When we saw Curtis Harding at Glasslands way back in 2014, I wondered how long it would be before he was playing larger venues, such as Bowery Ballroom, and that the man should be a superstar. It’s taken longer than I thought, but Curtis finally plays at Bowery on the 30th of March, the show […]
Now that we’ve survived the storm that wasn’t… hopefully everyone can look forward to a weekend of great shows. Including my favourite New York band, and not in the sense of predicting 12″ of snow and delivering maybe 1″, sometimes hyperbole is justified.
We’ve got another excellent list of almost exclusively local bands to enjoy this weekend and thankfully we seemed to breeze through February, it’ll time to enjoy Spring before we know it!
I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, survived valentine’s day, and is generally looking forward to making plans for Spring. After a couple more quiet weeks show-wise, we’re back with some fine choices.
Happy February everyone! While some may consider it the worst month, it may come as sweet relief to those who managed to survive a dry January. This weekend is a time to celebrate local talent and enjoy something a little up close and personal.
Greetings and welcome to the first “Top 5 shows of the weekend” of 2018! It has been a slow start to the year, but that’s about to change for the better. We’ve been looking forward to a couple of these ones in particular for quite some time and it’s not supposed to get below freezing […]
You may be wondering what happened to the “top five shows of the weekend” column but fear not, it has just been a slow start to the year. Things pick up massively next week thanks to The Posies, celebrating their 30th anniversary with Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer performing as an acoustic duo at City Winery […]
Dan Bejar’s latest Destroyer album, Ken, sailed into 9th place in our top 25 albums of 2017 list, and deservedly so, we said: Following the bombastic and dreary Poison Season we’re happy to report that Destroyer’s Ken is a fantastic rebound. Most reminiscent of 2011’s Kaputt, Ken is yet another strange, sax-filled (and-sex-filled) journey through 80s synth-pop. Where a lesser artist would simply rehash a […]
Greetings! Apologies for the post-thanksgiving-lull in this series, you may also be trying to get over. Before we get to all the end-of-year lists we’ve still got some time to enjoy the present moment and get to some shows (we can still do that all the time anyway, but our list is excellent, I promise).
I hope you all got out there and voted this week, and now that you’ve fulfilled your civic responsibilities it’s time to have some fun. If fun means singer-songwriter, shoegaze, chillwave or some folky-indie, anyway…
