New week, more metal, short intro. Let’s get to it. WHAT TO HEAR: Getting us underway this week is an early AOTY contender from the heart of the bleak, god-forsaken heart of the Midwest: Locktender’s Friedrich (Moment of Collapse). Built from the ashes of Men As Trees, Locktender’s focus is a narrow but engrossing one, with […]
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 […]
Is it just me, or is this month flying by already? Sometimes I worry that I’m going to wake up one day and wonder where my life has gone. One way I counteract those feelings of hopelessness is by intentionally filling my days with more experience and exploration. At least Brooklyn keeps the task simple. […]
