If the city happens to be getting you down, this is one of those weekends that remind you why you slog through every day, the options available to you are varied and outstanding. Here’s to keeping on keeping on.
We all know that Halloween weekend is one of New York’s most epic hangs, and believe me when I say this year the party offerings are looking BOO-tiful! I won’t spend too much time tell you why you should go out… instead I’ll just cut straight to the chase and tell you where to go. […]
Damn, it’s hard to believe it’s the second to last release week in October, but here we are. Dig in, never let go, and, um, keep holding on to black metal?
I take every opportunity to wax lyrical about Chilean psych bands when they come to town, but sadly The Holydrug Couple‘s show at Public Arts on Friday was canceled as the band could not make it. Alas, hopefully there will be another opportunity to hear about how their most recent release, Hyper Super Mega is an excellent addition […]
I’m still playing metal catch-up after mostly unplugging last weekend. Take one day off this time of year, however, and you miss five AOTY contenders, so let’s get started.

For one, the senate basically just said f*ck you to sexual assault survivors by giving a self-proclaimed spokesperson for beer in a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court. But honestly, I […]
I was a big fan of Molly Burch‘s 2017 debut album, Please Be Mine, calling it an effortlessly smooth collection of ten tracks. Her follow-up, First Flower, is out this Friday (the 5th) again via Captured Tracks. The record is as impeccable and immaculate as her debut, but there is so much more confidence in the material that really […]
It’s that time of year again! The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival starts tonight, kicking off a four-day celebration of all things dance! For the 10-year milestone, BEMF has joined forced with Mixmag, Camp David and various local promoters to bring some of the scene’s most eclectic acts to our fair borough. Of course, part of what makes BEMF […]
Brooklyn was certainly alive this past Saturday. With nonstop jams out of Brooklyn Bowl, Rough Trade, and Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Comes Alive’s fourth annual festival far exceeded expectations. Hosted by Live for Live Music, the one day event provides a platform for musicians from a variety of bands to join forces and create some real […]
