Crazy Pills at BK night bazaar

We are pleased to be kicking off this 12th of April evening at 9pm for The Village Voice / Seaport Music Festival’s showcase at Brooklyn Night Bazaar in Greenpoint.

Thrills galore on stage to follow with NY’s favorite thrashy punk headliners Hunters, Canada’s gloss rock PUP (EP release, congratulations gentlemen) and Brooklyn’s badasses Big Ups.

Be sure to get there early for DJ Village Voice and to hang at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with us.

All ages. Free. There is one Crazy Pills belly shirt left.


Dearest darlings,

This summer is an eventful one for we three.

Kicking off the  long-awaited spring season, we are pleased to return to the venerable Death By Audio for a showcase presented by the ever-amazing NYC Taper on Tuesday, April 8th.

Burn off Monday this coming Tuesday night with raging real-life NY Dolls The Whiskey Bitches, odd rockers (think Wire meets Devo meets Butthole Surfers) Idiot Son and thrashpunk friends (ex-NO FUN) 56K.

The event page is here should you wish to return s'il vous plaît -

We hope to see you there.


Amanda, Eddie and Jim




SQUARE ZEROS: Square Zeros #9: Amanda B. (Crazy Pills, Adolescence, Nakanaka Yaru Na, Yamamba, Useless Chairkicker Loves Dawn)

The fine young cannibals of Sunset Guns, Mr. Derek Hawkins and Mr. Jon Mann were kind enough to hit Crazy Pills central and interview frontman Amanda about her love affair with rock and roll. Have a listen! (Shout out to Keala and Lisa S. of The Nervous Breakdowns, Paul Ray, Chitoku and Izumi and Maki and David Hand.)


On Wednesday, January 29th from 8pm, please come to Silent Barn at 603 Bushwick Avenue near the J/M/Z train lines in Brooklyn, NY. The evening will be opened with the satisfying Replacements cum Pavement sounds of Paper Fleet. The delightfully bizarro punks united in…Devo? of Milk Dick will precede the bratty pop rock offerings of yours truly. Finally, the cowpunks of Gunfight! will headline this evening of Brooklyn’s finest current interpretations of rock.

Concerned citizens of the world with excellent taste in music:

You are invited to a benefit show for the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines on Saturday January 11th at Shea Stadium in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The evening features Merge Records’ Versus and several rising Brooklyn indie bands, including yours truly.
All proceeds from this show will be sent to the American Red Cross’ Disaster Relief efforts to the Typhoon Haiyan survivors.

Shea Stadium | 20 Meadow Street | Brooklyn, NY (near Grand St. L)

Doors 7pm, $10 


Beloved Merge records college rockers - the 90s never died.

"…impeccable pop with a touch of human frailty." - NY Times

pow wow!

Nick Lowe meets the Walkmen; together they bridge the generation gap over mutual agreement of the Velvet Underground’s lasting legacy.

"The melodies are non-stop, the vibe laid-back but somehow menacing and sunny at the same time, and the harmonies lift the whole thing to a new level. " - The L Magazine

Crazy Pills

A surfy-garage pop trio raised in the 90s doing guitar-based rock as the Stones and The Kinks imagined.

"Crazy Pills does jangle-happy garage-pop with heavy girl-group overtones." - Time Out NY

Quiet Loudly

This is their final appearance together, we are sad to say.

Psychedelic shoegazer soul featuring members of NAAM, Gunfight!, Miniboone, Clouder.

"Their music enjoys the varnish of a swirling blaze of electric guitar and in this respect recalls the approach taken this year by another band, Dinosaur Jr., in which the guitar takes front and center stage." - Tiny Mixtapes

The Planes

Lo-fi indie rock from Brooklyn.

"…a lo-fi sounding take to the world of upbeat indie music." - Indie Bands Blog

Let’s Be Loveless

Melodic indie pop band with boy/girl vocals.

"The band is as fun as they are emotional, as intimate as they are arena rock. This is shoegaze for people who can’t stand still." - Deli Magazine NYC
