Ty Segall, arguably the hardest working man in rock and roll, returned yet again this year with his new album Freedom’s Goblin, released via Drag City. This album once again sees the tireless Segall working alongside The Freedom Band, consisting of his longtime bandmates Mikal Cronin and Charles Moothart, and rounded out by both Emmett Kelly and Ben Boye.

The Freedom Band has been backing him on the current tour in support of Freedom’s Goblin just like they did when we saw him play Warsaw last year. After playing Brooklyn Steel just the night before, the band made the trek north for a performance at the historic Capitol Theatre.

Ty Segall at Warsaw (May 19, 2017)

By Will Oliver, June 6th 2017

Give credit to Ty Segall, the man is always changing it up. Whether it’s the expansion of his garage rock sound, to the name of the band that he tours with (this time it’s The Freedom Band – which includes longtime bandmates Mikal Cronin and Charles Moothart, as well as Emmett Kelly and Ben Boye), you can always expect something new from the prolific Ty.

He’s currently on tour in support of his self-titled new album, which he released via Drag City. He recently stopped in for a sold out three-night run at Warsaw, and we caught the final night on May 19.

Ty Segall and the Muggers at Webster Hall (February 28, 2016)

1_Ty Segal and the Muggers_Webster Hall

In February I dedicated two nights to Ty Segall and the craziness of his Emotion Muggers. The first came on February 11, when Ty and his band of misfits destroyed Baby’s All Right for a last minute free, very late night set.

The second show came on February 28, when the group played the second of a two-night run at Webster Hall. It was as chaotic as ever, with Ty once again donning the creepy baby mask, and throwing diapers and toilet paper out to the crowd. It was total pandaemonium, as usual.

Find some photos of Ty and the Muggers set that night, along with The Men and Dion Lunadon, who opened the show.

Ty Segall and The Muggers at Baby’s All Right (February 11, 2016)

On February 11, Ty Segall scared the shit out of national audiences when he, and his current band The Muggers, caused chaos and destruction on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. As if that wasn’t enough, they kept the good vibes going later on that night when later that day they were revealed to be a secret guest at the tiny Baby’s All Right for an insane late show at the ungodly hour of 2 am.

Ty Segall at Mercury Lounge (June 26, 2015)

This summer indie rocks hardest worker Ty Segall returned to New York for 4-intimate acoustic shows across the city, including performances at Baby’ All Right, Bell House, Mercury Lounge and Rough Trade NYC.

I caught his performance at Mercury Lounge on June 26, which was the first of two shows for him that night, with a performance at Rough Trade NYC immediately following. It featured an opening set from Nashville folk artist William Tyler, who warmed up the crowd with a beautiful set of finger-picked goodness.

The last time I saw Segall play was at one of the final Death By Audio performances in November, as well as his absolutely bonkers headlining show at Webster Hall. This time around he went unplugged, playing a set of acoustic songs from all over his catalog, but mostly pertaining to last year’s mega album, Manipulator. Segall had fun with the show, offering lighthearted, and often goofy covers of classic rockers such as Devo’s “Baby Talkin Bitches.”

Ty Segall at Death By Audio (November 14, 2014)

By Will Oliver, December 17th 2014 — with 2 comments

1_Ty Segall_DBA

November 14 was a quiet day, until Mikal Cronin tweeted out a photo of him and the rest of The Ty Segall band at Grand Central Station, confirming suspicions that Ty was the secret performer at Death By Audio that night.

I got there an hour before doors and although it was already a decently long line, I was pretty confident with the spot so I wasn’t too worried about getting in. Within 10 minutes the line grew tremendously, as word of Ty playing the tiny DBA started to spread. By the time I got in, I heard that the line had reached Kent Ave, likely with many disappointed fans who didn’t get in.

The bill featured opening sets from The Numerators and Guantanamo Baywatch who got the crowd warmed up. By the time Ty took the stage, there was a feeling of tension in the air that was just waiting to be unleashed.

Ty started the set with a rather touching thank you to Edan and the rest of DBA, reminiscing about their first show in NYC, which of course, was at DBA (as well as with Thee Oh Sees!) and had maybe 75 people in attendance. He also joked about owing the pedal company some royalties. It was a touching moment, a calm before the storm that broke out with the opening bits of heaving hitter “Wave Goodbye.”

Ty Segall and La Luz at Webster Hall (September 18, 2014)

1_Ty Segall_Webster Hall

The last time that I saw both Ty Segall and La Luz, it was at what I still call the best show that I’ve seen all year. It went down at a tiny little guitar shop in the outskirts of Austin, Texas during SXSW. It was unmatched it its raging energy, that is until last night, when I just happened to catch both of them playing together again, this time at a packed out Webster Hall.

Ty Segall - Manipulator

Whenever Ty Segall’s name comes up, you know the word “prolific” is lingering just around the corner. And if you take minute to really consider how much music he’s put out in a career of about seven years – seven solo albums (that’s one a year since 2008) in addition to a relentless torrent of singles, EPs, side projects, like Fuzz (for which he plays drums and sings), and collaborations, like the album Hair he did with White Fence and Reverse Shark Attack with long-time friend and bandmate Mikal Cronin – you inadvertently find yourself asking, in a somewhat bemused fashion, “How the fuck does he make so much music?” But what’s truly striking about Segall’s preternatural output is not so much the sheer quantity of albums, singles, and side projects he’s involved with at any given time, but the quality control he’s (so far) been able to maintain.

Normally, and I’m sure you’ve all witnessed this firsthand, a band will really lock into a sound, producing one or two interesting and important albums, but will inevitably be pigeonholed by the pitchfork-wielding arbiters of cool, having run into a wall artistically, reaching the limits of their aesthetic. Such bands wind up operating for a while as pale imitations of themselves, and eventually are absorbed back into the shadows of obscurity. But Segall, with uncommonly light feet, has (again, so far) defied that trajectory. Just when you think he’ll hit a downturn, the boosters kick in and he ascends to new and greater heights.
