Brooklyn’s own Big Thief released second album Capacity in June via Saddle Creek, it’s really quite a wonderful and intimate record with a perfect balance of sombre and hopeful moments. Produced by Andrew Sarlo (whos credits include Local Natives, Nick Hakim, Show Me the Body and more), there is a cabin-in-the-woods style quality to the songs but it’s rare for an […]
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, […]
After completing another orbit around the sun recently, things are going reasonably well, and this good run continues with a great weekend of shows! 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.

I hope everyone had a good long weekend last time around (thanks to Pete for covering), I’m still in the UK and am looking forward to seeing Slowdive in Oxford and Justin Currie in London this weekend, but if I were here, I’d be hitting some of these up.
Still processing the news that Chris Cornell died today, Soundgarden have always been a huge favourite. I’ll be in Lisbon this weekend on a much needed break but I’m still trying not to be disappointed at missing some of these. Anyway, I’ll console myself with seafood and wine and you enjoy yourselves with bass, guitars, […]
I’m going to shut up and let the music do the talking this week, there’s a little nostalgia sprinkled among some releases fresh off the block.
Yes, yes, May the Fourth Be With You and all that jazz, the real nerds know it’s also Cinco De Cuatro, and I’m also looking forward to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 (bonus nerd points to anyone who has seen and loved James Gunn’s earlier movies, Slither (extra extra points for seeing it at […]
I’ll start by mentioning something you should do this weekend that isn’t a concert: re-issue specialists The Numero Group will have a pop-up store this Friday and Saturday at 170 Franklin St in Greenpoint, go and spend all your money. Anyway, you can do that and STILL go to shows, of course, and these are the ones you […]
