Well the week hasn’t had much of a bang at all, but we do get to end it with some great shows. I’m not going to beat around the bus today, you’ve got plans to make.
The Mountain Goats were in town recently but that was just an opening slot for Jason Isbell (albeit at the wonderful Beacon Theatre). A headline tour was announced last month which included a nearby show in Jersey City at the recently re-opened White Eagle Hall (tickets). However, while an NYC date was missing from those shows, […]
Let’s try not to die in the heat this weekend, remember the stay hydrated and see plenty of good bands. You can even see some great outdoor shows this weekend too, so be careful out there.
Katie Crutchfield’s fourth Waxahatchee album, Out in the Storm, is being released by Merge Records on the 14th of July.

Greetings! It’s kinda July 4th weekend, I guess, even if that falls on a Tuesday. Maybe some of you are lucky enough to have Monday off as well. We aren’t just celebrating America in the coming days, either, our neighbours to the North have a fairly significant milestone. Regardless of what you even care about, […]

Summer is officially here and while you might have to plan around some thunderstorms in the coming days, all the more reason to be in air-conditioned music venue having a good […]
The Northside Festival concluded with a headline set by Thursday at McCarren Park on Sunday the 11th of June. A week on, we’ve had some time to collect our thoughts on what is always a whirlwind and enjoyable weekend.
While Memorial Day is supposed to officially signal the start of summer, there’s nothing like the Northside Festival that really makes it feel like the season is here; it may just be our favourite part of the year. With over 300 bands playing this time around it’s impossible to see everything, so we’re here to […]
