ill rhymes, except I’m not feeling Brother Ali’s sing-song spitting…



Two Big Tours Rolling Around by DLOOS

Gym Class Heroes are a band I see written about a lot on Hypekillaz
and currently they are touring with the most random band I can think of, The Roots. How these two bands ended up touring together is way beyond me, but they are both notorious for putting on great live shows. They will be rolling around the City on October 28th, a Tuesday, at the Roseland Ballroom, tickets are running about $50. But if you really want a GREAT experience, and are willing to go on a long car ride for it they are playing on Halloween at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, which is conveniently on a Friday this year and tickets are $5-10 dollars cheaper.

The other big tour is Wu-Tang veteran, Method Man, touring with his local Brick City protege, Redman. The two recently performed as a single act at Rock The Bells in June and July and are now touring as a duo separately as well. They will be playing Nokia Theater Times Square on Friday, October 17 which I would strongly recommend purchasing tickets to. This venue is small so there is no way you won’t be close to the stage, as well being the best acoustically designed venue in the city I have seen a show at yet, meaning it will sound the best. Tickets are cheaper than The Roots at only $40.

Method Man and Redman : Blackout!

The Roots : Rising Down
