Well it doesn’t quite feel like Spring yet but there I’m trying to bring a little optimism to the table this week. 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 […]
No reason for wanton circumlocution this week, we’re going to get right down to it. Have a great weekend, everyone, hopefully enhanced by the fine options below. 5) Bambara, Ritual Humor, One Prayer One Sin, Decorum at ALPHAVILLE While Bambara have been bashing out distorted, Birthday Party-esque noise for half a decade, the band’s latest offering, Swarm, […]
While we’re still dealing with rollercoaster weather patterns, one can’t help but feel that summer is threatening to happen eventually… we’ve had the schedules for Celebrate Brooklyn, Summerstage, 4knots and more. So enjoy today’s sunshine and deal with the rain at the weekend… it can’t last forever! It has been a good week, with La Sera’s […]
Dilly ding, dilly dong. We can cut the smalltalk, you really have some great options this weekend and the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, Beverly, Waxahatchee and a Woods/Ultimate Painting double-header didn’t even make the cut. If you aren’t getting out to see a show, I’m not sure I can ever be any help.
Today is St Patrick’s Day… fantastic… now everyone in the city who ever saw a picture of a four leaf clover or had a pint of Guinness is apparently Irish. I might just curl up in a ball and hide, but that would be a mistake, because if you can avoid all the green pavement pizzas […]
If you’re reading this, congratulations on surviving another week. As a reward, there are some excellent shows to be seen this weekend, free of invented “buzz”, just hands-on DIY venues and bands doing what they love.
