Bailiwick Album is Live

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

Well after a lot of anticipation and shit, here it is. Grab the album and tell these kids how great it is.

Bailiwick Takes Troy

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

This Friday, indie mandolincore darlings Bailiwick will be playing a show at the Daily Grind in Troy, in preparation for the release of their debut album due out sometime next week. These delightful woodland sprites will be joined by the entirely danceable afro-pop group, Way Yes, and Albany-based folkie (and Myspace user) Carl Daniels. Doors open at 7:00pm, and tickets are a mere $6.50 in advance and $9 on the day of the show.

Although the schlep down to Troy might seem daunting, the drive is quick and it’s a pretty interesting city, with really cool historic buildings and fun stuff to do. I suggest a decadent meal at the boner/coronary inducing Dinosaur BBQ before the music. Standing up straight will be a chore, and you may sweat a lot, but it’ll definitely be worth it.

Friday, December 9 @ 7:00pm – The Daily Grind (46 3rd St. Troy, NY)

Skidmore Student Market

Monday, December 5th, 2011

a secular event

This Friday in Case the Skidmore Student Market returns.  Remember how cool this was when it was nice out? Well, it’s not going to be nice out but the market promises to be a good time.  Come out and support the crafts of your fellow students, or  commandeer a table with your own wares. It’s the perfect opportunity to buy holiday gifts or make some extra spending cash to spend at Walmart.

Even SkidmoreUnofficial might be selling posters (limited edition) to the adoring masses. There’s no better way to celebrate the end of the classes and to get in the holiday spirit then spending money.

Plus, our favorite folk band, Bailiwick will be leading everyone in secular sing-a-longs and selling their new CD.

Friday 11-3 @ Case Center

Lively Lucy’s Presents: Bailiwick w/ Noah & Jake

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Bailiwick in harsh, fluorescent lighting

Hey, remember indie folk darlings Bailiwick? Yeah I know, they haven’t done shit in like four months. My theory is that they still think they can draw a crowd, even though they treat their adoring fans with disdain. No doubt due to their massive egos. It’s a fucking disease with these kids.

Anyway, this Thursday September 29th at Falstaff’s, Bailiwick will deign to make music for us once again. Along with Ned’s high school friend on bass and former Senator-at-Large candidate  Hand-Me-Downs member Steve Yell on drums, they’ll be playing brand new, unheard songs. Some band called Noah & Jake will be playing too, but I don’t know who they are so I can’t vouch for them. I’m sure they’re alright though.

Bailiwick End Of The Semester Send Off

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Bailiwick, Skidmore’s acoustic darlings with hearts of gold and voices that ring in tune with nature’s incredible harmony, will be playing their final show of the semester at 3pm on Sunday at the Gazebo. This could possibly be your final opportunity to see them before they ‘make it’ and therefore your final opportunity to accrue the cultural capital associated with seeing bands before everyone and their mother knows about them.

The foursome has been sequestered in some Zankel dungeon recording an album all semester, and while it isn’t due on campus until early Fall you can get a little preview of the new material on their BandCamp. The group will also release a new single “Blue Ribbon pt. 1” at this Sunday’s show.

Those of you that foolishly tune your radios away from WSPN may also have heard a little live Bailiwick feature on 97.7 WEXT’s Local 518 spotlight, here they are jubilantly throwing their arms around WEXT DJ Chris Wienk.

Tonight is the SEC show with Wye Oak and Bailiwick in Falstaff’s and if you’re not piss-you-pants excited it is probably because you don’t know any better and need to study up. Remember, everyone promised to make this the best Falstaff’s show in the universe and if you guys let me down I’m going to be really upset.

Wye Oak’s new album Civilian comes out in 4 days but you can hear it on NPR.com and if we’re super lucky maybe we can hear it tonight.

SEC Presents: Wye Oak @ Falstaff’s

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Wye Oak, the wonderful Baltimore pairing of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack, will be playing Falstaff’s this Friday night thanks to the wonderful folks at SEC.

Wye Oak makes wonderful albums full of dreamy folk songs that usually contain one or two amazing curve ball tracks that sandwich snyths inbetween Stack’s drumming and then punch you in the nose with a good time. I like them. Also, Bailiwick is opening.

Remember when Falstaff’s shows were amazing? This is going to be like that. This is going to be one of those Falstaff’s shows where everyone is the perfect amount of drunk and happy and in love and everyone will dance. If you remember way back when Wye Oak opened for Ted Leo and the Pharmacists then you know that they kill it live and that the chance to see them play live for free just one week before they debut their much anticipated fourth release Civilian and blow up and become everyone’s favorite band is a fantastic opportunity.
