Beastie Boys new album and videos

The Beastie Boys are preparing to release their brand new all instrumental album "The Mix Up". If the two music video they have posted on their website are any indication of what the rest of the album is going to be like we are definitely in store for one awesome album. I have been listening to a lot of old Beastie Boys specifically "Check Your Head"(which imo is their best) and the infamous "Live at Randy's Rodeo" bootleg. But these new vids are just getting me so stoked.

I can only hope they add a few more North American tour dates. I would love to see one of these all instrumental shows. But for now I will just have to settle for their set at V-Fest which I am not sure will be all instrumental. Check on this video of "Off the Grid" or head over to their website to see more, also check out this great photo set of new B-Boy photos.

!!! @ Bowery Ballroom

The !!! show at the Bowery Ballroom last night was off the charts. The energy level and fun level were blown through the roof. It seemed like the whole audience danced and rocked out from start to finish which rarely happens at any New York City show. Ace will probably have a better review up on Hidden Track later or check out Brooklyn Vegan or the Music slut for more reviews.
A few more photos here.

Silversun Pickups @ Webster Hall

It took about half the show for both the band and the audience to get into it but in the end I thought it was a pretty good show.
