We’ve almost survived another week, and there are some just rewards coming everyone’s way. If you want something a little more unconventional as well, then we can take you to the stars and beyond this weekend. Either way, enjoy yourselves, you’ve earned it.
It’s going to be a hot one this weekend. Drink responsibly, use sunscreen and maybe, just maybe, some good shows will be able to make us forget we’re melting, just for a few brief moments. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor options for you below.
Vinyl subscription service Vinyl Me, Please is partnering with All My Friends to present “THE SPINS” – a night to celebrate vinyl and local live music featuring NJ-based alt-pop band Brick + Mortar, BK-based pop-rock band Spirit Animal, and BK-based blues-rock duo The Grizzled Mighty.

You spend half the year waiting for summer and then you go to the beach and get terrible sunburn that still hasn’t gone away 5 days later. I’m here to tell you that summer is awful and you should just stay within 4 walls and listen to some live bands instead.

Thanks to Pete for subbing last week. Nothing helps me get over disappointing election results and earth shattering musicians dying (RIP Prince) than blowing a chunk of cash on records, so it’s more than fortuitous that my favourite label, The Numero Group, are hosting their third annual pop up this weekend; You can head over to 170 Franklin Street from Thursday until Sunday (details here).

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 en-route to where you’re going, there are some great shows to be seen.
