In Loving Memory of Annie Southworth

Annie

Panache lost one of our oldest agents and colleagues this past week, our dear friend Annie Southworth. Annie had worked with Panache for nearly a decade, and our friendship spanned over 15 years. When she joined forces with Panache, she brought such powerful wisdom, strength and experience to our very young fledgling booking agency. Together we became a power house of a booking team, that was being led by women. When she joined the agency she brought over bands like Oh Sees, No Means No, Kelley Stoltz, Fresh and Onlys and many others to our roster. She was a warrior for all womankind. Her utter love of music, vitality for life and resilient attitude helped form the foundation that Panache thrives on today. The world has suffered a great loss with Annie’s passing. Too soon. #fuck cancer #getyourbodieschecked #tellyourlovedonesyoulovethem

Bikini Kill Reuniting For NYC & LA Shows Later This Year

Bikini Kill are reuniting for a string of shows later this year in New York City and Los Angeles. The lineup will feature the trio of Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, and Kathi Wilcox, along with Erica Dawn Lyle on guitar. It’ll be the first time they’ve played a show since 1997, though last year they briefly reunited to perform one track at a book release party.

Hand Habits' 'Placeholder' Screams With A Sigh

As productive as screaming into the void can be, sometimes the most effective way to air grievances is simply with a sigh. Meg Duffy, who was the longtime lead guitarist for Kevin Morby, switched their focus to Hand Habits in 2017. Duffy’s second album, placeholder, leads off with the title track, a soft yet scathing lamentation of being secondary.

Oh Sees’ John Dwyer talks touring, ‘Smote Reverser,’ soup, snow & more in BV Q&A

John Dwyer is never not busy. When he’s not touring non-stop or making records with Oh Sees (like this year’s awesome Smote Reverser), he’s got his solo project Damaged Bug, and the label he runs, Castle Face, that puts out a dozen or so records a year. He’s slowing things down just a bit this weekend when he brings his pastoral, folky OCS collaboration with onetime Oh See Brigid Dawson and a string section to Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre on Saturday (12/15).

LA Weekly

Hand Habits LA Weekly Feature

Hand Habits is a project from Meg Duffy, an L.A. singer and guitarist from upstate New York who has played with Weyes Blood, Mega Bog and Kevin Morby. The songs on Hand Habits’ 2017 album, Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void), are generally laid-back indie-pop reveries, with such gentle ballads as “Flower Glass” and “Actress” alternating with occasional arty interludes like the sound collage of murmuring voices “Greater L.A. (Scene).”

Tim Presley Talks White Fence, DRINKS, Collaborations, and More

Tim Presley is one of our favorite artists here at WMF for a host of reasons: his steady quality musical output under the White Fence moniker, the significant role he played in a crucial era of post-punk mainstay The Fall, and his contributions as one half of DRINKS are three of those reasons, but there are even more topics we’ve been eager to cover with Tim. Curious about his diverse musical endeavors as well as his upcoming 2019 album, we recently had to the pleasure of conversing with Tim about these subjects and others, including his visual art, past collaborations with Jack Name and Ty Segall, and his return to simple, melodic songwriting.

Alt Citizen Premieres Surfbort's Music Video 'Dope'

Staying sober never seemed so cool. In Surfbort’s latest music video, “Dope”, lead singer Dani Miller sings through her mascara stained tears about leaving drugs behind. She stumbles down the Hollywood walk of fame and straight into her lover’s tinfoil clad arms in a DIY home-video haze (directed by Gilbert Trejo). It’s a slower, more melodic approach than their typical balls to wall punk we all know and love. Subverting society’s beauty standards and social norms amidst coming out about her relationship with drugs, “Dope” is arguably Surfbort’s most personal release to date. Watch below.

Opening for Iceage, Surfbort Is Riding the Freak Wave

The Brooklyn-based quartet is visually and musically stunning, to say the least, and singer Dani Miller is like no one else in rock music right now. Perhaps this is why ex-Strokes and current Voidz member Julian Casablancas snatched them up for his Cult Records label in October of 2017 and put out their new record, Friendship Music, late last month.
