4/22 @ 12:00p: The words we’ve all been waiting to hear since the band popped up on summer fest bills across the globe have finally been uttered: Animal Collective is playing NYC. See ‘em July 12 at Prospect Park. Tickets are $40. Hits of Molly extra.
4/22 @ 12:00p: The first show announced in this summer’s recently salvaged, OSA-benefiting Williamsburg Waterfront concert series is Kid Cudi on July 6. Tickets are an exorbitant $60. All I gotta say is OSA better figure out the McCarren Park/Waterfront situation before we resort to appropriately-priced cultural activities in Red Hook or some other savage neighborhood.
4/22 @ 12:00p: Cut Copy returns (they played Terminal 5 on 4/2) to get you all dancey-sweaty in Prospect Park on August 11. Tickets are $40.
4/22: Garage rockers Bass Drum of Death headline at Glasslands the night before their Crocodiles/Fresh & Onlys show (see below). So So Glos, Xray Eyeballs and Night Manager also play. I believe the correct term for the evening is “shambling”. Tickets are $10.
4/23: Cali noise-poppers Crocodiles and Fresh & Onlys play Music Hall on Saturday with Young Prisms and Bass Drum of Death. Tickets are under $15. Killer.
4/23: Zola Jesus brings her glazed, dark pop, think Florence + the Machine with balls or Siouxsie without the hair and the sneer, to Bowery Ballroom with openers Naked on the Vague. Tickets are $16.
