Nevermind The Posers

See ya in the pit.


Black Taxi and Deadbeat Darling are two of New York City’s strongest drawing bands, and found immediate success at the Bowery Ballroom by selling out their first two performances at the venue.  They’ll return to play the Bowery Ballroom for a third time, in front of what is already approaching a sold-out crowd.

Check out Bill Mayo’s promotional video for the show:

Black Taxi recently crossed the country with their high-energy dance rock act, bringing the show as far west as LA’s Viper Room and hitting major cities in the Southwest and Midwest.  With the release of a brand new music video for “Shoeshine,” the opening track on their album “Things of that Nature,” and a busy tour schedule, BLACK TAXI is hitting the ground running in 2011.


Deadbeat Darling made their debut UK appearance in 2010, and followed the tour with a successful run at CMJ where they were named one of the top 28 acts by BlackBook Magazine.  Their showcase schedule included a sold-out show at The Studio at Webster Hall.  Over the past six months they’ve introduced a variety of new songs, many of which will be included on their forthcoming album.  The new material channels influences that are fresh to the Deadbeat Darling sound.



New Music Videos I’m Obsessed With… August 20, 2010

Up first,  “St. Christopher” by Deadbeat Darling.  This haunting and unique video is incredibly artsy and creative.  It was directed by Ben Smoot using still images.

Next, “Ambling Alp” by Yeasayer, directed by Radical Friend.  Greg Swindasz introduced me to this video and I think we can all agree on one word for this video – trippy.  It’s awesome, check it out.

Finally, “Symphonies” by Dan Black, this version featuring Kid Cudi.  I love this song and think this video is truly one of a kind.  Watch and be amazed!

“Strawberry Swing” by Coldplay is a cool video as well, but I am not able to embed it, so click here to check it out on YouTube.  Enjoy, Happy Friday!
