Halloween would not be Halloween without GWAR, and Brooklyn was lucky enough to have the Richmond band perform a free blood-drenched show at House of Vans on Saturday. Playing into the angst of the 2016 political season, the show featured a cage-match between a costumed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – neither of them fared […]
We were seriously mourning the end of 2016’s House of Vans concert series. Thankfully, they just announced a surprise show TONIGHT with Dinosaur Jr. and Screaming Females. RSVP is still available here.
Since the last “Top 5 shows of the weekend”, we’ve crossed the first official day of summer, I’ve somehow managed to survive another full orbit of the sun, and best of all, finally made it out to Hometown BBQ. It hasn’t all been good though, just to add to the rotten run of form 2016 […]
Summer was well and truly ushered in this last weekend as the Northside Festival concluded its 8th year. With a 400+ roster of bands among dozens of venues, there was no shortage of entertainment; Free Williamsburg staff made a credible stab at doing as much as possible, and our thoughts are below – the best […]
Sure, there’s plenty going on tonight. BUT, if you RSVPed, House of Vans concert has a great line-up tonight with Paranoyds, Sunflower Bean, Bad Bad Not Good and DIIV. Set times below:

No, if you’ve come this far into the week and still haven’t decided if dressing up as Pizza Rat is the thing to […]

The night of Hallows’ eve brings Vans, McNett and special guest collaborators together to transform the expansive House of Vans event space into an enthralling psychedelic arena. The […]
It’s the weekend before CMJ, so it would seem like a good time for a live music fan to relax and charge their batteries. However, this is one of the strongest weekends for shows I can think of this year, don’t consider this a top 5, they are all deserving of the number one spot.
Happy memorial day weekend! This has already been a great week for shows, with Courtney Barnett on Tuesday and TV On the Radio on Wednesday already setting things up nicely. If you’re away travelling, you’ll be missing some outstanding music!
