Usually at this time of the week we contemplate the top 5 shows of the weekend, and indeed there are some great acts in town but for all intents and purposes there is only one show that really matters aside from the debut of Fliege at The Well on Thursday. Ken Stringfellow is playing a rare […]
Congratulations to everyone for making it through another week. I keep thinking it’s September already so rather than wishing the year away let’s back up a bit and try and enjoy what we have. The weekend looks to be almost perfect weather, afterall, so why not.
August seems pretty quiet on the show-front but at least the weekends are still strong and we’re still very much in free-summer-concert season. Providing the weather can hold out there are plenty of reasons to be outside in the coming days, so switch your brain off and try to enjoy yourselves.
Remember all those months ago when you wished it were summer? I for one could do without this humidity, but here we are, I hope you got what you wanted. We’ve got plenty of variety this week and even some things you can do for free, so let’s get on with it.
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).

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. Often playing solo or as a duo, Katie will be taking a full-band on tour that includes a show at Warsaw on the 15th of July, tickets are available here. The record is perhaps the most guitar-driven to […]
Greetings! I hope everyone made the most out of their July 4th celebrations, maybe you’re still hungover. There’s a bit of nostalgia in the air this weekend but plenty of great new acts too, let’s not waste any time this summer.
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 […]
