Good news, New York is now a blue state (Republicans have held the state senate almost without a break for fifty years). Also good news, it’s the weekend. Bonus good news, the following shows:
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 […]
And suddenly we’re hurtling towards mid-October. Whilst Halloween edges nearer, there’s nothing horrific about the quality of options bestowed upon you this weekend – although I won’t blame you if you just want to stay in and watch horror movies instead, ’tis the season!
Kiwi quartet The Beths have released the catchiest and most hook-laden record I’ve heard this year with Future Me Hates Me via Carpark Records. Each band member studied jazz at university, though the record is about as unabashedly power-pop as it gets, it has certainly given them all the chops they could possibly need by the sounds of […]
Happy start-of-the-world-cup day, everyone! With the tournament now underway in Russia (for whom Trump is presumably cheering), the time difference works in our favour to watch games and then still be free in the evening to hit up some concerts, which is handy because everything below the jump is an absolutely outstanding option.

It’s nice to have had a few weeks where it’s still light out in the evening, summer concert announcements can’t be too far away and we’ve got metal, dance, pop, experimental and soul […]
I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, survived valentine’s day, and is generally looking forward to making plans for Spring. After a couple more quiet weeks show-wise, we’re back with some fine choices.
I hope you all got out there and voted this week, and now that you’ve fulfilled your civic responsibilities it’s time to have some fun. If fun means singer-songwriter, shoegaze, chillwave or some folky-indie, anyway…
I really don’t have anything useful to say for an intro, but fortunately I do have five very useful recommendations for you all this weekend.
While some of the major players have already announced their summer festival lineups (Panorama / Govball), which admittedly doesn’t seem too far away with today’s high of 15 degrees C, but let’s stick with the present. We only have one more weekend until an orange clown has the nuclear codes, so maybe we should just […]
