After kicking off Teen Tech, his exhibition at Morrison Hotel Gallery on the Bowery last night, Adam Green will be playing two shows at Bowery Ballroom tonight and Saturday– and we’ve got a pair of tickets for one lucky reader. Adam Green is a quintessential New Yorker, “eccentric, but perfect” according to legendary rock ‘n roll photog Mick Rock (who I had the extreme honor of chatting up last night)…. Also spotted at the event were Cory Kennedy, Becka Diamond, Macaulay Culkin, and Michael Grubbs of Wakey!Wakey!, as well as a slew of swanky downtowners.
For your chance to see Adam Green tomorrow night, head on over to our Facebook page and tell us why you’re a great New Yorker too! Or just hit up @freedubya over on Twitter with this:
I love Adam Green, almost as much as I love @freedubya
Glass Ghost might be the most reflective band name I’ve heard in a while. Their terribly fragile sound floats somewhat eerily over subtle keyboards and drum beats– a moving falsetto that played repeatedly during my hazy winter, but which also translates to sunshine times and naps in the park with great fluidity.
If you haven’t had a chance to see these guys live, today is your lucky day because FREEwilly has got you covered… well, one lucky reader anyway. If you want to win a pair of tickets to see Glass Ghost along with Brooklyn’s venerable Kaki King at Music Hall on 4/15, all you’ve gotta do is RT this over on Twitter, or comment on the contest thread on our Facebook page. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy, no?
Check out the video for Glass Ghost’s “Like A Diamond” after the jump…
Again, the folks at The L Mag got it just right. Maybe from now on, I’ll just copy and paste all of their opinions:
For the past few years, we had been of the opinion that Ted Leo and his Pharmacists had hit something of a low point in their career: Nothing had changed, exactly, and the songs they were writing weren’t bad; it just seemed like something was missing. On the brand new album, The Brutalist Bricks, though, whatever it was that was missing is back. It’s an immensely catchy record that you’ll want to play pretty much every time you fire up the grill this summer.
We tested this theory on a rooftop last night, and it seems to be true. So if you wanna kick off the early summer weather with Mr. Leo, just head on over to our Facebook page for a chance to win a pair of tickets to tomorrow night’s show at The Fillmore at Irving Plaza.
Need some more convincing? Here’s a video of Ted Leo & the Pharmacists covering Tears for Fears (once you get past all the Starbucks product placement, it’s pretty rad):
From The L Magazine:
Pitchfork destroyed the new Midlake record, The Courage of Others, with a shockingly low 3.6, and we find ourselves hoping, more than ever, that people don’t take their word as gospel. It’s a beautiful record, clearly inspired by British folk music, and as engrossing as any we’ve heard all year.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! That’s why we have two copies of Midlake’s newest album for two lucky readers… one vinyl and one CD. Just head over to our Facebook page and comment on the contest thread, and The Courage of Others can be all yours. Don’t forget to specify why records are awesome, or why you still own a CD player…
And be sure to check out Midlake tonight at the Bowery Ballroom with John Grant!
Here’s the exclusive premiere of Langhorne Slim’s session with San Francisco based blog Yours Truly as he belts out “Cinderella” off of the folk crooner’s Be Set Free, which captured our wide-eyed hearts late last year.
Plus, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for Langhorne’s show tomorrow night at City Winery– just comment on the Facebook contest thread for your chance to win!
