There really is a fantastic run of events this weekend, and what made the cut was put ahead P.S Eliot/Ought at Market Hotel, Allah-Las at Baby’s All Right, and The Album Leaf at Littlefield to name a few. Slightly out of town is the excellent Don Giovanni-led New Alternative Music Festival out in Asbury Park. Finally, the 2016 Vendy Awards are at Governor’s Island on Saturday, and there are still a few tickets available at the time of writing, it’s always a great event, especially if you’re a fan of street food (2015 review here).
Idaho’s finest, Built to Spill, will be touring as a trio this Autumn which sees the band make two stops in New York. First off is a show at Irving Plaza on the 16th of September, and they’ll be back on the 5th October at Brooklyn Bowl. Both shows, rather tantalizingly, are with Alex G and Hop Along in what promises to be a fine triple bill. More details and video below the jump.
