Last Saturday experimental avant-garde crew “Silver Process” played on a roof in Bushwick. The five-piece created a live score to Jess Franco’s trash classic “Die Säge des Todes“. The personnel for this special performance was Joe Merolla – cello, Chuck Bettis – electronics, Dave Miller – percussion, Jeff Tobias – alto saxophone and Dylan Angell […]
Watch clips of Wild Nothing and DIIV playing River Rocks at Pier 84 last night. This was hands down the longest line I have seen for a (free) show since that infamous 77Boadrum performance in Dumbo back in 2007. Thousands of people. Good times.
Punk meets Art. Rhode Island maniacs Tinsel Teeth and Doomsday Student (ex Arab On Radar) ravished Death by Audio on Saturday. Tinsel Teeth are easily amongst the most ‘physical’ live performers out there, while Doomsday Student flat out make your ears explode with their signature No Wave assaults. NSFW video edits of both sets are […]
As mentioned in the post below, this show will go down as 2012’s most sweltering event. Even though they do have a new and pretty wicked industrial sized A/C at the warehouse on Kent, condensation started dripping from the ceiling 2 minutes into Trash Talk’s set. Bodies were flying all over the place, swinging from […]
A bit of a belated post, but on July 14 Thurston Moore & Loren Connors played The Stone in Manhattan as part of Spy Fest. Watch about half of the performance below. That day I was convinced, this would qualify for ‘hottest show of the year’. Needless to say, I hadn’t been to the Trash […]
Despite getting ‘slightly’ interrupted by a fire on Pier 17, last Saturday’s 4Knots Festival ran more or less smoothly. The show was stopped for about 40 minutes, causing set list cuts and delays for the remaining 3 bands on the main stage. At least it wasn’t cancelled altogether as the pier at one point was […]
House of Vans continued their 2012 run of free shows last night with a swinging bill of classic hardcore/punk. Next to early 80’s legends 7 Seconds, H2O delivered the goods in a melodic and crowd pleasing fashion. Throughout both band’s sets, the packed out warehouse was full of roving circle- and mosh pits. Even though […]
New York City slow-core legends Codeine graced the Bell House in Brooklyn last night with a rare reunion show. The hour long set included a collaboration with Stephen Brodsky for the song “Cave-in”. Video of which is below.
Last Friday Deafheaven and Indian Jewelry co-headlined the Pitchfork/Weird Northside Festival showcase at Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint. While knowing well in advance what kind of blistering sonic bliss to expect from Deafheaven, Indian Jewelry’s strobe infused tribaldelia won us over by complete surprise. Check out some videos from the show below. More videos after […]
Experimental and avant-garde outfit “Den Svarta Fanan” will be at The Acheron on June 20. This show is a special collaboration of music & words about the Japanese Fukushima nuclear-reactor meltdown & anti-nuclear movement’s response. It will feature Yuko Tonohira (voice), Nonoko Yoshida (alto), Joe Merolla (bass) and Weasel Walter (drums). Full details below.
