Here is the official music video for “Change” by The Young Veins:
Rooney and The Young Veins (and Black Gold) play tomorrow (6/19/2010) at LA’s Henry Fonda Theatre.
Here’s the second installment of Rooney’s acoustic videos (more Twitter followers = more videos):
Here’s a song (and great photo slide show) from the new The Young Veins album, called “Cape Town”:
Memorial Day (Monday May 31, 2010), The Young Veins and The Like played at The Echo in LA (Night 4 of 4 of The Like’s May residency).
Har Mar Superstar, Alex Greenwald, and Morgan Nagler of The Whispertown 2000 were in attendance. Why were these shows at the Echo free? They definitely should not have been free, in After The Show’s opinion.
The Like appear in the latest issue of Teen Vogue (see photo below), and started their US tour last night. They play in NY on June 8th.
After The Show recorded “Change” by The Young Veins and “Catch Me If You Can” by The Like from the Echo:
For the last song of The Young Veins’ set, Z Berg of The Like sang a duet with Ryan Ross:
Yesterday Michael Runion and his backup band The Royal Family, along with The Young Veins, played at LA’s Echo.
Michael Runion opened the show with “Our Time Will Come” — starting subdued with just vocals and his guitar, and having his full band come in by the end of the song. He also played the more up-tempo songs “You and Me” and “Till We Have To.”
Unfortunately, he didn’t play “Soft Hands,” “Carol Caroline,” or “The Daylight” — but he made up for it by inviting Z Berg (The Like) onstage for his last song. They played a new JJAMZ song — it was the best song of the entire concert (title is unknown, possibly is “Dancing With The Dead”).
As soon as The Young Veins came onstage, many people in the audience were excited to see Ryan Ross…Upon seeing Ryan take the stage, a girl behind me exclaimed that she “cried” as soon as she saw him…I guess he has a loyal following from Panic At The Disco?
Highlights of The Young Veins’ set included “Take a Vacation,” “Change,” and “Maybe I Will, Maybe I Won’t” featuring Jon Walker on lead vocals.
This show was The Young Veins’ first show ever, and they embark on a national tour in a few days. For tour dates head to their MySpace.
Below is video of The Young Veins playing “The Other Girl” from the show:
Also in attendance were Tennessee Thomas (The Like), Annie Monroe (The Like), Blake Mills, Jason Boesel, Danielle Haim?, Dave Rawlings, Tony Berg, and Alex Greenwald.
(Two other bands, Smith Westerns and Pearl Harbor finished the early Saturday evening show).
UPDATE: To read Spin’s review of the show, click here. Spin reported that Jenny Lewis and Edward Sharpe were in the audience, which may not be accurate. Maybe they mistook Tennessee Thomas for Jenny Lewis?
At After The Show, we’re looking forward to 3 upcoming debut albums by…the Young Veins, Alex Greenwald, and Jason Boesel. These albums are all either currently being recorded or are in the final stages of completion.
To hear a song by the Young Veins (two ex-Panic at the Disco! members, Ryan Ross and Jon Walker), go to the band’s MySpace.
To keep tabs on Alex Greenwald’s debut solo album, follow him on Twitter. It will be interesting to hear his own music apart from the Phantom Planet label. Interesting note: Greenwald produced the Young Veins’ debut album.
Jason Boesel (drummer of Rilo Kiley and Conor Oberst’s Mystic Valley Band) is the last of the 4 members of Rilo Kiley to produce a solo/side-project album.
Follow him on Twitter for details and information.
