Jane’s Addiction headlined the CBGB festival this weekend in Times Square, which also included the legitimately legendary, Devo. I squeezed in to a packed crowd for Devo’s 4:30pm set before heading off to see Jeff the Brotherhood and Diarrhea Planet at Death By Audio. We have full video sets from both bands below, courtesy of (((unartig))).

Wearing a black jumpsuit and red nails, Perfume Genius put a spell on the wall to wall crowd at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The set was filled with melodic and poetic songs as usual, interspersed with a few bolder, up tempo tunes. Mike Hadreas’ music is clear and uncrowded, letting his vocal talent take the […]
Provided your eardrums haven’t reduced to shrapnel after last week’s onslaught of new metal, you’ll be pleased to hear this week brings yet another home-brewed batch of sonic insanity. Stuffed to the stitches with death, doom, occult, and all forms of extremity in between, today reinforces what we all already knew: There’s no rest for […]
Output has been absolutely killing it on the lineup front lately. No, seriously. Did you go to Pete Tong’s packed show there last Thursday? Talk about impressive builds. I haven’t seen a crowd go HAM like that since Electric Zoo. Plus the light show was just epic. Okay, I’ll stop rubbing it in. No worries […]
Having seen Tampa’s Merchandise all over Brooklyn and Manhattan, at venues as small as Home Sweet Home, 285 Kent (RIP), Saint Vitus and Glasslands, and as big as Bowery and Villain, it’s fitting they’re finding some middle ground at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight.

Former Lower East Side music venue The Living Room closed on October 26th of last year. This year on October 21st the venue will reemerge with a soft opening for CMJ. The new venue is located on 134 Metropolitan Ave (Between Wythe and Berry) in Williamsburg. Check out their website for the schedule of events.
If you missed out on one of American Football’s three sold out Webster Hall reunion shows this weekend… well, you may have lucked out. The influential emo band just announced a surprise late night set at St. Vitus at 12:30 tonight! Tickets are just $5 at the door, first come first serve. See ya there…
King Tuff serenaded his audience with some good old fashioned rock and roll on Wednesday night. Shows at Baby’s are so effortlessly easy due to their decent happy hour until 8pm, $5 drafts coupled with a $7 burger/salad make your evening plans a no-brainer (you can also get a miller for $3 but really, that’s just an […]
I asked the lead singer of The Orwells Mario Cuomo what the band’s goal was, and his response – “It might not be good to have one. If you reach that, then you’ll be totally fucked.” And going from garage band to world tour in just a few years, I think I’ll take that advice. […]
