Greetings! Apologies for the post-thanksgiving-lull in this series, you may also be trying to get over. Before we get to all the end-of-year lists we’ve still got some time to enjoy the present moment and get to some shows (we can still do that all the time anyway, but our list is excellent, I promise).
We’re in the home stretch of this wretched orbit, where end-of-year lists could read more like obituaries. Let’s try and be optimistic for a few minutes at least, and marvel at the stupendous options we have to entertain us this weekend.
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 […]
Who said summer was supposed to be nice anyway… with thunderstorms forecast for much of the weekend, you might as well spend it inside somewhere watching bands! Let’s not beat around the bush, here are some recommendations…

I’m gonna level with you guys: It’s been a shitty couple of weeks in the music world. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t want to live in a world without Lemmy, without Bowie, without rockstars—a world where the arbiters of “cool” are PR-approved cardboard cutouts and the escapes on offer to high […]
Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. Let us celebrate in style.
Oppressive humidity appears to be the order of the day at the moment, just in time for a myriad of outdoor shows. Alas, cavorting is always preferable to hopeless ennui. Remember though kids, stay hydrated and wear your earplugs, and after that public service announcement, it’s on with this weekend’s best shows…
With Maryland Deathfest on the way this weekend, some of you are probably a little preoccupied at the moment and I get that. But the best way to prep for a metric ton of metal is with even more metal, so make sure to give this week’s installment of This One Goes To Eleven a […]
